The Twilight Magician WIP by PhoenixDawnCreations The Twilight Magician WIP by PhoenixDawnCreations
My Thing A Day from 1/10/13 - “The Twilight Magician” I’m not afraid to admit that I’m a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic; like every show from Lauren Faust that I’ve seen, I find it to be very well-written, very educational, highly entertaining, and easy to watch while I draw or crochet (which is a must). The other ponies are going to be coming soon, so follow me for updates! :D

I’m going to take a moment to teach you about parody - characters engaging in acts in which they would not engage in per canon, or portrayed in a way which is not characteristic of their origin. For instance, Twilight Sparkle isn’t actually a human, so even though she’s very skilled with magic, this drawing would be considered a parody, and as such is fully protected under the law. Parody is a wonderful way for artists to sell fanart without actually selling fanart (which is illegal without the appropriate permissions, though some laws allow for commissioned fanart, which I am currently investigating further).

The next time that you go to an anime convention, check out the Dealer’s Room/Artist Alley there, and see how many parodies you can spot. :D

This reminds me an awful lot of the cover to the sixth volume of "Lucifer's Halo" from Joseph Michael Linsner's 'DAWN' comic series; it's eerily similar. You a fan?

Striking pose, though the upper part of the body seems to lack the energy of the lower part. Still, a good initial impression.

Something odd I just notice is happening to her left leg, though. A mass of fat/muscle is position in a way that does not sit well above the knee. Also, outfit doesn't strike me as particularly good, but that's just personal preference.

I'm sorry that you feel that way. I'll take your comments into consideration as I continue this series.

Thank you. :) I'd really appreciate it if you could be a little more specific regarding the outfit, though. I've never been strong in clothing design, so getting specific feedback there would be wonderful.

Not an expert on fashion as well, but it comes off as slapping several unrelated things together. The red skirt and the belts seem off to me, like it doesn't belong there.

Then again, the overall fantasy style is something I'm not familiar with, so you may want to consult someone more proficient in that area.

Thank you! The colors were tricky to match to different areas of the drawing, since I didn't want there to be too much of any one value in the same area. :)
