I know it's been a while since the season finale, but I really liked Tirek's design. I did some sketches of him and him and Discord just for fun. They're obviously not finished pieces, but I think I like how they turned out. I'm not quite sure about his magic in the second picture though, that was just such a nice effect in the show. 

 

I'm always worried when drawing FIM stuff that my style is too close to the shows, that I'm just copying the designs without really doing much drawing myself. I tried to portray them differently enough to make them interesting to look at, but I like to know what you fine folks think of them.

 

Any thoughts or critiques are appreciated.

 

 

Also, the pictures are taken from my phone because my digital scanner is in storage at the moment, so please excuse the image quality.

The first one of regular form Tirek looks a bit weird. Maybe because of the angle...otherwise, the rest are awesome. Discord came out really good though. 

 

Thanks! Discord is always fun to draw, even if his face structure is a pain to get right.  I drew the first picture based on a screenshot, so at least I repeated someone else's wonkyness.

 

Or perhaps something just got messed up in the proportions when the pose got transferred from screen to paper. I just really liked how his expression and his fur were in that shot.

Thank you so much, I'm glad you like it! I made it partially because I saw all the people making cool character studies of Tirek, he seemed like such a blast to draw. And I was right! Trying to get the effect of his magic right was kind of tricky, but I think it adds a lot to the picture. On the other hand, Tirek's smug smirk practically drew itself onto the page, his character is so naturally good at looking bad.

Wow! I'm flattered that this was capable of shocking you into multiple paragraphs! That is of course assuming your being serious, which I never can tell over the internet. Considering your self proclaimed motto is about sarcasm, your post might just be the slightest bit hyperbolic. If that's the case then I'm still glad you took the time to post.

 

Or if you are being semi-serious, thank you! I've gotten plenty of compliments, but I've never gotten that reaction to my art! I never considered my sketches the kind of thing that ignites the human soul, but i'd be gleeful as all hell if you mean that! Most of my sketches I draw for myself, but hearing someone else enjoyed it that much is really great. 

 

Jest or not, feel free to tell me if I'm being silly! :)

I'm being quite serious, I'm not being sarcastic <3

 

 

 

I actually love your drawings, they are amazing!

 

Well, then thank you so much! Hearing that is pretty amazing! I want to say more, but I guess that leaves me a little bit speechless, thank you again! :)

Wow that is amazing work right there :o so detailed!!

 

Thank you! I used screenshots of Tirek as a base, but it was a lot of fun rendering him in my own style. It helps that FIM has a great visual aesthetic to work with for the most part.

Hey, those are great! If I tried to draw Discord and/or Tirek, you'd get an excellent representation of a pile of garbage. Yours are wonderful!

The best part of the drawings are the shadings, they're really good. However i would prefer more bakcground, it's quite boring to see a character that is in the middle of nowhere.
