The sketches quick that where drawn the last livestream.

Todays Acepony update was suposed to have them both running each way back and forth, but because of gif size issues I could only make them run one way. But can’t waste the other side of them I drew.
So panic dance time!

Some “high quality art” I know you all follow my blog for :P

Rather than assume, I think I'm going to actually ask: are you an ace? You know what they say about assuming.

Short answer: yes, yes I’m.

So I was bored so I went and consumed the souls from some artists to do quick doodles in there styles. Can you guess them all?

Ok I like this one a lot too. Aurora is part of ask-acepony and actually has some history with quest so this is just too cute. Luce, their kid, is in an ironic twist of fate, a dude haha. He’s actually a model and v. high fashion. Thanks for the ask marvel horse >w

Pfff… Does everypony on my blog have magical babies with Quest? If you ever do this again we need a QuestXBee child to make it complete :P

People finally decided to send in more asks and I got a good giggle out of this one! Ace and Quest both have a, er, fondness for cake, so what better than to make their daughter a baker! I think she takes more after her other mother. Hehe. What’d you say ask-acepony?

Aces striped mane and love for dorky shirts together with Quests hoofs and love for eyeliner. She is perfect *w*

Halloweening up the Acepony icon for this month :D

A short time in quests past. Had to sketch this after taking to thedragenda about her trans character aurora and quest knowing each other in the past. Sorry for the hideous quality of every part of this

Hmm… Never made a tutorial before, but I can try.

I use photoshop elements 8 to draw (because I’m cheap like that). I start by making a 800px*800px picture.

First I make a rough sketch. It contains rough poses of the characters, outlines of the background if I have any and rough first cut of the text.image

If the poses are complicated or I’m not used to drawing the characters I draw a secound much cleaner sketch over the old one.

image

Then I line it all in one layer using a 9px thick basic brush.image

Then add some color on a layer under the lineart layer.

image

Then I color the lines with the help of using the “Lock transparent pixels” button. If you don’t know if you have the button or where it is located on your drawing program google it. It is usualy around the area where you got your layers.

image

Then I add effects like magic or sparkles on a layer over it.image

Then If I have one I draw the background. I use a brush named “Rough Round Bristle” as it let me draw rough quick backgrounds (I update Acepony daily after all). imageThen last I add the text. I use the font “Anime Ace”. The text color I use is the color of the pony speaking. Removing the need for text bubbles. I also outline the text in thick black lines. Making it clear and readable on any background.imageI hope this answered your question.  ^w^
