ArtPonyMDP's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Been drawing since I was a child, I'm a musician with a bit of classical animation training.
I like to hang out over at the Equestria Daily IRC chat channel, #EquestriaDaily or #EquestriaDailyArt if you wanna come hang out with other artponies!


Getting the urge to draw again, but whom should I draw...been a little while since I draw  MLP, hmm...Kind feeling another Equestria girls drawing. Maybe Trixie? Haven't drawn her in a while. Cheerilee? Maybe Rarity or Pinkie Pie, or should I try one I've never drawn and maybe do lyra and bon bon? DJ Pon3 or Octavia? oooooo I can't decide...hmm. hmm indeed.
Volleyball anyone?
Have i got this right yet? Cleaned it up a little and added some small level of detail and context. Lets say its volleyball at the beach. Good enough. This isn't a drawing of some other/ an established character,I just sort of winged it thinking a girl at the beach would pull her hair back after swimming. I had some trouble with the feet. Ladies, your thoughts on my accuracy with a pencil? Or do you spot something I've missed in the design?
Anatomy study: female 2
Another anatomy study. I find my problem areas are usually where the belly connects from the underside of the rib cage and on to the hips. Symmetry still is a bit rough but drawing the stick figure skeleton definately helps even things out. I think I'm getting better with the legs but its tough to find a none stylized reference on what the knee looks like in various positions... i think thats a bit closer to the real deal.

I said i was going to improve my art this year, i can see a marked increase in skill and knowledge but i feel it hasn't been fully internalized. It takes me several hours just to draw this much with the more realistic and less lazy art style. The more i practice though the faster I'll get. Having embarked on this quest to draw better and learn anatomy has allowed me to draw more advanced poses and expressions so it should be fun to look back in a year or so and see how much I'll improve.
My focus here was to work on accuracy for the torso and limbs. Once i feel ive got that down I'll work in drawing better hands and feet.
I enjoyed Meiling's outfit when she was briefly a cat girl for episode 14 of Cardcaptor Sakura:Clear card, so I tried to draw it, ended up looking a tad like a Disney character but there's my attempt! I don't hate it. What do you think?
The eternal struggle
"I'mma draw a clamp style anime character!"
A few minutes later...
"God dammit it looks like Tinkerbell..."

Oh well, I'm rollin' with it.


Very unique mix of realism and fantasy in your style. your use of lighting is excellent. Apple jack looks like she's in her teen age ye...

I really like that you outlined your art, it helps it pop more and it makes the eyes strain less to find the details. Great use of colo...

This is where browsing inbox really pays off. I am glad to have stumbled over your profile. Traditional art is my passion and your art definitely hit the right spot.

Your paintings are so full of colour and details, to the point it is chaotic at times, since everything has a strong outline. I like that! I enjoy magnifying and seeing the smallest lines you have drawn.

You have a pretty gallery there and I am excited to see more.
