Rarity's Harmonic Benevolence, shaking that spectacular silvery plot in the enemies' general direction.

Found it yet? I'd like some input on the composition here:

(a bit too wide for the forums)

I swear, I started humming "Art of the Dress" while drawing this thing.

Stroke by stroke, sketching it together...

Blarg, coloring. I feel like I'm floundering with coloring. I'm much more confident when all I'm doing is lines.


Mech needs more shading, I think. Does it? It's a little flat..

You could try doing some shading on the mech.

The actual meaning of that is completely lost on me. More pictures or more shading?

Eh, I believe I'll leave it as it is for now. I like lines more than shading.

So, in slightly unrelated news, Trixie has won a super-revival vote over at the GitP Heal/Hurt game, after all the effort we have spent to put her down and keep her down until she couldn't be revived by normal means. This has prompted me to draw this:


"Anything" we can do, you say?

It'd be easier for her to just create the Shadowbolts than actually control however many mechs the Rangers will end up facing. Besides, there'll be plenty of mech-less Shadowbolts et al for the Rangers to fight, and whoever survives the initial skirmish gets the mechs, at which point the Rangers call theirs, and the fight resumes.

Beginning proper detail on Benevolence:

(also, still in the New Year aftermath?
Your spelling is usually better than that, IIRC. )

I'm wondering, maybe I should change the design of the diamond-glasses so that they cover more of the face? Also, they look mighty flat from this angle, when they are actually conforming to the face, covering the area where eyes would be on a pony, but I guess shading can address that.

I'll have "un problemo grande" again when I'll inevitably try to set up the scene here, but for now the character outlines are done.

Spoiler:

Viewing it here is easier.

I personally can't wait to try and design Pinkie's Anxiety. I've got precious few vague ideas on how her mech even works, save for several systems I believe I have figured out, like how exactly its hind legs effectively double in size and thickness to form the shoulder cannons on the MegaHORD.

Yes. One thing: even accounting for perspective, her front legs seem a bit on the small side.

Oh, what shall I do?

...

You know, I appreciate it when sound critique is delivered slightly before it's too late to address it.

Oh well. It's not exactly "too late", but I'm rather lazy and I'd rather create an explanation for it rather than edit it. Besides, it doesn't look all that wrong to me.

Anyway, further progress:

Spoiler:
Now, I would like to request some input on the matter. I'm trying to imagine the surroundings for this scene. I've just thrown the backdrop together to get a feel for lighting conditions, but I can't come up with something that'd look right in the scene. This is, theoretically, a battle against Nightmare Moon's mooks in the Everfree Forest. Given how a forest is mostly trees, they'd be a likely candidate for inclusion, but I don't want it to be quite so bland. Plus, I can't draw a whole forest. I'd burn out after the first twenty trees.

edit: Swapped in a newer pic. Do you think Rarity having a spear as her Ranger weapon is appropriate? I chose it simply for the name "Sapphire Spike", referencing Spike. The spear itself would be a mix of greens and purples, like Spike himself.

The only other option is a scourge or spiked flail themed after Opalescence, and I can't come up with an appropriately punny name and appearance for it at the moment.

Trees are easy to mass-produce if you don't mind looking like a lazy bastard.

As for an idea, Opal Flail is a simple name, which doesn't exactly fit with Rarity, but the flail could be decorated with the namesake stone and slightly curved spikes reminiscent of a cat's claws.

Sorry, it didn't really stick out to me until you started coloring it.



On the topic of weapons: Using the spear could mean having Spike as an actual sidekick/companion for her, who transforms into her weapon, a la Soul Eater.

Well, I guess it's better to just see the forest than not see the forest behind the trees, right? Also, colored White Ranger (heh, colored white)
