Remedy to Gravity MLP Zecora by blix-it Remedy to Gravity MLP Zecora by blix-it
We Love Fine had a shirt design contest, ponies vs villains, and I decided to draw my FAVORITE. <3 (Please vote for my shirt design by logging in to We Love Fine and giving it a 5 if you feel my entry deserves it? Or if you love Zecora as much as I do? X3)

There are sketches of this on tumblr + the ink drawing of smoke and fire.

I loved the episode where Rainbow Dash was competing for best flyer and Rarity had those ridiculous butterfly wings. <3 It prompted day dream fanfiction of Zecora with dragon wings, brewed from a potion. The better option is to not use magic, but when it's necessary, IT SHOULD BE AWESOME. <3 Zecora makes magic awesome.

I know everyone expects watercolor painting out of me, but I actually also like digital art??? XD This was designed with shirt printing in mind, so digital was the better choice. The method for creating this piece was interesting! Zecora is inked and colored digitally, but the smoke and scales and fire were done with brush and ink on cold press watercolor paper, then in photoshop I took that ink drawing, lifted the texture of ink drawing off paper, and made colored digital lines from that.

Probably too much thought went into the ink background. Zecora's magic is based in nature. The inked background has the four elements, fire, earth, water, air, represented in its texture (no metal element, I didn't think metal was representative of Zecora's magic.)

And that is heart's desire herb in the flames. I want to imagine it being a super powerful catch all sort of herb, reacting to what a pony most wants. So dangerous! But Zecora can use it well and temper it with other herbs.

More Ponies!:

I would like to print that on a t-shirt (not to sell it, just for me to wear), is that ok for you?

I both desperately crave and dread an episode or comic where Zecora's bacstory is embellished. I doubt we'd get anything anywhere near this epic. The background alone is something I'd gladly hang on my wall.

This is an absolutely spectalularly crafted piece and I love every part of it! I love the fact that you chose Zecora and included the fact that she is able to create a remedy for everything! The character design is fantastic and I really love the brightly lit wings as well as how they contrast with every other color! The tribal markings really represent her character extremely well and every element of this piece works incredibly well! I love this piece and hope to see more from you! Great work! Kind regards, Princess Luna

A few (possibly silly) Ideas: Tote bags, pillows, erm...sketch book covers? NO WAIT, not a sketchbook cover, a Notebook cover! >D (or maybe the cover of a Zecora themed artbook?!)

This was a great surprise to see on the front page of DA when I was just checking my messages. This is simply eyepoppingly amazing!

Though wouldn't it be a neat design if the potion was morphing into the wings, instead of them being separate entities?
