i really hate her mane by Lopoddity i really hate her mane by Lopoddity
Often, I find myself wondering just how much I could accomplish in life if I stopped drawing ponies all the time. This cognitive dissonance is usually remedied by drawing more ponies.

anyway, yeah. Celestia. JESUS FUCK that mane is complicated. I asked myself why I had never attempted a digital I know why. DAT MANE. And does anyone have any tips for doing digital lineart? It's always given me trouble.:(

This is a bit of practice/promo art for my upcoming askblog, in which Luna and Celestia will respond to viewer questions with illustrated story arcs. It'll have comedy! Drama! Plot elements of the show explained! Copious amounts of feels! And pretty pony princesses!
Yeah, yeah, I know there are plenty of royal sisters askblogs, but I have yet to find one that I myself really liked. More promo art later.;)

Edit: Don't ask me where her cutie mark is. I'll knife you.>:I

her mane is really offo!not your drawing, the mane in the series.
:XD:You only hate her mane because the outlines are slightly crooked! And as far as tips go, I'm sure there's a YT video or two that can help you.  Try finding one on how to vector.

The outlines are crooked, and I still struggle with digital inking-damn the wobbly lines! But as for vectoring, no, I know how to do that pretty competently by now, i think. Her tail is also way too dang long, now that I think about it

Also, I understand that you're teasing, but your comment could be taken as rude by another artist. Critique is good, but your phrasing is a bit condescending.
So beautiful!

I've for a long time wondered why people called her Tia. And for that long time and that specific area, i was going from an egghead to an dickhead.

It's obvious cause she ends with Tia.

PS. *Edit: Don't ask me where her _____ ____ is, I'll knife you.*
Okay... Where's her C-mark then? Yo?
