Pony Art by Shadelight

Recommended Posts

(edited)

Hello fellow ponies! I decided to start a thread that'll feature the pony work I do. I'm afraid that pony stuff is a very VERY new subject for me. Once I get the hang of it, I know it'll vary from what I first did. (I'm typically a very detailed and full paint kind of artist, so this kind of stuff is kind of difficult for me!) Kind of get my own pony style flair, but for now it's pretty basic until I learn a bit more.

 

MOST RECENT:

Here's my most recent piece of Shadelight! I changed her around and designed her a bit more to my liking. This has been her set design for a while now.

My first pony drawing is of my OC, Shadelight.

 Thank you for looking!

UPDATE!: Alright, so I went ahead and did a full out illustrative approach to a pony. As you can see.. it's INSANELY different than my first little dinky drawing (Which was basically more of a simple image to just rough out my OC!). Get the basics down first, then go at it I suppose. I'll be posting more as I get to them.

My pegasus, Skywing! She loves to dance and play, being a very active individual. She doesn't use her wings often, but will use them if needed. She prefers to run around on hoof! She also loves fashion, and will do her mane an tail in various ways. Featured in the drawing is just her simple work out clothes!

Umm..wow! This is fantastic! You my friend are a great artist!

 

Now, can I ask you for a favor? Can you draw my oc? If so, that would be awesome!

Nice piece of artwork. But I have a question. What software was used for the creation of this fine piece of artwork. I am curious on how to do this kind of thing, but I don't know any good software. This one used here looks like it would work.

 

I like your OC too. Pardon me for asking, but is it a mare or a stallion. Its hair looks female as well as the glasses, but the snout looks masculine.

 

Other than that, great job.

Thank you! It's so new to me, I imagine I'll get the hang of it eventually. I don't want to make it too similar to the actual show ponies, so I imagine I'll be playing around with a style. :) And I may draw your OC! I'm thinking of opening a request thread where I use a random generator to pick someone to draw. I'm not sure though, we'll see. I think I do that over in the creative resources section, right?

I use Painttool Sai for just about everything digital I do. GREAT program and not too expensive. They have a trial version too so you could give it a test run.

 

And she's a mare, but if she seems kind of androgynous that's even better. I imagine after I get the hang of kind of "pony rules" of anatomy, it'll be more obvious.

On the one hoof: that is amazing, you rock.

 

On the other hoof and in the words of Rarity: "why do you have to look so good and make me look so bad?"

 

*sigh... someday I'll be able to draw like that.

 

Keep up the awesome!

Oh dear, thank you! And just keep practicing and you will! I had to start somewhere too, and in time if you keep going you'll get there! Even I still have a lot to learn! :)

Thanks again Dawn. :D I just need to figure out how much I'd charge and a set style that I'd offer. I don't want to make my stuff a clone of the show style (Even if it is amazingly adorable!) so I should offer something different. And I'll keep my eye out for him! ;)

Yes, I do believe you puth those types of items in creative Resources.

 

And that is great! Thank you for think about drawing my OC.

 

Here he is:

Thank you so much! I'll keep doing what I love to do. :D It honestly took me a LONG time to get to the point where I am, and I'm still going and still have a lot to learn. It's fun though.

Thank you! :D Now that I kind of went full force though, that first drawing I did is basically nothing compared to my full illustrative approach to a pony. Oh well. As long as people like it! :D

I think I already complimented your work in your introduction thread, but I shall do so again! XD Your OC is such a cutie! You definitely have your own style, but still keep close enough to show that it's easy to tell it's an FiM pony. Awesome work!

And thank you again! :D It actually took me ages to pick an OC and a name for her. I went back and forth from a unicorn and a Pegasus. I actually plan to make one of each at this point (Unicorn, Pegasus, and Earth!) and I've been roughing out the idea for my Pegasus. I think the name is the hardest part though.

Oh yeah, I've got around 20 FiM OCs, and ideas for more! However, for my Ponysona, I at first went with a blue Pegasus, and later went to a black Unicorn (my avatar). I'm finally set on her, but for a bit I had a different design. Hey, there aren't any limits to the characters you can create, so just go with it when you're inspired!

I may! I've already gotten a few requests from people so I'd have to consider them first. If anything, I may open up a request thread in the creative resources section where I randomly pick a name from a hat. Just keep your eyes open for it if I decide to!

Goodness, 20!? I'm only considering three, but I do have other OC's that are not ponies so I can understand! I just love designing character, but I really love seeing what other people come up with. I already have my Pegasus mostly designed, so hopefully I'll get her colored soon!

Well, I said "FiM OCs", not necessarily ponies. There is at least one Zebra, two Buffalos, a Griffon, and a Changeling, although most of my characters are ponies. smile.png

 

Do you take any commissions for your work?

Wow, you're an amazing artist! The smooth shading is just perfect. Keep up the great work, I'm really looking forward to see more of your art.

 

Ps. You should submit this to Equestriadaily, that way you can get more known in the MLP artist community. :D

Thank you so much! I hope to get some more stuff done soon, but it all depends on my work and just if I have the time available. :)

Those little changelings are pretty awesome. I'm not sure if I will do anything but ponies, but we'll see. And I plan to do commissions soon! I'm just figuring out how much it'll cost and such, but I've had so little time to do pony work lately due to my real job stuff.

Thank you so much! I think I've heard of EqestriaDaily. I'm VERY new to the pony community, so I'm still learning my way around and seeing what kind of stuff is available. I'll keep it in mind though. Probably do it when I have a little more work to show people.

Hello everyone. :3 Just bumping my threat because I've posted a new piece of work. It's of my pony pegasus, Skywing! She loves to run and play, and especially dance! She also loves fashion, but you can read a little about her below her picture in my main post!

 

Sorry for being gone for so long! That's what happens when you're a mommy and work full time. :) I hope to be around more since I'm looking to get some pony commissions. Full color with a simple background will be available. Art IS my income, but I'm afraid they can't be super cheap but I'll try to make them affordable. Thanks everyone. <3

Been a while since I updated again, but my first post has been updated with one of my most recent pieces of my pony OC, Shadelight! She now has purple hair and a slight change in design and I'm so happy with her! :)
