I think you all can tell I'm uploading these pics one per week but I put off uploading Fluttershy's. Sorry. I'll still be uploading the next one this week.

This one is a little weird as the shading somehow didn't turn out dark enough on her front leg. I think there was a problem with the photo because the original sketch does look better. Must have been the lighting. Well the family digital camera sucks, what did you expect. -____-

Anyways, this is the "Butterflies" edition. Next up is "Sparkles".......or should I call it "Magic?"

Very nice work here. Her expression is great, as is her pose. Somewhat reminiscent of Rarity’s, but still unique.

You did a great job with the hair, like before, but I might suggest a little more intensive shading for the portion on the underside of her hair “flip” (if that’s what you’d call it), as well as on the underside of her tail. Those areas should be more in shadow than the hair on the back of her head, I should think.

Also, while the structure of her wing works well and is show accurate, I think there’s a bit of a perspective issue there. It seems to overlap her flank in a way that does not conform to the natural curve of her hip. I might even say that a portion of her wing should be hidden behind her thigh a little bit, given the angle.

But those are my only nitpicks (the hair shading, and the wing). Everything else seems to work pretty well. Nice job on the cutie mark too. Colors are very vibrant. Great job!
What do you think?

Rainbows, Diamonds, Apples, Butterflies, Sparkles, Baloons.

Just wondering will you be doing any other ponies (BG ponies or others?) Your IRL pictures are brilliant! :D

I've thought of it. Thing is, if I do Octavia and Vinyl, their's would have the same name: "Music" D:

Octavia's could be Classical or something, I'm not sure...
