Why? Well, why not?
This is a double up submission for the EqD Happy Derpy event and my second for the Artist Training Grounds’ week 36 theme: draw a pony traveling. Dunno where she’s going, but it’s making her happy, so that’s all that matters, right?
Lately I’ve found myself doing at lot of harder shading, being all Twi level OCD about keeping my pencils sharp and all that. So for this one, I decided to step back and bit and balance things out a bit more. This was a lot more conducive to my blending and it shows. The pose was a little tough, but surprisingly, it didn’t give me nearly as much trouble as I thought it would. Did a full page background (well, as much of a background as open sky is) for the first time in forever. I really need to do more of them to get better.
Anyway, this ran me a little shy of 6 hours using my Prismacolor pencils.
