The Lightbringer by Pantzar The Lightbringer by Pantzar
Littlepip, The Lightbringer, Inspiration.

Yeah, Inspiration for sure. Littlepip, My Little Pony, Fallout Equestria, KKat. All which I have to thank for inspiering me to try something new, something that I had never done before, drawing. Something that I am very thankful for, it has learned me to view the world differently, and at some point tought me to get in touch with my feelings on another level, aswell as getting to know so many new friends. You know who you are ;)

The 10th of November, on that day I've been drawing for a year. So, progress I guess. Not as much as I could have managed, but enough to make me realise that I can acctually do this. (Even if I still can't draw hair, at all.) During the progress of drawing this I came to a realisation, I took a look on my older images and saw that those where filled with emotion, a scene, something happened. My latest had no emotion, there where no real story behind the drawings. This is something that I want to change, and work on for the upcomming future. Emotion and story. For a image can look absolutely amazing, but without the story behind, it comes out lacklusting.

As for this particular drawing I tried something new, painting, it proved to be a interesting challenge where the main focus was upon what color to use and when. Guessing half the time is not really the way to go, so Id be happy for any critique I can get.

Thanks to Kkat for inspiering me, thanks to all my watchers for sticking with me, with my constantly changing style and unconsistant updates. Untill next time, have a good one.


tl;dr: been arting for a year, learned new things, critique please.


Edit: I supose adding a drawing from Nov 2011 would be appropriate:

You should practise your overglow technique. It looks like Littlepip's horn is Green.
Also, shouldn't the scar on her neck be a bit more blotchy? It did come from a magical burn, not a blade

Oj den var riktigt fin! Vad har du gjort egentligen? XD Du var borta från DA ett tag och när du väl kommer tillbaks o postar något nytt så har du förbättrat dig likt nåt otroligt! Vad är din hemlighet bakom detta? :D Är det någon slags magi som tar värka när man har ritat i ett år? Hur som helst, du har förbättrat dig, och det har du gjort under en sjukt kort tid! Kan inte säga att jag har sett många fler som har blivit så grymma på att rita under endast ett år! särskilt inte någon som inte ritat innan dess! Du värkar vara extremt snabblärd och det ska du vara glad över! Keep up the good work och grattis på ditt 1 års jubileum här på DA! Ser fram emot att se fler bilder från dig! :)

Hah, tack så mycket. Jag har jobbat på en gård I en månad eller så, utan internet eller "nymodigheter",plöja, bygga stall, etc. (building a stable door made me laugh), ingen tablet eller så. Men jag hade mycket tid att tänka på hur man borde gå till väga.

Mer är på G, tack igen. Ha det gött!

Absolutely great stuff. I probably have mentioned this before but I really like your style, especially the eyes. The outfit looks really good with all the details and I think her mane looks fantastic here :)

Also happy deviant anniversary!

Mm, there is something with the mane, especially the front part of it that just dosn't fit with the rest of the image. Can't place my finger on the exact problem though, if I could Id go and change it. Thanks though. :hug:

I agree with ~fuzzyveevee. It's incredibly impressive to think you got this good in such a short amount of time.

Even if you say you aren't good with hair, I really like her mane and tail. The boots were a really nice touch as well.

O.O

Did your skills just double on the spot? Hot damn, man! That's EASILY your best individual picture yet. The shading has taken such a leap in quality, texture too on the clothing and manes. Really love how much little 'things' from pouches to PipBuck buttons and weapon detail even to laced stitching on her boots.

Honestly, I am very impressed with this new capability over the course of one year. You might say ya found your special talent. ;)

Thank you Fuzzy, you truely knows how too make a guy feel good about himself, spotting and commenting on the smaller things that I really have been struggling with, so yeah. Thanks :hug:

Its something I love to do, finaly doing something else other then spending all my time gaming. The constant progress is something that apeals to me, and the fact that you cannot blame anyone else other then yourself if you don't improve makes it so much more enjoyable.

You echo the best thing I've told people who ask me how best to get into writing. "Enjoy it!" If you love it, you'll love all the ups, the downs, the praise, the critiques and everything else. It's fun to try and improve time over again. So I know exactly what it's like.

Can't wait to see what else you might do with all this new style now.

Love what you do and you will get better at it without even noticing. It won't even feel like a chore, suddenly you just realise that you have become better. And that feeling only adds to the love of your craft.


Yus, I have a few things lined up. Hope your wrist get better soon man.
