I drew this for, and because of, a friend of mine here on dA. =h2g2guy
consistently provides me with in depth feedback and comments on things I've drawn. Now, he has produced a great variety of Pony arts and crafts himself (even made his own pretty awesome looking Octavia plushie
!) made even more impressive by the fact that he had pretty much scorned anything artistic Prior to Pony, but is occasionally frustrated by his drawing ability.
Anyway, in a recent comment conversation that we had regarding something that he'd posted, I said something along the lines of 'just find what works for you and do
it'. Thinking a bit more about that I realised that I should take my own advice, I've been less than happy with some of the things I've been trying out recently which has a lot to do with my desire to find some sort of unique style that I can draw comfortably and easily. So I tried something new again, and the combination of the "Just Do It" slogan, Pinkie's felt check mark and Dash-in-a-hat that I've used to represent myself sprang to mind as a subject.
So, thank you for all the comments, and both the intentional and unintentional help you've provided me with!
This was drawn in Artstudio for iPad using a stylus using a method I'd never tried before, sketched out yesterday evening and then coloured in a few spare hours today.
To be honest though, it's quite sad that I'm posting this now. I should really be off on holiday, but the whole thing has been cancelled due to the massive fire at Nairobi airport...
