About this blog

Just a place to monitor my art journey, from zero to hero somewhere just a little above zero.

I'm Still Here

It's been a while since my last post in here. Motivation's been hard to come by, that and the fact that I ended up making a pretty complicated drawing made this one take quite a while. But anyway, clothes. Clothes/Dresses are a thing now (and apparently swords). Here's a thing.

Solid Foundations

There's not a whole lot to say here other than that I'm still working on improving. My last few pictures have been decent, good even, but I can't help notice the flaws that are probably caused by my rushing to improve too fast. These past weeks I've gone back to the basics: body structure, anatomy, proportions, etc. I don't have anything to show because I'm sure no one wants to see a bunch of incomplete sketches focused on improving rather than producing a high quality finished product. My
 

Wings

So this is something I've been putting off for way too long: drawing wings. Ok, technically I've drawn wings before, but I've been sticking to wings that are folded up at a pony's side. I've finally taken the time to practice drawing spread wings. I started with show style pegasus/alicorn wings, then let my imagination go to work. And here we have my first full piece of art featuring a pony in flight. (or really any pose at all that shows off her wings )
 

Little Things

This entry isn't really marking any significant progress with any particular technique, but rather marking the first time use of a couple techniques. It's true this is my first attempt at Luna-style hind legs or kirin features(the scales, hooves, etc.), but also this is my first ever (digital or otherwise) attempt at fur fluff which I intend to start practicing with on occasion, and perhaps eventually make it a permanent addition to my drawings. @Lady Kiriness
 

Hairy Situation

As the title pun suggests, this week I've been working pretty much exclusively on drawing hair detail in manes and tails. I've had. . . well, mostly failures. But I had one success. Sure it doesn't look fantastic, but considering how hard hair is and I've only just started with it, I'm really really happy with it. I think a few of you have seen this one already, but let's see it again anyway.

Small Steps

It's been a couple weeks since my last entry, but that's because it took almost two weeks to finish my latest drawing. 13 days from start to finish to be exact. I don't know if I'm getting all that much better or if it's just the sheer amount of time I spent on it, but I'm pretty happy with how this piece came out. I'm glad I'm making progress, but I still have a looooong way to go. Anyway, enough of my rambling. You came here for art after all, so here it is. (full version, not the reduced

One week in

It's been a week and I'm still sticking with it. Knowing me, that's a feat in and of itself. That said, I don't have a finished piece to post to mark my progress. I do however have a portion of a far larger project I'm working on that can serve as my progress marker, also perhaps as a sneak peak of said project. Anyway, you didn't come here for words, so have some art.    I have another sketch here. First off, it's just that: a light sketch. It's something I threw together to
 

First Sketch

I've decided to try my hand at digital art and figured I'd throw a little something together to keep track of my progress. Don't expect much, as I'm pretty much starting from zero. I'll try to keep this updated every week or two for as long as my desire to continue improving persists. And that's, well, I suppose that's it. Please be kind.      This one's really just me getting used to my new drawing tablet, trying to copy an already existing picture. I think you're familiar wi
