#Traditional #Canon #OCs #Gallery #Critique wanted

Welcome to my gallery and critic studio! I'm an amateur artist, and by that I mean I have no concept of depth or flow in my drawings; they're kind of just doodles.

I would like to make this a more serious hobby (Also get into digital drawing), and once I get back state side I want to pursue this even further. But for now I'll stick to /art/ for pointers and get people to tell me what it is that I'm doing wrong or right. I'll try to post art to this gallery often, but that's not for sure. I'll try my best to be active. :)

To kick off this gallery, could I get some critique on this Rarity pic I drew. Thank you!

I saw what you posted in the how do I pony thread. Please don't fear the reaper my child, don't feel intimidated. Should you require assistance from any of us please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you Sovereign, I will. Any thoughts on how I can improve this Rarity pic?

Here's one more pic of an OC of mine. Feel free to give me feed back on it too. Thx!

the OC is great. You've obviously got the whole shading thing down, but she should probably look in the direction she's flying. the wierd ball on top of the back leg is a little off too. and I just love the rarity pic.

Here's another demo pic. This one's kind of sad...
Thx for the feedback!

It's been a while since I posted art (too distracted with S4 stuff), but here's a little something I drew today. Critique please! I would really like to improve.

Apologies to Ubisoft and Bethsada for blatant ripoffs :P

Aaand my gallery goes back to the top...
Here's another demo pic. Hope I get some critique before the gallery gets buried again... *sigh*

Excuse the hasty drawing. Christmas kind of crept up on me but I really wanted a picture for the holiday.

Merry Christmas /art/!

That pinkie is awesome.

These look really nice for pen and paper drawings, not quite as smooth as digital but I think it has a certain personality to it.

Only problem I can outright point out is maybe consistency, I can see you winged it a little bit with the celestia and pinkie; while the rear end looks great on the pinkie (lol) it takes too long to reach the front, which makes it look strange compared to say your Rarity pic. The Celestia pic looks nice, but the eyes aren't proportional to where she's looking at, the eye on the right is noticeably bigger than the left.

This could be more opinion than advice, but another thing I notice is there's alot of thick jagged lines and eraser marks, try using the pencil a little softer, going over the same line a few times softly instead of having one thick line.

Since you said it was more of a rushed doodle, I don't have anything negative to say about it. It's a very cute pic. :>

Two best twins! I could use some advice on drawing water, preventing crooked scenery and how much background clutter is necessary.

I know there are plenty of other, more professional galleries on /art/ that ya'll would rather look at, but... you know, I could use some help to improve.

This is just a jumble of practice drawings I drew up to help me visualize pony anatomy better. And of course I'd love to have some feedback.

Well well, new record. Two pictures out in one day. Hope ya'll like it.
All that faded grey stuff at the top are failed cirrus clouds btw.

I thought it was about time I drew some more background ponies, as well as drawing anything. I've been lazy recently.

Any advice on the shading?

her head's a little flat but the shading is amazing as usual

Sort of a villain justification picture. First time drawing changelings as you can clearly see.

It's not shipping, it's just cute.

I realize there are shading inconsistencies(namely their manes), but I thought it would look weird with them being almost completely grey, plus, because I don't use color, the two of them might appear to blend.

So... yea.

This would be the second Rarity I've drawn. That tells you something... Oh yea, Sweetie Belle's here to.

There's something about her eyes and muzzle that just isn't right that I can't figure out. If you nail it, please tell me; I want my days of weird shaped pony muzzles to end!

Quick announcement! I've noticed that my pictures consistently squash when transferred to digital form. Not wanting to have a gallery full of non-representative examples of my work, I will try to fix the problem and will likely transfer them all to a new gallery. Just wondering, does anyone think I should, in the transfer, leave everything as is (like order of pics, messages accompanying them etc) or should I overhaul it? Just wondering the opinion of the community.

Could I get this thread removed? I have a new gallery and don't need this one any more. Thx mods!
