Pretty purple princess by Angerelic Pretty purple princess by Angerelic
About 2-3 hours excluding sketching.
I've stated many times that I find wings to be exceptionally hard to draw, and yet in the end I find myself doing them anyway.

slight edit: There was a line in her left wing inside her mane that when found annoyed me greatly. It has now been amended.

you make her face so pretty. something about how her bangs sit over her eyes makes her look intelligent and cute at the same time.

This piece is very well done and very original! i love the way that you created a cascading light source that accents all of the shading and design very well. I also love your style of character design and the subtle backdrop you created. Can't wait to see more! Great work! Kind regards, Princess Luna

Oh, and o'course, the way you rendered the shadows here is plenty nice too. The only uncertain bit is under her right ear (to our left), but it's so minor as to be unnoticable without a precise look. All in all, the shading is lovely and shows the curve of her wings and her body and how the light falls on it very well.

The assorted angles and placement of the feathers, as well as the quality of the hair with that lovely shine and that fashionably unbrushed look and that beautiful unevenness it has, and those eyelashes and the very large irises, and finally, the well-rounded and beautifully curved shapes of the body (the torso and how it curves into the back, as well as those legs with that lovely shoulder) all together make for a lovely impression indeed.
Oh, and Twilight is the single very best pretty purple princess. She's grown into the winged look well since she first got them, even if there've been no new episodes with her winged look since then. Ah, Twilight... <3

Well done!

You could not possibly be biased towards Twilight. You must be an Applejack fan!
Haha, jokes aside. Thank you for the response! Yeah about that ear. I was not sure about the shadows so I went with whatever. Funny how I've previously been struggling with these flapping, feathery limbs; but now I managed to get them really good looking in a very short amount of time.

Some people I've spoken to regarding this picture, many (almost all) agreed that she looks slightly older here.
When I do comics I draw them closer to the cartoon style because it's easier and just looks better in comics. For pictures like this I, well, do it like what you see here. (does not apply to my older stuff - that was then. Now, any pony picture/portrait/non-comic I make will be done in the same way with improvements)

Well, I'll be honest, a lovely picture of Twilight is more likely to get feedback from me. But I still love all of them. Just in a different way.
The sharp ends of the ears here made them appear somewhat bat-like. But what I was referring to was the bit of shading at the base of her ear, which could perhaps be shaped a bit more precisely. But it's a really complex part there in terms of how the body curves and how light falls, so yeah.
As for the "older", I can easily say that it's because of the larger nose/muzzle and the mouth. Had they been smaller, she would've been looking proportionally younger.
You did a lovely job in any case.

Oh, and if you can, in fact, do more AJ, that'd be very welcome. And Rarity, too.
