draw fluttershy listening to music with headphones. Make her seem really into it

Informal Skype request. May 21, 2014.
I wasn’t in any request drive. It was just a spur of the moment.

This one is for you, Ninjaham (His Ponilove blog was taken down 4 days ago due to an unspecified takedown by Tumblr). Pull through, bud.

30 minute challenge entries for January 26, 2014 (plus May 5, 2014 trace) and May 4, 2014. I felt I can finally post the January one because I have better pieces to complement it (the original one looks terrible).

What irks me is how identical these turned out to be, even when there was plenty of wiggle room to draw other characters and poses. Being short of time does that to you. These sketches are still vast improvements from something similar I came up with last September.

I need the practice.

I want to see Glimmer wearing the same striped underwear that is seen in this pic

/mlp/ satyr thread art, April 30-May 1, 2014.

Should have done a little more to make her more like the Glimmer offspring, but oh well.

EDIT: Some minor tweaks, and adding the initial sketch. The sketch actually looks a lot more proportionate. And yes, I acknowledge the ridiculously protruding bangs; it’s stylization that usually goes overboard. The face and head shape are also longstanding problems; I’m not getting enough practice with human heads.

This Tumblr is now a year old. At least it’s what Tumblr is telling me.
And yet I don’t feel jubilant about it. Feels like I’m huddling towards the tail end of things. If only I started this gig 3 years earlier, it could have been much more fun; one can dream.
Back to work.
