Purplebloom by Jowybean Purplebloom by Jowybean

Hello everypony :wave: today I was inspired by the latest episode of the :iconcutieartcrusaders: art podcast where they talked about pieces that used purple. I thought to myself while i was watching i need to try apiece using just this one colour after three hours of nothing but purple this is the result. I experimented with my style a little taking some  influence from the amazing:iconassasinmonkey: B-) and used Applebloom for a contrast to the colour that does no really fit her.

Check out my FIM title card project ;)…

new title card coming soon :dance:

Until next deviation LATERS: peace:

Absolutely awesome concept, may I say, Jowy :D
I love the punchy brushstrokes, her expression, and the sense of action that pervades the whole piece! It's aboslutely amazing :)
Perhaps I would have used a little more contrast - lighter purples, I think there's enough dark purple/black in the piece - but it does look good as a stylistic choice as all the dark purple.
Also, Applebloom's anatomy seems a bit weird - her legs are a little long, and I'm not sure her head would actually reach around that far :P But again, if this is a stylistic choice, then that's fine, and it does still look good.
I really am reaching to find things to critique here! :D

Anyway, fantastic arts! Well done.
What do you think?

That looks great hah, really fun to see works that go with 1 type of colour. In this case purple which turned out really well. There's still enough hue difference to make things stand out like her hair tie, which although a different colour than her original tie, just the contrast and context with the rest of the piece it remains a recognizable point in more than the shape.
Besides that, also just the angle and movement.

Although the sharpness and amount branches do slightly take my eye away from Applebloom (maybe because they're just that... branches), possibly because of her low position (hoof almost toughing the border) I still think it's a solid piece

Oh and you made me all giggly and squee by mentioning me :D

Haha, for a few seconds I thought it was Assassin Monkey, I'll admit! xD  

You did a great job blending your own style with Assassin's, and the value is just great! Makes me want to try it myself... Simply fantastic job! :clap:
Is it just me or does she look just a teensy bit evil with that smile?
