I remember last year someone suggest just to post as a BP and see what would come up. But in all seriousness, it depends on what you’re looking for in the design. When I started out,I took some inspiration from Canon designs an made them unique.

Hmm, maybe after I’m done with the sketch for mine, I can jot something down for you on paper. And if you know anyone who can color it digitally, that’s fine by me.

Hmm, try sketching out your cutie mark or if you already have it done, re-trace it using Inkscape. after you’ve done that, select the CM press Ctrl+K, then Shift+Ctrl+7 and add path effect > Envelope Deformation and bend the side path of both side to match your body curvature.


@Mike
Hmm, not sure, i don’t think the pose will be a problem because it’s either standing or sitting mostly for this collab, try focusing on creating a rough design sketch (doesn’t have to be a perfect sketch) of your oc mane & tail first :D

if any of y’all are interested in coming up with a design for an oc but don’t have the means/ability to draw one, i would absolutely recommend idrawyourmlpoc.tumblr.com. it’s 100% free and it helped me create a reference for my own oc, so if you want to see your vision realized this is a great place to do it. i don’t think the artists there do show-style vectors, but what you do get is a handy visual reference for any of the artists here to use for this project. basically you just submit an idea (having a visual reference handy really helps) and wait a few days (i think i waited about 5 or 6 days) for one of their artists to create something. check it out!

@Arifproject
Would you be willing to help my OC appear in this picture? I have pictures of her, but none that meet filetype and clear background requirements.

There’s some pretty varied styles, but I think overall they should be fine

It's A Trap!
Question I’m not sure that hasn’t been addressed, if we were in it last year, but the art of our OC was made by someone else, that will require us to get a new piece, correct? Just asking before I start shooting in the dark suddenly. I’m so glad I had common sense at 1:30 AM in the morning for once to ask a question before posting.

I guess I could draw other people’s OC’s as long as I’m not being spammed with requests. I have a spare hour or two each day where I don’t really have to do anything, so might as well draw some OC’s for practice.
So yeah, count me in, I’d like to help.

So, if I primarily do 3d art, is there a way for me to submit something acceptable? See my artist tag for examples. I do use some publicly available meshes as bases for parts of my models, but I am not just throwing a downloaded model into SFM or anything.

Obviously I’d need to do full pony not anthro, but I happen to be working on an original pony body model that is almost ready.

If 3d art would break the stylistic coherence, I could experiment with cell-shading or other "toon shading" styles.

If allowing 3d art is a can of worms you don’t want to open, that is also okay and understandable. :)
