MLP drawing tutorial: part 1-5 by Srskandy MLP drawing tutorial: part 1-5 by Srskandy
Update: Sorry if I seem greedy for posting this, but I have a lot of art you may not have seen on my pony tumblr. So... yeah.


Tumblr: [link]

Much appreciated.

(Edit: The one-month 'absence' on my ask blog has been over for quite some time now. Check out the updates!)


Lesson: Drawing the body (of a female pony)

NEW (bonus part of tutorial): [link]

Part two of tut: link


Part 1 out of 5. I will be posting each part as fast as I can make them (and linking them).




In this lesson, we cover a huge-ass file about ways of drawing the body/structure of a pony, basically. I didn't want to make this file even bigger than it was, so things about drawing the head and mane and coloring it will be featured in later ones. Just you wait.

- - -

This is for people who have trouble drawing ponies in that oh-so-cartoony Lauren Faust style.


Lauren.

You have such beautiful ways of drawing anime/cartoon sheet. And your style is really hard to copy, too!
:iconohuplz:



But it's mostly for Spade, who's going to be starting her own fan series of MLP. She wanted a red line of these creatures for practice, or at least some tips. Here's something even better.

I might even be voice acting for some characters in it, so be on the look out for the first episode... if she gets around to making it. :)

- - -


Hope you like. And I hope this inspires you, as well as teaches you how to draw ponies somewhat better than you already do. I won't be disappointed if your results aren't that great as this style can be excruciating to try to imitate, so don't worry!


Seriously. Feel free to post your attempt at drawing. No matter how good or bad it is, I'll be positive.


Good luck, furries, bronies, and humans (though few) that view this. And you're welcome.

I can draw ponies using pencil and paper but I can't draw them on computer. The first page of this tutorial should help.

Thanks. After more than a year of drawing things from MLP, it does get pretty simple.

Of course, now that I look at this again, I kinda wish I could have put more effort into the sketches. I can draw said MLP things much more accurately now than when I can when I first created this.

It's still pretty good. Can I print this out (somehow) and use it to practice? Like, it won't be considered copyright, right?

I don't mind or care what you do with it so long as you don't claim you were the one who made it. Feel free to.

I looks like you drew it with a pencil or a colored pencil, a stencil look.
