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.

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.

Hi everyone. One of my first post for the brony comunity.
I am not really good at drawing (and at singing btw). That why I did an instrumental cover of Equestria Girls, from the first movie. I hope you enjoy it.

You can find the video here:

If you ask me, I can share the parts. You can also find a version without lead guitar at this address:

Another instrumental cover of the second movie is coming soon.

PS : It's not a drawing fan art, I hope I posted it in the right board. If I was wrong, I apologize :).

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! :)

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.

Are you still taking commissions? If so, I would like to request a series of pony and non-pony mythical creatures based off of a story I'm a fan of. One a month, I'm thinking.
>> No. 129217

Hmmm to be honest I've no experience with mythical creatures. Drawing ponies pretty much all I'm good at at the moment though I am practicing/relearning humans.
>> No. 129222
Oh, hey.

Alright, then we won't do the mystical creatures.

The story I am thinking of is called Alicornundrum by RealityCheck. I was hoping to get a few art pieces of some of the Alicorns in the story (Most are canon characters but at least two are OC) as well as a few non-alicorn OCs in the story. If you feel up for a challenge, you can also try to do the various Royal Guard Corps.

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!

Heh, thanks. For the most part, the way I draw ponies is a fairly pragmatic adaptation of the show's art style, geared towards being easier to draw.

I kinda want to try something more than that these days, however. So, with that in mind, redline me pls.

On the anatomy front, it seems to me that you tend to draw the hind legs with one too few joints in them, as though the hock was a sort of projection from the back of the calf rather than the equivalent of the human ankle - - e.g., in the drawing accompanying post #122737. See the attached sketch by Chuck Jones.

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

A drawing is not like classwork: there is no pass/fail, no percentile, nor letter grade; a drawing is a drawing.

The only person grading your work is you, and you don't have to judge it if you don't want to. A drawing isn't good or bad: it just is what it is. When something looks the way you want it to, keep that part: when it doesn't, change that part.

If you practice, you will get better. If you don't, you'll get rusty. You climbed that mountain before, you can do it again.

As for getting started: Love to draw, hate the drawings: take pleasure in the act of pushing the pencil around on the page, regardless of what the end goal is. Enjoy the process, not the product.

As me mother dearest says: sit down, show up, tell the truth, don't censor yourself, don't focus on the results.

Finally, let me just say: no matter how bad a drawing looks, it will not kill you to make a bad drawing: as such, you are invincible as long as you refuse to give up. You hear me? You are utterly invincible, an unstoppable juggernaut! So get out there and draw! Draw 'til your fingers fall off! Let nothing stand in your way, destroy every obstacle in your path!

It is better to just keep hand drawing and become good there, than trying to mix it up?

because im not really good either drawing or coloring.

#Traditional #Digital #Canon #OCs #Discussion #Taking commissions
Hello again, art! I haven't been around as of late, but I'd like to get the ball rolling again! That and money is tight, so yeaaaahhhhh.

I use the GIMP program, with an Intuos 4 Wacom Tablet. I won't be selling prints, just digital works.

For my pony commission, I'm offering sketches, coloured sketches, and digital paintings. Digital Paintings are the big guns, and could take a while to complete, and they'll be the only ones with backgrounds. The amount of characters in a picture will affect prices and the time it would take.

I will only work on up to one commission at a time, since I'm not much of a multitasker.

E-mail me if you want a commission done. I may not always be checking this thread. Paypal is the only payment method I can accept; and my account uses the same e-mail.

(prices may vary with each request)

Hello there fellow /art/ists and other friends, I wanted some critique on these two ponies and to hear which one you guys like more! Do your worst!
>> No. 129043
>>Do your worst!
I got a rule in this forum: if you ask for it, I gotta let you have it... lez do dis. X3

If you're concerned about show accuracy, the proportions are somewhat off: The torsos are rather thin, and the figures are short overall (about 2.5 heads tall, when show ponies are closer to 3.25 heads tall).

The ears are set rather low on the head, even if they're folded back.

The hind legs do a nice job of implying a sort of forward "push" in their posture. The foreleg of the figure on the right does a better job of implying body weight than the foreleg of the figure on the left: it's curved slightly more. The foreleg of the right figure seems slightly thicker than it should be, particularly at the shoulder.

I like that you made at least a token effort to establish a ground plane of some sort, with their shadows.

Anyway: looking good, hope this helps some.

Hey you guys.

This is just going to be a small art request thread.
In the posts below tell me what you want me to draw, and I'll do it.

I'm still working on my abilities, so here are just some of my drawings, to give you an idea of what my stuff looks like:

Everyone's welcome to give me critiques as well.
