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.

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…

OK.

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…

irondreams 985

>>982
Indeed.

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.

>>985
The best works don't emulate the show exactly, yet still adhere to some of the basic principles.
>Pic related.

irondreams 988

>>986

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.

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

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.
