Meet Mercury Star
« on: January 16, 2012, 08:37:50 AM »
I haven't done a whole lot of pony drawing in the last few years, and when I did, it wasn't for me.   Every time I would sit down in an attempt to draw anything for myself, I would get frustrated and toss it.   Well, I have been wanting to draw a picture of my "new" (several-years-old-now sort of new) ponysona, Mercury.

Whelp, today in a fit of... uh... I don't know, something?   I managed to draw a decent enough looking pony, and got him all colored up.   YAY!

He doesn't look too thrilled to be put on display.   :yikes:

It's all I do... I have a tablet and I tried drawing a picture, but I never got very far.   I can color other people's art with the art program, but when it comes to my own I end up going traditional.   Major problem with me and traditional is how much paper I go through.

You sound just like me - I have a tablet, but despise it, HATE colouring my own work with it, I love coloured pencils tho. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be the demand for traditional artwork anymore, most people are happy with a computer image, I am not too fussed on that myself, I like something I can touch if that makes any sense :P

Its gorgeous work anyhow, I would love to see more of your artwork ^^

Oh yes, it makes perfect sense! 

I hope to get more art done to post, but there is no telling with me.   Maybe I should pull out some stuff I never finished from years ago and rework it. XD

lol yeah I know what you are saying, I have a pic I have been trying to work on for a while, its a portrait from a photograph, and although what I have done looks amazing, I have to be in the mood to sit & do it, and I really just want to get it finished, its frustrating that I can't just push myself :/

I got my Christmas Card image from about 2 (?) years ago finished just in time for this past Christmas (actually redid some stuff on it, but it is still basically the same image), and was going to use it for my X-mas cards... but my printer decided to be a pill about printing the whole image.  :(

A decent looking...? Gorgeous, more like! I love the way you drew his legs, the hind legs in particular. He looks very regal somehow. And the gradient hair is stunning!

Thank you very much, Griffin and Lina!

I love the way you drew his legs, the hind legs in particular.

Haha, his hind legs drove me bonkers when I was sketching out the pose, particularly the near one.   


Doh, I just realized in my haste to get him finished I forgot something... oh well, it wasn't important, anyway! XD
