Commission for :iconjesymphony:

Sunstar Rose is badass and goes on badass adventures, so why not put her in a setting as mysterious and lovey as she is? ;)

Also, her cutie mark, which I didn't end up using, but here it is anyway :> [link]

As always, Will move to scraps later (where commissions go)

Bah, this just seem liek Trixie to me ;P
A very nicely done piece - the background seems simple at first glance, but to a better eye one can see work put into it and the character design is truly amazing. Kudos.

I can see how they are similar, might be the colors. ;)

GSHgunner Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012
lol not just the colours, but the hat and cape look similar too, not to mention she is also a unicorn, when I first saw her I instantly thought she was Trixie and to be honest, I still do XD

adailey Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Professional Filmographer
I think most wizard/ high magic type unicorns wear the hat and cape? (at least this is what I gather from the Halloween episode where Twilight dresses up) no idea though. I think her OC still is different enough though, I didn't really think about Trixie when I saw her, maybe because the hair and cape color, etc., was different enough for me, but I can see some similarities now XD

GSHgunner Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012
I think only a named new where capes and hats in the show, Trixie and Star Swirl are ones that I know who do, but hay, I am not against anyone's OC having them, I was just pointing out that that particular OC reminded me of The Great and Powerful Trixie! :3

Beautiful!! :D I love your mane work and the background especially. May I ask how you did the reflection? Did you paint it out yourself or did you use another method?
The whole thing looks great. c: I wish I could commission you. :XD:

:iconadailey:
adailey Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Professional Filmographer
Awww, thank you so much :D!

I simply duplicated the flattened pony layer, flipped it upside down and lowered the layer opacity. Then, I erased a little of the upper half to give it the effect of vanishing a little, and then used the smudge tool to move the colors around the ripples. :>

:iconbone-bone:
Bone-Bone Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012
No problem!! :D

Ohh, I see. I would have thought that to be a good method :D Turns out it is. I would have preferred challenging myself with a reflection though, but that's just me |D I mean, painting a reflection would be hard. That's why I don't make anything dealing with reflection. Ha! But thanks for the tip on that. c:

Actually speechless. This is gorgeous and perfect and ugughruh. I love all the little details, like the clasp on her cape and the stitching on the saddlebag. The way you drew her mane and tail is beautiful and thank you so much for this beautiful piece of artwork! <3

AND THE BACKGROUND I LOVE IT. The shooting star, the water she's running across it's beautiful! It's like she's at the edge of a universe somewhere, chasing down something before it's too late and whoops there goes my imagination into the ether.

YAY! :D I'm so glad you love it ;-; Feel free to upload it to your own gallery, use it in RP's, etc. :>

Oh! And I'm not sure if you saw it, but I included a link to your cutie mark I made (just didn't use since her cape ended up covering most of her flank). In the description ;)
