#Canon #OCs #Discussion #Critique wanted

Sometimes I like to make pony fan art. And I figure since this place exists I'd like to post them here. Mostly for critiques, any kind will do. Regular discussion about whatever is also encouraged.
Who knows. Maybe I'll be able to get myself up to commission level!

Look up Tiberium infected trees from command and conquer. They are basically crystalized trees.

My ponies built a dystopian republic with heavy tanks, particle cannons, and war zeppelins. Dont worry too much about the hand/hoof thing.

Took at stab at drawing a male pony's face from the front. It's not too bad I don't think. I kind of took the front view of a horse face and just made it more squat. And of course shoved the eyes to the front because logic.

Critique always welcome.

I think it looks solid. Your style comes through in them, but it doesn't detract from the image as a whole.

Seriously though, like nice work on this whole thread. I hit the wrong tab and this was the first thread I came across. But it's all spot on

Adult Feather Nebula. I'm not quite sure which parent she looks like the most. I tried to not make her look like a clone of either and in that I think I succeeded.

FiM-Style remakes of G1 characters? An honest effort to figure out how to draw male ponies right? Dude, this just may be my favourite thread on /art/ right now.

Regarding crystal trees, the first thing I thought of was Julia Set fractals ( )... I'm kinda weird like that, tho. X3

>I tried to not make her look like a clone of either and in that I think I succeeded.
Confirmed. :3

>Critique (better late than never):
These expressions are great. Seriously.

The facial proportions and the shape of the jaw look spot-on in terms of show-accuracy.

Stallion's ears tend to be less curved along the inward edge, and the outside edge meet the head at a point level with the middle of the eye (this is more obvious in side views... when facing forward, colts in the show usually have the head tilted up or down a bit which shifts everything around).

The arcs of nostrils are upsidown, compared to how they are in the show (for both mares and stallions).

Anyway, hope this helps some. Awesome work: Luna+Scorpan is just adorable, and Rarewolf made me lol out loud. :3

The flatness in color you're going for is really exemplified in this illustration, with all the different colors creating detail and depth because of, not in spite of, the lack of it. I also like the color choices in general.

One thing that seems to evade FiM's art more and more is the horsey nature of the ponies, and even though your art is more stylized at times it fills that gap rather well. This portrait especially -- it's difficult to illustrate the corporeal nature of a real animal, and the detail of the legs, the muzzle, the natural look of the hair, and the feeling of motion give these shapes of color body and life.

I can't speak for what you're actually going for, but I can speak for how I interpret things: I feel like the left foreleg's form could be implied a bit more clearly, perhaps by extending the shading across the bottom edge of the hoof slightly. I think you're probably right not to put a dark line there, but I can't be sure. Lacking the line does help keep the face more detailed relative to the rest of the drawing.

I don't want to discourage your stylistic choices at all, but I would consider making the pupil a darker color. I do like to give the pupils color as well, but when I make it too light I sometimes feel like the pony looks blind. Keep in mind I'm particular and this is a somewhat common stylistic practice.

Trying out a new style. Which is basically just experimenting with the feather tool on shaded areas.

I'm a cheesepie fan and drew this foal character to show my appreciation of the ship.

I've called her Mascarpone but that name is up in the air. It may not be the most fitting name and I'd like some opinions on the matter. It might help me with the cutie mark as well!

cutie mark of rubber chicken on a ballon? Maybe too much. Maybe a.... huh. I guess it depends on what her occupation is...

A sock cutie mark makes sense. I should probably change her name. I doesn't necessarily need to be cheese related.

Revisiting an OC(and an offspring)that needs to be tweaked. I've given her the name Dusty Nebula but her color scheme has changed so much I'm not even sure the name works anymore.

I'm working out how to draw anthro ponies. (Not the humanxpony satyr abominations) Because I'm hoping one day in the future that I'll be able to do a comic or something.

Females are easy enough I think. I need to get back into practice of human torsos, especially males. And I'm not quite sure how to deal with stallion heads. Since they are naturally broader, it might look weird on a human neck. Unless their necks are huge.

Hey've I've got a question.

Does anyone in the world know how to draw a pony's legs crossed when they're standing upright like a person? In the picture on the side, basically like examples 5 and 7. I'm finding really hard to do with the anatomy of a pony's hind legs.
