A Year of Ponies by Karzahnii A Year of Ponies by Karzahnii
365 days ago, I submitted my first fan art of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic".

I would never have guessed it would bring me so far; I had less than 8K pageviews at the time, and now I have over 100K! But that's just numbers. I've met some awesome people and had a lot of fun drawing pony after pony. And I never would have guessed my art would improve so much in that one year.

So here's another drawing, in honour of the one that started it all:

As with everything, the key to improvement is practice. Lots and lots and lots of practice! :)

a real nice improvement. I've noticed many artists do this and it seems coloring and shading is always a big improvement. if i may ask any chance of you maybe doing a 3month update for a year on anything (if you already have it be great to see.) I've always wondered if folks recognize how much they improve in just a few months. if you have time you should consider it.

Your artwork has improved, not just Pony anatomy but also the use of light and shading. Here's to another year of Pony and AppleDash.

I'm not sure which one's the newer one. I'm guessing the top one.

ah, my guess has seemed to prove correct.

That is an amazing level of improvement, and it serves as a great encouragement to me. I've only been drawing ponies for... 5 months now. It'll be interesting to see what kind of improvements I've made over my first piece in the next 7 months.

I love how you can always see an artist's character in their work, regardless of skill level. It's then also, a really a beautiful thing, to be able to see how much more of your character is shining through now :)
