Rob Stallion - My First Attempt by DestinyDecade Rob Stallion - My First Attempt by DestinyDecade
WARNING: This is my first shot at doing him. If you want to criticize, feel free to do so. I will have critiques open.

I got my hands on Colors 3D and I thought, why not. I may as well give it a shot. So I drew my OC Pony, Rob Stallion. It isn't that great but hey, at least I'm trying. If anyone can help give me tips on improvement, please feel free to do so. I will do some traditional art when I have free time so in the meantime, enjoy.

Well, to be honest...IT LOOKS LIKE SHIT
Nah just kidding! For your first attempt EVER it looke pretty good. But still...
I'd suggest you to draw the black outlines a bit thinner, drawing them that thick wouldn't be as appealing as drawing them thinner
Another issue here is that you nee to learn to position the fore legs, they look a bit closer to the center of the body, try putting them a bit more to the left, and the hind legs look ok
Also, if you're planning to draw with flat colors, I'd suggest you to redefine the outlines. For example, if you have a thick line, make the edges thinner, rather than having all the lines with the same thickness
Don't get me wrong, it still looks awesome for your first attempt, and I'm sure that eventually you'll start to get better and better. If I offended you with something sorry, I didn't mean that
One last thing, if you want to make you drawings look 20% cooler I suggest you to use Cell Shading

See ya!

WOAH!!! This is amazing for a first try!
I will say the black outlines are a tiny bit to thick, but still it is very very good!:heart: You did very good on the leg shading and the eyes, you added light in the perfect places :3
the cutie mark looks really good as well.
The mane and tail looks good, I like the dark blue streak through the tail..
The back leg looks good :3

I really don't know what to say it's so good :hug:

You did a very amazing job for a first try! I hope you draw more. :hug:
Anyhowl, have a good weekend :)

It's very good for a first try! ^^ Unlike silly me, i forgot to remove sketch marks ^^" =>[link]
I guess you drew this with a mouse, yes?
A tip i have is that when drawing with a mouse (i've also drawn with a mouse :L) is that try to not hold the mouse too tightly and when drawing, rest your elbow on the table and keep it in a comfortable position then when drawing, try not to move your wrist but move the mouse by extending your arm. (keep your wrist on the table at all times), Using this technique will make your curves smoother.

If you drew it using a tablet, i reckon the lines need to be thinner [i don't use tablets so i have no idea ^^"]

Doesn't he normally have a scar on that eye or did you want to do it without the scar in this one?

I want to add the scar on his eye but I seem to have forgotten. At least this is a test and I think it works.

Not too shabby. You might want to get rid of the white specks at the left side of his eye so then it looks cleaner.
