I began drawing My little Ponies in July of 2014.  I saw that some people on Pinterest were uploading their drawings of ponies and they looked really fun to draw.  I also wanted to try drawing them because my little sister likes to watch the My Little Pony Friendship is Magic cartoon series.


July 7th of 2014 is when I drew my first drawing of a MLP (My Little Pony)

When I first began I hadn't established my own style of drawing MLPs.  I tried to make it look like the shows style as much as possible.

July 11 of 2014 is when I made one of my first characters to be in the rest of my drawings.  When I drew her I was trying to make her more long and thin like the princesses in the show.   I was very pleased with myself that I made her mane and tail look like it was shiny and wavy with my pencils.  I had saw that some girls would do the shines in their ponies hair but had no clue how to make them until that day.
Picture
On July 30th of 2014 I discovered you could put a pin up on Pinterest asking for MLP drawing requests. (People comment on your pin asking you to draw their character) So this was my first MLP drawing request for someone.  
Picture
On October 20th 2014 I began to mess around with the shape of the wings.  I found that drawing the wings with points at the ends was easier for me to draw and it looked better with the way I was drawing my MLPs at the time. 
Picture
October 23rd of 2014 is when I began to try and make my own unique style.  I started to try drawing chibi ponies and was pretty happy with how they turned out.
Picture
October 2014 I morphed my style into what I thought would be a chibi/anime style pony because I thought it would be really cute.

A month later I got frustrated with the way I drew the eyes.  My drawing skills had improved, but the eyes stayed the same.  So I searched the internet and found a few pictures of eyes that I thought were pretty and started drawing my eyes like the picture below.  I also began to practice drawing the face from different angles other than a side view.   
Picture
In December 2014 my style changed again.  I made the nose and forehead more distinct from each other and I made the rump section more rounded. 
Picture
Picture
I was so happy with the eyes in this drawing. I never could figure out how to make a half closed eye without it looking angry until then.
For Christmas in 2014 I received white gel pens and blending pencils.  I think it helps my drawings look more professional.

Picture
In January 2015 I started to change the way I drew the pony's eyes.  I like the way the sparkles look so I haven't changed the way I draw them yet.
Picture
Picture
A few days ago I drew this pony.  I am very happy with how she turned out! 
Picture
I have been drawing ponies for 8 months now.  I think my practice paid off!
Picture
I post a lot of my drawings on my Pinterest board My Drawings and Crafts if you would like to check it out!
Thank you for reading this post! I hope you enjoyed it.

<![CDATA[Blanket Stitch Tutorial]]>Tue, 29 Jul 2014 03:05:27 GMThttp://daughterofthehighkingofkings.weebly.com/drawing--crafting/blanket-stitch-tutorialPicture
Hey all my lovely peeps!

So I am going to make a plushie tutorial very soon and one of the stitches you will need is a blanket stitch.  So I decided to make a tutorial on how to do it in case you didn't happen to know how.


1.  Get your pieces of felt (or other fabric you are using) and put them together like this

2.  Get your needle and thread and poke through the inside of one of the pieces of felt. (Don't forget to knot the end of the thread!) 
3.  Before you pull your thread all the way through remember to lock your stitch! Do that by putting your needle in between the two pieces of thread like in this picture.  This way you don't have to make such a huge knot in the end! Then pull it through!
4.  Next poke a hole in the felt closest to you and into the other piece of felt.
5.  Before you pull your thread tight slip your needle through the loop and pull snugly.
6.  Move down the side of the felt a little bit and poke your needle through both pieces of felt.
7.  Before you pull the thread tight slip your needle through the loop your thread has made and pull until snug.
8.  And that's it! Just keep repeating these steps over and over until you get your fabric all sewn up!
Thank you for reading! I hope you learned a thing or two about how to sew the blanket stitch today! Comment what you thought of this tutorial! Do you have any ideas on how I could improve on these tutorials I have been making? I love to hear from you guys so feel free to comment!!!!

<![CDATA[Felt Plushies]]>Tue, 22 Jul 2014 03:40:03 GMThttp://daughterofthehighkingofkings.weebly.com/drawing--crafting/felt-plushiesHey all! So I have been making these cute little plushies! They are so stinkin' cute! 
This little bunny plush was soooooo fun to make! But let me warn you, The EARS were the pits to put together and put on!  And it may have been the way I put it together or something but I'm not to crazy about making a bunny cube plush again.  It was worth it though! I now have a cute lil' bunny plush ^.^
I enjoyed making this little banana plush so much! It was short and sweet to make!  I made another one and tried to do the cat face like thingie as the facial expression.  I don't know how to describe it.  It sorta looks like this :3  But I guess "Mr.  Picky Banana" didn't want that kind of face sewed on his face permanently...  *sigh* So it turned into a mustache! Goodness I don't know what happened, it was all going swell and then it turned into a little mustache :S) Oh yeah and did I mention that they can come out of their little peal!?  

Hopefully I will be able to post a picture of my little banana plushie with a mustache soon! (Tammy Hallam has a tutorial on YouTube on how to make them! Click HERE for her channel)

Comment if you think I should make a tutorial on how to make one!

<![CDATA[Vintage Nail Art Collaboration]]>Sat, 05 Jul 2014 05:07:24 GMThttp://daughterofthehighkingofkings.weebly.com/drawing--crafting/vintage-nail-art-collaboration

Hello my wonderful readers!!

So today Pink Einstien and I decided to do a collaboration with vintage nail art! You can find her website here. So, let's get on with the tutorial!

First, take your base color and paint only half your nail and make a inward curve near your cuticle.

Next, outline the edge closet to the cuticle with your second color

Then, get the same color polish you did the outline with previously (or you could change it up and do a differant color if you'd like) and make a sideways figure eight along the edge of the outline with two lines coming down from the sideways figure eight, this will be the bow :)

And finally put on a fast drying top coat to make your nails have a nice glossy shine :D

Thank you for reading!

<![CDATA[Messages in a capsule]]>Wed, 02 Jul 2014 04:36:45 GMThttp://daughterofthehighkingofkings.weebly.com/drawing--crafting/messages-in-a-capsule
Hello! So I found this cute idea on Pinterest where you make little messages in an empty pill capsule! I thought I would try it out and show you guys :)  It's pretty simple!


1.  So to start out cut narrow pieces of scrap booking paper (that's what I used but you can use any kind of paper you want!) 
Picture
2.  Fold one of the pieces of paper in half
Picture
3.  Fold that piece of paper in half again
Picture
4.  Unfold the hole strip of paper.  You will notice little creases in your strip, those are your guide lines for where to cut so the little strips of paper are even! 
Picture
5.  Cut on the creases! Now repeat the process so you get alot of these little pieces of paper!
Picture
6.  Write encouraging quotes, verses, anything you want! 
Picture
7.  Roll up your little piece of paper and grab the larger end of your capsule
Picture
8.  Put your roll of paper in the larger part and finish putting the capsule together!
Picture
Picture
And voila! Your done!  Make tons and tons of them!!! Get any kind of container (I used a little jar) to put them in :) 
Picture
Well I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!  I plan on making more craft like DIYs in the near future!  :)

 I love all of the books that these fictional heroines are in!  You can click the book titles above and it will take you to the author's website.  Bryan Davis is an awesome christian author!  He mostly writes about teenagers that go on amazing adventures and almost all of the books he writes have dragons in them! He is on the top of my favorite list.  If you haven't read his books yet you need to go check them out!! Here is his website. Rick Riordan is also an amazing author! He writes series that are based on mythology and have amazing characters that go on epic adventures! Here is his website.  I highly recommend these books!

They are easy and fun to make.  I would recommend it to anyone who loves to craft and make jewelry! Here is one of the ones I made around a year ago. Picture
This is a Star Burst Rainbow Loom Bracelet.  It toke me a couple times to get it right but it finally came together! The pattern for this bracelet can be tricky sometimes but it's worth it!
