"In my day mares wore sensible clothing, a scarf and bonnet at most"
I was just going to put this on my Tumblr ([link]
) but I like it enough to put it here.
This wasn't about the joke which is just there to give the picture some context (I hate drawing pictures without context or reason). The focus here was finding a way to draw ponies in a way which is more flexible and easier to reproduce with some consistency. I've simplified the face to be more round and made the snout not protrude the face outline at this angle. The legs have been extended as well as the neck. The shading has had a small change with which mode the shadow layer is using. The eyes are now using 2 colours which are smudged together to create a smooth gradient.
I may start using this for comics at some point instead of what I'm currently using.
