nah, somehow that’d be too weird if you ask me. i’ll go with them being sterile.
Rarity being fabulous, even in defeat (the first image with all the doodles can be viewed at a higher resolution): http://www.mane6.com/2012/06/bite-size-update-week-5.html
i wish i had something more to add. i really like it!
oh yeah, that too.
eyup. but with any luck twilight becomes the next immortal princess so he’ll at least have someone to complain to.
like i said, for ponies, going by granny smith and how twilight said they have wrapped up winter in ponyville traditionally for hundreds of years. now granny was there at the founding and she also knew diamond tiara’s great-grandfather(!), so she’s gotta be OLD.
now dragons can take 100 year naps without greater problems, so they gotta get OLD too.
and draconies is simply taking a relative medium that leans closer towards the pony age.
edit: and even if it turns out ponies don’t live that long, i’ll stick with draconies getting at least 500.
clear your head,
smoke a cig, get ideas.
i guess. i don’t want to melt the poor cutie enough to find out.
not sure…my go-to tutorial for anything colours/rendering/shading is this one: http://androidarts.com/art_tut.htm
things i can think of at the moment: if you have warm light, use a cold shadow, and vice versa. (unless you want to push the “picture temperature” into the extremes - say, making a scene look extremely hot). experiment. a layer set to multiply (in photoshop) is great here because you can use colour sliders to change the hue whenever you want. personally i have an easier time putting everything into shadow at first and then erasing out the highlights.
colours in general:
in regard to palettes for characters, i would NOT recommend using complementary colours, the contrast is usually too great. oh yeah, never use pure black. far too strong and just seems unnatural.
i’m not sure what exactly you’re looking for, so if you have any specific questions, let me know.
Everything. Sometimes more from this, sometimes more from that. It varies from day to day. A healthy mix of all three is what keeps things interesting.
i was thinking more along the lines of nurse pony doesn’t want her brother to steal and often ends up treating him. drama all around.
