I get a lot of requests asking for a tutorial or guide or walkthrough or whatever of how I draw things. So now Iíve finally got around to making it. Iím not guaranteeing anything from this other than revealing the specific techniques I use to draw what I draw. I might get around to making another guide thatís less technical and focuses more on composition, proportion, that stuff.
- Download - for Photoshop - Contains 3 brushes. That's it, that's all I ever needed. - must have a graphic tablet for brushes to work efficiently - Resize your brushes to suit your needs
To install: In Photoshop, with the brush tool selected, right click on your canvas. A Tab will pop up. On that tab, click on the sideways arrow icon on the right side. In that menu, select "replace brushes...". Find the file on your computer and tada! You got the most simple brush set in the world
Update: Jan 2, 2013: Changed name of series for 'marketability' reasons and added a few more tidbits. Dec 2 2012: Expanded on ponies resembling wolves, and went deeper into explaining the slant-face problem with FiM-style. Nov 17 2012: clarified some points.
Was originally gonna write what I know so far about the entire head which includes the eyes, but it seems that would make this tutorial HUGE. I thought I would just cut this down to just talk about the nose which seems to me as one of the more defining characteristics to somebody's pony style.
If there are stupid errors, bad phrasing, or anything else which makes these notes less awesome, don't be afraid to point it out.
Also check out what I've written for ...the eyes: [link] ...the legs: [link] ...the ears, tail, and the core: [link] ...neoteny & acceleration: [link] (Parts of this one is practically nose part 2)
