Hello /art/!

I just re-started working on my " art ". I would like to improve my drawings but tumblr and dA is simply puts too much pressure on me.

I would like to ask if I can post my " art " here to get some critique and feedback?

Be afraid I am really a beginner and only have pencils to work with.

Have a nice day!

Good, just try to make your snout shape and Ear shape more size and shape-regulated.

And the handwriting…perfect.

Thank you.

First, I'd recommend you scan your works in. Though I think I know why you don't.
It's usually either a lack of a scanner or the inability to pick things up…

You mentioned you only have a pencil? May I try and urge you to reline things with a pen, if you can?
Some of the lines could be refined, though it doesn't wildly warrant it. If you reline it in pen then you usually make it a lot clearer on the page and fix any minor goofs we all do from time to time.
>I work with a Tablet, it took me two more refinements (Lineart over it) to work with it.

In my class-doodles, I found my best images were sketched in Pencil, Lined in Pen and the the pencil removed…
>Then I shaded with the pencil…

Your anatomy is great; it's quite amazing. And you're taking on some brilliant poses and positions. I especially like the way you did Pinkie's muzzle, it's a cute style choice.

It didn't come out perfectly, tried a new method for the table but…

I have a scanner where I live. I'll scan my drawings in the future.
Using a pen to high light the outlines? That is a good idea I'll try it.

Thanks I only drew a handful of ponies so far.

Drawn humans/anything else?

Nothing else that looks good.
A few still lives in my life drawing course I started to attend two weeks ago.

"Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence = is the key to unlocking our potential." ~ Winston Churchill.

It doesn't matter how skilled you are, though I can see some natural talent in you already. If you keep trying then you're bound to go Beyond the Garden.

Don't ever give up.

>Probably the best thing I've done…

Now I am working on a new pic.
I had a few weeks of hiatus thanks to spooky emotional reasons, and I would like to apply what I have learned and thought up.

I'll also try to avoid copying the show's style. It simply looks awkward on paper and doesn't make too much sense in 3d.

The best works don't emulate the show exactly, yet still adhere to some of the basic principles.
>Pic related.

irondreams 988


Yes. I'll keep the basics in mind.

I said I'll make something neat.
I'm sorry, I couldn't make the great leap I wanted to.

So while being devastated I have to reconsider my art operations.

Mission failed.

You don't have to annotate them, even the thumbnails were obvious who they were.

irondreams 1060

I just need my sarcasm to keep me going in Art at the moment.

No way!

That's a good pony, and you're showing clear improvement.
