    It's the biggest things that are sometimes the easiest to miss. I know I forgot to give Fluttershy a wing (she had the other) during the artist training grounds at one point.

    Flipped the (digital) MM to a random page, drew a quick roper. Looking at the entry they are way stronger than I thought they were, I'm glad I never had to fight one.

    I almost always forget to give non-earth ponies their accessory limbs. Wings, Horns, etc. Sometimes I remember before uploading the image.

    Does it count if you almost exclusively try to draw pony-sized, pony-influenced foxes?

    As for getting good quality versions from paper to screen, Scanner is probably going to give the better results if you have access to one, but you use what you've got and worry about the rest later. It's all good.

    Considering I'm posting using the camera on my phone, which has trouble focusing on anything without extreme contrast at short ranges (such as a sketch), I don't think you should worry about it so much. No one has complained yet.

    Problem is, I can't seem to keep to a style. I keep drifting sideways, or gravitating towards realistic details. A Rarity, attempt at the same style. Howsat?
    (edit: comparing side-by-side with the RD pic - yeah, drifted off into detail again. It's hard to exercise restraint with such things for some reason. Though I guess it's still closer to show-design than my usual style. ^_^)

    I think it's almost all the neck thing. Just as an experiment, I did a quick 30 second edit of Rarity there, just for comparison purposes.

    Spoiler
    Show


    The difference, despite essentially just removing like, two lines, is noticeable I think. I like your style in general, and the quality and confidence of your lines, but detail in the neck just looks strange. It draws attention to a bit of the body we aren't used to having our attention drawn to, like how when you look at a word and it just seems wrong even though you know you spelled it right, or you see someone from a strange angle and for a moment they look like a stranger or even some kind of odd, near-human creature because for a moment it strikes you just how weird the human body is.


    Of course I may be entirely wrong.
    I figure it was worth pitching my 2 cents, as it's not like the excersize cost me any time.

    Hm. Well, maybe. Not in the way you altered it, exactly, but the "neck region" seems to be a common complaint with my drawings. I just can't look at a turned head without noticing the tension lines that form. How about this? Removed what was (supposed to be) a shoulder line, and redrawn the neck tension line so as to be less noticeable. Better?

    Also, new shaded sketch. In my usual style this time. I haven't drawn this pony in a while. Something's going on in several areas of the design there, so some refinements will be done, but I'm still seeking any feedback anybody wants to give.

    You're very involved with the engineering of the neck. It's probably down to how you see the world around you. But, basically, I think my point is that you should put detail where you want people to look. And lots of people find having their eye drawn to someones neck kind of weird. So, the more sparing you are with detail there in comparison to the rest of the pony, theoretically the less likely people are to react strangely to it.

    Definitely an improvement in my opinion. Still looks a little unnatural though, like a fold in the neck rather than stretched skin/muscle. I'm no scholar of cartoon pony anatomy (they are made of marshmallows and rubber) but neck muscles are far more vertical, as well as the tension lines that form. My suggestions:
    Spoiler
    Show
    This also gives the side effect of a more upright posture that would be expected of a pony of fine breeding such as Rarity. Leaving the line right out works as well as demonstrated previously, and produces a more show-style drawing. (I also see what you did there, making her look younger by removing the lines under the eyes).

    Now I'll go draw something properly...

    EDIT: that post above mine was not there when I refreshed and posted originally, but showed up after editing... weird.

    I have to say, I love your style. It reminds me of Scott Pilgrim.


    So, the story behind this one is that the IRC is a wild place, full of as much roleplay as Ponythread itself. In the course of one session, Dive Bomb died, and was given one "free reincarnation" pass, or some-such. I chose to honor the great RP spirits, and come back as a fox; the cyber-fox.

    The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it. ~ Terry Pratchett

    People don't *live* on the Disc anymore than, in less hand-crafted parts of the multiverse, they live on balls. Oh, planets may be the place where their body eats its tea, but they *live* elsewhere, in worlds of their own which orbit very handily around the center of their heads. ~Terry Pratchett again

    Yeah, leg position was hard (why do the legs have to bend backwards?). I figured it out later I think, but I had already drawn them in well so I didn't want to erase. And as someone in ponythread pointed out, I forgot his tail *facepalm*.

    I guess they kind of don't bend backwards, as much as their knee is right at the very top of the leg and it's mostly foot all the way down? That almost makes sense.

    Day 142:

    Part of the hanging our group leader brought back from his conference in China. This one actually does look better in real life, but it took me 24 pictures to even get it this close to focus. (And of course the actual print is amazing).
