Twilight Sparkle by ShadowPhoenixRisen Twilight Sparkle by ShadowPhoenixRisen
So, :iconpencilpusher9h-9b: is an absolutely wonderful person, and is sending me a Fluttershy blind bag toy, since I've been having trouble finding blind bags here where I live. Twilight Sparkle is her favourite pony, so I drew this for her. Hope you like it, Lamae! :iconfluttershysqueeplz:

Drawn in GIMP.

Also, check out my other MLP: FiM art!

EDIT: My Twilight Sparkle was featured on Equestria Daily! :squee: [link] # 14

I layed down the base colour on one layer, then on another layer I used a few different sized brushes with the opacity turned down to draw in the highlights, shadows, and several strands of hair in lighter and darker shades of the base colour :)

Wow! Another question or two: how do you do curves without a vector tool or whatever they're called, and what brush do you use? If you look at the ones I did on gimp, I had an outline, and I traced most of them, with the exception of a terrible one i attempted freehand. And that's with a touchscreen computer... [](/facehoof) if that worked I'm going to scream for joy.

The curves were just done freehand using my Wacom Intuos 3 drawing tablet. I just used the regular round brushes that come with GIMP :)

Friesland used to be it's own country, but got split up. My mom's family is from the part that's now in the Netherlands :)

I layed down the base colour on one layer, then on another layer I used a few different sized brushes with the opacity turned down to about 70% to draw in several strands of hair in lighter and darker shades of the base colour :)

OH MY GOODNESS HER MANE. Her eyes are also ridiculously amazing. AND THE SHADING.

Probably because your art is ridiculously amazing too.

Makes enough sense. How much smaller did you make the area for the base color than the area for the strands layer, assuming to keep it from showing through?

:iconshadowphoenixrisen:
ShadowPhoenixRisen Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Not much smaller at all, really. Just barely small enough so that it didn't show through ^^;
