#Digital #Canon #OCs #Gallery #Taking requests

Hey, I'm not exactly at peak artistic form. Weather effects my health pretty badly especially in winter. So I'm forced to not draw as much as I'd like too.

Coming here as fun practice ground I'll take a couple requests here and there for kicks and to help defrost my joints. Be civil, no passive aggressive attitudes. I will pick what I want to draw but you're free to request whatever you like. I like OC's and canon so either way works.

As mentioned before, cold kills my health. I can't draw everything. I'll try to keep up but in the end this is for my own enjoyment. Please remember that. Thank you for reading!

Go ahead and post your ideas and refs.

Hello! I have no idea if you are currently accepting requests but if you are, would you like to do something with this pony here? Her name is Ella. I have no preference as to what you draw/make, as I would like you to do it out of your own enjoyment, but the only thing that I do as is to not have a black pupil in the eye. She is a blind unicorn for rp purposes XD

But yes, if you would enjoy doing an art with her, I am always looking to expand my gallery and would most appreciate it. Thank you if you do decide to do it, no problem if your too busy or sick. :)

her snout is blue, I just couldn't make that fit in the shape of a pony snout

Ow wow, that is a beautiful pony. I didn't notice her before :D

Haven't been on here for a long time, but even so I'm still looking for tips, suggestions etc.

#Traditional #Discussion

Hey guys, I'm doing my first artist alley booths this year and I wanted a consensus on a few things, as I'm starting to stock up on stuff now.

A. When looking for wearable stuff at conventions, which pony character do you tend to look for stuff first?

B. I'm planning to make matching tails and hats, and I wanted to add the characters eyes to the hats, but I felt using the BBBFF song's art style (thread pic) of eyes is a much better choice to embroider on a hat. But would people buy it like that, or do yall prefer strictly the normal pony eyes?

C. Is there anything you really wish people sold at cons, but you never tend to see?

Thanks, and if anyone has tips on artist alley or questions feel free to use this thread.

I would need your honest opnion, the mark was an idea i later scrapped. I can't seem to think of a good name other than what i use as a nick name..

Thoughts? Be as Constructive as you can possibly be..? :l

Which one is the OC? The one being hugged by Pinkie or the pegasus?
>> No. 121372
The Pegasus is Derpy, the OC in question would be the one in a Pinkie Sandwhich.

Good {insert time of day} everypony!
Just a small time militant strategist artist, who's sole purpose is to exterminate the insignificant excuse you call moral biological life draw whatever you want me to, and to make new friends.

I'm still evolving in my skill, and would love to receive both critique and requests!

I'm painting a pony for the first time ever using a Wacom Tablet for a friend. I'd like to know how I'm going so far, and if anypony can throw out some critique or advice on the digital painting process.

Right now all I've done is render a pony in a rendering engine (see imgur), and am sampling parts of that render whose angle and thickness match that of what I'm trying to paint, using a brush setup to change opacity with pressure.

If you figure it out, lemme know. Been trying to figure digital painting for a while, and this is the best I've managed to do. After eight months, I almost get defining forms through value. Still not any good at tightening up the edges with a tablet the way I can with pencils or charcoal.

One thing I can pass along: I would recommend *not* tying opacity to pressure. Color theory is hard enough, but now things are too dark because you don't have steady enough hands for the tablet? It will drive you mad. Use the sliders for value or set your opacity to the number keys or something. It could be just me, but it's worth trying if you're struggling.
>> No. 121246
Thank you, but from what I've seen, it ends up tying opacity to pressure is the standard way of doing things, that's even how it works with most traditional mediums. If you're having problems with not having steady enough hands I'd recommend turning down your programs pressure sensitivity in some way and remember not to press down too hard at all. I can help you turn it down if that interests you. What program are you running.

Is there anyway you can turn off the canvas filter on that painting? It's hard o see what's going on with your shading beneath all the noise.
>> No. 121281
For pen work I agree, but paint doesn't get darker when you push harder. So long as you're comfortable and not fighting the tools, though.

You can turn canvas and brush texture on and off in SAI pretty easily. But I don't think you can remove the textures you've already created.

(I agree though, it looked neat in the early stages but as the brush got smaller for details the texture started to overwhelm.)

>> No. 121279
I can't give you a picture, go request one from the other art threads. Look for the 'taking requests' and 'OC' tags.

I can give you names, though. If it's singing in general, maybe names like Sweet Tunes or High/Low Note (depends on singing voice). I could come up with some genre-specific names, though.

Hi! You seem bogged down with requests, but I'll add this to the pile if I can.

I'd like a digital picture for my ponsona Epiphany (Epi or Pip for short), and here's a link:

Howdy everyone! I'm new here on /art/, kinda glad I had some nerve to click it (as I usually hang around the /merch/ board)
So anyways, I'm a low-noticed artist. I've been drawing ponies for about maybe three months now. Seeing how I have improved greatly on my art, just thought I'd share it here and get y'all to help me out with fans and critiques. All help will be appreciated, and I may take commissions/requests in the future ;)
Have a nice day!

What I've seen so far is brilliant. My only nitpick is that the ponies themselves are a little tall and gangly than ponies on the show, more like Fleur de Lis or Snails.
>> No. 121257
My style isn't exactly meant to replicate the show's however.
At least not completely
