Dedication… Destiny… Divinity… All this, for you My Little Ponies
What an adorkable princess
I decided to try a newish style for the last prompt. I’ve frequently wanted to draw more epic and elegant anatomy, sorta more realistic horse befitting of alicorns. Every time I tended to revise the proportions to cuter, but this time I think I got a pretty good attempt. Not as realistic as I would have liked, but I suppose it still has my typical style. Of course I draw Twilight once again, I often have trouble with her hairstyle, and her princess hair made it no less easy trying to balance the composition–and my goodness that shading….
Aaaahhh done! I did it! ALL 30 prompts completed with no lateness (officially). Geez what challenge just as I remember like the past six or so ATG events I’ve completed. I’m surprised I managed, as a week before the start of the event I questioned whether I would even have time; I hadn’t done ATG the past two years. My artist side is going to miss the daily strife to draw, but my pragmatic side knows I need to regain sleep. Maybe I’ll consider ATG again next year, but I definitely want to keep the art going. I’ve got some personal projects lines up again, but now I have lots of sketches I can color (though maybe after a month I’d hate them and would want to redraw)
Thank y’all for following along, now you won’t be spammed daily by my mediocre art. The comments were VERY motivating and I hope I was able to illustrate some interesting ideas.
