    Drawing. Programming video games. Composing music. Long walks on the beach. Playing Tetris at max speed until eyes fall out. Powerlines, transformers, trusses... Yes TRUSSES! Collecting old telephones and repairing them. Collecting ponies. Collecting street lights (mostly lanterns from the 60-70's). Taking care of my pet ducks. Animating Anime style. DBZ, Mario (only the 2D stuff). Computer technical stuff. Font design -> with complex grid fitting (basically pixel art that can be resized, so crazy cool concept, and impossible at the same time).

  11. I have figured out a way to post (in General Discussion, etc) without updating my post count :oh_golly:

     

    Wanna figure out how? Click the spoiler:

    You can post as guest if you are logged out. :BornAgainBrony:

    If that post gets converted to your own account, there is a risk the post count will increase with it.

    Worse is, if the mods don't like such behavior, since they have to approve posts for no reason, it will probably lead to some warning or ban.

    So I will not do it.

      I've noticed the reply box appears when logged out, but I've never actually tried to post anything that way, so I wasn't sure if it's possible (and I don't want to try for the reasons you mentioned). :adorkable:

      I suspect the posts would get rejected in any case – the only guest posts I've seen were from users whose accounts have been deleted.

  12. On the subject of redrawing your OC, I think your main challenge is drawing the expression, such as getting a cute smile or a cute surprised look. Often such designs come from adjusting eyes, nose, mouth at a very delicate precision, often almost invisible to see. You might need to redraw parts over and over again until you find a sweet spot.

    I have read a few French-Belgium comics in the past, and finding expressions and inspiration from other sources than MLP is a great tactics. Same goes for French-Japanese Anime.

    My own OC is inspired by many different Animes/Manga/games, but most of those sources don't include cuteness by default. It is when you start mixing in cuteness onto otherwise great designs that normally aren't cute, that you can find something special.

     

    This is my reply to your topic, so I don't bump my 10000 post count

      Yeah, I thought about that problem, my characters are often dead serious and getting a cute or otherwise not so serious expression is a challenge. My own style is considered by some as the edge of realism. I do find their statement to me extremely exaggerated but it does point out to the 'serious' problem haha puns. Anyway yes, I'll try to get inspirations from over things to understand how facial expressions really work. I also have an other problem which is totally unrelated to the lines: the colours. I always have a hard time shading even if mlp isn't the most shaded universe, but not talking only about shades, my colour palette seems off. Mlp is vibrant if that's something you can say, and my characters are....plain? My response is getting long. I thank you lots:kindness: it's giving me new ideas:squee:

      I have never been good with colors myself. I have learnt just a few years ago to adjust most colors at a late stage, as long as each colored object is in its own layer, you can use tools such as Hue/Saturation to change brightness and darkness, saturation (can pop out the color, make it brighter than others), and even swap the entire color spectrum (red becomes blue, or green becomes yellow). However, shades are limits to the colors you drew the shades in, so they might not be the same quality. That is of course fixed by having shades in separate layers as well.

      Drawing everything in its own layer, even sketches, makes easier to adjust very small details, to get that perfect cuteness, and helps with colors as well.
