Danger is My Life!! by GreyscaleRainbowXx Danger is My Life!! by GreyscaleRainbowXx
EDIT: OMG!!!!! OwO The amount of attention this has gotten since being featured on Equestria Daily is just unreal!! Thank you guys!!! I appreciate every favorite!!! ;w; I love you all! LJDFAKLDJFALSDJFAKSFJ. owo

Epic Firefly is epic. :3

So this is a celebration for the start of my summer vacation!! I got through my first year of college and had a wonderful time!! :heart:

I felt like painting a pony on my iPad. Then I felt like drawing something super speedy....so yeah. Firefly making lightning in a storm. X3 I stopped trying to mimic the G4 style because it was bleeding into the rest of my art. I did not like that. So I developed my own pony style. It's not really noticeable here besides the eye...so I'll submit more later when I get around to it.

I have my own design for Firefly that looks less like a Rainbow Dash recolor, so I'll do another picture later where she's not a blue-lightning blur.

Painted on iPad Sketchbook Pro and color and texture edits done in Photoshop. Time: 3 hours.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (c) :iconfyre-flye: and Hasbro

Reminds me of "It's a Dangerous Business, Going Out Your Door;" Firefly was the only pegasus who could ride the lightning.

Hahahaha!! ^^; Well you can't magically get good. But what are you saying?! D:< Your art is gorgeous! -smack- Sometime you should borrow my book on wildlife. :3 I improved in a few months after heavily using it and trying to draw realism.

Yes...hands...;w; sounds like you need posemaniacs. :3 that site has some great references for hands and feet! And you can turn them around 360 degrees and stuff. It's real cool!

Yesyesyes!!! 83 Very helpful indeed and by far my favorite wildlife drawing guide! ^-^ I just wish I could find a book of that quality for animals besides the ones in North America. Or even those that are that weren't in that one.

OH YES!! We must! oAo I just love drawing together~! :iconrainbowdashlaplz::iconfluttershylaplz::iconraritylaplz:

Yes it is!! 8D [link] I'm gonna warn you though. The very first image that appears by default is a naked male torso with all anatomy. XD It's shiny grey and white though so it's not realistic in that it's graphic. But still a warning. The list on the right is all hands and feet!! 8D

WOO!!! 8DDD

Oh my gosh! This is awesome! ...Teach me how to draw ponies, please! (XDD Just kidding; I'll experiment with styles and figure out how to draw animals over the summer.)

Anyhow, I love the abstract-ish background, and how the lightning almost seems to glow! ^_^

GreyscaleRainbowXx Featured By Owner May 23, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Hahaha!! XD I can't wait to see what you come up with! There's so many possibilities! I'm warning you though, once you learn and develop a style you'll be drawing your characters as animals more than human. o-o -looks at Vic and Mike- -coughcough-

Thanks! The background wasn't really meant to be abstract though. ^^; I tried really hard with the limited brushes on the iPad to make storm clouds but I'm glad you like it anyway!

Aww, thanks! I sort of gave up, for now, because animals are giving me a hard time, XDD.
...I like drawing my characters genderbent a lot, though...

Really? Sorry! ^_^'
They do look like storm clouds, though.

NEVER GIVE UP!!! BC -smacks you with a rolled up newspaper- If you need help, I have plenty of tutorials and drawing guides to help you! :)

I'm glad they do! No need to apologize...the effect I was going for is really hard to accurately achieve on iPad anyway. ^^;

-Sigh- Right now, I'm in the middle of writer's block AND artist'sbock. I'm starting to get back into a few of my stories (and my ongoing fanfic), but I just don't feel like drawing anything, for some reason.

Ah, okay! C:

Aww I'm sorry to hear that. :c I'm kinda in the same boat lately. I briefly was inspired at the festival to draw in my sketch book but every time I open my laptop inspiration leaves me. :( And when I work with clay I get frustrated. Same with sewing right now. Erg. But I am making some progress in the book..so that's something. ^^ I hope you get inspired soon!

Same with me! Every time I want to draw something, every time I open my sketchbook, I'm like 'Ughh, I don't feel like drawing anymore!'

Yay! That's good!

I know! I'm figuring out random parts of my stories, but when I want to actually write them, it's like 'blahhh'...

amazing effect, really brings the picture to life. How did you do it? You really are a talented drawer. I especially love how you've done the eye - its beautiful!

Blending modes, my friend. Lots of abuse of blending modes. XD Once the picture was finished I emailed it to myself and opened my laptop and messed with levels and blending modes in Photoshop with a texture to bring the whole thing together and make the colors pop more.

Thank you! Painting eyes is always my favorite part of coloring.
