Some Days I Forget To Be Jaded... by harwicks-art Some Days I Forget To Be Jaded... by harwicks-art
...Those days are the best ones.


This one is a pretty quick image done for Equestria Daily's Derpy Day mini-event. My prior attempt at the Pegasus was a version that was both sad and asleep, so I jumped at the chance to do even a simple version of a happy, wide-eyed Derpy.

And an added bonus... drawing a grinning pony just makes you happy. Go figure.

It's the simple moments in life that can be the most memorable. The grin is bordering on sinister, but nice work on depicting a moment of simple joy.

This is just wonderful. It's so light-hearted, whimsical... and it makes you forget for a while that there is any wrong in the world. I love your use of color, and how you managed to keep the piece bright and vibrant, but still successfully portraying an evening scene.

I have to say, besides the main characters (or the "mane six" as they are often called) Derpy is by far my favorite "background" pony. If not for the simple fact that she is the most adorable pony I've seen (besides Fluttershy, of course), but also because of the amount of fan made story behind her character. She went from being a simple editing error to one of the most beloved characters in the entire show. And not just because Hasbro thought she was funny, but because they actually listen to their fan base. They saw how popular she had become and all of the different roles the audience had given her. And instead of getting rid of her, they not only put her in almost every episode, but they gave her a speaking role. Not only that but they also changed her name to Derpy at the fans request. I don't know about many of you, but when I see that kind of dedication to fans, that's when I start believing in people again.

Anyways, I apologize for my mini rant here and would just like to finish off by saying happy very belated Derpy day. I can't wait to celibate it next year.
