A Thousand Roses by FallenZephyr A Thousand Roses by FallenZephyr

"A Thousand Roses" is now available as an art print on Society6!


30 Day MLP Challenge, Day 23: Roseluck

This is a challenge I designed for myself in which over the next 30 days (hopefully) I'll be drawing one random character from MLP:FiM each day.

Important notice: Seeing as I clearly can't keep up the pace with one drawing a day for this challenge, it's not really considered a 30 day challenge anymore XD However, I will continue to contribute to the "challenge" until I reach the 30th drawing, but at my own pace. Life is busy :I

Ok, so there aren't REALLY a thousand roses in this piece, but I liked the sound of "a thousand" more than "a hundred." I love how this turned out, even if drawing all the roses and greenery was very time consuming. Roses are one of the most difficult flowers (for me) to draw and colour... so many petals and folds!

I like Roseluck's colour palette; it's very pretty and appealing to the eye. You would think there would be more fanart of Roseluck out there, but surprisingly there isn't!

I actually didn't know that pony named Rose Luck existed! this looks amazing, to say the least.

Thank you!

Yeah, there's actually a lot of canon background ponies with canon names, but you have to go looking on wiki sites or fan sites to find out what they are! A lot of names are determined simply from toys that Hasbro makes; some toy designs end up being on the actual show so that's why some of them have official names and some don't!

So THAT'S how so many original names are made!! I was curious about that!
Daww, I really love this one :aww:.

Thank you c:

It's quite an old deviation (from last November?), but I figured some of my newer watchers would like to see this. I had to update it because I added an option to buy prints for it.
I think this is really pretty! I'm impressed by all the flowers. Great work. >w<

So the pony's what would happen if Kurama beded a My Little Pony character? (sorry for the mental image.)
FallenZephyr Jan 31, 2013  Student General Artist
Err, not quite sure who Kurama is (though I'm thinking it's the Kyuubi) but that would be incredibly odd.

Kurama IS another name for Kyuubi but I was talking about the guy in Yu Yu Hakusho.
