WIP ponygirl by blue-elem3nt WIP ponygirl by blue-elem3nt
This is the work in progress of my girlfriend's character. I have a few things to touch up, but thus far I'm happy with how it's turning out. Eventually, there will be a simple background painted into this one. Any pointers?

LAWLz! Calm down woman! You're one to talk with your fantasies of a ninja turtle! XD I kid, I kid...

But I don't consider myself a furry, I just have fun drawing them and have my whole life, but I'm pretty sure we already had this discussion about, oh, a year ago. lol!

'tis why I finally got in character design, so I can stop sucking at drawing people. Maybe then I can finally draw something HOOMAN related that doesn't totally blow.

Very few complaints with this, it's looking good, and very three-dimensional.

The hair's shading is to die for. It's very ropey, like a horse hair should be. Not silky smooth.

Her brown fur lacks the purple ambience in the shadows which makes it look very flat and murky compared to the jeans and top.

I can't work out her belly button... is it a large silver jewel? If not, it looks very clean-cut! It should sink in smoothly, else it looks like you made a hole with a drill.

Cooly! Thanks for the feedback!
I'll probably go back in and through some cooler shadows on the fur to help match the purples on the clothes, I've been feeling like I needed another layer of shadow on there as well, and maybe some more reflected light too. And I'll fix up the shading on the belly button too, can't have it looking like a hole was drilled in there, lol! XD

Thanks! Glad you like it thus far, I've been experimenting with lighting and color a little on this piece too so I'm glad to hear it's appealing. ^_^

Wow your rendering has stepped up! Like how the highlights on the hair came out and the general form around the left shoulder look great :]

I am simply in love with the shading on the tank top. Quite gorgeous flow of hair as well.
Maybe the crotch is too high/a bit small.

Thanks! I'll have to look into reworking the crotch area. In all honesty, it's been giving me some trouble. I appreciate the feedback very much!

Pretty much dead, it seems harder and harder to get things done these days and it makes me sad. I really need to try and push myself harder to do new things and just all around "exist". It does feel nice to be missed though. ^_^ Much thanks!
