AT: Sunset Star bonus sketches by Turtle-Arts AT: Sunset Star bonus sketches by Turtle-Arts
Okay, so I decided to include these sketches because I liked them and I thought :iconflying-fox: might appreciate it. These were the sketches I did to associate myself with Fox's pony character and how to figure out how I would draw the FiM style. And then I drew a more realistic version of her just to get the pony out of my system. XD FiM anatomy is so strange to me. It's not really horse anatomy so much as it is cat/dog/horse anatomy all hybridized together. I mean MLP ponies have never really had particularly accurate horse anatomy though so it's not really anything too unusual.

And I guess this would be a good opportunity to get something straight:

I have no problem with Friendship is Magic as a show, or with its art style. I think it's a nicely put together cartoon, it just doesn't really interest me as far as its stories or characters go. I don't really find the stories very grabbing or it's jokes very funny. It's just kind of average to me. I don't hate it by any means, but I'm kind of indifferent towards it. If you like it, that's fine. If you don't that's fine too. I mean, for me My Little Pony will always be this ->[link] and Friendship is Magic is just... I dunno, some other show with ponies. XD Granted I was never a huge MLP fan even as a child, but I had a few of the toys. Didn't keep any over the years though. When it came to toy horses I was more of a Breyer girl.

Okay, now we've got that cleared up. So no fighting about whether the show's any good or not on here, okay? I don't want to hear about trash talk about the fandom folk because that's something else entirely. And fandoms don't affect my opinions towards shows or series for positive or negative purposes. I just look at the show for what it is by itself.

The finished image I did for the trade:

K thnx bai

I'm a bit between indifference and dislike of it. I mostly just don't understand why it's so popular with people over a certain age group, haha. Also that old version is also the only one I'll be bothered with, haha, and it's still something I don't just go "ga-ga" over. Just one of those reminiscing types of shows.

Anyhow, I like the different styles and interpretations of the character. My favorite is probably the bottom left one, though, since it has so much character in that gesture and expression. Nice work :v

Yeah, it is a bit strange. But that's why I said I don't want to talk about the fan base. XD That's territory that I don't want to venture into. o_o

Yeah, haha. Dangerous, dangerous territory. Which is kind of odd since it's about colorful ponies.

The center figure is really impressive. Nicely rendered.
