Just turned 21 today . I still look and sound like a 16 year old though. Fuck. Anyways, I thought I should make a journal to give an update on the future of my deviations and whether or not I'm still not dead. The answer to the latter question, no I'm not dead yet.
Anyways, I have been doing some improvements on my art style and I am planning on changing some of my old habits. One thing I realized I was doing incorrectly was that I was limiting my ponies' facial structure to a circle like the show's style, but it never feels right to me. I'm trying to experiment with the way I draw ponies so they have more identifiable features that sets them apart from a generic pony. Nothing too extreme, but I'm especially focusing on facial structure, which is usually my biggest obstacle when it comes to drawing. It's still a work in progress. I'm also trying to experiment with shading and coloring styles, because I'm a bit tired of seeing flat colors.
Also, you may have noticed, but recently I've been drawing less ponies than usual, but there's a reason for that. I've been struggling with anatomy in general, and I feel somewhat trapped if I draw just ponies. That being said, I am not going to limit myself to ponies, so expect to see art for more than just that. I'm not going to stop drawing ponies, but I will draw other things as well. Some of these include fanart of other games like Super Smash Bros, but I'm especially planning on a project of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon related drawings. To those who don't know, PMD is a game where your character wakes up as a Pokemon with amnesia (minus the fact that you know you were a human and that you had a name). The game I'm planning on making a series of pictures for is PMD Explorers of Sky. What I want to do is to try to draw my character's and partner's experiences throughout the game. I personally loved the concept and the story of the game, as well as the characters and the feels it brings. The only struggle I will have with the number of pics I got planned. I might weed out some of the picture ideas, but I written down all the ideas for future pics in this series and I got 28 picture ideas... I still really want to get them all out though. The very last one in the series is the reason I want to draw these pictures, so I think I'll have something to look forward to. Here's a sneak preview of what I got so far. My character's a Riolu and my partner's a Pikachu btw. I hope people will like the series as well as other future pics I decide to draw c:
