So this is number three for the folio

Season two is finished and it went out with quite a bang. It was a fantastic season and I applaud anyone and everyone who worked on the show. What does this mean for pony art from me? Well it probably means I'll be doing less of it, my sketchbooks show this already. However these adorable equines have earned a permanent place in geek heart and art shall pop out every so often(hell I've got a bit of a backlog of "stuff that's going to be completed digitally").

I'm going to be busy doing a few other pieces, just generally improving my skill across the board so expect many random things from different place in my gallery soon.

Now for the piece itself.

I'm just going to go out and say that Lyra is my favourite background pony. Her design and colour scheme is awesome. her new voice is great, the fact that her fan name became canon is brilliant. Everything! The fanon just adds to it. Her belief in humans, the desire for hands etc.

Now I'm also going to admit that I'm not one for shipping, I find most of them don't gel. I'm just not a fan of the non-canon relationships.

The exception is Lyra and Bonbon

This is just an expression of it. the two of them strolling(trotting?) through the hills around ponyville on a rainy day while sharing an umbrella.

I had LOADS of fun with this pic. I'm starting to get to grips with PS5 and it's blending, however I still prefer SAI for it's linework. Originally I was going to use a Ponyville street for the background, but it felt too cramped so I opted for a "wilderness" setting. In all honest it works much better.


Done in Photoship CS5.1, Paint Tool SAI from a traditional sketch.

To quote the great Freddie Mercury:

"It’s a kind of magic
It’s a kind of magic
A kind of magic
One dream one soul, one prize
One goal, one golden glance of what should be
It’s a kind of magic"

Indeed, I honestly like capturing moments like this. Too much sad stuff in the world, any amount of D'aaaaw helps!

Heh thanks, I'm particularly fond of doing pics that make people feel all warm and fuzzy.
