Sleepy Little Crusaders by AleximusPrime Sleepy Little Crusaders by AleximusPrime
I was going to digitize this the way I usually do but I decided to go for something different this time. The lineart is messy cuz I didn't trace over my traditional lineart like usual, I just brought the contrast up high enough to make solid black lines and then I filled it in with color. I also made the ends of the lines taper out and then took it in Paint.net and put a shading layer over it and lowered the opacity to give it a 3D look. I do kinda wish I digitized it the usual way though really the image is so incredibly adorable I doubt anyone will care. :icondawwplz:

Enjoy the diabeetus guys! :D

Thanks!  I don't usually draw this way, I usually do an extensive digital trace of the original sketch I make and make it more of a vector quality but this style works too.  :3

They should be on Too Cute! I can see it all now:

Narrator: This is the story of three little fillies. The Pegasus, Scootaloo, led the way into the world. Then came the unicorn, Sweetie Belle. And finally, there was Apple Bloom, the earth pony.

The real beauty of this is that your art style barely differentiates between fillies and full grown mares...

Not that I have a problem with that...

(Still waiting on "Sleeping Shining Armor and Princess Cadance," btw)

Funny, I actually used to do all black lines... and then my new style was doing the colored lines like ponies do. you, on the other hand, did the reverse... funny. :D

I prefer this coloring style to your usual style~ I'd be curious to see what it'd look if you colored the lines like in the show instead of all black.

Well I usually do color the lines, but here I left them back as well as leaving the whole 'messy' linework style.
