Sisters’ Time

Rarity sitting on the floor, Sweetie Belle on her back, leaning against Rarity's neck

Just Rarity and Sweetie Belle spending some time together. The pose is inspired by yesterday’s Heavenly Nostrils comic, which is wonderfully sweet and highly recommended.

Celestia Watercolor

Watercolor of Princess Celestia

I haven’t been drawing since last Sunday, which feels like far too long, so here’s a little watercolor of Princess Celestia.

Pegasi at Sunset

Four pegasi flying through a sky colored by sunset

When I saw Lupinia‘s wonderful photo “Sunset Flight“, I pretty much immediately though “Hey, I should do a version of this with pegasi!” No surprise after practicing wings for so long. :D Drawing the pegasi as silhouettes only felt a bit weird, but I like the result. :)

If you’re interested, I’ve posted sketches for this picture yesterday.

Wing Study: Far Away

4 small sketches of flying pegasi

I’m thinking about creating a watercolor inspired by this wonderful photo, and sketched some poses. Seems doable. :-)

Wing Study: Front View

Frontal view of a pegasus in flight

Drawing ponies from the front seems much harder than from the side, but I’m mostly happy with this one. The partially hidden wing seems a little off, though. Maybe I should try some wire frame drawings…

Wing Study: Rising

Pegasus flying upwards, wings in a downward motion

This is kind of the counterpart of Monday’s Rushing Down sketch. ;-) I have to say that I’m getting more and more confident about drawing wings. :-)

Flight Study: Flight Motion

Two sketches of the same pegasus in flight, with different wing positions

While looking for reference pictures of birds’ flight motion, I came across some studies by Etienne Jules Marey, in particular his “Motion study of gull’s flight” (second to last picture in the article). For these sketches, I’ve tried to transfer two of the mid-flight poses to my pegasus model. By the way, she should really should get a name and cutie mark some time. :D
