Sorry for the awful quality, but I had to draw this. Sandy’s gonna hit around where I live (and hopefully she’ll stay a tropical storm in my area), and so I had to create an image to go with it. So, if I randomly disappear, that means my power’s out!
I took such a long break after Bronycon that I’m having a really hard time getting back into drawing pretty much anything. Come as Aorta Rose, my vampire pony, questions so I can try and get back into stuff!
Lol, I meant to work on the Luna/Okami print, but instead I did this! Today was stressful, and drawing Aorta always makes me feel better. I wanna stay up and draw all night now, buuut I super need to go to bed. I’m very happy with the word bubles and lettering though! It came out great! My linework is still really rusty though, I need to super practice again to get back to where I was.
Aorta Rose is pretty much just a small ball of rage that looks for excuses to explode. However, it takes A LOT to make her turn into her Nightmare form, mostly because it’s really unstable and uses up a metric ton of magic. It’s useful for scaring the crap out of people, and taking out troublesome prey though.
EDIT: Tumblr super f’s up the quality, click on it to view better.
This has been my general attitude all day. Along with something else, but I’m not gonna draw it since my arm’s starting to get pretty angry. It’s pretty neat seeing my thought processes right in front of me. Aorta’s representing my gut reaction of kicking things while Abbey’s the voice of reason and self-control.
“Ooh, this tea party was a great idea, Chryssy! Thanks for having me!”
“You’re welcome Absinthe! Aorta, would you like some tea?”
“This isn’t even REAL tea. WHY am I here?”
I’ve had this idea for a bit, and so today, I took the time to do it! Their expressions and poses were fun, especially Aorta Rose’s. Designing the tea set was pretty fun too, I kind of like drawing tea cups.
Anyway, from left to right: Abbey Absinthe, Aorta Rose, and Filly Queen Chrysalis.
Originally, this was supposed to be simple; then I decided to try some new effects. I got kind of carried away, but it looks pretty neat. I have yet to figure out how that outline around her head happened. I’ll need to experiment some more.
As far as I can tell, I am now all caught up on Inktober days! I burned the midnight oil last night to get these done. Very reminiscent of my college days when I would stay up to ungoldy hours working on art before dragging myself to bed. It was both refreshing to be so focused but also reminded me WHY I’m trying to stop staying up so late.
Enjoy all these evil, dark colored ponies! Pretty fitting for Halloween this week, right?
(Despite how grumpy Aorta looks, really, thank you so much! You’re all really awesome for following this story even though it’s barely begun. I’m still working on the scripts so give me some time. I’m hoping to have the second page up by next week though. Here’s hoping!)
