Cocoa's Art Critique and Feeback Thread 2205[View]

#Giving Critique

Hey /art/, my name is Coco. Call me Cocoa, Coco or any name you feel like… I'm here to give Critique and Feedback here.

My name is Coco, some people call me Kyoko. You may just like to remember the Lady Luck tripcode I have.
I'm an artist of sorts. I'm not that good, I have to admit, but I do have an idea of what I'm on about when I talk art. I don't have a gallery because I don't think it's worthwhile.

What am I here to do? Give feedback on art. Submit something you think is good enough for reviewing and I shall give it a gander and give some feedback.

All feedback I give is largely based off opinions! I may have a different opinion to you on how the art piece came out. If you think I'm too hard or too lenient on you or somepony else, feel free to comment. I ask only that you remain civil.

That out of the way, I'll give you some guidelines:

I'd like for you to choose the length of my feedback. Short, medium or long.
For short pieces, you don't really get much out of it… Maybe just a suggestion for the future and my opinion of it.

Hmm… Human Alicorn Twilight.

The first thing I find that works well is the wings. The size and detail on them catches my eye and really seems to highlight what the image is about. I'm quite impressed by how much effort has been put into them. Full of the imperfections that makes the image look good.
The next part is a little odd for me to phrase, so forgive me for this. I kinda find fault with the whole 'human' side of things. I love Angels, I love humanised and I love beauty. The problem with this image seems to be a few minor human related things. The hands, the feet, the complexion, the angle of the face… Minor things that all come from one basic concept.
The last thing I need to address is how dynamic it is. There's really an attempt at creating a sense of wonder and power from this. An obvious line of action has been used and the dress is flowing beautifully… It's truly a good image.

This isn't my favourite image from you, Red, though I have to confess that it is a pretty little sight.

It's due to detail and everything. I don't want to get overwhelmed by requests and I need a tad bit of detail to get anything done.

If it's a sketch, the most I could give is a comment on how it looks.
If it's a simple/lacking background drawing, the most I can give is a medium.
And if it's an epic like this picture… I can give any feedback levels.

File: 1360703351134.png (181.79 KB, 1000x1000, Wings Tutorial.png)

I can kinda give help on that!

Wings are divided into three parts. Like an arm. There is a connection to the body (like the shoulder) a connection in the middle (like an elbow) and a end part.

This image demonstrates it better than I can probably explain it. I'm not too good with wings but I have given them tries…
It's seemingly largely a case of having this proforma (the top line) to generate the shape and the lower parts in two stages (one smaller than the other).

This is an art critique thread. I'm here to help where and if I can… If somepony else can give a few wing pointers, it would be brilliant.

Message from the DA group! Eponymous the Magnificent~!TILDE0My9M 598[View]

Hello mlpchan /art/! You can call me Epony~, and I'm a co-founder on PAD's DA group. "EponymouslyEponymous" there since Eponymous and Epony were taken I believe.

As you all well know, or at least I'd assume you can all find out easily enough, PAD's "pony after dark" art group on deviantart is, and has now been for a bit, fully open to you guys to come in and join us and share your art with the people of PAD, your fellow /art/ists, and the whole of this site really. (Was there too many commas in that long sentence? Oh well, I do that, heh… see) Here's a link if you are curious and happen to not have heard about it - http://pony-after-dark.deviantart.com/

Anyways, I'm making this OP post to let you guys know that if you want to share art in "pony after dark", please leave us a comment explaining how you found us in your invitation request. That way we can avoid the guys that just search pony groups on DA and join every single one they can, or whatever… yes, we get those. And it's not like we're picky, but we just want to know who our group members are and to keep the group somewhat tighter and more intimate… (stop thinking like that~). Basically, we have only a few Co-Founders and the group was originally designed just for close friends of PAD to share stuff. But now we have an awesome new group of people coming in that we're happy to welcome in! We just don't know all you guys necessarily, but we'd love to get to know you.

So, again, please leave an comment when you ask for an invitation. Say something like, "Hi my name is -name-, and I found you guys through mlpchan's art group"! And if you don't have art to contribute, following requires no invitation… or maybe you think you'll be inspired to try some art of your own and will want an invitation anyways. Let us know. We can only glean so much from reading your DA page.

So… see you guys around and I I'd love to see more and various art.

Also, if there's any mods in the area, a sticky would be appreciated, but if you don't find that necessary, that's fine too. Thanks!

I've been thinking about joining for a while now but I've been wondering a couple of things:

>is mature art ok? Your name suggests it but I just wanted to be sure

>is there some sort of groupchat system or do you guys have a steam group or something?
>Is it purely show ponies or are variations such as anthro, humanized, OCs, etc. allowed?


File: 1351585258243.png (221.23 KB, 418x429, pinkie lemme break the ice her…)


Oh hey… sorry I'm just now seeing this but I've been busy and I don't honestly expect to see much here usually, heh.


>is mature art ok? Your name suggests it but I just wanted to be sure

Our name has really nothing to do with Equestria After Dark. In fact, I myself knew of PAD long before the other thing. Not sure why that name was picked specifically, but a safe bet would be because it was the chat thread where people from /pony/ came to hang out in the evening after a long day of silly "argumenting" and possibly because of the ironic association with "EAD".

That all said, our name does not imply an interest in porn, and I'm sorry it could seem that way. Crazy I hadn't thought that this might happen and that it hasn't happened sooner really. We haven't had anyone try and post porn in our DA group, but I believe we want to keep it "SFW" in accordance with the general site rules of mlpchan, Ponychan, and whatever DA's regulations are on this. Basically, anything that's posted there should be able to be posted in any of the channels here outside of that special one Thony set aside for such things as porn. We of course don't care if you art your own porn images, and are free to join us and share your "lighter fare"… we probably just wont be interested in accepting "blantant porn"/NSFW images as a general rule.

>is there some sort of groupchat system or do you guys have a steam group or something?

We do have a steam group that many PAD members use, but it's not something that's really attached to the DA directly. The common thing that ties us together is "PAD" which can be found on this site every night on the /pony/ board. However, Thony is an old friend of the group and it was agreed that PAD's DA group would be inviting to his site's /art/ board. So anyone from here is welcome to join without having ever visited PAD if they choose. I guess the mentality is that friends of PAD are welcome there and everyone here is a friend of Anonthony at the very least. We would love to encourage people to come visit PAD though of course. It should be mentioned though that outside of PAD and this board, we try to keep things a little "exclusive" so that our small number of group admins can handle it

/art/-/oat/ weekly drawing: Anonymous 2279[View]


We're going to have an activity for /art/ and artists, related to the above-linked thread.

The short-version:
An /oat/ thread will be made. The users will pick characters, scenes and actions they'd like to see artists draw Then a character, scene and action is chosen from those requested. The selections are then listed here, for arists to draw. Artists will then have 24 hours to do s quickdraw of the selected piece, posting them here.

When the 24 hours is up, a winner will be chosen. That winner will have their art piece (as well as their dA and/or/ tumblr or other gallery link) posted in the opening of a stickied thread on the site. Artists get a good practice activity and a chance at exposure and views for their art, and others get a chance to participate in picking what's drawn - everyone wins!

Stay tuned to this thread and the one linked above - when the scene is set, we'll post it here!

I'm Bashfluff, and I'm looking to make you guys some good bead sprites on the cheap! I need the money and the practice for beading and drawing, so don't be shy!

Bead sprites are crafts made out of fuse beads. They're made using sprites as a base, because sprites are drawn pixel by pixel. They transition well to a format that is basically the same, but with beads. I'll post an example. They're made on interlocking boards that are 28x28 beads long. Designs are laid out on the boards, taped, taken off, and fused together with an iron.

I make bead sprites mostly out of video game sprites and whatever pony sprites I can find, but I've found a potential partner who perhaps could draw our own stuff or "convert" images into sprites. For now, though, I'll stick with using whatever sprites I can find.


$5 = 1 board. If you want a cutie mark or something, this would be the board for you.

$8 = 2 boards. Spike might fit onto this setup.

$11 = 3 boards. I don't know what fits onto three boards. The letter L or something really tall and thin, basically.

$14 = 4 boards. These are what your main ponies will mostly fit on!

VA's want some work? 3178[View]

Hello everypony!

Are you a voice actor or singer? Good! Because today is YOUR lucky day!

We are looking for artists like you to take the reins of our fandom's greatest writers, and to bring life, color, personality and feeling to the black and white text of our fandom.

Our team at PEP (Project Equestria Productions) would like to give YOU the chance to strut your stuff and show off your skills. We want old and new VAs alike. If you are a new up and coming VA, give this a try, and don’t be intimidated; we judge only on your skill and passion as a VA, not your past experience—though we would like to know what you have done in the past.

Here’s what we are looking for this time around:
- Voice actors, both male and female, there are a wide variety of roles to fill, but heres what we need specifically:
- 1 Rainbow Dash VA
- 1 Gilda VA
- 1 British VA
- 1 “Average Joe” VA
- 1 Billy Mays impersonator

I'm up for helping with this but, it would help if you gave us a little bit of script so you could judge any and all entries against each other equally. For example, maybe three sentences for the voice you are looking for.

When you say British do you mean Welsh Accent, Cockney, Upper Class 'we', or pip pip cheery o' stereotype?

The billy Mays could easily be referenced, but what lines are you looking for in particular?

"Pony Mays here with this special offer, -but wait there's more!" Like that or…?

Also it may help to give us a link to the 'fanfiction' in question you are thinking about to see if we could throw in an audition for parts we think we could fill as opposed to just throwing everything we have at you.

/art/-/rp/ holiday contest! !!Applejack 1752[View][Last 50 Posts]

Welcome to a special holiday contest for all artists, roleplayers and anyone who has an OC!

Here's how it'll work: between now and January 1, RPers and OCs may post their characters in this thread (pics or descriptions or both). Anytime between then and January 3, artists may draw art pieces of any of the posted characters (multiples, if they want to submit multiple entries.) We'll try to get art pieces for as many of the posted characters as we can.

After January 3, we'll pick 3 winners - not necessarily the most amazing images, but the ones that really put great effort and captured the characters - and each of the winners will receive any Steam game(s) of their choice of $15 (any game, combination of games or items.) This should coincide nicely with the Steam holiday event as well, not to mention the great growth of the /rp/ community we've been so happy to see. Artists will get a nice contest and chance to win prizes, and roleplayers will get a chance to get free art of their characters!

So let's get going - feel free to start posting your characters and letting everyone who might be interested know. =D
