Twilight Sparkle by Huussii Twilight Sparkle by Huussii
Welp, stuff of ~LavosVsBahamut inspired me to finally go and buy a set of color pencils to try out.

First time using color pencils since childhood and.. I gotta say this is hell of a lot of easier than standard graphite works. Pen pressure you give is not as crucial as it is with graphite stuff and it's easier to cover up mistakes.

It's a bit rough all around but I don't want to give too much time for one work now as I just want to practise a bit.

I'm open for suggestions and critique on technique. Especially on color blending.

Come on, Twilight, I'll be your guy!

First we jump, and now we fly!

Like fireworks we will ignite!

Through this Equestrian night!

Beautiful work ^^

For color blending, I'd suggest using cotton for big parts and cotton swabs for little details. But I can see you've already done a very good job on this drawing. :)

If there's one thing I'd like to mention is that she has no nostril! Other than that it really looks good to me! Maybe the chest blending could use a bit more work, but otherwise it's fine. ^^

If I have to critique on anything, it's the fading of Twilight as she nears non-existence as you near the edge of the page, where you can see where the pencil stopped/started (mainly the section by her mane on her body, outside of the shadow). But that isn't the central focus of the work or important for this piece. However, it IS something to work on if you end up using colored pencils and need to draw/color something that is either very light or uses very little color.

Skillfully done. Much better than what I can do with colored pencils. I think your technique's fine.

Twilight on yksi parhaista poneista. Hän on sopiva tyttöystävä hahmolleni Boldcutielle.

Toiset parhaat ovat Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dach ja Celestia
