Happy Birthday Derpy by WhiteDiamondsLtd Happy Birthday Derpy by WhiteDiamondsLtd
Yay, Derpy! ^.^ Everypony's favorite wall-eyed mare. This picture was done as a slightly belated birthday present for Derpy, in response to a thread on Equestria Daily celebrating when said pony had first been spotted in an episode and christened by the fan community, and while it's not much it's the least I felt I could do for her. It's the first (and to date, the only) fanart I've done of the lovably wonky pegasus, but I'm hoping that someday soon enough I might have the occasion to make more.

Wall-eyed actually refers to when the eyes point outwards. Derpy is cross-eyed.
Either that or she has a lazy eye. :shrug:

Oh dear, I am SO incredibly sorry that I've missed this comment until now, my sincere apologies! :worry: I'm sure at this point, your friend's birthday has probably passed, but in this instance I really hope you didn't wait for a response from me and just printed it out anyway, I definitely wouldn't have minded! Thank you very much for the interest and kind sentiments, and I am quite sorry that I'm so late in responding...

dawww i love this ^^

any chance you could maybe help explain to me the outlining process? i seem to always have trouble with outlining my digital drawings :(

WhiteDiamondsLtd Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2012  Professional General Artist
Thank you very much! And hmm, I suppose I could try, though I'm not sure how much of a "process" it is that I really have, or if you could really consider it "outlining". Basically, I will sketch directly into a program (with SAI's marker tool, which gets darker the more pressure you apply and the more you go over it), and if I like a drawing enough that I decide to color it I will go over the main lines to darken and define them, cleaning up the messier sketch lines with the eraser afterward. I'll do the coloring on a layer underneath this linework layer, and usually will set the linework to "multiply" so that it tints the lines with some of the colors underneath. That's it, nothing fancy really!

i just cant freaking draw clean lines with a tablet D: and my pen skills are not that clean either :/ like look here --> [link] my lines are jittery :S

guess i just need more practice, eh? ^^;

:iconwhitediamondsltd:
WhiteDiamondsLtd Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2012  Professional General Artist
Oh, d'aww that's adorable! And well yes, maybe practice is all it is... I suppose it's difficult for me to say for sure as I've been drawing all my life, and working digitally for several years now. I certainly don't have any special techniques that I use in any case, as I've explained.

If drawing by hand isn't giving you satisfactory results, then perhaps you might try using Photoshop's pen tool. I've never really used it myself so couldn't explain to you how to work it, but you should try looking up tutorials here on deviantART.

I'm sorry, I wish I could offer you more help but I'm actually one of the least technologically-savvy people around and tend to do everything as manually as is possible in digital programs. I wish you luck with the matter though, and perhaps you might still look into checking out some lineart tutorials.

She most certainly does, and a whole giant muffin-cake is more like it! I wonder if they actually exist, but if not someone should definitely make that happen.
