Group Info


:bulletpink: Welcome! Thanks for visiting! We, and LTDP are trying to help each other get better at drawing ponies; Lauren Faust's MLP: FiM ponies, that is! You can post OCs, Canon, or anything pony!

:bulletred: We do not accept humanized ponies, unless they are with another pony-pony. We also do not accept adoptables, yaoi, yuri, blood and gore, or anything that would need a mature content filter. The show is supposed to be a family cartoon! :I
In the past I have accepted those things and later removed them because I hated to decline submissions, but I'm putting my hoof down! Please don't make me decline your submission! :{

:bulletyellow: Don't be mean to the other members! MEANIES ARE NO FUN. DO NOT BOTHER, PESTER, OR ANNOY ANYONE WHEN THEY TELL YOU TO STOP.

:bulletgreen: When you post a picture, the co-founders and I will give you constructive criticism! But we will only give you criticism if you ask for it in the deviation's description, or post a comment asking for it, also linking us to the deviation. If you reminded us how harsh you want your criticism, that would be greatly appreciated. c:

:bulletblue: Submitting to the right folder is appreciated C:

:bulletpurple: Don't steal art! It has to be your own work! Remember: We are NOT expecting perfection. Don't be embarrassed to post your ponies, even if you think they're not good. Our ponies aren't perfect, and the whole point of this group is to learn and get better together!

If I ended up sounding angry up there, please don't be intimidated! I am just trying to make sure that you can have the best possible experience here at LTDP :3

We'd love to have you join and grow together! :3
and remeber, Keep On Drawing!

Let's Begin, Shall We?

:iconbigmaclaplz: :iconapplejacklaplz: :iconapplebloomlaplz:
Wellp, this club is to help people get better at drawing ponies, right?


now some of you (probably most of us, since we're still so small >w<) have tried to draw a pony, right?


Well, this is a good way to get started, whether you've never drawn a pony or not!

:bulletwhite: Hasn't tried yet D:

:bulletyellow: What i'd suggest is maybe print of a few pictures of ponies from the show.
It's hard to mess up tracing, because you're following lines that were already made! (you know where this is going) Yup! That's right! I suggest tracing ponies from the show. It'll help you get the feel for a pony, without straying to far from the original design.

:bulletorange: Once you think you traced your last line, and you're ready to move on, I would continue to use those ponies from the show, but now just as a reference. Try drawing Twilight, Dash, and any of the ponies from the show, just by looking at at the picture. Referencing is a good way to stay close to the original design, and still feel like it's your own work!

:bulletred: Once you think your getting the hang of it, and you start to find the similarity in the poses, noses, and other pony parts (heheh XD), then your ready to move on to... drawing... without a reference (I KNOW MAH TERMS) If you've practiced enough you should have a picture of how ponies look in your mind. Even the little details, because every detail will only make the pony better or worse (and both are completely natural results C: So don't worry, you can always look back at a reference) You'll see the ponies beginning to look like they're from the show, without having to look at anything!

:bulletpink: Now you shouldn't need anything to draw your ponies! That is, except hands and nevermind~ You can even start to do original poses- poses never used in the show! That's how well you should know a ponies anatomy C:


:bulletwhite: Hasn't even tried drawing a pony yet D:

:bulletgreen: I started right from referencing~ I can naturally draw what is see, don't be ashamed if you don't have that ability, it's totally normal C: As to what referencing is, i'm too lazy to write it out again, so look up thar for more info. However, what's different about my referencing is im only using one view. Im ONLY working on the profile view of ponies. Not 3/4's and not head on (STILL KNOW MAH TERMS)

:bulletblue: Again, once you feel the similarity and the patterns of how the noses, POSE (just one view), and body looks, than you move on to... not... referencing ^^ You should no longer need to look at a picture to draw your ponies!

:bulletpurple: Go back to step only now practicing a different view 3/4's, head on, behind, above, below, anything ^^ remember, theres a difference between poses and views! If this is your rank, then you have completed :bulletgreen: and :bulletblue: at least once and have gone back to master a different view. x2 means it's you second time going to complete them, and x3 means it's your third, etc. C:

:bulletpink: NOW YOURE A PRO! Once you've conquered all the views, you can try new poses, because you'll understand the anatomy of the pony! how that bends, how long this is, etc! C: You may also want to try drawing different ponies, but it's fine to draw different ponies from the start ^^


:bulletpink: is the highest rank! YOU SHOULD FEEL SO FREAKING PROUD RIGHT NOW!

I hope this helped!
and remember, Keep On Drawing!

YOU GUYS ARE ALL SO AMAZING :iconderpyclapplz: :iconrdclapplz: :iconfluttershyclapplz: :iconapplejackclapplz: :iconpinkieclapplz: :iconrarityclapplz: :icontwilightclapplz: :icontrixieclapplz: :iconoctaviaclapplz:
So i take it you all have seen the new episodes... well if you haven't no need to worry you have plenty of time to watch the new episodes.

so the task i have for you to practice doing is taking what you thought was the best, saddest or horrifying about the newest episode each week and sum it up in on piece.

This will be a weekly thing so each new episode why not draw a new piece and add a link to this blog also put if you want others to give there opinion on it.

So have fun and stay creative!

Hey, I already know how to draw ponies and such, but is it alright if I join and contribute my art to here anyway?

Sky-Sketch Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2015  Student General Artist

Zaxisa Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2015  Student Digital Artist
I'm nore into flashy, wallpaper style things now xD
I CAN draw ponies, but really, the only real participation i do in this group anymore is moderating the influx of artwork that want to be accepted xD

Question about the Gallery Folders for Members to Submit: Are the
"1st Attempts"
"Early-On Attemps" <(Yay a misspell)
"Later-On Attempts"
"Let's Practice"
folders closed from the members? I wasn't able to submit to any of them, except the Featured folder. I'm not sure if you guys would allow us to submit to them because there aren't any clues/rules/notes about what is acceptable to submit as Member or Contributor, etc.
Divine-Angel-Heroine Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks guys.
Showlover Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
do you accept drawings of ponies that also includes non-pony characters?
AquaticSun Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I don't see an issue with it, as long as there is some sort of "pony" in there. Having other characters from the show (like Spike or Discord) who are not ponies with pony characters is acceptable. ^^
