Rarity test

Bought new tablet monitor thing, and what better way to test it out by drawing the best pony around, Rarity!

Now if I could only bring myself to do a serious one...

Celestia's passing.

Done in Paint Tool SAI and PS
Really liking the outcome for Paint tool SAI.

Also, lazy clouds are lazy.

Comic by jackjacko-eponymous:
Sunrise of a New Age

It's a really well done comic, even if you aren't into ponies(unlikely), at least check it out for the art.

Chibi Elsie (Knight Outfit)

I'm not one who usually opts for such a style, but I've always wanted to try my hand at it.

WIP

Unable to finish during book-out weekend.More like unable to find the motivation to finish it, so what else is new?Probably won't finish it.Note: "Detail" or lack thereof, just means close-up, probably should've used that word instead but I'm booking in in about half an hours time and I'm a little too lazy to edit it.

Rainbow Dash - A free spirit

Enlisted in the army, no time to draw. MLP season 2 has started, and needless to say, it's pretty darn awesome. Did a quick doodle, booking back in today *sad face*.

THE HORROR!!!



Excuse the crudely drawn comic, I'm still in shock.

Ponymeme update

UPDATE: Too much final fantasy 13 and iron man influence.

Equestrian Solar Eclipse



Started out innocently enough as a background practice, ended up pony themed.
Haww yeah.

A tad too much space between the clouds and the mountains though, but I'd say it was a good attempt.

Edit: After looking at it again, the right side trees are incorrectly highlighted, and on the whole everything looks like it's taken with an infrared camera or something.
I'll do better next time round.

OMG, ANOTHER ONE?



a short -break- going to do SRS non-pony related piece next.

tumblr?

Following advice from a good friend I may start posting on tumblr
http://cm-art.tumblr.com/

Just signing up and posting ONE picture has shown me how inept I am with these new-fangled-young-people-hippy-dippy website stuff...

Ponyvational poster

EDIT: Fixed some fatal flaws, such as Rarity not having her signature blue eyeshadow.

How to draw pony!

Photobucket

Di-section of Rarity to get all the right poportions.
Stepping stone for next project.

It's always the simple looking cartoons that turn out to be the most abstract
and difficult to draw.

A very lazy pony comic



I'm hooked :(
expect tons of pony-related art.

Squall is a brony

Photobucket



Squall is totally a brony, well, if MLP existed in the final fantasy universe.
I mean, in the first two episodes where Twilight Sparkle was a loner and
had to understand the magic of friendship, don't you just IMMEDIATELY think of Squall?
Maybe I've been playing too much Dissidia.

Anywho, pls excuse the roughness/sketchyness of this picture, got it done real quick because I wanted to go back to watching more MLP OHOHOHOHOHOHO! BROHOOF!

P.S please do not think any less of me... (ya like anyone actually visits this blog)

Edit: After watching 7 episodes into 4am in the morning, I must say the show has a very artistic style going for it.
The ponies are just the same template only given different hair/tail/eyes (much like anime) but the backgrounds and animations are very fluent and very nice.

If I could draw backgrounds as nice as that, I'd be a happy man.

How to draw, the CM way!



Anyway, this is just how I draw and the steps I take.
This is by no means the only way, nor the most effective,
after all, all my art experience comes from... well... experience,
pure trial and error, and figuring out different tricks
that seem to work is part of the fun of drawing.

Anyway, if any of you readers like it, I may do more specific ones in the future.

Elsie idle animation - REDONE!

Photobucket
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Redone, because 3 frames was just unacceptable.
Smoothed it out and added another 2 frames to it, each frame lasting 0.12s
Got rid of her goofy smile too.

I intended it to be animated faster, but .GIF has it's limitations.

Free falling ballsy man

Speed paint (no pun intended)
Had an insaitiable itch to do some painting.

Time spent was only 30min or so, didnt use any references,
and in hindsight, I probably should have, but meh, I'll do a serious one next time!

POKEMON

===============================================================================================================
Close-up
===============================================================================================================

===============================================================================================================
Really just a quick drawing...

Recently finished playing Pokemon Black, and it was really fun, it felt like old school pokemon (I skipped playing ruby/saph or diamond/pearl)
and it's nice to see that they stuck with the same, familiar, battle system throughout
(COUGH unlike final fantasy COUGH).

Also, pick the girl, I don't care what anybody says, the girl makes the game a whole lot brighter.
Basically it replaces the dark blue theme (boy) with pink (girl) which makes it a lot less gloomy.

Also ALSO, Zekrom (black pokemon) looks like a robot, Reshiram (white pokemon) is waaaaaaaaay better.
Zekrom < Reshiram
