Expression practice by Agamnentzar Expression practice by Agamnentzar
So I drew some faces to practice expressions, and then added colored hair to them. Can you name all of the ponies ? :)

I drew all the expressions first and assigned ponies later so some expressions are really random :P

You did a really great job here!
Is it possible to use this as a reference? I'm trying to learn how to pose ears for expressions xD

So that's what you've been up to! I started to miss a new image from you :D What you call "practice" is what I call "proof of exceptional talent". Every single expression is perfectly portrayed. And if I had to choose a few favourites, I would definitely say Derpy and Vinyl :3 There's a need for those expressions to appear in a future image :D Amazing work!

Amazing expressions, and covering such a wide variety of emotions...

My favorite expressions are Berry Punch's ooops-I-didn't-mean-to-say-it-like-that expression, Luna's smug grin paired with the expression of horror on the pony to her right, and Vinyl's ugh look.

Aww, so many sad ponies up at the top... I hope they feel better soon.

As always, amazing job.  You have clearly succeeded in conveying a wide range of emotions simply and effectively - and you've even managed to keep all of them so cute, with those fluffy ears and adorable eyes.  Finally, your coloring is amazing and show accurate, with the more vibrant outlines and softer insides that you can so precisely control.

Keep up the great work!

Imagine my surprise when I look at my messages and spot a huge collection of expressions and I think: "By Agamnentzar? I've gotta see this!". Then, out of nowhere, what else do I spy but a mention! Cool! Who's it by? Why it's Aga.....WAIT.

I can't believe you decided to include me in this adorable and amazing bunch of expressions! Thank you! It was a wonderful surprise, and quite an honour! :D

Let me be the first to say feel free to use Bright Ember whenever you want, especially if this is the kind of awesome stuff you're making! Keep up the great work!

Well, my plan from the beginning was to include you guys and mane6, and then think what to do with the rest of the expressions :D Also...

Was beginning to wonder where you were (and what you've been up too o3o)

Can't even imagine the kinda effort and patience it musta taken to work up such a  wonderful project like this :O ( like to imagine you had lots of fun with it though :3 ) every one of these is pretty amazing if not hilarious :D a little fan-gasming at how neat your style with ponies has (long since) become, all the little features have their own uniqueness, the eyes, brows, fuzz, etc. just as linework your characters are amazing, let alone your mastery of colored pencils :3c really cool that you actually did color work with their manes, that adds a perfect vividness to this collection of drawings.
Mind blowing work man, keep shooting for them stars!

Haha, I've been mostly really busy with 2 day jobs :P But the craziness is over and now I have more time for ponies :)

Thank you :D It was certainly a lot of fun to draw all those ponies :) The expressions themselves were surprisingly easy and fast to draw, I spent most of the time choosing proper pony for each expression and trying to fit their manes in those crowded spaces. Especially when I ran out of well known ponies :)

I actually planned on doing just colored lines for hair, but after I finished lines I couldn't stand how plain Rainbow Dash looked with only outlines... so I colored all of them. The style really comes out when you need to draw so many ponies at once and you don't need to strive for perfection on each one :) Also your drawing style definitely provided a lot of inspiration for creating my own :)

Not enough pones.
The added fluff on the cheeks and ears makes them even cuter.
