The other day I had to fix this figure and I remember that I had these pictures of it waiting to be posted here.
This is something I made as a present to my dad for the Father’s Day two years ago.
I choose it for him because of the beautiful colours (it really shines in a very elegant way) and because it was the more complex design I had tried so far and my dad deserved the effort; he liked it a lot.
This pony belongs to Virginia. Since she can't decide on a name for it I am calling her Nocturne Melody.
Originally, this pony was derivate from the Summer Wing and Flutter Wing ponies (years 4 and 6) but it evolved differently, even incorporating some Sparkle Ponies’ (year 7) features and a glittering gem like the Brush&Grow ones (year 7). As a whole it makes a quite eclectic pony, probably the one most influenced by the newest toys of this set of designs (tiny body, face shape, symbol density, symbol in the ankle and the eye, etc.).
It was a lot of fun to overdo all the details.
Many people post sketches of their work, doodles they do during class or similar things.
I m extremely prolific in those terms, but I hardly ever feel comfortable showing that kind of work around. I am going to make a little effort…
I am not a technified person. I do pretty good with technology and I have a thing for finding out how things work but I don’t like the thought of technical devices mediating my experiences. I’m more the face to face, touch, kind of person. That’s why, many times, instead of sending SMSs I draw my message on a piece of paper or a post it, I take a picture of it with my cell phone and I send it instead.
I thought you might enjoy two of my most recent drawings:
I drew this one to cheer up someone who I knew was having a hard time at that moment (I photoshoped out the text). It is me sending a big big hug.
A few days ago, Virginia had a dream involving a Winged Monkey. It wasn’t a nice dream and, as I take kind of personally anything related to the Wicked Witch of the West (having played her while I was at school), I thought I could give the whole thing a nice turn. I might make a vector out of it.
Long time I didn’t update so I thought I should give you some old ponies here for your enjoyment since I know many of my watchers like them.
Well they are not that old, but are from before I owned a tablet and just before my old scanner died and it sounds old now.
For these pictures I did the lineart on paper and all the colouring with the mouse, which I use with my right hand even when I am lefty; so don’t be too harsh with me here.
These ones are part of the set of designs I did on some of my on-line friends: they are supposed to portray how my friends would be if they were ponies
* Jong and Young detail:
These little ones are, Jong and Young, are the twin babies of my friend.
There were drawn after the Newborn and Newborn Twins ponies (years 5-7) and the Drink&Wet baby ponies (check the diaper!).
* Unnamed pony (sadly the owner never filled the pony profile):
This cute one was designed as a manager one of those cute pony boutiques (the ones from back then) and, knowing the portrayed, it’s more than likely that it would be a costume boutique. That’s why she has a wizard hat. The finished piece has a lot of costume accessories at her hoofs that I didn’t include here.
This pony was designed after the earthy ponies of the year 3 (cute as the year’s 1 and 2 but growing more stylized); simple body and eyes, smooth design. A classic. I went “wild about the symbol though, making it completely different from those generations’ cannon ones.
* This pony was named Kairu and it belongs to my friend Kyle:
For him I imagined a pony that, even when he would be as nice and caring as a pony should be, would hold a typical rebel aesthetique. And Kyle filled a profile for a very badass pony.
Designed after the Big Bother Ponies (years 5 and 6); quite a simple design too, but with heads slightly bigger than the regular ponies to the date, hairy hoof and a few accessories mostly related to their jobs.
I have new ponies drawn, I will try to update some of them soon, but I really want to update something else before.
