Quick draw requests from last night multi stream. I needed to practice faces with a bit more emotion than I’ve been doing. It was fun, and did it in Sketchbook, which made this so much easier than Photoshop.
Over the past few months my style(s) have become stale to the point where I’m no-longer happy with them and am less excited to update my blogs. While I do experiment and try new things on my modblog, my ask blogs are left with the same style they’ve had for a very long time. Furthermore, all three blogs have very different styles despite the fact they’re all drawn by one artist.
To counteract this, I’ve decided upon a universal style for all of my blogs which encompass a few of the things I’ve learned from experimenting. This new look is designed to look more visually appealing, while still being simple enough to draw many panels withing a given time-frame.
Features like extra detail on the hair and cell-shading make the ponies more visually striking, but require minimal effort to do.
I also redesigned a few things like Sweetie’s Dual Canons (now a single Railgun), Octavia’s Pipbuck (now a more rounded design to avoid perspective errors), Future Sweetie Bot’s legs (I blame Balooga for this!) and Sweetie Bot’s overall design(now slightly more robotic-looking).
Hopefully you guys will like the changes and look forward for what’s to come!
