Guess what, more mina work ;)

Oh yeah, big surprise. Anyways got mostly through writing chapter 1. Have a few arguments at the Council of Clans to suss through but once that is done, Chapter 1 will be roughed in! SO exciting. Except I rather expected to get more done this holiday break but I guess I needed a holiday!

Mina x RD is doing much better. I was feeling pretty upset but the wife talked me through it and I knuckled down and gave RD some better shading, cleaned up Mina's Hair and RDs Mane and Tail (I like her mane ;) ). Also she has hooves! Also, flipped this image has a ton more energy...

More Mina X Rainbow Dash

Speed paint my rear! Anywho, more painting done. About 50% there. If only I was more experienced. Not bad for my 2nd paint. I struggled HORRIBLY with the face and had to use some very powerful tools and several walks round the property in order to get it working. One very pretty image. One of these days my anatomy will improve till then I will just try and enjoy myself!

More Mina X Rainbow Dash, basic general colors

Almost no time right now, but I found a few moments to lay out the color blocking. This is still very nascent. In the end it will look like the other Mina Paint.

Mina x RD Progress at last

I was stuck for quite a while on what style to use when going into painting mode for the Mina Riding Rainbow Dash. I decided I needed more practice with the work-flow I used with Mina Dancing. So in the immortal words of Rainbow Dash.. here we go!

Got the light and shadow pretty much worked out and blocked in. I am nearly ready to start blocking in the colors, however my task chair has no arms and after a while my shoulder really hurts so I suppose I am done for tonight. I really wanted to get more along, but there is always tomorrow. I want this to be the speed paint it should be. I know no one is probably viewing this, but for my own edification.

Every Little Girl's Dream, Mina Riding Rainbow Dash Sketch done.

Well the progress on my third Mina drawing is going well and should result in my Second digital paint. I have not decided on a Copic style paint or if I will try to blend the Pony art style with my Mina Art style on the complex side and do a Digital Oils. Time will tell. Next up is a Scan in and a digital Inking of this sketch.

As usual with my sketches first comes the photo via my cell phone, haha I know.. my scanner is not setup yet. Also, you will note that Mina appears to be growing up with every drawing. I suppose this is to be expected. I love ya sis.
