I Tried G3's Promotional Art Style
« on: August 15, 2021, 01:11:37 AM »
I was once "famous" in a small cartoon fandom for accurately drawing with the show's distinct style. This was a couple years ago now, but could the observational skills I learned help me replicate other styles as well? I closely inspected several references of G3's promotional art, and tried implementing every visual detail to draw January Joy authentically.

It's not immaculate and my posing choice wasn't too adventurous, but I'm fairly satisfied otherwise! The toughest points were shading her body, and the hat's fringe for her symbol. I seriously neglected finishing this artwork for months due to a party hat. :P Regardless, attempting an unfamiliar style with January Joy was fun and will be my MLP Arena icon for a while!

Great job, her symbol looks spot on!

I've always found the G3 box art style fun, especially the way they go with pale lineart for dark colours.

Love this! I love the G3 art style. It gives such a glowy, shiny feeling especially with the lineart and how the highlights are done. Well done!!!

This is so cute! I know there was a drawing meme on Deviantart where you drew your pony OC in your own style, and then in the style of each of the generations. You should try it sometime!

Thanks a bunch to everybody for the artistic compliments, I appreciate them all! :heart: I'm glad I could faithfully replicate such a gorgeous, nostalgic art style. G3 had the most consistently beautiful artwork of any MLP generation, in my opinion!

I haven't created any pony OCs in years I'm afraid, but perhaps using January Joy or another canonical pony I like for that multi-generational style challenge could be fun! Thanks for your suggestion ^.^
