Harmony Stargazing by DarkFlame75 Harmony Stargazing by DarkFlame75
Harmony from The End of Ponies takes a break while stargazing atop the Pie Family residence.
"She saw the bright shinies!"

Harmony is a character in The End of Ponies by short skirts and explosions. [link]

Big thanks to short skirts and explosions for writing such an inspiring fic. This won't be the last piece I make for it I hope. Also thanks to viwrastupr and Living_Dead on the r/MLPDrawingschool subreddit. They both gave me tons of tips and helped me learn how to make this, seeing as it's my first attempt at a background and my fourth attempt at shading a pony (Two of the others being this same image but without help). One of the biggest things I learned in making this piece is that I suck at backgrounds.

Also, this functions as days 7 and 8 of my project. I might draw something else for day 8 too, but I might not.

Don't suppose you'd be able to render a higher resolution version of this? :3

This thing sucks. I'm never touching it again. This was literally my first time ever trying to shade a drawing. Emphasis on "ever" and "trying."

I figured as much. I just love how it fits so well on my phone, and just wanted to try my chances :3

so much love for this fic, and for Harmony. (Scootaloo is best pony!)

I really want to see what Dreadgemane looked like, because the structure of the town sounds really interesting, with the ravines and tightly packed houses reaching upwards shadowing the streets below.

You and me both hahaha.

Maybe someday. You'll see the interior of the Harmony first. (And yes it's going to be mostly accurate to the EoP canon. I got the layout from short skirts himself and he's seen the WiP.)

You got feedback from the master himself?! Can't wait to see your interpretation of the harmony, I should really crack open my pencils, this fic has had me spellbound, the fantastic imagery and immersive storyline are just out of this world,how can something fill you up AND leave you very, very empty at the same time?

Ill be watching you.

I had a great idea for a Dredgemane scene. I think it will be my next project.

And yes, I've gotten (And am continually getting) input from short skirts. I'm friends with him on Steam and I often stream my drawing, he's often the only person watching.

So...he hasn't said anything about Harmony's next anchor has he? Or is that strictly under wraps?
DarkFlame75 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Oh he has... But I'm not sure if he'd like me sharing it. Read the next arc (Rough draft is on ponychan) and you'll find out I think.
