Secrets and Lies by Violyre Secrets and Lies by Violyre
Quick and simple doodle of a cool concept that I've had for a while now. Messing around with textures. Layered over Pinkamena is struckdumb.deviantart.com/art/… and the base texture is wanderingsoul-stox.deviantart.….
Kind of dark. This is my mood sometimes, though not very often. I just felt like making it because it seemed cool. I don't really post a lot of Pinkamena stuff anymore, do I? Mostly because of my love for drawing wings...I bet most of you have forgotten or never even knew that Pinkamena was my favorite pony. The Pinkie/Pinkamena emotional thing is a lot like me. 

Don't post in the comments stuff about how "grimdark is stupid" or "pinkamena is just pinkie's full name hurr" because a.) as a matter of fact, many people do quite enjoy some grimdark, such as myself, and b.) true, but Pinkamena is generally the fan-canon name for the straight-maned, evil or depressed side of Pinkie. 

I might be posting more of these kinda dark creepy or emotional things in the future, so look for that. Though I usually don't do very well with my promises...sorry about still no commissions, guys! >.< never any time...

Not sure if the blurry quality of the shadow beneath her and the sharp quality of the evil looking shadow contrast too much. Please give feedback on this! :meow: 

...small image, sorry...

(Also, I usually don't do this, but I may start opening more of my artwork for download. Especially simple things like this. You may use it as long as you keep my signature there and DO NOT ALTER IT IN ANY WAY.)

The old paper texture you used looks wonderful but it does not go with the theme of the picture. Now don't get me wrong, it didn't change the theme either it just didn't shall I say, enforce it. Pinkie's, or pinka mina's, shadow looks great because it's not solid color. I can tell you used either a deep grey or a high but not full ocopacity. The way you sepreated pinki's hair also looks great and goes with the depressed yet, somewhat happy theme of the over all picture. Although you could trim some of the excess off the sides it looks like an overall sucsess. Good work!
What do you think?

The pony, or the shadow? The pony Pinkamena's fourth leg is behind the others. And the shadow only has two--the front two. The other parts are her tail and her ghostly flowy tail-like thing.

Well, which part do you think is the third? Because if it's the tail, legs don't go at that angle, and if it's the wispy thing, I'm pretty sure legs have bones in them.

The title's mostly a reference to Pinkie's quote "it's all secrets and lies with those ponies." (at least I think that's what the exact words are.) I couldn't think of some way to make shadows incorporated into it, so I just left it "Secrets and Lies" :meow: thanks for the comment!

Take a look around you. What in this world doesn't have something masked or hidden beneath it. As days go on secrets become more easily hidden, but if hidden for too long someone will find out. If you try to expose a secret or a liar, no one believes you. Then suddenly You are the liar. I have been awoken to the lies riddled throughout my family. Keep your eyes open and your ear to the ground, because someone is hiding something.

Oh. I get what you mean. I'm sorry that's what you've been feeling a lot lately. I mean, I feel almost just the same way, it's just I always try to find something to get my mind off of things and try not to be so pessimistic(I have a bad habit of being pessimistic); sort of like using things to block whatever pain I feel (I don't do drugs though O.o). I'm pretty observant and I think a lot about these things, so yeah I'm aware of the all the possible lies and secrets of the people in my life and all the "phonies" that have been in my life (I quote phonies because I'm reading Catcher in the Rye and I'm sort of picking up on the vocabulary...you probably don't even care but whatever :-P)
Anyways, I hope your view on the world changes eventually despite all the sad and ridiculous things that are going on; I don't like knowing there's more people in hurting and I can't do anything to help...

Well I hope that things go well for you too. Things are a bit better due to the Christmas season. Right now though, I'm putting it all behind me. I wont let anything get in my way of a good Christmas vacation. Speaking of. Happy Holiday Season!
