Lyra and Bon Bon at Wimbledon by Denial-is-Tragic Lyra and Bon Bon at Wimbledon by Denial-is-Tragic
Pfft, who wants to see Federer vs Murray when we have the ultimate showdown between these two. =D

Just a silly idea I got in my head a few weeks ago, and was inspired by wimbledon to finish it.

I was in a rush to get this submitted before the match started, so I didn't have any time to render the background properly.

You want original lyra face?:fav.me/d570fmx

Lyra : Hands? Pfffff... hands shmands! I'm a unicorn! And proud of it! With my magic, I can lead my racket to that tennis ball like radar. Hands can't reach out 50 hooves into the air or out of bounds, but magic can!

Clapping Pony Icon - Sweetie Drops/BonBon : (with racket in mouth) Okay, okay, show I'm a tcherribul tennish player. I'm jusht a beginner!

Becareful of blancmanges. For they mean to win this tournament. Wait there. I need to find an uninteresting couple, who we've dismissed earlier in the show, and bring them here to devour the aliens. It's the only way.

Hey look, a gay couple slapping balls.
:iconifyouknowplz:


Seriously though, this is some great art. The stands could stand (heh) to be a bit more detailed to match the rest of the picture, but you already know that, lol. Aside from that, Lyra's bedroom eyes seem oddly out of place in this situation, too, unless I'm misinterpreting her face? And her cutie mark being a single shade while the coat around it is shaded makes it look strangely unreal. The shading on everything else is very well done thoug, and I really like the way you painted the manes and tails. I especially like the perspective on the net's shadow - though that does bring up the fact that I don't really understand why the court is curving. I assume you were trying for a subtle fish-eye lens type dealio? It's not a bad thing, I actually kind of like it.

If I had the power to make one change to this picture, I'd... well, I'd give the stands a bit more detail, lol. But if I had the power to make TWO changes, the second would be to remove the lens flare, or at least to make it smaller and restrict it to the sky and stands. It's a bit annoying seeing giant bubbles of desaturation on the prominent parts of the picture that draw the viewer's eyes, like Lyra, the racket, and the net.

All in all, though, I really like this. :iconfblikeplz:

Thanks for the kind words! :hug:
I wish I had spend more time on the background, but I wanted to get it submitted before the Wimbledon final so I could watch the match and I only had half an hour to do the stands.
Also I can't even remember what expression I was going for, but it certainly wasn't bedroom eyes. I think I was going for a look of determination and tease.
And yes I was going for the fish eye/wide angle look.

I'm going to be honest, I probably never going to make the stands more detailed, just because after spending a large amount of time on an image, it makes you sick of it and you lose motivation to work on it again. It would also be a lot of work trying to draw all the chairs, entrances, crowds of ponies etc.

If you want, I can remove the lens flare and upload it to my scraps. I probably could also remove the stands and add some sort of landscape background that doesn't require too much detail, it might make it feel a little more like equestria.

Anyway, thanks for the comment, I really don't get enough tips these days.

:)

How did you draw the grass of center court so realistically? It almost looks like a photograph.

Sorry that I could not say this in a nicer manner, but the court being blue hardcourt and not grass was bugging me. Good picture by the way.

Realistically? xD
I admit, I forgot what surface they use at Wimbledon, so I chose the easiest to render. I realize now that I was wrong.
Also It wasn't meant to be grass. I just rushed over the surface with PT Sai's spread brush.

It feels odd with the tongue though, so in this case, it's a suggestion to remove it for sake of removing confusions. ;)
