Mare Genius: Violetta and Zeetha by SynCallio Mare Genius: Violetta and Zeetha by SynCallio
I think Violetta would prefer being a pony to being a Smoke Knight.

I couldn't think of a good cutie mark for Zeetha, so let's assume it's something you'd have to be from Skifander to understand.

Zeetha may complain, but I imagine she'll work out the advantages of being four-legged and having hooves - and wings - soon enough. (Death from above! Oh boy...)

Others in the series:
Gil and Tarvek
Baron Wulfenbach
Othar Tryggvassen
Bangladesh duPree
Da Boyz

More to come!

Done in ArtRage, using chalk and ink.

Yeah I think Violetta would probably be very happy in equestria once she got used to being a pony

Do Von Zinzer! What manner of consternation would he express should he be ponified?

I haven't come up with anything more articulate than a facepalm. Which might be enough. :-D

Pardon me that I have no idea who is who in this picture. I don't know are these from somewhere actually, so I'll just use directions to tell you which pony I'm talking about.

The pony on the right is beautiful! Shape of it is almost perfect, but the hoof closer to watcher's side is a bit short. Now it kind of looks like it's having 3 left legs. The things it carry add nice details on this and it might be one of the reasons why I like it so much. I also love the mane and green outlines on white. Those really work! Also, the eyes. Dark really works. Normally, when I expect yellow on pony's eyes, I automatically assume that it is light color. Shades on it make it look beautiful.

The left pony has it's face done right! I like how you succeeded on the expression. Although, it's mane is a bit awkward. I don't know if it's meant to be, but it looks weird. And then the flank, it looks like it's twisted beyond belief compared to the rest of the body.

All in all, I like this picture! Let me adore that pony on the right for a few moments before I go.

Thank you! I appreciate your thorough criticism.

I can't take credit for everything: the colors, hairstyle, and accessories for Zeetha (the right hand pony) are straight from the the webcomic - though I did choose to make her white. (In the comic, she's quite tan!) This also explains Violetta (on the left), at least in regard to her hair. In the comic, Violetta's hair is short and sticks out all over the place. And I always seem to have trouble getting the flank to look right!
AvianFlare Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013
Yeah, but remember that when it's not perfect, it can be seen that it's made by human. Too perfect art kind of erases it in my opinion. You'll get all you want right when you practice.
And even though I have no drawing on my dA, I do draw (but I have done that only a year), so you don't have to think I'm just someone who thinks he is wise without experience.

Hey, no explanation needed! Your critique is reasonable, so I'm not gonna question your art cred, or whatever. Art is communication, and if it confuses (when it's not meant to confuse), that's something to work on.

Regarding practice: Amen to that! I do calligraphy too, and I tell you what, practice is the only way to get calligraphy to look right.

I swear the new Rule 34 should be: "if it exists it has a pony version"
AvianFlare Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013
Why so? We already have rule 85 which states that.

I love Violetta here, though like your Tarvek, she probably needs more red in her mane and tail. If you're looking for a different cutie mark for Zeetha, I suggest the oval hand grip on her swords.

I was going to ask why you didn't make Violetta purple (as that seems to be a Smoke Knight color) but I figure you're saving that for Maxim whose skin IS purple!

That's... cute. :)

I went with Zeetha's forehead emblem as her cutie mark: [link]
