Emulation
---

Lyra in a Pony Emulation of Kristoffer Guldager Kongshaug’s “The Androgynous Human” - [link]

I'm really proud of this one :la:
It came out pretty much exactly the way I wanted.
~5 or so hours for this one

WOW!
Paper the Unicorn wrote a little piece to go along with my art o.o [link]
So cool! I love it :D

EDIT:
Haha everyone keeps saying it looks 3D, I think I'll take that as a complement.
It is probably the soft shading and the reflections in the BG and on the floor.

This was 99% Paint Tool SAI, just a little Photoshop CS5 for color adjustment and post-processing :dummy:

Things were already pretty "out there" and the folks in the stream suggested it.

She didn't know what she was doing.
Seriously. In all of her lyre-plucking, string-tuning and parkbench-sitting days she had no idea what the hell was going on.
Mainly because she felt trapped. Imprisoned in this tiny world with no possibilities of getting out. Taunted and bullied because of her differences, her beliefs. Controlled because of her talent, belittled because of her desires.
Suddenly, she felt very much like a puppet. Hooves encased in blackest material of negative emotions. Shapely fingers of 'hands' that now belonged to her, almost in an ironic, mocking way.
Her hind hooves? Cemented to the floor. As if she couldn't move, or was paralysed. Didn't have the will, or the permission, or the freedom to move. Marionette feet.
Head, viciously reared back. Whether in fury, depression or simple acceptance of the dimmed future. Strings, pulling her down. Attached to unwanted places. Vice gripped onto her face. Mannequin head.
And her bleak surroundings. Day in, day out. Black, white and shades of grey. No difference. No change.
Same environment for her past, present and future self.
Puppet show.
She despised that word now. Puppet.
Because that was what she was, and will ever be.

Lyra is perfect for this role. I'll admit I had to look up the definition of Androgynous before I really got it though XD

Haha I was initially Pinkamina in the sketch stage, just because her straight hair looked so good at that angle.
Here, check it out... [link]

But after thinking about it, Lyra was just too perfect for it.

Oh damn that is so cool :D First off you nailed the emulation perfectly. And it's so fitting for Lyra. I can't explain why but the way you shaded her is just so freakin good to me. Great work! :)

./////////. Thank you so much, man!
The whole thing was just so fun from start to finish.

Her pose is pretty much impossible and I was trying forever to figure out how to bend the legs.
And then I thought, "This is MLP, what am I doing? They're almost like rubber." And I simply bent them to work.

Human pose, use Lyra! xD
It actually was going to be Pinkamina in the beginning, because of how good her hair looks at that angle.
See? [link]

I'd say the face needs a little fixing
the cheek looks fat = P

other than that it's awesome, hell, it even looks 3D XD

Glad I'm not the only person who thought that.
When I first saw the thumbnail I thought it was 3D.

:iconninthsphere:
ninthsphere Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Haha it must be the reflections on the cement and the soft background.
Combined with the non vibrant Lyra colors it does sort of look 3D

indeed, it's a really cool effect
as for the cheek thing, I suggest you altering that shadow, looks very rounded = P
