The final trix by AssasinMonkey
The final trix
New addition for my Season 6 Episode Art!
Season 6, Episode 6: No Second Prances
For more info on my episode art: MLP:FIM Season 5 Episode Art Streams

This episode was pretty great... and powerful.
The dynamic with Trixie's facade worked quite well, hah. Brought some interesting back-n-forth moments, wrong things being said at the wrong time, her being a bit misunderstood, at times revealing a bit of her softer nature underneath. I suppose since she is a show pony, she's used to hiding a lot from the public.

There seemed to be a slight dark tone, though, when she threw everything away in the Manticore once she lost here friend! Well, not necessarily have to read into it like that, but it's possible to do so heh. Then there was Twilight forcing stuff haha, and the fun little addition that was Celestia :XD:

All in all, quite the joy to watch.

As for my art, decided to make this new specimen of Manticore! With bushy eyebrows and horns this time around! Feels like I went with a simpler, rougher, quicker art style again... Not sure if just lazy, or avoiding additional work (composition changed), or something... I suppose the focus was the dynamic of the composition, as opposed to a refined character. But I still feel like I could've cleaned it up more here and there, or at least something... Either way, as long as the result is enjoyed right?

Anyhow, hope y'all enjoyed the episode, and the third appearance of the great and powerful! We may just see her even more now, hehe.

Stream OFFLINE


Quicknotes:

  • New episode again! You know what that means?! Watching an episode and derping on trying to make art for it, but it must all be finished in this session.

  • Everfree Northwest is coming up quite soon already, in 2 weeks. My last stream will be next Saturday, though, since I'll be leaving at the 10th already.

  • Since I'll be leaving in bit over a week, I'll have to do a lot of preparations this week already. This may mean I gotta cancel some midweek streams again, unfortunately. We'll see how things go, I might have some time for casual art streams.

  • I got a new phone! Galaxy Note 4, with the fancy S-Pen and everything, with Wacom tech. So now I can actually do stuff with my phone, and on top of that, draw with it! Will be fun when travelling.

  • Up time this time : 1830 UTC - 0530 UTC


MLP:FIM Episode Art
Season 6 has started! This means episode art again every Saturday Stream (except during Cons, then it's midweek stream)

Maybe some streams, maybe more con prep instead.

I made a poll! I'll try to reply to all comments here. So many already, though! I didn't really expect that. But it is a fun topic I'd say.

Little Apples Applejack by AssasinMonkey
Little Apples Applejack
Just a little random Applejack.
Not so randomly chosen to be Applejack I guess...

Kinda sad I didn't keep the initial face, because that would've shown the bit of struggle to make this "cute". Working in different proportions than usual, experimental, figuring stuff out, which I do find quite enjoyable. As I've shown through making quite a few different Applejacks over the years, heh.

Anyohow, here's a little combo I don't think I've really done before. Then again, there's a lot of combinations of size, shape, face, hooves, hands, and what not, that you can make. That's part of the fun right?!

Anyhow, Apples. For those wondering, the outfit is one from the EQG Friendship Games movie, during the party. There's several outfits from that movie I still want to make. I often default to her casual outfit or the one from the 'Friendship through the ages'.

I have a question I've been dying to ask someone for some time: what do you do your artwork on? Almost everything I do I draw on paper and then I have to take a picture and the process is annoying so I was just wondering how people do it without having to take pictures

I do everything purely digital, I have a Wacom Intuos 4 Large, and paint in Photoshop CC. Of course there's also a decent PC to hook it all up to, but that's roughly all I need.

Hello!

A long time follower here and I just got a tablet weeks ago. 

I like your painting and your step by step tutorial, but it seems that I keep getting back to drawing like a cell shade or a flat line style instead a painting.

What I want to ask is there any a beginner do for the first painting? To learn how to paint in general?

Thanks in advance.

Hey, sorry slightly delayed reply.

When it comes to painting, shaded and the like, a way to approach it is to divide it up into the different elements that make it. Light, perspective, shape, materials, and such.

So for example, if you're new to it, starting out, just doing basic shapes in greyscale can be a great way to get an idea and (3 dimensional) insight on things you paint. Even just greyscale of basic shapes like boxes, cylinders, pyramids, cones, etc. can involve quite a few big elements. How light works, how it bounces around (different strengths of light, positions, amount, etc.) how it visually creates the shape, and makes you perceive the different dimensions, where perspective plays a role, or the position of the "camera/eye"

You can build it up further and further from there, adding textures, different materials, some shiny, some matte, some skin or scaly perhaps, cloth even?! Who knows, go wild with it, whatever interests you, try it out and have fun! It's a good way to keep painting stuff while also still learning useful stuff and practising, making little things and aspects you enjoy. You could also add colour, random shapes, different angles, curves. Eventually you'll get more and more used to it, the combinations of light position, brightness, shapes, perspective, colour, material, relations between everything and more, you'll be able to create new stuff easier and easier.

Also, with basic shapes, it'd fall into still lifes, and you could make a setup yourself at home. Taking a big sheet of paper, or table white table cloth, a desk light or similar (or any light really, depends on what you want to practice at that moment), then some basic shapes. White would be easiest, best, biggest range of light and shadow, as it reflects almost all light. You could craft them out of paper, or buy some in stores, or even cut them out of a material like, foam or something. Or all of the above haha.

Anyhow, yea, so even just something seemingly "basic" like that, can have a lot of depth to it, and may be an easier way to break down some of the things I apply to all my paintings. Trying to understand shapes, light, perspective, and more.

Hope this helps a bit!

Hmm so basically paint a simple and basic things first and then step it up until  I can accumulate that basic and simple things into large painting, right?
Got it.

Assasin, I re-submitted my critiques of a couple of your pieces from Season 5 that you never accepted, so please take a look and accept them as soon as you're able to.

Thanks.
