Pinkie's back hair. My spine now feels uncomfortable. I can't unsee this.
Why? Why would you do this?

Next one I can guarantee to make people lose their jaws as it will provide a reasonanle foundation to finding one's anatomical style and make so much sense of the world. It will be highly theoretical though.

I find this really nice to read. I always try to put a sense of realistic equine features in my ponies and one thing I've always played with is the ears. I make me more realistic but still have the cartoony look to them. Horses really do use their ears a lot to communicate. They'll swivel them to the side to hear clearly (much like other animals like rabbits, dogs, and cats do), they'll let them flop when they're relaxed, perked up when they're listening, and boy oh boy flatten ears back is a sign to not piss them off. XD

I really do like reading this, I really do. <3

This is a really useful tutorial. I'm so glad you used real horses to make your points! That's easier for me to understand than just lineart... :) Thanks for providing this.

I really appreciate these because first of all I am a science student and I have caught all of the inaccuracies, if you will, of the ponies' bodies, their movements, etc. compared to real equines. They don't bother me, it's just that being a sciencey person I couldn't help but to notice and point them out. This is awesome and thanks a lot!

What I think is really amazing are areas which science is perfectly applicable to the arts. But, what I think is also very interesting are instances where we can toy around with what would otherwise be real to make something that is still convincing. What an interesting world we live in :D

Yay! Been waiting for this one. Thank you.

These are really good to show new artists. When anybody needs help with proportions these notes are the first place I point them.

Funny because first thing these tutorials do is point at the show, and encourage looking at horses. That's putting aside people who suggest to draw from life as there are so many things you won't learn through drawing cartoons.
