Guidelines For Using /Art/

- Be respectful of others and others' works.
- Don’t be unnecessarily rude about someone or their work.
- At the same time, don’t hate on people who critique your work.
- Be sure to report threads that don't follow these guidelines or the rules of the site. If you feel someone is being unnecessarily rude to you or others, keep your cool and report them.
- /art/ isn't just for artists! Everypony's input is welcome.

Artists' Threads
- Artists are encouraged to make one gallery thread for personal use. This includes showing your work, taking requests and/or commissions, announcing livestreams, asking for critique, etc.
- Artists of any skill level are welcome and encouraged to make their own threads, take requests, and comment on others work. Don't be shy!
- Artists who create a thread should have it added to the directory. Post a link to your thread here, and mention what sections of the directory it should go in.
- Artists can link to off-site galleries, such as Tumblr or deviantART.

Welcome to the new /art/ Tutorial and Reference Thread! If you want to learn how to draw ponies, you came to the right place. The internet has a lot of resources on learning how to draw or how to use programs. This thread has a bundle of tutorials, references and studies to give new artists a starting point. You can find the tutorials (including a handy directory) below.

This is a restart from the previous Tutorial thread made by Midnight Star. Unfortunately, a lot of the images have 404'd over time, meaning they couldn't be accessed. But here we are, with a brand new thread. Once again, thanks to Midnight Star for collecting all these images and links.

/art/ is always happy to help new artists. Even with the tutorials, drawing ain't easy! So be sure to ask the people of /art/ for help if you think you need it. And for the people who already have experience: show us how you do things! Share your own tutorials, or the ones that you used to become the artist you are today.

For those of you that use this board, how would you feel about it being merged with another?

The current plan i have is to merge with /fic/ and /collab/ into a single board (With a tentative name of /fan/, for lack of any other ideas) , but i'm making all three of these threads simultaneously so that plan is subject to change.

The reason for this is that it would hopefully encourage more an audience for the artwork that gets posted, more critique for actual artwork itself and an all around signal boost for the artists themselves.
I think i just said the same thing three times there, but whatever.

Another benefit to merging with those two boards in particular is that /fic/ could provide inspiration for artists, while /collab/ may need a creative artist for whatever project is posted.
To me, it only makes sense to pool these resources together instead of having them scattered as they are now.

In any case, discuss the pros and cons of the idea in this thread.
I'll give fair warning before THE RECKONING happens, if it does at all.

#Traditional #Digital #Canon #OCs #Gallery #Taking requests #Taking commissions #Critique wanted

Hello everyone, Seafoam here!

I take both requests and commissions. Requests are random and are usually traditional sketches, but feel free commission me and I'll tweak it to your liking and put finishing touches on it.

All my digital drawings/line art/coloring are done with a mouse, please be patient with me. I've not had a tablet in a long time and I'm trying to save money for a new one!

My commissions are pretty cheap, and I'm pretty quick at delivering.

Sketches start at 1$ - 3$ depending on complexity
Lines 3$ - 4$ depending on complexity
Coloring 5$ - 6$ depending on complexity

Okay, I keep running out of ideas, and sometimes my ideas for drawings aren't that great, so anybody willing to give ideas (hopefully within my range of talent which isn't too far) go ahead.

#OCs #Taking requests

Hello Art board! I'm fairly new on this board and I don't have any real projects to work on as of now so I'll be taking requests to draw your oc's for free! I usually try to draw as accurate to the show but my drawings have some of my style mixed into them. Anyways all drawings will be done in pencil and will be black and white, for some reason I can't draw well on a computer and when I go to color something I just worsen it. That aside if you want me to draw your oc please leave a pic with your post or give a description.

So i hope you enjoyed your noon with out me.

but i have to get out here to ask for some stuff

So i used to draw alot, but because college i just didnt did it that often, then stop drawing for some months, and then got back to do it, but it was just a lame comback, i mean, like 1 drawing each month.

then i stop again.

So i finally finish up everything i had to do at school, and i want to get back to it... but i feel awful.

My art was never good to start with, but now i start a drawing, and trying to do some guide lines, and im like "oh my god, im fucking this up since the start, that look awful"
even before just starting at all..... and i cant just start a new picture

ok, i will do....

emmm... this doesnt count.

Now, for being on a 2d plain on that old pic was because i wanted to show the 2 character facing up looking at the eyes and close, like they are pride and erect with the chest up.... but again, that doesnt justify the stiff pusture like you say, i will pay attention on that.

Ohmygosh I would love art from you, your style is so cool.

Would it be cool if I just let you have artistic freedom with my OC, Faux-Pas? I love seeing people put their own spin on things or just generally doing what they like with a picture <3
