The Musical Pony by SoulSpade The Musical Pony by SoulSpade
My broken attempt at one of *8-Xenon-8's drawing styles with my coloring mixed in.

I just love her art so much, I wanted to see how Cantus would look and couldn't resist a quick drawing :aww:

I think it would be more than fine in featured, but that's just like... my opinion, man.

You did a good job mimicking that art style, but still kept your coloring style. =)

I love his expression and the Chinese fingertrappish thing on his tail is a neat design touch. :D

Thanks, it's the band that you sometimes see on a horse's tail, I felt it would be a nice way to make Cantus more unique while keeping generally simple with it ^^ Glad you like it

Haha! I watch both you and Xenon, so when I saw this in my deviantWATCH messages, I though, "Oh, look, Xenon drew SoulSpade's character." You had me fooled, so I think you nailed it.

You should try more styles, I do it all the time.

Perhaps, I once thought of posting just a collection showing all sorts of different styles ^^

I saw some of your drawings, you really should post some more artwork, that is unless I'm missing some

Someone said he came out looking a little creepy, so I was bit discouraged. I need to work on taking criticism, shouldn't take stuff so personally you know? XD

Means a lot that you like it though

When I saw this, I instantly recognized 8-Xenon-8's influence. I love that style, and you pulled it off so well, and the coloring is very good.

By the way, I also really like your OC's design. Most OCs I find to be rather obnoxious-looking, but not yours!

People will all have their opinions (sometimes negative) on a style that differs from what they're used to seeing. All I can say is it looks good and well done for experimenting, it's always a rewarding thing to experiment in art and to break the mold.

I love seeing people using my drawing style, and it looks so cool when mixed with your colouring style :la:
'Course, for anyone not used to seeing my drawing style... it does come off as a bit strange I suppose :iconrainbowdashshrugplz:

I'll admit that it was peculiar the first time I came upon it, but I warmed up to it quickly and it's now one of my favorite pony styles, especially with how expressive you are with it ^^

So good to hear that you like it, I felt that I had ruined it

I'm sure you could too if you work to analyze and really pay attention to what it is that gives the artist their particular style. There are a good bit of factors, but if you are diligent, you can begin to determine ways of discovering their techniques and attempt to apply them yourself

Believe me, I've tried. I just feel most comfortable with my own style just because the end product seems to be always how I like it. When I attempt another sort, I don't like how it comes out

I can agree with you on that, although even my own drawings don't do much to impress me sometimes
