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.

It's been a while since I came back here. Hopefully this place isn't deserted.

So here's a small, slow thread dedicated to My art and Fan art of my OC, Varla Streak.

The veterans here should know me as wvDarkSaviorvw, but I decided to change around a few things.

If you're inspired enough, you may post any Varla pictures here.

This thread will include recolors, traditional pieces, and digital vectors.

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! :)

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.

Well, I suppose this'll be a place for me to dump my art. Requests and commissions are always neat, but I don't think I'd get them through here. Constructive criticism is always cool, too.

Oh, and if you want to do an art trade, I'm fine for that.

#Digital #Canon #OCs #Gallery #Taking requests #Arting #*Boop* #❤❤❤❤❤❤

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.

Its NSFW content, but not porn.

Basically if you have sex or a sexual act then its off limits. But you can show your solo cloppy stuff there.
