Junebug Ironclad by harwicks-art Junebug Ironclad by harwicks-art
Just a quick image this time... Equestria Daily's artistic wargames seemed like fun, so I whipped up an armored pony to participate. I went with Junebug, because I think it's an unwritten rule that every fan should champion their own obscure pony who has had extremely limited screen time.

As always, if you're looking to ask me for permission to use this artwork in a non-commercial way, feel free and make something awesome with it, but know that I neither created nor own the characters. And, of course, please don't take credit for my work. It's just not a nice thing to do.

I love the design of the armor in this piece. I also admire your choice in background characters. It's refreshing to see someone draw one that isn't already immensely popular. Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course, it's just nice to see some of the others as well from time to time. As always, very well done.

This looks like something straight out of my fan fic, I love it! I have Junebug as a main character, and she's slowly building up some confidence and determination in an Equestria that's falling to pieces. Must..favorite...now.

This is gorgeous. Pretty much loving how everything is painted, and that misty effect really adds to the feel of the painting. It really, really reminds me of Dark Souls, and that's always great.

Ah, Harwick, I was hoping that you enter the ATG as well. While the themes usually quite silly there and had no actual scheduled and developed plan for artist's improvements behind it - it still manages to force artists to produce a lot of awesome art, like this.

Look forward to see the next one from you!

As much as I'd enjoy it, I doubt I'll be able to participate in many of the assignments. Other deadlines are pressing, and I have to steal time to get even this one done. Still, I'll be following the challenge with interest, and I always enjoy seeing what fans come up with.

It's a comparatively simple image... one character in a basic pose, no real background, not even any facial expression... so I was able to sketch it up quickly last night following working hours and then spend the evening coloring it. Normally, I would take the time to make sure I liked the proportions and such first, and then even when it hit this stage I'd set it aside and come back to it fresh some other day before ever thinking it was "done", but the spirit of the challenge was to get it out the door that night.

I had a revised version that tweaked some of the larger things that bother me about it, but I can't seem to get Deviant Art to update the image, at least for me (even the download is still the original.) I was able to update other works fairly easily, so I don't know what the deal is with this one. The changes aren't major... some color corrections, a bit of clean up while I was at it... so it's not a huge deal.

Hmmmm... okay, it did update finally. Looks a little garish. Ah well... she's a yellow-green pony with orange mane and tail in heavy armor with freshly picked flowers. Some clashing is to be expected, I suppose.

Anyway, thanks for the kind words!

Honestly, I can't tell without the original copy. But I do know the feeling of spending sleepless nights mulling over how a certain piece of uploaded work could have been done better this way or that.

What really struck me most is how you managed to nail how your light interacts with materiel and such. Especially with the armour; metal is a tricky thing with reflections and whatnot. Shading is impeccable as well.

And thus, the war was ending, and our brave pony, Junebug is the first to return to her hometown. As she moves across the scarred lands, she leaves behind the seeds from her flower basket, to show her fellow warriors the way back to their home, Ponyville. By the time the troops return, they will see the overflowing garden of flowers the Mare grew to welcome back her friends and comrades.

Very nicely done. AND it's Junebug! yay!

I was dumb enough to not save my submission in progress so when my computer shut down mid creation all I had to show for an hour of work was my pencil sketch lol. No submission for me today.
