Drawing exercises/tips for improving your ponies
Do you want to improve drawing ponies but not know where to start? If so, then this "guide" is for you!
Over the years of learning to draw ponies, I've found some techniques for improving and have compiled them here to share with y'all.
All of these exercises can be done both digitally or traditionally. And don't worry about what kind of style you draw your ponies- it's not a matter of concern. This is all general advice that can be applied to your drawings regardless of style.
Timed Quick Sketches
This is a great exercise for artists of all skill levels. And if you're just starting out and want to get more comfortable with drawing ponies, this will do a lot of good for you. If there's any exercise I'd recommend trying out from this list, it'd be this one. It's a simple process:
1. Grab some pony references
2. Set a looping stopwatch
3. Draw the pony! When the timer beeps, move onto the next pony and repeat this

Starry dress
"What are you looking at?"

I saw a dress on Pinterest and wondered if it would look good on Nightmare. Guess it looks kinda okay

Just wanted to paint some Chrysalis

Can't believe we're reaching the last season of G4, time really flies...

I've been playing a lot of Assassin's Creed: Origins lately, and I really loved the design of the  Greek and Egyptian temples in the game.

So I thought about what ancient Equestrian architecture would be like and did a few skeches based on the designs in the game. These are not good enough to count as "deviations" but I think some of these have potential to be further developed.

Sooooo ... I'm just wondering which one looks better to you? (I like No.3 the most but it's not exactly meant to be a temple)
