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.

Nice references. I think I'll create my own style and figure it out from there.

Hi folks, I'm started an in-character OC art/ask blog. I'm looking for any criticism or advice, especially if you have experience or knowledge in this type of project.
I understand this may seem like a bit of a shameless self-promotion, but I really want to improve and make the most out of this.
If you're interested, here's the link:

I'm sorry to necro what might be dead forever, but it's been about a year since we saw Dhalia... Just wondering if anyone knows what happened. This was the most creative original pony I'd seen in a long time, and I miss her--I hope the artist is okay. I'd eagerly follow any of their newer works if they are still working on art.

Hi, I've noticed that there have been some really good artists that have been on this thread, and I have a request to make for anyone willing to take it on. I wanted to create an OC to post as on /oat/ and /chat/, but I am rubbish at art. All I really want is some reaction (Happy, sad, angry, surprised, disgusted, etc..) for a character that I have been making and re-making and now have a final version of. If you are interested, please respond to this thread. Also, someone drew what they thought I would look like as a draw anon. I was thinking the OC would look sort-of like him. If you want to know personality and backstory and stuff, you can ask me about it on this thread. Otherwise, I won't bother you guys with it.

I did originally, but some things came up that pulled me away. I've got work and other junk to do most of the week now, so I can't say for sure when I'll be able to get to those images-- but they'll be done, at some point.

Could somepony make me a signature for MLP Forums, something with Fluttershy and Lyra, and possibly an A V A T A R (because PonyChan replaces it with expression thing) of either Button Mash or that blue Dazzling that I can't remember the name of?

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! :)

Sunset Shimmer enjoying the sun no doubt.

As I was finishing her up, I noticed she kinda had a short build, and I'm like DOH! >< but then I realized, it was cute and a short Sunset Shimmer has got to be so adorable, so I didn't bother redrawing the whole thing.

Hello Ponychan! I'm Kryptchild, but you can call me Krypt if you like to keep it short~

So I'm getting off my duff and making a gallery/artist/thread thing here to help promote myself, maybe take a few critiques and advice, and hopefully make some friends along the way!

I'm gonna post some of my most recent work to start off with.

The rules post said I can post tumblrs and DAs, so here you go!

I occasionally do Request livestreams, which I'll be posting notices and links to with at least a day's advance. I love shipping and drawing OCs, so there will be plenty of that.
