Radiance by Onyrica Radiance by Onyrica
Because the other day I was sitting there, happily looking at the entries for my "Pony-fy Me" contest and then I realized: I have never made a Pony of my own! D:

So, based on this picture I drew a while back, this is Radiance, a pony with awesome hair. (Seriously, if I didn't feel the compulsive need to go about society looking as ordinary as I possibly can, I would totally do that on my head)

Radiance is a mysterious earth pony with a cutie mark that's perpetually glowing. Her whole body is outlined with a light sheen, making it look like a halo at night.

I'm in the process of thinking up more of a background story for her, so in the meantime, any comments and ideas are welcome!

I also took up the chance to practice with my shitty background-painting skills. Seriously, I'm pure rubbish, but I'm trying, and I should receive a gold star for my effort.

And on this note, have you checked my ongoing MLP contest? Prizes include Premium memberships, points, commissions and MLP mini canvases (limited edition!). You want? Get playing then! :D

Thanks for your comment! I'm very flattered that you like her so much ^^

I made this color palette a while back to show what she looks like unshaded: onyrica.deviantart.com/art/Rad…

Hope that helps! =)

Pretty much everything's been mentioned. I really like the palette and yes, the flora and background are very well done! The overall contrasted lighting is nice and the specular glow.... it wouldn't be the same without it :)

Wow, so much... BLUE! I love her mane, it suits her perfectly.
And your background isn't bad at all, what in Equestria are you talking about?
Ah, I did notice a slight mistake, one of her eyes are white.

Onyrica Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013  Professional General Artist
Oh yeah, you're right. I mean, part of it is meant to be white because of the light hitting that area, but yeah, it is too white. Will fix that in a bit.

Thanks for that and for your lovely comment! ^^

Well, it's good after all xD. I know that background can be an nightmare for an artist. Of course if you are not an 'backgrounder artist'. THen the anatomy and characters are the nightmare xD

Hey hey! (very) Nice picture! :)
I've been wanting to contribute to the fandom, so here's a random idea for you: she get's her power (she has powers, right?) from the stars (sure as hell looks like it) and her cutie mark glows brighter the more they shine... so in a busy town like Canterlot she'd be useless, but in the cloudless nights of Macintosh hills, where usually the moon doesn't reflect that much of the sun's light (probably because of the world's spinning axis and the orbit of the moon around it) she can unleash her full potential (and protect the northern cities from evil....?? so she's some sort of shaman?...)... Oh, and she's a blank flank during daytime (... she reports to Luna, Celestia never heard about her, she got her CM when nightmare moon was vanquished...) :)
I could go on like this.... If you like it, or don't like it but think I can be of some help, or you want a different point of view for your own ideas (... or whatever else reason you can figure), feel free to PM me (or contact me through any method we both understand :p). I'd be more than happy to help creating something!

Wow, that was a lengthy comment there! Thanks for that!

And I do quite like those ideas. I had some of my own, but these seem to combine nicely in with them!

I will be making another picture of her soon, with a more detailed profile, so I might take your comment in stride and take some bits from here and there and blend it with whatever I come up with myself, if you don't mind. =)

Again, thanks for that and if you come up with anything else (either for Radiance or whatever, really! I'm always open for a chat~ xD) just send me a note!

She's great though I almost feel that with that cutie mark she should be a unicorn pony... Something about her seems...Magical.
