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.

i'm taking requests! you don't have to pay for anything, i just want to draw. sketches usually take a few minutes, and full colour painting take probably half and hour+.
ocs are welcome.

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

Oh and my apologies for the shoddy ref, it's just temporary until I stop being sick and can just draw her :c

Anyway, I don't have too much money or time to buy or to get Photoshop, so I'm trying Inkscape at the moment.
>> No. 129325
Thanks but I will admit I made the pony in ponycreator v3.

I never heard of Inkscape before so I'll have to go check that out.

So anyways what inspired you to create your OC?
>> No. 129330
I'll give you three seconds to guess it yourself.
3, 2, 1,..
The answer is:
Myself. I did this character as the copy of better-me, so I can feel that I don't need to write something special when RPing as Hackwrench, I just write exactly what I would say in this situation. (Mostly, of course.)
But Gears then inspired me to make another character. It's in development by now. About it I'll tell later, when I'll finish my current drawings.

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.

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! :)

This would be a nice one for Valentine's day. Makes me think "Cherub" more than "chibi".

Real cool pose, I think the eye should be angled a bit more vertically though.

Twi's hips are a little bit more narrow than her chest, neither of them seem to have a neck, and the clothing doesn't quite hug their bodies right; AJ's top and Twi's bottom to be specific. Other than that this is looking quite good! Maybe add a few more clouds in the sky since that single one seems a bit lonely? The background is simple but effective.

This one looks pretty nice too, though I wonder whether she is floating/flying or laying on the ground. I think her wing meets her body a little too far forward, that should be connecting straight into her back but it's kind of going into her side. The chest fluff may be a little too large but that could be a matter of taste. Also maybe the eye on our right would look better if you rounded off that lower edge instead of having it be pointy? The shape/position isn't quite right, but it's very close.

Just bored as hell right now, and I know art is slow so thought I'd make a thread for general oc sharing.

Post em if ya got em. Not really looking for critique myself, but I'm sure other people might want some critique. Maybe.

Anywho, OP knows it's hard sometimes if you can't draw, so just post whatever you got. I won't judge if it's recolors, I do the same. I guess I could say my art is using gimp.

First one I have here is Ella. I use all my characters for /rp/, so she has actually has two different cuty marks depending on which thread she's in, so I left her a blank flank in this pic.

Haha, that's great. Yeah, short of recolors I have a super hard time with it. You just have to keep googling and playing around with the tools until you get used to it. And if you make a mistake, ctrl+z undoes the last thing you did, and you can spam that to undo a few mistakes. Theres actually a lot of cool little tricks like that, had to google a lot to find them though.

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 :).

Love the covers, though. X3
>> No. 129263
Nice covers! This kind of thread really deserves more attention, I hope /fan/ delivers

Uhh, about that... /vinyl/ is specifically for non-pony music, so it really doesn't go there either!
