Ponies.

As you might have spotted in my Lyra Heartstrings post, I'm re-learning to draw. What does that mean?
Over the last many years, I have learned to draw by looking at things and drawing them. I saw lines and made them happen on paper. Sometimes the lines were in my head. However, this isn't particularly good when it comes to actually understanding the things I'm drawing.
And so, I'm learning things like how things exist in Euclidean space and how to make that look good on paper. I'm learning about undersketches, and that weird shapey thing that artists do when they block out their drawing beforehand.
It will definitely level up my art in a long-term kind of way.

Speaking of ponies, I'm going to draw ponies. A lot. In fact, I'm going to draw 100 of them. They say you have 100 bad drawing in you, so you'd best just draw and get them out of your system so you can be a better artist. Well, I've already arted a lot, but since I'm learning again, I thought I'd do it once more.
I'm not going to post all 100 up to DeviantART. That would be a little overboard. Only the ones I really like. Lyra was #4. You should see #1. That was painfully awful. But if you're interested in seeing all 100, + every other sketch/drawing/art I do, check out my...

Patreon. Did you see that fantastic transition between topics? I did. It was smooth.
I now have a Patreon page! Check it out at www.patreon.com/vixie
Basically, I figured if I'm going to be more active with the whole arting and writing and things (Exams permitting), I could maybe try to fund things like living so I can spend more time making content like drawing, writing and doing other things I enjoy that other people also seem to enjoy when I do, and less time stressing about money/freelancing/working/etc. Did I words that properly? Probably not.
It'll also help fund me towards studying Linguistics at Cambridge university, which is something I really really want to do.
So go check it out. Woo woo!

Once I'm done with my many pony drawing (Though possibly in between), I'm going to be doing some other stuff. Fear not, fine watchery folk. You shan't be spammed with a thousand ponies. There will be other things too!

In conclusion...
I like ponies! They're comfy and easy to wear!

I didn't expect to be inking/colouring her, and I definitely didn't expect to be proud enough of her to upload her to DeviantART! I imagine this is how she feels when she accepts the fact that she'll never be human.

It's increasingly bizarre because I know where I went wrong a lot but I can't fix it because it's not digital. Oh, woe is me.

I decided to re-learn how to draw ponies. In fact, how to draw in general. Previously I learned to draw by seeing lines and making them happen on paper. Sometimes the lines were in my head. This was all fine and good, but I must say, it's no good for different poses and understanding how things work in Euclidean space.
Now, however, I'm learning all about underdrawings, sketching, doing that shapey-thing that artists do, and all sorts! Thankfully I have a bit of a headstart in that my hands actually know how to draw.

Hang on, if this is Pony #4 then where are 1-3? Alas, not postable here. They were crude sketches and not worth showing. And why am I numbering them in the first place?
Well, in light of my re-learning how to draw, I'm going to draw 100 ponies. This is #4, and I didn't expect it to be going so well.

I've started up a Patreon page! Check it out at www.patreon.com/vixie

If you want to see ponies 1-3 and all 100 as they're created, as well as every sketch or bit of art I do, heck out my Patreon
