    Actually I've got something I've been working on, if I can find the time to finish it I'll put it up. (Kill two birds with one stone)

    ...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.

    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

    That IS NOT what that is. Thanks for turning it into something weird. :shake:
  • Happy Valentines Day everyone! =D

    looks like I'll have to contribute something, now that it's gotten weird and all...
  • Alright, I've been unable to get Cola's second version anywhere near my minimum acceptance level, need something else to draw to clear my tard-ness right now. Somebody give me a suggestion =D
  • IlriyasIlriyas The Syrupy Canadian Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    Eh, draw something with handsome Ilriyas again I can't get my idea to work on paper quite yet.

    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.)

    really you can't do digital art without a tablet of some sort, it helps so much.
  • IlriyasIlriyas The Syrupy Canadian 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.

    Get a Wacom Bamboo. It'll do everything you need. And definitely do not go for the smallest size. You'll feel encumbered.

    The only question now is where can I get these. Does Bestbuy carry them or do I have to order one online? (I'd really like to see a floor model just to test size, I've got a fairly large hand so a size comp would be nice before dumping money on one.)
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx Top EA shill, The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    Best Buy does carry them. Not sure on how their prices compare to newegg or amazon though. You should be able to play with one at Best Buy though.

  • IlriyasIlriyas The Syrupy Canadian Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    Holy crap that's great, same here minute I saw that I got a huge smile on my face.
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx Top EA shill, The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    Hahahaha! I am a very smug pony. Perfect.

    ah man, I can't stop laughing. That's frigging hilarious. Nice work.

    My 10 year old sister: "Terin, what are you doing?..."
    Me: "I'm drawing this man's head on a pony's body."
    My 10 year old sister: "Why would--"
    Me: "That's enough questions."

    Glad you guys like it. :)

    Sometimes, you just gotta believe in yourself and do what your heart tells you is right. Even if that's to put a freakishly tall man's head on a freakishly small pony's body.

    I suddenly have the idea to draw Lynx pony with Sweetie Bell pointing at him yelling "TOO TALL"
