What happens now? by jarwall What happens now? by jarwall
Choices, choices.

For the NATG Day 10 - draw a pony making a choice/waffling.

Once again, this is a bit dark - this plays on common headcanon that everyone's favorite chicken is an orphan. It's less than that day, though - I don't do Scootabuse.

Done in Photoshop CS4 and SAI 1.1 from a pencil-and-paper outline, with a mouse. (._.)

EDIT: Further darkened the shadows, modified the eyeshine and gave the hair rougher edges. The original was a bit flat.

EDIT: Major changes this time round. Changed perspective (fixes the issue with awkward table angle), changed eye direction, tilted Scoots' head, added wall glow, hoof and lip bite.
Done with the help of my local brony group, a million thanks to them all :)

EDIT: Modified shading on face and hoof. Largely inconsequential.

UPDATE (in lieu of the Scoots episode that aired December 8): Welp, guess this piece is more or less irrelevant now. Scootaorphan headcanon still stands, but she's got an adoptive family now, AND she has some flying ability.

Well, crap.

Flight. She has a family and they treat her poorly.

I think in the end learning to fly would be more beneficial. She could go afterwards searching heaven and earth for her parents, while she would be stuck on the ground even if she knew whom her parents were. It could be a big problem if she doesn't like what she finds in a white book.

Good picture!

Get the birth records, find your Pegasus parents, have them teach you to fly.
