Fausticorn Sketching by empty-10 Fausticorn Sketching by empty-10
My final Bronycon print is completed! It is Fausticorn, Lauren Faust's pony avatar, except decidedly less stressed than in Lauren's own original sketch. Instead, here she is, burning the midnight oil, hard at work with sketches. Around her are towering piles of sketches, with some choice characters hanging out of the stacks: the mane 6, Derpy, and the characters of the voice actors that will be at Bronycon. I think Lauren is the type to surround herself with her work and stay up late to do it.

The making of this piece: Fausticorn is referenced from her original sketch and a vector you can find on dA, but I decided to reference the closed wings loosely off of swans. The sketches around Fausticorn are heavily referenced from Lauren's original sketches. Big Mac isn't too far off from Lauren's sketch you can find online. The Celestia sketch is a mash-up of the three sketches I could find and the show style. Steven Magnet is referenced from a screencap. Discord and Spike I just made up based on references. The mane 6 and Derpy are adapted from my own drawings, but I did my best to change them into a Faust style. It was an interesting experiment, she actually draws things to be quite flat and not work in a three-dimensional environment, which is the opposite of what I try to do with all my pony pictures, so there were some clashes and I had to mess with some things to make it work.

I spent a few hours each day over five days to do this piece. There are 64 layers.

This is one of five prints I will have available at Bronycon!

Not sure about that oil-based lamp next to all that paper. All it would take is that sketch of Discord to fall down and land on top of it.

My family and I are planning a My Little Pony and Thomas and Friends Gala. We already meet and got acquainted with Britt Alcroftt (the creator of Thomas and Friends). Now we need to Meet Lauren Faust. I Need some Help to get a hold of her and tell her about the gala. We also want to invite the Cast and Crew of both shows as well including all of the Thomas the Tank Engine Narrators ( Ringo Starr, Michel Angelis, Alec Baldwin, Michael Brandon, Pierce Brosnan, and the current Mark Moraghan) and the Mane Four of My Little Pony (Tabatha ST Germain, Ashleigh Ball, Andria Libman, and Tara Strong).

I admit I kinda laughed,
Fausticorn seems to have barricaded herself in,
like all that she does is sketch ponies day and night.

This SUPREMELY mystify me, so totally completely...

I still can't see ANY of your picture on your account ? (just see a grey square with DA's logo)
You're the -only- one, on the *entire* website of DA, which it does this to me..? (and DA's help center is clueless. They just say ''Oh, you have an anti-pub plugin. That's the reason''... yeah... but it doesn't do that on ANY other people's account !?)
