MLP: FiM – Double Sparkle

This is my third submission for the Artist Training Grounds’ week 31 theme: draw a pony in a competition. This one is a little meta, since I like to draw with both my graphite and Prismacolours (even if I end up going with graphite most of the time). There are two Twis here competing for my attention.

The graphite Twi is pretty standard fare, receiving minor experimentation and fixes to my technique.

For the Prismacolour Twi, I restricted myself on just how much black I was allowed to use to force me to try to blend other colours to achieve volume. I think it more or less worked, although the scanner did some weird things with the colours. For instance, I used Indigo Blue to shade the Violet in her mane and bangs and while in real life, the purple stayed decently prominent in most places, when scanned it turned into a light blue. A similar thing happened with her pink streak. Shaded the 929 pink (no name given) with Orchid and in real life, it was almost painfully pink where I didn’t use a lot of Orchid. After scanning, it’s quite magenta.

This took at whopping 6 hours altogether, using the 2H-HB-2B trio on the left and Prismacolours on the right.
