I jumped on the bandwagon! I know it looks like a blood cutie mark, but it's supposed to be a firework, since I really like amusement parks. Yes, I put my hair in a ponytail, but it's a really short one. I don't know what my pony name should be, though. Any suggestions?


missscythe [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 22:12:30
I'm no good with names, but I knew that mark was a firework straight away - and I really love it! This is awfully cute :33
[anon]miles 2013/2/18 - 22:30:41
ahhh your pony is so cute *w*
i love the shading especially. it is so nice.
ferris [Profile] 2013/2/19 - 19:45:54
Thanks you guys. I only clarified that it was a firework because my sister thought it was blood. ^ ^;
[anon]bludrgn 2013/2/19 - 21:17:5
well, first, mare or stallion? ^^`
I also thought it was a firework before I read the description. not everyone will have such a dark outlook at first glance... that said, ironically my name idea is Dark Spark, for the grey coloring and mischivious look in thier eye.
I've aso got some thoughts to keep the mark from looking like blood. the easiest would be to add another color, to either the inner or outter sparks. or if you don't mind changing it a bit, but keeping the firewok idea, maybe try a firecracker or bottle rocket image?

Welcome to NDA. :) Your style is really shiny.

Welcome to the boards. C:
I absolutely love the soft coloring, and the background.
moo492 [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 16:51:58
Welcome to the boards! I hope you like it here! It looks like you already have the oekakai down pretty well. :) I'll be looking forwards to seeing more art from you!
lemmyloop [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 17:34:58
Like everyone else said: Welcome to the board! I love how soft this looks. And the colors you used in your shading are just lovely.
geckodragon [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 18:25:44
WELCOME TO NDA!!!!!!! =D
This is great!!! I can't wait to see more of your artwork! hope you like it here!
missscythe [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 22:11:28
The warmest of welcomes to you! This looks beautiful, I love the highlights and shading on the shirt so much! And those simple, yet aesthetically pleasing looking clouds in that background :3
I hope you enjoy NDA ~ <3
[anon]miles 2013/2/18 - 22:31:40
hey howdy hey! welcome to the boards =w=
this is bloomin' incredible for a first picture... i really really love it! your colours are brilliant, and those simple clouds are just lovely.

lovelylonely [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 4:37:31
Wowzee wowza
okay so I've been meaning to make a collection of all my current 'sonas and I thought it would be cute to add an introduction kind of thing to it for our newest members because I haven't done it for a while, and because I've been frequenting the boards more and more. c:

You can call me many things; Damien, Dee, D, Lovelylonely, just Lovely, just Lonely, or anything else you can think of. I'm 18 and I've been drawing on NDA since I was 11 (minus a few hiatuses) wowza! My birthday is May 11th. I'm gender fluid so use whichever pronouns you want for me, though most of my 'sonas are gender neutral.
About my 'sonas:
LovelyLonely is my fanpony of course. c: Earth ponies represent. She owns a pet farm, similar to Fluttershy, I guess, but mostly corgis.
That litte chubby bird monster is just something I came up with one and I love, love, loved it and offered my close friends birdsmonstersonas to go with it. uwu
Dee is my Pokesona. Ask me about my team. You'll be jealous. c;
DQE is a long story and inside joke so I'll spare the details. =u=
"Ugly" Deefurrious is an ahuizotl and is my main 'sona, so you'll see him the most. He usually wears armor, but I wanted to draw him naked. :3c
And the unnamed harpy lady is from a dream I had where I was her, and I only used her for a short while but I love her design so I keep her around.
About the other things on the drawing:
I do use opossums and corgis in doodles about feels from time to time when I feel they're necessary.
Harlie is a scottish fold anthro and he's my little chubby baby. Don't touch him. Same goes for Tox. owo
Toxica is a demon that manipulates shadow and uses voodoo to get what he wants. And he's the only character you need permission from me to draw.
Harlie and Tox aren't 'sonas of course, but they are largely based on me, so they mean a whole lot. They are my precious babus. c:
That about sums these guys up so, I'll wrap it up by saying feel free to talk to me here or send me a message on deviantart, my username is somnolance, and yeah! Nice to meet you all! uwu


saphira [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 11:13:13
you are so fab, this is why i love you. uwu
[anon]miles 2013/2/18 - 12:20:44
ahhh this is awesome! i love how unique all your characters are, and i love how you drew them all. their poses and expressions really give a lot of insight into their personalities =w=
lemon-macaw [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 12:41:28
you and all of your characters are absolutely wonderful asdjkls <33
lovelylonely [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 15:45:32
No, you three are precious not me, end of story. c:
but thank youuu<3
missscythe [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 22:16:39
All these characters are simply gorgeous! What a fine collection you have here :3
lovelylonely [Profile] 2013/2/20 - 14:31:22
thank youu uwu <3

Kabuki-pony!

Of course, I only just realised that making her a pegasus makes the whole 'wall-crawling' part her abilities completely useless, but oh well... Maybe the wings are a cunning illusion. Who knows? And that the whole Japanesey-name/theme + sakura background makes me look like a massive weeaboo, but again... Oh well.

Comments and crit welcome.


infernowolf [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 19:59:9
Very clean line art. And I love those little poofs (not sure what else to call them lol) by her hooves. Cool design :)
[anon]miles 2013/2/18 - 21:22:47
i agree, i love the little cloud thingies on the hooves! and i love how transparent you made them. i also love how the background doesn't detach from the main drawing =w=
reluctantbrony [Profile] 2013/2/19 - 4:29:12
Thank you. :3

I think I should make my backgrounds/lineart match a bit more- watercolour with pencil, what am I doing. Can't use the pen tool proper, though. :<
[anon]bludrgn 2013/2/19 - 21:36:54
interestingly enough, it's canon in the show that pegasi can use thier wings to seemingly walk on walls. so in this case, the wings arn't redundant so much as they could be a reason.
Though, scrolling down to the human version of the character, being a unicorn would give her all those abilities. Unless you want to keep them as a spirit/demon thing... whatever. *shrug*
You do very nice watercolor work, have you ever used it for shading on the subject?

So, me and Drey's 3 years anniversary of being together is coming pretty soon, that makes me very happy. So just a little something I guess.


tayuyaxn [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 22:9:56
Didn't actually take that long - was chatting at the same time.
bleufire [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 22:12:2
D'aww, so cute <3
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 22:12:21
Awww, how adorable. I love the way you draw hair, it's so pretty. You do a good job. Man I wish I had that shirt. I can't believe it's been 3 years already, time really seems to fly. And the best thing that you can do is take whatever comes to you, y'know? Glad that you came to me. <3
[anon]miles 2013/2/18 - 22:32:48
this was worth the wait!
really sweet pic =w= i like the colours, too. they're muted, but it gives a cozy atmosphere.

My first ever oekaki.
(I drew one before but the program ate it. Shame I wasn't logged in either!)

So, is 25 too old to start drawing?


[anon]miles 2013/2/17 - 16:30:42
you're never too old to start drawing!
this is also really great for your first oekaki. i love the fire and details on the hair and face =w=
welcome to the boards! hope you enjoy your time.
keidarancitygirl [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 19:16:25
Ditto Miles, lol.
Well, I haven't been on boards long enough to really introduce myself, but I'm Keidarancitygirl, and you can call me Keidar. (because my name is so long, :P)
catgirl [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 19:45:49
Absolutely not!

Welcome to NDA :)
reluctantbrony [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 20:5:47
Oooh, I like that perspective! (Odd, I know, but I am generally.)

Welcome to NDA! I'm ReluctantBrony- you'll see my work around a bit, mostly ponies and women and blatant abuse of the Watercolour tool. I use art and coffee substitute for sleep. It's 4am. Also, your first drawing makes mine look like garbage...
missscythe [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 21:57:57
Wow! That background has an awesome 3D effect. This is a great first go at the oekaki indeed!

Welcome to NDA and the wonderful world of drawing :3
We hope you enjoy your stay ~ <3
ferris [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 22:1:53
Welcome to NDA! If there ever was an age limit for anything, you would see a lot less gifted people. Anyways, I go by ferris on NDA and I just noticed that I'm really bad with introductions. If you don't mind, may I give you some pointers on this piece?
infernowolf [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 0:21:3
You are NEVER too old to appreciate or create art. :)

This is definitely a lot better than my first oekaki lol. I love the perspective here. Hope you stick around. :)
zer [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 6:2:5
Thanks for thew warm welcome everyone.

A cut in my employment hours has given me a lot of free time to enjoy myself with so I started to doodle on receipt papers and such. That's about the extent of my artistic training.

Ferris, Feel free to go ahead and give me some pointers, although I am not sure how much it will help. I am still a super beginner and still I see a bunch of flaws in my picture.
Ha Ha, practice practice practice. right?
Tutorials are always super welcome because I do not know much about drawing.
tayuyaxn [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 9:31:50
You're never too old to try anything you wish to do. As for tutorials...
There's a lot of them on DeviantArt: [link]
Select Resources and Stock Images, then search for what you need.
Buying a few how-to-art books that go along your interests are never a bad idea either.
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 10:33:20

Ferris, Thanks for the critique. Not often do I draw humanoids So I will have to practice.

Around the time I first joined the boards, I said that I was going to draw the entire Pokedex as wolves.
I remember drawing Ivysaur and I think that's where I stopped ahahah~

Anyway, I remembered this just recently and I still like the idea so I've decided I'll draw my /favourites/ as canines instead. Although, I still have a lot of favourites. :3

Firstly: Charizard.
(Mainstream, I know. But I really have loved him since day one!)


lizziecat1279 [Profile] 2013/2/16 - 21:7:57
OuO This is amazing to look at I love the skritchiness of it! That certainly was an auspicious goal, but it's good to see you haven't completely abandoned it with this version of doing it (with your faves instead of all)
//rambling
lemmyloop [Profile] 2013/2/16 - 22:51:21
Oh, this looks really cool. I especially love the long tail. Charizard makes a great wolf.

I can't wait to see more from this series! It's an interesting exercise. Man, makes me want to draw a strange Pokemon like Chandelure or Togekiss as a wolf. Those would look weird!.
dynasty_dragon [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 0:25:25
I think charizard looks great as a wolf, and in your style it just looks even better! I love redrawing some ideas that I used to have to see how it would turn out now, and how much I've improved! In your case, it looks amazing :)
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 6:21:19
I remember seeing this in Escrow and being like, that's a cool winged wolf...and now I see it's Charizard, and that's even cooler! I like how the little flame is still coming off the end of the tail. Fluffy Charizard! I love the way you drew the paws.
[anon]miles 2013/2/17 - 16:37:7
ahh gosh this is the coolest thing ever *w* i love your use of the pencil tool, and the pen pressure is fantastically used. i also really love how you drew the flame on the tail.
i can't wait to see how you portray the others.
catgirl [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 19:46:30
Charizard makes a cool wolf.

Then again, you draw cool wolves. :>
missscythe [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 21:52:21
Lizzie - Oh I know! I can't believe how young and crazy I was, heh. /shakes head And thank you! I've realised that I can't seem to work with oekaki if I try and be neat, so skritchy, scratchiness with the pencil it is :3
Lemmy - Aw thanks so much! Charizard is definitely one of the easiest there is to convert. I have some lined up in my favourites that are going to need quite a bit of thought that's for sure, hahah n~n;
Dynasty - I agree! I can definitely do a much better job now than I could have then, so part of me is glad I never stuck to it hehe. Thank you so much! ;~;
Dreya - Ah yesss, I thought someone might see it in escrow, I saved it a number of times D: I'm glad so you like it! Thank you!
Miles - Ffff thank you so much <3 I hope the rest turn out alright!
Cat - Aw, thank youuu ;o;

<3
ferris [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 22:3:31
This is so awesome. The lines are just beautiful. You should draw more of these. :)
missscythe [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 22:52:48
Thank you so much!
infernowolf [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 0:22:3
Awesome concept! I love the way you draw fur :3 Especially on that tail.
Looking forward to more. :)
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/2/18 - 7:25:6
I have never seen the pencil tool used so beautifully :)

in my opinion everyone should have at least one stoner/alcholic character
i have like seven and here's one

his name is eggs
he used to have an actual name but he hasn't used it since he was a kid and doesn't remember it
he plays piano at the local bar so he can get free drinks, but he's actually really good at it


lovelylonely [Profile] 2013/2/15 - 20:19:10
I know what you mean, I have around 11 or 12 of them >-<
but this is such an adorable character design and that hat is well drawn. uwu
ferris [Profile] 2013/2/15 - 21:56:20
Awesome character. I really like his background story. I have an several alcoholic characters and one character who smokes.
dynasty_dragon [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 0:28:49
Haha, I love his name! I think the story you've thought up for him is well thought out! I like the detail in the nose :)
[anon]miles 2013/2/17 - 16:48:8
i need to get some more of these kinds of characters.. they are always so fun.
i love the look of this character.. and the way you drew the muzzle, ears and hair is just so nice to look at.

there it's submitted. I can stop having heart attacks, about it not saving.
my timer is always ridiculously high. I tend to stare for hours, or leave it open while I look for refferences...

They're not characters, just examples of the wild, animal people from my wolrd.


bludrgn [Profile] 2013/2/15 - 19:11:28
annnd amonst other things (probably) I forgot to take out the color dots in the corner... *eye-roll/face-palm*
lovelylonely [Profile] 2013/2/15 - 20:21:58
I'm blown away at the wolf's face and the texture of the fur c:
ferris [Profile] 2013/2/15 - 21:57:56
I agree with lovelylonely. It's nice how you chose a dark red background instead of a brighter red.
kanadra [Profile] 2013/2/16 - 14:20:29
I love how the time is 18:18:18. xD
Great job with the fur textures! And the shading is lovely too.
I agree with the others, that wolfs face is just awesome.
The poses and the movement are really nicely done. Nice job!
dynasty_dragon [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 0:33:6
I noticed the time too Kanadra :P
That fur is just amazing. I agree with everyone else, that wolf's face is really awesome! Fantastic work!
[anon]miles 2013/2/17 - 16:49:4
gOSH that's incredible! the detail in your fur and the motion in the poses is just phenomenal. i can't stop staring at this. there is so much depth it's so briliant *w*
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/2/19 - 13:15:11
I kept forgetting to comment on this. As everyone has said, the fur texture is amazing. I'm digging your lineless style, you got such a nice clean edge! The shading in this is lovely, and really nice work with the perspective.
[anon]bludrgn 2013/2/19 - 21:26:33
Thanks everyone for the comments ^_^
I also like how the wolf came out. The animation should show that I had no idea what I was doing, untill I got some nice refferences at least. ^^` but now I know, and the future should be better for it C:

Meet Kabuki: wall-crawling, teleporting, illusion-making, walking-through-objectsing ninja wannabe and the world's most useless superhero. Generally well intentioned, but lazy and a notorious petty thief; she's more likely to use her abilities to steal food or shiny objects than save the world. Whatever you do, don't call her fat.

(Why yes, it is a self-portrait... How did you guess?)


1world1name [Profile] 2013/2/15 - 18:29:40
No matter how useless a hero, they must look somewhat cool. I think the mask and design are cool.
lemmyloop [Profile] 2013/2/15 - 18:44:57
Man, this might sound weird but I really like that stylish looking K logo! It fits will with the red and white designs on the rest of the outfit.
ferris [Profile] 2013/2/15 - 21:59:54
Darn it, now I want to make a super hero of myself. I really like the paint-y background. It looks so nice with the blended colors in between.
[anon]miles 2013/2/17 - 16:53:10
this is pretty awesome :D i love the colour scheme especially. and the costume is also very nice. i like how it's revealing, but the body isn't super-model material like most superheroes. it's a really refreshing sight.
reluctantbrony [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 20:6:52
'Cos it's my body, and... Let's say I'm realistic about my own looks. :P

Did not take me this long, left it open while on face book, watching TV and just goofing off.

took 3 days from time to time.

I love the detail in this, very proud.


heather [Profile] 2013/2/15 - 15:34:27
Comment box cut me off... :/

Anyway this is Hayley, in her favorite sun spot, yea yea vampires dont melt in the sun, however Darren believes that it takes away your vampiric touch.

I was going to say Happy Valentines to all of my friends, especially BrownWolfCub who drew Lucky for me.

C&C is welcome.
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/2/15 - 15:54:40
I likey :)
The sky is amazing, and the scales are awesome too. Fun to look at. Nice job!
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/2/15 - 18:16:31
I like your dragon in this picture, The scales you drew under the neck look very pretty. I like how you drew the texture on the wings, too, and the pose is very cool.

I have to disagree with Imagamaker about the sky, though. While the colors you chose are very pretty, the way that you used the dodge tool makes it look extremely unnatural and a little sloppy. [link] Here is a reference picture of a sky with some of the same colors as yours. What I would suggest is to use the pen tool or the watercolor tool to try and mimic a real picture of the sky. One of the best ways to learn to draw something is to look at references. The airbrush tool can be useful for blending, but it tends to look somewhat messy if it is the only thing used. The dodge tool can make everything look unnaturally bright and shiny, and while this may seem cool, it can end up looking gaudy. Trust me, your skies will look so much more amazing if you use a small brush and try to paint one from a reference. Another thing I would suggest to do is give your character a little more definition to the eye. It's okay if you want it to glow red, but if you add different shades of red, it will make it glow even more. I also recommend you use the watercolor tool or pen tool to shade everything else, too, and try to use different shades of the color. It looks like you shaded the background with plain black on the grass, which can make it look kinda grungy. It will look so much cleaner if you use different shades of green. Well, I hope this isn't too many critiques for you, good luck!
lemmyloop [Profile] 2013/2/15 - 18:43:38
I have to agree with Dreya about the sky. I'm really not a big fan of the doge tool. It's an easy tool to misuse.

I also feel the same way about textures, but I think you did a good job with them here! You made good use of the Oekaki textures on the dragon's smaller black scales. It's a really cool effect, and I think you pulled it off. I like the belly scales as well!

As for critiques, I think you might want to look up reference photos of big animals in order to see how their hind legs work when they're sitting. I'm having a bit of a hard time telling what's going on with the dragon's back leg.

Like i said a while back, i'm not very good at backgrounds.

The crits you both gave me are really helpful, im still trying to get used to all of this, so far using a diffrent shade on the same color has proven difficult to me, i just figured if the character stood out then the back ground wouldnt matter as much, but image is everything.

the way i do things its hard to not to mess up. i do take all of these things into consideration im just not able to change the way i execute my drawings or remember the crits while drawing.

I go back and fix cetain things if i feel they dont look right, the eye was one of them, aside from trying to make her look vampiric i wanted to try to incorporate a hellish glare. - mission failed.

Either way i still have improved more than ever, - my old art was god-awful.

Oh, I hope my crits didn't discourage you! Please don't stress too much about making everything perfect! We all progress at our own rates. As long as you're making the try to improve, that's what counts! Just remember that when we give critiques we are only trying to help. I look forward to seeing more of your art, and watching you get better and better! Don't be afraid to try new things, to experiment. Sometimes you won't like how it turns out, but sometimes you'll love the results!

I think that you really did improve. I don't exactly know what you did, but I agree that your art is better now. :)

Oh, you most definitely have improved! It's been impressive just how fast. Lemmyloop has good advice. And, yeah, the purpose of the critiques is to give advice on how to make your future pictures better (since it's hard to get critique here until after a pic is finished). Anyway, about that back leg, although it's reasonable for the back legs to splay a little, the angle should still be a lot closer to that of the outstretched foreleg than the crossed one. (Good job on that bent forleg, btw, that can be a hard thing to draw.)

I agree, you definitely have improved! I hope my long list of critiques didn't make you feel like you failed - you didn't. I only offered the advice so that you could continue to improve. And everything I said was my opinion. If you like the way you drew something, by all means keep doing it that way! Your art is yours, and no one can change it except for you.

Thank you all for the kind words. :D

Happy valentines to you too! The texture and the nose look great ;3 and the belly scales.
[anon]miles 2013/2/17 - 16:57:23
agreed with the others =w= remember though even if you have improved heaps, there's always room to improve more. i dont mean that in a discouraging way.
i really love the shape of the snout and the details on the scales *w* it looks great.

This is very creative! And I really love all the detail in those wings, the sketchiness of it makes it look really cool I think :)
[anon]miles 2013/2/17 - 16:59:17
this is very beautiful.. i love the monochromatic use of black and white. it gives it a simplistic but formal feel.
though, i'm having a little trouble making out the picture.. maybe if the background and shadow were a different colour/tone it would make it easier to see.

The shading is real nice :)

Aww, this is really sweet but sad :'( A really great job using blues to make the atmosphere cold and sad. I'd really like to know if there was a story behind this picture!!!
frost_star [Profile] 2013/2/17 - 14:53:0
there is a slight story behind these two. A short little thing i write when I'm bored.
[anon]miles 2013/2/17 - 17:1:19
this is very lovely. i love the emotion between these two and the shapes of the muzzles.
however, the white wolf character's eye is a little too close to the ear. where you drew the fur should be where the eye is, so in this case the fur would be covering the eye.
[anon]frost_forgot_to_log_in 2013/2/18 - 16:43:5
i was wondering why the eye looked out of place. thank you for telling me
