This is my third submission for the Artist Training Grounds’ week 47 theme: draw a tenebrous pony. This time I’m playing on the obscure/unknown part of the definition. It’s pretty hard for anything to fit that more than the god of chaos. Q is also in there in part because Lauren Faust quoted him as an inspiration for Discord and in part because I’m going to see if I can’t get this signed by John de Lancie at BronyCon.
This is another one of those 10+ hour drawings (I kind of lost track on this one). I spent about 3/4 the time on half of it. One guess as to which half that was. >.> Seriously, I regretted my decision to go semi-realistic about an hour in. Because man are lips hard to make look good.
EDIT: Well, 2 more hours of effort and I’m not really much closer to his likeness. Still uploading the revised copy because the face is far more defined.
