Butterflies by AleximusPrime Butterflies by AleximusPrime
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

Amazing. That's impressive Alex. Magic I believe is appropriate because she represents the spark that unites the friendship they have. Excellent work.

Yeah, but her cutie mark looks more like sparkles so I think I should name it that. I am naming them after what their cutie marks appear to be since that is the main focus of the pic.

You absolutely nailed the curve on her mane. My only issue has to do with her wing. Even when taking the perspective into account, her wing looks too far up her body. The wing almost looks like it's attached to her neck. Again, this might just be the perspective.

Otherwise, not too much to complain about here.

:iconaleximusprime:
AleximusPrime Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I think it is the perspective, plus, you gotta look at the spot right where the entire circle that shapes her wing ends on both parts.
