Challenge #8: Throwback Thursday

= BEFORE AND AFTER =

The challenge is easy! Pick one of your very first pony drawings and redraw it. There are no rules other than you should post the before and after together. I have posted my own so you may see how horrible my shit was 6 years ago and make fun of it.

*A note about past challenges: None of the challenges ever end. You may do them and redo them in any order and however many times you want. Just because I put up new challenges that doesn't mean you can't do past ones!

I hope you guys enjoy these and hope that they help you improve and have fun doing it!

What the heck is rendering? I hear that term a lot, but isn't it just saving the image?
>>
>>29968332
Rendering: The process of adding form, color, light, shadow and texture to an image. If you take a line drawing and you add color to it, shade it, make it feel like it has mass, form, depth to it, that's rendering.
>>
does anyone else have this thing while working on a large file with tons of layers and paths, where every time you save it takes literally minutes to save? am i the only one? seems to happen on every computer I use, is buying an SSD the only solution?
>>
>>29968332
>>29968343
No, that's blocking-in. Rendering is refining from the block-in, making smooth surfaces smoother and making the textures read better.
>>
>>29968579
Isn't blocking in more or less just very rough rendering?
>>
>>29968064
What kind of envyronment are you thinking about?
If you're going for realism then I would recommend you to watch some of Noah Bradley's videos, but as a general rule, you should try to focus on imitating real life.

>>
>>29968579
Isn't that exactly what >>29968343 was talking about?
>>
>>29968643
>>29968697
Blocking-in is a step on it's own. You can get color, value, and texture (whether it's surface is diffused or spectacular) without adding in too much detail. The process is generally lose, but with things placed right so that when you go over with a render, you don't have to think about things that much. If things are added afterwards it's very minute stuff.

Picrelated is more or less block-in. It's a very old unfinished collab I was doing with someone else. We only got a little bit past block-in stage.

Holy shit. If I were drawing that I'd have 5 layers, maybe 6 tops. I can tell you with 100% certainty that you can cut down on your layers by a lot if you try.

why the christ is this more than 3 or 4 layers

I use paths and fill them, because my hands shake. it looks fucked up if you fill a path and its not on its own layer, at least when its intersecting another part thats filled

Then use a stabilizer. This is insanity.

You're not learning anything by repeating the same shit over and over again. The lack of progress/willingness to move on gives the impression that you are either that naive or that you actually don't care.
>>
>>29969705
It should be.
>>
>>29972730
Color and anatomy are my two strengths. Color theory itself, and the way it's taught in schools is a pretty big meme. If you're looking to go deeper into it, throw out the color wheel meme and everything you were told in grade school or high school, read and study how light actually works, and use your own intuition to make decisions based on what you've learned.

Eh, don't bother with him. Your Owluicius (fuck how do you spell that) looks great but your Twi needs some help. I see you went for a partially realistic style but keeping her front legs and particularly her hooves cartoonish they come out as clubbed and take away from the rest of the drawing which is quite good. I'd also make her muzzle smaller/less wide so she looks more feminine. I ended up just doing a redline nobody asked for, so I hope you don't mind that.
>>29972967
Sorry, the shape of the head was just confusing. I'll finish the redlines on it now.

Hey everyone! Looking for a critique!

I drew up this pone a few days ago, and I know there's something very wrong with it! While I wasn't going for show-accurate, I know there's stuff I need to work on. Before I say what I noticed, I'd like to hear some critiques!
Please help me art friends!
>>
>>29974564
Welll
you need to forget the following ideas:
- "pony shoulder = human shoulder"
- "pony breast = dog breast"
- "pony thigh = ball"

Also consider the following:
- show style of ponies has very wide triangular ears and I'm going to bitch about this because other than the furnishings, your pony is very show-style (proportion and shape)
- the tail bone is the final segment of the spine and does not jut out of the croup
- remember to treat hindlegs as tubes, the same way you do for forelegs
>>
>>29974711
Ah excellent! Thank you for the critique!

This particular pony was a little weird because the way the original artist drew her was decidedly more human like, and I wanted to try and capture a little of that! Especially the furry chest, that was the artist's thing for her.
I've been studying horse anatomy a little, and the shoulders are a little tricky. Still getting the hang of it. Haven't drawn ponies like this in awhile. Very rusty!
Here's a different drawing I did for her. Ignore the pencil sketches, they were just experimentation!

Are those same problems present here, or was I more accurate on my second attempt?

Thank you again for the advice!

How do I into line consistency and weight?
Even doing single strokes I sometimes feel the need to correct it and I think it causes more problem than before.
The eyes for example are fucked up more than in one way but I can't really do it in a single stroke yet and lines get uneven no matter what I do.

Feel free to point out everything else as well, just starting out so I'd appreciate it.
>>
>>29980148

Do some figure drawing, theres are no horse figure drawing sites but here is a human one

reference.sketchdaily.net

This will help you to draw fast and notice things faster, lines dont have to fit exactly where they belong at the first stroke but need to capture the idea of a pose
for line weight you just a need a good brush
for line consistency do some hand exercises

Some of the best advice to learn early, in my opinion, is pic. Contrast is super important for shading.
I hope this helps!

>its a different pose

Jesus, Afh, you're actually on your way to being a decent artist. More of that. More poses. More different poses, and you will see that you don't need all those guidelines since you know the anatomy so well. Get dynamic and have some fun with it.

I gave it a go myself. Arm isn't too long if you were trying to go for a foreshortening thing. The lines you used are kind of jarring, but you look like you know your perspective and how it works. Take advantage of that and try thinking in boxes instead of lines.

It's an improvement but you still have a ways to go.

There are three things I would focus on for now, if I were you:
>Construction
While it looks like you're starting to do a little more of this since the previous drawing, it seems that you're breaking it up into pieces too large. For example, the torso appears to be made out of a single oval, where you should be using at least two, with one for the ribcage and one for the hips.
>Line Control
Try to work on making each line with a single, broad stroke when possible, and try to work more with the elbow and shoulder instead of the fingers and wrist. With practice it should wind up looking far less shaky and "hairy" than what you have now.
>Gesture
Right now the pose is fairly stiff and boring. I would recommend doing a little research into gesture drawing tutorials as well as learning what a line of action is and incorporating it into your drawings. You'll find that even a neutral pose like that one can look a lot more interesting if it's drawn with a line of action in mind.

is shading even necessary on a pone pic? i mean all the pone in the show are fullbright, yet all the highest rated pics have like bob ross quality shading or are those creepy gmod anthro 3d models
>>
>>29986098
Thanks. I'm not the same person that drew the original, but this was my first time drawing a pony. I'm still getting used to my drawing tablet, so the shaky lines were more out of frustration than anything. I'll definitely keep your advice in mind, it'll help a lot.

>>
>>29986563
I'll give it to you straight, there's not much in your drawing that looks like a pony. You don't know what a pony looks like, so look at ponies to get an idea. Compare your drawing to a screenshot or whatever. Also you don't know how a bicycle looks like. Few people do. (If you think you know, draw one from memory no cheating.) To git gud you need to accept the fact that you barely know what anything looks like. That's the first step.
>>
>>29986563
Serious question, did you reference the comic's ponies by Jay Fosgitt?
>>
>>29986563
its the catpone guy :0
>>
>>29986419
Shading is never necessary. But done right it sure does take even a simple draw to another level altogether.

Shading show-style or similar is really tricky though. The figures are super simplified and unshaded for production purposes and most non-show stuff keeps the same aesthetic so apart from good quality figurines there's nothing to really reference from.

And god help you if your style is more realistic. Simple shading like a figurine won't cut it, it'll make the figure look artificial. You need more realism for the shading as well, and that's when it gets complicated, juggling a balance between RL horse complexity and showstyle simplicity.

No problem, but don't be afraid to go even darker on some of those deeper spots! Push it to its limit and you'll be surprised by how much depth you can achieve.

I attached another pic that helps explain it for color a little. Rendering is difficult, so be patient with yourself!

I've tried doing rendering with color and it is super fucking difficult. It is easier to see in greyscale.

Simply put, I wouldn't, as it just doesn't work that well on a quadruped. That said, if you really insist on doing so you need to make it MUCH subtler. Look at real women for reference if you need to, you'll notice that "hourglass" is not nearly as concave as in cartoons

At least you're not tracing vectors anymore, although this still looks a little too close to a common show pose for comfort, guide lines be damned. If you're still tracing then you need to unironically hang yourself.

Hi anons. I struggled to have this horse lay on her belly while having the back hooves make sense, so I improvised and had her back legs lifting her torso and butt off the ground.

>style and mistakes

Style can be a lot of things. Usually the look, feel, and how something is rendered is what makes a style stand out. An artists consistent tendencies can be another. But you can have bad tendencies; broken anatomy, or just the overall use of bad shapes. You can have a style be unappealing and ugly. Of course its all subjective. If you have too many people tell you that you're style is "ugly" then its honestly a good time to reflect on what you're missing and what you need to study to make it better.

https://www.derpibooru.org/tags/artist-colon-ringteam

^a good example of an "ugly" style. It comes off as a 13 year old who just wants an excuse to draw boobs. Everything they draw is just very unappealing to look at.

Like >>29997824 said. Let "style" come from a place of good taste, knowledge, and experience. Show some competency and you can make your art stand out even further than with just gimmicks (IE M-muh style).

>>29997767
>Is there a quick and dirty guide on how to do good throwaway backdrops
>quick

No. Study some graphic design if you want some ideas on how to make effective backdrops. You can make your center piece stand out with contrasting shapes, tangents, and colors. If it's coming from a place of little knowledge then your backdrops are going to be a complete eyesore and ruin the drawing.

https://youtu.be/2vnFdYksnqo
https://youtu.be/RJIWllIMHsg

ESPECIALLY watch the video on tangents. Once you know what a bad tangent is you can start avoiding them in your art immediately.

Underrated post. Drawing skills mean very little if you don't have good design.
Get solid foundations through study and effort, then use that to develop an appealing art style of your own.

If you're looking to develop your own style which you shouldn't be unless you have really gotten your fundamentals down pat then study the styles of artists you like that capture the aesthetic you're going for. Find out what makes it tick and use that knowledge to fuel your own designs.

I can't believe for once you actually did something else.

Neat attempt, but there are plenty of issues. I see you drew a little sun, indicating you aren't a complete foreigner to the idea of a source of light, but it seems you still don't get where the light is supposed to hit. Look at how the forelegs and right arm showcase the light is coming from the bottom left, while the arm shows it's coming from the upper left, etc. The rather subtle way you drew the shading also makes it seem as if though the light source was extremely near Twiggy.

tl;dr go look into how lighting actually works in real life, and get a better sense of where the light really is coming and hitting the object.

Also, I've noticed your eyes still look extremely weird, almost as if they were stickers with no depth. Remember eyes are intended to be an object of their own, just like the head.

While I agree with the fix of the the hair I don't think the alternative proportions for the mouth an will really fit with the rest of the drawing. I also think the more realistic hooves you made would probably benefit from having an increase in their width.

So i'm not sure if that's the right place to ask, but whatever. How do I stop my hand from shaking so much? I dropped drawing because of that few months ago but I'd really want to get back into it, so I picked up the pencil and tried to do my routine warm up of drawing circles, only to find out that my hand still shakes too much. it's infuriating. just to clarify, the problem wasn't always there, it started maybe half a year ago. Am I just making excuses and it will go away once I get better at controlling my hand movements?
>>
>>30014346
If your hand and arm are relaxed but you still got shaky hands, the culprit is probably stress hormones, whether from sleep deprivation, excess caffeine, anxiety, stress, medication side effects or whatever. It could even be anxiety over your shaky hands, I should know.

If some light exercise, rubbing + stretching your arm/hand/shoulders/neck, and counter-stress measures don't help, visit your GP.
>>
>>30014346
>>30014424
Or, a more common culprit, you're mentally blocking yourself from it. Does more or less shaking happen when you sit down to draw as compared to, say playing video games or whatever activity you do to relax in the day? It's not something that's always there too, it's a bad habit you picked up because you forgot how to relax and have fun drawing. It's also a thing that can deter you from even sitting down to draw which looks like the case here, having stopped for a period of months.

Drawing should be meditative, Anon. Fix your posture and learn to control your breathing while drawing. The more result oriented you are before you even start will only mentally block yourself further and you'll freeze up again. Another way to kick this bad habit, is to draw what you like while slowly applying what you learn. You should be doing that nearly 100% of the time starting off anyways.

Your lines are shaky, the tail doesn't have any volume, the front left hoof is higher off the ground than the rear left hoof, and the back right hoof is higher off the ground than the front right hoof. The ear is off, too; it needs to come off the head at a defined point instead of being integrated into the lines for the back of the head and the mane. It's also a little too thin. The part of the head just above the muzzle is too sharply curved, it shouldn't start at less than a right angle from the top of the muzzle. You're also missing nostrils, and the chest seems a little too flat to me. Overall, solid foundations but you just have a little bit farther to go. Apologies for nitpicking.

They're fairly small anatomy errors that it's very easy to overlook right as you come off the incredible high of finishing a drawing. I don't know what chemicals are dumped into my system to make the drawing I just finished look like the next Mona Lisa but they make it easy to ignore little mistakes. Just keep drawing as much as you can to eradicate these little flaws and, once you've finished drawing, go back the next day, look over it, and fix whatever mistakes you notice, because they'll be there. It's what I do on the rare occasions that I actually draw something. Shit works.

This isn't about practicing, this is about you being a complete and utter failure of an artist. You just posted the same thing twice, and your excuse is that you're "practicing" shading?
You're not practicing, you're posting your shit in hopes of someone giving you a detailed list on what you're doing wrong.
I'm honestly astonished at how you keep doing stuff like this. People have told you ways of getting better at sketching, drawing faster, to study, whatever will help you to get good, and you still seem to ignore most of it.
You fail at self-critique, something I'd argue is one of the most important parts of being an artist.

two options for this,
option one would be to use paths and fill them. you can modify them however you like this way and it will make perfectly clean lines if done right, but its much more time consuming as you must go around the entire line, not just recreate it but go around its edges.

the second option is to use like a wacom tablet and make quick decisive strokes, that way they dont come out all shakey. if your program allows you to rotate the canvas (in krita its ctrl+[ and ctrl+]) then use that in case you're like me and can only do good lines in certain directions.

You know, I agree with the others that
A. You need to try different poses, and
B. You need to study the tutorials, or just google "shading," "crosshatching," etc, because all the questions you're asking I've been able to find answers to on my own, and I'm no artist. Pic related; crosshatching example.

That said, they really are being unnecessarily assholish, accusing you of posting the same things when if they actually looked at your pics, could see you are making changes. Don't let the oozing reddit tier elitism get to you. I've been following your progress from your very first post, and in fact, yours are some of the first ones I look for when dropping in a new thread to see what you've managed to do. Keep up the practice, and the posting, but seriously, do branch out a bit.

It was a sketch I detailed and smoothed a little and I forgot to change highlight from flat one to this slightyly shaded. I don't like the left arm too. I just had no idea what to do with it so... Do you have any idea for what can I do with it? I'm empty.

It might be the perspective, but the hocks (ankles?) don't look like they're at the same level. The mane also isn't growing out of the neck, which it should. The wings also look a little out of place, and the left shoulder looks misshapen.

Maybe I am pathetic because I draw mostly nsfw, but this is what gives me fun. Isn't fun the thing?
Don't I practice anatomy by drawing ponies all the time?

Being proud of making lines on a piece of paper is like being proud that you're a homosexual. There's something fundamentally wrong with the way you think if you've "drawn so many ponies." and haven't improved. If you haven't learned from the last 20 pony drawings, do you think making the same exact mistakes for the next 50 pony drawings will make you a better artist? Mistakes are good, but if they occur more than once or twice, you should be figuring out why you're making the same mistakes instead of bitching in the thread when people are reluctant to spoon feed you.
>>
>>30055213
Anon. Do you even read whatever the fuck you're saying?

Not everyone's the same Anon, some people are better at learning shit the 'hard way', others aren't.
Having teachers telling you that you're shit and you shouldn't ever be proud of whatever you're doing isn't helping anyone.

>>
>>30055282
Than you REALLY shouldn't equate it to self worth. Artists don't make a masterpiece out of every drawing because we're (hopefully) constantly making new mistakes to learn from. Those that think their last piece is directionally proportional to their self worth are the ones that get depressed more than most. Because it only encourages thoughts like, "I did bad therefore I am bad."

Stop thinking so deeply about it. Just draw and have fun you cucks.

Could you explain what you mean by this?

I tried spinning up this Twilight swimming with her submarine pals underneath a ship. It's loose but I'm trying to work with perspective lines and cuboids to establish her major shape.

If another pair of eyes could lend a hand and suggest what ought to be fixed that'd be awesome. Perspective is tough but hopefully this new method helped some.

Looking for a good style when drawing a featureless crotch. I have a client who likes to have a SFW and NSFW version of his commissions, and I'm not really satisfied with how I'm currently doing it. Pic related. Redline would be appreciated.

this.

The volume of where you expect her genitals reads as if part of the same mass/surface as the inside of her buttock.

Maybe it's because you defined a space where it would be, but it has a separate contour from the rest. (grn)

the shading is inconsistent with the expected, and omitted line that would define the location of genitals, so it's being realized by the viewer as additional weight associated nearby.

>draw featureless crotch
think of the crotch like a rounded, rather narrow surface like a panty crotch

the crotch features, male or female, are attached onto that rounded surface

avoid excess broadness and volume or you'll get the dreaded diaper look

don't draw in the entire outline of the buttock, the connection isn't that sharp and drawing it in makes the entire limb look like it's an entirely separate piece

same thing with the hocks

be aware that the naked triangle on the dock is located centered on the underside of the dock and does not reach the sides

you can do whatever to the volume, but if you don't adjust the bones the pose will be as awkward as before

For the pony on all fours, the neck shouldn't flow into the back that seamlessly and the forehooves should be further forward.
>>
>>30071551
Yeah, I don't think I properly showed how the neck attaches to the back. I also sometimes make the legs too far apart so I guess I overcompensated even though this is supposed to be more than just a standing pose. Thank you.

The lower legs are still detached from the thighs and the arm is still short and stubby and doesn't connect with how you drew the shoulder line and the bottom arm line. I can't redline it this moment or I would

I feel lost with it. I liked what I did at first and >>30071402 this guy made exaclty same skeleton as I used to make it. It seem's they bent in possible way but you find something wierd about them. No I feel like I've draw a paralized pony instead of what I had in mind.

first one (Luna) is about as fucked up, but has better buttock area

>>30075248
From the begining when I've done first line I knew this is not natural. But tried to make it work. It's not a horse, it's a cartoon pony in a fucking lingerie.
I'll try to lift whole butt, it's more into sitting position now, maybe this is what causes the issue. Also making tibia longer might help.

Yes, the ankle joint is lower than the knee joint. Just draw pony legs as normal for satyrs, unless you want to make them more anthro like this satyr.

>>30072839
Your original drawing of the back legs is "fine". Just maybe slightly painful. Like how it's hard for you to put your feet exactly flat when laying on your belly. The ankle does not like to go straight.
