Pregnant AppleJack by xniclord789x Pregnant AppleJack by xniclord789x
This piece had so many alternatives. First, I was going to have her lean on an apple tree, but the Apple tree would take up a lot. And Hay is a much comfy place. Second, Apple Jack was going to be mostly on her back, but I realize that it's not really good for pregnancy. Third, I was going to have her look at the screen, but looking at her belly while her foals kick seem best. Fourth, again with the eyes; I had no idea what kind, but I guess I went the happy face again. Geez. Fifth, hat or not hat. I went with hat when I was just finishing it. Looks good with hat.

This one didn't took long. It turn out well. Apple Jack is an awesome pony, but not many appreciate her. I know you like all of them, but if you were going to choose one, would it be Apple Jack?

Anyways, Apple Jack is up and happy how she came out. The Father is up to you again as usual. How many is she having? I'm thinking triplets.

Adobe Photoshop CS3 and Adobe Illustrator CS3.  These programs are outdated because I can't afford for an upgrade, but it still gets the job done.

Photoshop is easier to use, and can make many edits.  Illustrator makes those strong vectors.  If I could only use one, I would choose illustrator.  I can just draw it on paper, scan it, then put it as vector though Illustrator.  I must warn you, these programs are expensive and complex.  Most would download it for free, and crack it.  And there are people who go to classes for Adobe programs, like I did.  In the end, there are tutorials online for free, so College is a waste of time, lol

There's nothing new I can tell you compared to the art tutorials on this site.  You could use references to get better detail.  To draw poses, it is where to place the circles.  That's where it starts.  Drawing a circle for each body.  I draw one for head, chest, and flank.  You can draw little circles for the elbows and knees, but it's not really necessary, which unless you want the legs to really match.  I've noticed many artists draw the bending leg longer than the leg on standing.  It really takes focus, and patience to see it through.  Drawing smooth lines around the circles, and giving detail in the end.  And if you want a perspective, you use line to point perspective, but only for background.  Stuff you learn in class.  I use programs to fix them, because drawing on paper just makes a mess.  These Adobe programs has all the tools for you.  And with Illustrator, you can really make it look like the show.  I use the pen tool, but many find it hard to use, so good luck with that.  

How I do it is sketching it on Photoshop.  I would layer each part to fix any errors later.  And when I'm satisfied with it, I transfer it to Illustrator to give that vector smoothness.  I make three layer folders for outline, color, and shadows.  And when I'm done, I transfer it back to Photoshop to render it as PNG.

Layer folders or layer sets are for huge parts of layers that you group to have on top or under another layer folder or set.  You notice the outline on my pictures are above the shadows, and the shadows are above the colors.  I would use a layer set for outlines, and one for shadows, and the other for color.  You have to make sure you make a new layer set for Illustrator when making this stuff.  Outlines come first, then color, and last, shadows to add detail, and that shadow layer set would be under the outlines, and above the colors, unless you want to shadow in the outlines, which isn't necessary.  And since I'm perfectionist, I make sure the outlines or colors aren't off, and perfectly connected.
