I will call it "art"
« on: November 09, 2014, 12:49:28 AM »
The thing is that I’m not a very good artist (or I’m not an artist at all :P) but that didn't stop me to learn how to graphic design and stuff... still, if you feel like these things are junk I totally respect that, so don't hesitate in telling me (other times I really surprised myself and everyone else).

Most of this pictures were created out of sheer boredom, but I felt really inspired while doing the others.

Let’s see what you think about them :) (I'll put them on spoilers because there is a relevant number of images (not that many, but still)).

This was a gift for an ex-friend.

Another friend helped me with this one. I really like it.

I don’t know what happened here, but I really liked the -unexpected- results.

Another really moody image. When I wasn't thinking that much about my designs, the results would be some of the best I have ever made.

Another gift. Nothing really special here, let’s move on.

Spoiler: ShowHide


No, I have no idea what happened here.

But I really love these two.

And this one is often considered the best I have ever made. That was a really horrible night, so I needed to get my head off of things.

Those pictures are pretty good, I think. :) How long have you been creating art?

Thanks man, I didn't see your post for some reason. Very glad you like them :)

I guess that four years now (or at least that is how old my DA account was). MMm, maybe two years if we count actual effort.

Does that include learning how to draw?

Yes, I studied that. But as you can see, I'm much better with the digital tools. Is that a problem?

No. Should it be?

I guess not. But anyway, once again I thank you for taking the time to see all the images and letting me know what you thought about them.

Interesting mix of computer art. :)  I was afraid I was going to see all ponies when I clicked that first one to show up.   How long did it take you to make these drawings?

Trust me, there were a LOT of ponies before. Hopefully, that is ancient history for me :D

Mmm, I guess that the average time is 5-6 hours for each one. Some are nothing more than finding and calibrating the right effects, but others need me to fix problems with a digital pencil (and with a mouse that takes some time).
