Blue Pony in Blue Sky

Luna flying through the sky, night spreading from her tail

I hope you like blue! :-P This picture started out as an experiment on choosing colors for a bigger painting based on this sketch, but I think it stands quite well on it’s own. :-) The planned picture is still going to happen … sometime. ;)

Donut Cannon

“Awww, but I already charged the party cannon!” *pouts*

Sniffing Flowers

Fluttershy sniffing some African violets

When visiting my grandparents this afternoon, I noticed the African violets on the window sill might look good in watercolor. I’d been thinking about drawing Fluttershy with some giant flowers, so… your choice if those are giant violets or tiny Fluttershy. :-P

After School

Miss Cheerilee is a wonderful teacher, but I’m sure she’s tired after school sometimes. ;-)

Beautiful Luna

Princess Luna with a flower in her hair, pastel colors in the background

Today after work I went to the store where I bought my watercolor pencils yesterday again to get a few more colors and a pad of very small watercolor papers. Each sheet is just 8 by 10.5 cm (3.2 by 4.1 inches), just right for fairly quick and simple pictures. Now you know the original size of the picture above. ;-) I really love working with watercolor pencils, and I’m excited to see where practice will take me. :D

Cupcake on Your Head

It’s just a rough sketch I did on the train home from work, but I just couldn’t not draw the image that got into my head after reading this tweet: :D

A Twilight Experiment

Twilight Sparkle with flowing mane and tail (watercolor)

This is my first attempt at using watercolor pencils, hence the title, and although it’s not perfect I’m pleased with the result. :-) I’ve been looking for an alternative to crayons for colored pictures, and today I finally decided to try watercolor pencils. They seem similar enough to crayons, and I love the look of Foxxy’s watercolor pictures, for example “Royal Bathing Chambers“. Obviously I still need practice with the new technique, but I already like how it lets me use multiple layers of color. I also might need to change the white balance on my scanner, because the original looks less reddish. :-/

In other news, I’m pleased to announce that “Under A Gentle Moon” has been accepted for the art gallery at this year’s Galacon! :D If you’ll be there, too, you’re welcome to say hi!
