#Traditional #Digital #Alterations #Canon #OCs #Gallery #Taking requests #Taking commissions #Critique wanted
Are you intimidated by the good artists out there?

Do you like self deprecating humor that may or may not be true in regards to my art?

Are your requests satisfied with pencil sketches uploaded using my webcam, touched up in Photoshop Elements, and delivered with a hefty heaping of snarky sarcasm?

If you've answered yes to at least two of the three questions, then look no further than FoxTrott's Sketchy Thread!

If you want something sketched, post it here, and I may or may not get to it. References are always appreciated. If I really like it, I'll color it, but otherwise don't expect too much.

This is the revised edition because I wanted to use the shiny new tags system. The last thread was also getting a bit too big for my poor little 3DS.

1) Post your request. If it's with an OC, references are always appreciated.
2) Wait. Sketches generally take less than a day, but if I'm busy, expect a standard wait of 2-5 days.
3) Get sketch. Higher qualities are available upon request.
4) Requests will be done on a first come, first serve basis. I reserve the right to close requests if it gets too crowded.
5) If you think you were ignored, either email me or bother me in this thread.

If you want something commissioned, please email me at [email protected] and leave a note here in my thread. Commissions will always be higher quality than sketches, will be inked, and can be colored.

Reaction pic sets are currently the only type of commissions I am taking. Sets can be anywhere from 10 to 50 pictures. You can request specific emotions or pics, or let me decide. Payment will be discussed through email, although I will only use PayPal for transactions.

*checks around* Ehm... Hi.

I'm a reviewer and author back at /fic/, and I was looking for something very specific. I have an OCxMjölna shipfic project, but it's impossible for me to find anything for a cover. For the character:

In the post there's the Pony generator version of Drakkar, the OC (the closest to a reference I can give you). His cutie mark is the roaring head of a bear looking towards his face (using the reference, the bears head is looking to the left) And now for the big problem: Drakkar wears a bear pelt over him. You know, like viking berserks. The upper jaw and head serves as a helmet, the rest of the fur covers his body, and both arms cross around his neck like a scarf, keeping it from falling. I'm trying to think of details, if you think you need some more information about him, I'll try to fill what you need. Thanks in advance.
>> No. 115019
So, you want me to make a cover? Or just a drawing of the character?
>> No. 115046

Oh, right, sorry about that, I got distracted trying to give as much info as possible but then... Also, sorry for taking long to reply (different timezones and all)

To be honest, a cover art would be ideal, but I think that'll be asking too much. If you feel like doing a cover art with Drakkar and Mjölna, be my guest (not too cheesy if you do). However, I'd be satisfied with Drakkar's drawing. I leave the choice to you.

I'm in Digital Media 1 at school, so we're working on Photoshop right now. Here's something I did in ~45 minutes. It's the first time I drew totally digitally in a long time. @[email protected]
>> No. 115723
Looks sweet! I take it you had ref's?

The almost-white underneath the black areas is visually distracting. I'd comment on the shading, but... well, in ~45 minutes you get what you get, right? :3

I love the highlights on the visor: an understated detail that gives a nice sense of glossiness.
>> No. 115730
I referenced it directly from a pic of Master Chief, yeah. I couldn't do something that nicely from memory.

I spent most of the class period messing around with different settings, so that's why I left all the white space there. The shading's pretty cruddy, too; mostly just the burn and dodge tools.

Thank you always, and it's good to see you back, WhiteFox. <3

Foxty, come on... you're not even trying anymore, there was plenty of description. I mean, what part of "silver hair and red fur with a sword and shield buttattoo" did you not understand?

...Wait. Was that last part as in, she has a butt-tattoo of a sword and shield, or she has a sword and a butt-tattoo of a shield? Also, does she have a cutie mark, or just the tattoo?

Wait, wait... time out. I lost track of who I was actually paraspriting. Give me a minute.

Thank you, as always, White Fox~ I tried to make it look pretty creepy.
That is Pinkie's cutie mark! The idea behind the cutiecabra is that it steals cutie marks from ponies, making them a blank flank and causing them to lose their special talent. It's also the first cutie mark I thought of.

So... a filly Cadence playing with filly Apple Bloom?
Or deformed Cadence playing with filly Apple Bloom?

That's pretty cool!

Haven't seen you on skype much. Or you haven't responded or something.

Anyway, I want to discuss another commission if you'd be willing. No rush on dates.

I want a pic of my OC and my current girlfriends OC (The Pic. You can leave out the goggles and metal wings. Her eyes are purple), in a romantic setting, like a diner or fancy restaurant, with a table and a milkshake between them. Their tails should be interwined (as is common in romantic fics) and their eyes interlocked.
It's kind of a present for her for our anniversary, and I want it to look good. If you could, write 'For Maria' in the corner.

I realize the effort this requires. I'd be willing to pay a full $15-$20 due to the nature of the piece (And that I haven't given you the tip for last one yet)

You're opinion would be welcome. Also, no worry on time constraints. It can be a few days late, so don't be afraid to pace yourself out.

Also, do you do digital? I'll admit, I wasn't overly fond of the marks the inking process left after final editing on the first one. Not a big deal if there's no other way around it.

Drop me a line when you get the chance!

Suave, courteous, polite, mischievous, maybe a little smug, but also very bound by the duties he's given, carrying them out to the greatest of his ability. Very much a sarcastic joker with those he is closer too, his tongue perhaps having a bit more of an edge to it than most at that point, but he is sensitive enough to know when to stop such jokes. He has a keen sense of the emotions of those around him, and keeps it that way in order to use them more effectively for his own purposes. After all, the better an emotional connection you can establish with the one you feed from, the better you feed.

However, this emotional closeness occasionally comes back to bite him, leading him to sometimes be either too protective or too bold, and he ends up making a mistake in some way that could ruin every thing. Given his now greater degree of mental freedom in his guarding of Princess Pupa, on some levels, he desires a true connection with another, not only for feeding's sake, but to fill this new growing need for something more within him. He also knows that such is against changeling nature and against the duties he should be carrying out, and so there is a great amount of emotional strain within him.

He also has a love for appletinis. =P

How does one vector, anyway? I heard that it has something to do with the pen tool.

I heard that it has something to do with the fact that you can resize them up or down, and there wont be any blurring from the resizing and what not.
>> No. 117992
Vectors are done using mathematics and paths. While raster images are done by the use of pixels put into whatever spot you place them. Vectors can be infinitely scaled up or down with no blurring or difference in quality. While the MLP community loves to use the word "vector" what they are actually giving you is a vector image that has been exported in a raster format (because ponychan doesn't do SVG (Scaleable Vector Graphic) files) To do vectors you need a program meant for vectors like illustrator or Inkscape. Photoshop and SAI are capable of paths that can be scaled until you export them, but neither are capable of exporting in SVG. So in you could make an image with vectors that was 1000x1000 then scale it to 100000x100000 and export it in png with no difference in quality. Exporting a large png file insures you get good quality and you will still be able to scale it down to whatever size you want to retain most of the quality depending how far you are scaling down, though 100000x100000 is just an absurd example; you don't actually export in more than 10k or so.
>> No. 117995
A vector, in strictly mathematical terms, is composed of three things: A point, a direction, and a magnitude. With vector art, you place points to define the path of a line. The direction and magnitude is defined by dragging a little handle around, and that's what defines the curve of a line between two points.

Advantages of vectors:
-Infinitely scalable. Since everything is defined with math, the program can just multiply all the numbers to make a larger image.
-Fine control, smooth curves. Since the path of a line is defined using handles, you can tweak the curve of the line precisely by wiggling them around as much as you like, at your convenience. Since everything is scalable, you can zoom in to absurdiculous magnification too.
-Transformations. Again because the paths are defined by math, you can scale/skew/rotate a shape all you like, without any loss of image quality.

It's technical.

On a piece of paper, I can draw an organic, fluid, wiggly little line with a flick of the wrist. In vectors, I'd have to lay down a dozen points and fiddle with the handles for hours to get the same results.

I use a dip pen to ink on paper... I can control the weight of a line with pressure, so things like tapered lines are intuitive and done more by feel than anything. Any change in line weight has to be done manually with vectors. Usually, this means laying down two paths for each "line", and tweaking the distance between the paths to change the width of the line.

As a result, organic and fluid lines that can be really easy on paper are really hard in vectors, while "perfect" shapes (like circles and straight lines), that are really hard on paper are really easy in vectors.

Another major downside is that everything in a vector has to be made as a distinct object. Gradients are a pain: you'd have to lay out and arrange every individual shade of color as a separate piece. Programs like Illustrator can add gradients automatically, but then you have to fuss with settings and controls.

Objects layer on top of each other, and this can get restrictive. For example: on a pony's head, the mane comes out from behind the ear, and layers over the neck. The ear is an object overtop of the mane, and the mane is an object overtop of neck. Since objects have to be either on top or underneath each other, some things can be a real pain to arrange. For example, Jasper (My OC) has a neck cloth tied so that one part comes out from under another, then tucks on top of the part it comes out from. This is simple to draw, but in vectors, it'd take a lot of fussing because a part can't be ontop of something in one place and underneath it somewhere else. I'd have to make it in several pieces, and arrange them very carefully to hide any seams between the various parts.

Anyway! I talk too much. As much as I complain, getting nice lines in vectors becomes easier with practice and experience. Me, I'm too comfortable with a pencil, so I'd rather just draw a line than fuss with points and wiggle handles around, but vectors can go by quickly and easily once you get comfortable with them.

I talk too much! Back to the sketchbook for me.

Vectors are good for lineart. I know a few artists who will sketch, vector the lineart, then color/shade in raster below it for perfect lineart. Its referred to as "Voxel" artwork If I recall correctly.
>> No. 118020
>Its referred to as "Voxel" artwork, If I recall correctly.
"Vexel," actually: vector pixel. Slight difference: vexels are done with bitmap graphic programs with vector-based tools, such as GIMP and Photoshop. I suppose that doing the graphics in a purely vector program, such as Flash, Inkscape, or Illustrator, then rasterizing the image and editing it as a bitmap could also be considered vexel graphics... generally, though, vexel art looks like vector art but was created entirely in a bitmap program as a bitmap image.

Voxels, on the other hand, are volumetric pixels (And pixel is a portmanteau of picture cell). Voxels are, basically, a rasterization of a 3D object. The only real difference between voxels and pixels is that the cells are 3D rather than 2D. In 3D graphics, voxel's are good for things that take up volume but aren't definite, solid shapes. They're used for extremely high quality smoke, fire, clouds, sea spray, etc.

It's also used for 3D interpretations of pixel art, such as this:
I love this movie. Thank you for giving me an reason to link it. :3
High-res voxels are basically something like that, but with much, much smaller cubes (in some cases, nanometers on a side).

The big floaty blob at around 0:40, the water from the fire-hydrant at 1:45, pacman at 1:04, and the final explosion are all done with voxels. Most of the rest is done with 3D objects that are really blocky, but they're not actually voxels... they're just blocky 3D objects.

To explain that: Minecraft also doen't use voxels either, it just has 3D blocks with low res textures. The blocks can still move and rotate freely in space. Actual voxels are cubic cells of a 3D grid and each cell is either filled or empty. A voxel object fills a certain number of cells and as the object moves, it occupies different voxels. The object moves within the voxels, but the voxels themselves do not actually move.

For another comparison: A vector line fills a certain quantity of pixels, and altering the line changes what pixels it occupiew. The grid of pixels itself doesn't actually move, the line moves within the grid.

I talk too much! Sorry, that happens with subjects I'm in love with. X3

>Vectors seem to be good for drawing simpler ponies, heh
Well, you can still do extremely complicated objects in vectors. They're particularly good for mechanical design, like high-detail spaceships or elaborate architecture.

My philosophy, though, is that it doesn't matter what tools you use, it's how well you can use them. It's not like any of them are inherently superior to any others.

Some tools are better for certain things, though, so the choice of tools really just depends on the artist's objectives, priorities, and personal taste.

Again! I talk too much! Back to the sketchbook for me.

A question, old boy.
How might you handle a pastiche of the works of Sydney Paget?

Hey look, it's Deadpool as a pony. Sorta. I'm working on vector work, it's hard.

Whoa! Sorry for the late reply, dude, I haven't been keeping a good eye on this thread recently. X-x

I'm not very familiar with him, but I could definitely try. A quick Google shows some pretty, well, pretty artwork.

Something I did... fairly recently, I think.

All the time, dude, just check the tags. xD;

Then would you honor me with some of your awesome art? :D

My oc is Ella. I would love it if you could do a pose like that one of dead pool up there, but if you feel like doing something else, go right ahead.

Here's some more reference pics of her. Her hooves are blue with the white of her fur coming over them a bit in little tufts. Of course, I'm not going to be picky with how you do it because it's free art.

Another random pic I did.

Alright, then. I'm broke as a joke so I can't promise you anything more than my admiration and due accreditation.

Here is a story.

It's EQD feature:

In the next chapter, there will be a scene wherein Twilight gazes wistfully over a bridge, and across stream. Can you do a Sydney Paget-esq rendition of that? It needn't be at all detailed, perhaps just her moon lit face gazing wistfully into the darkness. It will be used as a reference, as Doyle did, in the coming chapter. If you don't mind, I might even return asking or more requests under similar guidelines, recreating scenes out of the text.

Now, I know what I'm asking of you. It should be a commission. But, please, consider it a friendly challenge. It might even be a bit of fun!

Hi there ^_^ You drew a picture of my OC back in the holiday time and I was wondering if I could get you to draw another with a spring-type setting. Thanks!

Requests, you say? Ponify this face. It will contribute greatly to our cultural development.
