Classy Darling by Jowybean Classy Darling by Jowybean
For some bizarre reason I kept imagining chrysalis with a southern accent when i was drawing this almost like New Orleans. :?

As much as I enjoy doing rough speed painting and digital painting I really do want to create stronger polished pieces :eager:. That’s partly why the title cards are taking so long. i need to re learn about my drawing tablet again to improve on what digital skills i have already.

Check out my FIM title card project here =D [link]

Until next deviation LATERS :peace:

painted in Photoshop CS6 with my Wacom tablet ☺

Like it:blowkiss:hate it :police: its up to you not marmite :dummy:

I must say, this is a very interesting piece of art. The fact that you decided to go against the norm and make Chrysalis well, lady-like clearly is the strong point here. The background is nice and vivid for the occasion, although Octavia looked a bit out of place. I really am wondering what those two are talking about! Your art style and lighting is well done. It adds a very nice texture to the art. The disagreeing look from Cadence coupled with Chrisalis's new found poise and manners clearly brings the art to live. Good job and a good effort on this one!
What do you think?

I love this piece. The shading and rough color palette give it a very "Norman Rockwell" feel, which, given the scene depicted, fits very well. It also evokes strong thoughts of the French Quarter; I can almost imagine myself standing on that street as this scenario takes place.

I can imagine Queen Chrysalis with a strong Southern drawl, and Cadence almost having the air of a belle. Just the poses alone really make you ask questions of an "If I were there" nature.

Well done! Please do more of these. I'll be keeping a close eye on your work, fellow Deviant.

Chryssy in N'awlins? No, not 'Southern', but I can see her with a Cajun accent.

I love ponies in clothes, and these are some beautiful clothes~
My favorite part is the leaf on Chrysalis' dress positioned in the area where a 'normal' alicorn would have wings, to make up for her dress covering her actual wings.
The expression on Cadance's face is just wonderful, too.
