Well, for one, you could make it so there's more than just pure white and red dominating at least ninety percent of the piece. Contrast is always nice, but eating candy all the time only rots your teeth. You need some scale of normality or the contrast is lost. Not sure what's happening at the bottom of the picture, either. The characters seem to be melting away into the mist. Maybe I could tell if there were more colors, but it makes it look too much like they're just half underwater, provided the water is red and so is the sky.

Not to sound like I'm ragging on your picture here, but I can't tell who the centerpiece is supposed to represent. It's obvious you tried to make the three alicorns in the background to be the three alicorns from the show, but suddenly there's an unexplained addition to the Justice League here. Speaking of the background alicorns, Luna's moon pendant seems to have fused with her skin, that and Cadence's wings look kind of sketchy. On the topic of wings, I'm not sure where you're going with the rest of the characters. They look like they've got four massive spider legs sticking from their spines and it's creeping me out.

In the words of Lt. Columbo, "Oh, and one more thing." The line consistency is bugging me. There are parts of the spider legs that have sharp and defined edges connecting to the stalks that consist of fuzzy and blurred forms. It's really distracting, so you might want to make them one unifying style or it's going to draw everyone's eyes to it.

Really hope that helps in some way. I wish you the best of luck with Equestria Daily. Seems quite a few people here revere it enough to consider it some great goal to have their art featured there. Maybe it's some new thing with all the artists I'm just slow with picking up on. Anyway, have a nice day now. Hope you succeed.

A tribute to the rivalry between the two magical unicorns. i am also considering sending this to equestia daily so i would very much appreciate any feed back. Thanks!

The lines on Trixie are all the same width. This doesn't seem to be the case with Twilight. Also, Trixie's mane is tucked into her cape.
>> No. 120193

Hello guys. First of all, I'm sorry if this is not the right place, but I thought it would fit best.
I'm looking for nice patterns for making pony plushies. I want to begin making them, and the only real nice one I found was Violet Valley ones, but atm I don't have an international credit card to buy her patterns on Etsy. So I was wondering, maybe somepony there got some nice free patterns?
Thanks a lot in advance! :3

Wasn't sure if this kinda thing belonged in /pic/ or elsewhere, but oh well.

Someone mind making that big grey area in the middle/lower-half transparent, like a lotta .png's are? That's boxed in with that silver bar? My knowledge of GIMP and digital art is rudimentary at best, and I'd appreciate a lending hand. The plan is to have a this template to slap on top of cover-art that'll change with new 'issues' of the comic book.

Thanks in advance?

Close enough, thanks a bunch. I can use some mask layers to fix up that upper section, but looks like that big grey box section came out perfect. Thanks again.

Hello ponychan. I don't usually come here, but I thought I'd share with you some stuff I've been doing. What do you think?

The animation is well done! The first one made me sad at the end, even though the contents of the note made me laugh. The second one, I was expecting much worse, you pulled that off well. The third one, well... now I am interested in seeing "Scent of a Woman."

I've got nothing against /mlp/ and sometimes browse it.

I'm Alasou and thanks to you, I've now a deviant art and a tumblr.

It's over here :

I won't take anymore request (at least for a moment). I plan to start commission and have things to do before.

(Oh... And english isn't my native language and 95% of what I know, i've learned it by myself. So feel free to tell me where I'm wrong. )

Event overview:

Hello again, /art/. There's another /fic/-/art/ write-off happening, and you're all invited!

For those out of the loop, the competition is quite simple: prompt → art → fic. First, everyone decides on a worded prompt to act as the event's theme. Artists draw pictures from the worded prompt, and then writers write stories to the pictures.

The art round starts Sun, 09 Dec 2012 06:00 UTC and lasts for 5 days, ending Fri, 14 Dec 2012 06:00 UTC. For those too lazy to do the conversion, if you make an account on the site (with the correct timezone settings), all the times will display in your local timezone.

Worded prompt suggestions start Sun, 09 Dec 2012 04:00 UTC, last an hour, and are followed by a one hour voting round.

But why should you participate? Well for one, there's a whole bunch of writers that are going to write stories to the submitted artworks. Having someone write a story inspired (even if just a little) by your work is pretty awesome.

Woo! Winner of the Coveted Wooden Spoon!

I really, really, thought there were going to be more entries, and most of them were going to be ponies sitting at a bar depressed. So I thought hey, what would be different? Chinese New Year!

Then I thought, you know what's impossibly hard to draw? Ambitiously detailed chinatown backgrounds! So it got scaled back tremendously. Then there were rendering issues with Spike on the milk carton, and post production fixes that made the color worse...

I'm somewhat amused by the preliminary pencil sketches that were then cut apart, rearranged, scotch taped together, then traced to build a foundation for the charcoal work, though.

But I should have just drawn Lyra sitting morosely, sipping a cocktail.

Oh, and SpiritShine sneaks another one past us. I was digging that desaturated palette, decided to kill Spike because of it...

I liked your entry as well. It's certainly unique, and I certainly didn't expect an entry of that sort. And also I'm biased because I'm chinese lol~ I also expected more "ponies being lonely at the bar" entries as well, and I just KNEW someone would do something Celestia and Luna related haha

I tried to draw using the various tutorials provided by /art, but the best I could do was this, which was drawn out of frustration.
