It's been a while since I last made a batch of artwork around here, but that's mostly because I've been with a cold, and a severe lack of energy. I don't know what's gotten into me but it really affected my productivity. That and also the fact that I haven't had any good idea floating around my boat for a couple of weeks. We also have to add the fact that I'm tired of using this piece of old dust Wacom Bamboo tablet and I want to move onto a bigger, better, more proffesional tablet, so it's basically a combination of many things.
So, until I can get that tablet that I want so much, let's focus on doing traditional artwork. That's still a lot of fun to do, especially when one needs practice. Let's take a look at what I'm bringing today.
So I'm lying on my bed, sick as hell, nose stuffy and throat raspy, while I watch some My Little Pony, when I come to this realization.
"I have no idea how to do hind legs properly"
So I decided to make some random sketches to try and learn techniques on how to do them hind legs look proper, or at least decent. Well, I have to say I am not 100% happy with the results but they look better than I expected, and considering that, when I am as sick as I am now, my productivity goes to basically -50% (yes, that's a negative value right there). Here they are, take a look at them.

This one is the warm up page, some random sketches here and there, nothing major. I always go for Twilight when it comes to random drawings. I think I am obsessed with her or something, and she isn't even my favorite! Cameo by Trixie's hoof on the bottom of the page ^_^;
|Twilight has the best plot. There are two ways to read that, and they are both wrong.|
Don't ask me why I drew this, because you already know the answer. I had a revelation when drawing this, as I now know why John Joseco draws so much pony ass. It's because they are a ton of fun to draw. When drawing this I had no coughing, no sniffles, no stuffy nose, no concerns about my economy, no nothing. I only had one huge grin from side to side and it was awesome. I'm having fun and you can't stop me!!!

EDIT: I was writing this post when I noticed her tail was missing on the right image. My face turned into a mask of terror as I pulled the original drawing, added the tail and re-scanned it. Twilight should never be without her tail. She has the most awesome tail in the whole show!
So there you go. I need to draw more.
