It's been a month since I've started doing a daily drawing. And Oh Boy, it's been a blast. I didn't liked it at first, but little by little I think I became better... Maybe. It all started with this "thing" which I didn't take too seriously, but it was my first pony in a while. Close to 5 years without even touching a pen to draw. It hurted.24days.thumb.png.0b59a5f82f12ed3ea198e6691bf1165a.png

Then I did this. I like this style better. It reminds me about those old joke magazines like MAD.

I tried to replicate the last drawing's style, but didn't work. Her face is derpy without the cute. :maud:

I actually like this Octavia, but i have to admit, the lightning doesn't make sense. It's a problem I'm struggle with even today, but sooner or later I'll overcome such flaws. Aaand, here I began to make those horrible intrusive text highlights. They take a lot of space and later when it's not 22 days anymore, it became useless.22days.thumb.png.d5a186b8b91466ab78dc7579aac2c5bd.png

With this one I took a little risk. I like the colors, but they're oversaturated. Here's when I tried to do a background that wasn't just clouds or two colors. I didn't detailed that much, but I liked it when I did it. Today, not so much, but I kinda have respect to it.Was the first time that I tried to do a good shading... "good" xD well, it's not that bad.

With this one, I tried an old, OLD comic book style which I didn't know how to do. It turned out decent, but it's nothing compared with other styles. I kinda like it even today though.20days.thumb.png.18d7032c42b06608a14b49808795c76c.png

This Luna brings me issues. I liked the concept, but the final results are... Special. The perspective is so messy, oh goodness.

This I don't like. Not at all. Moving on! :unamused:

18days.thumb.png.8287c8f8252d22a52d4a8cb61a945107.png

This was the first one that I really liked how it turned out. I like the highlights, the background is okay, and the lineart is charming. It was the best I did since the beginning imo. Besides, Dashie with Tank is an idea that I'd love to do more often. This was the time that I've started to do certain things, like the mane style, the shadows and highlights, and more "dynamic" poses. They're still stiffy, but here I noticed that I was improving after a long time.17days.thumb.png.f40389860b0f28d7f4c1bca19b3fc4f9.png

... And I watch this one, and I laugh. Oh god, look at the expression, the proportions, the background! I thought it was ok, but now I realize that it wasn't that good as I expected xD It's not terrible, and it's better than the others, but still, it's not as good as the next ones, thankfully. That's a good sign. I like to mess with the ways of doing the magic effect.16days.thumb.png.eaf82aa3ba5b8084ec847ce3df448552.png

 This one is... weird. The style is weird, the expressions are weird, and even the shading is. I kinda, sorta, maybe like it, but I feel ashamed every time I look at it :blush: well, it was more than 2 weeks ago. I think I've improved. Maybe. 15days.thumb.png.46e360607d4add1f7851631e99094fe9.png

Now, this is one of my personal favourites. This is when I really liked how it was turning out, and I can't find any major flaws besides Luna's face. But even still, I think it's funny and doesn't ruin the whole image. Here's when my shading started to look good. I mess up sometimes, but I've learned my lesson since the Crusaders one. Oh geez... Welp, this was the image when all my mane styles started to be like silk... Not really, but I love Celestia's.

And this one... I messed up with the shading in a couple of ponys, specially in Rarity, but I LOVE the feeling I receive from it. It reminds me about those promotional posters from movie theaters. And I love how Sunset, Pinkie, Starlight and Twilight look.

13days.thumb.png.e8564f0e7df876d0e0c693b589b44fa1.png

With this one I tried to do a "good" background, but... Well, it's not that bad, but the pony proportions are messy, and the color is oversaturated again. I try to improve that even today. Keep it light and smooth, Eifie. Don't over do it.

12days.thumb.png.7b33197925c73d7f4864f7573df9aacb.png

This one was simple. Notice the sense of movement and the way the ponys point to the next part of the text like they're dancing. They point to each other in a way, and I think it's fun. I really like to do Pinkie's mane, it's so messy and weird ^_^

11days.thumb.png.b415fd4c1b3e7e95833a351c9d072dba.png

Even when I like the Fluttercord idea, I don't really like this one that much. The background is weird, and I could do the characters better. even though, I like the feeling it emanates. what I enjoy the most are Discord's wings.10days.thumb.png.3914dfbca77663b95868f812adefb19b.png

 

This one was fun to do. I love the Crusaders, and I enjoy doing them whenever I can. Even if the "18 days" image was just... Ugh. It's my least favourite. But this one redeemes that, right? :( (Redeemes? That's how you spell it? English is not my mother language, so don't mind me D: ).9days.thumb.png.19a8f21923b14ec9d18d90c7235f0338.png

 

Oh my. The Apple-Pie family is tricky, but certainly fun. My thing is doing portrait drawings, and the style is weird but charming to me, haha! (Marble's mane is my favourite. Maud's expression is priceless.).8days.thumb.png.5cd7bab3be9e328abc45532c9ab425ee.png

 

And this one right there is special. Why? It was the first one that I send to Equestria Daily. And it was published. I won't lie to you, I was happy the rest of the day after I noticed that. Then Sethisto started to notice my drawings, and ever since many more of them were published on the page. I'm truly glad of that. I'm willing to do so much more because I have a little more feedback. The brony community is the best. :yay:

Oh, and another one following the trend of the "13 days" one. Notice how now they're more balanced. Now is Twilight who has her eyes open, and the rest has them closed. She really is the princess of friendship, and I'd love to do more tributes about this fact. Kinda reminds me about the PPG.

6days.thumb.png.21e0c78d61d8cb28f5f9819c1b5238b1.png

I think this one is my favourite. The shading is the best 've done in my opinion, and the message is fun. Celestia is used to be captured, so we don't have to worry. Some magical thing will save the day at the end of the afternoon. Should i say i really like the manes?

5days.thumb.png.4951ed9e2f2b2b95bc26c3637a64bfc1.png

This has a special place in my heart. Ember looks good, and the lightning is divine. (Sounds bad when it's my own drawing. I'm sorry! :() This one is a close second because the colors.

4days.thumb.png.2d1b881da3a537cdc9c3b53346592969.png

 

This one is charming, and it's okay, but not of my favourites. I think I messed un a bit with the background, and the proportions are a little bit off. And Oh MY, what happenned to Sunburst's beard? :eww: That's not right! Besides Starlight's magic is light blue. Whoops. (Oh, you noticed the tea cup? ;) Trixie approves. And the prediction came true, Spike and her shared a moment in the season premiere!).

3days.thumb.png.ea0d3c6ee785a273010dfe3b47d6cfd6.png

 

This was fun to do, but MY GOODNESS it take a lot of time, and it isn't even that great. The shading could be better, but that happens when you're on a schedule and try to do so many characters. Don't do that, people! :lie: Outside that, it's fun to watch and the illustration looks okay.

2days.thumb.png.cc13e76ec25d0ae9ccd3021490a4ac24.png

 

This was the last one. Was the day before the season premiere, and I couldn't be happier. Notice how I get rid of the intrusive text since the "7 days left" one. I'm so glad about it. The countdown remains in the title, not in the image.

1day.thumb.png.ce2c6d948c3aac16bf159a6e2c93cc87.png

And here's some others before and after the episode. The "meme" ones are too fun. I'll do some more this week. :orly:

The title of this one is "Hiatus was just a nightmare, everypony!". It was published before the episodes aired.

Those ones, you know. :nom:

I hope you like watching them as I love doing them! :squee:

You are so talented. I tried to do a 31 day challenge and I barely got half of the way through without losing all of my creativity juice. Props to you my friend
