I Keep Looking Over My Shoulder... by chibiBiscuit I Keep Looking Over My Shoulder... by chibiBiscuit
... and You're Always There Beside Me.

Hey there folks! So, just recently, my favorite pony artist :iconcelebi-yoshi: put up a great tutorial on how she handles shading... I know not all of my followers are equine enthusiasts, but regardless, there are some really handy ideas in there, and while I didn't make this picture expressly to test some of it out, that's kind of how it ended up. I was seriously inspired by her commission, and I will admit that I borrowed a few parts of the way she drew Tea Biscuit (what I've been calling Takai's ponysona) that I thought really loved. The hair was still a challenge... And honestly, I picked the simplest pose I could have possibly picked, with no fancy angles or anything at all... But I'm pretty happy with it, for such a simple drawing! I hope you all like it! :D

For anyone who wants to check it out, here's the tutorial:



Also, if anyone wants to see a cleaner, untextured version with no background, that can be found here.

I take it your cutey mark refers to your putting-lines-on-paper-ing and Takai's cutey mark refers to her being big in both body and heart?

Yes! My Cutie mark has to do with drawing straight lines! It has nothing to do with the fact that I'm short enough to be measured by one! XD

And you're close on Takai's mark - it signifies her love of little things. ^_^

Really cute artwork, however, the purple one's legs are simply too long. It doesnt really work with her short compact body. It makes her look kinda funny.

Thank you! I know her legs are pretty long, but her proportions have always been a little beyond belief. :)

I see, ok, it just looked a bit off with the proportions. I myself have put long legs on my ponysona, but still worked it in with her body. So instead of just making the legs longer, I made the entire pony larger.

I see, and that makes sense - it was a deliberate design decision here though, so while I see your point of view, I have to say, that's just the way she is. ^_^

Nothing wrong with that, but it just looks awkward here.

She's the artist's wife, and that'd be her ponysona in the picture. ^_^

Even for a simple (in comparison to your other works) drawing, this is very well done and well colored. And I love the pony forms of you two.~

Thank you very much. :) I know it's pretty simple. I took all the complexity out of the pose and angles so I could focus on the shading for this one.

Thanks so much! Yeah, I would definitely recommend the tutorial. It was hugely helpful, and I'm hoping that the next time I try shading like that I'll have even better success. :D

Yeah, she was getting a little too far into 'giraffe' range. ^_^ When Takai says 'too much', it's probably too much.
