Title: Tropical Sunset's Art
Post by: Tropical_Sunset on February 19, 2020, 06:24:33 AM
I'll be posting my pony art here. My other thread seems to be too old to post in now. Should I update this first post with new art or just comment with new art in the thread as time goes on? What would you prefer?

Here's my latest, a little chibi drawing of Tropical Sunset:

Thank you! I'm glad you like her!!

My first two pony OCs are Tropical Sunset there and her friend, Midnight Sky. I have G3 and G4 art for both of them.

TS's old symbol is shown here in the G1/G3 type style. The symbol I've settled on for her is black hibiscus flowers but I'm not sure if I want to go with two or three...

I love drawing all styles of pony and I'd like to interpret them in G2, Pony Life and even G3.5 styles in the future! I'm currently working on my own pony style too.
Here's a sketch of Tropical Sunset (and some unnamed smug unicorn) in the style I'm developing for myself.

Thank you so much!

Thank you! I had actual G3 lines in mind when I made Midnight Sky (Glitter Celebration) and Tropical Sunset (Dazzle Bright), so I'm glad it looks like they might fit in. :D

Happy Mermay, everyone! Here's Tropical Sunset as a seapony to celebrate!

I have a few more pieces to share. I don't think I ever posted them here.

These two pieces were for a friend and her daughter. Her daughter of course wanted her character to be an alicorn!

This was for an online color challenge using grey, purple, green, and pink. I immediately thought of these two ponies!

Each of these is amazing!  I love your art, and your OCs are beautiful.  The last one with Seashell and Snuzzle reminds me of those "surprise ink" books I had as a child- this is such a cool style and color scheme.   :lovey:

Thanks, everyone. I'm not used to my art getting much attention online so it's nice that I receive feedback here. I really appreciate it.

These two pieces are examples of my bust/icon commissions. The commissioner gets the uncropped bust and a cropped version for icon use.

That's a shame, your art is wonderful! I'm particularly impressed by how effortlessly you're able to vary your style and colouring techniques. (Or at least you make it seem effortless!) I really love the two textured full background pieces in your previous post!

The busts look great, too. Downtime is so cute!
...but omg, what is that book? XD

Those are lovely, the coloring methods you used on Starry Days makes her so vivid, and I love her expression.

LOL My friend that pony is based on is a huge horror/true crime fan. Which is funny because she's so soft and fluffy in personality.

Thank you so much, everyone! Here's another batch of icons I made, this time in my own pony style.
