hello fellow /bale/ bros!not sure if you remember me posting this before, but I'm putting the final touches on an /mlp/ panel made just for (You), "Mare-itory Control"! It's going to be a mass Drawpile game where everyone draws pictures of their favorite pony and we see which mare ends up filling the most of the canvasWhile that's going on, I'll be interviewing a bunch of artists about what advice and motivation they can give to beginners. Here's a list of everyone that will be interviewed live: and several more have shown support and contributed thoughts but won't be interviewed live. If you have any questions you'd like asked during the panel, please let me know! A compilation of all these artists' advice will be posted here on Friday or so. They've said a lot of good things, I think it might help some of you guys out a lotAnyway, the Drawpile will be open to the public a bit before the panel starts on Friday or the day before, but I want to make sure as many of you guys are able to join in and participate as possible, so I'm giving you guys exclusive early access to make sure you get everything set up and prepared for the con!This is how you can join:1. install Drawpile https://drawpile.net/download/2. open this link in your browser and let it launch Drawpile drawpile://drawpile.wolvan.at/01g4nbvprtgskx69n89fsx8m3n2-1. if you don't want to do that or it doesn't work for some reason, open Drawpile, go to session -> Join, put this link in the text box at the bottom (drawpile.wolvan.at/01g4nbvprtgskx69n89fsx8m3n) and hit Join3. type in a name (or Anonymous or something, it doesn't really matter)4. enter the password: mareFamiliarize yourself with Drawpile a bit, make yourself comfortable, and be ready to draw when the game begins, Friday, June 26th, 6:30-7:30pm EDT! (on the second cytube btw)keep on drawing bros
>>38753818forgot to post the list of artistsAlumx, AnonTheAnon, Cammy, Clipper, Hattsy, Jargon Scott, LegendOfLink, Lockheart, MKogwheel, OJ/ahappypichu, Pabbley, Preserved_Plumb, Rhorse, SeafoodDinner, Sen/Senaelik, Solid Shrimp, TheBatfang/Batsy, WapaMario63, Whiskey Panda, and Wolvan(mixed in a few that do stuff besides drawing, since /bale/ isn't 100% drawing anyway. Hopefully there will be something for everyone! (and like I said, there are more artists that contributed that won't be doing an interview, but you'll hear more from them later!))let me know if you have any questions you want to ask them!
Touched up on my mare from the previous thread, she definitely looks better but I'm still struggling with the hindlegs.
Need help, Was artist who painted twi in recent bale post. This is a longshot question, but is there anyway I can learn how to make pony anatomy/proportions That the fandom actually enjoys? I feel trapped.

>>38753858>Alumnx.Daaamn, now I really feel like going, kek
>>38753818Yes, I have few questionDo I need draw fast? Do my drawings must be perfectly good?Can be a little bit sexy/cute? (like mares in socks)Can I draw OC's if I want?
Horse Time! Don't have anything new yet so here's another assorted horse.honestly didn't expect getting picked for the op pic, tis an honor
I think the position of Trixie's legs are off here, can red line anon help me out.
For Jambi. and yes I double checked AJ is not bald like engineer.
I seem to have gotten fond of this horse, been wanting to draw her more, the leg holding the glass got messed up, and im not sure if the hindlegs are right either, but it doesn't look too off, could have added the tail hanging out as well, but wasn't sure if i gave myself enough room to make it not look weird, probably could have added more detail, maybe a rubber duck or something i dunno.
"Join the army they said, it'd be fun they said!"wanted to do more background stuff, probably should have did more so it didn't look so barren, wish i made the pony bigger overall, she looks a little to small to me, despite me wanting her to be small, but not that small. Probably could have added more lesser wisps, so it would be more chaotic, or i guess really anything else would have helped, apparently i didn't scan this right because it looks off to me, i think i needed to take a better angle
Local Mailmare becomes small time Ponetuber gaining 10s of views playing her favorite moba!thought it would be fun to do a pony streamer/youtuber thing, Haven't played any sort of moba in years so I sort of vaguely made something akin to what I remember, I don't know why I chose that instead of like a diablo clone (which is why the health and resource is a globe) I bet Derpy would be pretty fun to play games with
>>38756008Bro, you are making soo many mares. Gud work bro.>>38755255unf
>>38754285Kek. I guess those vampire bats will give you a fright?
i made this quickly in macromedia flash 8 for the tf2 thread
Quick Floorb to test if i actually figured out how to upscale this stuff (don't know if that's the right term but whatever) without the quality getting screwed up. I don't remember if her eyes are green or blue, maybe something in between? ill look it up later.
>>38756410eh, its kind of fuzzy, but its not as bad as it could be. I probably should just start using bigger canvases.
>>38754632I'm planning on doing a few different rounds to test things out and adjust for how many people we have and what it ends up being like, so>Do I need draw fast?there will be at least one round where it's a free for all, so everyone will probably be drawing fast, but there will be at least one round where everyone is limited to drawing one pony (or one of each pony) to encourage new artists to join in and give everyone some more time to work on their drawings>Do my drawings must be perfectly good?of course not! One thing that I hope this game will encourage is just doing loose, fun drawings of ponies, it doesn't have to be perfect! (in fact, it shouldn't be perfect!)>Can be a little bit sexy/cute? (like mares in socks)of course, it can be as saucy as you want to make it, there are no rules or limits on this front. The drawpile and streaming service are both privately ran, so there's no need to worry about censoring or anything>Can I draw OC's if I want?yeah, you can draw any pony you want! There might be some limits to that in certain matches, like a non-canon mare only match or vice versa. The point of the game is to get others to keep drawing the same pony as you to fill up a chunk of the board with it, so I'd recommend sticking to popular OC's if you want it to be a serious contender in the game. Like I said though, we might play around with rules a bit depending on how it goesAlso, someone just pointed out that I got the date wrong, whoops. It's on Friday the 24th, two days from now!
What time is the bale drawpile on Friday? Does it start in the morning?I drew Rainbow Dash testing out light up booties. The eventual idea is animating her kicky hooves and light up with each step.
>>38754007the guides the other anon posted are a great place to start, but if you could post some of your work (or just tell us which one it is) we could probably give you some more specific feedback
working from reference, looking kinda funky?
>>38756924the game and panel start at 6:30 PM EST, but the drawpile server itself will be open all day and all throughout the con weekend for anyone who wants to just chill and drawmy original intention was to start it off with the game, and then let people stick around and let it just turn into the /mlp/ con drawpile. We'll see if people stick around or not>animationooo, sounds neat! good luck! that's a nice looking dash>>38756977>looking kinda funky?eh, it's a funky pose. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Rump could maybe be a bit smaller though, just bring the line of the back down a bit
Trying to get used to bigger canvases, made a Berry head as practice, also tried to get her colors right, luckily I found a website with her hex codes so it was pretty easy to do.
Does anyone have any tips on drawing hindlegs I can't seem to get them to look right.
"It all started on the day of my birth, neither of my parents bothered to show up."been wanting to draw more Floorb, ended up with the idea of her on one of those therapy couches (not sure if they have a specific name?) Hope her hindlegs don't look too off, didn't use a reference for this. This is the second attempt at this, the first one got screwed up at the last second so i ended up making a new one, kind of glad i did, i like this one better anyway
cleared the canvas at https://aggie.io/baleBackups:https://u.smutty.horse/mhuzyiiahoc.psdhttps://u.smutty.horse/mhuzyibnkfo.pngit's been really cool watching you guys draw and progress so much. Keep up the good work anons, it's fun drawing with you all
>>38757412nother' Floorb, the hair on the left is a little too clean cut, probably should have made it more jagged (or would the word be messy?)
>>38757085aww she's cute
>>38757772I’m retarded. Just realized you drew an ear. Thanks for redline.
Ending the day with a Fae! Tried making the body short on purpose as per suggestion and honestly I felt like it helped, didn't have to fight to make this look right as much as I usually do, ill definitely keep it in mind for later use. Been messing with how I do her cutiemark, I still want it to be a star, but I think ill try to make it more intricate, or at least a tad more unique.
first attempt at a scrunching pony
Bump up the jam, bump it upWhile your feet are stompin'And the jam is bumpin'
a little thing i did for /draw/ but forgot posting
>>38754285I wonder if this is before or after he develops multiple personalities
Jeez this took awhile, still got to get the cutiemark down though, apparently im having trouble making the star look right at the moment, this isn't great, but im glad i got around to doing it so i have a solid reference for her colors. filled this in by hand instead of using the fill tool, despite it probably being easier that way. really should have been using layers this entire time, some of the lines are a tad shaky since i had to redraw them without them being single strokes, which put me off apparently, at least there shouldn't be any transparence poking through.
New biopones!This time they're supposed to represent the JAK/STAT pathway.If you care: the Janus kinase (JAK) / Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription (STAT) pathway is a chain of interactions between proteins in a cell, in this case kinases: JAKs, and a more generic category of proteins: STATs.This chain of interactions main role is to convey a signal to the cell from its environment and then to make the cell react by activating / repressing or simply modulating its gene activity.To give (You) an example of this pathway being used: it plays critical roles in orchestrating your immune system! Especially by transducing cytokine signals.A very good explanation of this whole pathway: https://derpy.me/0bc06As an extra. I've modeled JAK's cutie mark after a cartoon representation of the JAK1 protein. Sadly, STAT's cutie mark's doesn't carry any special meaning besides being a blob interacting with DNA :^). The little envelope thingy STAT's holding in her mouth is supposed to be a phosphate atom, that JAK's given her
>>38759296sweet, I'm saving this for when I get around to drawing her!>filled this in by hand instead of using the fill toolthats how I and most artists I've seen work do it too, I think it just gives you more control, you don't have to worry about tiny gaps, and it's a necessity once you start adding in different colors for shading or details or whatever else>>38759411so cute! These put a big smile on my face, I love the little phosphate present, Jak looks so happy to deliver it!
>>38758675Very cute anonfilly
front facing horses! or at least two, both of these are off, CD's head is either too big or her body is too small, not sure which one in particular though, the bug on top of her head looks more like a moth or butterfly than anything else, probably should have used a reference.Mossy is on the small side, and her hair needed to be more out of the way, ended up squishing the rest of the face because of that.Oh and a side of Sweetroll, haven't done her for a bitWasn't sure which way I wanted to deal with the hindlegs, so i tried to different ways, hope these don't look too weird.
>>38759900I think CD looks more show accurate, thoCaptcha: SPYH0
this sort of happened by accident, but i kind of like it, probably the most vaguely human-like human I've drawn, and drew a Derpy for good measure, i had an intent at first for this, but I'm not sure what that was now other than trying out a sort of attempt at leaning, wish i didn't make the background as scratchy as it is, because I'm not unhappy with it. Derpy could have been bigger, i added her more later than I intended, so she conformed to everything else around her. The shoes are funky, sort of just bricks that look like shoes in all honesty, didn't really think that ahead. Was going to do more with the wall, maybe some graffiti or something, i did get a single star though, so at least i did that.
found this image useful maybe someone else can get something out of it.
Dashie drawn in chalk whilst hammered on my 21st.Still proud of it to this day.
something about this looks off but I can't quite put my finger on it
>>38760592There's no hock
>>38760636thanks the hock always gives me trouble, does this look correct?
Been messing with color, decided to do a little attempt at shading or i guess would this be considered highlighting? im not up on my terms, anyway, there's a few random scribbles as well since i got distracted, but nothing else major, her colors felt familiar, but im not sure where i have seen them. I need to get used to switching to smaller brushes since i always end up using the same one for the majority of this, and that can end up with the lines seeming chunky, or at least to me they do.
>>38760740The return of the hock definitely improved it. Still seems a bit off somehow, but sure why. Maybe because the rump trails to much into the hock making the difference less clear? Other than that, not sure. It's only the lower part that seems somewhat strange, the rest looks great.
>>38759605>so cute! These put a big smile on my faceIf that's true, that puts one on mine!I'm glad the goal of making anons smile with my drawings is slowly but surely working!
I said (or rather implied) ill end up drawing Paper Trail, and I finally got around to it, messed up the legs, was going to do a different pose with the legs but couldn't make it work, so I went with a more default pose, though I was sort of out of it when I finally did it, so its off. May have went overboard with the lines in the hair, and her eyes are weird probably should have left them uncolored, or made them smaller, her cutiemark is one of those paper fortune things, and she has a paper airplane tangled in her tail, and a paper boat sort of perched on her head, the tie has a paper airplane on it too, or at least an attempt at one. hope the hair isn't too much. In summary, she's an office horse who has a knack for organization and origami. Don't know if I should go over her whole spiel again so ill refrain for now.
>>38753802I still don't understand how to make these nice, stable, straight lines. It feels like every line I draw has a 60% chance of being wonky. Is it just a matter of practice?
>>38761542Draw from the shoulder, not the wrist and yes, practice.
>>38761542are you drawing with a mouse or a pencil?
>>38761548I'm still learning to fight the instinct to draw with my wrist>>38761554Stylus
>>38761560Yeah just follow the other anon's advice you'll get better over time.
>>38760388It's already in the OP but appreciate the thought>>38760361You should definitely make hooves less chunky and take a closer look at her left eye, but cute OP pic
>tfw I still haven't practiced for the drawpilethis is gonna be a disastercan't wait
>>38761560Also try making a line on the page with one smooth sweep, then try to draw another line over the top of it, do that a few times and then maybe do a different line. See how thin and non-hairy you can get them. It's good practice, and kinda fun in a tossing-quarters-at-the-wall way.
Anons with tablets without a display, how does it feel to draw on it? I was thinking about getting a cheaper drawing tablet without a display but I feel like there would be a big disconnect looking at a monitor instead of where your drawing.
>>38761683How does it feel to use a mouse instead of a touchscreen?You adapt to that disconnect, it's really not a problem. In fact, screenless tablets don't suffer from problems like your hands covering your drawing or any scratches being an absolute eyesore.
>>38761686>a mouse It just hit me that a trackpad would've been a more apt comparison, but you get what I mean.
>>38761683It's not that bad. I think I got used to it decently quick. Then again, I guess I was also already used to that kinda disconnect as I drew ponies primarily with a mouse rather than on paper prior to getting my tablet.
>>38761686>>38761692Do the tablets show where you stylus is going to land before you touch it or do you have to guess? If it's the latter I feel like I would have trouble accurately drawing.
>>38761683Honestly? I thought it would be impossible to use, but it took me no time at all to adjust. It's probably easier to switch if you're a beginner, but don't quote me on that.
>>38761699The tablet's drawing area corresponds to areas on the screen, so you can tap in different spots once you're used to it, but the stylus operates like a mouse cursor. You see where it's going to go, it would be useless otherwise.
>>38761699yeah, you can hover the stylus above the surface and still have it show up on screen without drawing a line.
>>38761707ok that's a misconception I've had for a long time I've always looked at those tablets thought how the hell do people draw with them lol, also do you have any recommendations on tablets?
Wanted to try doing a top bun, though it kind of just looks like she's balancing a swiss roll on her head. Felt like drawing Fae with her other eye showing, her ears may be a bit too down, probably should have adjusted the hair to compensate, instead of just working around it. Been messing around with hairstyles in general, want to diversify so things don't get too same-y.
>>38761721>also do you have any recommendations on tablets?Based on my own research, I'd say an XP-Pen Deco 01 V2 if you're on a budget or a complete beginner to drawing, or one of the more expensive Wacom tablets for something serious. iPads are also supposed to be pretty good, but I'm not convinced they weren't just memeing.The cheaper tablets aren't very accurate with small movements, but you could always just zoom in a little instead of spending a couple hundred more on something actually good.
>>38761858Appreciated Anon, I despise it.
>>38761858this made me kek
>>38759172Friend that resides in my puter.
>>38761752Okay, so the gears in my head are turning and I apparently feel like trying to explain this, so here's a quick and shitty attempt at a visualization of how I've sort of envisioned Fae's mane working, basically its sort of tucked into the scarf most of the time (the back of it I mean) so you don't really see it from the front, and from the back its sort of draped over the scarf a bit (if that makes sense?) when it's not tucked in, its in a sort of normal sitting position for hair I guess, also I guess this is a good enough time to explain her ears as well, sort of liked the idea of a sort of 'lop-eared' pone (which apparently can happen with real horses, which happens from insufficient cartilage development in the womb or whatever, my research is minimal at best, anyway, its cute, so I like it) which is why her ears are how they are, only ever really being held up by her hat if she's wearing it, if not, they flop over. It's nice to have a visual for this, ill probably try to incorporate this into her view from the side, sorry for the rambling, as always.
>>38761866I'm sorry anon. You more of a Dr Pepper kind of guy?
I'm having fun sketching ponies but my lineart always turns out bad and it's discouraging me from finishing drawings, how do I fix this?
>>38753818>>38753858start of the panel got moved forward 15 minutes by the way, now it starts today at 6:15 pm EDT! it still ends at 7:30 thoughcan't wait to see you guys there!
>>38762302>15 less minutes of maresketching;_;
>>38762307no, that's 15 minutes more! I wanted to take a bit more time for it
>>38762302*panic* idk if I return to home that quickly. I have obły half hour before event starts.
>>38762111I have the same issue from time to time. It is possible that you may need to adjust the properties of your lining brush. Mind posting an example of your sketches vs lines?
>>38761858Is this how pilk is made?
>>38762331>>38762302We can join midway through right?
>>38762656Idk + i have bad news. There is no bus. I must run.
>>38762302>>38762331Wait.....;_; 15 minutes after midnight. I happy that I draw with bros but still
>>38762302Fug. I'll be in the wage cage by then... Scribble a nurse pone for me bros
bumpan the thred from workponies cute
Ena Horse! made this to bump the thread but i got distracted. Trying to translate Ena into a pone was interesting, it was a fun i guess.
>>38756924no one pointed out i forgot her wings
>>38763770Dash was better before she got wings
Trixie gets a background for her show. Well sort of.
>>38763950I think I would want her to have a cutie merk here
Nother' Canvas, this was bigger at first, but i got lazy and didn't want to fill up the rest of the canvas, so here's what's done, i really like how the Fae turned out, i think ill try to get a standalone of that, tried to do coloring in this one, kept forgetting to change layers though, made it hard to color stuff in because i did them on the wrong layers. Hope this doesn't end up too small.
bale CHADS this is our time
>>38764596>mfw won't be able to make it to the panelPlease punch in a drawing for me
Fuck it I'm toasting it. Keep on drawing, anons!
Thanks for the great panel.
I was told to post my drawings here. I don't draw much (other than for TF2) but it was very nice taking out the tablet and hear some good advice. I should probably start posting here more.
I drew this badass filly doing a cool skate trick
Wrong thread lel today's and yesterday hexes
fun drawing with (You)
Respect for the nasa sector
drew a flut
>>38764861Here's the other one I drewI love her btw
It is yet again time for a page, for real this time, probably could have squeezed a few more in here, but I'm happy with this as is, Big Fae's scarf x turned out funny, was trying to be fancy but didn't plan it out and ended up with whatever this is. did the pointing Fae without a reference, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, sorry for the weird angles, I was sort of circling the paper around when doing this, singing Fae's lyrics got cut a bit as I was cleaning this up, but I don't think it made it illegible, hope the scan picks up the letters better than last time, overall was fun to do, probably could be doing more poses, I intended to do some more, but wasn't sure if I'd run out of room, though I could have made them smaller.totally forgot about the thing today, too much of a wuss to participate myself, but I hope everyone has/had a good time
>>38765048holy shit the words got butchered, sorry about that, that's what I get for screwing with the settings.
>>38764888Based lyra poster.>>38765048For a moment I thought she was singing 8 melodies
>>38765105correct me if I'm wrong, but you mean like from Mother? actually that would have been a good idea.
>>38765029After 100 years fucking around on ms paint I return to Krita
wislsI don't think I like Drawpile much. I switched to the zoom tool and then tried to zoom in and ended up drawing a line across the canvas because it automatically switched me back to brush for some reason. This happened multiple times. Also at one point I drew an eye, decided I didn't like it and erased it, redrew the eye, drew something over it, hit undo to remove it, accidentally hit it too many times and got the old eye back, and when I hit redo somehow ended up with both the old and new eye, so I had to erase both of them.
>>38765528How'd you get your sketch to look so good are you using a tablet?
>>38755255Could be one or the other but the hoof could be lower
>>38765638The issue isn't the position I think, it's the joints.
Another cover horse coming up, this time for the album cover of Blackmagik Blazing by Camellia, I've tried doing this before but always strayed from the original intent, this is pretty sketchy, didn't really fill things in cleanly this time around either, it was fun though.also on a side note, I'd like to shill "Nasty *Nasty * Spell" it's my favorite from this album
>>38765617Yeah, a tablet and the pencil 2 brush on krita
>>38765669I like her shawl
>>38764719very nice luna
The Artist Training Grounds (ATG) will now start on July 1st according to a new post on equestria daily. The ATG is a 30 day pony drawing challenge - draw 1 prompt per day. I'm not linking the post since it shows anthro shit, but you can always interpret prompts to be canon/ponies. All /bale/chads are invited to participate! It's great fun and practice!
>>38766836Terrifying. I want to vomit.
>>38764719Her tiny butt excites me so
>>38767017The filly looks huge and masculine
>>38766836keep the eyes at the halfway mark of the head, biggen the ears, biggen the hair, small the snoot, narrow the far eye to sell that the head is round
>>38767063Sure. I'll give that a go
Couldn't decide if I wanted to draw Celestia or Luna so here's a generic princess as compromise, let's just pretend its your princess of choice. Her muzzle(snoot?) could have been more 'princess like' but I didn't like how it turned out, so I did this instead.
>>38765597You can hold CTRL and then use the scroll wheel to zoom in and out. I've been using drawpile for a while as my sole drawing software, and after getting use to the nuances it becomes very comfortable.

Hope I'm numbering these right, anyway, Fae Page! Wanted to do some poses, on the left we have what was supposed to be a stretching Fae, but it just looks like she's sort of vibrating, the right one I just referenced through a quick dumpster dive of google, it didn't turn out too bad, probably should just save as many pose references as I can when ever I find them, but I'm too lazy, the rest of these are more or less doodles, wish I started this on a new page instead of using the rest of the room of an old one, so I had the room to do more poses, but there's always next time. Also, I used the wrong 'to', but at that point I'm just nitpicking.>captcha: 20KHPdang thats alot of health!
>>38769668>Belly arch too low though, makes her look pregnantna it wasn't, there'd be a bit more of a bulge if that was the case>I think this face is a lot betterThanks, hope my thought process come across well with my construction lines sketch
Good, Bad, I'm the one with the horn.
>>38769587Cute. Not sure about the role of the light here, adds almost nothing. I'd rather you'd sell the roundness and the proportions of the style.

hi guys, opinions on krita for animation?
>>38771982i really wanna try it
>>38771982basic capabilites for frame-by-frame are there and perfectly fine. nothing for any other production technique.
Been wanting to try out an interior, wish I made this way bigger so I could have actually had a decent looking Fae, at this point I probably should just look up tutorials for this, it makes more sense than floundering around and hoping for the best, wasn't sure what to do once I got the walls, table and bed done, so I just sort of threw some random bullshit on the ground, should have just drew some drawers or something, didn't want to room to feel too big, or empty. though as is, I'm not unhappy with this, its a start at least, probably could look at some reference next time, so I have a actually idea of what I'm going for. Some of the stuff on the shelves are just nonsense objects with little meaning, after the first few I couldn't think up of anything, so I sort of went with whatever shapes i could think of, and went from there.
>>38772311on another note, in general, when I end up doing another iteration of this, ill probably try to make the room more round, since this would be in a mage tower, may have to figure out perspective to make it look nice as well, so that will be an interesting rabbit hole to dive down.
>>38772001wanna try it with me?
I did this
>>38772935pretty good but I feel like the back of her neck cuts off too soon
>>38772943NotedI'm still getting the hang of digital drawing
First time posting a drawing in this thread, I came up with a random oc and drew it. If anyone can share me a hair tutorial I would appreciate it cuz' I have no idea how to draw hair and just kinda winged it.
>>38773027The ponepaste in the OP has a google doc with a lot of tutorials I'm pretty sure there's a hair tutorial in there
how would you anons feel about scheduling a time to draw together so we can critique each other in real time?
>>38773342Hanging out with other /bale/ anons sounds fun
>>38773342yeah, the aggie is always at its best when its active with a lot of people at the same time
So, I decided to give Krita another shot, tried it years ago but gave up pretty quickly, picked it up again since i felt more comfortable with digital a tad more, was actually a rather decent experience, hope this isn't blindingly white, don't know how to change the background color yet (or even if i can). This is just some random ass doodles as i get used to it, also I'm not sure how to make these smaller, this feels like a rather big file size compared to what I'm used to.
so, for those who didn't check out /mlp/con, my lyra tulpa drew this a while back and when I talked about it on stream the entire convention was consumed
>>38773824so I drew her again
>>38773828I hate mushrooms
Having a tulpa doesn't mean you're a schiz-->>38773828
do you think mushrooms feel?
>>38773824yeah, shoulda voted this for BEST WHATEVER ELSEbtw, there's still time to submit her to DeviantArt if you want a unicorn badgehttps://www.deviantart.com/team/journal/Tutorial-Draw-a-Unicorn-with-griffsnuff-915026559
>>38773369Thanks, is that everything? I kinda felt like the head or maybe neck is a bit off.
>>38773342I can barely draw a basic pose in like 2 hours
>>38773857Having a tulpa makes you the GOOD kind of schizo. The fun kind.
>>38773921I don't use deviantart.
Hey guys, mare-itory anon here. Thanks to all of you that came by and participated in my panel, I hope you were able to enjoy it! A lot of these have been posted in the con thread, but let me just dump a bunch of links here that might be nice for some of you to haveFirst off: a compilation of advice and motivation from popular board artists https://derpy.me/zbokfthese are all from a survey I sent out to help plan and organize the panel. Lots of good stuff here, and most of it wasn't even mentioned during the panelNext, the recording of the panelhttps://pony.tube/videos/watch/playlist/22ed0e2e-2f76-450a-9247-b2a912536d3e?playlistPosition=4as soon as I get some time I'm going to upload a version with the audio in the beginning fixed so you can actually hear the people at the startand here's a youtube mirror that's missing the first 10 minutes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRsAc33R4P4Finally, the canvases themselvesRound 1source .ora file: https://u.smutty.horse/mhvuoskmcmh.ora4k uncompressed png: https://u.smutty.horse/mhvuosuhuwh.pngRound 2source .ora file: https://u.smutty.horse/mhvusfdjasg.ora4k uncompressed png: https://u.smutty.horse/mhvusfazzyg.pngThanks again for your participation and support, I really enjoyed putting this together, and I want to find an excuse to do more stuff like it in the future>>38773824best thing to happen to the con, I hope numget sticks around for a while I can't tell you how proud I am that this huge new board meme was made by one (two?) of our own /bale/chads. You're gonna make it, anon (both of you)>>38773828kek, nice. I can't wait to see what else comes from this
>>38773993crap, I missed a newline in the round one links numget
Our local nurse enjoyer has inspired me, wish she came out better, Krita is nice, but also a tad more daunting to use than some of the others im used to, it's a good investment though.
Boopmessing around in Krita, hope i finish this page up by tonight, also as one may be able to tell, i figured out how to crop things into a new picture, so that's neat
>>38773342Seriously, seconding this idea or something like it - would love to hang out in a cytube chat with you guys or something, just draw together, hang out and maybe watch or listen to stuff
>>38773342Sounds like fun.
drew a mare with a hat, this hat feels familiar, but I don't know what kind it is. Been more successful with my hats being more 'naturally' fitting to a ponies head, less floating than it was before, her mane could have been better though, sort of limp at the moment.
>>38776041oh I remember what it reminds me of, its like one of those fisher hats, but more fashion-y
>>38774922Cute nurse! You love to see it!!
>>38775842>>38775832>>38773444>>38773363Seems like we have enough interest now to just figure out a time and place
New creative block from Lauren Faust. It doesn't has a lot of pony but it does gives you a lot of insight in regards of working in the industryhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqIqtUcF0zs
https://u.smutty.horse/mhxdajnkufa.mp3Now that the con is officially over I can get back to my previous process of 'git good' at using Lmms, today was a attempt at understanding how the Mt Power DrumKit2 works (apparently its not possible to just copy paste the 'grooves' pre-made sample, they need to be first drag into notepad, saved and imported back as generic midi file). Also Vul if you see this post, thank you for that song making panel, it was really inspirational.>>38776198Oooh, nice find Anon, hopefully Lauren will spill some beans on that witch cartoon that has returned to her when the netflix animation section was nuked away.

>>38776153fyi I responded twice>>38775832>>38773363
>>38776424she mentioned that right now she is working with smaller animation companies, not indie per see but less known
>>38776557Combining art and green is a fun idea, keep going with it anon! I certainly have wanted to do similar things in the past. I don't have much for critiques since I'm not much of a writer, but I thought it sounded good so far.

>>38776627I am envious of your mane drawing skillz
>>38776776Not my drawing, I must add.Just though it was a good reaction.
Been practicing pone heads and bodies for a bit.
little moon Luna poster thing that I had the idea for, was going to color it, but I cropped this after I already saved and reopened the page, which I didn't think about til it was too late. May make a new one that's bigger when I get around to it. on another note, doing these sort of pages of pones have sort of gotten me more individual drawings than i expected, it's nice, though the full page isn't really anything interesting, didn't even finish it, probably won't post it, sort of redundant
>>38777092eh, screw it, ill just post it for posterity, kind of lost my groove near the 'end' (or rather the point at which I stopped) doing that Yarrow thing kind of took it out of me for some reason. it'd be weird to post the one after with a '3' without showing the '2', I guess this is has become a almost daily thing? just sort of doodling pones throughout the day and pick and choose the ones I like most to make more 'individual' its been fun so far that's for sure. Should do some more bodies, sort of gotten into that weird place where i want to just draw faces, want to break that so i don't get to complacent.
In your guys' opinion does using references for your drawings too much hinder your ability to improve?
>>38777181no, i dont think so. I think having references are a great way to get an idea on how something looks, and then studying how it looks that way and why it looks good can help you improveI know i use references frequently when trying to figure out pony poses
>>38777115I like mistake, she looks like a silly pony
>>38777181I guess it depends on the reference in question, for the most part, its not a big deal, but I'm sure if you aren't careful you may pick up on another artist's habits (if that makes sense?) For example, using a reference from an artist with a rather outlandish style can influence one's drawing, if anyone's concerned, I'd say just use more show accurate references, but it's usually fine, it's nice to experiment, and yeah, poses are a big reason to use a reference, sort of gives you a baseline of what you want to do, and it's up to you how you will deviate from there.
>>38777115I sense delta rune in there
>>38777181Not really. Tracing, on the other hand, kind of does
Draw belly or preening?
>>38777836>canvas didn't crop properlywas originally going to try practice drawing snowponies with this piece but I ended up practicing shading and highlighting insteadwhoops
Friendship used to make me so queasy queasy. But you all made it so easy easy. Based off a friends steam game habits.
Inspiration strikes in the darndest times. Or its a giant fist.
Idk how i feel about this one. Def could familiarize myself with this body type.
Man, this takes awhile, but I'm sure it will be worth it in the long run, currently doing a background, will probably try to make it less flat, i guess that means ill end up having to try to shade this, once i get to the ponies, there probably will be a decent amount of them, not sure what exactly im going for yet, other than a gathering of sorts, Using a mouse for this is rather time consuming, but it's not that bad. Sorry for the shaky lines, haven't make anything this large before, will end up having to do something with the stage lights, not sure exactly how ill pull it off yet though.>captcha: YD4RKI too, am perplexed by the darkness.
>>38779303I love how you seem to be focused on the story /around/ the ponies, or the characterization of the ponies, rather than purely on pony anatomy or something like that. I admire it, I want to put more of that into my art. Where do you get your inspiration from?
>>38779324Music is a big one for me, my mind loves to make up stuff when listening to it, haven't really put it down into anything coherent until now, and its nice to do that's for sure. I've always liked pictures with stories to tell, or I guess I mean that have a purpose, I've always liked art and writing, but never had the courage to really pursue it until recently, it's been a rather interesting journey so far, and I'm happy to have a place to share it.
>>38779303Did an attempt at shading, and also added light things to the stage lights, feels less flat, though this probably isn't right, but its better than nothing, ill end up doing the ponies next, I think I have an idea on how ill proceed, but ill probably need to use my room wisely. Was going to try to have the lights shine on the stage, but I'm not sure how to pull it off, so ill just let the shading of the ponies do the talking for when i get to it, i guess this is technically a project? certainly putting a lot more into this then i usually do.

>>38779457yeesss.... mare time! just have to make sure i don't draw these on the wrong layers.
update bump! many mares will be drawn, and good times will be had.realized i started color coding the pones, ill try to diversify them from here on out
Do you guys have any tips on using a drawing tablet I just got mine and I'm struggling
>>38780056What are you struggling with?
>>38780059My lines look pretty shitty and my drawings just look off
>>38780067Compared to drawing on regular paper? Or are you starting with a tablet? Are you wearing that weird half glove thing? Without it there's some friction between your hand and the plastic that could interfere with your pen movement.
>>38780090Yeah my paper and mouse drawings look way better, I tried the glove thing for a bit but it felt weird maybe wearing it will help.
>>38780101Also, keep in mind cheaper tablets are quite bad at small movement, if you're drawing small details it's best to zoom in.
Alrighty, this is mostly done, I probably should add more pones onto the stage, but for right now, I think ill set this aside, this was fun. The ponies probably vary in quality quite a bit, and some are smaller than others, which is 'sort of' intentional, I settled on a sort of community center sort of gathering, ponies hanging out and doing stuff in a sort of auditorium dome-thing, wish I had some story to tell with this, but there's a tad to much going on to pin point a specific point of interest. I tried to do more varied colored pones, though I'm not sure how I feel about that one two toned one in the center bit, probably should have make her mane one single color. Hope the shading isn't too all over the place, I settled on the stage lights sort of being the source, though I probably didn't pull that off.
Hey, just putting some feelers out there, not committing to anything, but would any of you /bale/ anons be interested in watching a fellow /bale/ anon draw? I was thinking maybe I could stream or something.
>>38780669Yeah been wanting to watch someone draw pones for awhile but can't really find anyone who streams it
>>38780110Ok I finally got the hang of the drawing tablet not sure if I was just being retarded earlier or if something just clicked but I was able to draw this using >>38776627 as a reference
so I was screwing around with my pen, and ended up with this, it's sketch-less so it's sort of funky looking(especially the face and hindleg), but the hatching I was trying to do sort of aligned just right for a moment and I actually kind of liked it, unfortunately, the scan doesn't do this all that much justice, but either way, I feel like I have a better grasp on it than I did before, might try doing some cross-hatching in something sooner or later, but probably planned out unlike this one. There's other stuff here to, I'm just too tired to crop them out at the moment. (on another note the Fae here has a too-big head, which sucks, I kind of liked it)
>>38780442>Alrighty, this is mostly done, I probably should add more pones onto the stage, but for right now, I think ill set this aside, this was fun.It looks fun. I like all the little details with food on the tables and how they’re all do something. >The ponies probably vary in quality quite a bit, and some are smaller than others, which is 'sort of' intentionalI don’t think this can helped. From what I’ve seen in the various comics/manga, this is normal.

Drawing based on a friends OC. A little effort goes a long way.

>>38783063>fucked up the spoilerwell, you can't win them all.
Some expression practicei still have chicken scratch though
I'm having trouble on drawing muzzles and eyes, anybody, the structure of the face too. Usually they don't seem to convey any emotion when I draw it. Would love a helpful tip!
>>38783707Gonna sound weird and cringe, but I'd recommend to use yourself as the model. Get in front of a mirror and gesticulate some expressions.
>>38783598above average sized snoofa, witnessed, >>38783707can't see shit my man.
>>38783063You're doing the right thing, fren. Keep following what inspires you, even if you think it strange. I've certainly done some weird-ass stuff on a whim.
I really shouldn't complain. I get to poni poni through the rest of humanity's golden age and then go to Equestria when shit hits the fan.

>>38784141first time every scraping character limit, and I'm not even done with this, guess while I'm here ill just quickly say that I wish I had actually made a background for this one, instead of that sort of tiled void, not sure if I should continue of not? I didn't really plan on this being more than one post
>>38784141>>38784150I'm curious, I thought it was a console ponies thing but it clearly isn't--I'm intrigued
>>38784434Yeah the whole 'generations' thing may have been confusing, I think 'model' would have been a better word, though i kind of like the whole 'gen' thing.Without being needlessly long, essentially this sort of follows various 'robo-pones' as they go about their day on a sort of hostile planet, abandoned by their human creators, who are probably dead or whatever. That's kind of the basic premise. Sort of using this as a gateway into learning how to do this sort of writing. I'm not sure how to describe this in particular, i guess sci-fi would be a okay way to put it, but honestly I don't know any real technical jargon to really benefit from the setting.Also on the art side, I'm using this to sort of get used to Krita, which I'm feeling a little better on, still need to use smaller brush sizes though.
Any advice on how to draw with mouse?
>>38785315Try to use a program that allows you to do smooth strokes with an adjustable weight: it will fight your movements, and make lines much easier.
>>38785331>programLike for example?
>>38785369I use GIMP, but Krita should have it.
>>38785369Krita, Blender Greasepencil. I think Paint tool SAI has one too. But you can also get software for smooth lines like Lazy Nezumi or Silky Shark
>>38782418What’s with her eyes?
>>38786091They are like cameras I think. Aperture robot eyes or something.
This was very challenging to nail down. Something still seems off.
>>38786533- The show usually draws the mouth smaller and further up in this pose, or stretches the head significantly to make the mouth really large- its not clear whether AJ is rearing or bending backwards: if bending back the chest and neck should be super pronounced, if rearing she should be stretching ler forelegs forward for balanceHowever I think the picture is really good and I wouldn't change it.

Or rather the only one of the day, Besides, Holiday gets way more appointments than me."Holiday works here?">"She's the primary artificer of the clinic! Kind of a bigwig in our little outpost.""Artificer? I didn't know that's what you lab-rats call yourselves.">"And I was unaware we where compared to rodents!""Oh... I didn't know.">"All in good fun, I find the term to be rather fitting!">"Well, if your free as you say you are, why not go take a stroll around the outpost? Get some fresh-ish air?""I think I'd like that, did you want to join me?">"I thought you'd never ask! Lead the way my winged companion!">Maybe you can make new friends, the world is a rather big place after all.>And it all started with a visit to the clinic.>You felt happy, for the first time in a while.Hope this wraps this up, didn't expect to do this, but it was fun, may have screwed up some words, didn't do a check over or anything. Did a background (kind of) for this one
>>38786671Just realized i messed up the nose.
Red and black oc in suggestive pose.
A purple smart.
>>38785315Honestly my advice is to just invest in a cheap drawing tablet it's worth it
>>38785315If you're determined to draw with a mouse, be sure to turn off acceleration, it'll save you a ton of frustration with your lines.
Tried that thing where theres like a bunch of dedrafts but the the face is really off.
>>38788346Mentally pooped. will not stop me though.
>"Holiday says I'm to nice to the patients, I'd say she's not nice enough! We may be machines, but that doesn't mean we don't have feelings!"wanted to do a front facing portrait for Brie, though she looks like she's looking to the side more than anything, but I kind of like it, added a few little accessories to the front of the lab coat (Or at least an attempt at a lab coat) At first her hair wasn't going to cover her eye, but looking back at her other appearance, I thought it made some sense. I'm still not sure how robot-y I want these ponies to be, I think it would vary on the model and generation, Brie isn't built for combat so she probably would be rather lightweight in comparison to some others, Yarrow would be too, since she's one of the first versions of her particular model, more being added on and modified over time would make the next generations be heavier, though not to heavy, as they would be pegasi, it would be a different story for other models though. Honestly I probably should just start writing this stuff down, instead of coming up with it on the fly
Uhhh. Anon... I.. Im sorry.
Derpy! What does the scouter say about his power level?so apparently you can change the opacity of a layer, probably should have figured that out earlier, but it's certainly something I'll keep in mind for later use
artist training grounds starts in a bit less than 24 hrs, here's a newspost https://www.equestriadaily.com/2022/06/newbie-artist-training-grounds-starts.html
>>38773342>>38775832I love this idea and I'd be totally down to help set it up sorry for the delay in responding, I needed a bit of a break after /mlp/ con>>38779531wish I could have made it, post here if you decide to stream again sometime!>>38780669drawing streams would be fun, a good way to stay on track and get things done too>>38780732there are a few artists that post on tempo when they go live, usually it depends on what they're working on though. Last week or two had a few people streaming con prep well, probably just one, actually>>38776153>placewell that's easyI set up https://cytu be/r/BaleShack real quick for any potential future bale streams Beginner And Low Effort Streaming, Hosting, and Collaborative Knowledge-sharing>timethat's a bit trickier. Saturdays in general would probably not work, since we'd be competing with the rewatch stream. We could do something tomorrow night (Friday night), but a lot of people might be gamingI think we just need to accept that no time will ever be perfect and just start streaming whenever we have the chance, so who's up for trying it out tomorrow? Maybe around 8 pm EDT?>what do we doworking on our own projects at the same time and sharing progress would be fun, working together on the aggie could be even more fun and we could have an open jitsi link for anyone to jump in and join a vc, if anyone would be interested in that, but here are a few ideas of other things we could try too- artist workshop, where we call in an artist to teach us something, critique our work, help give us pointers, etc doing the panel thing got me in touch with a bunch of artists that may be interested in doing stuff like this- we could keep the room and just let different people stream through it on different times/days whenever they have something to work on they could stream. We could all take turns being the "streamer" and have the pressure on us that way- thread review - once the thread is at or near bump limit, we go through all the pictures that were posted, talk about them, give critique, etc mainly suggesting this because I think it might be easier and more fun than typing out a reply to every single image ^:)I might have had more ideas but I can't remember right now
>>387892638pm EDT tomorrow sounds good! I'll certainly come hang around in the cytube.
>>38789008Here’s what I imagine her saying:>”It’s six. Go get him!”>*Guys starts getting beaten into the dirt*>”Oh whoops, the scouter was upside. It’s actually nine thousand.”
>>38789263Yeah 8pm EDT tomorrow works for me
Front view legs are difficult
Poor filly didn't stand a chance against my inability to shade and draw the lower half body.
I tried a front view
>>38790702you did a good job, she's cute!
quick update on what I'm doing, gonna take advantage of those summer vibes! with the power of opacity, I now have shadows that don't look weird! though I probably didn't need to to that little bit at the top of the umbrella, I actually like how this came out, went through a few different prototypes of the umbrella, and ended up with this one, now, it is time to add the pones!
>>38787553I like the colors, very cute picture
Thought I'd try my hand at making a /bale/ OP image
>>38789263starting the stream in an hour not quite so sure what we'll be doing, but hey, we'll figure it out together>>38789341uh, today, not tomorrow. But if there's interest we can definitely do tomorrow too
>>38791585oh must have misinterpreted the message due to different time zones
>>38791585Got my interest.
>>38791585>>38789341 (me)I'll tune in in a bit, just busy with something rn

"Are you 100% sure that there won't be sharks?">"Fae, I'm fairly certain that the only thing you'll encounter here at best will be those tiny crabs, or maybe a seagull.""What if there's a REALLY aggressive seagull?">"I mean, sure I guess that can happen, but it's not like we packed lunch or anything...">"Wait a sec...""You forgot the lunchboxes, didn't you?">"Yeah...""So I WAS right!">"Oh hush, or I'll throw you in the water.""You better not!

Gave their cutiemarks some color, though I'm not sure if ill stick with these colors. Wish I remembered what the original story was going to be, but I didn't write it down and forgot, so here's something super improvised and dumb. Probably should have made Ari more annoyed looking. Also I kind of like Fae's mane like this, though this is more of a normal bun vs a top bun
>>38791894Aw nuts, didn't see the towel's various un-colored bits, white is hard to see vs transparency(or whatever the cubes are called?)
>>38792207I'd like to blast her processing, if you know what I mean. Heyo!
>>38791900Why not make a temporary layer under everything and fill it with a color that'd be easy to see?
>>38792478yeah, I probably should have thought about that, Ill keep it in mind.

Artist Training Grounds starting now. Post and submitter here: https://www.equestriadaily.com/2022/07/newbie-artist-training-grounds-xii-day-1.htmlFirst prompt: Draw a pony standing / Draw a pony stuck in place.I'll be finishing the 30 day challenge this year, hope to see you participate.
>>38792940A Pinkamena just standing there menacingly.
Of course I would lose my mojo the day of atg, hope I'm able to scrounge something up later, for now ill just post this crappy brainstorm page I did while sleep-deprived. Was getting around to how i want Holiday to look, settled for what is essentially a jaded Pinkie lookalike. The design will be fun to do once i do it in color, the mane will end up having funny little sprinkles, everything else on here is kind of unfortunate, except for Brie, just felt like drawing her again, need to settle how many curls her mane has though, end up drawing it different each time. Screwed around with the symbols on their lab coats, Brie's will probably be the same, but I'm not sure on what to do for Holiday, ill probably figure it out on the fly. The various limbs kind of suck, was trying to think about how varied they would look, ended up with sort of to much noise, at least I think so. I technically have another page like this, though it's not really a 'brainstorm' page and more of a 'assorted horse' page, but more sketchy, which would probably mess with the scan if i end up scanning it.I probably don't need to do these walls of text each time i post my dumb art, it's probably rather annoying, sorry about that
>>38794154Cute. She looks like she's about to murder me. Here's my attempt at Rarity.
>>38794300Very NICE! good work bro.
Well things would be a lot easier for Anon if I could draw him better.
I tried animation.
>>38794576now draw her head turning
Well, I guess I'm just having a rather slump day, can't draw a body for the life of me, here's Holiday in color, probably should have made her mane a more custard color (She kind of looks like a donut like this), instead of a light(pale?) pink, Still a fan of the sprinkle-y bits, I think its fun. Did Brie as well, her manes not right, I think I'm just overthinking it, and doing to much. Did their tails as well, kind of did that because I felt like there was a bit to much unused space. Drawing with a mouse certainly takes longer than using a pencil, even with the added bonus of being able to undo your mistakes, probably should try to hone my movements, so I don't end up with shaky lines. Maybe I need a bigger mousepad, or more room as well.
trying to think in 3DIs being mean in anon's nature?
Messing around with a different brush, ended up doing a couple anonfillies, and a lanky anonmare. Fun brush, not sure if ill use it for anything yet though. Speaking of brushes, anyone have any recommendations for brushes in Krita? I've found a few I like, though I probably should diversify.

ATG Day 2 prompt: Draw a moving pony / Draw a pony leaping to actionHere's a super cute mare from yesterday (gallery https://www.equestriadaily.com/2022/07/newbie-artist-training-grounds-xii-day-2.html)
the first attempt at a /bale/ stream was a lot of fun, I want to plan another for this weekwhen would work best for you? I would probably start it at 8pm EDT again, but I'm not sure what day to do it onalso, I kind of want to try the artist workshop idea, is there anything in particular you guys would want to learn, or any specific artist you'd want to learn from?
Well, that wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, Pinkie would have been the more obvious choice, but I did Twiggles at first, then drew Ponk later since I wanted something more bouncy, also here's a Jenga mare, kind of unrelated. Twilight's legs probably could be more 'in use' they look kind of static to me, though that could be that I didn't alternate right, ended up with both legs on one side being the ones moving, ill watch out for that in the future. I'm curious how literal one should take these prompts, the first one made me think stuck as in stuck in like a hedge or something, but I'm certain it meant more or less, sort of just standing there?
Some random poses to break out of 3/4ths side view and some different stylized faces
>>38796372Ponka doing her piggu dance.
>>38796481I have tomorrow off and a lot of other anons so that might work well, I'm also for doing it today.
>>38797612tomorrow I'll be out watching fireworks at the usual time, but tonight would work for meor I could just do it later in the night tomorrowor bothOR I could set up the cytube so someone else can stream on it then
>>38797368>sparklesHoly shit filly actually took a bath
>>38796481I'll probably be lurking most evenings, so probably if people start doing things I'll join in.
>>38797938me too probably, and if people are lurking I'll probably just start streamingSpeaking of which, stream again tonight at 8pm EDT
bonkat first I was going to do something related to applebucking but couldn't get it to look right, so now we have a bouncy ball bouncing off a mare's head, gonna make the face more pony, and give it color and a mane next, I could add more frames so the ball goes out of sight, but I'm not sure if its needed or not
>>38798349I love her.
>>38798349the bonking continuesgave her some color and mane, more pony-ish snoot as well, also a simple three dot cutiemark, was going to do a mouth, but i didn't feel like i made this big enough to really get it to look right. She only gets hit for like three frames, so she is sort of just being dramatic
>>38796372Dash sporting in clouds.
streaming right now at https://cytu be/r/BaleShackjoin in and draw!
I'd say unicorns would be pretty good at throwing spears, on account that they could probably just use magic to force it to go where they want it to, without worrying about outside factors.messed up the line for the face, ended up a bit weird
>>38798880actually 'pikemare' probably isn't the right term, but I couldn't think up the right terminology for a spear-throwing soldier, maybe javelineer (I think that's a word?) would have been better.
Look at her go!was going to do some alternating lights, but felt like that would have been a tad much
Lyra snailthis turned out prettyI like playing with light like this, I wanna do more of this kinda thing
ATG Day 3 prompt: Draw a pony filled with determination / Draw a pony ready to take on the world>>38798676That is awesome, dude. The pose really looks like she's twisting through the clouds. Dash has violet eyes though, and maybe a bit of the tail should show somewhere.Gallery: https://www.equestriadaily.com/2022/07/newbie-artist-training-grounds-xii-day-3.html Have a spinning filly.
This was going to be a unicorn casting a spell (I mean, it is, but I was going to do a whole head) But I got to engrossed in doing the spell effects that I didn't really register that I hadn't finished the unicorn until it was kind of too late, will certainly make sure to do the whole pone next time.On a different note, Unicorn magic has always been something I've found interesting, and I'm curious of what exactly you could to with it visually
i’m still getting a hang of drawing ponies i decided to practice by drawing a mare from the my little pony game loft app i thought she was cute
>>38799397Cute cornmare. She looks like she's about to tip backward, her head needs to be bigger.
>>38799418i knew something was off thank you anon>>38799296cute bloom i love her expressions
>>38799296Here's my little Applejack trying to look determined.
Local mare just happy to be here.Some fun with background/foreground, came out better than I expected, I especially like the buoy. Her names a reference (a rather obvious one) but other than that, nothing else overly interesting, was going to make her a pegasus at first, but I apparently couldn't get the wings to look right. Honestly all that names I came up with where all gold related, the second best was Gold/Golden Fleece, though that felt kind of dramatic, so I went with this one
>>38797739very nicely done!
Wanted to do that sword flip Sif does in dark souls, all that's left on this one is the mane and probably some touching up, though I'm too tired to do it right now. The motion lines are probably unnecessary. I feel like I could probably add a frame or two more, though I'm not sure where. Also I hope this isn't too fast.
cleared the canvas at https://aggie.io/baleBackups:https://u.smutty.horse/mhzznwptdah.psdhttps://u.smutty.horse/mhzznvsyqxr.png>inb4 muh smurfingaggie+cytube has been a really fun and productive combination, lots of learning and good times hereNext stream will be Tuesday (tomorrow) at 8pm EDT, it'll be a workshop with Rhorse. Come and learn how to make mares look pretty
>>38799138>>38798631>>38799364>>38799959https://u.smutty.horse/mhzzunmgdry.pdfNice to see a cultivated interest in creating new pony animation, if anyone is interested, here is The Animators Survival Kit book
>>38800964looks great, nice job!what's she magic-ing?
>>38800984No clue, I just wanted to practice a bunch of things
>>38799793>>38800422very cute lorias
>>38800964That is awesome. I love battle-ready Twilight.
>>38799959Added the mane and un-lined the ear, also added a extra frame at the end to sort of have a 'finishing point' instead of it just immediately looping, also erased a few of the motion line things, since I felt it was a little much. Was fun, certainly could be doing pones with swords more often, really activates my almonds.
>>38800908oh shit, that's like a whole ass book, from what I've gleaned, it seems like a pretty interesting read, thanks for sharing anon!
>>38800908oh shit, I've been meaning to find a copy of this for a while.Thanks! I wasn't the one posting animations, but I'll certainly look through it next time I do!
Shitty Tank Bump!Seriously don't know what I tried doing a tank, don't know the first thing about them, also the shading(lighting?) sucks, wasn't sure how to proceed with it, if I made this bigger i could have have better detail with the ponies, so they wouldn't have been so simple
Been trying to constrain my canvas to I use the whole thing instead of having all this dead air that I feel the need to fill up, ended up with a messy haired mare, with a funky horn (still need to work on those horns, so they look more normal, instead of exaggerating it to compensate) Always end up naming these horse even if their just for practice, though I guess it's nice if I like the look of one of them, I can just look back for that specific name so I have a reference, so I guess its not all that bad. This one is around 47 px high, which vs the 64x64 canvas, filled it up decently, but I probably could strive for a more full canvas, so I don't waste room. On another note, been getting easier to make these pixel pones, Less fighting to make them look right. I guess that means I'm getting more used to it I guess.
There are so many great ones I want to reply to that I'm getting overwhelmed by it. NTA who does, that guy has some dedication.Keep it up guys, if you're reading this, there's a high chance I like your work.
Any anons in the mood for a Jitsi call?

ATG Day 4 prompt: Draw a pony discovering something unexpected / Draw a pony hiding somethingLatest gallery: https://www.equestriadaily.com/2022/07/newbie-artist-training-grounds-xii-day-4.html
>This was certainly something you didn't expect.>After being recruited for a job of guarding a caravan of rather jolly unicorns, the last thing you'd expect was the sudden banquet that appeared before you.>Unicorns certainly have their ways, and they don't mess around with luxury.>You and Oak have been slicing fruit for their... blunch? lunchfest? >You didn't really catch what they said through their heavy accents, but Oak says its food, so you're happy about that.>Apparently your getting paid extra for the additional labor, (Though if anything you're just using this as excuse to practice your swordsmareship) Which is nice.>The only downside was that if you didn't hit Oak's rather increasingly fast fruit based projectiles, either you or some unfortunate unicorn will end up with a broken nose.>She said she used to buck haybales before she join her first company, and it shows.>Apparently she's having fun, since she hasn't said anything for awhile now, only humming some familiar tune.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_tCnxAjEWA>She's hummed it before, but you never could pin down where you've heard it before.>Though you guess your having fun as well, as you start to hum along, before you know it, you're chopping fruit like it's going out of style.>By the time you and Oak finish, the rest of the caravan had set up the rest of their food.>Though in all honesty, you're not sure if you can stand to be around any sort of fruit for a while, so you simply partake in whatever weird yellow stuff the unicorns offered.>You have no idea what a 'cheddar' is, but it certainly tastes good.This was fun to draw, wish i did Eidolon's body though, also it may have been weird, but I've been wanting to shill this song in a post for a while now, actually another song in this album reminds me of Oak a bit, so ill probably do something for that one as well, though this was just sort of a spur of the moment addition, also this is through Eidolon's eyes, thought it would be fun, since she's kind of unaware of a lot of customs from being rather sheltered
Hi /bale/, I've gotten in touch with a couple artists and planned out some drawing workshops with them for this week. Maybe this is a lot, but I'll see how people like it and adjust accordingly in the futureTuesday 8pm EDT: painting, color, and observation skill building with RhorseWednesday 8pm EDT: /bale/ thread #12 review. We go over each picture posted in the thread and talk about them this is what I'm going to try instead of the mass replying; those posts are just getting too long and hard for me to make. I hope I can make up for it with this, I'll post the recording afterward so nobody has to miss their (You)sThursday 8pm EDT: beginner steps for drawing pony with LegendOfLinkSunday 8pm EDT: drawing ponies in shorthand with OJ/ahappypichufind them at the usual place, https://cytu be/r/BaleShack>>38802683I totally agree, I really love all the art that's posted here, and it's fun recognizing artists and regulars and watching them improve so much so quickly join us on Wednesday and hopefully we can give these posts the love that they deserve
>>38803007 I apparently have a quarrel with your/you're since I always end up fucking them up, I really need to check through these more closely before posting, saw a few other errors as well

If you have questions or want the feedback you would have gotten live, post it and mention it here in the thread and I'll make sure the artist sees itUnfortunately work and >sleep keep me from being able to host at other times, but there are definitely artists in your respective time zones that we could talk into doing these at a time that works better for you, we would just need someone else willing to host, or to make sure the artist is comfortable doing it themselves
>>38799296Didn't have time to finish it yesterday. So finished it today.
She walks! Wish I made the hair move as well, but I was dumb and didn't stick it on another layer. Turned out better than expected, still need to make the head move along with it as well, overall walking attempt 1 was a success! This is only 6 frames, not sure if you can make a smooth walk cycle with less, most of the references I saw had six minimum, so I guess that's kind of the baseline.
>>38804665I think ill end up having to exaggerate the movements next time, seems a bit stiff, at least in the hindleg department, the head and neck area will have to move along as well, from what I've seen it seems to be a sort of bobbing? I want to say its a sort of circular motion, but I'm not entirely sure, also I should make the back bit by the head move a little as well, most likely along with the head.
>>38802842Do you see the perpetrator? Yeah he's right here. Gonna be honest I traced the gnome.
>>38802842FUCK shadingNo I'm not going to finish the background, it's 4AM, and this took me 4 hours. Considering, that I've never used a brush before this, For the first time in months I'm actually happy about my art came out.
>>38804864KekLovely!Good job anon!
>>38804332I love the dynamic pose. In case you're submitting to eqd, there are makeup days for late submissions after days 10, 20, 30. >>38804750Adorable. It just feels like the filly is missing a tail.>>38804864It doesn't look too bad, but what were you planning to fill that background with originally?
>>38804679body moves up and down on leg walk cycle, if you look at the refference, you will notice in the passing positions and extremesalso, regarding the presented frames they do not reflect the main keyframes of a walk cycle
>>38803020first workshop starts in 30 minutes!be there and paint mare!https://cytu be/r/BaleShack
>>38802842I fuck up the anatomy
Wanted to attempt some hair movement, She is supposed to be sitting on top of a flashing sign of some sort, was going to have her hooves sort of stick out a bit but I didn't really know if I should have or not. The star thing has a purpose, but I'm honestly not sure what I was going for now, I probably should have made it smaller so it felt more in the background. Also the sword/cleaver didn't really need to flash as well, but I guess I felt it sort of made sense in the moment. Probably should have added a silver line in her tail as well. Was overall going for a sort of vague neon aesthetic, though i may have overdid it (Or maybe didn't lean into more) I also could have made her ears move, didn't think about that until now.
What pixel art can I make with these blocks?
Am I an artist now?
>>38804864Here's my go at it. You're on the right track, anon. Just need to work on her a little more Maybe it'd be easier to define the shapes with a plain hard round brush before worrying about textured brushes.
>>38806391>implying i didntlmao, Thanks for the drawing though.
ATG Day 5 prompt: Draw a pony meeting a long-lost friend / Draw ponies who are inseparable from each otherYesterday's gallery: https://www.equestriadaily.com/2022/07/newbie-artist-training-grounds-xii-day-5.htmlHere is a very cute Rainbow Dash with a rainbow flower.
