Arrivederci! by JWiesner Arrivederci! by JWiesner
Listen to this! www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzi_RP… "My Drag" by Squirrel Nut Zippers. The lyrics don't match but the mood does. Discord must have a theme.

Shhh, I started to love chaotic Jazz many years ago. I'll probably love it till I die for Jazz is immortal but I'm not. And Squirrel Nut Zippers make fantastic music. Lots of it.

This is a picture from one of my sketchdumps that I decided to color.

Well, first thing I need to say - I completely love his expression. Little bit derpy, little bit mischievous, also is tiny elevated, confident or maybe even arrogant. Exactly what Discord is like! *clap clap clap* Background looks like an optical illusion in some ways, I'm not quite sure what should I think about it but I know that there must be lots of people who like it + the lightning is pleasant, so that's about the vision. Technique is also really on place, not so simple as it is in regular cartoon and on the other hand not so realistic, so Discord can stil be cartoony.
Impact 4 stars because of that face! :3

When he tries to make Fluttershy a bad person and fails a few times because she's too nice and understanding to be angry about anything, then he uses force to change her and says goodbye in Italian before poofing away.

Oh yeah!!!! Question: Don't you think the episodes are more exaggerated now? Before, it was like they didn't care who watched, they had a style, and now that style is gone and they're fishing for more viewers.

JWiesner Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2016
Honestly, I don't watch MLP. I only watched the Discord episodes as he's the only character which interests me.

I also watched a handful of other non-Discord episodes to see if I'm interested in the show or not. And I'm not. Sorry.

Exactly, an then he threw away that left-over cocoa and it EXPLODED. :lol: You know it's a good character if a 3 seconds scene makes you laugh that hard. Especially because it's hard to make me laugh, I'm super picky with story characters.

Wow, this is stunning!! You're extremely gifted. When I look at your artwork, I go "Grr... wish I had your gift" (Well, my time will come eventually. :) )

Thank you, I'm glad you like this! :)

I don't really see it as "gift" though, because it's more practice than anything. :aww: Just like it's not a "gift" when someone is good enough for the olympics, they trained to get there.

Being an artist is the same, you just stick with it and try to get better, and love what you do.

It's also important that you don't compare your work with other's, you only need to compare your new work with your old. (Trust me, I would also get too discouraged if I saw my favorite artist's work and compared them with mine, haha.)

Not sure if you're the conversating type but I've been recently seeking help from others on why exactly whenever I draw it never turns out the way I want it. It's just very hard. That's the reason why I have jealousy to a certain extent. It makes me sorta disappointed with myself that I 'could' do better but just am not able to do so. That's the reason why I feel like giving up sometimes.

I people hate to get in other people's drama and such but, I'm in need from advice from people who have drawn longer than I had. I get so depressed with such things. I just wanna be proud of what I put onto a sheet of paper.

JWiesner Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2015

I'm not sure if it's any comfort, but as someone who's been drawing over ten years I can tell you I'm still struggling to really get what I have in mind down on paper too. Sometimes the images aren't clear enough in my head but I still have a "feeling" for the character. And then the journey begins where you just draw and draw until you're comfortable with the design. But even then, after max. 24 hours, your brain usually goes "You can do better than that!" and is unhappy with the art again.

Pro: This attitude gives you the will to make progress quickly.

Con: You quickly lose interest in your old art. And it makes some people give up there because they're stuck with the thought that their art is "bad".

Instead of thinking your art is bad, make it better next time! Have fun learning new things, have fun making progress. That's how I experience making art.

Another important thing is, don't rush! Instead of thinking "Man, this is gonna take 12 hours to make!" you just focus on each 5 minutes you're on. You have plenty of time to finish your artwork, there's no time-out clock or anything. There's luckily no mean idiot giving you GRADES and shit either, because you're your own judge.

Ok so I'm not an MLP fan but as most people are here on DA I decided to watch a documentary called Bronies so I could at least ķnow a little about it. I've always been fond of the concept of chaos and a villain that embodies that. And Discord here, a lunatic trickster assembled from various creatures voiced by noneother than Tom De Lancie, really shines. Your art of him, especially this one brings the coolest and darkest elements elements out from that concept for me. Well done!

I'm not a MLP fan myself, honestly. This is the first time where I'm not interested in a show but I'm nuts about one villain. :[ I love everything about Discord, and dislike everything else happening in the same episodes, haha.

I really like this piece. It's not often I come across artwork of Discord looking so... serious or murderous... either one. He still has that mischievous, chaotic feel to him that makes up Discord. But I quite like this portrayal of him. It's fitting, especially with the darker, more shadowed parts of the drawing.

Nicely done. Meow :3

I very much enjoy drawing villains. They often have more complex personalities than the good guys, which is fun to draw out in their expressions and faces.

You're very welcome!

I agree with that (even though I don't actually draw) but villains tend to be more bad-ass than heroes. So there's that too. But I can definitely see the fun you had in this one. :D

If you were open to commissions, I would have something for you... but it might not be exactly your everyday cup, unless you'd be willing to try it. Even then, I can always moderate it so it's more flexible.

Ah, unfortunately I just had to close commissions. December is always busy with stuff.

I'm flexible! There's only few contents I won't draw. But as far as character designs go, no limits. :)

Its hard to beleive the spirit of chaos and diharmony, A.K.A Everyones favorite troll is from My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic. I never knew about Quen chrysalis, Discord or (pun alert) Night Mare Moon and Luna being one mare before I became a Brony. What really brought me over to their side is the fan music, games and videos. They probably make some of the best indie musc I have ever heard. And if you want a song as Discord`s theme go on youtube and search up: Super Ponybeat - Discord (Eurochaos mix) By Oddyssey Eurobeat

This character is from a TV show, and the design is correct. He's a spirit of chaos and disharmony. It only makes sense his design looks random. xD
