UHHHH dat pun!! (sorry)

Yay Derpy! I love this pony a lot and even my boyfriend made me a genius present with a limited toy of her! I love my Derpy figure <3
Also I made a post Derpy, other fanart inspired me to do that hehe! I also used some references for the pose, because I never drew something upside down. It's pretty strange actually, for the face I had to turn in 180°, otherwise it would have been veeery unsymetric @.@
Well this picture was kind of fast when I compare it with my last ones, it was also the first time I tried to paint clouds. They were pretty fun to make ^^ But pretty diffcult if you are not used those different pencils in Sai.
I also tried to make this picture a more "soft" in terms of coloration, because for the happy tone it does. Mh, I also tried out some other colours for the background like pure yellow/orange or more darkish blue and pink tones, but I have decided to upload this version here.

I hope you like it and have a nice day!

OMG FF9 MUSIC!! I am currently replaying this game now <33
I love it so much, I need to draw a colored fanart of Kuja soon.
And thanks again for the compliment! :)

WOW, what an incredible coincidence!! :D I mean not only you know about FF9 while I totally threw that reference without expecting anything... but more than that, you're actually currently replaying it!! Awesome! And an artwork of Kuja would be sick!
FF9 is actually my favorite FF, favorite game, favorite creation ever. Also my first Passion, and what got me to discover J-RPGs. AND my favorite OST! So many favorite tracks... And I really loved the hidden meaning behind the last battle, facing your fear of death, along with all the great messages of the game. So many great memories... Aaah, that Festival of the Hunt in Lindblum..! <3
I need to replay that game soon too. The upcoming PC port will be my chance!! Have you heard of it? Maybe it will really speed up the loading time when a battle starts, also lossless graphics FTW! Have to get it when it's out!
Invidiata Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh yes, I really plan on that somewhen! And i love such coincidences! :D

Mine too, by far, the characters, music and story are superb. Sadly my CD3 hung itself up while the cutscene of Kuja destroying Terra was I am frustrated xD Maybe I should the CD...hopefully it works then again.
I love so many moments in this game, Lindblum was great, but I love exploring Treno, Burmecia, the events near the Iifa tree...etc
Yes, and maybe I will buy it...I need to when my CDs stop working xD But there are also some smartphone ports I heard about...
Uff, the loading times were the only terrible thing, I really hope for a fix too!

(The PC port still hasn't come out... >< I'm so eagerly awaiting it!)

Hmm about that glitch during the cutscene, if you're playing the original CD version on a PSX or a PS1, remember the "CD slot" trick! By opening the CD slot of the console while it is on and the glitch is happening, and then closing it, it will make the game skip the cutscene, and continue with the next event just fine! I don't remember if that tricks works on a PS2 as well, but I say it's worth a try ^.^

Ohh, thank you for the tip! I will try it out since I was so frustrated back then, that I haven't played it further...I know this game anyways xD
Yeah, I hope soon for it too!

Awww, that mare. Yeah. I'm so glad she is still in the show.  She looks so sweet in your work, especially with that smile and that goofy pose.

Wonderful work
