A sneak peek of another project I’m working on for Bronycon. This one I hope to compile in a book of some sort to make it seem photo-album like. The basic idea behind it is: The Mane 6 and Spike go on a road-trip and take pictures of their adventure on the way. I’ve always wanted to do something like this, and I think my skill as an artist has finally reached a point where I can at least attempt it. The series of images will all be speedpaints and roughly done, and “framed” like a Polaroid picture would be. I’m so excited to share this one with you guys, it’s gonna be fun! ^.^
As for the images, they are in order (and yes I’ll draw clothes on them; these are just base drawings):
1. Twilight, Rainbow, Pinkie, and Spike all crash on the couch of their hotel room after a busy day out.
2. Rarity and Twi are both caught in a surprise pic while eating breakfast. Rarity’s showing off just how photogenic she is, even so early in the morning.
3. Rainbow, Applejack, and Pinkie all take a selfie during a gas stop.
4. Applejack carries an exhausted and drunk Fluttershy back to the hotel after a night of drinking. Poor thing’s a lightweight but at least she had some fun.
Officially done. Framed and side by side with the print @vermillionprose got me from Andy Price @bronycon. This is meant to be a re-draw of this print and it’s a gift for Vermillion when I go to see him next week. C:
I’m gonna be at Bronycon in Baltimore this weekend! So I’ve been making a bunch of MLP prints and buttons to sell, haha. I’ve never been to a con like this, so wish me luck. I’ll have all these and more at the con, please come visit me and @ask-human-in-ponyville at table F21. c:
“Silly Gummy. You can’t swim in the cookie dough; the bowl’s too small!”
Another scan I saved on sta.sh before I sent my computer for repair work. It’s another piece meant for both prints and for the original to be sold at Bronycon! :3 This time, it’s good ol’ Pinkie Pie and Gummy!
For this one the idea was basically going for something simplistic all around, with the exception of perhaps Pinkie’s hair ‘cause I fuckin’ love curly hair. ;_; But anyway, the idea was basically Pinkie doin’ some baking at Sugarcube Corner and goes off to get something for the mix. As usual, Gummy’s helping her, but when she turns back around she finds the gator in the bowl of cookie mix. It’s no wonder where Gummy gets his goofy side from. x3 I had Pinkie’s hair in a ponytail because I thought she’d actually pull it back when she was doin’ some baking. That, and a ponytail actually looks pretty cute on her. C:
I love all of the Mane 6’s color palettes; they’re ridiculously fun to work with. One of the things I REALLY like about Pinkie’s colors is how simplistic they are; it’s mostly varying shades of pink up until her eyes. The contrast between the pink and those light baby blues is great; Pinkie has beautiful eyes, man. ;_;
This was a lot of fun to paint! Like the previous ones, this one was done with watercolors. It took me about 4 hours; the painting itself wasn’t long, but what took up the remaining hours was the BG and Pinkie’s hair. o3o
But anyway, feel more than free to ask any questions if you have any! 8D
