My first attempt at drawing pony OC by Makenshi179 My first attempt at drawing pony OC by Makenshi179
The title says it all... It's nowhere near perfect!
And I think I seriously overdid it with the colors...
Oh well. I'll give it another try and hopefully get better over time!

If I'd have to name my OC, I think I'd call her "Passion"... since that's the word which represents my life the most.

This is actually an really nice piece of art, better than when I first tried to draw ponies...they were horrible and had bubble butts...but other than that, it looks great, is this your first time drawing ponies?

Wow, thanks! ^^ Yeah that was my first time. Didn't really improve since then lol XD But I'm faithful that I will eventually if I seriously put myself into it :) And by that I mean a lot of time and dedication! XD I think that as long as you've got those two things, time and dedication, you can do anything in life.
For this I actually watched a video on YouTube from someone teaching you to draw ponies. I watched and paused the video several times while drawing, and after some finicky work, tadaaa! ^^

Well, at least you're honest and brave enough to venture into the artistic side of the mlp fandom...and along with what you said, time and dedication, I absolutely understand^^ I was horrible at drawing sonic style hedgehogs, but I got good at it after a while...and then I was horrible at drawing ponies, but with a little help, and references, plus dedication for art work, I was able to really improve my art style of ponies, and they look real better than when I first drew them. I'm glad that you're happy with this fandom, and I hope I can help you become a great brony^^ also, if you want, I could also instill some of my knowledge of canonical things about the show unto you...would you be ok with that?

I am INCREDIBLY happy being a part of this fandom! It's more than a fandom, it's a family! (to quote BlackGryph0n) Before I found out about MLP I already felt I was as happy as I could be (with games, animes, music, Touhou, etc) but then MLP just gave me that much more happiness, while I thought it was impossible..! It went "over the max", and not by a small amount XD And that feels SO great, everyday :)

Ha, I think I'm ok with knowledge of canonical things, I think I already know A LOT! (well, up until season 4, I still have to watch that one) You see, I love knowledge very much and use to spend a whole day just to watch ONE episode! (yes, one whole day!) That's because I like to often pause the episode, think about dialog lines, their connection to the story and to the depth of the characters, be sure I understand everything that is to understand at every second of the episode... And the next day(s) I would usually look up vectors and pictures related to that episode on DeviantArt. The seasons' premiere and finale episodes sure took several days!! Also I'm taking screenshots. My MLP picture folder counts more than 1500 pictures!! By the way I have a copy of it online, here if you want it : derpy.me/8f6ot
So yeah I think my own way of gathering knowledge is efficient enough, but sure, if you feel I missed anything, you can tell me just in case, no problem! :) Just not anything about S4 for now.
Also we could discuss about "what we've learned so far", to quote Twilight Sparkle! :D

You shouldn't use bright colors, you should use pastel/dull colors. Also, use the same colors as tail and mane. Make the eyes pop out more with a bright color.

Thanks for the advice! Yeah I completely did any old thing with the colors. Well, I'll make sure to improve!
