#Digital #Canon #OCs #Taking commissions

Haven't done this in a long time, but I could really use a little money right now.
$5 for one pony, coloured and shaded with either a very simple background or a transparent one. OC or canon, I don't mind.

Inks would be around $1 more because I hate inking. In my opinion, my coloured sketches look better than my inks anyway.

Email's in my name.
I also have a DA but don't bother contacting me on it:
Also, I can stream if people want.

Hi everypony. My friend made this picture, but she is realy shy, so... Please, give a helpful advice. In's important. She want critic. And sorry for my bad english)

Your friend need not be shy, that picture looks excellent!
It looks like she has a solid idea of the ponies' anatomy, which is always a great start. I'm also impressed by her simple yet very emotional choice of color scheme. The shading on it looks very, very good. She could have perhaps deepened up some of the values to allow the character to stand out more--his legs start to blend into the background a bit.
I really love this picture. Your friend must be very talented. I hope she feels comfortable sharing her work in the near future, because this piece is amazing!

I had some spare bodies lying around, and Raindrops doesn't get nearly enough love, so in between commissions I decided to throw a couple Raindrops together and hold a contest!

Anyone who is interested in a chance to win one of these feel free to drop by!

Heyo, i got some questions. I do alot of sketchwork and when i'm finished with the basic sketching, i'm pretty satisfied, but i've tried to take it to the next step and finish on my comp and i keep failing miserably.

I'm super new to art and drawing and i've got the tools, but no idea how to use them. Is there a place that can teach me how to use editing software effectively?

For example, i drew a picture and wanted to do a lighting effect where they were underwater, but my brain exploded just trying to think how.

Tools-Scanner, Bamboo tablet(got it for christmas!), Photoshop essentials and Autodesk sketchbook pro.
>> No. 120721
Well, there's two answers to ths.

The first is that there are tutorials buckin' all over the place. Generally, Googling for five minutes will get you some kind of tutorial of some sort. I can't really give you specific links, because there are waaaaaay too many to even start listing them. Youtube has a fair number of video tutorials, and DA has reams of them.

Some artists will post a step by step breakdown of their process, those can be really informative.

Second, rather than going for tutorials, try experimenting. Play with tools and settings just to see what they do. This will increase the chance that the next time you want to do something new, you'll be able to figure out a way to do it.

Third, you can do a lot of things without any fancy techniques. I do 80% of what I do with a simple paint brush, changing the size/opacity as needed, and just painting stuff.

Question: do you have a DA or tumblr or some such where you post your work? I might be able to give you more specific suggestions if I know where you currently stand.

Yeah, i have a DA, been a couple weeks since i posted though, gotten a little bit better since then.

Any help, suggestions, or critiques are appreciated, but i don't wanna take up too much of your time.
Every time i draw something, i realize how very little i know about it, it's reather intimidating to say the least.

#Digital #Canon #OCs #Discussion

My fanfic, "Black Equinox," is currently hosted on EQD, and I've made a tradition of heading each new chapter with artwork that depicts a scene or element of the story. I did most of them myself, but as the story progressed, I found my limited artistic ability didn't serve the content as I'd have liked.

Thus far I've enlisted FacelessJr for two chapters, the latest of which is the image used in this post. I've been quite satisfied with his work thus far, but nearly a month after trying to get the latest chapter rolling, he's found himself struck by a perfect storm of real-life issues, art blocks and plain old exhaustion.

As he is indisposed, I've been trying to find a temporary replacement who can fill this commission.

To any suitable artist interested in making a good buck, I need a scene drawn depicting a battle in Canterlot, with ponies throwing-down with an army of robotic drones. This is not likely to be an easy task, and requires an ability to draw more than ponies and traditional MLP elements.

I'd like to keep with a traditional show-accurate style if possible, but I'm open to alternative styles on a case-by-case basis.

I have details and reference art to help anyone interested, but these details involve spoilers to the story, so I'll not reveal them here.

Hey, everypony!
I don't really know what to say here, other than that I'm a brony who enjoys drawing in his spare time, and I'm trying to find ways to get involved in the fandom.
I largely focus on traditional pencil sketches, and my style is largely cartooning-based, but I try to change things up whenever I have the chance.

As an improving artist, I am always, ALWAYS open to constructive criticism. Feel free to critique my work here, or hit me up on my DeviantArt (link @ top)
Enjoy, and Brony On!

...and finished!
I'm not particularly satisfied with the coloring job, mainly because I feel this was a bit of a cop-out (I lacked the time and experience to spend too much time with it in Photoshop, so I went with a simple paint-like brush and flat colors).

The piece was prepared for this mixtape video:

It's an hour-long mix of various brony songs, primarily house and trance in this case.
Please take the time to check it out, I'm trying to shop it around and get some feedback.
The mix has a download link in the description, and I plan on making a downloadable wallpaper pack out of the background.

>...but only if you have the stomach for it...

In all honesty, I still don't know what to think about the "Twilicorn" scenario. I'm trying to wait for the episode to air to make any judgements, but with all the spoilers it's hard to stay unbiased. I just hope everyone at DHX manages to pull this off in a way that doesn't completely change the dynamics of the show. We'll see.
Anyway, I know there have already been too many RedBull jokes, but once I got this crack idea, I just couldn't resist.
Silly bronies--of all individuals, Twilight would know that energy drinks are bad for you! (I haven't heard the best things about RedBull's taste either...)

Being in Girl Scouts when I was younger (for over 10 years I might add), this pony was just kind of special to me. She's adorable and reminds me of my younger years! Even if she DID only show up for three seconds.

You can critique it if you want, but I never really touched it up so if you see fuzzy lines and mistakes I probably saw them as well.
(By the way, does she have a name yet? I heard Tag-a-long, but I didn't like that name so much.)

#Alterations #OCs #Gallery #Discussion

Hi yall! This is probably my first time making a thread here on art, but I thought, hey, why not see what people think?

I know recolors are generally frowned upon, but sometimes you just gotta have a pic of your oc and you don't have the time to wait for an artist, or sometimes all the artists are too busy. So, whenever I do recolor something, I try very hard to make it at least a little different than whatever pony I am using a recolor of. I of course would never claim to have created another persons artwork, but I do from time to time use some of their pictures in my recolors and gimp images. I try to give credit to the original artist if anyone ever asks, but that's not very often.

Anyways, on with the show! I'm just going to dump some of the pictures I have done in the past, and some I will be working on soon. I do accept critique if it is helpful and productive. Please don't be rude, mean, or give me shit. I will be polite and curtious to you if you treat me in the same manner.

A real way of actually "locking" pictures does not exist

You could just copy it with the image you're creating on top of which.
Think of it that way, if not THAT artist, there's no your piece of the cake
Just include the sources, that's all I ask for, unless it's your own work
It doesn't bother me that much, it's just a matter of respect for the author, which you aren't until you're done with your thing.
And I do think that recolors should be not allowed, and if, they should have permissions in a form of an online signature or something, it annoys the fuck out of me
And sorry that you feel offended, I didn't intend that.
