Achievement Unlocked - Sweetie Belle's Heart by LockeRobster Achievement Unlocked - Sweetie Belle's Heart by LockeRobster
"I-Its nothing special, B-but I hope you like it"

And then Button Mash died. A high pitch noise shredded his eardrums and then he was smothered till he lost conciousness, and then life.

Lucky for him he still has 2 continues.

This is a fulfilled request for :iconmedio-cre:. The request was basically "something related to 'Don't mine at night'" OR "diabetes inducingly cute". I went for both :)

I spent a fair chunk of time on this piece and I'm quite proud of it but in the interest of growth I'd like to request some critiques. Hope you guys love it!

I think your style is absolutely awesome, especially for traditional art,
and it's amazing how you did the textures. Sometimes doing (shitty) traditional art myself,
I know how hard it can be to make colour or shades look as homogenous as in your picture.
And even though I don't know how to interpret Button's smug expression, I think Sweetie's face is utterly adorable :D (Big Grin)
The only two things I'd have to suggest for improvement are, that the hooves look a bit angular at some points
and the perspective of the mill on top of Button's hat looks a bit off to me, but maybe that's just me.
Those are only minor nit-picks though and I think it's great, that you made a pencil drawing with such show accurate style.

Thanks for your kind words and the feedback on the image, You have a good eye! A few other people pointed out I draw ridged hooves, I think its because before ponies I drew (average) anime with plenty of pointy elbows and that. I'm working on that.

As for buttons expression I was going for a 60% confident 40% uncontrollable nervousness. He knows she is going to love it and he's trying to play it down so she'll love it even more, hence the mock smugness. At the same time there's something about her that causes his heart to skip a beat :)

Ah, I see.
I thought it had something to do with him covering up his nervousness :)

Your art is so damn show accurate and anatomically correct.

Im curious Locke, next time you draw something like this can you show a sort of 'before and after' picture? You know, a picture only a few minutes into the drawing and whatnot.

Im interested to see how you go about it.

Ill keep that in mind next time I draw a pone. Ive been working on a piece since yesterday called Button SMASH, its in my scrapbook if you want to check it out but Button himself is basically finished, just working on the background now.

Thanks for taking note of how I do, mang.
