For a while now, the idea of retiring the NSFW tag has been bouncing around. At one time it was used quite a lot, leading many to come together in support of the feature when this idea was proposed by community members in the past, but its use has waned over the years. In the past 30 days, only two pictures have been posted with the NSFW tag, >>127564 and >>127701, and neither image really warranted its use (though one of them is currently set as my phone's wallpaper ❤).

Based on this data, we'd like to officially announce its removal, as a way to streamline the rules, and make things simpler for newcomers. If there's no major opposition by any /art/isans, it will be retired for good this upcoming weekend.

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.

#Digital #Vectors #Canon #Gallery #Discussion #Critique wanted

I don't use Chans a lot so I'm not entirely sure how they work, so excuse me if I sound a bit clunky, but I decided to make a thread showcasing some of my Deviations.

I am not sure if any of you have heard of me, but I am Brickstarrunner, but I always prefer to be called Bongo. I have a DeviantArt account and make various Deviations with my main tool of use being Gimp and (Usually) working off of traces from screenshots from the show. Thus my art style tends to mimic the show in a way and doesn't deviate much from it.

In most cases, I consider my art to be 'Semi-Vector' By that I mean they aren't small pictures that can fit on your screen, but they aren't those super big humongous vectors either. It's a mid point where it was big enough to look high quality but small enough for me to work on.

A few more things about me: I cannot draw. I've been planning on getting a tablet and hooking it up to my computer and finally get some use out of Photoshop (Funny story about that. I have Photoshop as well as other Adobe Design products but I never learned to use them). I was hoping that getting a tablet may help me start drawing on my own instead of just relying on screenshots from the show and tracing over them.

I also do NSFW stuff sometimes, although I won't post it here though. I work off of sketches done by artists in the NSFW department and give them the same treatment as I would to a show screenshot: Trace over it until the picture is complete.

You can head on over to my DeviantArt page here:

Improved resolutions! No more squashed pictures! This is the art that you deserved from the start!

Other than that it's the same as my old one; I'll be re-posting all my old art as is, aside from the improved resolutions, so things that I drew wrong before (Sky Breaker's eyes as an example) will still be wrong in the transfer. I think I'll stress it more this time around, I really really want to improve and if you see something about my pictures that just isn't right, I can take pretty much any level of criticism, of course, I also like encouragement and not just long speeches about what I did wrong. A balance is good.

I'm thinking about taking a request like once a week, getting the requests and accepting one on Sunday and actually doing and posting it on Monday. It being a once a week thing I didn't see it necessary to tag this with "Taking Requests".

I'm hoping this new gallery will be pleasing to everyone and that I'll learn a lot from the /art/ community. Happy drawing all! :)

Yes I am trying a less anthro look more like the show

I'll still draw anthro stuff because I like it but I'll post my clean and non anthro here as well.

My DA (My cleanest gallery)

I have commissions available as well

But I want opinions on how good I am at Ponying and suggestions on how to improve!

Sometimes I like to make pony fan art. And I figure since this place exists I'd like to post them here. Mostly for critiques, any kind will do. Regular discussion about whatever is also encouraged.
Who knows. Maybe I'll be able to get myself up to commission level!

Revisiting an OC(and an offspring)that needs to be tweaked. I've given her the name Dusty Nebula but her color scheme has changed so much I'm not even sure the name works anymore.

I'm working out how to draw anthro ponies. (Not the humanxpony satyr abominations) Because I'm hoping one day in the future that I'll be able to do a comic or something.

Females are easy enough I think. I need to get back into practice of human torsos, especially males. And I'm not quite sure how to deal with stallion heads. Since they are naturally broader, it might look weird on a human neck. Unless their necks are huge.

Heya! I've recently been getting more and more into pony art and I thought I'd showcase my stuff and see if anyone is interested in sending some commissions my way. Here's a link to my dA gallery for those interested in looking at some of my other work: You can contact me via email at

I don't have exact rates, instead I'm willing to discuss prices with anyone who's interested in sending some business my way. All transactions are handled through Paypal, I do plan however to make a couple other options available in the near future. I do have a couple of rules that I'll list:

1. basic sketches cost less than full color work, same rules applies to doing a portrait as opposed to a full Pony. Pretty much a general rule, less work equals smaller price.
2. I do have limits to what I'm willing to draw, if I find the material you're requesting of me to be offensive or just inappropriate, I can refuse those requests if I want.
3. NSFW content is NOT off limits, however, as a reference to the second rule, I do practice discretion, so if I have a problem with the subject matter, I have no problem refusing to take that commission.
4. Finally, when taking commissions, once a price is decided, I will require about 25% or so of that price in advance, just to ensure that I will be paid for my work.

That's pretty much it, if you are interested in commissioning me, please send me an email, and I'll try to reply as quickly as I can.

An art trade for the wonderful artist GreenKnight5700 [] that I went a little overboard with. I'm quick proud of it ^_^.

Also, just a side note, but I'm hurting for commissions over here, if anyone would be interested, I'd sure appreciate the business.

I made a bunch of these a while back and posted them in /merch/ but I never got a lot of feedback. I sold the Mane 6 (except for Applejack but I didn't list her) but I have these leftover ones put up on my Etsy.
I can post pics of the others, or I can take commissions on these! The larger and more detailed ones (like princesses) are $10 and smaller ponies are $8.

I create pony ocs, draw pony ocs, and write stories or poems.
If a pony is not owned by hasbro, even if it has appeared in a mlp generation or book, I'll consider it an OC.
I do not have much drawing experience, I'm still fairly new to drawing.

Just some practice tonight, This is the first night in a while I got almost two hours, instead of 20 minutes to draw. Chess board took up most of that time, but still doesn't look quite right. Must be doing the perspective lines wrong somehow.

I am taking commissions, $5 a pony, $2 for every other pony, and they will be in this art style. Just please specify what you want in the drawing. No backgrounds, just colors. You can find the email I use for my paypal by clicking on my name.
