Meditation by Alasou Meditation by Alasou
I wanted to do something quick before starting a bigger picture. But somehow I was unable to draw in “my” style. So it takes me more time and for me, I still feel it’s “wrong”. But whatever, I post it anyway.

Very well done, especially considering how aberrant the poses are. x)

I'll try to address why it feels so different:
Those are quite aberrant poses. We almost never see ponies in meditating.
This one uses thicker outlines than your usual. They seem a bit more complex, as compared to simpler accents.
I think you overdid the shadows on them, as compared to your usual. (larger, darker) Though it may be more realistic, it gives the piece an odd depressing undertone. They are also a bit purple, so Fluttershy looks like she's bruised. Well, that's an exaggeration, but the point is that the shadows are bigger than usual, covering 1/3 of her hoof in stead of covering only 1/5 of her hoof.
Fluttershy's body looks a bit too small. Her bright parts of her eye are less blurred than you usually do.
The background makes everything but RD blend into the background a bit.

Of course, those are all minute details, which may not even be why it feels different.

This was a great piece, as usual. It would have a greater impact if the background didn't make Fluttershy blend in. Currently, the contrast feels off.
But again, it was well done, and those are all nitpicky details.
What do you think?

She certainly pulled off the "relax" part of the operation.

I would say RD is a little too relaxed. LOL

This fits perfectly for my TMNT MLP crossover. Leo taught Fluttershy how to meditate, and she found it very relaxing. But when she tried to teach it to Rainbow, like Raph would, she fell asleep. ;p

Lol, figures Dash would just use it as nap time. :D
GeekWithClip-Ons Featured By Owner May 28, 2013

Great drawing!

Most likely what would really happen.

Rainbow Dash has achieved the final level of meditation: knowing that it's just better to catch up on your sleep. ;)
Aurora-Chiaro Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Come on Dashie, it would be good for you too ;p
secondstomarz Featured By Owner May 28, 2013
Haha RD is drooling.

What do you mean, unable to draw in your style?
Alasou Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Student Digital Artist
The shape, mostly, didn't feel right for what I usually do. I've spend at least one hour on it trying to figure why.
Yttryn Featured By Owner May 28, 2013
Hmm, almost sounds like an incoming artistic block. That'd be bad.
In your defence, though, the poses you chose here seem rather unusual. I don't think you drew something similar before. And they actually turned out nicely, especially on RD's head.
But to be honest, both their right hind legs still seem a little strange compared to the left one.
Fluttershy's looks slightly smaller and thinner.
As for Rainbow's... It's the opposite here. It appears bigger than her left hind leg and I can't understand how it's angled. I can't quite imagine the part of her body that is hidden by her front leg. The left side of her body looks fine, though.
Alasou Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Student Digital Artist
It's not an art block. It's a brain block. I can't think about anything, find idea and have mental image. I'm sick and my head feel like being crushed by a truck. I'm in a fog and that's why I have trouble. I think. But I can do line and stuff.
Yttryn Featured By Owner May 28, 2013
Well, that doesn't sound any less bad... Maybe you could practice simple things for the time being until you feel better. To avoid possibly serious frustration.
Alasou Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Student Digital Artist
But I have thing to draw. Like the blood donation one. But you're right.

Looks good, seems poor RD fell asleep :D
