Fabulocity is a Unicorn Diva by Kazekuro Fabulocity is a Unicorn Diva by Kazekuro
::droolingmushbrain::

I haaaaaaaaaaaad to go and say when I penciled her "omg I am so happy how great she came out, and so quickly! Inking is going to be a blast!" I said only a few hours ago "Oh I am totally gonna be able to ink all 3 of these ponies AND color maybe 2 of them"

...3 hours to color Rarity... that is... disturbing because it took 2 hours to do her "hair" which was what I inked the quickest. LOL mostly because I wanted to give it a really SHINY look and trying to actually find a source that AGREED what colour it was was darned hard.

Her 'coiffure' is the most elaborately coloured I've EVER done... 10 different copic markers used to do it. o.O *dribbledrool* but in the end I am sure Miss Rarity herself would be proud.

Yes. I know she's a MUCH lighter shade of grey. She was about 3 shades darker before I finished (thank you rubbing alcohol!) but I had to do it slowly... as her mane and tale were already done. *twitch*


Rarity- Copic SP Multi Liners over BIC Mechanical Pencil with Copic Sketch Marker for colour on X-Press It Blending Card.

Oh how I love you google images. No rights ment to be stepped on really I am just practicing the style because I went and joined the herd. I admit it.

I especially like the mane and coat colouring / shading.

I am so happy that I am getting Brony approval of the art and at 116 faves but so few comments every single bit of feedback I am getting I really do treasure. I am taking a small break now that I have done the mane 6. I had a week off spent with my girlfriend and now it's back to "HOLY HELL I HAVE A CONVENTION IN LESS THAN A MONTH!?" grind but I hope I'll be able to do more ponies soon because they are SERIOUSLY way too much fun to draw. >^.^<

Sorry I couldn't give more than I did, but the only things I could see that could be improved you already pointed out in the description. I'm just amazed you did that with pencils and whatnot-I can't make things that nice with my computer, even if I only use MS paint. I'm always impressed to see an actual traditional artist who shows such great skill!

It's never easy to do art and work right under a deadline-I'm sure nobody here would hold that against you ^^

And yes, they ARE fun to draw.

SUPER FUN TO DRAW!!!! I kinda like the convention deadline but at the same time I like it more when I have nothing but art to focus on, all laundry done, plenty of food/snacks/soda in the house, etc etc so I can just focus on the art.

LOL like I said any little 'woot' or 'boo' even without a fave is better than just faving something.

GAH JEALOUS! I have Photoshop... it's right here... on my laptop... I have no idea how to use it. To this day I scan my work in via paint, save it as jpeg via paint and then upload it. I have no idea how to do digital work. So I am jealous of anyone who can. Grass is always greener!

I've tried using Photoshop. I don't know anything about it, like how to use the little side features, sharpen/blur all that-I just use GIMP if I want to make things get complicated. I guess it's just about the same thing, though-and for picture quality, always save as a PNG, it keeps everything from getting all pixellated and whatnot, for a clearer picture (learned the hard way)

I'm sixteen-aside from the classwork, I have nothing BUT time to do things. I just never do xD Even just the simple pixel work I do takes unreasonable amounts of time to do, but I can't draw well by hand so what else would I do, y'know?

ROFLMAO Okay sorry- not laughing at you laughing at the fact that I have this so locked and loaded.... at 16 my art was absolute crap. I thought I was brilliant. I thought I was soooo awsome and one day I'd be a great artist then I'd see my friends who were REALLY good artists and I went "well I suck". But I just drew... all the damn time. Always. I'm 100% self taught. I work with trial and error and if I'm really stumpped I ask people how they do stuff.

I'm a 'professional' and no idea how I got there. Seriously. I'm baffled by the level of talent that surrounds me and go 'omg this stuff is crayons and glitter glue compaired to' [fill in name here] anyone CAN draw they just need to work on it.

...the special buttons on the side of photoshop scare me. But thanks for the PNG image memo- I totally missed that and wondered why that was done! Thanks! I know people who swear by GIMP I've seen it be used just never used it myself it looked like an open source Photoshop so if my copy of PS hadn't be free (I worked at an NPO long story) I would have gotten that but I don[t wanna delete the software to put on GIMP for some strange horder reason.

But seriously, I'm gonna cross my fingers I end up at a convention sometime and I get to meet ya S17, just to say thanks. >^.^<

I will admit that I'm better using real paint on a canvas than I am digital stuff, and I never took a class on how to that kind of thing-I just jumped in and started doing it, and I'm always rather impressed with the results-apparently I use a style similar to Van Gough's, with small strokes and lines like he did...
All it takes to be good is practice and perseverance, and the right people to tell you to keep going

No problem, and I had to use Photoshop in a yearbook class at my school, and I always had to ask other people to just do it for me. And like I said, GIMP really just feels like the same thing but a bit simpler

It could be a LONG time before that happens-I've never been to a convention before, and wouldn't know where to start on anything about one ^^;

LOL I never went to cons until I started going as an artist I didn't realize how many there are until then and looking back I wish I had started to go as a fan. I mean I live in little New England and I have 8 cons between April and November JUST in 3 states. They are fun go with friends have a good time and enjoy being around fellow geeky people.


OooooOOOooo jealous of ability to paint! I was never very good my hands aren't steady enough but seriously Van Gough is my favorite artist so mad props!

Thank you VERY much I truly appreciate it! I always used to upload my art as WIPs at least on my FB then post the final here and at some point over the last year I stopped doing that until my Pony series it was sort of awesome to scroll easily to see the changes from pencil to ink to final color. Thank you for saying you like it so much. >^.^<

Ha ha ha^^ xD. Yeah, it's amusing how Rarity always goes crazy whenever something bad happens to her dress, her own mane or tail or her face xD.

Oh and Kazekuro have you heard of a game called My little pony fighting is magic?^^ I've seen a trailer of the game and it's being made by a development team called Mane6 it looks really cool and they're also featuring a multiplayer online mode so you can face other people across the world^^

Thank you! Hard not to be proud of her- now I am just shocked because after doing her I colored Applejack today so quickly I was able to ink Fluttershy and I am almost done inking Pinky Pie. Will post AJ tonight.

Thank you!!!! It took sooo long to do but I think it was worth it... no not the gold silk. LOL my TV shows the character one color, my Laptop another and not two images agree the websites are JUST as bad most often rarity looking diamond white instead of soft grey so I just went with the Hex-codes posted on the MLP Pony Wiki... which I then had to figure out how it translated into the COPIC color wheel and because I don't own EVERY color that got.. interesting.

:iconraenlen: just said that she kinda laughs when she sees me post the times for my art because I work from home I'm notorious to get up, walk around, go wash a dish or two, come back, move to another piece etc. But Rarity was two hours of sitting on a really horrible couch doing her mane and tail- getting up for a drink or a bathroom break. My cat was quite miffed XD

(Also, seriously, thank you for the comment I hadn't gotten one but plenty of faves)

ROFL yeaaaah I got Twilight, Rainbow and Rarity 'outta the way' because I knew they would be the hardest- Twilight's cutie mark made me want to bang my head on the wall >.< so... intricate. But Applejack is ready to be colored, Fluttershy ready to be inked just Pinky Pie is being... illusive XD of course the character I click with the most is being the most difficult XD

GOOD LUCK!
