This is my first submission for the Artist Training Grounds’ week 32 theme: draw a blue pony. Blue pony is feeling blue.
I played with her muzzle a bunch here to see what I’d end up with. And the result is vaguely feline. Hmmm, gogo horse-kitty Dashie? I also had to toy around with her mouth. The Super Cider reference gave her a positioning that wouldn’t look good at all with a 3D pony. I was actually convinced I’ve have to change the expression entirely, but turns out moving it was just enough.
I also detailed her eyes near the very start, so I spent nearly 3.5 hours with her staring into my soul, as though asking “Why, Kuroi, why? Is this what Twilight feels like when you write about her?” >.>
