Custom: Nightengale by CigarsCigarettes Custom: Nightengale by CigarsCigarettes
A custom design for Dragon-Lady-NFLD.
She wanted to see a batpony, inspired by black, blue and purple Iris flowers.
And since Irises remind me of Art Nouveau and exotic themes, I decided to mix both.

So here she is, an exotic night beauty, I'm really pleased with the outcome ^^





I'll reply to all you guys later, I'm dead beat today and need to catch up on my sleep ;___;


Nightengale belongs to Dragon-Lady-NFLD

Woooooooooow... O.o She's absolutely stunning! The idea of mixing that color iris on such a regal batpony is unique in end of itself, but the way you drew her mane, tail, and the jewelry? Every little bit compliments her personality, and while her colors make her seem so regal and pretentious- almost like Celestia and Luna's designs- there is a calmer look that reminds the viewer that she's a still a pony. :D I love too how you colored the tufts of fur on her hind legs; it still matches her color scheme, but gives her a more unique fur pattern without it being too much. I have such a problem doing that, and usually end up coloring the front and hind legs the same way. :)

She is absolutely gorgeous, and she's a fine representative of your amazing talent for detail. :heart:

Oh believe me, adding markings to the fur, especially the ones that stand out and don't blend in smoothly, is difficult even for me D: That's why most of my ponies don't have them.
But as with everything, practise is all it takes. And I finished two pieces recently, yet to be uploaded, in which I feel I made another step forward :la: so excited:
I could describe it as...walking in the ocean or even a river, with your feet touching the sand and suddenly reaching a slope. It suddenly gets much deeper but everything is ok since the water doesn't let you drown. I guess that comes closest to the feeling I experienced lately, can't wait when will next such sensation be :la:

XD I'm glad it isn't just be then, 'cause that really is such a pain! Making anything with markings can be a trick, especially when trying to get the colors to fit and blend in such a way that they look natural. :P

I saw those, and you most definitely have improved! In leaps and bounds too! They're gorgeous as always, but you've made a particular leap with getting the poses to look natural and more fluid, with the colors, shading, and glow to match. :D

That's a very good way of putting it, and I actually know what you mean. I call those "pearls of wisdom", and I usually find those pearls after a breakthrough and then everything just clicks into place. >w<

Speaking of Luna I might work on her sometime soon, the Last one was ok but I've got some ideas for her, following the Celestia piece.
