Weee, theme wordplay. This is my second submission for the Artist Training Grounds’ week 40 theme: draw an old pony. So here’s old style Twilight. This is one of those drawings that started out as something quick, but then she looked nice enough that I wanted to do finer detail than cross hatching.
And that was how I ended up spending 4 hours on a G1 MLP. I still don’t really get why people dislike the G1 design (although I did add actual hooves on a whim). I think it looks nice (I especially like G1 Twilight’s mane… inb4 Sweetie Belle). One thing I am relieved they changed was in limiting the amount of objects in a cutie mark. Nine stars arranged like that is a bit of a pain.
