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.

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.

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! :)

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.

This is awesome! Can anypony download & finish it? If they want, so they can use it for RPs? Or print as a coloring page? I tend to use random pics I find for birthday cards & stuff I print, & mail to friends & famil, via snail mail.

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

PLS r8 no h8 I worked really hard on this.....

Her name is Mary Snu Snu. :D She is Neo Shadows pet along with my necro Rainbow Dasher OC. She is a mix of all my favorite foods. she even is a feminist like me! As you can tell by her Bracelet that she is waering. I also have one like it!!! lelol! I'm trying to find more of her pictures that I commissioned eariler but no luck. I'm sure you will love her just as much as I do! I know its a bit of an old pic but I think it hold up rather well! ALSO NOTE the realistic Dolphin. It took me forever to draw it! Please don't be jealous just come and ask for tips and I might help you! I also put jesus in the corner because jesus is with you no matter what! ALSO LOVE JESUS. JESUS LOVES YOU AND YOU SHOULD LOVE HIM. I drew him being your bro because he does have the most swag after all. He died for our swag so plz show respek! ^___^ Her favorite drank is also Grape Juice because soda is nasty and should not be drank too much. Don't wanna have cavities ^-^ Donkey kong has always been my favorite gamer so I made her body type the same way! She is also Queen chrissys and Discords child! She is the element of disembodiement which explains all of her different limbs! She also has mary jane growing out of her mouse ears because i love smoking! 420 BLAZE IT. WELP BE GENTLE ON HER! SHES A LOVING SOUL! Just a day at the beash but dashie is afriad of the water! poor dashie! hope you all love it!!!1! :^)

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.
