EDIT: Re-did some of the image because it started to bug me in some parts, namely the neck and the eyes.
Hey hey! My favorite Pony Tumblr seems to like this piece! She featured it on his/her Tumblr, right here.
If you already aren't following this Tumblr, you should do so, especially if you like Best Pony.
I haven't done a good ol' fashioned purely Pony pic (heh, gotte love them alliterations) in a good while. I felt that the style in which I drew Ponies via digital could use some rebuffing, seeing how bland it was and how nothing really made it stand out too well, especially since I felt my old style mimicked the show's default style waaaaaaaay too much.
That's why I went ahead and experimented with a new style that I've been doodling for quite some time. As a test, I drew best Pony, a.k.a. Octavia
, in this brand new, totally refurbished style. Everything is meant to look more fluid, more detailed, and more crisp than the original (DETAILS! GOSH I LOVE DETAILS.) I think the biggest difference I notice is in their heads and jawlines. I wanted to make them appear more... "cuddly", I guess you can call it, so I made their heads/jaws a bit more rounded.
I really love how this turned out, so in my next FiM project, I'm gonna try and use this cool new style o' mine instead! I can't wait to try it out. Oh yeah, and if anyone would like a render of this without the background, just let me know, and I upload a version sans background. Thank you!
