So I saw this kind of thing everywhere on my dashboard, and I bumped into this one the other day (I mean the base, Rarity,Dash, Pinkie).
I’m not sure I get the point of the pony thing because it’s supposed to mash up things that are similar no? Or it doesn’t matter? Anyhow I had too many points to go for.
1: mash up and make the best out of it, so everybody can tell who were the 2 (or 3) ponies I mixed together
2: color balance, there’s none, I tried to help on the colors, but at the end even if they looked fine you couldn’t really tell what I was aiming for. Like when I went for the color between pink and light blue to get Rarity. It looked nicer and seemed more legit, but took the mixed feeling away.
3: stay canon. I didn’t want to make 2 of them alicorns, but I was thinking ‘what would a guy who doesn’t know the show do with this’. well, probably mixing the two. bam. alicorn.
4: cutie marks - I don’t think they turned out that good, but they kinda tell what’s up in my opinion
5: hairstyles - I think this was the hardest part, just look at them, none of them has even SIMILAR mane styles.
6: personality - again, an outsider might not know this, but I tried to give back an expression for all of them, mixing the 2 character’s attributes together and this is what I came up with.
these are the things I wanted to stick with while mixing them together:
Rarity’s horn (again, making them alicorn, but that’s what an outsider would do). Rarity’s able to cast spells, use magic is not her strongest attribute, so I thought just making the mixes pegasi, except the pinkie/rarity one. And of course her swirly mane.
Dash’s mane color, obviously her biggest giveaway, that’s the character’s strong point, design-wise, without colors she could be many of the background ponies.
Pinkie’s puffy mane. again, I think that’s what gives her away, mixing the manes was really fun.
I played with the siluettes, and it was amazing, you can tell who the mixes were. I spend hours with these, I made more than 20 designs for it, many color changes and mane styles, expressions etc.
Might do the other 3 later, maybe princesses who know?this is really fun.
Rarpie Dash is original character donut steel (not)
So I sketched it up long ago, and I had some time to finish it, since many of you asked. here the choices were… less creative, and less extreme, so they don’t pop up that good, I think they are weaker than the other one, but I had to finish after all. The color choices were harder though, none of them looked good, all of them look weird, these colors don’t look that good together in my eyes :)
I refused to use some obvious color choices, because they looked horrible :D
I hope you still like it :)
“Beach play with Beach ball. Too literal.”
For those who live in a cave, Beach ball is the OC of Atryl. I wanted to do a proper fanart and get this (lame) joke out of my head.
Bigger version on my deviant art.
AWESOME! :D Poor Beach Ball :’(
Wizard’s Quill - for the 30min Challenge. we had less time again, and the topic was Twilight, right after I finished the other Twilight :D So yea, here it is.
Tax Forms - for the 30min Challenge. the 30 min challenge was ‘pony pets’
Since I’m not fan of THAT kinda thing I did this instead :P
The Rite of Askh-Ente -
Today’s challenge is…
“Oh sweet Celestia we killed Twilight!”
Let that sink in for a second.
You know for a minute at least some of those poniies thought they just murdered their good friend Twilight. That’s a black scorch mark. It doesn’t speak of something nice normally and I think you can also see what I mean in their faces.
So what you’re to draw is what happened in that window between Twilight’s ‘death’ and return. Or you could go more ‘what if that actually happened’ if you would like. Whichever inspires you darlings~
So… I thought, what if they did the askh-ente rite (summon death, and ask things if needed) from Terry pratchett’s Discworld?
This was happened in Colour of Magic, when the wizards summoned Death, and he was at a masquerade party. At the end of the discussion:
Galder: I said I hope it is a good party.
AT THE MOMENT IT IS. I THINK IT MIGHT GO DOWNHILL VERY QUICKLY AT MIDNIGHT. Galder: Why?
THAT’S WHEN THEY THINK I’LL BE TAKING MY MASK OFF.
Valentine Twilight - for the 30min CHallenge. Valentine’s Day card. i wanted to do all of them for the challenge, but my laptop decided to shut down in the middle of the challenge and I somehow forgot to save… So.. Well, I’ll try to finish the rest anyway :)
