Last of 24 speedpaints based on limited colour schemes. The list can be found here: https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/8884866/
This one is based on Sylveon.

Untimed, but most likely ~3 hours.

I think this was one of the easiest, but it was also one where I might have put in less effort than usual... I knew I wanted to finish it relatively quickly, so I may have skipped on some details that I'd normally have put more attention towards if I had been taking my time. Maybe it still looks good. I hope.

Finally, I'm done with these colour palettes! It took way longer than I originally intended - I thought it'd take a bit over a month, but it took nearly six - but in the end I'm glad I wrapped it all up. If nothing else, then at least I proved to myself that I could do it. Despite this whole thing having been a significant departure from what I usually make and post, I hope people still got some enjoyment out of it. It's something I wanted to try out and heck, I sure did it. But next time I take on a self-imposed challenge, maybe it won't be something that'll make everything else grind to a halt while I'm working on it.

As usual, I'm open to any comments and critique. Feel free to let me know what you like about the image, and what/how I could improve.

    Love the no lineart
    NIce clean blending and shading
    Characters have cute faces
    However, I kinda wish there was more background color opposite she almost blends into the background as well as the bubblegum. (Sorry)
    all around 4.5/5 star rateing from me!

      Thank you!
      And good point on the background; when I didn't have a specific idea in mind for the background, I'd most often simply use a flat colour from the palette. I guess it would've made it more interesting if it were a gradient instead.
