Havoc wrote:So Blord, this is the final design? I like it, I like it a lot. My only suggestions here would be to make it slightly more "asymmetrical". But other than that it's perfect. I think it's good to go. I take it you decided not to give her an eye patch. I think you should have, yet at the same time, she looks just as good with both eyes.

That would be the implication, yes.

Hands are probably the thing I have the most difficultly with when it comes to drawing so I spent a lot of time understanding the hand, its movement, and working on some of its interesting shapes. also experimented with shading here and there. I was using my big notebook (11x14) so it didn't fit well on the scanner and I used a camera to get this instead. Because of that, the shading doesn't come out the greatest.
I think I've gotten better at doing hands, looking from left to right. I've been working at arms, but I really miss drawing people. So I might forget the program I had established and jump straight into drawing the figure.
I've been practicing with heads and hair, and faces lately in my sketch book, and lets just say that things took a back seat in the suck department. Everything was really flat, unappealing, and no matter what I did with shading, it still looked like Naurto's face that had been slammed into a brick wall. I had huge jaws or massive foreheads, hair looked weird, smiles and mouths were not cooperating. Don't even get me started on ears. You'll see more when I upload those sketches, especially the top six.
So I was kinda frustrated and decided to adjust the way that I draw heads. I've experimented a lot with this, there are some styles where you draw a simple circle and attach a jaw, or you make an oval structure and then sketch portions of the face out - like you are carving something from stone. I use to do it that way. Then I was starting with the jaw or the top of the head and forcing the head to take a final form. worked sometimes, but it was frustrating at times. The new style I tried was taking a circle, using it has the upper portion of the head, and I would sketch the head around the circle, using it as a guide of sorts.
That's when I got this.
The face came out hundreds of times better than the other ones, and I was extremely please. The only problem was that the book I was using had such a plain and dull hair style on the girl for three-quarter shots. I wanted to give such a remarkable head a bit of flair. So I did, and I made Rarity.
Rarity's hair in this is a mix between the mane style that she had as a pony, her EQG hairstyle, and a few fun things I wanted to put in, such as the additional curl on our left. I took a picture of it using my Samsung Note Tablet, traced it with the drawing program I had on there, and uploaded it to here. I might go back at some point and do a colored version of this. I have it saved on my tablet just in case, but I also want to finish sketching heads so I can move onto bodies.

For hair, you'd want to try more flowing lines. It looks a bit plastic and hard. Also maybe heighten the hairline.

Good to see you back at it. Keep it up!

the expressions are really nice, though, which is usually very difficult
good job, nice stuff blordy! c:
