These aren't exactly MLP, but as they still feature ponies I thought this was the appropriate forum.

PonyIsland had a week-long speedpaint contest, in which contestants had a specific timeframe to draw and submit artwork relating to a given theme. I didn't make it through all five rounds due to other commitments, but I did complete the first three. They feature Canary (Fairy Pony), Maika (Kirin) and Grace (Reindeer) respectively.
Done in Photoshop Elements 6. I know they're full of flaws, so I'm not looking for critique this time. =)
(Time taken: 7 hours out of 24.)

(Time taken: 2 1/2 out of 14.)

(Time taken: 1 and 1/2 hours. The round began at around 4:30 in the morning for me, and by the time I was done with the livestock, that was all the time I had left.)

Mom has been pestering me to refine and complete the last one, so it may see improvement in the eventual future.

I LOVE the Reindeer one! Full of action and gracefulness. And I agree with @Moonbreeze, the second one is stunning with that background. And the lightning on the first one, it makes the piece soft and quiet. Same with the three "ponies".
In a nutshell, I love them all!

Thank you both. ♥
@SparkleFlash - Yep, I played for nearly six years , under the username Sundown - I'm currently letting my account expire due to school and other commitments that I can't be distracted from. Hoping to return within a year or two.
You've got some lovely ponies, Heartbreaker is especially pretty. :) Kirins are one of my favorites, too, next to Phoenixes.
