i just can't sleep (4 am in my country)

What media do you use? Pencil, charcoal, something else?
>> No. 120396
I have to agree with the others, you do have quite an impressive thread here. Your style for drawing the characters is beautiful and seems well-mastered, and your smooth shading is a lovely touch and makes your work stand out.

The only thing I personally have to nitpick on is the sense of value you have in your shading. My high school art teacher always said that you need to make your lights light and your darks dark. You seem to be using a lot of midtones in your shading, not that that's necessarily a bad thing. Don't be afraid to accentuate some of the lighter areas or darken the shadowy areas to almost black. You'll find it can bring an added sense of realism to your artwork.

Keep up the good work!
>> No. 120397
Very, very beautiful style. Would love to see colored versions of these.
Do you have a DA account or anything of the like?
>> No. 120401
Beautiful stuff, man, but have you worked with more exaggerated facial expressions yet?

Also, what is up with EqD lately? A lot of the drawfriend submissions are substantially lower quality than usual.
>> No. 120402
>>120394
yep just a pencil (and Propelling pencil / Mechanical pencil / Pacer)
>>120396
yes sometime i'm really struggle with balancing the contrast. but i'm sure it's gonna be better if i keep trying. i'm really need more practise
thank you!
>>120397
actually, i got color amblyopia sort of color blind
i tried some of color work before but it's really didn't work so well. i just have no idea what i'm doing when i try to use some color lol

>>120401

Ah, cool. What do you use to blend/smudge with?

>Critique
There are places in your work where the shading approaches the lineart but doesn't quite reach it, or crosses right over. For example, the rendering on Luna's hair in >>120351 goes over the edge, and the shadows on the wall in >>120353 don't quite reach the figure.

In some cases, this works well as lighting. Like the top of the legs in >>120164. In other cases, though, like for the writer, it doesn't make sense for light or shadow.

When the rendering doesn't quite conform to the edges, it makes the objects seem less solid. Less tangible, less defined. For example, in >>120392, Luna's muzzle. It has a bit of lighting on it, plus her hair lightens up as it approaches the edge. If either the hair or the muzzle had a touch of lightening along the edge, the shape of the face would still be visually clear, and the shape would look much more solid.

The imagery looses depth because shade is a visual cue for layering. If one side of an edge is darker than the other, you get a sense of one object being in front or on top of the other. If the shade is similar on both sides of the edge, you don't get the same sense of depth, and the imagery isn't as bold.

I don't like to smudge my drawings because it's harder to control the tone precisely. It's kind of necessary for charcoal, though. I find a 2mm eraser stick (one of these: http://www.dickblick.com/products/paper-mate-tuff-stuff-eraser-stick/ ) is great for sharpening up edges (Especially where the tone goes over the lines where I don't want it to).

Anyway, I talk too much. I hope it helps some. Sorry if it's hard to make sense of. You have some really wonderful work here: your line art clean and formal, and I like your use of dramatic shadows (particularly on the writer).

Really love what you're doing with the shading, especially in the bottom left corner there. It's doing a good job of letting the image pop.
Can't wait to see if finished. Keep up the good work!

I uh, coudn't resist the urge to try and color these. Don't think I did a very good job. Creating line-art for shaded sketches like this is outside of my area of expertise so I had to do without.

My apologies for butchering these with my feeble attempts at improval.
>> No. 120991

wow! I really love the shading you did in her hair, The shade you used matches the colors there supposed to represent perfectly. It's like someone took an old black&white photo of Cadence.
