MLP: FiM – NATG 2012 Day 1 – Armoured Dusky

Weee, NATG is back for a bit, so it’s time to show off what I’ve learned since June. This is my submission for theme 1: draw an armoured pony.

Given the tone of the little RP blip that went with the theme post, I decided to start with a personal touch and use Dusky Down.

She’s a pretty practical girl, so I went with some plain light weight leather-esque type armour (so nothing ornate here). Kept her scarf and added a bandanna (similar to her Pony Emblem design) to give her that speedy skirmisher type of look.

Was in a bit of a slump today (for personal reasons), so this took way longer than it should have. Looking at about 4 hours, with the sketch taking an extra hour because I suddenly sucked at hind legs again. I could have really used that time to touch up the shading. Oh, well, it wouldn’t be a NATG submission without frantically rushing around near the deadline, would it? Done with my 2H-HB-2B trio.
