HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIBSY!
Although at the time of this posting it's a little early.
Seeing as how Wildfire wanted a hooficure so badly I got you a voucher.
Not sure if it's the gift she really wanted though.
Jokes aside, I'd like to thank you for all the hard work you've put into this awesome show and for your willingness to interact with the community at large. Please accept this humble art newbs gift and here's wishing you an awesome bday, hope you have many more!
Oh yeah here's her page
As for the pic itself Wildfire is an awesome character to draw and work on. The hair in particular is very different in comparison to other characters in the show.
I went for just simple character piece, originally the idea was to have her look surprised while standing in front of the bike from Darkwing Duck with a ribbon tied around it. Didn't like the way the base sketches came out so I decided that simpler is quite often better. Wound up creating her cutie mark from scratch too, decided I'm going to start keeping a library of cutie marks.
The background I kept in line with what Sibsy has been doing in her coloured sketches of Wildfire. Again simpler is better and I decided to keep it loose.
