This is a Ponyfinder character that I did for my friend Kablam Pony on FimFiction. This Earth Pony is supposed to be a pony version of Randy Savage with his signature shutter glasses and his cocksure smile that hades his over the top flare of this showmanship. This was a two and a haft hour work that I did on this, which I do have to admit that it was a rushed job, but it was part of my attempts of trying to get into the habit of producing a one piece every two or three days, to get into a grove of producing, preferably not without making any compromises on the quality of work. But sometime, constantly producing fly brings more interesting results rather than just thinking it over and pondering on how I am going to do it.
For Randy himself, I just did a sketch then the ink line for the Earth Pony base then added the clothing, and then revolved the unwanted lines on the base and merged the both of them together. After that, I selected the outside with the wand, then inverted it, created another layer underneath it and filed it with a base color. Still Selected, I added a layer clip and added the other colors on it. Again on another layer I used a red gradient head to hoof (had to say it) and set it on multiply with 50% opacity on it. Same process with the next layer but this time I just did shadings on it with no use of gradient anywhere unfortunately, and then set it on multiply. Then finally for the highlights, I used an orange color and set it on screen. The ribbons where made on separate layers but got the same treatment as the rest. The background is nothing special, just a few slapped gradients and FX that barely takes ten minutes to do.
All in all, I think it’s was a fun quick work I did and got me into a rhythm into producing, let’s hope it will keep on going with it for a few more times.
