ALTERNATIVE RED-EYED VERSION: [link]
Featured in Equestria Daily's Drawfriend #667, Entry #26!
Well, this was initially supposed to be a sketch, then a speedpaint, then my Hearth's Warming image, but after changing some things, I decided to leave it for later since it didn't have the wintery feel I was looking for. (and I made that Derpy pic instead)
In any case, this was a fun experiment. I was trying to figure out some relatively decent looking 1/2 perspective, as well as trying out some new things with the hair and lineless drawing. The end result looks kind of lazy to me (especially if you look at it up close) but I'm very happy with the outcome considering my lack of experience doing this and low amount of time I put into it.
Another thing I did differently was that I actually recorded me drawing this on my Livestream channel. Here's the link to part 1
and you can find parts 2 and 3 below the video.
If people are really interested in this I could turn it into a time lapse video or something. Also, there's about 1,5 hours of tweaking small stuff and changing other stuff that I didn't record.
And the usual thanks to everyone who attended my livestream and gave me tips on improving this. You all rock and I couldn't have done this without you!
