Hey everypony! I would like to know what you think of this Twilight artwork and how to improve other digital art in the future (besides less sloppyness, I know it's a little sloppy :3 )


Another thing, can you not request critiques anymore on DevArt? Am I just too derpy, because I can't find that option anywhere.

Ye, kinda. I based this off a comic and I changed a few things to kinda get that subtle reference in. But it's very subtle so I hope no one gets offended or anything, for whatever reason.

I checked your channel - you a trying to be second tiara very hard, which is rather sad and pathetic. What's up, his popularity won't let you sleep? Or may be it is the insane bronybux? Either way it won't work. Examples: Atryl and Siden. Everyone knows Atryl, only insider aware of who Siden is. Same with Aphex Angel and that friend of him who tries to emulate his artwork, style and narrative.

But what is more important is not the fact that youp lay the same ideas, for the same public that is fine. Problem is that you try to copy his horrible animation, very bad, primitive stretching instead of tweens and incredible bad expressions. The latter is so damn crazy and inconsistent it is very easy to spot Tiara or his copycat(s). No other animators in the fandom has such issues.
>> No. 121103

I don't know any of those people or their work, I don't know what a bronybux is.

I'm a guy who, 2 months ago, started to get interested in animation and is learning how to do it properly step by step, very slowly. I've never done any animation in my life except for the last 2 months and, despite of what you appear to want, I'm not gonna stop.

I'm sorry you didn't like my stuff. I'll try to improve on whatever it is you don't like, even though I didn't really understand what it is.

I guess what I learned from your comment is I'll have to search for those guys and try to stay clear of their style cause apparently they suck. This is just about how useful your comment is to me.

Thanks for the input

Need some help with shading. Perspective, anatomy, motion, and backgrounds too, but that's for another time.

This was my second attempt at this drawing, will post original in next post. I was trying to blend by smudging it with my finger. Don't like the way it turned out. So I came here to try to get some advise on shading and how to improve the drawing. I'm planning on restarting it over from scratch.

I have little experience with shading. I usually always stopped at sketching things out and call it a day. Just started drawing again a couple of weeks ago, for the Equestria Daily Artist Training Grounds. Before that the last time I was interested in drawing was like four years ago during my little anime phase. Didn't get far with it.

Original idea was to have the Queen looking up, crying. With some clouds and lightning in the background. I wanted to add rain, but didn't know how to go about it.

Download "Successful Drawing". Study page 3. Then read pages 94 - 100 or so. Then study page 3 again. (Seriously, that web site is a gold mine in pdf form. Absorb it.)

Your pony is made of basic solid geometric shapes that reflect light in predictable ways. Find the spot on the opposite side of your light source that is most protected from the main light but doesn't directly face in the opposite direction to catch reflected light. That's your "hump", the darkest part of shadow. Blend out from there following the contours of your shapes.

You might want to do a few of the basic shapes with the same light source to get a feel.

First off, I'm using a Mac. I have Photoshop Elements, which came with my tablet back when I got it, but I really don't like the brush tool at all on there. It's hard to do any sort of lineart or edges, because their always kinda transparent. The pencil tool is really sharp, but too... pixely. I have gimp too, and it has a nice sharp pen/brush tool, but it doesn't have pressure support, and the layout is kinda weird.

Does anyone have any suggestions for better software, or a way to fix the brush tool in photoshop? Pic is somewhat an idea of what I'm trying to get at.
>> No. 121042
I don't use PSE, kinda surprised they don't have some checkboxes somewhere on the brush tool to tick off whether you want pressure to affect size, opacity or both. Turning off opacity control would go a long way for what you want.

If you really want to try new software and want ubercrisp edges, you might try vectoring in Inkscape; I know they have a Mac distribution, and if it's good enough for the Manehattan Project lady:

My particular poison is Paint Tool SAI. I can't use a tablet to ink for beans, but when my hands behave the vector tools are smooth, if rudimentary. I see that some folks have done WINE wrappers to Macify it, but I can only vouch for the Windows version.
>> No. 121052
You can activate pen pressure sensitivity in gimp by going to edit>Preferences>Input Devices>Configure Extended Imput Devices

next, open the paint dynamics tab by going to Windows>Dockable Dialogues>Paint Dynamics

You can probably figure out what to do from there. Hope this helps!

Just remember, you don't have to go all digital if you don't want to. You can learn a lot from traditional media.

> The pencil tool is really sharp, but too... pixely.
A common trick is to work on something at 4 to 8 times the size you intend to publish it. When it's ready to post, shrink it down by 25% or 12.5% which will add anti-aliasing to the edges. It also minimizes a variety of mistakes, and makes line art look all around better in general. Working in a larger size makes it easier to work on details, too.

I use Photoshop CS4, but almost all the tools I use are in Elements and GIMP. You can actually do quite a bit with simple tools, some fundamental theory, and little experimentation. :3

Hello, everypony! I'd like to make a little money to help out my sis, so I thought I'd look to taking commissions. I'm kinda a simple person, and this is a first- but I LOVE TO DRAW these ponies. I mean, dang- it's so addictive. So why not?

I can be contacted at my dA or Fiverr account mainly, but you can talk to me here to.

Here are the details:

-I work on a tablet with stylus, simple paint program.

Hi all Im looking to take requests in doing some art stuff with either OCs or canon ponies, I also do coloring, recoloring, alterations, gifs(not drawn ones yet), and vectoring so anything pony and photoshop related is probably along my lines, Im relatively new to drawing but I'll do the best I can with requests, the pic is an example of coloring I have done of another artists lineart.

Hello! Could you draw dear little Kitty Hawk?
She currently has no visual reference, so could you do with a description?

"I may look old, but I can still pack a punch! Ignore the bags under my eyes and scrawny appearance, looks can decieve you. I tend to keep my mane and tail in a bun (to keep it from dangling while I fly) and wear goggles plus an aviator's hat around the place. My special talent is safe flying, and it suits me well."

As you can tell, Kitty is a pegasus, and her cutie mark is an aviator's hat. Her coat is a pale yellow, mane is a pale blue, and her eyes are a pale green

How much would that cost?

Itty bitty Dashies are so cute!!!
