Faithful Student by TwilightFlopple Faithful Student by TwilightFlopple
A few nights ago (election night, actually) I was out buying paper for a project I was interested in attempting wherein the white of the paper could imply, using negative space, the white body of a pony (like Rarity... or me!) eventually I became distracted attempting Celestia and Twilight side by side, until I had the idea to integrate Twilight into Celestia's rainbow mane....

I think this one owes something to Saul Bass by way of Mary Blair. I would've liked to attempt this one with stencils and acrylic paints, and after a failure with marker decided to make the attempt with watercolor. The result is satisfactorily sharp, although I would've liked to use my stencil plan to allow the different layers of color to slip slightly out of registration. Perhaps that would've been too Saul Bass, I'm not sure.

Happy Season Three, ponies!

This is a fantastic concept, but Twilight is far too lacking in detail.

It's actually watercolor. The "stars" in her mane are acrylic. :)
