One of at least three illustrations for my upcoming chapter. I aim to get it out before the new season premieres (On a side-note, I shall remind you that Survivor Shy is alt-universe and occurs before Season Three's finale).
It was a little bit of a drag getting the picture started, but once I got about halfway I started to really enjoy drawing this. I did a lot of details on Fluttershy in particular and spent about four or five hours just trying out little things with her. The past three pictures I've drawn in Survivor Shy have all involved Fluttershy wearing some clothing, and it has been an interesting challenge drawing the outfit and trying to make it crease and fold in a believable fashion. Another nice set of details are centred around her minor injuries and the bandage her hurt wing is fighting against. Drawing minor cuts and bruises is interesting to me. I'm not into gore or going overboard with bodily harm, but I can't deny that there is something about minor injuries that makes a character look more resilient.
I hope you enjoy this, you can even make it your desktop wallpaper (someone close to me complained that I haven't made a wallpaper-sized illustration in a long time).
I still need to write the excerpt, but once I do, I'll add it after the links below - and also add excerpts to the previous images still lacking them. I recommend you dig into the actual fic if you want a full experience, though.
