This is my second submission for the Artist Training Grounds’ week 55 theme: draw a pony ready for action. And Twi is all excited and ready for whatever whatever winter (wrap up) escapades may await her.
Not one of my best scans, especially since my scanner seems to want to do weird things with the paper now. I don’t think I noticed before because I didn’t use as much of the space (yay, vaguely present backgrounds), so I probably didn’t notice things ending up in the shadowed area. Which makes me sad because I like the versatility of the 80 lb paper.
Anyway, enough technical worse. Out of all the outfits she’s worn, this is still my favourite to both see and draw. I didn’t actually have a pose in mind for her when I started drawing. Just that I wanted her to look giddy. So this was more or less spur of the moment. And a both a pain and fun to detail. I tried throwing in a minimalist background too, which mostly fits, although I am kind of wondering if I should have tried to do more with the sky.
