Epony's Face When Art~ (Edit and Pencil Colored) by EponymouslyEponymous Epony's Face When Art~ (Edit and Pencil Colored) by EponymouslyEponymous
This is a simple edit of my piece "Epony's Face When Art~" as well as an experiment with colored pencils.

The editing includes changes fixing mistakes in the perspective and similar issues that I didn't catch or correct my first time. These include making the desk taller to remove the oddity of having Pinkie sitting below the level of the desk but with her hoof resting on the edge in the middle. The stool legs as well as Pinkie's legs were adjusted to look more like the were on the same "ground". Pinkie was also moved closer to the desk, just because. Most of these changes were suggested and experimentally adjusted by my friend and something of a mentor, ~ponyrake.

As far as the coloring goes. I've experimented with using colored pencils on scans of my original sketches and in traces using colored pencils a few times already... this piece is the latter. However, I've never been very happy with how they turn out. The colors I can pick from are limited and never seem to come out as I imagine. Not only that, but color data seems easily lost in the scanning. That said, I think this is one of the better results I've had really. I don't plan to continue making art this way though as I'd rather color digitally using my art programs. Trouble is I don't have a tablet or even a mouse for natural strokes, making vectoring my only "comfortable", yet highly time consuming option. Also, I'd like my art to have some kind of "organicness" to it, if that makes sense... and vectors aren't that way so much. Perhaps expect more color pictures if and when I get a tablet, or maybe more vectors of existing art if I decide to dive into one of those projects.
