I just started a little comic strip about my OC and Scootaloo living together. It's a Yotsuba&-esque style and feel comic and drawn very sketchy. Please leave me some comments on what you think of it and how I'm doing.

Part 1-

Part 2-

Thank you!

A thread for everyone to post pictures to get feedback so they can improve on future pictures they will work on or to fix one they are working on currently.

This one I did myself.

HEY ALL YOU FILLIES AND GENTLECOLTS! This here thread be about the discussion of Cutiemarks, mostly of the Piraty variety, but feel free to discuss the fine art of the the show and whatever else you may feel that is relevant to these mysterious little things.

SO, my purpose for making this thread is I have been sitting here on the couch for the past few weeks and this question just keeps worming it's way into my mind:

Besides the general symbol of the skull and crossbones, how would one go about making a cutie mark for a piraty type pony? And what would this, or these, cutie marks entail? Would they simply mean that the pony was born to be a pirate? Or perhaps something more specific that has to do with a pirate type life?

So pretty much, I want to discuss some ideas of what a few good cutie marks would look like if your character where to find out that he/she were born to be a pirate. I've been interested in coming up with a cutie mark that would be obvious in it's meaning, yet not be the traditional skull and crossbones. A google search of 'pirate symbols' provided me with very little, and was littered with the usual flag sign of the skulls.

So ya, let's get this discussion underway!

hmm...I think I'm going to have to look up what a flintlock an saber is again hehe, but interesting. I keep trying really hard to think of how the cutie marks usually appear in the show, and how one might incorporate a pirate theme to them because I'm interested in making my own pony that has some kind of pirate theme.
>> No. 121235
>Looks those things up in google images
Oh dur, how did I not know what those were...Hmm, that right there is actually giving me an idea. I think I'm going to mess around in gimp for a while and see if I can create some kind of cutie mark with those...
>> No. 121240
Two thoughts:
A bit cut into eight wedges. (Pieces of eight, y'see.)

A simple black spot.

(Unfortunately, all my piratey knowledge is pretty much RL Stevenson.)

So, I'm working from this tutorial:

And I'm stuck at the part where I'm supposed to connect the head to the body. It says to select the nodes at the top of the circle and drag them upward, but that is just changing the size of the shape for me.

Can someone help?

Disregard tutorials advice and learn pony anatomy, preferably through sketching with pencil or tablet.
Use these:

And ESPECIALLY this one:
>> No. 121233
I'd disregard that artist's advice in general because they seem to have made the mistake that the tools you use= the quality of your pic. While some tools are more useful than others, using inkscape over MS paint isn't going to help you if what you need to learn is anatomy.

Good afternoon, everypony! Here I am, taking requests for OC ponies once again. I've done this once before, and I'm glad to say it helped me take boredom off myself and improve greatly.

I can also re-ponify older generation ponies, or the so-called HasbrOCs too, in G4 style!

A description of your pony's personality and attaching a cutie mark vector would be awesome. If not, a description of the cutie mark would also work.

I'll post a few examples after this post, too!

Here are the rules and stuff:
-My work is FREE. That means you don't have to pay anything for it. However, if you like it and have a bit or two to spare, feel free to drop by my DA and offer a donation.
-I will only do one pony per request per person on this round. In case you were drawn last time, feel free to request again.
-Bear in mind that, as this is free and takes effort on my part, I will only partake in the requests I enjoy. This meaning, mainly, that I won't take on OCs that are horrible mutations of nature.

Heya /art/, I've been lurking this board for a while and I feel that I can finally show some of my art to you wonderful artistic ponies, improvement advise shall be greatly appreciated, for I feel that my art seems to... Lack a certain element that I have yet to see myself. If you guys have any insights it would be very helpful, if not, then I hope my drawings are pretty. I don't own a tablet or anything so I am stuck with pencil and paper for now. Ill even try to add a little story for my drawings for better understandings or interesting points.

Can't fully take credit for this one, Its is mostly based off a pose that I saw another anthro pony in, it looked like an interesting angle to try so I thought might as well yeah? Also I love sharpies

Hmm, seeing as this thread is still alive, I might as well post some more.
SH crossover, both my favorite series combined equals pure awesomeness, but surprisingly enough I have only read 1 of the Silent Ponyville stories.

I just came up with a look for my OC, but I have no clue what to name it! Could anyone please come up with any good names for it? :c
>> No. 121138
Her talent is apparently cat related, so cat puns are given:
Cat Nap
Kitty Hawk (she's also a pegasi, so bonus, although I already have an OC named Kitty Hawk)

Domesticated cat species are also up for names, the best I could make out were Bobtail and Ragamuffin.

I liked it =) There's not a lot of tips to give, though. You seem to know what you're doing and you're doing it well enough.
Don't think of that as critisism, though. It's more of a "can't really find anything to complain about" kinda thing. =)
The next step if you want to get better is to keep challenging yourself to do more exiting poses and backgrounds and interactions.
And don't be afraid to explore your own style a bit.

Also that Twilight Ghaahahahaahahaha!

Alright bronies. Is my rainbow dash drawing good?
>> No. 121106
It looks pretty good! Some minor errors though, her tail looks like its attached to her right flank due to her back leg being layered over it. And some proportions errors by her back left leg, I did a red line to better explain what I mean. I hope this helps!

It's a job well done this one is!
