MLP: FiM – Luna’s Dorky Smile

This is my first submission for the Artist Training Grounds’ week 40 theme: draw an old pony. And, well, if being over 1000 years old doesn’t qualify one as old, I don’t know what does.

I decided I needed more practice with the alicorn facial features and this them pretty much dropped the opportunity right in my lap. I wanted to do a close up portrait, as I hadn’t done one of those in a while, so I ended up having to cut out a decent portion of Luna’s mane (her horn also came dangerously close to losing a bit of its top).

There’s some general mistakes, including some features of the FiM standard style that I failed to adapt properly for 3D space, but I’m overall pretty happy with the outcome. In particular, I’m really happy with the way that her snout just kind of worked out.

Anyway, this ran me about 6.5 hours over two days using the 2H-HB-2B trio.
