The Icrontic Pony Drawthread

FitzkriegFitzkrieg British Columbia
edited Dec 2011 in Bronies
All right, here's the deal.

We may have a thread for pictures of ponies already, but I think it's high time we expanded our horizons a bit. I started this thread to give any established or budding artists among us a place to drop our pony-related work, as well as to drum up interest in drawing on our beloved little subforum.

Everyone is invited to participate; traditional and digital artists alike. Even if you think you can't draw, there's only one way to get better. Practice, practice, practice. Now get creative, folks; I don't want to be the only one posting stuff.

If you have a deviantART or whatever, post it up, and I'll add it to the list.

    As I mentioned in the stream a while back either Professor Fate or Professor Layton!

    Hmm..

    Something I've always tried to get drawfriends in /co/ to make is Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy flying with Hiccup and Astrid from HTTYD riding them. Or fighting them. Both would be hilarious and awesome.

    Right, I do remember you mentioning that. I'll give it a shot sometime.

    I hate to turn down requests, especially from my friends; but I wouldn't be able to do that request justice.
    I am straight awful at humans, you see.

    That said, you could always try on Ponychan's /art/ board.

    I could try to Gimp everything together, quite good at image manipulation (Or at least I've gotten better of late)

    Art is art. Do it, and post it up!

    That is freaking great! Seriously I saw that and my jaw fell open, you even got the eyebrow raise!

    --------------------------------------------------

    Also, not really a drawing but I did make it.

    Was playing Batman Arkham City today and I saw Twoface said to myself 'Wow I should do a Twoface thing with Pinkie and Rainbow Dash.'

    Well here you go (Put this together in a few minutes, I know the noses/mouths are off but the character designs are different enough that an exact match would be impossible this is the closest I could do considering that I couldn't draw if my life depended on it)

    That's a cool idea!
    It turned out well, anyway.

    In reference to last nights synchtube :D

    Lol, yeah sorry about that Fitz.

    They said not to try it but the booze said it was the greatest idea ever...so yeah.

    Also the new forum software scares me...

    And I just now find this thread, dang I'm a horrid lurker. Then again it was started when I was inactive. Anyway I'll see what i can do here.

    @ The Phyraxian, Sweet lord that is amazing!
    @Bladephoenix I smile every time I see that face.
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    @Ilriyas has a secret waifu? TRIXIE OVER DASH?
  • Blasphemous, I know.
  • IlriyasIlriyas Magician, Sunbro, Grossly Incandescent Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    @UPSLynx it's not what it looks like I swear!

    Blade and I were having a discussion at school the other day and I said 'Trixie is best not main pony' then...well this happened.

    And then Ilriyas said: Let it be rotated! image

    Also lol, I knew you said you were going to draw it but I didn't know you'd put in this much effort for a troll drawing xD.

    Finally got my drawing ability to a level I'm happy with, I should be uploading a few of my own within the week.

    Thanks for the flip, now Lynx can clop properly. Also I still think its a bit retarded looking. xD Still sexy.
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    ..... you guys are ridiculous.

    For what it's worth - very well drawn. But:



    This is all Cola's fault.
  • IlriyasIlriyas Magician, Sunbro, Grossly Incandescent Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    Hey man, I don't decide what gets drawn, hell I was going to do a Johnny Bravo pony. What dude draws is what dude draws.
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    heh, no worries. I'm laughing. It's just funny because this isn't the first time I've been trolled with ponies.

    That was all before I watched and liked the show.

    Ilriyas and Lynx down. Who's next?
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    Cola is overdue.

    Cola + Diamond Tiara.
  • More like Cola x Spike in a Twilight costume. That'll teach him.

    ...fuck my stuff looks like shit compared to yours mate, course I'm just happy I could get it done...maybe if I took more than half an hour...

    ah well here we go.

    Move aside Big Macintosh, there's a new stallion in Ponyville and his name is.

    JOHNNY BRAVO

    After hearing the convo in TF2, I thought this would be much worse. Still a bad idea, but nothing near what my curiosity was expecting. Continuing ignorance of ponies in 3 ... 2 ... 1

    So I've decided to never touch digital art until I can get my hands on a tablet. I've been working with Paint Tool SAI for the better part of an hour now the interface is nice and intuitive (And I love having separate layers so that I don't need to worry about ugly erase lines) but without a pencil or pen in my hand I just cant get the lines to work the way I want them to. A mouse just doesn't offer enough control.

    (My whole reason for trying SAI was so that I could access a colour palette and create a nice drawing in something other than monochrome.)
  • RahnalH102RahnalH102 the Green Devout New Mexico Icrontian
    really you can't do digital art without a tablet of some sort, it helps so much.
  • IlriyasIlriyas Magician, Sunbro, Grossly Incandescent Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    Yeah, after 2 hours of not being able to do more than sketch lines (No matter how low I put my mouse's dpi or how much pressure I applied I couldn't get it to draw lines that didn't fly across the page or go off on weird angles) I realized that the reason all the youtube videos (and the Deviantart artists) say to use a tablet is specifically because unless you want to pour 4 extra hours into doing it with a mouse (The outcome I'd be willing to bet would still be worse) then its the best thing. On that note any tablets you'd recommend for digital art?

    Wacom seems to be the main supplier. I would say grab one that has an interactive area that you would feel good drawing with. The one I have has a drawing area of 4inx6in. My hand is bigger then this so it is kinda meh, but it's not a deal breaker. Specially since the area can be adjusted screen wise. Say I'm at the top right corner of the drawing area, the pointer should be at the top right of the screen or the boundary I set on the screen.
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    Get a Wacom Bamboo. It'll do everything you need. And definitely do not go for the smallest size. You'll feel encumbered.
