Scoot's Vision by SmockHobbes Scoot's Vision by SmockHobbes
I wanted to change my style of lineart a bit, to see if I could distantiate myself some more from the show's style. I've always liked longer legs in these drawings, and all the different wings artists draw are awesome, too! That's why I tried to put down a more personal style, and this was the result. I'm quite happy with it, and hope to draw more in this way!

The idea at first was to do the colouring in the same way as my last few fluffy drawings, but others really liked the sketch, and so did I. So I chose to use the sketch, and mess around with textures and colours a bit. I quite liked the result, and I hope to draw some more this way!

If you want to know what the cutie mark is about, go ask ~Gerpie :p

Her huge amazing wings make up for the scrawny ones as a filly.

*nods* Yes! I've seen images where the artist has given Scoot some kind of disease that crippled her wings, and she ended up not being able to fly again; and others(like yours) where she was given majestic wings that allowed her to fly rings around Rainbow Dash; and yet others where her wing size stayed the same, but she was still able to fly. It's up to the artist's interpretation. :)

I do like this style even more than the style you used to have in your "few fluffy drawings".

I'm not even sure what I like anymore, heh. Been doing radically different styles lately.
But it's great to hear that you like this style, because at the moment I'm loving this one as well.

You should try out a few things with and maybe stick to it if you still like that way.
Imo sketchy looks good in general. Much more energetic.

Definitely gonna try this more, it's been on my to-do list for a while, but somehow forgot about it until I saw this sketch.
The only thing I don't really like about it is that it somehow feels like cheating to use textures like this...And I'm not sure how to make texturised stuff myself.

Face-of-Moe Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
In a way it is "cheating", yeah. You do use the atmosphere of another artist's picture and build that into your own image. But why the hell not? There've been whole art eras of only copying. Look at Andy Warhol for example.
It's officially accepted to use those textures as an upgrade to a picture that's already good. A bad picture won't look better if you'd texturise it. Using those is just a way of composition or design, like using a filter or a specific brush.
Yes, you can create your own texture designs, but why would you? There are already many of them out there free available for everyone, we don't really need more of them. And, let's be honest, you and me, we won't be able to create better ones without much time of practice.

Thanks for your comment, you made me feel a lot better about using those textures. I guess that in the end, it is indeed the same as using a brush, just that it's a bit more obvious.

I'll still be careful with using them too much though, because I'd still like my drawing to be as original as possible. As long as it adds something to the picture though, I guess it's alright ^^

Healthy way of thinking. Sun, I am proud.

My choice: Try to not use them at all. There is no problem with making use of already existing textures, but you won't get any better at designing/drawing if you use them. Every texture is an experience you never had and a chance for improvement you missed.

Hmm, not necessarily... Textures can make a nice addition as something that I would normally just skip. I just have to make sure that I don't overdo them, or I have to try to search for alternatives.
I'm not interested in making textures, so to be honest I'd rather not spend time in practicing those. I'd rather put that time in practicing lineart and maybe other styles of drawing
