Wow, it's been a while since I've started a topic. Anyway, I'm thinking of doing a comic strip and I've created an art style for the project. As of now, I'm playing around with it, but I was hoping for some feedback. Please let me know what you think in the comments.

I still regret inking this one. 

 

 

I'm working on the style with the rest of the Mane 6, but please feel free to give me any feedback (something that isn't, "your inking sucks" or "Get a drawing tablet")

I like it. I can't wait to see what you will do for Fluttershy. What is your comic strip going to be about? If you want to, you can use my character Regal Shadow for your comic. :) Anyway, good luck!

In all seriousness, I like this 'new style' of yours. One big, glaring thing to keep in mind is the proportion of the neck to the head- ponies have longer, stockier necks, yes, but it looks like Twilight's wearing a rather thick neckwarmer and that Applejack was in a freak accident with a giraffe.

 

Other than that, your heads are exceptionally well-drawn and your expressions are on point. Good work!

 

your inking sucks get a drawing tablet

I was thinking about having it be about a more, "conflicting" friendship where each of the mane 6 were defined by a different personality, rather than their element or trait. I'm still playing around with the idea, but I'm very interested in how far I go run with it. 

 

Sure! I could try throwing in a few OCs for the background / main conflict. I'm always in a need for new characters. Send me pic and I'll see what I can do.

 

I forgot to include it with the post, but whenever I'm done with "perfecting" the art-style, I was thinking of doing a request shop or something similar. Like I said, it's all very debatable, but the chances of it happening are pretty high.

Hello. I personally think that it would be awesome to have my oc in a comic! Here are a few sketches of Regal Shadow that I recently did. I will also include a brief description of Regal Shadow's character. (Just in case.)

Basic description of Regal Shadow:

 

Regal Shadow is a white alicorn king with black hair and green eyes. His cutie-mark is a golden crown, casting a shadow. He is a kind king, who loves to help the people of Equestria. He is kind of shy when it comes to getting credit for good things he does. (Not as shy as Fluttershy) As the king, he has to deal with a lot of conflict, and will boldly stand up for good. So basically, he's not shy when it comes to anything but being publically recognized for his good acts. Regal Shadow doesn't like to sit and wait, while other ponies do the work for him. Instead, he would rather be doing the work alongside everypony else.

 

I hope this information is enough for you to put him in your comic. (If you need Regal Shadow's backstory, I would be happy to tell it to you.)

 

Thanks! You're amazing!

 

Regal Shadow

I noticed two things that if improved upon, I think would make a huge difference!
 

1. Proportions
You seem to have the ears and hair down pretty well, but the shaping and proportion of the head and neck is a little off! Based on fluttershy's wings, you'll need some practice with those too! (Front facing wings are difficult, dont take that one too personally. I refuse to draw them for that reason. xD)

2. Smooth lines
I suggest investing in a drawing pencil, that way you can make lines smooth and easily erasable incase of mistakes or for when you line it with ink!

Last thing I can suggest is hand control. Just doodling smooth lines, circles, curves, etc can improve you a lot when it comes to drawing the real thing! You know how kids have horrible handwriting, that gets better as they practice? We are always getting better when it comes to controlling how our hand moves. Even if you're no longer a child, you can still improve that aspect! It might seem a bit odd but trust me, it helps! Learn to let you arm, elbow, wrist and hand flow!

Hello, Reality Publishing! Here is the sketch of Cyber I was working on. I hope you like it. (Sorry, it took me some time to get his cutie-mark right.)

Here is a digital version of his cutie-mark:

(Oh, I made this to be when he is Cybernetic Terror. So if he looks kind of evil, its because he is. Cyber Vortex would look like this, except just a regular Pegasus with normal wings and no armor.)

Thanks! Regal Shadow

Here are the new sketches that I was talking about. I hope you like them. :squee:

The sketch above is Regal and Cyber as young friends.

The sketch above is when Cybernetic Terror defeats Regal Shadow.

And finally, the sketch above is when Regal becomes an alicorn!

 

Thanks! Regal Shadow

 

( btw, how's your sketch of comic Regal going? Didn't you say that it might be done on Friday? No rush, I'm just wondering. :smug: )
