Wayell Howdeh by pocketbee Wayell Howdeh by pocketbee
I've been looking at animation blogs full of concept art and character design in this coloring style...then I saw how well ~hyamei and *nicholaskole pull it off and I was inspired to try. I doodle western animation designs a lot but...I'm way too meticulous to do this "simple" coloring style :dead: Like, people that do it well make it look so effortless and quick, and it comes out beautifully. It seems like they can just make perfect strokes in one try ;_;

I have to draw everything out and spend way too long making the shaded shapes (like in her hair) just right. I hate it lol. I spend waaaaay longer on art than I should. At a brief art school portfolio review they said I was too meticulous and tight on detail and I need to be "looser", and I agree. I hope one day I'll be able to leave detail alone so I can get better at this animation style, cuz I love it a lot :lol:

Overall I didn't spend TOO much more time than needed on Applejack. Her right arm is weird though. I draw human ponies when I just wanna do a "quick" filler picture because I don't want to spend time making my own characters lol;

I plan on it. I've had all the designs in my mind for a while; I'll eventually find the time to draw them down :)
