Well, for starters, you should just draw what you want, others shouldn't affect what you do, and believe me, only thinking about other people's work is only going to hinder you, you don't get to be good overnight, and being an artist is a long struggle, one you're never going to be satisfied with.

The best way to deal with that feeling is just drawing, and not comparing yourself, yeah, maybe other people are better, but other people aren't you, and they will never be as unique as oneself, remember that.

Now, if you want to make a difference, start drawing A LOT, don't look back, if you think what you do is ugly, then try to see what you can do to make it better, watch other drawings, try to give it a spin, one only you can imagine.

I can't promise it will help soon, but I can assure you it works, and I know I'm a terrible example, but with time, you can see all of your mistakes, eventually.

¿Y que no hablas español?, ya se que tu gramatica es interesante, y te he visto desde que empezaste a postear en /pony/ (hasta cuando cambio a /show/ y volvio a /pony/) asi que has estado aqui un buen rato, eso me hace preguntarme, ¿desde cuando dibujas?, no se ve como si acabaras de recoger el lapiz sinceramente, ¿ya llevas un tiempo no?

Yo he dibujado desde que tengo memoria. siempre me a encantado, en la escuela llevaba mis revistas de club nintendo para copiar los muñecos para las portadas de mis libretas.
a finales de primaria empeze a interesarme en magic the gathering, y me encantaba el arte de esas cartas, por lo que yo queria volverme tan buen dibujante como para trabajar en wizard of the cost haciendo el arte de algunas cartas.

este es el dibujo mas viejo que tengo a la mano ahorita, lo subi a mi deviant en el 2010, pero creo que es mas viejo.

lo que me paso es que ya tengo mas de un año que no dibujo continuamente, imagino que me desanime con mi poco progreso, y no podía dedicarle mucho tiempo a practicar por mi carrera, y mi madre piensa que esto sirve solo como un hobby, no para cosas grandes, si no puedo obtener dinero de ello no sirve de mucho.

y pues bueno, llevo 18 años o mas dibujando , pero hace como 2 he tenido muy poca actividad.

Unas vacaciones habia viajado al df para tomar clases con un maestro artista, se veia muy bueno y capaz, pense que ese me daria el impulso que necesitaría para progresar.... y me lo arrestaron 2 veces y no pudo darme el curso, se metio en problemas porque lo intentaron asaltar.

Eso si es mala suerte, y además es bastante desalentador que piensen que sólo es un hobby, pero ya sabes como son las cosas en este país, es por eso que jamás me cambie de Biología cuando era joven, sí me interesa el diseño gráfico, y he trabajado en eso, pero al final siempre acabe distanciado de esto, y bueno, pasaron los años y llego MLP e intenté darle un poco.

No te desanimes hermano, si te interesa, ya verás una forma de sacarle algo, si no puedes, busca una manera de sustentarlo, tienes actitud y capacidad, no lo dejes solo por dedicarte a otras cosas, ahorita ando muriéndome con mi trabajo y la maestría, pero de una u otra manera le hallo tiempo a esto.

#Digital #Canon #OCs #Gallery #Discussion #Taking requests #Critique wanted

So I've note done any proper poni art, I'm just strange and not prone to the useal kind of fanart usually.

But I figure why not.

I draw pretty fast and loose so I'll just start up a thread and take a few requests or receive critiques/discussion.

My style probably lends itself better to grimdark but whats life without challenges to push our boundaries.

I know I have already snagged a request from you, so I would totally understand if you don't want to do this one, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask and I think it would be fun to see this done in your art style, as you might be able to put a bit of a creepy vibe around it :D This is kinda copy paste, cause I asked another artist if they could do this as well.

If you could, I would love a customized version of a janus mask, and if you don't know what those are, it is the comedy masks often used in theatre, of one smiling and the other frowning or crying.

Why I wanted a request though, is I wish to customize one a bit more. I'm not sure how well you can pull off a front view, but let's give this a shot. Feel free to deny it if you do not feel up to it.

So, I would like the one mask, instead of the two face, just the one with the half and half expression. I would like the whole thing to be white, instead of the somewhat common black and white version. the split in the middle, instead of being a straight split, can you perhaps make it jagged and broken, like a large crack was put in the porcelain? And then instead of the a frowning half face, can you make that side of the face instead look very angry, like it is frozen in a scream of rage.

And then the last detail which is most important and why I have been failing to create it myself, is if you could make it in the form of a pony head or mask to fit a pony? I have been trying this myself in gimp for a while because I wanted to make it into a cutie mark, but I'm having a very hard time creating the form of the pony head XD

Thank you so much in advance if you do decide to do it, and no problem if you don't!

So I derped and let my thread 404. My last cutie mark was this one. If you didn't get your mark and don't see it in my to-do list, ask for it and I shall post it asap. This is my to-do list from the old thread.

---High priority requests---
A lute
A lightening bolt, with a pair of goggles across it (flat sunglass type goggles, not the thick welding kind)
A mug of coffee with the steam rising from it forming a heart
A stormcloud with very light grey thunder bolts
A biscut - not tasty
A pony or unicorn skull and cross bones
A ruby in the shape of a heart
A lapis lazuli shield

#Gallery #Discussion

A talented artist had passed away recently and unexpectedly. Her funeral was held on the 27th of September and many people are making artworks in memory of her on Tumblr with the hashtag #askstonedtrixie and #artofthepony.

Her tumblr blog was one of early pony blogs to come out, back in 2011.

She died at the age of 15.

If you want to make fanart in memory of Ghost, then go here for details
