  3. Here's what I got so far

    Also @Splashee, took your advice on width tool! The lines look so much cleaner

      @Splashee I think I already got that covered, just gotta figure out how to make the gradients

      @Tacodidra Thanks! :kirin:

    4. Splashee

      Splashee

      Gradients are difficult, since they are linear. Study Rarity's mane and see if the shading is linear as well (I would predict it is). otherwise, you might have to resort to the gradient mesh tool (I do not like using it, it is not a friendly tool).

       

      For filling, even if you already know it. Duplicate your outlines into a new layer (because the width tool will not survive the convert to live paint layer). You have then two layers, one is the outlines, and one is the live paint. The best part about this is that you can fix errors later.

      The more vector approved way is to go to the menu object->expand or object->expand appearance, which makes the outslines into filled shapes themselves, and then use the pathfinder (a tool window in the window menu) to merge different shapes together. This is the best options when the final drawing is done.

      You should always have the tool window "pathfinder" up anyways, as it is the main way to merge shapes, or split shapes, or align shapes.

       

      But live paint is best for filling ponies, just need to remember to keep a separate layer with the visible outlines on top (so you can keep the width tool's strokes and edit them later if needed)

  4. I totally forget that

    Rarity's mane is too fabulous to thw point where I don't even know how to do it right

      Fabulosity is to be expected with best pony! :grin: I'm sure you'll do a great job! :rarity:

  5. I wish Autumn Blaze got more screentime, or just the kirins in general I lnow she's just a one time character, similiar to Coloratura, but cmon They introduced a whole new race just to make an episode about a one time character Why did they have to waste it?
  6. There is this thank you event to MLP that has started like 2 months ago and I just notice it now :wau:

    I actually want to write a letter to Autumn but I don't really know how to  make this kind of thing, also considering time is running out and I'm really busy atm. :huh:

    Sucks that I will have to miss it :worry:

    1. Tacodidra

      Tacodidra

      I'm sure she'll appreciate your letter, even if it's a bit late. Especially since you're one of the biggest kirin fans here! :kirin:

      I don't even know what to write :maud:

    3. Tacodidra

      Tacodidra

      That's alright, I'm sure you can come up with something later! :kindness:

      Also, thanks for the kind words in the "8 Years and counting" thread, my friend! :rarity: *hugs*

  7. Ok so, MLPF.... 8 years do sound really long right? I can't consider myself as a veteran or something similar and I acknowledge that I'm not really as active as I used to nowadays, but what I know is that this place has given me a lot of social interactions and life lessons. And I feel grateful to be a part of this community Back in 2017, when I was still a new brony, I felt really weird for liking this show. But that's until you all showed that it's ok to like something different and there is nothing wrong on doing so (although it was my mom that really made me came out from the closet ) Anyways, this place also taught me how to behave better on the internet and increased my awareness with my words. I couldn't thank more for that! And now, some people that played a major part during my time here : - @Haunt-A-Brony for being one of the first kind people who greeted me upon my arrival here. You are also a nice and interesting friend and I'm grateful to have you in my friendship circle. Wish you the best for your future and stay awesome! - @Tacodidra for being a kind person that makes me never feel alone, as he literally checks everyone's status updates and posts everyday. You are one of those people who really brings smile to my face. Keep spreading kindness and have a nice day! - @Rikifive for being a really helpful person! Most of our interaction might not happen directly inside the forum, but I know you from this place so it counts. Your help and feedbacks are really helpful as it makes improving easier for me. Thank you! Your assistance is appreciated. Also several other people that I've met and interacted with, like @Sherbert MGS, @Splashee, and @Bas. Thank you for your kindness and friendliness! And finally, other forum members that I forgot, sorry about that, I just couldn't remember all of you, since I rarely interact nowadays and my memory is pretty much getting more and more vague. But what I know is that this place is full of kind, helpful, and friendly people which is a characteristic that I won't always find in other communities! Thank you MLPForums! (Ok, that's all! Sorry if it sounds a bit too repetitive, especially at the end. School was tiring today and I can't think clearly right now, so sorry if I made any mistakesin my words!)
  8. Don't be exagerating, I'm not even popular.... But yeah, here I am, still acquiring new knowledge and learning till the sun sets for the best future
  9. Just remember what Fluttershy said to Garble in MLP S9Ep09 ".... If I was a poet, I'd want to share my creations with everypony."
  10. Now that my drawing is finished
