Dashing Butterflies Pony by hollowzero Dashing Butterflies Pony by hollowzero
*ZebraRaine inspired me to do this, she mentioned how the butterflies weren't actually dancing on Dancing Butterflies so I thought something up and it didn't work out but I thought I'd upload it anyway.

..no I'm not on anything, I swear!

BEHOLD THE CRAP BACKGROUND

Edit: I altered said crap background some, ha

Materials: wacom, Photoshop 7, 3 hours of the theme from Link to the Past where you're transformed into a rabbit

I like the pastels you used for the butterflies, rather than brightly colored ones.

Well, I don't know what the "crap background" looked like before, but I really love it now! It looks great! I love the colors, too. It looks very Easter. I like the hair on this one. It's more detailed and all. I think that it would help things just a little bit if you started adding little bits of color into your shading. I know it doesn't seem like it, but if you look at something outside in bright daylight, often the shadows have a blueish or violet cast, and the highlights are slightly yellow. Also, maybe the shading on the pony's body could stand to be a little darker?

Like I said, the background really does look nice. If you want suggestions on that sort of thing, the only thing I think I really have for ya is that as things get further away, the gain more of a hazy, blue-gray cast, and loose contrast. Have you ever looked at woods and hills in the distance? That's what I mean. I think it might help with your depth if you tried that out.

But seriously, this is really pretty. I really like it. :3 But then, I have a thing for butterflies, too.

Aww, cute! <3 I inspired something? That's a first!

I'm busy imagining how big of a pain in the ass it would be to paint a custom pony like that. Could you imagine? LMAO.

Also seems to be better "quality" then some of the other ponies I've seen (but I haven't seen them all).

Wow, now that's a lot of butterflies. She's a pretty pony. Kinda psychedelic. Maybe "Swarming Butterflies" would be a better name? :D
