Hurricane Fluttershy by GSphere Hurricane Fluttershy by GSphere
During Hurricane Sandy we lost power for over a week, I drew this Fluttershy during it and colored it in SAI last night when it came back on. But many people lost their homes, property, and some their lives, and others are still without utilities, so we had it very easy in comparison.

Here's the full page which I cropped the portrait from: [link] which also makes the title make a little more sense.

I really like this. It's nice to see how people do with just paper/pencil. Also I feel like this has nice inspiration to it.

Thank you :) I drew Applebloom and tried for Sweetie Belle in the original, but, in the end they didn't fit too well.

Fluttershy doesn't know how to help the people...
But I'm sure, she'll think of something.

((You never know how it truly feels t'ill it happens to you... There for I can't really say anything here.))

A masterpiece. Should be framed next to the Mona Lisa at the Louvre.

Artists for all time will discuss the implications of the sadness, displayed in Fluttershy's eyes. No tears shed, as too many have already fallen, only lost within the rain. The storm has passed, but within its grasp, the stolen dreams and souls of good people...

Very sad and strong words... and so moving too. I can't value my drawing that highly, but, I certainly do value your response! Thank you :)

Haha, at first, I tried to make a funny comment, but then, it got dark real quick once I read your description to the picture... Then, I felt like a dick.
Great picture, though, seriously. The colors make Fluttershy look worn down from time and depression.

And in a few hundred years some art historian will put the art world in an uproar when he claims this piece is actually just a fragment of a lost larger work. Could the missing portions have held the secret of the model's forlorn countenance? Did some botched restoration effort destroy all hope of finding conclusive answers? Or did the artist deliberately obscure portions of the work, so as to create the effect? The answer may be forever lost to time.

Haha, this is quite a vision of the future! I hope that pony art has a chapter in the history books a few centuries from now :) It definitely deserves it!

In all seriousness, I love the full version of this (which isn't to say that I don't love this one). The black and white just has a sort of… power (for lack of a better word) that works really well for the scene.
