Caught in a Downpour by muffinshire Caught in a Downpour by muffinshire
Drawn for ILR's 10th drawing challenge thread on the "UK of Equestria" forums. This was the first piece made using my new (well, second-hand) graphics tablet, so I took the opportunity to experiment further with natural media brushes in Photoshop.

Goes so so well with this. I really like these two's friendship. Or whatever people want them to be they are still adorable either way.

I remember this being the cover for one of the first Lyrabon fanfics I read ... and it's still great after all these months.

I love how, despite the wet manes, these two are very much themselves. In fact, they might look more uniquely themselves for just that reason! The setting, the emotion, everything is perfect. I love this drawing. :D

This one's great. The characters aren't saying anything yet you can almost determine what is going on from just looking at their faces. The style looks very vivid and colourful.
If anything; the ground looks a little slippery and shiny, like a wet mirror. But that may be scrutinizing from my part.

Awww. This is great! I wish I could do backgrounds/ settings as well as you do.

Great work with the reflective surface of the wet ground and the portrayal of rain hitting surfaces.

That's a beautiful picture in every regard - mood, atmosphere, background, linework, color, everything's great.

I love how the raindrops are splashing on the sidewalk and the canopy etc., too; it makes it all seem so much more realistic and, well, wet. :)

I love how they're both laughing, too. And why not? When you're already soaked, you can't get any wetter, so you might as well enjoy the rain. :)

This is both awesome and adorable, but from the moment I saw it, I couldn't help but think... That's Bon bon's shop, why can't they just go inside?

Which isn't to say it isn't good, this is now one of my favourite pieces of Lyrabon art...

wet maned bon-bon looks cute :D but very nice picture overall

hopefully one season they'll give bon-bon her own shop in ponyville, that would be really cool :)

Amazing work! :)

Could I use the visuals of Bon Bon's shop in my LyraBon comic, please? (referencing you of course.) I could never come up with a better one myself. ;)

Certainly. It draws heavily on the existing style of the buildings in Ponyville anyway, so I'm not going to be precious about the design.
