Huzzah, it's finally done!! I started this vector in a livestream about a week and a half ago, and it started as a show trace and evolved into a fully shaded piece. Here's Sweetie Belle in the CMC's thinking corner doing some very deep pondering. I don't think there's a part of this vector that's gone unshaded
I tried to develop my shading style a bit more, and used a lot of different techniques to try to pull it all off.
I'm currently working on Ponyscape v0.2, right now I'm trying to redo the layering system to make it more efficient and useful, but it's not really going as smooth as I would've hoped. Hopefully soon I'll have another release, and I'll be sure to fix building on Linux and Mac for the next version.
Anyhow, I hope you like this vector! Feel free to critique it! Svg can be found here: [link]
If you do use this (or any of my other artwork), please let me know so I can check out what you make with it!
