whenever i get to the head i always make it too wide or narrow.its like a bad habbit i cant shake...Help?
>> No. 120409
In the guide you posted the head is fine, but the body is too short.

Is the OP your work? If not, well, it's kind of hard to offer advice or suggestions without an example to work with.

Is this any good? xD

Since im just starting out,i dont have the skill to draw from my mind and have to look off exsisting pictures ;_;
>> No. 120393
>Is this any good?
I'd say so. The lines are pretty tight, the face is expressive and pose is dynamic. If this is "just starting out", then this is a pretty buckin' good start.

I'm not gonna get into any constructive comments... at this point, I think you just need to keep practicing and anything I have to say now would probably be outdated in a week or so.

>i dont have the skill to draw from my mind and have to look off exsisting pictures
Ref images will always be your very best friend. As you get more practice you start to depend on them less and less, but you never really get rid of them entirely.

People talk about drawing from their imagination, but it's actually kind of a myth. The imagination is actually really vague, unless you've done a lot of work to familiarize yourself with a particular subject. Option B is to study or develop a technical process for something, like using a character skeleton to draw a figure in any pose, or using vanishing points for perspective, but this is less "drawing from the imagination" and more "formalized methodology." Techniques. Fundamental skills. Whatever you want to call it.

I talk too much, hope this helps some. Looking forward to seeing more. :3

Heya /art/!

So I've recently tried to get back into drawing, and what better topic than small candy colored horses?

This one's the CMC as a Battlefield 3 squad, added twist in to fill for 4th member. Any comments or criticism is greatly appreciated! Full view is:

Yes, /art/, it is I, CaptainSteve. No one here will remember me, since it's been a long time since my departure, and the only people I recognise are Carnifex, Infernal and Dat_Dalek. Seems the old guard have moved along and a new set of fine artists have made their home, so maybe an old /art/ist could settle in for a little bit? Have no fears, I have no intentions of going "when I was your age...", I haven't been gone long enough to have a zimmerframe now.

I mostly do traditional art, and some digital when I'm doing something big, and really ponies and Monster Hunter are my gig.

All requests are free, but if I feel I've improved enough I may open commissions for bigger things.

My deviantART is for anyone interested in browsing my art.

Home sweet home.

Cool drawing

Not very familiar with MH, since the only one I've played is the PSP one.

That wyvern reminds me of one of the upcoming pokemon legendaries.

I'm working on some stylistic stuff and I need test subjects.

Post up refs or detailed descriptions and I'll doodle you guys some pones. I can also design custom OCs if someone wants one? I love making characters.

I don't know much about blender. except that it's extremely popular. my guess is, anything you want to know is in youtube and various forums.

Hello there /art/. Now I am making an open request which any, and preferably many artists to respond to. I am writing a story and I need some cover art to be made for it. The story itself is focused around Fluttershy and is sad. The reason art is so hard to find, though, is that it is humanized. If anyone is interested in helping me out, please respond A.S.A.P.

Hey, PonyChan. Frederick here.

This time, I'm trying to get back into art, and it's been a while. At the present moment, I don't have the benefit of a scanner, and so, photographic uploads will have to do. Mais, helas, c'est la vie, non?

Today, I've drawn Rarity (though, technically, it could be said that last night I drew Rarity, but such is irrelevant), and given her a guitar. Why?

Why not?

Before anybody asks, it is beyond artistic license for me to dictate how hooves work on guitars. Your guess is as good as mine.

So, what's /art/ think? Any good?

I have made a few minor edits to address the following details:

The ambiguity of the disjunction between the back and the guitar strap.

The ear.

As well as a few minor changes to lines.

Hey all,

I'm much more of a craftswoman with sewing etc than drawing but I occasionally try. I want some opinions please :) On two things:

What should my bf's OC be called!?

Its based off a piece I found online but I can't find the artist name to credit them so sorry!! If you know then please add their name so I can credit!! Couldn't find on DA
>> No. 120224
Well, it certainly looks like you've got the characters' anatomy down. I don't know how much of it, if any, was copied (or traced) from reference, but the faces and body structure look fairly show accurate. So I don't think you have anything to worry about there.

As for your bf's OC, whatever the cutie mark you gave him says about his special talent could be a key indicator.

All in all, nice job, and don't stop trying!

Hi there! I'm going to make things more organized this time.

I take all critiques, so fire away.

I will also take all commissions. Anything that's a little too violent or NSFW will merely go on my deviantart rather than on this thread.

I dabble in both traditional and digital mediums, although I have been working on my digital as of late.

my gallery is at

if you want to privately contact me, use that or [email protected]

yes, it may be rather expressionless. And yes, it does almost seem like Twilight has been beheaded.

But, to be honest, I'm still just getting used to GIMP and my new intuos.
