High Hopes Pony by hollowzero High Hopes Pony by hollowzero
IF THE DEVIL DOESN'T LIKE IT, HE CAN SIT ON A TACK

I was given colors and some other minor details, and I came up with this. I wanted her to have somewhat of a "cloudy" look to her body, almost like she could disappear into the clouds. Hence the blue points.

The symbol is an angel, you can't really see it though.. If I draw her again maybe I should move the wings up higher.

Materials: Photoshop 6, optical mouse

really neat. the pearls around her ankle or fetlock in horse junkie terms, gives it just the right touch. and she does blend in well in her high home

That's what I sing everytime I see this pony. :lol:

Haha, thank you. Won't probably draw this pony again though because of the whole BSS thing.. I dunno how that works, I mean I came up with the design but she came up with the name, idea for the flutter pony body, feathered wings, and colors. So should I just change her name and make her mine? I dunno. o.o

Ok...so you are a better pony artist than me...but I will try to crit ya.
The colors are nice
the mane and tail are well drawn, and colored nicely.
The only complaint I have is the massive size of the wings...and how square it hits the body. I just think that ponies have smaller wings that attach right at the withers. The wing itself is wonderfully drawn...just large.
The clouds are perfect...maybe if you draw her again a sunrise/set would be neat..with purple pink clouds and soft orange refected on her body.
Over all I really like her! And like I said you are better than me...so don't take me too seriously.

Oh don't be silly Whippet.. :lol: I think you draw ponies better than I, and am honored you took some time to crit one of my pony arts! :hug:

Yes yes, the wings do really need to be altered... Since she has a Flutter-esque body, the wings should've been moved up in the first place. BUT you did bring up a great point there, how pony wings are smaller at the joint and such. BabyStarshine wanted large feathered wings, so I went alittle overboard. :lmao:

Anyways, when I get back to drawing again, I'll gladly take your comment into consideration. (and draw a better background too) Thank you. :D

I think you're right about the wings- If they were moved up just a fraction, they'd blend in better. I really love the wings themselves, though. They're a work of art alone! Shaded and colored to perfection, if I do say so myself. ^^ The blue points are a really nice touch- especially on her muzzle.

I love her hair, too. The colors you picked are stunning, and really add to the artistic quality of the picture. The background's too simple for the pony, but then again, not only do I have no room to talk, but also, the main focus of the picture is what you want people to notice- not the background.

I think I'm in love with this pony. A definite favorite. ^^

Yeah! Now that you mention it the markings are kinda like a Siamese kitty's... but they look cool on the pony, too, it really is an original & nice touch! :D

This is absolutely amazing! One of your best, I could say. Beautiful detail on the wings, it's almost as if you can feel the fluffness of the feathers. The little glitters in the mane are a perfect touch as well. Advanced Critique encouraged? Can't help you out there, ^^; I see nothing wrong with this. You already said to move the wing up a little higher. Perhaps a little sparkle could be added to her head mane?
