  1. While my skills towards drawing ponies, specifically, have withered over time, they wound up being bolstered by everything else I'd learned in the intervening five years about color theory, shading, proportions, and good posing! I wasn't expecting this to turn out NEARLY as well as it did, to be honest. I guess drawing ponies is kinda like riding a bicycle! Now, may I present: Dual Core Dual Core is the creation of @superspyro3000 who let me use him for pony-drawing practice! I really fell in love with this guy while drawing him, so here's a short Bio: Dual Core was born with two horns, and eventually developed two cutie marks, on the matching side to each horn. One horn and mark are for an affinity with plants, and the others, an eye for art. Despite having double the horns and technically double the magic, he doesn't have double the power of your typical Unicorn. If he so much as tries to use both horns at once--or, more likely, if he gets startled while using magic and both go off at once--bad things happen. Most of his magical skill boils down to the simple spells, like levitation; it doesn't help that he was born into a small-town community with no real magic users. Dual Core's creator is currently working on a story on him--you should totally follow him if this character's captured you interest at all! ...Oh, also lemme know what you think about the piece! Can anyone give me some tips or resources for drawing hooves at an angle?
  2. Is it right to have multiple OCs if you cant decide which to use?
  3. My OC was created in MSPaint last year (December of 2018) in MSPaint, by mistake. I was drawing freehand with the mouse. I had previously drawn what I would look like in Equestria Girls style, but I had an idea to make the pony version more "crazy hair", and because of mistakes with the mouse, I got a look that almost spoke directly back to me as being an independent drawing not drawn by myself (I have never experienced that before). In the Equestria Girls version, I had chosen to use the psychopath eyes style (that is eyes you can find in Anime/Manga that have tiny pupils, usually really evil guys (Zarbon when he goes mad, Android 17 in the later part of the series, etc). But what if you put those eyes on a pony? And Splashee was born (even before his name was invented, which was much later). The first drawings are my Vector Art (click on them for larger views). They are all done in Adobe Illustrator so that I can export them in any dimensions ever possible, and with any effects applied afterwards: The other drawings you have seen around are drawn in Adobe Photoshop. Except for the animated profile picture, which was drawn and animated in a pixel/palette program called GraphicsGale (used to do pixel art for retro games, it's free and the best palette managing program you can find). Here is Splashee as a duck for the Role Play (Transformation Time!) which I am part of: Last we have the fun one. Here I am speed drawing Splashee (blank flank, because the cutie mark is not friendly to draw by hand) from a nice side view. The speed is 400% the normal, and the video takes 5 minutes of your time: Other than that, Splashee's name is fun to pronounce, and fun to draw! Any OC related information can be found in the RP Character Sheets on the forum LOL
  4. Made my first drawing of my pony-sona LemonLavender! I'm new to drawing ponies so I'm real excited about how he turned out. He's a unicorn that used to be a earth pony but was granted the gift of a horn so he could assist his queen with their daily duties. His horn is weird because it was based off of "The Last Unicorn", curved and majestic, but it's a little broken due to another horn that grew straight up. Not much lore behind it yet-but I'm hoping to add more to him and the kingdom he resides in. I'm thinking about changing his name, not sure to what though-something related to his original name like: LavenderBreeze, LemonBasket, LavenderSunset, ect. Suggestions and ideas are always welcomed! Thank you for anyone who took the time to read this. UwU (This is all copied from my profile page just so I didn't have to rewrite it!) Feel free to critique, but go easy on me-I'm a sensitive bean. Thank you! This is my art from around April or June, so I think I have improved since then! The drawing below!

  6. 'Sup MLP Forums, how are you all doing? For those of you who may already know me, you may already be aware that my site username also happens to be the name of my Ponysona OC (and the name of my Music Channel on YouTube). However, I have started to notice that: 1. It may not make that much sense to use as a male pony name (despite some pony names literally having names that human beings also use, such as Cadence, Octavia, etc.). 2. I honestly feel a little cringy having my Ponysona OC using my real life nickname (and what I also use for personal real life branding), Jonny. It just doesn't sound right and feels out of place. 3. I did not know how to better name my Ponysona OC back then when he "became alive" back in 2014 when I asked someone to create an OC for me. And so because of this, I have been thinking to change my Ponysona OC's name to something else, such as these potential new names I came up with: - Shining Pipe (this might be a good name for my Ponysona OC) [Note, this name was inspired from Shining Armor and the sound producing part of a "pipe" organ] - Silver Pipe (sounds pretty generic to me personally) - Charming Stallion (according to the "Rum & Monkey" Pony name generator, lol) - Wild Pipe (not sure if my Ponysona is "wild" enough for that kind of name, lol) - Tin Pipe (as in the material organ pipes tend to consist of) - Steel Pipe (same as above) - Silver Whistle (Decided officially as the new name) (The last 4 were found/inspired from the My Little Pony name generator from the Fantasy Name Generators) UPDATE! (new names!): - Lucky Pipe - Lucky Whistle (The reason for "lucky" is due to the association the colour green (my OC's coat colour) has with luck)) If you have any name suggestions or if you happen to disagree with my thought of changing the name in any way, please feel free to share your thoughts, I'll be looking forward to them. Also for reference, you'll see an updated image of my OC attached. UPDATE: As of Jan. 19, 2019, my Ponysona OC's name is now "Silver Whistle".
  7. This is art I made last night of Pinkie Pie and my OC MoonPetal!
  8. This is my ponysona! Its my first art piece of her that I made myself. It didn't take very long to make (her back legs took the longest) and I know I can improve so any criticism is welcomed! I hope you all enjoy!!

  10. In the halloween mood naturally and had some time so i decided to do a bust of my oc, Ai, as a pretty subtle bat pony (aka i just changed her eye colour, big teeth and extra fluffy ears.) This was super fun to make and i'm pleased with how it came out! qwq I don't actually mind critique but for whatever reason, i can't remove the no critique thing after posting..
  11. Welp, I'm doing something I've never done before. I'm drawing a full scene of an audio drama. Backgrounds, props, different angles, an entire conversation, the whole shebang. Yay. Okay real-talk: this is nerve-wracking for me. I'm taking a major leap from occasionally doing digital headshots of certain characters to... this. I've been practicing, and I must not be total trash for my audition to have been accepted, but it's still kind of scary. Oh well. Anyway, on to what I need. The scene I've been assigned to draw takes place in a Cloudsdale cafe, and common sense dictates that a cafe have customers within it. I don't have an OC, and no one I know personally has a Pegasus OC that I can think of. And I don't feel like looking up background Pegasi to fill in the background. Sounds like a lonely cafe. So, if you have a Pegasus OC, and would like them featured in the audio drama, post a reference for them down below. I'm hoping to get at least a dozen. If, by any chance I get more than that, I may not be able to include all of them. So, unless the list of volunteers is more barren than the Mojave, I have to ask that each person only list one OC. I need to get drawing ASAP, so time is of the essence. Two days is the longest I can put this off, so try to get them in soon. Thanks!
  12. This may sound weird or strange at first but hear me out, I’ve been wanting to create a character based on the history and unique culture of Southern Louisiana and New Orleans, (as far as personality and such it would be a “princess and the frog” kind of concept in a way) my character would also be in the 1920’s/1930’s of New Orleans and will have a sweet and loving personality i need help with advice, design/artwork, voice, or any other comments you may have thanks
  13. Needless to say it's been a while since the last time i've drawn a pony, but honestly i don't think this turned out too badly. This was going to be just a regular drawing at first, but during the thought process i decided to give it a slight holiday twist with the winter clothing and such, it's nothing much, but it looks nice nonetheless. Anyway, i've been thinking a lot about the weather lately: here in Brazil it gets really stormy around this time of the year, thus for the last few weeks or so i've been hearing a lot of rain, thunder and lightning coming from outside my house, which eventually inspired my new OC: my fellow users, say hello to Stormy Weather! She's a young adult pegasus, would probably be around her early 20s at most if she were a human, born and raised in Cloudsdale by her mother Stormy Tide and her father Heavy Weather; both of them weather ponies, and ever since she got her cutie mark she had wanted to follow their hoofsteps. Now that she's grown, Stormy works at the rain division* of the weather team, specifying in heavy rains and thunderstorms, it only makes sense: Stormy Weather's talent is, as her name would imply, causing storms. Weather is a mare of above-average height and somewhat athletic build, traits that she shares in common with her father, but still retains an overall feminine appearance. Backstory: Personality: Commentary:
  14. Oh my.. been a long time since I've been here.. I think it was back in 2015 I was here last Hohoo~ Well.. here's my newest drawings at least.
  15. So, @Sunset Rose told me that there were some people around here in the need of cat horse. So I'm here to fulfill your cat horse needs! Here she is, the cat horse herself; Cheshire AKA Cheshers. Feel free to ask her anything, pet her even. Just be careful. She bites.
  16. Hello, I know this might seem like a silly question, but if I want to submit my OC's for say critique or just to introduce my OC, which forum topic should I do it in? Thank you, Jason
  17. I see a LOT of "help! My OC needs a name!" So… seeing as how I do enjoy helping, I thought I'd start a naming thread. If you have an OC, or are just writing an MLP fanfic that needs background ponies, names can be a right challenge. Especially since the MLPverse has a bit of a naming format. But just call me Bastian Balthazar Bux! Because giving names is a favourite past time of mine. (Okay, that reference may be a little dated, but Never Ending Story is still a classic!) Just post with a little description of your OC, include as much as you can: Cutie Mark, Colours, occupation, relations if possible… maybe a few personality traits (like lazy, hyper, talkative, friendly, emo, stuff like that)… I'll reply with name suggestions. And (hooves crossed) others can put their suggestions in, too.
  18. Since I call the ponies little marshmallow floofs I decided to make a character which I named Marshmallow Cloud.
  19. Two new OC pones XD First one, Little Raindrop Second one, Sneezy Firefly
  20. Hello there! I'm Tealeaf, otherwise known as the artist EnigmaticWisp. I'm not a professional artist by any stretch of the imagination and I don't claim to be, but I have devoted a very large amount of time to character design and the mlp fandom as a whole. While I would love to be able to give just a general guideline for you all to utilize, I feel like sometimes a nice, personal approach can be more helpful. That's what I'm here to offer! You can ask me for advice on general stuff such as color schemes, names, or other aspects of the creating process, or you can feel free to just present your character for analysis. Whichever method is more comfortable for you is completely fine, but I do have a question for you to answer and a form for you to fill out so that I can assist a little bit easier. It's preferable if you have a visual reference, although not necessary. What specifically are you having difficulty with, or are you here purely out of curiosity? This will help me assess your design a little better, with a critique tailored a bit more to your needs. Once you've answered that question, please remember to feel out this form about your character to the best of your ability: Name- Personality- Bio- Appearance- Cutiemark- Don't worry if you couldn't fill it all out c: It's just basic stuff to get you started and help me with the criticism portion of this thread. Now that that's out of the way, allow me to help ease any concerns you might have by showing you some of my own old character designs (from oldest to newest), because I definitely wasn't always very good at the character creation process. Therefore, you don't need to be nervous about asking for help or opinions on a design for any reason, even if you aren't entirely comfortable with the artwork yet. This is the fastest, best way to improve c: Note- I will try to make your criticisms more in-depth and specific than what you see below. Alora and Eris I'm going to start with two of my oldest characters together. As you can see, their designs were both very complicated, but their flaws were more than just in their physical appearance. Alora represented life, and Eris represented death. They were very overpowered, unnecessarily so, and many aspects of their design were downright thoughtless. There cutiemarks were overly complex without having a clear symbolic meaning. In terms of mechanics, they technically weren't alicorns, but I gave them just as much if not more ability than the canon alicorns, which is a huge no-no, not only in terms of show accuracy, but also in terms of character development because it limits them from character growth. In the show, the only characters with genuinely powerful magic are characters who's talents revolve solely around magic, but I made two excessively powerful characters here without putting focus on that ability. They were literally just powerful for the sake of being powerful, and that's never a good thing. I don't think I need to explain in too much detail why their physical designs were poor. When designing, it's important to ask, "why?" It took me a while to let go of the weird horn shapes and unnecessary butt mark details. Stardust After Alora and Eris, I went through a few other characters such as an immensely powerful shadow alicorn and a half-dog grimdark unicorn thing, but I'm going to skip those and move onto the next prominent stage in my designing. Stardust here was the first really well developed character, although she had some problems as well. Theoretically, I designed her as an apprentice to Luna who painted constellations for the princess to raise. My biggest problem though, again, was that I simply couldn't bring myself to stick to only a single talent. Her cutiemark was too complex, making the meaning very deluded. At this time, I was also still really stuck on neutral tones with blue and green, which honestly needs to be executed with more care when it comes to the plausible mlp universe. In general, though, she was much MUCH better than either Alora or Eris ever were. Picture Print That second image up there was by Cappydarn on DA, and I'm honestly still proud of it. Picture Print was my first genuine, thought-through character. Now, your character obviously doesn't have to be accurate canonically to be good, but having some semblance of realism is very helpful. Picture Print was also more honest to myself than my previous characters, and her talent was specific. To this day, I still have difficulties shunning her given as to how personal she was to me, and I'm still pretty proud about how I got around the no-magic, no-holding ordeal by turning her tail into a paintbrush. Around this time, I also had a deer character named Ahri that I liked a lot at the time c: M. Tealeaf My current primary character is Misty Tealeaf. For her, I think I've put more thought into than any of my previous characters. I stepped away from the greys because they were a trap for me, and powered her down compared to my other, older MLP unicorns. In the time between this character and my previous ones, I definitely improved my drawing ability a lot, but the ability to draw does not make your character better or worse. This character is technically better to me because I conceptualized her a lot more. I made her realistic, but also interesting. She's a unicorn pony with a special talent in potion-making. She's nomadic, similar to a gypsy, and travels with a mobile potion shop. I even added in a quaint little quirk for her where she likes to drink tea out of potion bottles, much to the shock of other ponies. Even her name was given more thought than my other characters. Her first name, Misty is in reference to her magic being white and her hair being blue like water. Her last name hints at her base coat color while also subtly referencing her talent in combining botanical ingredients to form new substances (potions).
  21. I decided to come up with a reference for my OC, Sugar Tail.
  22. He is still a work in progress, but finally coming along. He is not really a deer, but a deer canine hybrid. More will be revealed as he is worked on.

  25. So I'm a recent graduate with a BFA in creative writing for entertainment and I have this idea for a superhero character. He's an anthropomorphic animal in a world like ours who fights evil with martial arts training. Think like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Street Sharks, or the Mighty Ducks. Except dissimilar to the Turtles who mutated pretty early into their lives and the Ducks who are just that way because that's there species, my character is more similar to the Sharks in being transformed later in life when they have time to grapple with their new nature. Except that dynamic is in reverse. My character was a simple beast living in the wild and was then uplifted to human level sentience, intelligence, and similar body shape. (Island of Dr. Moreau style) Who is then taken in by a kind master and taught inner discipline and control as well as ethics and humanity. His main struggle is that because he's spent most of his life with nothing but raw instinct to guide him, he has to actively suppress such instincts in order to live a life even approaching that of a human which he desperately wants to be like. Not that he hates himself but after experiencing the wonderful complexities and depth of thought and emotion that can be analyzed and understood only with sentience, he doesn't want to be the baser creature he once was. While I'm not adverse to getting a chuckle out of scenarios, I do wish that the character's instincts actually make human-like life difficult or even dangerous to himself and others. Problem now is, I can't decide which animal I would like him to be. I'm thinking dog or perhaps wolf-dog to better express his dual nature but both those seem a tad played out. I was thinking maybe an elephant since it would make fighting evil and domestic life interesting since he'd be more akin to a full sized Autobot than the Ninja Turtles, problem with that is that it becomes increasingly difficult to up the ante until he's fighting kaiju. One of my friends suggested a sloth, which was probably a joke but it did get me thinking that rather than inner savagery he's trying to battle instinctive lethargy. I was maybe considering a tiger to better tie him to his kung fu but that seems both a tad predictable and there's not much I could do story wise aside from further martial arts tropes. Which while I'm a strong proponent that the genre can be used in more ways it's often thought of, I would nominally prefer more tools to work with rather than one. What do you guys think? Do any of my stated ideas seem good or do you have suggestions for another animal he could be?
