Gilda by harwicks-art Gilda by harwicks-art
Gilda is such a fun character design. On top of that, I actually really like her character... Admittedly, it's one that can't be a regular in a show as positive as Friendship is Magic, but I have a fondness for jerks who can cause conflict and make biting comments, as it only tends to endear the sweet characters they pick on to me more. Plus it's always fun seeing the jerk get put in their place. And unlike, say, Diamond Tiara who seems to go out of her way to be pointlessly cruel, Gilda was just really, really, really ill-tempered.

If Trixie can make a comeback, it seems only fair that Gilda show up again in Season 4... maybe competing in the Equestria Games?

If Gilda shows up again, she had better at least apologize to Fluttershy... 
Very nice- the feathers are really detailed.

When I look at Gilda here I am reminded of a rich spoiled teenager on 20s who has never had so much as free time and a lack of strife, thus must make it up herself. It seems odd, but that is often what causes such ill behavior amongst that sort. Being called out on it causes that sudden taken aback sensation that Gilda displayed in the episode she was featured in. Of course the reaction for most people when called on there self inflected poor attitude is often to lash out and cut off those who do reveal that the offender need never have such an attitude and can in fact be sweet and kind. Sadly, at this point in age, most are to afraid of change (or what people will perceive that change in them as) to do much but be alone and cry/rage/yell at the walls about the situation. In most cases these issues get dealt with by the psychology profession or winding up all alone and realizing the only thing causing that isolation is themselves.

Heh...  It's no problem, and of course you may.  Anyone is welcome to use my artwork for non-commercial purposes as long as they don't claim it as their own work.  Sorry for the delay in replying, by the way.

Gilda in the Equestria Games now that sounds awesome. Lets just hope she plays nice. Flash Fire: If not I will be there to catch her in the act. Dragonking17: Dude you do know you are not in the show. Flash Fire: Hey my dimension is linked to the real one. What ever happens there happens in mine, besides me being in it that is, Dragonking17: What ever man.

Your works are getting amazing as each passing portrait goes on. By the way I've managed to fave all of them ;p

Glad to come across someone else who likes Gilda. Everyone seems to hate her just because she stole an apple and dared to yell at Fluttershy, yet they all love Nightmare Moon, who attempted genocide. :I

Now more than ever I would like to try my hand at drawing Gilda someday... she does indeed have a fascinating design! I love her body language and expression in this picture; you captured her essence perfectly.

I like her a lot too. Hope she'll make a comeback in Season 4 but at the same time, I hope she maintains her *spirit*, yanno?

Impressive, her eyes and claws in particular looks great.

I might not like her much, but I have to agree that she certainly is a good character. Her return would surely lead to some interesting events.
mortalshinobi Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2013
nice look here. she almost looks charming. :)

Gilda's the fucking best, and you've got the same kind of interpretation of her I do, mad fucking propz there and mad propz on the art!!! This is perfect!!
Maddog3060 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2013
Hmm, interesting idea. I approve. :thumbsup:
crasydwarf Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2013
She looks so smug and cocky! That's Gilda all right :D
I really liked Gilda. Like you said, she was genuinely bully alike rather then b*tchy like Tiara.

Nicely done, she came out great! 
Dgs-Krieger Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2013
Wow, you make these real fast, don't ya? O.o

Gilda. I have mixed feeling about her. She's a bad person, and that makes me not like it...but I would say it is unfair, as there HAVE to be some evil chracter, isn't it?

But her desing is good indeed ^^
XNedra22 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It would be awesome if she trained enough to appear in the Equestria Games (if they even show it in season four).

Honestly, I just like her design.
