MLP - UFO by DShou MLP - UFO by DShou






Comment I made in my journals -
"Draw more side/back angles"



I'm not entirely sure how I came up with this drawing exactly tbh.

Space and Surprise, then comes UFO, *shrugs* Creativity is putting together random things, and then making it work, I suppose.



Drawing took about 4 hours from start of sketch to end of drawing, it's kind of rough 'though because I was kinda playing around, especially on the background planet, and not taking the overall drawing seriously, the anatomy works for example but at first glance it looks off. I feel like I'll need to upgrade how I draw the wings soon specifically too.

Hey y'all, this is an example of drawings I do for quick practice -

Also bit of a Touhou reference (UFO design).



My Little Pony : Friendship is Magic series belongs to Hasbro

Quite impressive, especially for a 'quick practice' picture. I'm afraid I don't get the Touhou reference, though. While I know what this game series is, I don't know much about them.

Thanks!

I suppose it's not really that big of a reference anyways (edits descript. slightly) - the UFO design/idea is from Touhou 12 : Unidentified Fantastic Object where there were these small red/green/blue UFOs appearing everywhere.

..Wow, yes, I'm thinking this is one of the best if not the best one recently actually, seriously. For quick practice this is awfully good, that background is amazing and the light is lovely and soft. You get full marks on concept, presentation, style and ability from me, even though it's not for critique. It just falls together really well.

Very nice detail on the mane and tail, but it seems to me that they got a darker shading than the skin color right next to it. I got to admit the background is amazingly nice and her eyes matches it very well. I like the concept of leaning back on a UFO cruising through space almost like it's a joy ride. Too bad you can't breathe in space, but that's why the show has magic which makes it all possible. Your back angle shot is very good, however I'm slightly a bit confused with where her front right hoof is placed. The opposite front left hoof is between her wing and head while the other has the wing inbetween the hoof and head. Sorry, I don't want to sound too picky over such a small minor detail, but to me it looks like she's trying to lay back and enjoy the excitement of a speedy ride. This is marvelously well made, and I love how the simple made saucer and pegasus are shown in a very intricate and beautiful background. Well done, very well done!

(This is why I didn't open the critiques thing, ahh I had so many mistakes that I realized I made . . !) You're right about the shading spots, taking another look I noticed a few inconsistencies 'caused by my somewhat of a rush on this drawing.

Heh, talking logic with Pinkie's spiritual ancestor lul.

Anatomy is something I caught really awkward myself, 'though that wasn't exactly what I noticed wrong (I felt every other limb was a bit off instead of her front-right hoof), her front-right hoof is her having it stretched outward to her side past the wing's cover, is how I intended it to be I mean.

Ah but I got the message across at least! Surprise having a nice ride on a saucer was pretty much the idea~ Thank you for the compliment and critique/analysis!

You're welcome. Sorry if I over did it, but I wouldn't say you did that bad. I think there's a lot to gain experiance-wise when you draw it all out without too much need for perfection. Something to do for fun. Now I think I see what you meant about the front right hoof. These back shots can be very complicated considering the back legs are hidden by the shuttle and the left front hoof might have been obscured from view by her wing, but any flaws in the anatomy isn't that noticable, especially since the picture looks very pretty and a great deal of effort had been put into it. After all the face she's making is what really catches the eye, and you did that very well.
