The many faces of some cheerful mares by RenaTurnip The many faces of some cheerful mares by RenaTurnip
Yyyep, there's more! I did these three between the various faces of Lapis. These were all done after angry Lapis, and before derp Lapis, as sort of breaks in between the troubles I had with his hair. Each of these hairs came out... much much better than Lapis's did, and took me far less effort and trouble, and Grassy's is the only head of hair that gave me very much of a problem, and it was really only the highlighting. The rest was pretty alright. Chatter's hair sparkles/bubbles are really tricky, though, and I expect a certain someone's gonna give me a "hrmm" on that when he gets back home soon :iconderpyponyplz:

Critique and opinions still requested, and any input you guys can give me. I'd appreciate it :iconfluttershyblushplz:

Ahh, hey, I'm sorry... I never got a chance to read your critique, and then one day I decided it was time to do it, and dA told me it expired and it was too late to approve it, and then it deleted it from my inbox, so I couldn't even read it -_- I apologize deeply. I really wanted to read it. I really appreciate it when people do that kind of thing for me, but now it's gone and that effort of yours was wasted. I'm really really sorry about that.

I'd have to be a total nut not to vouch for my silly green girl; she just looks happy and content here. Nice touch with the flower, too (I love drawing that bit). Fae looks pretty nice too, but her mane colour's a little too vivid for my taste. Her glasses kinda makes up for it, though~ :meow:

Grasswhistle will always be the best Pony ~:music:

I suppose you're right about Fae, thinking about it. I intentionally gave her somewhat bright hair because I thought it matched the style, even though Alier had dark hair when I did her (surprise; Fae is a Ponified human). Someone did tell me the highlights here were too bright, but it's possible that the whole mane is that way, even :S I will consider this next time I do her!

With pixels? :omg: How do you put details like the glasses and the little flower in with pixels?
I think the green gal's my favourite, but the red haired one's got some really pretty eyes :love:

RenaTurnip Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013
Fae is certainly very pretty :iconcblushplz:

The flower, I have to be upfront, was a very easy thing to include. Glasses, though? They are deceptively hard to pixel at times, depending on what you're doing. I think I got lucky here, even though the dark teal is kind of a weird colour, but they came out decently in the end and I'm glad for that. Sometimes, though, they give me so much trouble xD

I'd have to say Grasswhistle is my favorite out of this bunch. VERY nicely colored and I love her happy expression :) The others are nice too, of course!

I like the shinyness of Grasswhistle's hair, and the colors you used for her mouth, AND... the flower looks very nice.

RenaTurnip Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013
The colours on her mouth actually took a good five or six minutes to figure out. It can be really surprising how the addition of certain colours or patterns can change how an open mouth looks.

And that flower was a last-minute addition and it's a little tiny but I'm glad I added it <3

The flower adds the needed contrast from the green, since her eyes are shut.

That is the question.

In all actuality I know a lot about why stuff works, but never apply it.
I'll learn one day. one day.

RenaTurnip Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013
That's actually kind of awesome to learn. I'm glad you know these things :P

Several of my friends say that Grasswhistle's greatest assets are her eyes and her flower, which counter and complement her dual green palette perfectly. It wasn't anything I planned when I designed her. I just got lucky xD
