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: manateemckenzie.deviantart.com

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.

Also, I'm thinking of opening a "three pane comic" collaborative acivity thread here. I did one before, but it had borked up rules and I could never really get anypony but my closer friends into it, and even then just by pestering them. It would be nice to have more cool threads like that on here.

This drawing I did for a very good friend. Contrary to popular belief, there is nothing racist about this picture. =| Why does the internet always jump to the worst conclusions?

Grrr, if I knew who it was I would gladly plant a baseball bat beween their jaws. I'm lucky enough to have other means to reach him and have a nice chat.

This drawing took me a while. I think it's the most complicated thing so far. All those body types.
Supposedly they are fighting about who has the rights to bake and sell apple pies and cupcakes.
I drew it for Blinki as a prize for second place in a competition I held at http://fizzyfans.deviantart.com, a fan group for a very special G1 pony. Because G1 ponies are very good ponies too.

Flutterpony concepts.

This is so far off >.>

Things I need to do: Figure out leg section size, perspectives and animation.
Neck: Pointy looks sharp and evil. Rosedust is firm, but caring.
Hairy abdomen looks like bee. NOOOO!!! NOT THE BEEEES!

I'm gonna have to ask you guys for advice, suggestions or even to make your own attempt at this =) Plan is to make this a viable pony species. Casual flutterponies will be closer to a normal pony/changeling drone.

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

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

You, sir, are most definitely not alone.

>Critique
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!

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.

Dear Manatee:

Thank you for being an artist who uses backgrounds.

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!

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.
