Soldier learned his lesson and kept the grenades as far away from these three as possible.

Now that I think about it, this would be a reference to The Pacifier with Vin Diesel.

I've looked at this picture many times since it was first posted and this is the first time I've noticed the juice box bandoleer.  :)   Great picture.  Soldier is best foal sitter.

After enjoying another look back at this picture (I love this grouping), I was caught up looking at Sweetiebell.  Then a great though passed in my head.

While sleeping like that.  What if she had a tasty dream and started to lick his hand.  Like a sleepy kitten.  :D  I have held a kitten sleeping in my hand like that and felt it suddenly just lick my hand.  So adorable.  :3

Kittens falling asleep in your hands is exactly where I got the idea for Sleepy-belle :3 you don't wanna wake them so you deal with whatever pose the fell asleep in and let them be :D an adorable inconvenience

Foalsitter soldier is the best soldier. He is prepared for any childrearing problems with his helmet and juicebelt.

And than Scootaloo was put in the penalty box.

BTW, the juice boxes are a really nice touch. You don't go into a job you aren't prepared for.

Though it kinda looks like Scoots' standing her ground rather than hanging. Maybe she's learned a trick or two from Pinkie Pie.

Even with minimal shading there is still a great sense of depth to this cartoon, it's not "flat".
Got any tips on how you got this good?
How do you keep your proportions right? I have a huge problem with that, I'll draw one leg, then the other one will be kind of off.
I also have a problem getting that "depth" in my work, I can draw hands curving outward toward the viewer, but it'll look like a paper hand.
In your pieces, you have various angles, but the sense of depth is maintained. Any tips you got would be really appreciated ^_^

I'm not sure I know anything about actual art study ._. I think I've just been drawing so long I pick up things through instinct, if I do at all.
for proportions though, what the guy below me said - start with simple shapes for your characters, sketch and plan out your picture (consider it a blueprint for the finished masterpiece~) so that way you can see if everything looks proper and proportionate - if your planning sketch is good then your picture is pretty much guaranteed for success afterwards. if not then fix what needs to be fixed to get the sketch looking right!

As for depth...I think it has a lot to do with understanding how objects face towards you or away from you (again, shapes may make a great difference in this case, even without shading/color/any other indication of it www.flickr.com/photos/99136073... here's a quick, crappy attempt to explain that if it helps :P )

amongst everything, I suppose practice is a great friend in getting better at these things :D hope any of that helped ya.

Yah, that's the same way I got to where I am now. Just practiced on my own.
Thanks for the tips too, I'm definetly gonna try making that geometric breakdown before getting into the actual drawing.

You may try breaking characters and objects into simple geometrical shapes. For example in most pony drawing tuts you start with three circles: two for a body and one for the head.

For humans, here is a bit of useful stuff (those "block-in" tuts): georgetownatelier.com/tutorial...

If you want to learn drawing just draw a fscking lot. (lol, recursion)

(No, I'm not good at drawing; just repeating stuff I've heard milion times on DA.)
