"My little MizMiz, my little MizMiz, where will her adventures lead?"
I'm sorry. I had do.
I decided yesterday afternoon to start drawing something different than my norm. Sorta. MORE FEMALE PRACTICE! 8V
It ended up being that I was recently enjoying hear a friend give a history to her fursona, Misora, who then perked some of my interest at her soft and lovable self.
This was my basis, and part of her story, plus my imagination that loves epic ideas.
I also did this because I wanted to pick a good buddy and point the shotgun of love at them and blow them away, and my mood of "I am bored. I haven't arted enough. I haven't finished ANYTHING in a long time. I think I'll shock someone."
NOW THE ARTIST TECHNICAL RANTING AND OPINIONS BIT:
I came close to giving her a blue and white version of a black and white cow across her body (sky effect), but thought that was too much.
I left her body a very mild sheen, soft, because the blue sky does not sparkle or glow, or seem anything but a brilliant matte. (I think her thighs look awesome XD)
I made her white belly creep up further to her cheeks, and intro the white into the ears. I think her face needed some to blend them together a bit more. I loved the idea of making her belly a very high-gloss-silky white, catching light. Reminded me a bit of how how large fluffy clouds can have shadows in their contours, and then catch light and nearly blind you.
I used more white ends for the flare on her arms, tying them in to her whitish hands. Her feet have the same effect.
Horns. Yes. I made them bigger and a bit more flamboyant than Misora's true design. I was stubborn, and wanted to give her very elegant ones. I nearly made them white and gray like her claws, but they got lost when I tried it. I did give them a somewhat "singed" tip, like many animals have. They fit her claws at least partially that way.
Pink on the hands. I know she has none, but she does have pink paw pads. It seemed only natural, and I could imagine her having red blood. I rather like how fair her hands look, and enjoy the edging of gloss around her palms edge to show that maybe the backs have a very short sort of downy feeling.
The hair. It IS a bit 'fly away', but I intended her to look very airy, sweet, and elegant. And OMFG THE TAIL POOF. I almost effed it up...but, COLORS. GLOWY. MAGICAL FURRRR. It has been 3 years since I colored anything in quite that style. It feels so good, you have no idea. So ass you see, matte blue body, shiny gloss white belly, and soft and full nearly iridescent fluffy mane and tail. Three textures that I hope come together well.
And originally, I had wanted to give her wings...but oh boy. WHat a chore I should not attempt. INSTEAD, I put a feather in her hand. I actually wasnt sure what she was holding at first, but, 1.No wings, 2.breezy day, 3.staring at fingers with a smile. Obviously a feather was choice. :>
Time:Roughly 10 to 14 hours. (I am out of practice and often distracted by mom.)

I hope you really don't mind that I altered her a bit. >3> o3o'[EDIT]
HOLY CRAP I FORGOT. D8!!!
She gave me a much needed redline to straighten out the legs and trunk, as well as her open hand. ;3; I totally almost missed you.
