'Flutterhugs' Charity Drive by UnlicensedBrony 'Flutterhugs' Charity Drive by UnlicensedBrony
In a bid to raise money for charity, Fluttershy offers hugs to the residents of Ponyville for 2 bits a piece. Unsurprisingly, it's very popular :D

My week 65 submission for :iconmlp-atg-alumni:

The prompt this week was 'A Wealthy Pony'. This idea came to me about three days ago and I've been working on it, bit by bit, ever since. I didn't measure how long it took but I'm pretty sure that it has been my biggest piece yet!

I've been working on perspective so when I saw this frame from the Cider episode, I had to grab it for my background :) I did mess up some of the proportions on the ponies, but I like how the background as a whole turned out.

Sorry if my pencil marks were a bit light this time - I did try to adjust the lighting in GIMP to make up for it.

Anyway, enjoy and let me know what you think!

I spot twilight in the line! or is that a different pony?
UnlicensedBrony Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012
Yup, that's Twilight :D Rarity's there too - everyone wants a hug from Fluttershy.

Good on you for not cheaping out on all those trees!
Also, Fluttershy would quickly become the richest duckpony in DuckburgPonyville with this approach.

Yeah I was tempted but I'm glad I didn't - the trees are my favourite part of this piece. Also, damn ducks invading my drawings >: (

Thanks for the comment!

Very good drawing! [Oh no! I got a massive hnnnggg attack in this moment because of this cute Fluttershy looking (all right, she's actually not looking at all) at me! She is sooooooooo adorable :3]

All right, I'm back. I must say it's quality is pretty good! I would even say it's your best work so far! I guess it was a pain to draw all those ponies (so many of them!), but you did it really good. Also the background makes this drawing filled and it really suits the scene.

Oh come on. One of the comments below said just the same thing as I wanted to say - the second pony in the line looks weirdly filly.

I just understand all those ponies standing in this line - I would like a hug from Fluttershy too! <squee>

Everyone would like a hug from Fluttershy! :D

Thank you very much for the comment! It was a pain to draw so many ponies - I definitely prefer drawing smaller scenes where there are just a few ponies in higher detail. The background was a lot of fun though and I'm glad you liked it!

And yes I messed up the proportions/size on some of the ponies at the front - still working on the whole 'perspective and depth' thing.

O MY GOD yes plz

damn drawing all those ponies like that

i will say that the first few ponies in line look more like fillys in comparison to the one being hugged

the perspective starts looking about right around twilight and rarity

ill have my own attempt at drawing perspective up later today
our conversation got me thinking that i know little about drawing figures in perspective
UnlicensedBrony Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012
Hehe, they do look a bit small don't they? I'll keep working on it! Cheers for the comment - I'll look forward to seeing your attempt!
