DesertPoni's Art Thread PART II DesertPoni !GummyfZBao 2173[Last 50 Posts]

Continued from >>76
I reached autosage, so I figured it's time to make a new thread.
#Taking Commisions
#Art Bloggan
#Maybe taking requests

What I do:
-Sprite Art
-Hand drawn Art (Traditional or Digital w. Tablet)
-Development/Graphic Design
-Writing (I do not do fan fiction).

>I only use vectors if I use them for line art.

Tools I use:
-Graphics Gale

Currently I am developing a sidescroller in HTML5 as a personal project. My requests may be closed until I get decent headway. I updated some in the previous thread, but I'll move some of those here for viewing.
I sometimes have the project in my dropbox for public viewing of my progress. If you want to see how it's going, just ask.

This is an animation sequence I am working on right now.

This is what I have working so far.
You can move around, but there are no animations. The walkable area and stops at the background, and the character registers the background as a collision and doesn't go up onto it.
The level itself is pretty large, but it's filled with nothing at the moment besides text blurbs.

I got a 4 direction system working, with animations.

Current build update:
-Added shadows.
-Made shadows into collision detection
-Created 1st NPC
-Made it so player's layer is above NPC when he runs beneath the NPC.
-Made it so the player's layer is below NPC when he runs over the NPC.
-NPC faces player always.

DesertPoni !GummyfZBao 2197

Issues I'm running into now:
-When I add a 2nd NPC, it acts under the same object as the other on the screen, and their AI conflicts. They don't follow the player properly or layer eachother properly, and glitch out basically.

Need to find a way to run both NPCs independently under the same object type, so they do the same thing but don't conflict with eachother..

DesertPoni !GummyfZBao 2200

DesertPoni !GummyfZBao 2245

Success! I have gotten past my issue!

DesertPoni !GummyfZBao 2247

The current build is now up.
I have introduced text boxes into the game as an experiment with key commands.
Currently, if you walk up to the NPC on the right of the starting position, and press A, the player will "talk" to the NPC.

DesertPoni !GummyfZBao 2257

The text box now is fully functional.
I've made it so that S closes the box, but holding A while the NPC is talking causes the text to scroll faster. I have also included an indicator letting the player know the NPC is either finished talking or has more to say.

Aaaaand everything came to a halt because my semester is wrapping up – The work load doubled on me at the same time. Life is stressful, and TF2, Wakfu, and Planetside 1 are my zen gardens at the moment that keep me sane.

Sorry about that.
I'll be finishing up the commissions after finals, which should be in a week.

Have a scrunchy fayc.

#accepting commissions

I'm looking to be put to work. I'm an artist, and I draw just about anything. I recently spent $630 on a touchscreen that I really want to kick into high gear and make some people happy with. The best way I know how to do that is by posing to pose poni.

So, want something drawn?

My style varies, I can do just about anything given enough time, and I love to work one-on-one with my customers for the best results.

I often post my commission progress in my threads for review, or I can find a way to do so privately at your own discretion.
Sketch: $1
Lineart: $3
Colored Lineart: $7
Shaded Colored Lineart: $10

Portrait(Neck up face)
Colored: $5
Shaded $8

One character on simple color background: $20
Additional Characters +$10
One character on complex background: $30
Additional Characters +$10

Please leave contact information in the thread with a quick summary of what you'd like drawn. I will contact you ASAP. Thank you!

The picture I'm thinking of is Cadance reading a bedtime story to a little filly version of Twilight, who's tucked into bed and listening intently.

I would like it to be somewhat polished, so, colored lineart, I think.

Since it's more than just a posed pony, I'd pay more than seven dollars. Ten?

To kill you of course, nah I kid. I like knowing where the people split up to. I actually found you by chance this time. I drop by from time to time to check out the rp threads and see if any thing interests me.

Personally with your skill set I figured you would have moved on to the tumblr part of mlp by now.


Ooh. Seeing the process of cleaning up your lines and whatnot is pretty cool.

Like, seeing this kind of thing is sorta mind-blowing for someone who doesn't art.

If that's the case I'm surprised you haven't seen me sooner. I've been a founding member here due to Anonthony and many of the founding moderatorsbeing a close friend of mine.
Then again, If /rp/ is all you visit, that might explain it. I stopped going to /rp/ last year, and the campaign we had died off and now might be novelized into a webcomic or something. I'm more of a /site/, /oat/, /anon/, /pony/, and /art/ poster.

That's half the reason I do it! Some people have told me they've learned from it – I guess it's kind of like a livestream slideshow.

Tumblr is bleh. Too much work and no real payoff, last time I attempted it at least. I'd rather work on my independent non-pony related projects and keep doing this on the side.

I've got the full resolution version (which is poster sized if you wanted to print it out) ready for you after I receive the second half of the payment!

I'm trying to force this meme now. Wish me luck.


Good luck XD


That's what I call art. I don't care for the quotation though.

Looks better sketched imo

In 48 hours, 40 of these uploaded to ponibooru.



I'm legitimately shocked at how viral that went.


That's never happened before.

My entry into the Zelda Fanart Challenge.
I doubt I'll get top 50 at all, but this was a lot of fun.
The most memorable scene, for me, when it came to The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, was the final challenge Link encounters in The Tower of the Gods, in which he faces off against Gohdan.
Something about that fight always stuck with me as a child. Having grown up, it's the first thing I always think of whenever the game Wind Waker comes to mind. So of course, I had to paint it. I spent many days and nights, carefully going over the designs. From what started out as something very small became one of the biggest pieces I've ever actually finished, and I actually feel like it really captures my love for this game's story, and my passion to create art.

I took the Hylian text from the game's Gamecube disc, which I believe is supposed to translate into the game's japanese title "The Legend of Zelda: Baton of Wind", and tried to create a scene mixing the styles and colors of the actual game itself, and the designs and patterns of the murals shown throughout the ancient ruins across The Great Sea.

Thanks for inspiring me to create this, Nintendo!

Not bad kid, not bad.

In case you were wondering, here's the story that I used the "bedtime stories" image for.


It's been well received, though I'm still struggling with making it into exactly what I want it to be.


I linked it in the description, so hopefully that will direct the masses your way

I apologize for the hiatus.
I've been extremely busy.

I'm getting back into the groove of things with some pixel art. Unfortunately my tablet needs to have some repairs done on it so that'll have to wait a bit.

Hey, Desert. Do you still do sprite work? And if so, how much do you charge? Just curious.
