"Experience" - my first fan-art

Recommended Posts

This came into my head after imagining a cute little scene based on an ongoing roleplay I'm taking part in, in which my character, a human from the real-world, is rescued from a dangerous threat by Starlight and brought to Equestria to be kept safe, turning into a pony in the process. The art I made here, my first fan-art, embodies a few key elements of the RP: a mentor-like relationship with Starlight paired with a sense of wonder as my character discovers the new world around him. In this scene, Starlight is demonstrating a levitation spell, and my character is in awe because, obviously, he's never floated before.

Anyway, for now it's finished - although there are several flaws I do want to fix at some point in the future, including a background that... frankly, I just sorta threw together because I was running out of patience. Originally drawn on paper, then  re-done in digital. Please let me know what you think!

I like to think the name takes multiple meanings:

  • As my first fan-art, it's me gaining experience.
  • Starlight, herself, is experienced - which she's demonstrating here.
  • My character is having the experience of a lifetime.

(Please note that the character in the picture isn't one-and-the-same with my OC, Cherry Pop. Since my OC is a representation of me if I were a pony, it's only fitting that the pony-form of a non-EG human based on me coming to Equestria takes the same form. Despite that, they are not the same characters.)

(Also please visit my friend's Deviantart! She's the one responsible for Cherry Pop's original design! She's taking commissions right now so that she can save up money for Bronycon, so please help her out if you want!)

Awesome drawing! Obviously there's a little room for improvement here and there, but for a first time drawing this is great. Nice work on the manes and tails too, especially Starlight's, that thing isn't easy.

Your character work is excellent. You did a wonderful job with eyes, manes, and tails. I'm not trying to be mean, but the background needs a little work. The trees are a bit 'bunchy'. I'd make the trunks narrower, and add some branches.

Definitely room for improvement. I would've fixed a lot of the issues right away, but I didn't want to burn myself out on it. Thanks!

I plan on it! And thanks. Considering I sorta just... tossed the background together last-minute, I tried to at least give it some value with the blurring and all.

Thanks for the feedback! And yeah, the background isn't very great... I did, admittedly, toss it together last minute. When I eventually get around to redoing it, I plan on doing a much more show-accurate background.
