Beach Ball Luna by IIXxQwErTyxXII Beach Ball Luna by IIXxQwErTyxXII
Stupid phone pic doesn't do it justice... I mean it's not beautiful or anything, but it looks much nicer in person/scanned. Crayola colored pencils.

Variation of Ice Cream luna:

If *I* had this kind of art skill, I'd be on a throne somewhere laughing maniacally at all the lesser people far below who were -not- art gods, and beaming in the light of my own ebullient radiance.

ha ha if only it were really like that! Most of the time it's more like me just cringing at everything I draw and wishing I was better!  Anyway I'm glad you like it, I just wish I can scan it, should have the scanned version up in a week or two though.

Haha, no really, I'm super jealous of those with awesome traditional skills. :XD: I've chosen colored pencils as my art starting point so it's always amazing to see what talented people can do with 'em. That's super vibrant for Crayolas! How many layers of color did you use to get that kind of saturation? I know a lot of people don't like student-grade pencils but honestly Crayolas are amazingly great for their price (I use both them and Prismacolors, and frankly there's not a HUGE difference in the result, though the prices are like, super different haha)

Only problem with scanners is it tends to suck the color right out ;o; Ah well.

ha well this was my third time coloring luna so I was able to get a hang of what colors look nice together for her. The vital colors for her body I think are navy blue, blue, and I think sky blue...I'd have to go back and check. One thing you have to do though is make sure you have depth in the coloring. Don't just use one color and press harder for shadows and lighter for highlights. It'll look flat, and people will know instantly! Try using navy for the shadowed areas and sky blue for the highlighted areas or something like that. It won't look too realistic/natural, but you're dealing with limited colors that don't blend well, so you just have to go with it! Using a bunch of layers will help though. Prismacolors on the other hand, should be easier to work with, but I've never used em yet.

Wow, thank you! Definitely shall keep these tips in mind. Yeah, I can definitely see that, I've certainly been trying to blend in multiple colors and vary the direction of the strokes so it doesn't look lazy haha. It's not the best medium for depicting ponies, but it's fun, and the result can often be spectacular... like in this piece.

ha thanks!

And if you want to an art trade still, I can do one now. BUT, I'm a bit limited in time and my scanner is still broken so we'll have to keep it simple. I'll only be able to draw a portrait for you. It'll be around here, quality wise:

yeah I can do that. Can you draw luna for me? She can be doing whatever you want and it doesn't need a background or anything fancy, ha, just keep it simple. It can even be in pencil if you want!
