Fluttershy Feeding Birds by Bakuel Fluttershy Feeding Birds by Bakuel
I know everyone's probably tired of singing Fluttershy by now, but I just really liked the last episode. So have another. 

Anyway, playing around with more "cluttered" environment here. How many objects can you attempt to fit into a scene and still have it come out looking at least a little pleasing composition wise? Still need to keep playing around with this.

This picture increases my gallery's Fluttershy by 100%!

I can definitely hear her singing in acapella by herself called "Music in the Treetops while looking at this lovely artwork you have here.

I forgot to ask, how did you do the characters without outlines? just lots of erasing and re-drawing?

Do you mean those art outlines?
If so, then yes, it really is just a matter of erasing and re-drawing until you get it right. Everyone has their own way to draw ponies.
I usually sketch them out in gimp and paint/color over them in SAI.
Here is a thing I made for a old post on another forum that shows the original sketch for a different picture. My sketches are messy.
Most art is 90% cleaning up.

Wow, that's absolutely amazing, thank you for spending the time to reply to me. I really do appreciate it. I try to take everything I hear and practice and apply it to try and create my own technique and art style. Once again, thank you for being awesome. 
Stay brony my friend.

No problem, and don't worry *too* much about developing your own unique special style. It will naturally happen on it's own. Just keep looking at different art and thinking/analysing about what you like and dislike about it and expose yourself to a wide variety of experiences. You might discover you like ponies with button noses or you may favor a more equine boxish nose for example. Try to incorporate that into your sketching. And most importantly, just try to draw the art how it appears in your head. If that makes sense. Your art will become unique on it's own, and it will come through both in form, color usage and content. 

Also, if your just starting out sketching, not really pony related but I highly recommend the drawing books by Andrew Loomis  (they are floating around the internets in pdf form, just google "Save Loomis!" and it should be the first link). Not that you have to read them from front to back, but they are worth flipping through. Especially the idea of sketching figures (including ponies) by starting with the basic shapes, and trying to imagine the shapes and figures in 3d space. Someone recommended these books to me three years ago or so and they are partly what caused me to start to really improve after 6 years of stagnation.
The "Fun with the Pencil" and "Figure Drawing" ones are especially useful to drawing figures in multiple poses, whether realistic, cartoony or pony. 

But that's just my two cents. The most important thing is to draw.

I've heard of people getting 'stuck' and improving so minutely that it becomes a bit annoying, so I will look for these books and try my best to improve. Thank you once again for taking the time to see to a simple fans' needs. I'll be sure to help anyone else I can with the knowledge that I gain from generous people like you. 

Hope to finally post something I'm happy with soon. Looking forward to it (even though it's my own work :P)

Sincerely,

Fluttershy is full of cuteness.

Indeed she is. That's probably the true reason why she lives away from Ponyville, if she lived in town the cuteness would be too much for everyone to handle. It would be instant anarchy! 

That's the true reason why Discord gets along so well with her. It all makes sense!

Because you know it to be true! Search your feelings! Fluttershy's cuteness will lead to a new era of chaos!

Yay, now we can spend some quality time together in a padded cell, banging our heads against the walls and screaming "You KNOW I'm saying the truth and you're AFRAID of it!"
