Pinkie Picasso - Art Series #1 by janeesper Pinkie Picasso - Art Series #1 by janeesper
Commission for a friend's young daughter. Her favorite character in the show is our bestest friend Pinkie Pie, and she wants to be an artists when she grows up. So, I cast around in my head for an interesting way to connect the two. Pinkie and Cubism just makes sense.

EDIT: It had been bothering me for a while that Pinkie was not as pink as she ought to be. I thought that it was my monitor (or I was going blind), but it turns out that my original reference was desaturated slightly. So, I went in and corrected that, brought up the overall brightness a tad to compensate and fixed some problem areas while I was at it. I hope you find the changes worth your while.

An interesting note: while playing with the saturation, I discovered that Fluttershy's main two colors share the exact same value level (which is funny for the color theorists out there). Of course, the pony with the highest contrast is the luminous Rarity.

Painted in Photoshop.
Approximate time: 18 hours

I once studied the color schemes of the ponies, and wrote a paper for it fav.me/d64fmpj

For example, Fluttershy's colors are:

BodyPart_Hue_Saturation_Value

Body 55 31 99 #FDF6AF 
Hair 335 25 95 #F3B6CF 
CM 1 335 25 95 #F3B6CF 
CM 2 179 48 78 #68C8C6 
Eye Highlight 1 177 27 85 #9ED8D5 
Eye Highlight 2 179 48 78 #68C8C6 
Eye Gradient 1 178 100 68 #00ADA8 
Eye Gradient 2 178 96 33 #035350

It makes sense that Pinkie wouldn't see the world in the same way as everypony else, so her visual art would necessarily reflect a... skewed perspective.
