    Indeed, 'tis a tuber tree. Wasn't completely my intention to draw it like that, but I'm sure there is a type of tree somewhere that is like that. (Looking back at it it looks to me almost like a zombie tree that died and now has some small new growths coming out; must be the graveyard setting). Also maybe the fact that I went to bed last night at five this morning; I'm a little addled right now (and very glad I had the day off).

    That zombie looks really happy... I think he just got a promotion.

    Yeah, they do a good job of associating colour schemes with particular ponies. That or the mane/tail is usually enough to recognize one by (assuming you are familiar with the show of course). And that Twi/Jake thing is a little creepy (now I am trying to imagine what would happen if you merged their personalities).

    S'been a long time since I've been here.

    I have been drawing, just not every day. On the one hand it's a load off my mind. On the other hand it's not really doing me any good. I think I need to do a schedule or something. Every other day perhaps.

    I did a few avatars for people. You'll probably see them when pirate week rolls around (Sept 16-22). Except Pokonic's which he has been wearing since I made it.

    Pokonic:

    This is why I make sure to draw every day, even if most of the time its complete rubbish or I don't have the spare time to actually do anything proper (which is most days). Even if it isn't doing me much good if I don't have the opportunity to actually learn, its the sitting down and doing it that's important in my mind.

    So I'm on tumblr when this comes up on my dashboard:

    ...
    Spoiler

    Doesn't look a damn thing like me. Save for my stupid hair.


    What I've learned from this (apart from the fact that I have no clue how to do feet) is that being given a task to do works much better than simply trying to do something without prompting.

    So here's the deal. I would like you guys to suggest things that I should draw. Then I will draw them. Then you will suggest more things, I will draw them, and so on. I'm hoping that this kind of thing will spur me on to action, instead of lazing around as I currently am.

    Incidently, that first picture now applies to you all. Draw yourselves! Now!

    Why would you ever draw in that position? It does look very uncomfortable.

    Getting spatial relations and proportions right (or look believable) is the most important thing in drawing (i.e., before dealing with values, color, and texture) I think, more important than the little details and definition.
    Thanks. I think I'll try some skulls tomorrow, working on the basic shapes, as you say.

    Based on:

    Today I have learned:
    Horses are very buff in the chest.
    Horses have skinny legs.
    I have difficulty drawing those legs. I think I got the positions about right in the end, but getting the shape and general thickness is very tough.

    Not a bad first try, though I think I'll give this another go soon. Perhaps tomorrow, after the skulls.

    Meh. They're okay. More focused on the general shape this time, but could still use some work.


    Didn't leave myself much time to do another try at a horse. Spent most of the day playing Pokemon Conquest.

    Watched a few of those videos on Ctrl+Paint. Very interesting stuff. I'll have to try another full colour drawing soon so I can test stuff out.

    The proportions are still a bit off, mainly on the front facing one, the unevenness of the singe lines is distracting to me. I think that correcting the asymmetries (esp. in the cranium, jaw, teeth and eye sockets) would do a lot to improve the general look. The side one looks a lot better, though you didn't follow your outline very well for the front of the teeth/chin, thus giving it a large underbite.

    Of course, I'm one to talk, with my own head that has the proportions messed up. Behold.
