Hi everypony, I've been drawing lots of ponies lately and also made some OCs, so I thought I'd make a thread and see what you guys think of my stuff!

Right now I'm trying to come up with a better cutie mark for this pony - it's very similar to my other pony's and I'm not sure how much I like it. This girl's name is Love Song and she writes romance novels, so I'm definitely going for a mark that has something to do with hearts. Was thinking perhaps a heart with a quill?

I'm a bit embarrassed to post her and her sister because of their hoof markings...I don't like to stray from canon too much but I simply couldn't resist adding that little touch to them. I've thought that maybe they just dye their coats, but I'm not sure that makes them any less like stupid special snowflake ponies :(

And this is my last of silly OC doodles. I'm really fond of coloring with copic markers and making little pony cutouts - the white one is another pony of mine, Flicker, and the blue is my friend's pony. And then the yellow is Fluttershy of course! She wasn't really a part of the original sketch, which was just the OC ponies, but then later I doodled her and decided I might as well get them all in one picture.

Last but not least, here'sanother Fluttershy cutout. I'm pretty happy with it even if I'm horrible at symmetry...I had a lot of fun coloring her! I haven't been able to take a new picture yet, but I trimmed her up a bit and now she has less icky white spots that didn't get cut out.

>mine countenance whereupon girl instead of filly

This pony is adorable! I'd love to see her sister. I think the hoof markings are cute. I don't get a 'stupid special snowflake' vibe at all. She def still looks like a pony who could appear in the show. As for the cutie mark, heart with a quill sounds awesome. I don't hate the hearts, but they are a little generic.

Drawing more Fluttershy! I always have so much fun with her mane and tail...going to color soon.

And I was curious if anypony here would be interested in commissions for these pony cutouts? I don't think I have a wide enough selection of markers to be able to take many requests right now, but I love making these and thought I'd see if anypony would like to buy them when I have more colors to work with.

Almost done with that Fluttershy I posted before, it took me a while because I completely lost my motivation when I dropped my marker in the middle of coloring :l I tried to turn the splotches on the body into petals, then added more around her...not entirely pleased with them and I'm so angry at myself for being so clumsy, but I guess I'll just have to be more careful next time. I'd like to cut it out eventually like I planned, but I'm in no mood to cut out all those little petals and gluing it all onto something pretty.

but why, those are quite cute and I love them. There is nothing to be embarrassed about.

I have question tho - you draw OCs only? because I would love to see some canon characters in "your style", like Princess Celestia (or, well, Luna). Fluttershy -- >>81736 -- turned out amazing :3
>> No. 82049
>>81835

I just worry about breaking canon too much, or that people might think my OCs are mary-sue ;n; It's a big relief to me that you guys like them!

I haven't drawn many canon ponies aside from Fluttershy, but I hope to draw more of the others soon once I have the right markers. Celestia and Luna are some of my favorite ponies though, so I'll start practicing with them soon :D

I hope this brony doesn't mind that I'm posting this here, since it's basically a redrawn version of his sketch >>81700

For some reason I was really inspired by it - I usually don't do a lot of refined digital art. I couldn't think of a color scheme so I turned the pony into Love Song so I could test out her new cutie mark, and because she so badly wishes to fly. She'd gladly trade her horn for a pair of wings! And just now I realize I've reversed her tail pattern on accident...woops.

SURPRISE I drew more fluttershy

I'm trying to get one of my friends to post her art here on ponychan because she is amazing, but she's being silly and shy. So this happened. But seriously she is a fantastic artist and also the one who inspired me to start working with markers, so I was hoping somepony here could help me encourage her to post her art? Maybe with a bit more eloquence than Fluttershy here :(

Damn dude, you have extremely clean linework. How do you sketch with that much pressure that cleanly?
>> No. 85352
>>85340

why thank you! I've got crazy shaky hands so it's always a bit nerve wracking to make clean lines. It doesn't actually take too much pressure to make them since I use a micron pen, but sometimes extra pressure helps keep my hand steady. I make the final lines clean as possible by turning my page around a lot to make sure I'm going over all my curves at a comfortable angle, and also a good bit of luck. Lots of luck. I've only started inking my pencil sketches for a few weeks now because I've always been afraid of screwing them up.

Been a while since I posted anything here! I got some new markers and I'm hoping to draw Rarity soon, but for now I just doodled up my...uh, ponysona, I suppose. Her cutie mark is a Z because my special talent is sleeping forever and generally being lazy and worthless. Obviously I am best pony.

Lost my phone and had to get a new one, and unfortunately this new one takes god awful pictures...despite being a newer model :l ugh.

He's a pegasus who needed his wings amputated after he got into a fight in his youth. He isn't as agile as other pegasi because his wings are prosthetic, but he still does his work arranging clouds and executing weather patterns.

His cutie mark is the Japanese Six Mon, which were usually worn by samurai and warlords to prove that they were not afraid of dying. It's Six's mark to show his courage and level-head in dangerous situations.

fml sorry for all the double(triple, quadruple, etc...) posting my internet is being awful.

anyway, another thing I'm working on. Made myself a base for adoptables - gonna be selling some designs/customs over on FA, and doing some requests here once I get my current ones out of the way!

And speaking of FA, I've got an account there for all my pony stuff if anypony feels like checking it out: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/mousetraps/

For those of you wondering - yes, it's an entirely worksafe gallery and I plan to keep it that way! C:

Seriously, I love this~. That is adorable. Haha, whenever I do try to draw ponies.. the back legs are such an annoyance! D: I don't know why!
My apologies for her being a pain.
