Subject title: Fan art?

Hey guys, so I'm actually quite new into the digital world of art-- Nah. I'm actually quite new into the world of art, period. And I've been picking it up quite fast.

Anyway I've got this, and obvi I've got my own extensive list of things wrong --as well as things right of course!-- with it.
Just, y'know, seeing what the thoughts are.

*edit* Hah. Forgot to mention that every one of these pictures is different because different small details were added in as I saved it and moved it around and stuff. I still have no real work flow.

dude, the horse is on fire! ...hm, looks more like a donkey - the back is too straight for a horse.

Haha. Yeah. That's really really bothering me. I might go redo the horse. Because I wanted a lean pony, not a fat ass.

RAPIDASH HAS A HORN, YOU INCONSIDERATE TWAT.

Not sure of this, but going by some "Last visited" data, Glitch still hasn't seen your post.

Anyways, while that outburst was certainly bizarre and appalling, i'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he just had a bad day or something. I know how bad anger or irritation can get sometimes.

Looking at your illustration, it feels like the front and back of the cavern/place are both fighting for the front role or like, that they don't feel very set on their roles. I think making the foreground a bit more defined and the background a bit more darker would help? Also, strenghtening your values might help your illustration a bit too.

I hope i'm not wrong in giving you benefit of doubt.

I had wanted to add some detail to the foreground and background, but I wasn't sure if that would subtract from the middle ground, because as far as I know, that's human sight works (you can't look at multiple depths) But I do know that for illustrative purposes that one would let all depths would have detail. Which is odd for me to think about. So, that's why I did/didn't do that. I'm experimenting with these things. 'I've got a lot to think about with this though, so thanks.

In an image, the subject is the center of attention and focal point. Focal point is sharp with hard edges while the rest would be less sharp with soft edges.

... So, uh, glitch, you're not planning on apologizing or at least explaining your outburst a bit?

Nah, didn't plan to. If I must explain how there is any bit of humor in there, I will, just to satisfy your guys' anal retentive focus on it.
So strap on your diapers and let's go.

It's not obviously a Ponyta. Most people looking at this in the perspective of pokemon fan art would think "Rapidash" because who in there right mind would fan art a boring un-evolved version of a stronger pokemon? But, alas, I prefer Ponyta over Rapidash, therefore that's what I wanted. Upon drawing a normal horse, one would find that there is little difference to be made in an real 'alternative' version. AHAH, so there it was, the one detail that made all the difference, the horn. Only really avid pokemon fans would know without looking it up that Rapidash has a horn and Ponyta doesn't, therefore, pretending that it's blatantly obvious and a huge deal that he called it Rapidash --thereby disgracing Ponyta-- gives it a touch of humor, and I like to imagine that someone somewhere in the world understood that.

Satisfied?

---Also won't be apologizing for the diapers comment.

Just as a sidenote:could you please Post small versions i am Viewing this On an iPad and i have to scroll through it which Makes it Hard to Judge the whole Composition. From first Glance i find the Color Scheme quite nice and tranquil but the horse seems totally wrong in there with regard to Lightning, anatomie and Overall composition.

I'd never drawn a horse (or donkey for that matter) before that day. I just traced a few pictures and junk before hand and tossed it in because "why not?"
Looking back, I noticed these are the versions basically without shadows for the figures -- and as far as human anatomy, hah forget it, I'm garbage at this point.. it's been my #1 concern lately.

I'm thinking I should post something that I really worked hard on and had pre-planned in here next time.

It looks quite good on my Nexus 7, but I'll keep the res in mind for sure.
