G4 MLP Anatomy Notes - Legs by Pix3M G4 MLP Anatomy Notes - Legs by Pix3M
Another thing I've written on the various possible mistakes I've learned about.

Edit: Jan 2, 2013: changed the name of the series for 'marketability' reasons, added more content.
Nov 25, 2012 : rephrased some parts.

Also check out what I've written for
... the eyes: [link]
.. and nose: [link]
...the ears, tail, and the core: [link]
...neoteny & acceleration: [link]

Another leg tutorial I think has a bit of merit, by *Whatsapokemon [link]

What's wrong with Pinkie's legs in that pic? The knees are bent back as they should be... It doesn't look to me like they've reached the ankle joint just yet. Usually when they do bends like that, it seems to me more that they've enlarged the hip-knee section and the kept the ankle and hoof joints straight. In fact, it looks almost identical to the pose of the correct Rainbow Dash legs just above, and even incorrect RD to the side has the same elongated femur part followed by the knee joint and straightened ankle and hoof joints. There is a bit of distortion/stretching going on and Pinkie's... Totally a liquid in that particular pixture (chubby, gum-like) but I think they're still following their pony-joint laws.
The incorrect RD definitely has some... Length issues, everywhere. But I think the bends are okay. Just shorten that femur, elongate the shin, add a hoof join in there... Prolly wouldn't look so bad.
