After watching the new Equestria Girl movie a few months ago, I can't help but have the urge to draw the humanized version of the Mane 6. Unfortunately, I had almost close to zero experience in drawing humans before the movie, so I think you would know how that turned out.  Then again, I thought this might be the kick I need to start learning figure drawing and human anatomy, so I put down all the things I was sketching then and just focus only on drawing humans. Needless to say, it's difficult, but after pencil sketches upon pencil sketches, I decided to pick some of the decent one ( I think ) and made a painting out of it. So, this was the result. 

I definitely have a lot of rooms I need to improve on, like the flow of the hair, basic poses, skin tone color etc.

For one who has little experience in drawing human figures, this turned out very well, indeed. You applied your skill in shading to good effect, and Sunset's facial proportions and seem fine, too. I look forward to see what you might do in the future in terms of drawing humans in more dynamic poses.

I'd say the anatomy here is absolutely spot on!

I think in it's raw unrefined state it's kind of charming. Thanks for sharing :+fav:

I love how you've drawn her: you've given her an almost ethereal quality.
