Because Fluttershy demands it… you cannot resist the stare.
Anyway, this one’s general practice, with the whole usual working on the coat texture thing. Felt like drawing Fluttershy and thought about doing an angry expression, but then decided to try to do the stare from memory. Ended up needing to pull up a reference picture anyway, though. I also never noticed how much Stareshy looks like an angry straight haired Pinkie. Granted, if I hadn’t cut everything off right below her chin, the rest of the mane would have made it obvious I was drawing Fluttershy.
Done in 2 hours using the 2H-HB-2B trio. And today I used a kneaded eraser for the first time. I can’t believe I ever drew without one.
