well.. i DID see a pony pattern at the start (Alicorn-Earth-Pegasus-Unicorn>reapeat)..but since you put Roseluck instead of..ohh.. letsay a alicorn like Queen Chrysalis, I kinda figured it was just in my head! What kind of 'step-up' do you plan on making from this?
That'd be it. I'm leaving the Changelings out, since technically they aren't ponies. Yes, they're modeled after ponies, kind of like how Twi'leks are modeled after humans, but they're different creatures entirely. I didn't figure it'd be appropriate to include a non-pony in a pony-a-day project (sorry, Discord). I may get around to drawing Chrysalis someday, but only after I figure out a way to do something that hasn't been done a million times already.
As for the step-up... I took a lot more time on this sketch than I did on the ones before it, and I like the result. So from here until the end of the project, I'm going to spend a little extra time on each sketch and see how they turn out.
