This is my second submission for the Artist Training Grounds’ week 35 theme: draw a pony in an imitation of another work. Basically the second I remembered what the box art looked like for the original C&C, I knew I wanted to spoof it. The drawing doesn’t include the logos because I felt they just get in the way. Ended up ditching the background too because the most interesting thing I wanted to experiment with Twi as the replacement for the infantryman. Namely because of the greyscale style on everything except for the goggle lens. It was very interesting to work with.
Overall, I think this turned out really well. The whole thing ran me about 5 hours with the 2H-HB-2B trio and Prismacolors combined. Although what I’m especially pleased is that this drawing was basically done with my drawing hand bandaged and there’s no noticeable drop in quality.
