Rain Chaser - Zaphy1415926 OC Portrait Sketch by AncientOwl
Rain Chaser - Zaphy1415926 OC Portrait Sketch
Sketch I did over the last hour for /u/Zaphy1415926 on reddit to practice my sketching, considering I've only drawn 2 other things all year. Standard portrait for me, but I tried something a bit different this time around and started from the eye out to the hair instead of the other way around like I usually do.
Fluttershy Sketch - Sadness by AncientOwl
Fluttershy Sketch - Sadness
So I finally draw something new, but it's been a few months, and it shows. I'm trying to work on bodies now, so I've been copying and reimagining some pieces I've seen that I like. This particular sketch of Fluttershy is based on one of initial concept pieces of her by Lauren Faust before she became a Pegasus. I copied the initial design and made it a bit more detailed, but this was more of a practice piece than a finished product. It's rough, it's ugly, but I'm still content with it for now.
Twilight Sparkle Portrait Sketch by AncientOwl
Twilight Sparkle Portrait Sketch
I finally draw something new after 4 months, and it's a heavily edited version of someone else's drawing of Twilight. Oh well.

I came across a portrait QueenBloodySky did of Twilight and I felt like I had to draw it. Nothing was going to stop me from doing that. Grabbed some paper and a pencil and cranked this out in 30 minutes. I didn't want to just blatantly copy their work like I used to do, so I modified it into the style I have been working with for the last few years so I could at least say this was partially mine. I'm still proud of it nonetheless.…
I started a commission thread on Reddit a few days ago, and seeing as it got way more hits than I thought it would, my album is going to see a huge upsurge in content over the coming month. If anyone else would like a commission, leave your request in the comments. I'm doing them for free.
