    So, it's been almost a year since I last posted to this thread!

    Anyway, feeling a bit bored this evening I thought I'd pick up my sketch pad and have a go at drawing a pony, not seeing as it's been almost a year, what little skill I did have has gone a bit rusty, but I thought I's give it a go regardless.

    So yeah, I attempted to draw a baby Applejack. As I said I'm a bit quite rusty and she doesn't look all that right - her eyes look a bit derby and I'm not really happy with her mouth, but since it's the first thing I've drawn in about a year I'll go with it ;)

    Looks really good to say you haven't drawn anything for nearly a year.

    <Blows dust off thread ...> Deary me, took me a while to find this one, almost had to call in the Time Team ;)

    Anyway, in a fit of boredom this afternoon, I decided to pick up pencil again and have a go at drawing another pony.

    I'm rather pleased with the way she turned out, actually. For once I didn't have any great issue with drawing the eyes, though one thing that was a bit of a pain was my lack of different blue pencils, so some of the outlines aren't exactly the right colour. But still, I'm happy with her :D

    There was nothing anybody could have done. Instant heartsplosion brought on by a massive intake of squee. Don't blame yourself, Doc...

    Well, this isn't something I'd normally do, but this picture's a mite more ambitious than any of my other pictures. I've had this on my sketch pad for a couple of weeks now and I'm just waiting until I've got time to finish it. So here's the WiP of my next picture ...
    [​IMG]
    Those of you with good eyes will recognise it as the picture from @I'dLikeToBeATree's signature ;) The idea is that I'll have this all coloured up like I've done with a few other of my pictures (most recently Princess Luna, a few posts up)

    There are a couple of things that have been giving me some issues though, I can't seem to get Torch Song's mouth to look right and Rarity's chin is also looking a bit hinky and I'm really not looking forward to drawing all those eyes. Also, my scaling seems to have got a but lost somewhere so I think I'll have to be taking the crop tool to the finished piece since I don't really know what's going on with the bottom of the picture.

    Anyway, hopefully, I'll have this one finished soon :D

    Well, it's been a bit of a while since I had anything to post here ...

    If you've been on EqD lately, you'll have seen that after the last two episodes they've been doing "draw X character" threads, so I decided to pick up a pen and have a go ....

    Nice to see that nearly 10 months down the line since your last post and you still do pretty good pics. Looking forward to seeing more :)

    Time to blow the dust off this thread again.

    So, I've been playing around with inkscape and I decided to try vectoring one of my old pony drawings (the really good Pinkie Pie picture from the second page of the thread ;)) This was the result ...

    (wow, that was a bit larger that I was expecting, LOL)

    Anyway, there're a few rough edges here and there, but otherwise I'm quite pleased with how it came out. not bad for my first try at this sort of thing. :D
