Meet the Bolts by Jowybean Meet the Bolts by Jowybean
Decided tonight at my Birmingham Brony meet up (that was insane by the way B-) :crazy:) I would try and create a finished illustration then my rather sketchy random doodles.

I recently have found myself attached to the relationship between Dashie and Scoots it is rather adorable :aww: .And I wanted to create a scene showing that in a different context. Here it’s dash introducing Scootaloo to a wonderblot (possibly soarin) during a gala event.

This was a challenge to see how I faired with my traditional shading. Because sometimes it feels like even with my skill in digital painting that I have lost some of my formal art training in handmade media. So its nice to go back to my roots once in while =D I do plan on creating more traditional pieces in the future :nod: :eager: and not just ponies either. ;p

Check out my FIM title card project…

Until next deviation LATERS Friends :peace:

is this Cute :meow: Win :winner: Fail :crying:

I think you did fairly well on the shading. Because this is a fanart, I'll give you four stars, but you did a good job of making an interesting scene.
The main problem I have with this is that the wonder bolt pony's head is cut off. I'm not sure if you drew it that way to make it seem like s/he was tall and impressive or just mysterious, but you could have drawn his/her head and still made the wonder bolt seem impressive (i.e., drawing him taller).
Also, the wonder bolt pony's feet are flat and standing right on the horizon line. For a better sense of depth, you could have drawn the feet on the floor, lower down and not directly on the line.
The shading is good, but I feel you could have made it smoother (paper stump or more finger smudging?).
I don't know what vision means...I'll put a five.
Impact is four because the pony's head is missing.
Overall, I think this is very good, and Scootaloo looks so cute! Keep up the good work!
What do you think?

That's RD? Crap, she almost looks like Applejack XD. I'm seeing RD's dress and grape necklace (yes, I call it that), and I'm seeing AJ's mane and her lack of freckles XD.

Amazing drawing!
