This is my first submission for the Artist Training Grounds’ week 35 theme: draw a pony while imitating an existing work. The top screen of this screenshot is what I was aiming to do my best replica of. Of course, given I’m not much of a digital artist and I was imitating a video game screen, my graphite couldn’t produce anything all that close to exact. This idea basically came to me as a combination of me playing Advance Wars: Days of Ruin again and thinking back to the EqD mock war event.
The Advance Wars art style, while anime inspired, is on the more realistically proportioned end of the scale, so I did my best to modify Twi to fit that. I lengthened her snout (although probably not enough) and shrunk her eyes down, shaping them in a more equine way (although still keeping anime style irises and pupils). I also repositioned her ear a bit and lengthened her body. The modification I feel iffiest about is I tried to adapt some of a real pony’s musculature structure into the drawing. It… looks a little strange on a book worm like Twi (and the scanner actually really brought out the chest muscles >.>).
