Frustrated scribbles are frustrating.

I wanted to draw how I think Sweetie will look in her later years. I hit a major block at her head and just couldn't get any eyes to work for her. I originally wanted a 3/4th view of her face, but she flat out refused.

That's when I realized I've been totally inconsistent with my eyes, and they've been the weakest part of my work recently. My so far best piece (in my opinion) looked good because her eyes were CLOSED.

Just when I start to get the body down, some other body part decides to throw a wrench. All part of the learning process I guess. Maybe I should go stalk Solar-Slash. His pony stuff is like, 80% big soft eyes.

I went with the one that's closest to the show for this one, but I dunno... I'm still trying to find my own style.

Something people can look at and say "Oh yeah, Kryptchild drew that!" the first time they see it. My head is probably too far in the clouds right now, but part of why I look up to artists like Joey-Darkmeat, John Joseco, Speccy, Madmax, Jitterbug, Solar, Will, Slugbox, UC77, and Egophiliac is they're not just recognizable names, but the have recognizable art styles.

They own how they create, they're consistent... and it's my goal to graze my fingers across the bottom of the clouds they sit comfortably atop.

I really like her mane.

Actually, I did immediately recognize this as yours. Probably because of the mane, lol. As for the eyes, my vote goes for number 5 or number 2, in that order.

But yeah, you do have a recognizable style, in my opinion anyway. And I like it. Keep at it! :)

Not bad! If you learned from this exercise, all the better. My advice? Don't go seeking a style -- style will find you. Keep moving forward and developing your skill; you've got talent!

Also I'll work on a sketch using 2 and 5 later tonight, see where it takes me. Thanks for the input!

"Style will find you"... I like that. I'll keep experimenting, keep drawing, and let it come to me as I grow. Thank you, Rosewind~

I like the second eyes, but maybe thats cause they're very close to the show eyes. Style is usually what an artist does when they find a way to work they enjoy. If you try to force a style, you might end up being unhappy with your work, and thats no fun unless you're being paid.

On the bright side, I was able to tell that this was an adult Sweetie Belle just from the thumbnail. :)
