My Little Pony Study by Inkwell-Pony My Little Pony Study by Inkwell-Pony
Obsession is a scary scary thing. I noticed that I was drawing the characters I've been submitting off scale, and while they were still awesome pictures, it was DRIVING ME INSANE. So, this is my self designed Pony Guide, to help me draw ponies more accurately. If you have any suggestions for correcting or improving it, I would greatly appreciate it. Comments are requested, because I can't improve without active commentary! SAY STUFF! There, got it out of my system.

This looks so awesome but i notice some of the heads in mlp are different shapes and legs slightly more elongated and so is the horn , for the official mlp , I suggest maybe looking at some of the mlp pony creators around to get some ideas, otherwise this is great, better than anything i could ever do :) btw do you have any tips for a new artist who wants to make linearts but cant make the lines as smooth as the ones above? mine tend to go a little jagged edged.

If he's going for real wings, like some artists do, then he's way off since most of the time they seem to be modeled after bird wings which actually fold in/out and, based on pictures, it seems there is some variation in feather length and positions.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

You should add more wing angles and a filly and a male pony base as well. Just a suggestion :iconumbreonplz:

The wing position would actually change with each view so maybe you should try doing wings on all of them instead of separate... just an idea :iconbonbonshrugplz:

Depending on certain styles some of these are fiddled around with (Longer legs, shorter/longer necks, bigger eyes, different ears). But I agree, that they all have a similarity from show style. Something I've to say on improving the chart is that there seems to be a major concave on the back of the 3/4's view pony. Just don't make it as exaggerated and it's perfect. Also a thing that may need fixing is that the Front facing pony has a circular head though, like with many living creatures, has a more oval skull. So make the Skull a soft Oval, making it not a strict definition, though not being a complete round circle. Am I making sense?

this really helped when I was first learning how to draw them, but if you wanted it to be 100% show accurate, the wing has only 7 feathers total: 4 main ones, not 5, and then the 3 that you have. I don't know if you wanted it to be just like the show, but that was the only thing I saw. great work otherwise :)

This picture that you made has taught me more about making ponies then any other resource I have found. Thank you for that. While I have ended up making my pony base mesh without using this picture as reference, I couldn't have done it at all without first learning from this piece.
