So... Yesterday, I rewatched The Best Gift Ever (because I had enjoyed it so much), and I spotted something that I completely missed during the first go-around, something that totally blew my freakin' mind. It was a quick shot during the "One More Day" montage. It was so quick that you could easily miss it. (Obviously, since I did the first time.) Perhaps I'm the only one who didn't catch this, in which case I'll look the fool. Fillies and gentlecolts, set your faces to stunned: BOOM! Big reveal! Marble likes Big Mac! WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?! So, the whole freakin' fandom shipped MarbleMac after they met in Hearthbreakers on account of how adorable they were around each other, but y'know, it was just blushing because they were both so shy. There was no solid canon evidence that it was anything more than just a one-off gag....until now. So....Marble likes Big Mac, and now she's heartbroken that he's taken! Wow. Mind blown. And that poor thing! I feel so sorry for her. She should have made a move when she had the chance. Somepony needs to tell her that it's not too late. It's not like Big Mac and Sugar Belle are married. And between you and me, I think Sugar Belle is an airhead. She's weird and ditzy and I don't like her. Frankly, I wish Big Mac would tell that bimbo to take a hike and start dating Marble instead. So, this is just another little teaser that makes me love the lesser-known Pie sisters all the more. I really like Marble and Limestone, and I wish we could see more of them. I find them to be two of the most intriguing characters on the show, probably because I relate so strongly to them. We know that both of them are lonely, and wish they had coltfriends. Limestone said as much when she adamantly insisted she wasn't jealous of Maud's new coltfriend, despite that fact that nopony so much as even implied that Lime was jealous. And now we know that Marble's heart is aching. I'd absolutely love to learn more about these two . One of my very top S9 wishlist items is a Marble and Limestone spotlight, but I seriously doubt it will happen. We sure as Tartarus don't need any new characters for S9. We have enough! What we need is deep dives and development of great existing characters, like these two. Pinkie left the rock farm at a pretty young age. She knew from when she was a filly that rocks weren't her destiny. Maud stayed on the farm for awhile longer, but eventually left as well to pursue her own [rock related] life. But Marble and Lime never left, and now they're quite lonely. My headcanon is that they're extremely close, inseparable, though each wishes she had more of a life. I imagine them feeling jealous of Pinkie and Maud for moving away and making something of themselves. I imagine them feeling somewhat trapped and frustrated. I feel so sorry for both of these beautiful mares, as they seem like the only characters who aren't happy with their lives. Limestone is perpetually angry, but I imagine her actually being a very warm pony who is just misunderstood. She doesn't exude a cheerful demeanor like Pinkie, so ponies push her away, which makes her angry, which makes ponies push her away more. (I see a lot of myself in Lime, here.) Every time we see Marble, no matter where she is, she looks sad. Oh, we've seen a brief smile from her now and then, usually a "Mm hmm" in response to something Pinkie said, but she never seems like she's truly happy. She had a sad look on her face from the moment she arrived at Sweet Apple Acres, long before she saw Big Mac with Sugar Bimbo. Perhaps Marble suffers from depression, too. (I see a lot of myself in Marble, too.) Both of them seem unhappy to me. Imagine both of them leaning on each other for support, holding each other together. They'd be completely lost without each other. I imagine them having no friends, nopony but each other (not counting their other sisters, when they visit). I imagine Limestone being the "strong" one, the rock that sensitive Marble leans on. Despite her rough exterior, I picture Limestone being extremely fond of her baby sister, and doing anything to protect her. Limestone wants nothing more than to see Marble happy, but doesn't know how to help her. Marble's depression makes it more difficult for her to get through life, and she needs more help, and relies on Lime a lot, and Marble sees the emotional toll that takes on her sister. She wishes she could help, too. I picture countless hours and many untold nights of long talks, long hugs, and shed tears. I imagine many times that Marble knocked on Lime's door late at night and woke her up just because she needed a hug and a shoulder to cry on. Limestone, being the rock that she is, never minded, and just held her baby sister until she was cried out. Both wish they could find happiness... for each other, and for themselves. These are just my wacky headcanons, though. I wish they'd do a deep-dive into the relationship of these two. I want a S9 episode that revolves around them, preferably without sight nor sound of the mane 7. Perhaps just a brief appearance by Maud and Pinkie, and that'd be it. And it would simply be called Sisters. How about y'all? What are your headcanons about the lonely Pie sisters? Anything you want to say about them--just throw it in here!
It's been a month since I've started doing a daily drawing. And Oh Boy, it's been a blast. I didn't liked it at first, but little by little I think I became better... Maybe. It all started with this "thing" which I didn't take too seriously, but it was my first pony in a while. Close to 5 years without even touching a pen to draw. It hurted. Then I did this. I like this style better. It reminds me about those old joke magazines like MAD. I tried to replicate the last drawing's style, but didn't work. Her face is derpy without the cute. I actually like this Octavia, but i have to admit, the lightning doesn't make sense. It's a problem I'm struggle with even today, but sooner or later I'll overcome such flaws. Aaand, here I began to make those horrible intrusive text highlights. They take a lot of space and later when it's not 22 days anymore, it became useless. With this one I took a little risk. I like the colors, but they're oversaturated. Here's when I tried to do a background that wasn't just clouds or two colors. I didn't detailed that much, but I liked it when I did it. Today, not so much, but I kinda have respect to it.Was the first time that I tried to do a good shading... "good" xD well, it's not that bad. With this one, I tried an old, OLD comic book style which I didn't know how to do. It turned out decent, but it's nothing compared with other styles. I kinda like it even today though. This Luna brings me issues. I liked the concept, but the final results are... Special. The perspective is so messy, oh goodness. This I don't like. Not at all. Moving on! This was the first one that I really liked how it turned out. I like the highlights, the background is okay, and the lineart is charming. It was the best I did since the beginning imo. Besides, Dashie with Tank is an idea that I'd love to do more often. This was the time that I've started to do certain things, like the mane style, the shadows and highlights, and more "dynamic" poses. They're still stiffy, but here I noticed that I was improving after a long time. ... And I watch this one, and I laugh. Oh god, look at the expression, the proportions, the background! I thought it was ok, but now I realize that it wasn't that good as I expected xD It's not terrible, and it's better than the others, but still, it's not as good as the next ones, thankfully. That's a good sign. I like to mess with the ways of doing the magic effect. This one is... weird. The style is weird, the expressions are weird, and even the shading is. I kinda, sorta, maybe like it, but I feel ashamed every time I look at it well, it was more than 2 weeks ago. I think I've improved. Maybe. Now, this is one of my personal favourites. This is when I really liked how it was turning out, and I can't find any major flaws besides Luna's face. But even still, I think it's funny and doesn't ruin the whole image. Here's when my shading started to look good. I mess up sometimes, but I've learned my lesson since the Crusaders one. Oh geez... Welp, this was the image when all my mane styles started to be like silk... Not really, but I love Celestia's. And this one... I messed up with the shading in a couple of ponys, specially in Rarity, but I LOVE the feeling I receive from it. It reminds me about those promotional posters from movie theaters. And I love how Sunset, Pinkie, Starlight and Twilight look. With this one I tried to do a "good" background, but... Well, it's not that bad, but the pony proportions are messy, and the color is oversaturated again. I try to improve that even today. Keep it light and smooth, Eifie. Don't over do it. This one was simple. Notice the sense of movement and the way the ponys point to the next part of the text like they're dancing. They point to each other in a way, and I think it's fun. I really like to do Pinkie's mane, it's so messy and weird Even when I like the Fluttercord idea, I don't really like this one that much. The background is weird, and I could do the characters better. even though, I like the feeling it emanates. what I enjoy the most are Discord's wings. This one was fun to do. I love the Crusaders, and I enjoy doing them whenever I can. Even if the "18 days" image was just... Ugh. It's my least favourite. But this one redeemes that, right? (Redeemes? That's how you spell it? English is not my mother language, so don't mind me D: ). Oh my. The Apple-Pie family is tricky, but certainly fun. My thing is doing portrait drawings, and the style is weird but charming to me, haha! (Marble's mane is my favourite. Maud's expression is priceless.). And this one right there is special. Why? It was the first one that I send to Equestria Daily. And it was published. I won't lie to you, I was happy the rest of the day after I noticed that. Then Sethisto started to notice my drawings, and ever since many more of them were published on the page. I'm truly glad of that. I'm willing to do so much more because I have a little more feedback. The brony community is the best. Oh, and another one following the trend of the "13 days" one. Notice how now they're more balanced. Now is Twilight who has her eyes open, and the rest has them closed. She really is the princess of friendship, and I'd love to do more tributes about this fact. Kinda reminds me about the PPG. I think this one is my favourite. The shading is the best 've done in my opinion, and the message is fun. Celestia is used to be captured, so we don't have to worry. Some magical thing will save the day at the end of the afternoon. Should i say i really like the manes? This has a special place in my heart. Ember looks good, and the lightning is divine. (Sounds bad when it's my own drawing. I'm sorry! ) This one is a close second because the colors. This one is charming, and it's okay, but not of my favourites. I think I messed un a bit with the background, and the proportions are a little bit off. And Oh MY, what happenned to Sunburst's beard? That's not right! Besides Starlight's magic is light blue. Whoops. (Oh, you noticed the tea cup? Trixie approves. And the prediction came true, Spike and her shared a moment in the season premiere!). This was fun to do, but MY GOODNESS it take a lot of time, and it isn't even that great. The shading could be better, but that happens when you're on a schedule and try to do so many characters. Don't do that, people! Outside that, it's fun to watch and the illustration looks okay. This was the last one. Was the day before the season premiere, and I couldn't be happier. Notice how I get rid of the intrusive text since the "7 days left" one. I'm so glad about it. The countdown remains in the title, not in the image. And here's some others before and after the episode. The "meme" ones are too fun. I'll do some more this week. The title of this one is "Hiatus was just a nightmare, everypony!". It was published before the episodes aired. Those ones, you know. I hope you like watching them as I love doing them! Twitter! Follow me on dA for more!
