Nightlight by ShadowCheetah
I'll be doing a poi panel for a MLP con called Running of the Leaves in November. In preparation, I quickly threw together a ponysona.

The only thing that bothers me is the mane and tail. Originally, it was pretty muted and desaturated since I was going for an understated, shy look. After shading, accounting for the poi light, and color balancing, the mane and tail suddenly looked really similar to DJ Pon-3's, which was unintentional and kind of unfortunate.
New Horizons by ShadowCheetah
New Horizons
Because, sometimes, NPCs need some love, too. Tirandra, the place my D&D campaign takes place, is a world of horror, darkness, and despair, with just enough points of light scattered about to give a glimmer of hope and make the world still worth saving. These odd-couple traveling merchants are some of those points of light that the PCs latched onto when the merchants offered a camp, food, and some amusing banter to the weary party in the midst of uncertain, frightening events.

This is an off-camera scene of the ever-dour and sarcastic Jobasha, the endlessly optimistic Skah, and their newly adopted daughter, Kechara, who they and the PCs rescued from a pile of bodies following the Massacre of Westreach. After the merchants traveled with the PCs for several weeks, they finally earned enough money to buy their very first shop. Having now parted ways with the party, they begin their long, dangerous trek south towards the city they wish to settle in. A place where, hopefully, they'll never have to deal with another bandit, goblin ambush, underground mage laboratory full of dark secrets and deadly creatures, or swarm of mind-linked gigantic insects ever again.

I've been trying to keep myself drawing consistently and regularly for a while now. So far so good. Usually, I get 2 or more drawings a week that are of good enough quality that I'm at least willing to embarrass myself by posting them here. Generally, thanks to many of the awesome people I talk to, I have no lack of silly ideas (along with my own occasion original ideas... which really do happen now and then by accident), but when I ran into this challenge, I couldn't help but think it'd be insanely fun to try, and it'd definitely be a cool accomplishment to actually succeed in.

The challenge is pretty simple. You have to draw a picture for each of 100 themes. So far, I've only done one of them ("Introduction"). Of course, since I don't have a scanner, it won't show up till sometime next week, so the main reason I'm posting this is so that everyone knows I'm doing it, and I won't be able to chicken out.

Right now, I'm sort of already stuck on #2 though. I mean, who the heck chooses "Love" as the second one. You do the first and you think, "Hey, that was easy! I'm on a roll. This is fun!" Then WHAM. They hit you with that. How on earth do you describe what love is in a single picture?

Anyway, the following is a list of all 100 themes. I'll check them off as I post them.

Someone else who does parkour! How long you been training? Or doing parkour? Its a passion of mine, I love it.
ShadowCheetah Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2012
Not as long as I'd like! I think I've only been at it for maybe a bit more than a year of dedicated time, which is subtracting out all the times the rest of life got in the way. Even when I don't have time to condition and train, I've at least reached the point where everywhere I go, I'm automatically trying to figure out interesting ways to get to various points around/above/below me and I rarely go around walls anymore, so I guess that's something. ^^

Great to meet another traceur! How long have you been at it?

just though you could use a lift from whatever your going through, I have been there myself.
ShadowCheetah Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2010
Heh, well thanks a lot! That's really kind of you. Which makes me feel a little bad because if you're meaning the "shall not be mourned" thing, it was mostly just a game reference to Portal, which the drawing was based around.

All the same, I really do appreciate it. :)
