Would this be able to be achieved by using any program with layers and blending options or does it need to be a vector program specifically?

you have a youtube channel?
SirCxyrtyx's avatar
Yes, although the only vector related thing I've ever posted is this:…

In the paragraph that discusses about selecting the inner and outer magic shapes, where is the paragraph discussing how you also create an outer magic shape when you discussed about the inner magic shape? I don't understand this. :(
SirCxyrtyx's avatar
The outer magic shape is the one you drew yourself: "Draw an initial magic shape. You can rough it out with the pencil tool and refine it with the pen tool, or just trace one from an MLP screenshot."

Which color should the magic be, the color of their eyes or the color of their cutie mark? Or just any color?
SirCxyrtyx's avatar
I believe it's usually the primary cutie mark color. But that's not a rule or anything.

is there any possible way to do this on MS paint?
SirCxyrtyx's avatar
No. MS Paint is a raster graphics program. If you want to make vectors, you need a vector graphics program like Illustrator. Inkscape is a great free alternative.

i learned a way to kind of make it on ms paint, but it does not look exactly like the show

This work on Illustrator CS6?
Treiale's avatar
Very helpful, thank you! Creating magic has always been a bit tricky for me, but your solution looks much easier and nicer.

is there a pony magic tutorial for SAI?
SirCxyrtyx's avatar
Not that I know of. All the tutorials in the description, as well as mine, are adaptations of :iconzutheskunk:'s technique to various vector programs. SAI is a raster program, so you'd probably use a rather different technique.

I finally got this to work, but it takes a really long time for anything that I've used blend on to render. Sometimes it freezes the program for a few seconds. It shouldn't be a memory problem; I have 16 GB of it.
Has anyone else noticed this? I'm using CS6 by the way.
SirCxyrtyx's avatar
In Options > Blend > Blend Options, you can change how smooth the blend is. The smoother the blend, the longer it takes to render. So if it's slowing you down, try making the blend less smooth while you're working on the piece, and then up the quality once you're ready to export an image.

I've just downloaded Illustrator for vectoring so I'm excited to test out what I learned from these tutorials :iconrainbowheartlaplz:

I don't want to sound like a grammar nazi, but I found a misspelling here:
