The Thoughts of a Dragonfly


Early Christmas Presents

Posted by Dragonfly the Luminescent , in Pony Dec 24 2011 · 412 views

So as a family tradition, we all open our presents on Christmas Eve (I would like to believe that it's because my eager Dad cannot wait).
So, being the only pony fan in my household (while the others remain neutral about it), my parents got me a grey t-shirt with Rainbow Dash, and under her are rainbow letters that read, "20% Cooler." I love it :lol:. And to match that, they got me a Rainbow Dash toy as a lighthearted joke. :P
I got a couple of other things, along with three Portal shirts, making a total of four for me. :D

Also, my sister got an Ezio toy, and my brother got a Halo Hammer Brute toy. As we were discussing, which one would win if those two were put in a cage match? I'm placing my bets on Ezio. :P


Still Considering ...

Math = Logic
There are many times where I think, "Well, maybe I don't have to close my Pony Boutique, because I really don't want to." Seriously, I really don't want to at all. I love drawing ponies for you guys.
But then this equation brings me back to reality: College + Drawing requests = Disaster.


But I'm glad I got the requests I did! :D


Pony Process

Just in case anyone cared
I figure I might as well put my blog to use.

So here I shall show you people how I draw ponies. ^_^
This isn't a strict order, but it is the basic idea. The order of how I draw the details gets swapped around a lot.

Here is the gallery, but it's fun to explain the stages. So let's explain:

Stage 1 - First I need to draw three basic circles to place the pony's body correctly.
Stage 2 - Then I begin to sketch in the legs, nose, and larger details.
Stage 3 - I add the basic facial expression and more detail.
Stage 4 - Then I draw the mane and tail (and beard for Necro's pony), but the position of these can and most likely will change frequently.
Stage 5 - Now Almost finished with the sketch, I add the smaller details, such as the guitar cable around his neck and chest, guitar details, cutie mark and wings. Here I added a bit to the mane - told ya it changes frequently :P.
Stage 6 - Then I finalize everything, tweaking the details. The mane changed a bit (again), and I drew hair lines in the mane and tail, which I find very fun. I repositioned the cables around his chest, and I erased extra lines I didn't need anymore.
Stage 7 - I outline the pony, putting much more pressure on my pencil.
Stage 8 - I love this stage because of how much it scares people. I erase the lines because the pencil's pressure left indentations in the paper which I can trace with markers.
Stage 9 - With colored markers, I draw over the indents. If I left the pencil marks there, it would show through the marker, giving it an unclean look. And pony outlines are very clean, as everypony knows.
Stage 10 - Once all the outlines are done, I color in the iris with usually three colored pencils. One for the shine towards the bottom, one for the main color, and one faded into the top for the darker shading.
Stage 11 - Now I begin to color in the pony with colored pencils, which is the longest stage of completing it.
Stage 12 - The pony is done, but not complete.
Stage 13 - I go over the colored pencil with a very light grey marker, filling in the tiny gaps of the pencil's coloring, giving it a smoother look. Then I scan the picture, photoshop it to bring back the colors the scanner seemed to forget, and I upload it.
Finally, I show my fellow bronies! :D
