Crashing the Party [artwork]


MLPFIM -- Crashing the Party by ~the-gneech on deviantART

It's Princess Luna's birthday party, but Rainbow and Twilight are running late! Will they get there in time? Let's just say that when Rainbow crashes a party, she really crashes a party.

Inspired by a session of the Twitterponies ( http://twitterponies.tumblr.com/ ).

Starting to get the hang of drawin' ponies, finally. :) Luna in particular came out pretty well, I think!

That came out really well! I love Luna's fluttering mane!

I need to finish that Dragonshy picture I'm in the middle of....

(Also! I picked up one of those steampunk Rainbow Dash t-shirts! It hasn't arrived yet, but it should soon.)

Thanks! :D It was fun to do, and the Twitterponies all seemed to get a kick out of it. :)

I saw that! About how long did this take you to draw and (especially) color?

I started it around 8:00 p.m. and finished at about 1:30 a.m., so that's 5 1/2 hrs? The penciling took the longest of all the single steps, as I was trying to make it as tight as possible.

I used screenshots from "Best Night Ever" as color pickers for the background; the base coloring probably took about 45-60 min. (One nice labor-saver about the MLPFIM style, it doesn't use a lot of shading!) The most time-consuming part was going back and coloring the outlines, as it was all bit art and not actually done in Flash. ("Select Color Range" to erase the white, "Preserve Transparency" to only paint over the inked parts.) That probably took about 1 1/2 - 2 hrs, but I was also going kinda slow towards the end 'cause I was getting tired.

It does look good, the background especially makes it look like a still from the show. :)
