Drew this for myself so I actually have a dedicated profile picture to use around the Interwebz, because Vinyl Scratch is best pony in my eyes. I wasn't going to upload it to be a butt, but opted to upload it because why not, right?
I have no idea how I would do it but I NEED to learn from you! My style is SO STALE ... sweet celestia, the ears, how you managed to ruffle the shadows... the lighting is so crisp and clean! I have GOT to start making my shading more context sensitive and not just blanket ambient occlusion...! And the texture of her MANE O_O so sleek, so clean --but most importantly, her eyes...
they capture an incredible expressive depth with how her pupils retain some color bleed from the iris, and how her irises catch light differently WITHIN the eye, around their edges... the quirk of her brow, the confidence and attitude.
THIS is the QUINTESSENTIAL VINYL SCRATCH. A picture all other vinyl scratches could reach for referentially.
If I didn't favorite this, it would be a crime against art itself.
