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! 😀 If you’ll be there, too, you’re welcome to say hi!
