WIP: [link]

Approx time: 2 hours

Really enjoying using this style, but it is quite... messy to be honest (and I might like to change that again)

This piece however, not sure about how it turned out.... The pose and angle might have been a bit too hard.
Was also trying out a different approaches to things like shadow and colour especially.
In short... I guess I kinda messed up this one :|

PS: I might have to open up these kinds of pieces for commissions.

Really nice drawing and she looks really peaceful like that. God she's cute!

Liking seeing this style from you. Certainly interesting.

Wouldn't call it messy, I think it looks quite detailed if you look at it in an overall perspective rather the focusing on specific parts.
Like the expression the most definitely. And the pose. Bit peculiar, but very nice nonetheless.

This is very good :) and you did very well at drawing it from the angle ^^
I also like the way you roughly coloured and shaded this ^^
Great job~ :heart:

Got to agree with :iconsleeptofade: , it's a very interesting style. It's quite highly detailed in its 'messiness'. Not every part of the drawing has to be in sharp focus, after all. That blanket, to me, appears very detailed indeed. So does her face and her mane and the shadows her body casts. And I love that warm expression, makes the picture 'light' despite the predominantly dark colours. Well done!

Thank you, it's now certainly a style I want to continue exploring and playing around with.

I guess you're right, there's a certain kind of "detail" in my so called mess.
Something that get mentioned on one of my other works was "Impressionistic" Which could apply here.
Having enough detail to give the impression of what the different parts are.

Really nice to hear how the atmosphere came out as well

Messed up? I rather consider to use it as the header for our Art post today, if you don't mind.
It's a wonderful drawing and generally an interesting style. Some parts are "messy" as you said while others seem more detailed. For example, her wing and her face, respectively.
The shading/lighting within these overall dark pictures you recently made conveys a special atmosphere. It's kind of gloomy, but Fluttershy's smile here leaves a peaceful impression at last.

Thank you for the kind words and sure of course you may use it :D I'd be honoured

I think I've got to realise that it's already working without the "details" which I tend to get fixated on.
Maybe better to have less in this style, less details might have certain parts stand out more. Which can go the same for value and colour.

I find the style great fun to work with and I just have to continue enjoying it. It's great to hear the end result is enjoyed by others as well :)
