My Little Cosplay: Raven Sparkle by batangbatugan My Little Cosplay: Raven Sparkle by batangbatugan

Something new, and something different! Full view please!

There's a nice backstory to this little piece- :iconinvader-hime: an oh-so generous and awesome friend got :iconwarse-no-miko: to fly halfway around the world, visit Disneyland for the first time, attend Megacon for the very first time, and meet Wil Wheaton and Tara Strong for the very first time. BEST. WEEKEND. EVER.

And being an opportunistic boyfriend and a big fan of Tara Strong, I hastily made this piece so that Addy can have Tara Strong sign it. This is actually my very first attempt at Pony fan art, and I'm glad it tuned out pretty OK. I tried two things: Kept it as close to the animation model while putting some dynamic touches, and make it look like she's actually cosplaying as Raven from Teen Titans. I've seen this drawn by lots of artists before but it's always with her hood on and her face in shadow. Here I tried to make her hair styled like Raven (she kept her highlights tho) and the costume even allows her cutie mark to be visible. :XD:

This was a fun piece, maybe I'll do another one soon=D

Can I use this as a reference? I was planning on photoshopping it (crediting you), but you probably wouldn't want me doing that since you said it was fanart. Besides, I don't have a really-good-but-easy-to-use photo editor at the moment and I have no idea how to transfer frames from a Flipnote editor to a photo editor. So in other words, it's easier for me to just draw it on paper than it is to edit it. Plus, Raven would almost never be this happy. I was planning (just a thought for now) on making a mini-series about them. JUST SO YOU KNOW, THIS IS NOT OFFICIAL. PLEASE DON'T STEAL MY IDEA. Also, do you want me to draw the other ones? I can't get the pony's eyes right without looking at something first. It's fine if you don't, but this is EXTREMELY good.

Sorry for the late reply, but yes, if you want to use this for reference, ygo right ahead. =) But I would like to request that you do not photoshop this as it's a piece I made specifically for Tara Strong and not only for myself.

I really have a terrible photoshop program, and plus, I have five different pictures I'm trying to do at the moment. I'm still trying to figure out how to draw the G4 ponies by hand, and it's really difficult. I can't afford Photoshop, and have no idea how to use Gimp. If I get done, I'll give you credit as a reference ok?

I would love to go to San Diego Comic-Con 2014 to see Tara Strong. She's very lovely. I love both Raven and Twilight Sparkle.

I also notice that Maud Pie share almost everything belongs to Raven. She speaks in gloom, her mane is purple (Except Raven's strong purple while Maud's dull purple) and more importantly, her skin is grey. She may have a different voice actor but she does easily reminds me of Raven, the hairstyle being straight still pretty much looks like Raven's. :lol:
