I'll do a review.

Hello! I'm the Coco Critic! I comment on it so you don't have to. Today, I'll be doing a review of "Vinyl n' DJ Rotated" by Loaf.
I'll be looking at the Lineart, Details, Dynamics and Other of this image.

Looking at the lines, I can see a lot of good lining going on. The lines, in general, look really good and really well done. This being said, zooming in highlights these imperfections as if each line was part of a sketch. It loses some quality at this level but honestly not too much. I give this a 4/5, really good but needs just a little bit more to be perfect.

This is where the image shines. Zoomed in or not, you've got to admire how this has been done. There's a lot of detail going on and a lot of effort has clearly been shown. I want to give this a perfect mark…
However… Vinyl's horn and ear are a little small. I'm going to give this 3/5 for this. This is only so low because there are so many good little details on the dashboard and so forth that I cringe at the lack of a logo on the T-Shirt and how Vinyl's mane looks too… Scattered.

Rule of Thirds, did you say? This image has got it in abundance. The characters are right at the focal points with superb lines of action, the whole image has obvious attention paid to the DJ/Music element of it. There's obviously an attempt to bring attention to the foreground and this has been done masterfully. I'll give this 4.5/5. Not perfect but getting there.

Many, many, many expression faces Red Star 1074[View]

After being egged on (not really) by other posters I've decided to do a ponified version of every expression in this picture as transparent .pngs.

I'll update with each one and give a .zip at the end.

Here we go!

There's a guy called countschlick on deviantart who's done guides for all the Mane 6 that are very good.
Here's his guide for Rainbow Dash. You could use it for Lyra.
Linking because file size.

It's a good idea to experiment with the spacers before cutting. You could skip second spacer on her bangs. It will make it look less unkempt.
Lyras hair also curls up a bit in the back, you could check the Rarity guide, which goes into curling in depth. You'd have the curl start a bit closer to the head for Lyra and cut cut off most of the curl so the hair doesn't make a full circle.

The horn is going to be a pain in the ass of course. You'll just have to deal with it.

Christmas Write-off 1501[View]


Event overview: http://writeoff.rogerdodger.me/event/12

Hello, denizen's of /art/. Every few months, we over at /fic/ do a collaboration competition with /art/. Seeing as we've (mostly) moved into MLPchan now, I figure you guys would be interested.

The competition is relatively simple: prompt → art → fic. First, everyone decides on a worded prompt to act as the event's theme. Artists draw pictures from the worded prompt, and then writers write stories to the pictures.

The art round starts Sun, 09 Dec 2012 06:00 UTC and lasts for 5 days, ending Fri, 14 Dec 2012 06:00 UTC. For those too lazy to do the conversion, if you make an account on the site (with the correct timezone settings), all the times will display in your local timezone.

Worded prompt suggestions start Sun, 09 Dec 2012 04:00 UTC, last an hour, and are followed by a one hour voting round.

But why should you participate? Well for one, there's a whole bunch of writers that are going to write stories to the submitted artworks. Having someone write a story inspired (even if just a little) by your work is pretty awesome.

But wait, there's more! The winner will be awarded a copy of IDW's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comic (http://www.idwpublishing.com/news/article/2349/), courtesy of Anonthony.

Prompt submissions start in 24 hours.


The prompt is My First New Year's Alone. Submissions close in about 5 days.

Good luck!

More of an constructive critique for my work in this thread. FPP 818[View]

Understand I have very dodgy Internet, not gonna be here for long, couldn't directly receive the image, so I had to screenshot it, which is over to the left. My main concern is perspective or the button string's color, since come people says it looks like X for dead. I temporarily have the resources to draw more, but I definitely need to learn to draw better so I can let go when it's time to let go.

Perspective for this photo is like, is it 3/4th or is part of it actually in a shifted position, which ruins the streamlining, and makes it look like a Picasso painting.

Btw, is my drawing good? Learning to draw more than just heads.

Desert's Commission Post. ₯○ⁿꜟ!DahGayseXY 76[View][Last 50 Posts]

#Accepting Commission

The stand has been opened for commissions!
Want something drawn? I'll draw it.
I am open to drawing any subject matter.
Adult themes may tend to cost more than regular pieces.

I am very open to drawing any and all subject matters, including those whose views and interests do not reflect my own. If you are interested in me producing some work, please shoot me a message via the note system.

I only post works on this website if you give me permission after final payment is received, and you have given me permission to post it. I respect my customer's purchases.

I request that at least 50% of the total price be given at the time of starting the commission, and the remaining 50% be given upon time of completion. You will not receive the final product until payment is received via paypal and transferred accordingly to my bank account, which may take 3 to 4 days after sending payment. I charge for last minute changes, such as telling me to redraw/change something near the end of the commission an additional $10.00 per change. If you are not clear about something, and do not bring it to my attention soon enough after I present to you a thumbnail, you will be charged if I am told to fix it later on after further progress is made. If I am told promptly, there will be no additional charge.
If you are unable to pay the remaining balance, I do not do refunds if I have made what I consider significant progress. I will keep what I have worked on until you finish paying the remaining balance. If you do not pay the remaining balance, I will claim or destroy the product. I will not return your money.
If I have not made what I consider significant progress, only then in this situation I will return your payment.

You have to get it perfect. You really can't deviate from proper form or proportions unless you're creating something ridiculously stylized.

Desert Bus has begun and a live auction for a Rainbow Dash plushie, as well as some other assorted items as soon as the price gets high.

If you want in, go to the site, join the chat as well as get a free to sign up donor account and bid away when it starts.
This is a one of a kind super awesome plush and if you wanna win, you gotta out bid the crazy bidders.

It's all for charity, so when it gets to the $1000+ ranges, realize it's for the children.

For all you Ubuntu/Debian users out there
wget http://media.steampowered.com/client/installer/steam.deb
sudo dpkg -i steam.deb

if some packages are required but aren't already installed, type:

sudo apt-get -f install
sudo dpkg -i /home/*Your_username*/steam.deb

When you execute the application you'll of course be told to log in and verify your account. After that, you'll see your account has not been authorized and you can therefore not use Steam.
To get around this little "check" of Valve's, just type steam:// in the url-bar of your browser and log in.
Enjoy using Steam
