It's weird, but a lot of people I know use it for some odd reason.
Thats just creepy.
I have 2 OC projects. The more significant is ponifying Anne Frank to use as anti (((anti-nazi))) memes and information. Basically, it would be Anne-Frank pone dropping red-pills about (((them))).
Additionally I'd like to network with some videographers to make more Mlpol vids, along the same lines as the
April 1st video. Mlpol.net is bannable on 4chan, but Mlpol is still a (semi) legit topic. While I'm sure detractors are lurking (there's that 1 guy who claimed JIDF in /qa/ in the least) I'd like to participate in content that is more aesthetic and easily consumable.
just checked in on my Gab.ai account after i heard donald trump has an account there (not in use yet) and randomly found this.
some artist who drew some pony art about a month ago and tagged it with MLPOL.https://redustheriotact.deviantart.com/gallery/
can I request pony porn, that features amputation, cannibalism, and rape?
You should ask Fearingfun for that. The guy draws plenty of it, you can find it at Derpibooru under the fearcomesnaturally tag.
most pony artists dont draw gore but i may know someone who would do that for youhttps://pinkponycarcass.deviantart.com/
that would take multiple images to do right.
that's fine, so long as the pony is still alive during some of the cannibalism and rape, it's fine if it dies by the end but I'm not particularly interested in necrophilia
Seriously though, if someone could make more Leslie Faire art that'd be really cool.
I will forGET this kind of Boop..
Get it? Ha ha ha….Send help…
I think I like Octavia Leslie better.
looks bretty gud. I would recommend using a hard-edged brush defining the lines between the hair colors so you don't get that blurred anti-aliased effect.
Other than that 10/10; would violate her NAP
if you know what I mean.
Another recolor. I'm starting to get the hang of GIMP tools. However, I will not produce another one until after watching some tutorials. There must be a better way of cleaning up images besides artistically changing each boarder pixle. >>87203
Thanks for the advice. While not followed to the letter, I did better because of it. I have never really drawn anything ever before except yesterday, so all advice is appreciated.
The lines on that one definitely look much better. I've never gotten the hang of it myself but I believe there is a pen tool in GIMP that can do vector lines, which I think would be the ideal way to do pony recolors since they're vector images to begin with. If you're looking into tutorials you might want to search in that area.
Suggest more shadowing along the 'knees', but otherwise a good (sexy) pose.
Current art suggests the legs are at an incline, like the hooves are forward respective of the hips. Shadowing dispels that perception.
Good work, but less chicken scratch. Needs work; like less rounder hooves, they need to be a bit blocky. But, good. You did something that even surprised me, and that is a fully connected body (meaning parts/shapes aren't over others), which makes me want to experiment with it myself. The vagina looks like a slab of meat though (that isn't good), but practice makes perfect. It took me some time to learn how to try a horse vagina myself (I still might not be good at it.)>>90455
This is good too.>>90456
Shadowing isn't a shortcut. It would have helped, but there's fundamentals to get right before you try to make it look better.
Remember to practice, Anon.
There's improvement. Make the necks longer.
I request a ponification of rhe Tomato Pony Expresshttps://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/141465/
And an example (Not mine)
Oh, somebody really tried
Gracias anon <3
Just practice anon, I'm trying to get better every day, you can do it too!
I tried to ponkz but my neck got too long
Ah Kinda really, i keep falling on the same errors again and again but I'm working on it.
Pic is the best I could do like two years ago, if I could get from that to this while drawing only occasionally, anyone can get good by just practicing.
Try it anon, and don't ever let no one tell you what you should draw, draw whatever makes you happy and accept criticism with an open heart!I may need to wait to actually draw perfect ponies before giving encouragement I think
If you can find a diagram of a horse vagina, I suggest studying it. The vagina can be separated into several parts: the clitoral hood (vaginal walls/lips), the clitoris,the urethra, and the vaginal opening (hole). Represent them right. You're still not there yet, and I have to admit that the top drawings almost made me gag, not becauce I don't like horse pussy, but because the clitoris was so oversized and the whole would look like monsters instead of vaginas. You have a lot to go, but the lower drawings are okay.
I'm looking for someone willing to draw a satirical sharp-toothed nazi horse with stereotypical pink anime hair, glasses, and white coat.
Not stereotypical or pink enough. Doesn't meet any of the other requirements except for the white coat, either.
Original art of a japanese pony posted in an Aryanne thread mid 2014, made by Randy.
Character concept detail by Anonymous.
"anon that suggested the mini-canon of mitsuko here. thanks for remember the little name i choose for her.
to be honest, it wasn’t as much as official as /mlp/ official. it was a veronika thread mostly, and i only asked for a name since she is cute to just let her forgotten. besides, in that thread i learn thanks to you guys that japs were friends with the nazis, but they still had a commie side of view.
as for the canon if anyone is wondering:>Mitsuko (shining child) is a white pony with a mane like the color of the cherry blossoms>she is reserved due to Japan’s classic culture where a woman was expected to be a good housemaid and perfect wife. she is very timid due to this>she is very intelligent, being able to speak fluent german, russian, and chinese>due to her knowledge, aryanne admits her as "honorary aryan". and due to her sense of honor, veronika calls her as "a loyal comrade">the blade she has is a katana. while she jokes about japanese and edge, she knows how to use it. MGR levels we are talking>each time she makes a mistake, she always tries to deny it. like she never did it in the first place, even when the evidence is clear>her CM is a picture of "the rising sun">she is a total weaboo, her room full of mangas and special collector items and extended animes DVD’s>she draw mangas. she done at least one of each category you can find"
Is that stereotypical enough for you? She's supposed to be a weeb Mary Sue.
I often question the whole "This OC is ironically bad" thing. Are you trying to make some kind of statement with it? What's the statement, that bad OCs are bad? Or do you just want a license to "Ironically" have fun in a world where no fun is allowed?
I don't know what you're referring to.
I do want to get to you. I haven't had time to make out the pose yet.
Do it, or give it a prehensile Frieza-like tail, except it ends in a horsecock.
Make her a cyborg.>RIP, /cyb/
Oh dies that mean we should post /sci/ shit on on /sp/ and /mlpol/ now?
Anything goes on /sp/.
If you can link it to politics or ponies, it can be posted on /mlpol/.
Sounds about right.
Requesting leslie fair pegging Alunya with a strap on.
WTF? Why is sideways?
Requesting Aryanne pissing on an Antifa flag.
Thank you drawfag
you are sidewanon so of course it will be, accept your fate
I am in no way great drawing, I have only a cardboard piece and a broken pencil but let me give you some advice..
Look at the plot, draw a little line dividing the plot and be careful of where the tail comes off from and where the head comes from
Something like that, but get some references that will help
No biggy, you'll get to perfection in a matter of years, it's good that you save these old drawings for whenever you feel there's no progress.
Or shitting on some antifa fag… she's German.
That's pretty good actually
Glad you think so
Awwww… Leslie looks so happy.>>106193
Leslie reacting to some commie bullshit>>106262
That's pretty cool
You are slowly improving!
And you draw at least three times more than i do, youll become really good at this rate anon
Not too keen on either of those ideas, it would be hard to draw a pony holding a glass unless it's a unicorn
>reccomending Le Gimp
fuck the Gimp, it's bad and technically limited. it is just a thing from Linux devs who tried to prove Linux can be useful for graphic editing.
If you want graphic editing, the software is Krita.
for vectors you have the excellent Inkscape, for 3D you have Blender.
Gimp is nothing, if you can do stuff with it, it's good, if not, stop trying to fuck with that, it will discourage you and you won't learn anything professionally valuable from it.
If you use Windows, you have no reason not to download and install CS2 ,there is the complete suite compatible with all windows versions since 2000 pro. And it's much faster than a CS5. No cloud or crack needed, just enter the serial number provided.https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/cs2-product-downloads.html?promoid=19SCDRQK
This is what I use all the time, now; software is no longer an excuse.
one thing to know: since windows Vista, you are not really the real administrator of your system, regardless if it's "pro" or "ültimate gaymer X64" versions of Windows.
Photoshop and the CS suite programs must be installed in your user directory to work, instead of Program files. No registration required.
i won't claim i'm a master of all these software, i rarely use vectors really, only to vectorize stuff I designed on PS, but even if it's a 2005 software it will do much more than you'll ever need. including tablet pressure and file format support. Also everything you need for adding typography, kerning, spacing, working with text and font specifications if you need to make some meme convincing, not coming out from some generated shit or drawn on mspaint.
if you really need something heavier to work with over 9000 layers and 600dpi images, CS4 64bit exists, but even myself i never seen the point (and the UI approaches the clusterfuck but far from being a Gimp kind of flustercuck.
the rest is practice.
Who's John Elway?
Alright, I'll do it tomorrow
Where's all the drawings of this pone coming from? It's show quality
I think they are recolors
Damn good recolors though.
Why did you make the head smaller?
Not bad, but how about the glasses?
>>107547>That last pic
Not bad for a first try, pretty cute.
good but do longer strokes, the lines look scratchy because you draw any given line with a bunch of short strokes instead of one long stroke. It'd also keep the thickness of the lines more even throughout. Compare the lines on leslie to the nice neat lines the letters are made up of if you don't get what I mean
Thanks for the tips, I'll keep those in mind next time>>107594
I'll try again tonight, any suggestions to draw?
can you draw a pony with her limbs being sawed off, as part of a process of turning her into a living sex toy that can't move?
Praise Football! Well done.
Glad as always to oblige my friends and neighbours.
Original requester here.
It's even more beautiful than I imagined.
I'd prefer to not draw that ever>>107718
darn, I'm not a competent enough drawfag to address my own fetishes. I'll just have to keep practicing for now
Not in the mood to draw tonight, but I'll bump the thread with some tips
An excellent book to read is Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, it's a classic, and I realised relatively recently that my art teacher for 5 years basically did nothing but lift from that book, we even did the exact exercises in the book as lessons.
The bottom line for the entire thing is that art is not about the ability to draw itself, it's about the ability to accurately translate what you can see to your hand to draw.
Try to look at parts of something in relation to other parts, it helps you keep everything proportional. Don't be afraid to long breaks, even up to a couple days, to help get rid of what you think it SHOULD look like, so when you come back you can see what it actually looks like. I'm working on an irl painting right now, and after I finished the preliminary sketch for hours it looked fine, ready to paint, but I left it for a couple days while I wait on paints to come, and when I came back I reevaluated and decided I needed to enlarge some parts, and change the angles on a whole bunch of stuff.
Specifically for ponies one of the things that will instantly elevate your work is noticing colour, I could be wrong but I don't think I've ever seen a pony from the show with a black outline, they all seem to have a slightly darker shade of their main body colour for their outline.
Their manes and tails are usually all done in a darker shade of 1 of the colours of their mane, usually whichever colour is most prevalent in their mane or tail (in the case of Rainbow Dash it's the colour that most prevalent in her design over all: blue). The mane or body colour clashing too much with an outline colour can make a drawing seem "off" even if it's drawn perfectly fine. I had that problem when drawing Leslie (ancap pony) all the depictions I'd seen used black to outline her entirely but once i made her body outline yellow, a black outline clashed horribly with the dark yellow of her mane and I eventually decided on a dark reddish colour as something sort of in between black and yellow.
Also as a rule of thumb I tend to go with "there's no such thing as black" something an art teacher once told me about drawing still life. While it isn't strictly true it has uses, effectively what he meant was that in nature most things that may appear black are actually dark shades of multiple colours, and you should build up layers of dark browns and purples etc to create black rather than using a black pencil. Similarly if you're drawing digitally to create a more realistic natural look, avoid using black, use a dark shade of something else, blue or purple are my go-to blacks. If you want something to look digital then use black, however in MLP black is used very sparingly it only really seems to appear on eyes and villains. Even the night sky is usually blue or purple, notably the zebras don't have black stripes, even their hooves are dark grey, noticeably lighter than the black used on their eyes . You'll notice in both my drawings of Leslie her hair is actually a dark grey and not true black, it's a small detail but it's something to remember if you want to try and draw show quality, because the show doesn't use much black, it's bright and pastel coloured.
I'm not really sure what else I can think of right now, i may randomly post more tips if I remember anything specific. But for the most part my number 1 tip is just pay attention to how they do things in the show. The designs are all relatively simple and they actually don't have much variety, they tend to depict things from the same angles for your average scene. Use reference, constantly look at how they did something in the show while you're drawing, or some of the better drawings in the "how to draw ponies" guides have every possible angle if you need help.
For you specifically there's some tips i have for your drawing here >>107579
but I'd want to draw over it to illustrate my points and it's rude enough as it is directing this blog post of art tips at you.
If you want advice on that drawing specifically though let me know.
M8 go ahead and fucking draw over it, it's not only my first drawing of a poner but really my first drawing that wasn't a scrible.
I went ahead and thickened out the lines with a brush pen so I may upload that.>no black outlines
I can't do digital art currently so black was my only choice but I do get your point.>rude
Nah, it's fine. I actuallly wanted some good ol'fashion critisim, cause I want to do better. Thanks Anon.
Gonna need a min. I wrote all my fucking notes, went to export it and Krita has crashed, so I'm gonna have to start over
Alright, i think i got everything. I feel like there was something I wrote in the bottom left but I have no idea what.
Anyway these are just notes for small improvements without a complete re draw, some of the guides may be a little off, I definitely think I sketched the mane too thick, I probably should've drawn on a different layer so i could adjust my lines, but you get the idea.
Not sure what expression you were going for, i would've drawn it more frustrated or annoyed, which would be mostly expressed through the eyes.
>>108174>back of mane
Yeah, that one wasn't even being new to art, that one was human error. I outlined the head in pen, then looked at my reference and almost stabbed myself with my pen.
Thanks for the tips though, I'll have to try again soon.>expresionconfused scrunch face.
>>108179>confused scrunch face.
Do you have reference for it?
Well, now that you say that I realize I don't.
There's my first problem
Of those I would probably use the purple mane one for reference. I like the one in the hat but it looks too weird with one eye fully open.
In a word; blocky
Can you elaborate on that a bit?
Attempt number two: electric boogaloo.
I think it looks better, what do you guys think though?>>108201
Thanks for the references
I think it looks a lot better. If you can, I hope you color this.
Ah idk man it's 7am for me and I've not slept.
Fundamentally fine for a doodle but the lines are too thick making most of the linework impossible to really judge because drawing at the size you can't create detail so saying it's not detailed enough is redundant.
Proportions are a little off
Glasses too small
But again for a doodle it's fine.>>108231
Vast improvement my dude. Ear could afford to be a bit bigger. And maybe the hair on top a bit puffier, but the basics are solid. There's a couple nitpicks but it basically comes down to "not how I'd have done it", it's kinda hard to judge further while it's still pen and paper
Both of you need to into digital. Krita is free, you can probably make at least some progress without a graphics tablet, and even then there are cheap graphics tablets out there.
also actual I'd fuck about with the eyes a bit, the one up front could do with being wider, and they look a little cross eyed, unless that was the intention I'd move one of them to better match the other
Currently it's not the price holding me back, just some technical problems Wireless isn't working and idk how to fix it short of nuking everything on the PC>>108242
Okay, I'll start messing around with those. Thanks for the tips Anon.
No wait, on the eye I realise what's up, it's curving at the top, as though the eye ends there, in which case the eye would be too small. But as you have a line cutting off the top if it didn't curve you could say the eyebrow is just that far down, and then it might be fine. Does that make sense?
Sorry I'm tired.
Ah, I see what you're saying.Now get sleep Anon, you can't give us advice if you're sleep deprived
If I feel like it, tomorrow I may just draw my own version of your idea if you don't mind. I'd do it differently, like I said I preferred the purple mane pony for reference personally. Congrats on making the hat pony's look work though, you have most of the basic shapes down and thats really all you need when it comes to drawing cartoons
That's fine, I'm now curious to see how you'll draw it.
Thanks, I felt hat pony's eye carried more of expression I was looking for, and when my pencil sketch came out good I just kept the ball rolling.
Just because there seems to be another thread about it atm, would you mind if I uploaded this to booru? I've made it a mission to upload all of the Milo pics.
Few small factors still off. Small ear, I think now that maybe the 2nd eye should have the eyebrow angled differently, line work is pretty shaky, and you need a gradient on the irises. The mane is also a little off but meh not the biggest deal.
I've not really been in the mood to draw for a while but I'll get around to redrawing it how I would do it>>108555
Hind leg is off.
Is it supposed to be a foal?
I struggled enormously with the hind legs, and never got them right. I didn't set out with a plan of foal or grown, but it ended up as a foal (I think)…
Ah yes, gradients
How do I do that?I know at this point I'm pretty much making excuses, but it was shaky cause my fucking stylus was falling apart as I was using it.
There's often a tool for it, but you're on some weird software right? You can creat a gradient by just creating thick lines of colour that gradually get darker/lighter, then smudge it.
I'd show you how but I'm not at my computer
Thats fine, I'll try it later
Not bad at all.
Many Thanks.>I am playing with the idea of trying to draw a pone a day and see how it goes; got to learn how to draw somehow.
This guy is damn right. You won't go anywhere with The Gimp.
You want free software? Install Krita.
You want a complete software to practice, progress, get your hands on what professionals use and have the chance to later be hired in graphics arts? Follow this guy.
Damn that looks good. What thread did that come from?
Draw Thread. Also had those 2 beauties delivered from there. IMO best thread on /mlp/ at the moment.
Might order more ponified MEMRI TV.
>>109598>MEMRI TV pony.
Actually kek'd at that one. It's fantastic.
There is a solid potential for these memes.
Anon versions of these would be hillarious.
Last one can be "We can smell if someone is a barbie-fag".
Wow. That is some old time Walt Disney quality animation.

Why does sketches always look better than the "lineart"…
>proportions are off, but only 4th pony I've drawn
Nice, keep at it. Might put my lazy ass to work finally and maybe try to draw Syriana…
Thanks. All I can do is practice. Perhaps one day I will be decent at it.>hoping I will learn to draw more than ponies in profile
>>111463>Why does sketches always look better than the "lineart"…
I actually have an answer for this, sketches use multiple lines to project a rough estimation of shape and size, you unconsciously acknowledge this and pick out the lines that fit the best out of many. Line art however is a solid line and so you don't get to choose from several possible lines, so if it's off, it looks off.
Needs more filly.
norfilly-chan is best filly.
Do your line art on a separate layer so you can erase it easily without erasing your sketch. Don't be afraid to redraw the same line a few times until you've got it right. Keep referring to your reference, take breaks to allow yourself to get rid of the picture in your head, when you come back you might see things that are off that looked fine when you drew them
Actually his problem is that his lineart ISN'T solid. He's using chicken scratch. Which just looks bad.>>111463
You need to learn better line control. If you have to pick up your pencil/pen multiple times on a single line, you're probably doing something wrong.
Converting your sketch to line art is called inking.
Most of the time you want your lines to be single strokes. Learn to control your hand so that you can actively control both pressure and the direction the line is going.https://youtu.be/QSpLMzJNSJ4
Even the single stroke thing isn't absolute though. At the end of the day, the most important thing is being able to control your tool and make it produce the exact lines you want.
Literally nothing wrong with sketch lines being short and feathered. They're just you trying to figure out the shape. Solid lines are for when you've decided where everything will be.
His line art is still the same though.
It's incredibly messy.
>Implying I'm not an artistI'm not a 2D artist, but I have several family members who are
I don't do 2D, so it's still messy.
But I think you'll agree the line is much more clean.
Thanks for input, and suggestions.
I can agree that my lineart isn't a one stroke line that it should be (in finished work). I want to blame the stylus and program, but I have to take most of the blame. The image in question also has a rougher outline than I would aim for, and is not cleaned up in any way. I thought that it was better to get some input on rough finish work than trying to perfect it first and still have proportions way off before asking. Also as time goes by (this being my 1 1/2 week mark) I will get better. I was thinking of going vector art to finish, but it is a little cop-out, and I think I would do myself a disservice if I did that.
Looks really goodsome would say ewww anthro, but I will not judge subject>also your retro dot matrix printed "background image" is captivating
In my personal opinion, art is 90% thought process, 10% being able to control your tools.
Getting your tools to match up with your thought process can be hard, but that comes with practice.
What doesn't come with practice though, is "art skills" those will only come if you continue to challenge the way you perceive things and continue to experiment with drawing styles and methods.
Above all else, remember that art is subjective and the only thing that matters is that your targeted base enjoys the final result.
I am thinking of doing the "boring" but perhaps oh so necessary draw cubes, shade them, rinse repeat, and the like. And I might be starting at a wrong end, but if I have not improved in a years time I might have to go that route. Will perhaps do a little cube now and then while thinking anyway. It might be easier to go pencil and paper as it is true 1:1 tactile an mechanical connection between tool and canvas. But all is probably just practice no matter what you choose and getting to know the fickle nature of the tool you chose.
I'd still criticise it, clean or not. MLP has a very distinct style of line art, and clean as your lines are, they taper a the ends, showing the strokes, which would be unsuitable for MLP art
>>111892>>111888>Draw on tablet>Can't see where hand is in relation to lines>Draw on paper>Can't see the whole image because hand/wrist/arm is blocking
There are an unlimited number of pros and cons to each artistic tool.
Becoming a good artist is being able to pick up a new tool and being able to quickly master it.
Expand yourself beyond just pen/pencil/tablet
Take up painting, learn to use charcoal, etc.
As I said before, being able to manipulate your tool to do whatever you need it to is what's really important.>>111892
You missed the point ENTIRELY and moved the goal posts from the other post.
I'm talking about continuous strokes, not weight.
No you're missing the point. Your straight lines in which we can see your brushstrokes are on balance no better than scratchy sketch lines when in both cases the desired effect is 1 unbroken line in which thickness highlights curves.
Messy line art can be perfectly effective in certain situations, particularly conveying motion or disorder.
So to say smooth line art is inherently superior, then not achieve line art similar to the desired effect of the show's artist is self defeating.
The eyes bother me more than anything else. Still saved.
Hey, anyone wants some critiques or redlines?
If we're being honest I completely hate it, I just wanted to see if mouse drawing was something I could do
Sure, feel free to critique any of mine. Here's three of mine.>>110095>>108220>>107458
I know the one with Leslie and HHH has awkward perspective, but if you find any other ways I can make any of them (or my other drawings) better, feel free to critique.
Don't hate on it, improve upon it. There are problems with it, but there some okay points to it as well. Keep trying. This faggot >>110095
isn't a great artist, but he is incrementally improving. Keep improving, and never be satisfied.
>>112070>never be satisfied
Thats the easy part.
I have to admit though, I like it more than my first one >>107579
I'd think I'd like to redline 1 and 2. If you can, can you show us a recent drawing. There needs to be work done on the proportions.
Okay, so there's some consistency. The neck is shorter and thicker than it should be. The forelegs tend to be meaty and arm like, which is not like a horse's. Though not too bad. Sometimes they can be stubby. As for the face, the symmetry is good, but the eyes are too close or the face isn't evenly spread. It's kind of like a potato or oval. I might have to redline or draw you an example for you to get the idea with it. It's honestly okay. The ears are too small as well. You could make the snoot smaller.
The biggest thing to take from here is that your proportions need some work. He's a handy tip. Ponies are three heads tall (their own heads) and two and a half heads wide. Adjust that how you like. The bases are good study.
You're welcome. I will make sure to redline your next drawing, that'll be the best time to gauge how much you might have learned from this exchange.
needs more swastikas and a black sun
Damn, you're getting better at this.
Will try to get them included in next one>>113011
I like your ponies nordbro.
(usefull reference attached)
Also, more drawfaggotry from me soon with any luck.
Cute, backgrounds story please
im pretty bad at writing but ill write what i had for her concept
>Pin Needle is a very grumpy and tired mare, her parents wanted her to be a weather pony, but she stayed in her room just doing nothing but daydream. so one day she got a book about knitting and designs, she actually went out looking for all the materials and try her hand at it, every day for hours on end she would knit scarves, caps, sweaters and leg warmers.
>After some time she got her cutie mark and decided to move out looking for someone to teach her how to master knitting. she spent years tirelessly looking for someone to teach her, but everyone she asked she ended up dissapointed that they either couldnt take her in or just bore her with long winded lectures. She tried teaching other ponies to knit, but they either rejected or just ran off with how forceful she seemed to do so, with how she is, very grumpy and tired looking.
>She decided to just give up and open a shop with the money she saved up knitting for other ponies. People sometimes are afraid to ask her anything with how grumpy she is, of course spending years searching for a good teacher and failing makes you just feel like you wasted all your time on it.
sorry if it seems a bit cringy or something, im not good with these kind of things, i just draw stuff
Good base, could use some cleaning up.
GREAT wordplay with the name.
(On pins and needles means to have anxiety, for anyone who doesn't know that idiom)
I think it works better if she gets her cutie mark almost instantly after discovering knitting.
The bottom right doodle where's she's happy, but still tired looking is what I'd imagine she always looks like when knitting.
Like she's a very grumpy/closed off pony, but as soon as she starts to knit or gets talking about it, she becomes absolutely beaming with joy.
The time spent looking for a master knitter is unnecessary imo. It could be done much more simply by having her get her cutie mark at a young age, but her rich parents refuse to let peasant work be her talent.
Years of growing up being told that you're a mistake or that you have the wrong future/dream would make anyone angry with life.
I feel sorry for her. I wish she had better fortune in her life. But great drawings and backstory.
thanks, its nothing amazing but something i thought would fit her in concept>>113877
yea, i didnt want her too fall too much in the angry because of parental abuse and rich parent stuff, but thanks for the critiques
Thanks a million!>>113860>>113875
This is genuinely good. When people design characters they usually make ones that are either impossibly happy or overly miserable/edgy. This OC is just an average pony who's had some disappointments in life but won't stop doing what she loves.
This is probably my most "harshest" critique, but only because you show the greatest growth.>>113884
Cute face. It's a bit pudgy, but pretty good.
Many thanks for input, don't be afraid of giving more corrections and tips in the future, always appreciated. Better to learn than to fumble in darkness by yourself and picking up bad habits.>regarding the back legs, I noticed it as soon as I had posted. I had been focusing too much on the lines that I simply had stared myself blind on it.
I guess it is mainly the same as previous one when I look at it now…>I need to slim down the body and get all sorts of proportions in the right places
Yes. There is in fact progress. Get the neck right by making it longer, and you'll be ready to try some new poses. Adversity breeds talent.
I don't know what to draw. Anyone got any ideas?
Or any of the OCs mentioned in >>76916
Love it. Leslie looks really happy and content, perhaps a bit dreamy thinking of helicopters too.
I’m no artist, but that looks amazing to me. The tail does seem a bit off, but other than that, great job.
Many Thanks. I really, really, struggled with the tail. Changing it from going straight out and back to actually somehow go at an angle towards the viewer was beyond my skillset at the moment.
Leslie even looks cute burning communists to death with rays from here eyes.

The image is upside down for one thing.
Okay other than that.
I like it, much better than I was, and still am, able to do.>I need to draw more
Solid work. I recommend practicing on the composition of the line. Light strokes, light & relaxed flow, move with your shoulders more than your wrist, etc… This should help you do manes and hair more nicely along with general formulation.
Picture your work in t in 3D. Shades balls, build up drawings from balls (experiment with positioning of them), use external framing outside the character to figure out space. Practice multiple times and don't be afraid to start over multiple times with a sketch or position. At times, you may actually be stuck with a pose; I suggest revisiting them later and starting another one while keeping in mind new conventions that can make things easier to go back on and apply again. Skeletal lines are good too.>>117547>>117229>>116262>>119243>>119243>>119816
In general, I find the cartoony look of these drawings amusing. However that can cause it to suffer at times. There's something called symbol drawing (basic guessing on how something should look) that you need to get past. In due time things will get better the more you grasp reality. Meanwhile, your drawings can come off as flat, blocky, and sometimes proportions are smaller than they should be (for example, small faces, but big heads.)
Yep, I really need to learn to revisit drawings instead of clambering to finish them.

It's beautiful, Anon.
She looks a little crazy, otherwise good job.
Wow. I love pixelart, but never managed to make any myself. Love it.

Beautiful! That is great. If you could make her body move slightly as if she was breathing, that would be even better (though significantly harder).
