Hooray for negative space! I actually reduced the amount of it here before uploading.... originally I wanted the central color image to be in the exact center of a white void, with the black and white drawing filling only the lowest right-most quadrant. I decided that would work better on a wall or canvas than a computer screen, however.
More attempts to strip some of that "cool" shellack that's accumulated around Scratch off. I came up with this idea quite some time ago and didn't feel like drawing it until last night. I thought it would be fun to see Tavi as the strong partner and Vinyl as a comparative lightweight. I think it makes her cute, which I don't usually find the character to be.
Before you ask, by the way, Tavi is restringing her cello there in the background. How she does this as an earth pony is as much of a mystery as how she plays the cello in the first place.
I'm pleased with the effect of using only greyscale in that bottom frame.
