The Cadence guy pointed and said “That one’s cute.”
“CUTE?! Listen bud, I, Rainbow Dash, am many things. I’m awesome, I’m radical, I am the Iron Pony, the loyalest of friends. But I am not ‘cute’!”
“She’s right,” that Rose person said. “She’s not cute.”
Cadence and Rose both smiled like they knew some big joke was coming
Then Cadence said “Yeah, SHE’S ADORABLE!”
“All right, that’s it!” Rainbow Dash swung her hooves at Cadence, who put his arms up and laughed. It was like he thought she was playing.
This is a promotional image I threw together to help drum up some interest for the upcoming reboot of the fanfic If, Wherever We Go (by NoGiantRobots1983). It’s an epic adventure fic that makes use of (and lampshades) some video game RPG elements. I’ll link to it once the re-release happens. Until then, enjoy this little teaser.
Doing a big scene like this really made me feel like my skills almost weren’t up to the task. There’s lots of little things that bug me, not the least of which is sometimes a line well laid in graphite ends up looking a bit off after inking. Also, bare bones holding cells don’t make great backgrounds.
On the other hand, I got to find out just how great this style works with Dashie. And overall, this is my best blending work to date.
This ran me something like… I kind of lost track. 10 hours I guess? Sketched in 2H, inked in 0.1mm pigment liner and coloured in Prismacolor.
