This is my second submission for the Artist Training Grounds’ week 20 theme: draw a pony solving a mystery. I’m pushing it a bit this time, since I didn’t do a comic, but Twilight is solving the mystery of what might happen if she tried mimicking the makeover spell Rarity used in Boast Busters. In short, I wanted an excuse to give Twi a makeover. >.>
Anyway, it took 2 hours to do this, which is pretty good all in all, since I designed her hair and outfit on the fly. I tried colour again while still maintaining my tried and true method of shading, which mostly worked. The last drawing I had used sky magenta for her coat because I didn’t think I had lavender. And then it turned out I did, so I gave that a go. Looks great in real life. Digital, my scanner thinks it’s a darkish purple (rage!).
