Let The Sleeping Giants Lie by LavosVsBahamut Let The Sleeping Giants Lie by LavosVsBahamut
Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle, from My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic.

Why is it that I'm only able to get about one proper drawing done each month? I really need to draw more stuff, more often. I also need to draw more monsters, even though they are really difficult to draw in color.

This picture is essentially the newest addition to the "Arcane" set of pictures, depicting the ponies in a darker, JRPG influenced continuity. There's no fanfic to depict the events of the story, but if there are going to be more of these pictures, I might combine them into an illustrated short story of sorts.

As always, this was drawn with water soluble color pencils, and finished with white gel pen.

Credits for the ponies goes to Lauren Faust and Hasbro.

What kind of cutie mark they are training to get, A venturer cute mark, or maybe monster slayers ?

Since this pic takes place in an alternate timeline (says so in the description), I'd say that they already have their marks by now, but they just aren't visible in the picture.

Apple Bloom has a potion bottle, and a philosophers stone, so it's probably alchemy related. Sweetie Belle on the other hand has an instrument, so hers is probably a music related one. Though I'm pretty sure she doesn't use that instrument just to play music.

I must say your art is the most amazing traditional pony art i've ever seen in all of deviantart! I do some traditional art myself but nothing of my work will ever compare to yours! it's so beautiful and real! and the way that white gel pen adds effects to the drawing. Keep up the amazing work!

No room for scoots? But I always bring a chicken on my adventures! Regardless, I love it! I won't mention your skill with pencils again because it's..wait, I just did..Oh well, the uniforms for Sweetie and Applebloom look great, and the monster is quite terrifying.

Yup, no room. At first she was located behind the monster, at that blank space above the harpoon. But since I coldn't use much details due to her small size, I decided to erase her. She just didn't look good there.

And thanks. =D

Actually, since this is a timeskipped alternate timeline, they probably already have their marks. The clothing's just covering them.

Hohoo oot taas elementissäs. Nyt on taustaa, ilmeitä ja monstereita. Todella hyvä yhistelmä :D

Alat olla aika pro jo noiden ponien varjostamisessa ja värityksessä, mutta pakko sanoa että hirviö ei ole ihan samalla tasolla... kaipaisi ehkä vähän kiiltävämpää tyyliä? Nyt ei ihan käy selväksi onko monstrolla karvoja vai mistä on olento tehty. Tyksin kuitenkin todella paljon tuosta sumusta mitä oot saanu tuohon ujutettua. Ja vuoret oikeasti näyttävät siltä että ovat jossain kaukana. Oisin kaivannut aurinkoa yläkulmaan, mutta kaikkea ei voi saada. On silti oikein onnistunut kokonaisuus.

Ookko ajatellu ikinä että teet tuollasen mörön ensin mustavalkoiseksi ja sitten vain kevyesti värität päälle jollain värillä? Meinaan vain että kikkailin joskus sillä siun Pit Lordilla hiukkasen ja se ei vaatinu kuin läpinäkyvällä brushilla päällemaalailua ni sopi vaikkapa punaiseksi ihan noin vain ;P

Kiitoksia.

Jees, monstereita on tosiaan vaikea oikeen mennä värittelemään, ja mustavalkonen on paljon helpompi toteuttaa. En itsekkään tiedä mistä tuo ötökkä on tehty. Ja tuo sumu onkin vain simppeli temppu pyyhekumilla, joka toimii yllättävän hyvin (ja piilottaa virheitä ja typeryyksiä). :lol:

Oon kokeillu mustavalkosen kanssa värittämistä vaan parissa kuvassa, ja vaikka ne näytti ihan kivalta, en menis kokeilemaan turhan usein. Ja tämä paperi joka kestää vettä, on vähän turhan karkeaa omille lyijykynätekniikoille (tulee vaan sotkua).

Short story yes please. :) You'd be insulting yourself if you didn't. Hell, I and maybe even a couple others would probably write a story for you if you arent up to it in the end. (wich reminds me, I really to get around to finnishing chapter 2 of Fists of Resistance)

I have one part of the story taking place in this continuity saved up, but it's supposed to be accompanying a picture I never got around to finish.

I've though about finally drawing it, and attaching the story, but I just haven't felt like it yet. I blame laziness. ^^;
