I mean yes there are some amazing artists out there. But sometimes EQD posts some low quality art. Now if the artist is new then hey I can’t really say shit about them. We all start new. But sometimes there’s just random low quality art or stuff that is clearly saucy and not hidden. It just feels lazy. Especially considering sometimes in Drawfriends there’s repeats of certain artwork in the list.

im sorry about the last confession,I have gotten plenty of hate because of im sorry now here is a better confession which i hope will lighten it up a little underrated artists now i love looking and seeing improvement its pretty cool seeing them evolve like pokemon on their first steps to see who they are now and look back at their work. I would like to show the community some underated artists i know
askthemodsoflsd ( mostly mod blog) -Now this is a dear friend of mine we been friends for 2 years and we helped eachother out her art is stunning even if she doesnt post much she only uses a mouse which is amazing for all of her work she never gave up.i feel like she deserves more love
getchanoodlewet-Now this artist is something to look at the stunning traditional art with brown kraft paper and colored pencils! no joke this artist proves that you can make art out of the simplest of tools i know that they got promoted multiple times but i still feel that they should have more than they have right now A very kind person to talk too also!
askprincessviolettaviolets-Now i promoted this blog before many times and i dedicated my pateron into seeing her and taking her to bronycon…she is from the Philippines and with a whooping 12 hour difference where i am her art style is adorable and not even having a scanner she does amazing works on what she has.
gracie-birdz-Now oh this Artist! Way too underrated Gracie is a awesome artist who has improved a lot,not too much focused on the pony department but there is some there and its adorable. I love the professionalism in some of their work also
all these artists have a special style took lots of time and effort and has came a long way some i been watching since they first made a tumblr and started to post their works i just wish that artists like these can get more attention in the community we need to give people like these lots of love instead of supporting the popular people its nice to support what they do but take a chance and get out of there you can find some hidden gems in the art community

I cannot stress how important a reblog is. Likes are swell and all but simply liking something is not going to help the artist’s audience grow. Liking it but not reblogging it seems like a way of saying you kind of like it but it’s not good enough to reblog. I know this may not be the case for many, but for an artist who struggles with having confidence in their abilities a reblog can go a long way to making them feel like they truly are improving. Reblogging art is like “HEY This is so cool I have to share it”. Simply liking it is like keeping it to yourself instead of sharing the experience with someone who could possibly enjoy it too. Not to mention that some artists count on commissions to make a living. If their audience is not growing they may not be getting the commissions they desperately need because they have not reached new potential customers. If you reblog art you’re really helping the artist grow and, in some cases, survive.

They are art, yes, but we don’t allow them here. It states this on the submit page.
Apologies, I will agree these confessions haven’t been the best, sadly I don’t realise it until the anon hate and drama reblogs starts coming in, but to tell the truth we have barely been getting any confessions lately, I know you will say that is not an excuse. Also the pressure this blog gives me with 5k followers ready to call out just one mistake is overwhelming. Now that Melody is making a come back I will be able to get a second opinion and future confessions will be more appropriate for your’s and other’s taste.
Now don’t start sending me death threats but this is well true both tend to copy the shows style and get so much praise.Why not someone who has a original style and makes stunning paintings? nah lets just copy a style and get way too much fans.I used to be a fan of pixelkitties because i thought it was kinda cute i looked back on her old work and looking like where was this boom? this boom of popularity from her to the show staff to just about every Pony fan from one of the last confessions i heard about her was the tracing i highly believe that but she admits using “flash puppets” now i don’t like them very much reason being that its kinda lazy unless you don’t make your own and do your own work but hers looks like the shows..exactly..if it was vectoring well there’s a great chunk of them who can do about the same level of pixel kitties and gets little to no praise.
Now draw ponies well i heard about the guy from ponyinabox and wow i looked at his art and he charged like 15 dollars just for a silly sketch on paper but trying to do the show style and getting praise so much of it of of the drawings i don’t really see life into them and they just seem like the cardboard cutout like but hey that’s just me as going into art classes and going into multimedia and 2d arts it looks lifeless.Now getting about 73 dollars a month …for a dj pon3 vampire pony comic its a good idea but really? you had to open a pateron just to get even more money? i mean your collab commissions are starting at 25 bucks it seems a bit to high just over charges people. If i had money i would commission people who would
NEED the money not people who would go buy pony toys and sit back and relax
i don’t get why these two people are popular? What makes them so special to get best artist of 2013 for copying the show style and a guy who got a bronycon2013 panel about drawing ponies?
Im sorry for making this confession its just that’s how i strongly feel inside.

There are way too many poele who are like “It’s an animation, not art” but animation is a form of art. It takes time and skill to make an animation so people need to recognize it as a form of art.

There is not a single term in this (or any) fandom that is LESS useful than the term “Mary Sue”. Mary Sue originally meant an overpowered OC, but has come to mean any “bad” OC. The sticky point is, when a person bandies about the term Mary Sue, who benefits? The artist only gets hurt feelings and has no way of knowing what about their creation is so offensive, and the accuser proves themselves to be little more than a weak excuse for a troll. Absolutely no one is happier. You are better off saying nothing at all.
If you find an OC to be so offensive to you that you are tempted to call it a Mary Sue, stop and ask yourself “What is so bad about this OC?” If your answer starts with “Well I don’t like…” or “I think that…” or “It has a really bad art style…” then kindly click on Dashboard button or home button and never go back; anything you say after that point is not constructive criticism. Your own headcanons about alicorns or rainbow manes or chagelings are irrelevant to the owner of the OC, as they clearly don’t share them if their OC is an Alicorn, has rainbow hair, or is a changeling. If you have a legitimate complaint, ie “Every time you try to interact with another pony you try to seduce them, which makes people uncomfortable”, “The contrast of colors on this pony is too sharp and jarring and might do better if the black was lighter”, then stop and see if the owner has asked for criticism. If the answer is “no”, click on the Dashboard button and don’t look back. If the answer is yes, then politely and succinctly tell them what about their pony bothers you and how you recommend fixing it. (If you have no way to fix the problem, again, Dashboard).
I’ll close by saying I am not addressing this to trolls. Trolls are not courteous by nature, and only care about carnage, not criticism. Quite honestly, they are only intelligent enough to sling mud until someone snaps, shouting “Kill yourself” and “Your art is ****” because they have nothing real or useful to say. I am addressing this to responsible, intelligent fans of the show. “Mary Sue” is an archaic and meaningless term with no real use in an articulate and thoughtful critic’s vocabulary. Just consider that, when you next try to help another artist.
Hey everyone! Melody, here. I just wanted to say that I still don’t have photoshop back, however I figured out that Gimp works just fine for the text effects and such, so I’m back!
What I mean is some people have an amazing style and art and a really good personality but all they get is like 75 followers out of the whole year. Now Im talking like grade-A art that updates frequently and is just the best you’ve ever seen.
And then there’s the blogs that get over 2.000 followers in just the first week when they barely update and don’t even try to make their art the best it can be. I really dont think those kinds of people deserve their followers and that people should recognize the talent of some other people rather than just jump on a blog because it has a popular pony like Derpy or Doctor Whooves or Vinyl.

After a decade of telling myself I wouldn’t be able to draw again, watching the streams of multiple artists (primarily outofworkderpy, due to my work hours) I’ve regained the confidence to draw again.
I often find the streams to be a great personal motivator, and often find myself drawing while the stream is running on my second monitor.

It seems way too out of character for her. I mean, she was kind of a c*** in it. She only thought of herself and that put button in harms way too much. I could ignore it if it was Scootaloo since that seems like the kind of thing Scootaloo would do but Sweetiebelle? Nah.

i mean, dont get me wrong if you put all those together and make the character a horrible one, i can understand disliking them. but i’m surprised i’m seeing less of those OC’s being made seriously.
look, i’m not saying we should make OC’s with red/black colors, bat wings, sombra horns and name them “shadow blade” or something, but if someone wants to make an OC, don’t try to force them to avoid that. just try and advise them from putting it together with a very bland personality.

All of you on this blog saying this. Just be quiet.
This post may be hypocritical in some aspects, but I’m rather serious here. What people submit as a “confession” is their business; they wrote that, they sent it, and mlpartconfessions posted it. Simple as that. It doesn’t matter if you disagree, it doesn’t matter if it isn’t detailed, it doesn’t matter if it isn’t even a legitimate confession. They sent it, anon or not, and didn’t keep it to themself. They wanted to express something out loud, and you can’t limit that and tell them that they cannot say that because it’s not a confession. It was already posted. End of story.
