Well, I thought I’d do a quick ponysona update since my ability to draw has improved quite a bit even compared to last time. Then I ended up fighting with the eye shine, small portion of hair and scarf because I screwed up some lines during my tracework. And even now the left eye still bugs me a bit.
Anyway, pretty straight forward, sketch, scan and digitize process that I normally do. Adjusted the coat outline from the full on black to a dark grey, which I think looks much better. I think she’s looking a little girlier than in my previous renditions, which seems a little odd since I haven’t really changed her design. But maybe that’s just because I’ve got the proportions and overall style closer to that of the show’s mares now.
Oh and I came up with a more Equestrian name for her: Dusky Down (pretty forward, just black quill/feather, which has the simple double meaning of referring to either the writing instrument or her plumage). But since this is a ponysona in addition to an OC (with a personality that is starting to differ a bit from my own), Kuroi is probably going to stick around as an alternate reference for her outside of fanfics.
