01 by 8-Xenon-8 01 by 8-Xenon-8
I post so many of these sketch dumps, so I'm just going to start labelling them by number... starting with 01.

All of these were either drawn last night while I was laying in bed, or today at school o3o
Apparently by doing those lineless pics, I've found ANOTHER style to draw in, it's quite fun, and has a lot more detail than the other ones I use... I like that, small details are fun uvu
Whether you guys like it or not is another question, I don't really care though, I like it, and my sister likes it, so that's all that matters to me.

Well, I'm going to look up those bones I left myself notes for on here now

Inspiring--and the second time I've seen "Xenon" as a name this week. Unrelated, but fun. Anyways yeah, I appreciate the way your style is quite versatile--something that I've actually been thinking about exploring more, lately. So this serve as a real cool example of that. Also, it's cool how you're actively critical of your work--but don't bother too much with what others think. I know you said you didn't care much about whether others liked it or not--but just writing that is... a sign that you sort of do care, or that you are just a little worried that people will not like the style in some way. Don't worry about it--you seem to be good with criticizing your own stuff, and if somebody says something dumb like "I dun liek" just consider what they might mean, and move on.

Anyways, sorry didn't mean to get into that psychology rant. Nice work. <3

Woah. I've always been jealous of your drawing skills haha. :laughing: Your sketches are much better than anything I think I've ever drawn, doodle or not a doodle. :XD: And it's stuff you can produce every day. I mean.. wow. =P It takes me so long to come up with a nice idea for a picture, and it never turns out half as good as your daily sketches!! :noes:

Thanks! It really doesn't take much work. All I do is look up some pictures of Skeletal anatomy on a particular animal, and then maybe watch a few Run-cycle videos to get a feel for how the bones can move; nothing difficult! ;b

That sounds like cheating... I'm in!

Yeah, that does sound pretty good. I learn best through observation and study, so that might be how I learn some of these. I mean, I love my style, but I feel like it's missing a sense of realism to it. So I may try that at some point. Thank you for the advice ^_^

lol true. Though most people would say if you want to learn about anatomy you need to take a class for it. XD

Really nice anatomy stuff, though; most people draw ponies more cartoony, so your semi-realistic approach is interesting.

Don't ask why, but whenever I eat something when looking at something, it reminds me of what I ate. xD

For example, when I first watched APPLE.MOV, I was eating those chocolate whoppers and it still reminds me of them |D

xD makes sense.
Kind of like how I tend to remember things I drew related to what class I was in at the time.
Like if I look at a certain sketch I did, I'll usually remember what class I was in, and what the teacher was talking about as I drew it :XD:

Heh, I'm probably going to draw some kind of ref for wings again (I've done it in the past, but I've improved since then so I'd like to do another). Wings are really fun to draw, once you know how ^^

There is an unusually high occurrence of tongues in this picture. That's random.

So what prompted all the anatomical experimentation, anyway? Your usual stuff is pretty dang accurate as it is.

Tongues

tongues are insanely fun to draw.


Hmm... Well people in the past have bugged me about my anatomy being "off"
but I mostly just look it up for fun... yeah... studying for fun... :XD:

Tongues have inherent humor value. See: Lickitung. =P

Your pony anatomy's already a lot more realistic than most artists I've seen, simply because your style is a little more detailed and closer to actual ponies in some ways. Guess some people are really picky, though. :shrug: The only anatomical flaw I ever point out in pony art is if people make the back legs bend like a human's (i.e. they're completely missing a joint), and I'll ignore even that if the pic is supposed to be anthro or very cartoony. Everything else isn't worth getting bent out of shape over.

Studying things for the lulz? Best reason to do anything. :D

Yeah, I usually don't feel like starting crap, either. There are certain specific things I'll fight to the death over, but pony art ain't one of em. I look at ponies to get away from other, more stressful things, not to add even further stress to my life. ^^;
