Featured on Equestria Daily's Drawfriend #625, Entry #27! "Dear Princess Celestia, today I learned that you should always double check image sizes when making a drawing so that you don't get frustrated by the low quality halfway through.
So, just TWO WEEKS LATE, I finished this gift for
's birthday and also for Nightmare Night! Hope it was worth the wait!
It was supposed to be a simple little illustration and..it..kind of got out of hand...I just began experimenting with things and adding MORE things and in the end, it actually turned out much better than I thought it would considering I never did a proper(although this could hardly be considered proper) background or tried lineless before. I'd like to thank
especially for their help with the anatomy and suggestions as well as *Alorpax
and everyone else I probably forgot for attending my streams and giving me their honest opinions! You guys all rock!One more thing, this is probably the last gift art I do for someone's birthday for a while, for several reasons. Firstly, I'm extremely slow (TWO WEEKS LATE, AY?), secondly, I keep getting tied down in them and never making much progress on my own stuff and third, I can't just make a half-assed picture for someone, I usually do my best which leads to point one and two happening that much more, so yeah...I wish I could do fan art for all my friends' birthdays but at this rate it's implausible, sorry. :<
OH AND I NEARLY FORGOT! I hid Derpy in this picture. I heard she sort of looks like Pinkie. Oh well, in any case, if you find her, you get NOTHING! Or maybe you get a kick out of finding hidden ponies in drawings.
I'd appreciate if you asked for permission from
if you want to draw Torch Light or use the design for anything.
