*Updated: [Info] Black Pearl

**Copied from Jaguar's Black Pearl post on the International Site**

Hi guys, this thread is for all you budding artists out there who perhaps have submitted coats in the past or perhaps aren't intending to submit anything but would like to give a hand to those who need it.
Feel free to submit your own line art if you'd like other players to use it; make sure you clearly state you're giving your permission, though! If you don't want it used, say so, or write it on the image itself so it cannot be coloured.

If you're an artist intending to submit a coat, please remember:

~The coat MUST be your own work - preferably hand drawn work, whether that be by hand on an art programme or physically on a piece of paper and then scanned on. You may use another player's line art if you have their permission first.

~You can use a photograph to use as inspiration, but please don't trace it. If you're using a photograph or graphic from the internet to inspire you, please make sure it is copyright free and available for use by anyone. If you are not sure, please assume that copyright exists on it and therefore cannot be used - or at least, you cannot tell what you were looking at when you were drawing it!

~Please do NOT use Breyer Models or pinch things from DeviantArt etc. If we see a coat that looks like it's from there, we WILL be checking with that artist.


Please put up the graphics here if possible. You will have to upload the picture somewhere on the internet before you can put it up here - photobucket is one example of a free hosting site.

I'm hoping that no one will abuse this thread, but please note that players stealing pictures or claiming other people's work is their own WILL be sanctioned.

Please remember this isn't a chat topic - its for showing coat designs and helping others create/improve theirs. I will lock this if the rules aren't followed.

<b>***Update: We have updated and clarified the Black Pearl creation page so that it is easier to understand. You can check out the updated text on the Black Pearl page.</b>

Hi HowrsesUnited,

When you say stuck, how do you mean, with the artwork itself or with the program you are using?

Hard to tell exactly as the image is small, however the design itself looks good. Perhaps you can further your artwork by adding more detail (Mane, Tail, Ears & any relevant shading) and tidy up a few lines (around Neck & Check). I love the white socks, looks adorable.

Keep at it!

New coat in the works, using a new software (Sketchbook) as well, but I might switch back to GIMP, I don't expect this coat to be done until after June (ugh exams getting in the way as usual default smiley :@)

Wow... All this art... It's amazing! I sort of get the feeling that when mine gets submitted, it'll get squashed under all this awesome artwork default smiley xd Keep up the good work guys! My next favourite thing to making good art myself is seeing other people's art.

decided to do another sketch, this time I actually used some references (especially for the legs and size of the head, I find those to be the hardest thing to get right). This won't be ready for July, hoping to maybe go a sci-fi robot horse kinda way, but we'll see

So I decided that I'm gonna post the image in my last post as a separate coat and see if that gets it, but I'm still gonna work on my robo-horse, I managed to get the robot look done today

Made some quick sketches, I think I'll progress with the first one, after that robot horse of course (which will probably take some time) but hopefully be ready for the next month. I don't think I'll do anything with the second but I thought i'd share it anyway (although I do want to do something in that style one day)

I've edited it a little since I uploaded those images. And yes, I knwo they're messy, I'll clean them up soon. I haven't included my other one, as I only have very arly images, so I'll post it later.

I really like your art HowrsesUnited - especially that second one. The detail on the legs is exsquisite.

Got a coat I'm working on. Thoughts? Constructive critiques?

Working on another coat, I did the rough sketch months ago and just now decided to actually work on the line art, won't be ready for November though with exams getting in the way, but hopefully ready for December!

Thanks MikaylaBD, I've hit a bit of an art block recently so it wasn't ready for this months round of the black pearl, but I thought I'd update you guys





(I know I've still gotta clean up a lot of the work) but if anyone had any tips I'd love to hear them

Found some of my old art and have gone back to editing. A bit of a mess, and somewhat confusing to do, as I started ages ago when I was a complete rookie...

Forgot to resize, so you may want to right click the images and go "view image" so that you don't have to do the annoying scrolling thing.

Any thoughts? Lines by darya78

Cool work! love the colour you chose, your shading is far better than mine (probably because many of my works don't make it to that stage so I never really practice it default smiley xd )

Finally finished! I think I'll do something simpler next, I have a few ideas that could work

working on something new, just got down the very basic sketch today, hopefully I can get the lineart done before the end of the month, also might change the pose of the horse just a little, also gonna try for a different style this time ( as my last coat took way too long to finish)

Well I managed to finish the creation above, very different style to my last one but I like the lines of it (took me a while to figure out which colour they should be, still not sure if I chose correctly)
