Well, Photoshop finally cooperated with me after some tough love, so I was able to actually color this thing.
I've decided I'm going to start doing a Portrait Series with some of the ponies from the show. The portrait series will consist of detailed head sketches on a background I think fits the theme of the particular pony being drawn, something you could hang on the wall as a framed portrait. I'll cover all main 6 and branch out to some of the background ponies and characters as I see fit. In fact, as I type this, I realize I already have one or two that fit into the Portrait series... cool.
