Place your phone or whatever you’re using as a reference directly under a pice of paper, and then hold the paper down so you can trace what you have on your device. The higher the lighting on your device the easier it’ll be to copy.

My end goal is to get to the point where I don’t need to use a reference and can just draw free hand, but I think this is good muscle memory practice.

>>42110892
Yes

I used a reference picture, and tried to draw based on the propoetions. I plan to draw Apple Jack next.

In all honesty, you're doing good so far.

So, here's my suggestion: When you're looking for reference material look for lineart, not fully colored works. The coloring process can make a lot of the details of the lineart get lost, which makes it a lot harder to understand how to fully pull off the look you want.

Also, the best tool you can learn how to do is make an S curve. Which is basically just making a soft s shaped line. They are used a lot in art when trying to make organic looking things.

>>42110894
Also, I personally don't recommend tracing as a way to learn as it doesn't actually teach you the fundimentals. Learning to draw via tracing is similar to learning how to write by tracing letters. It might be useful for the first time but if you just trace the shape without understanding the reason why it is the shape that it is, you will never be able to do more than trace.

>>42110924
I have very bad fine motor skills, so learning the general technique by getting my hands used to drawing specific things, even through tracing might be a good start for me. But yeah, I get that tracing and drawing are two completely different things, in the same way that riding a bike and riding a tricycle are two very different things.

MinervaCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 1 42110926

I don't trace, it's a canvas. So I just look at a printed picture. And draw on the canvas. I was a little.afraid it would get messy, but I am thinking about trying to use a small paint brush for precision.

MinervaCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 1 42110928

If you notice the top left is a little messy, because I didn't eye it properly in the beguining. But after that struggle was over, the rest fell into place.

Its okay to trace in the beguinning as it gives you practice, but trying to eye it gives you better skill. But keep on going Mint Horse you'll get it with practice.

In 7th grade, when I started drawing I wasn't very good. But I always found it helpful to try to use perspective as in drawing parts of the image that are farther smaller or bigger if it is closer. I like to use my hands to help me visualize characters. I didn't use the hand thing this time, as I just used two reference photos.

Most people start that way unless they are some art guru from birth. I was absolute shit when I started.

Yeah, I've noticed fan art before, but never really thought about it so recently. I was a bit close-minded about it a few years back, but after seeing this soundfx guy on youtube say that he was excited for season 5, this one great youtuber called Scribble Kibble had a video on being a female brony, and this one guy named named Saberspark on youtube that is said to have been in the fandom(but is he a furry is a popular question). If you see his channel you'll know why people ask that. But then I decide to not judge someting before I try it. Also you're a Hazbin Hotel fan. I saw the pilot, how is the show doing? Haven't seen the rest yet.

My favorite pony is Rainbow Dash, but people say that I talk softly and slow and I'm generally not aggressive. So I'm mostly like Fluttershy.

FYI, you don't have to keep telling people that it's not your art. You aren't going to get in trouble.
