(Request) The Bold, The Brash, and The Beautiful by Mattatatta (Request) The Bold, The Brash, and The Beautiful by Mattatatta
Requested by Razalon over on FimFic, who wanted a cover for his Westworld/MLP:FiM fanfic. [link]

Took my time with this, and worked hard on applying what I've learnt through my little sketches and studies. I also tried to stay consistent in terms of face structure and style, and I hope I pulled it off.

Also, I've gone and 'upgraded' the eye style I learnt from Alasou. I don't feel comfortable just making an exact copy of someone else's style, I prefer to tweak it so that it's easier for me to remember and do and more original - even though it's still a borrowed style.

You'll notice that the OCs have some interesting eyes and other facial details, if you know of Westworld, you'll likely guess what the details indicate.

This is probably the last time I'm going to draw FiM-styled wings. I've drawn them a lot through Survivor Shy, and I honestly hate them and their wonky anatomy. I want to start learning more realistic approaches so I can find a better balance between realism and the simplified, cartoony style of these ponies. Plus having more than four feathers gives me more freedom.

I'm not familiar with what "Westworld" is, but I'm gonna guess some manner of cybernetics are the responsible for the curious details of the OCs' eyes.

Westworld is a 70's era thriller about a holiday resort that uses androids to provide the one-of-a-kind experience to guests. Naturally, the robots go haywire and chaos ensues. My dad remembers that film and its sequel and spinoff, I've never seen it myself.

Not presently, I have to dedicate my time to drawing and writing for my own fic. That could take a week or so.
