Crystal Twilight by secret-pony Crystal Twilight by secret-pony
Lalala I have no idea what I'm doing :iconderpy-hooves:

Experimenting with a lot of different new things at the same time
Lineless, paper textures, lighting, brush textures, soft shading, backgrounds, glow effects... @.@
I didn't do her fancy crystal mane, cause I wanted to draw her like this... mane flowing freely
Before you ask, and I know you're going to: I don't know if I'll do the rest of the mane 6, or any canon pony at all. (or any other pony as well)

Tools: Wacom bamboo + Sai
MLP (c) Hasbro
Art (c) me
Crystal-ish texture from [link]

:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:

To share on Tumblr, please reblog from my page. Thx.

Edit: Added cutiemarks and fixed translucency
Edit 2: To wallpaper makers: I have a version with a transparent background. Ask me about it. ;)

I wasn't gonna ask if you'd be doing other ponies ;P
Seems most appropriate for Twilight, her being the magic user and all... I like the concept and all, but her back legs give me a weird impression ^^'
Overall - nice work.

I'm not really fan of crystal ponies but... you really did a great job there, I'm amazed! :)

And if that's alright to ask, how long did it take you to draw it? ^^;
