Art critique and advice; beginner artists are welcome to post here; includes an oekaki. (NO FLAMES)

Artists, read before posting!

Before you post your art to ask for critique, please read these tutorials. They explain the basic principles of drawing and figure drawing. Most posts where these basics are missing will never get a response, as people are quite frankly sick and bored of explaining over and over that you would have to pretty much learn how to draw first, before you could improve.

And for those of you who want it a bit easier, we also have the whole thing as one neat rar with all three books in pdf form.

I started this last year. Due other projects, I never finished it. Should I even bother?

What's there to finish about it?

well, when I started it, I had the idea that there was going to be a ton of characters in that scene, twilight and DJ-pon in the foreground, big mac in the background protecting applebloom who's on the ground hurt. Rarity being turned to stone by a cockatrice. with the entirety of ponyville in chaos. The idea was that whatever was in everfree forest invades ponyville. There was also going to be an Ursa Major wrapped around the town hall while swatting at rainbow dash. Basically a very intricuit scene with a lot of elements. I started thinking that maybe that's a bit too busy for one picture. But as I stated above, I got sidetracked by another project and never came back to this.

DJ Pon3 doesn't look bad, but Twilights look is just... not right. Used 3D modeling or Photoshop? (hard to tell lol)

>>1533 Go for it, but fix Twilight first.

DJ Pon3 does not have red eyes. Has same colour as Rainbow Dash.
I think DJ Pon3 would actually wear cyber-goggles rather than those. Seems a style of sunglasses Rarity would wear. Twilights neck looks off.

I like the style,I think Twilight though should show just a little bit of tooth. It may look less cute,but would seem like she is actually gripping the sword.

Your hair is amazing. How'd you make that?

i like it so far, the tooth, idk, maybe a bit of it, as for the rest... mmh, i'll like to see the bg to see how it goes!

This is amazing! the eyes are gorgeous. I see no issue with the twilight sparkle.
