To Know Her Better by WarePWn3 To Know Her Better by WarePWn3
Now Gilda here is a subject I'd like to categorize as a misunderstood individual. Personally I don't hate or dislike her, if anything I'd like to know more about her and hopefully more will be explain in season 2

As for the art, just a little practice with the light and shadow and since I never draw Gilda before so here it is. :)

I still hold out hoe Gilda will reurn in Season 4. Just... after watching her episode, my heart broke to see RD (the bearer of Loyalty), callously brush her off after Gilda probably just had a bad day.

This is very beautiful. A sad, young looking Gilda.

Time will tell if Studio B have any plan for her return in Season 4. I find that odd too since I'm pretty sure RD knows Gilda more longer than the rest of the ponies.

Thanks for the comment.

I wouldn't mind seeing Gilda again. I felt of the characters in the show, she got it rough. She probably wasn't as bad as we thought...and her design was awesome great pic dude.

Wow, she's lovely! :D

Absolutely agree with your description there. I really like Gilda - not so much for what she *IS*, as much as what she *COULD* have been. It still bothers me a bit that they didn't really go into detail as to why Gilda is the way she is, other than "she changed." =/

I have my own theories as to how she became what she is... but if the show decides to elaborate on her, I'd be interested to see what the "official" explanation is. :) Until then, pics like this give me some hope. Thanks for sharing!

Welp we're just gonna have to see if she'll be making any appearance in season 2 :) Rather than assuming things and forcing it to be canon I'll just accept whatever they have up their sleeve for Gilda.

You're welcome and thanks for the comment! :)

Nah, I don't plan on coloring it. I'm horrible at coloring. :P
Besides, I like the black and white look. lol
It gives a slight melancholic feel to it for me.
It's alright for a late reply, late reply is better than no reply XD

Haha I'm not that good with coloring either :P But due to the FiM's nature and its full spectrum of color I'm still studying the color theory whenever I can and put it to practice on my art.

Very very cool. Her profile is an odd one and you nailed it.
The lighting makes her mood ambiguous, which is kinda what I think you were going for.

:iconwarepwn3:
WarePWn3 Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2011  Hobbyist Filmographer
Thanks man. To be honest I wasn't sure what kind
of mood am I aiming for at first until I've done with
the shadow then decided to lighten up the eye, add
some detail and WHAM! Ambiguous...that's the word
I've been looking for.

I know what kind of emotion do I want to spur in my
art most of the time, just that my limited vocab prevents
me from giving a proper description. I guess that's
the drawback for being an artist. What we can't put in words
we make it up in our arts.

On second look, it *does* look like someone forgot her birthday.

Pinkie was... unstable, but not particularly violent as such. They'd make a good pair I think, I've no doubt that if Gilda had shown up in that episode she could have convinced her to pull some very dangerous pranks.

WarePWn3 Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2011  Hobbyist Filmographer
Quite hard to say for sure but unlike Gilda
Pinkie knows her limit on how far is too far
but knowing her nature it's a bit hard to know
what she'll do next haha.

:iconziblink:
Ziblink Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
I think Gilda knows what too far is, it's just her definition differs. (It's not like she'd kill someone, she just doesn't mind if people get injured or swindled.)

Pinkie I think is an apt case for doing something really, really bad by accident. (Especially given the target audience, the lesson 'Think before you act' has been seen in a few cartoons.) I can easily see her seriously injuring someone (Physically or emotionally) via a poorly thought out prank. (Or via pinkie sense, or some random burst of depression; what would she have done if she'd actually got MAD at Gilda? Tried to force her to party? That might not end well.)

Yeah, Pinkie is a serious injury waiting to happen.

One of the best Gilda images I've seen. She's an interesting character for sure, I also loved how she was voiced by the same actress as Revy from Black Lagoon. Regardless of whatever history she may have, her actions in parts of that episode were inexcusable. I'd like to see her return in season 2, but hopefully Dash talks some better sense into her and brings her around a bit so she's less of an antagonistic bitch.

One of my favorite pieces of pony art yet even if it is just a portrait. It shows a depth to her character, I love the shading/coloring.

Gilda is the hardest to love and tolerate. Worse than nightmare moon, worse than trixie. When she blew up on fluttershy........

Let's just say I respect you alot for being big enough not to hate her.
