This is my submission for the DA Artist Training Group’s week 7 bonus theme: muzzle drawn ponies. Or to clarify, ponies drawn entirely with one’s mouth.
I used a 2H with a sandwich bag wrapped around it because I had nothing else. Ended up going through a decent wad of paper towel too. I’m pretty sure I drooled on Twilight at least five times.
Anyway, this was really tough to start with, but helped bring me back to some basic artist rules I’ve been cheating around, such as keeping one’s pencil on the paper for a continuous line instead of a whole bunch of small, rough strokes. Things got a lot easier once I figured out to actually think a bit like a pony and treat my balled hands like hooves to rest my chin on to brace it. As can be seen, I actually did some decently intricate stuff that way. Oh and for kicks, I signed it as though my ponysona had muzzle drawn it herself.
