Finally, here’s the comic for which I was drawing all the Pinkie sketches. A while ago I talked about fork bombs (a type of denial of service attack) with a friend, and my mind went off on a tangent, just like Pinkie here.
A little sketch I did on the train today, and it’s finally the kind of pose I was looking for. This one’s based on the second sketch in the previous post.
I really hope anypony who has seen the first episodes of season 4 that where released yesterday will know from which scene I took this face. The sketch below (yes, I’m still working on Pinkie Pie) is based on a pose from the same episode, but probably less obviously.
I also want to take this opportunity to remind you of my spoiler policy: This blog will not have spoilers on the day a new episode airs. However, after that everything is fair game. Just so you know…
I’m still trying to figure out how to properly draw a pony as seen from behind. I drew the Pinkie on the left first for reference, and then tried to rotate her as necessary for the picture I have in mind. I think this is going into the right direction, but the foreleg, nose and eye still seem weird to me.
Link of the day: “A mare never forgives“, some silly fun with Shining Armor and Princess Cadance.
Some sketches exploring an idea I want to draw later. It’s going to be some programmers’ humor! The lower right sketch of Pinkie is OK I think, but it was rather difficult to make. I need to find a proper way to draw ponies as seen from behind. Especially the hardly visible face is tricky.
Link of the Day: “A Few Days Later“. I think the idea is funny, especially the shocked faces (I assume they’re because the other five are realizing the connection between their adventure and a certain series…).
Yesterday I watched some episodes of Teen Titans Go!, and since Tara Strong voices Raven I got the idea of drawing Twilight as Raven, although she is a quite different character. I love her deadpan reactions.
A drawing for a friend who’s pony likeness I’ve drawn before. This one started out as a sketch which I liked so much that I decided to finish it as a kind of sketchy pencil drawing instead of starting over to create a “finished” version. Once again I’ve used a photo of a real pony by Lupinia to help with the poses.
This is why I drew the Friendship Express engine a while ago. Cheerilee is bringing a new exchange student to Ponyville. The young giraffe still needs a name, though…
I know the perspective is somewhat off, but so it is in the show.
“Well, I think you might need a few more scarves…”
Scootaloo is right, and it really is difficult to find fitting clothes when your build is far from average. The inspiration to draw a scarf came from today’s Heavenly Nostrils comic, where Marigold is wearing one.
I’m thinking about making this young giraffe a recurring character, although I don’t have a name for her yet. Well, literally speaking she has recurred already, but you know what I mean.
