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.
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.
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.
