Hello there!

I am Manatee, you might remember me from such classics as "my last thread" or "the thread before that"

I try to draw pony every now and then. Sometimes they end up looking vaguely ponyshaped, and that's good enough for me.

You can also find me here:

I'm not really good at requests, but I'm always open for suggestions. It's mostly because I'm really bad at promising stuff.

Critiques, questions and any chat is welcome. It got a bit lonely in my last threads. I wanna be more social around here, but I'm not super good at starting conversations and stuff.

No, I don't need a new thread because the other autosaged, but because I ragequit and deleted it.

But I really do like the community here on /art/ and I'll do my best to contribute positively.

Hiiii! Yes, a bit lonely, perhaps. Heh. But it's okay, I've got good friends around these parts anywho. Not that I wouldn't love some extra company!

Some f-tard decided he didn't like Darkly posting in here and on dA, so he threw a bunch of hate his way. Enough for him not to want to hang around anymore.

His tumblr, too.

Why have I not been commenting on your work? This stuff is awesome. Blargh.

I feel like posting something here again =) I've been away for a while and been drawing other things. OCs and stuff. This one is on fire

>> No. 111478
You may wanna have that looked at.

The flames are great. The smoke looks flat, it's not very cloudy looking. The lines are a bit lumpy, but I think that actually makes it better.

I zoomed in to take a look at the fire, and that's when I saw the veins in the eyes... and now I have to wipe diet Coke off my screen, thank you very much. :3

Thanks! The drawing is pretty lazy and quick. I'm trying to make the lumpy lines work to my benefit. You'll see more stylized lumpy space princess lineart tomorrow and in two minutes on MidwestBrony's collaborative pass-around canvas. (which you should totally contribute to)

Finally something I can post here! It's my own OC, so I reckon it's okay, even though it was requested by someone else.

Yes, this is how it will look like if I ever tried ridin' the waves. I finally managed to draw some water too!

Hay! I really like you art, how long have you been doing it for? I would love it if you could do something with my pony Roaming. Heres a bit of info

His name is Roaming, or Roamin'. His cutie mark is a brainstrom (like a brain with a lightnig bolt). He likes racing in the rain, and in his spare time he likes to write. He also is very curious and adventurous but he is also easily distracted.. He is very honest and will say what needs to be said, and sometimes says inappropriate things.He lives in Cloudsdale but doesn't spend much time indoors, he usually just explores Everfree and sits on the clouds watching the other ponies and writing. He doesn't really have any friends he is usually a bit socially awkward. Thanks. Cant wait to see what you can do. Thanks again :3

Heya! I've been at it for about nine months =) Thank you so much for the kind words.

I'll see what I can do with your pony. I'm honest whenever someone asks =)
You'll have to be patient, though. I'm going away for a couple of weeks.

I tried to draw something today, but only this came out. This happens to everyone once in a while, right?
>> No. 113365
You, sir, are most definitely not alone.

This is an excellent portrayal of the eternal inner conflict of pony: the horror of existence weighed against the horror of non-being.

The muted pattern applied to the figure, obviously insprired by early work of the arts-and-crafts movement, creates a gentle backdrop for the weighty themes expressed by the deformation of the central figure. The secondary figures, two of which are located in the background and a third placed in the lower right foreleg, compliment these themes by invoking the presence of the outsider. They are not truly a part of the primary figure's world, but observe it from without. All together, the piece invokes the ever-looming presence of the anima, and dares the viewer to ask whether it is fair to neglect the questions raised by the work.

Something about the neck seems off... I think it has something to do with the way it connects to the body, I'm not sure.

I really like her mane!

I'm back ... Sorta. I won't be able to draw for a couple more days, but I was just wondering if you were still here at all? If you still are, please say howdy or something and I'll draw your OC =)

Hi! You still doing requests? If you are, I'd love one of Four Block, my OC.

I'm sorry, sort of in a massive art block now, so won't take any more requests at the moment.
>> No. 115168

Aw that is a shame. I've looked through the thread though. Your art is wonderful! Seems like I've spotted a few featured in several drawfriends on Equestria Daily.
>> No. 115174
Awww, thanks =] I only think the top image was ever featured there. I haven't been in there for months but it sounds like they focus mostly on painted stuff?

I mostly only do OCs now and I'm really bad with requests, so I donno how interesting this thread is anymore.
>> No. 115181
Truthfully, I think your work would get featured, but EqD isn't too kind to OCs in general unless they're from a glorified fanfiction, from what I understand.

I hope this thread doesn't go away because I love your stuff. I'm gonna share some with a friend on DA so he can see your work too. He used to be a regular here. Goes by the name Darkly.

Dear Manatee:

Thank you for being an artist who uses backgrounds.

bein a vous,

No, really. Backgrounds don't have to be super-elaborate or complicated, and a little bit goes a long way, yet there are so many artists who just can't seem to be bothered with them... I salute thy diligence!

File 134827675660.png - (336.43KB , 435x335 , originsjjsksksal.png )
It's funny because I reused that background from a comic I did earlier. Also, I'm usually waaaaaay too lazy to do backgrounds on most of my stuff.
Still, thanks. I'm pretty bad at drawing inanimate objects, but I manage some things in the pony style.

Manatee! I didnt know you had your own thread! :D Your art is awesome! If you're not too busy, could you draw patchy for me? :D (i didnt draw this one but its my only pic of her with the proper cutie mark and color scheme :P)

YES! I was going to do that anyway as a thanks =] I'll get on it in the morning.

Yay! :D thanks!

Well, if it isn't any trouble, I might have one of two that I might ask you to do? [Choose one]
Only difference is basically the mane.
If you want a challenge, I can give one.
If you don't want/get around to it, I understand.

Hmm alright then.

But is there a specific reason why? Don't have to tell me. [Is there a post saying your done with requests? If there is, I missed it.]
>> No. 116892
Well, yeah. I'm passing on most requests lately. =) I'm oficially not doing them, but Patchwork's was more of an art trade and the other one was for a good friend. I'm really sorry.
