Wow...three days and this has already become my most fav'd piece. Thanks so much to everybody!Edit:
Thanks so much for all the favs, everypony! I'm thrilled you all like it so much!
Woo-hoo! My second digital pony! I really like this one a lot. It took a long time to get the pose looking right, and I'm sure it could still be better, but I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. And Cloudsdale is sooo much fun to draw!
From the get-go, I tried a different approach to coloring and shading, and not only did it produce a better result (I think), but it also took less time, so that's a win-win all around! I still haven't found my definitive style yet, but I think I'm getting closer. I really like this line-less approach, but I'm going to have to get better at shadows and shading if I'm going to make it pop like it should.
I'm rambling now. Enjoy!
