  1. Well, if you happen to be a drawer, for how long have you been practicing? I started drawing when I was 5 years old as far as I can remember, and have been doing since then. So, when did you start drawing, and have you kept practicing to get better?
  2. Hi everypony! hope you like my latest finished drawings !! Shimmering_Starlight ( My OC ) This is Jet Black he is not my OC He was a request from a friend This is my sisters OC Cloud Catcher! she was a request from my dear sister And of course we all know who is so I decided to try drawing from this angle and im glad didn't completely fail lol Just some pony practice .. the best thing about this is ... The are drawn with scented marker so the smell amazing!! that is it for now Thank you all every so much for taking a look
  3. How's it going guys. So this is gonna kinda be a test, I'm not sure if it'll be a thing, but I'm gonna try something. So I'm trying to eventually get a job as a help desk support person and I had this really cool idea to try a "practice blog" type thing where you guys can ask me a hypothetical question computer related and I try my best to answer them as practice. There's probably a better place to do this and I can imagine it being taken down due to it's not really pony related, but I probably wouldn't go that far just to get practice and I like this place the most anyways . You guys don't have to, but if you would like to, ask me anything computer related and I will try my best to answer the question. This would be great practice for me and if you send a question my way, I'll send a brohoof for it I think this is a cool idea and I would like for it to be a thing Oh and roleplaying as a user looking for assistance can be fun too
  4. Hi everyone! I have been practicing on anime sideviews. I also focused a lot on the wrinkles of the clothing and their poses. I'm really happy with the one of the girl but I think there is something od about the one with the boy but I can't put my finger on it, but I like it anyway, especially his head turned out pretty well Hope all of you will like it and if you got any tips then please tell me
  5. His Name is "Cozy Brew" I want some criticism on my style If there is anything that would help improve his design or my art Please tell me~ (cutie mark still in process) I want to get back into drawing ponies
  6. Hello, and welcome to the Redraw Group (I may need to come up with a better name for this). I'm starting this as a way for people to improve their skills as artists by using the art of others as a guide for drawing their own original pieces, or redrawing the original as practice. The idea is that posting something here gives permission to others to redraw your artwork or use it as a guide for the purpose of this thread. The artworks can be anything unless it's NSFW. Both traditional and digital art are allowed. I'll start by posting some of my own work. Keep in mind, art that is posted here is only for the uses listed above, use in any other way is strictly prohibited unless otherwise stated by the owner of the work. I would like to see some of your work so I can try to improve my skills as well. The goal here is to share our work with each other and inspire each other to try new things. The Rules: - List the name of the original artist of the work you are duplicating. Their name on the forum (or whatever website they are best known at) A link to their website, artpage or Youtube Channel A friendly mention that this is beyond a reasonable doubt THEIR work and your duplication is inspired by such - Be sure to the original work can be found in your post and proper credit is given to the original artist for that image as well. Add a link to the original artwork if it is on another page or website. If it is on the same page indicate which item it is on that page (check after posting to see if your post started a new page. If it did, add the link to the page the image was on.) Information about whose work the link leads to must be included. - Keep your advice friendly and your criticism constructive. Don't insult anyone. Don't claim to be better than someone else, that is a matter of opinion. - Try not to offend anyone. Don't post NSFW content here. Don't post anything that is hateful or mean. - You are still on MLPforums and must also abide by their global rules.- You MAY NOT for ANY REASON use an image posted here outside this thread unless the artist says otherwise. Example: You may NOT use another artist's drawing of your OC as an avatar.- While MLP related art would be preferred, it is not required.- If you are posting your own, original artwork, you should label it as such to avoid any confusion. - This group is always open to new members, and there is no need to ask permission to join as long as you follow the rules. If you don't follow the rules above, your post will be reported. If it continues, further action may be taken. My originals: First, Seamore Sandwich and Ink/Quill (Ink and Quill are identical twins, you can never be sure which one you are looking at). Links to their bios are in my signature. Then it's the Dimond Spider. I am granting special permissions with this one. If you want to use it as an enemy in your Roleplay, you may, and for that purpose you may copy and paste the following image into the Roleplay. Just be sure you give me credit for it if you do, and please keep the creature as described in the following link. If you choose to redraw it and use the redrawn image elsewhere, remember to properly credit me for the creature's design there as well. Keep in mind these permissions do not extend to any other content in this thread. Diamond Spider Sadly, I could not find my old dragon drawings. I know I still have them somewhere. They were on a level far above these drawings. I guess I will just have to draw them again.
  7. So after feeling a great surge of inspiration, I decided to finally share all my new signatures with you guys. Been using Paint.NET and so far it's been a fun experience. So this is what I have so far, feel free to use any one of these if you want. This thread is after all, for my free signatures. Pinkie Pie x4(Yes, I love this pony to death! ) Twilight Sparkle Applejack x2 Rarity x2 Rainbow Dash x2 Fluttershy(Christmas Signature) Trixie x2 So yeah I'll be updating this quite often. So keep an eye out for more new signatures! Let me know what you guys think and don't hesitate to give me honest critique if you want to. This is pretty much practice for me on the my spare time.
  8. Well, apparently my friend started a project of doing a fan made sim dating pony game and assigned me to do a bg music when I barely knew about music rearrangement. When I was working for a while my friend canceled the project and left me with this. I recreated from smile song and it supposed to be a loop one. I don't know if it's good or not but this is all I can do at the moment.
  9. It's another rough practice on my tablet and Sketchbook Express. Still in the middle of transitioning from Traditional to Digital art. I need to learn to make straighter and neater strokes. If you know how please tell me! Anyways, Have some Chrysalis!
  10. Just been a long time since I touched making any signatures and felt in the mood in trying my hand at making them again. I may or may not make a request thread again just depends still thinking on it. First one I made I'll be making more if you want to use any feel free to. A Pinkamena sig.
  11. Hello. This is a little thing I want to try out. You see, I have this little ability to make stories up on the fly. SO, I want to give this ability a little practice. Here is where you guys come in. I need you guys to give me a sequence of words, be they genre, nouns, a character(s), and I will make a story synopsis around it. And tell me what you think of it. You can take the story for yourself. I am doing this to also improve my ability to make RP stories as well.
  12. I drew a pony...cuz I was bored...and I needed to practice...
  13. Well I have really never messed around trying to actually try to play something out of creativity.... Always have just tried to learn songs by tab. Just got back into playing guitar recently but I plan on working with these two little intros I kinda delved into today. Just wanted some thoughts on them and if it sounds alright. Was a bit nervous on camera never really tried it before . But yeah I have been planning on getting back into playing more.
  14. WE'RE BACK IN BUSINESS Due to "light-but-heavy-enough-to-make-me-say-yes" demand from a few users, we are rebooting this thread! Starting from the very beginning with a new set of images. HUGE Thank you to @Accellerant for continuing this thread in my absence. I see so many posts on here about people drawing for practice, and I like drawing for practice too. And I thought to myself: what if we all practiced together? This thread is a place for us all to hone our pony art skills and improve upon them. I'll post an image and we learn by sketching it! Check out this example to see what I mean: If you really want to get the most of this activity (or if you don't know where to begin), then take the time to look here and/or here for some excellent anatomy explanations and guidelines. My practice thread is an opportunity for you to get a feel for correct pony anatomy in a warm and welcoming environment (as you can tell by our delightful brohoof habits). It takes a lot of time to get ponies right, which is why we are here to practice! And together we will get better. Just you wait and see! WE ARE CURRENTLY DRAWING THIS IMAGE: The sketches for this image can be found starting on page 19 THE NEXT IMAGE WILL BE POSTED ON: Saturday, February 15th To those of you who feel intimidated, keep in mind that no one here is expecting perfection. Do not feel ashamed if you think you're “not up to par” because I promise you, every expert was once a beginner. No one will laugh and everyone will encourage you. Practice is the most effective way of learning, so please practice with us you want to get better at drawing ponies. I'll be keeping a log of previous references. This is for any new-comers who are uncomfortable with the current image. Please look there for some easier options. And yes, you are allowed to post your sketches of past images. So if you missed the “deadline” or if you're just joining us, feel no hesitation to show us what you've drawn! LINKS TO PONY IMAGES FOR THIS CYCLE LINKS TO PONY IMAGES FROM LAST CYCLE REMINDERS Also, thanks to the lovely @Accellerant for helping me with this thread! Brohoof them forever and always. They also made this cute little guide on how to submit your sketches for those of you who are unsure. Happy drawing everyone! And sorry for the mega-long first post (believe it or not, I actually shortened it).
  15. Prepping myself for future, much more worthwhile projects. Until then, have this weirdness. Like, comment, and subscribe if u like it. Please. What Citrus listened to while making this:
  16. Started off as a silly little Rarity drawing for practice, needed something for Rarity to be angry at. This is the only time I will ever draw this goddamn thing. May vector later. Sorry about how dirty this looks. All the erasers around here are horrible.
  17. Hello once again, friends! So I need to do some non-pony art practice for a change of pace so why not ask me questions and learn a bit about me in the process? Source: Ask questions for art practice!

    I promised myself I would do something with SAI during the 31-day trial period. After 10-20 something days of practicing, I tried making something. I find it kinda rough, particularly the tail... What do you guys think? As always (sounding like a broken record now but eh), please point out the stuff I should improve on. I'd really appreciate it.
  19. This was mainly for practice and learning but it didn't turn out too bad in my opinion. If anyone's got any tips or experience doing this sort of thing, I'd be totally grateful for any help. Dunno if this is the right place to put this.
  20. Hey y'all! I drew some profile view stuff last night since i have monday off today for labor day, well, actually i drew this saturday night and last night, but still. ;p. Anyways, i was just doing some practice with profile view and drew my Ponysona and the mare OC(who i'm on the verge of selecting a name, but am to indecisive to.. help? ) Anyways, i don't think its really anything special, its kinda just some practice on profile views, but its kinda eh. I thought about using it for a new avatar, but i'm not sure if its good enough. I'll leave the thoughts up to y'all i guess though. I did experiment with trying sunset as the background, seeing as i've yet to do that, but i think the blue was to daylight like, so it looks a bit odd, the grass might've been to green to, not sure. But anyways heres the art! Like i said, not that special, i didn't draw the seperation of the peddles in the roses because i just thought i'd see if they looked better. Alot of expirementing with this overall. I dunno how well i like it, but i'll leave opinions and thoughts up to you. I only really used head ref lines on these, since i didn't know what other lines to use that could help, those even really didn't help a whole ton. I think the headshape is weird for profile view, I think harder to get then regular view. Same thing with the body somewhat. But i find its faster to do generally. I drew this in maybe 3 hours or so, possibly 4 i wasn't keeping track exactly. But considering its two ponies and a background I think thats pretty decently fast. I used a bunch of different references between my Ponycreator pictures, and a few of my past profile view drawings, but i don't feel like listing them all here so yeah ;p. I used GIMP and my mouse as always, so yeah. I guess thats all, tell me what you think! I know it needs work, because frankly they both have pretty blank stares and look kinda... soulless to me almost, but idk, maybe i need to work on learning facial expressions(Which tend to confuse the crap outta me.) Might be nessary before i can actually make any drawings of my ponies together without it being just this ;p. Regardless i've got alot of work to do, but i am happy i've finished two drawings over this 3 day weekend. Maybe i'll throw in another over the week or today, i'll have to see what happens after homework and other arrangements. Anyways. *end rambling* tell me what you think! As always tips,tricks, comments, critique, whatever really you wanna say or offer is cool i guess. If you think i'll improve it probably will help. Or if you just wanna say good job feel free xD. Later y'all!
  21. Ok, so since its been a while nice i last drew something and posted it(not as long as before the last time i drew but still.) and because i have this weekend aswell as monday away from school i decided to draw some art last night. However, i wasn't sure what to do, so i just started out at first by practicing with this tutorial a bit. Since this tutorial maker used reference lines, and recommended that others use them, i decided, eh why not. So at first I just started out drawing with my mouse on GIMP doing a black and white pony drawing for practicing proportions and seeing if reference lines helped. Of course i eventually decided i'd use this practice as a way to draw more art for my mare oc(Still yet to be named i know lol, i'm getting there, if you wanna help go here Anyways heres the art, so that way i can continue to ramble about it ;p. So I drew all the reference lines(Except more crappy, since i kinda fail at making perfect circles. And had to try quite a few times to get them to a way i liked them.) and i basically followed the tutorial to be honest, minus the mane style being different, no wings, the muzzle(Well i sorta took the general idea.) the cutie mark, and the background. So yeah its a basic pose really, the most out there thing in there is the roses(yes those are really badly drawn roses) and the magic aura. Everything else is a standard pose pony, this was mostly for proportion practice, and seeing if reference lines helped me since i never used them before. And did they? Well, i think that some helped yeah, especially on the head and body. The legs ones kinda confused more then helps honestly, but maybe its because i drew them crappy. But did they help, did they make me draw better? Well thats up to you, compare any of my work i did in this, to any of my older stuff, and tell me. And if anybody has any tips or uses references lines not used in this video they recommend feel free to tell me. Hopefully with some more practice i can get a good proportioned pony and really start working on drawing different poses.(And just making her actually look adorable, instead of mostly souless xD.) So tell me what you think! As always this was done in GIMP with a mouse, it took me about like 3 hours total i guess between watching the tutorial and the occasional forum posting and chating, aswell as of course the drawing. I'm open to critique as always, aswell as tips, tricks, cookies, or anything else you wanna offer. Hopefully one day i'll be able to draw some cute shipping art of this OC and my Ponysona, aswell as making this Oc look adorable . Later y'all! Thanks for taking the time to check this out!
  22. Practice, practice. The fruits of me working on perspective and shading today. Also poking fun at myself for staying up late so many nights doing the arts’n’stuff. I hope you enjoy!
  23. Finally cleaned my violin after a year in storage. Truthfully I've become rusty but since it's finally the summer vacation here, (most of you have been waiting for) I might as well get her back into shape. This time maybe I'll be trying to use her again with some songs I've wanted to cover for a long time now. What I feel bad about is that I've left her in such a sorry state after moving homes last year. I found the case covered in dust and was bummed when one of the straps in the back became torn. The instrument itself looked worse. Spent my afternoon giving her new life and the end result is the entry image you see right now. I hope this time around I'll get to keep her well maintained so long as I won't be distracted by other things.
  24. TL;DR description in the spoiler. EDIT: Also updated the one I made to a transparent .png file.
  25. Hello, I am looking for someone to create artistic media for MLP fan base with me. It can be anything, as I am looking into many things and have done one or two things of art on my own. I would like to partner with someone, whether or not they have a Youtube channel or they just blog. I want to make something for MLP with a new found friend basically. Here's some of the things I've made: , blog/report, and my channel art. Not much, but I've only just started. I hope to meet someone that is a good friend and that has the same interest as me. In this case, I want to make videos, art, music, and even gameplay stuff if need be. I just want someone with the same interest in MLP to be my friend and is willing to work in whatever we agree on. I for one am willing, because I want to hone my skills in the art of MLP, Music, videos, actual art, Whatever. If more people want to get involved, I'm perfectly okay with that. But one thing to mention if more then one person joins in; Don't be leaving one another behind. We are Bronies united, and in time, hopefully really good friends. Be considerate and give a helping hoof. Or this will fail from the start. This also goes for if there's only one person. You can comment or just PM me. Write whatever you will, because this is friendship more then a partnership. An application would be inappropriate in my opinion. But know that if you are doing this, you have to give personal information. So I encourage you to PM me. Thank you for reading this. Can't wait to meet ya. - Maxos
