Question: Where do we put non-pony art?

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.

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! :)

Thx! :)

I think the main thing that I struggle with in drawing is perspective. I have a hard time putting them in non-stock positions. I'm working on bending them around a bit, and you'll also notice I've only recently begun to do some more in depth shading; with me practicing these two new not-so-amateur techniques here, there are bound to be mistakes made, so if there's anything you see in my pics that seems like a consistent issue, I love constructive criticism. ^^

Check it! TwiTwi in socks. This is probably the "most suggestive" pic I've ever done. >.>

I'm thinking about it and it's really kinda a personal thing with me to draw for the sake of innocent beauty instead of arousal.

I get too many people drawing suggestive stuff for the latter, and so, I draw basically similarly stuff, but for a different purpose, and even if nobody else sees it that way, I do, and that helps keep a pure image of pony beauty in my head, thus making it harder for the borderline pics others draw to ruin my day by putting a corrupted image in my head. (Of course keep in mind, I don't ever want to be ok with sexually explicit stuff, but sometimes I'm too sensitive with stuff that is really fine, but because of all the bad examples, even those will sometimes trigger unwanted thoughts)

So yea, working on keeping ponies fun, innocent but still beautiful and attractive.

Hello, posters and pesters of ponychan /art/.

I would be rather interested in taking requests for digitally drawn pictures.
I might even enjoy doing a few simple animations.

If you would like to make a request, please keep it under the top.
And keep in mind, the less precise you are about what you want, the less it will be what you expected. Not that it will ever be what you expect though

Animation requests will have to be analyzed before I accept them, to figure out how long it would be.

I made a Tumblr yesterday, to.. tumblr stuff.

Hey guys, trying to get my stuff out there a little more. Wouldn't mind doing more pony commissions again. Feedback and stuff is greatly appreciated.

Not really into art trades and the like but I wouldn't mind doing a collab.

Hello friends!

I have been going around ponychan for quite sometime, trying to figure out an appropriate place to post my art. I hesitate because I'm doing the concept work for a current Kick Starter of pony-inspired minis. (I tried to email a mod to see if it's ok, but I got a Derp Screen.)

If this is inappropriate in any way, just let me know and I'll take it down, but here goes for now. I hope you all enjoy my take on the pony style. :) If you happen to like the art and want to see it in 3d, I can put a link to the KS where the 3d models are displayed, but only if anyone requests it. (I just want to be respectful of the board.)

Thanks again and here goes! :)

Old thread:

Whelp it finally happened, My old concept art thread I started in April autosaged and now I am starting a new thread, I'm going to re-post a lot of the old stuff but to be fair I will spoiler the old stuff but add some interesting new facts as well to shake things up.

To my loyal followers: As much as I love you all, lets keep the chatter related to the subject at hand, granted I am just as guilty for "deviating" in my old thread... :S

Well, to your credit, I've seen a lot worse, too. Art is one of those things you've gotta really work at over time, and even artists you think are really good will probably be putting out much better stuff in a year. So don't give up hope, and don't feel too bad about what you're putting out now, even if there's room for improvement.

I'm probably not the best for critique, but I'll try to offer some advice anyway.

The biggest issues with this picture, I think, in order, are:

1. The background. Backgrounds are something a lot of people skip because they're hard, but this one really looks like it's been pulled straight from the first grade. The pony is actually much much better than the background.

2. Line thickness. It's not really consistent and tends to be a bit jagged, which makes the picture look messy. I'm not sure exactly what medium you're using to draw all this, but that's probably one of the first things I'd work on. (I'd actually just skip the backgrounds for now.)

How's it going! I've been lurking on /art/ for a bit, enjoying all the awesome artwork. Now I want to come on out and say that I'm doing commissions.

I'm offering sketches, line arts, and colored pieces all done in Adobe Illustrator. It will take me about a week to do a full color and there is just a slight price adjustment depending on how many characters are being drawn. For the most part I will work on 1 commission at a time but if I happen across more free time I might be able to do 2 at a time.

Sketches: $1.00

Lineart: $ 3.00

Colors: $7.00

That is the flat price for 1 character. There is an additional $2.00 for every extra character. Payment will be via paypal.

sorry if you are kinda overflowing with requests but i liked your other requests and thought i would throw one in

so this is my OC Argentite (image was taken by webcam so its blurry)

i'm not that good at drawing so this is kinda the best i can do myself. i would like to see if you can draw this guy for me, now there are a few details that aren't really visible on the drawn image (such as body color, eye color and so on including cutie mark) so i'm going to put some needed details following.

the following are Hex codes
Body color: #626262
Hoof color: #4F4F4F
Eye color: #0D4F8B
Mane & Tail Color: #CD3700
