lol yea, I guess it looks better here, but when I uploaded it earlier it looked lumpier (to me) c:

Yup, that was my intent, but then I was like "something looks a little off." I realized that I shouldn't make one element furry, without making the whole picture furry (and wasn't going to mess with the clouds). So it's updated now c: I'm still adding that pony in....working on it now actually. :p

EDIT:
I tried to be faithful to the scene, but I need a lot more practice drawing bent limbs. So this is what I got! I don't love her hair in this one :x
I see a minor quirk in this that I'm going to correct and update sometime tomorrow. Fixed it sort of.

Part 1 of a larger picture that I want to draw. I'm not completely happy with it to be honest. I need to practice a lot more (clothes, features, shading, etc.). So hopefully I am able to improve upon this particular piece before I attempt to draw the whole thing.

Fiddling around with new brushes and layers, here are a few simple doodles.

I'm sure you just need a little practice Tenshi. c:

Here are some more quick sketches (the fingers are deformed because of how fast I did this. If I try to re-do this one again, I'll take my time :c). You recognize the reference Tenshi? c:

The reason that there are two is due to the earlier photos I uploaded having a background. Apparently if I upload directly from iPad the Background pops up even if I saved without one. So here are two!

Same, every time it comes to mind I have to go look to see if there's any news on it.
I haven't watched the movie, but I've only heard bad things of it.

I've watched it, and it was an....awkward watch to say the least. Amazing how the whole "extra voice/being in my head" thing didn't translate as well on screen as it did in the book. At least the souls were beautiful. I did those sketches from memory and it is still nothing in comparison to the original. You should totally go look at it (the souls).

Seems like it'd be hard trying to translate 2 consciousness within one actor. It'd look like a monologue when it's supposed to be a dialogue. I don't remember seeing a voice for Wanda in the cast, so I assume they had the actress play both. Which sounds like a terrible decision imo.

I just looked up a picture. It's fuzzy :3

*Blows dust off thread*
Been a while since I painted anything. No particular reason as to why I drew this, was just the first thing I saw xD
I feel pretty proud of how this came out, although I do admit that it could be better. Practice, here I come!

Image

Felt proud of how the back came out too (even if the lines are a bit crooked xD) So I'm putting this here as well.

Image

EDIT: The more I look at this one the more I like it. So here's one with more shine on the knob

Up until I saw the shine and the word "knob," I just thought it was a really cute piece of butter scotch candy in a golden wrapper. xD

I do like how it looks, though, especially with the shine on the last image. I think you might want to add a little more white in the highlights? Just a little bit, to make it pop out a little bit more.

now I want some butterscotch candy xD

Ok I'll highlight it a bit more c:
It's one of the things (along with shading) that I'm still working on. If I don't post it in a new post, I'll just add it up there with the rest.

Thank you c:

@Mad-Mutt Thanks c:

Still trying to catch up on MLP, but after seeing a certain scene (from a certain episode), I absolutely HAD to draw/paint it. After a few twists and turns (and delays from watching more episodes), this is the end result! I'm probably going to come back and re-draw this sometime in the distant future.
