Today I posted a drawing for picture called Sun Chariot baron-engel.deviantart.com/art…. In the posting I commented that I might do the final piece as anthro. The question i have my followers is do I: 

45%
135 deviants said Go with Anthro. Princess with 2 legs.
29%
88 deviants said Keep her Feral/Show style. Princess with 4 legs.
25%
76 deviants said You couldn't care one or another they all look good.

Show style is feral?  Hmmmmm...that might explain some of their baffling engineering decisions, like this bridge in Manehattan:

Those supports focus all the stress on a narrower pillar!  That's the opposite of a good bridge design!

Jeans on the bent horse legs looked awkward. That's why I voted two.

I see that anthro is winning the poll by a good margin, but I still side with feral.  Seeing a four-legged pony straddling a motorcycle is much more unique and interesting in my eyes than anthro.  And I know someone else mentioned print sales, so for what it's worth, I would genuinely be interested in a print featuring a pony version, but most likely not anthro. 

Would that I could throw enough money at you to be able to please both sides of the argument, but alas, all I have is my two cents.  ;-)

Draw both.  Whichever you like better, post.  Put the other in your scraps folder

Well in this case I planning on a large, color fully finished piece that I will be hoping to sell. Either one works for me. What I want to know is if a potential buyer amongst my followers might have a preference?

If I had the cash,  I'd probably say Anthro

Hmmm.... both options really sound nice. And pointing back to Cruising to Canterlot, it would make sense, at least to me, to book end it with an anthro form to make it a nice even one to one. :)

Though of course, seeing a feral Celestia in some sweet biker threads just sounds like a winning idea in itself.

Ahhh the pain of choices! XD

Four legs Good.  Two legs Meh. ;)

I vote Anthro only because it doesn't look like you have altered the controls (as you have done with other pieces) to make it more plausible that Celestia (as a pony) is actually using that wonderful machine.

That's something that would resolved depending on which form I go with. If I go full 4 legged it would be closer to  Cruising to Canterlot by Baron-Engel Although I will not I only did minimal changes to the handle bars in that piece. Most of the changes were in the pedal controls.

well then... change one vote to feral.

...and then color it with some awesome background.

...and then make it a print.

...and then shut up and take my money.

Hmmm. I will admit prints sales for me have been poor for me, but I will keep that in mind. I seem to sell more original art than prints.

Whatever you decide, I wish you the best.
Makes me wish I followed through with my Mane 6 motorcycle idea...
Too many ideas... too little follow through on my side.

May you continue to enjoy success in your art endeavors.

Those who went with anthro are cowards who shake In fear of the shear artistic awesomeness of an animal riding a motorcycle.

I feel both have merits having done anthro for 20+ years before discovering MLP and I love both anthro and show style/ 4 legged.

Mainly a joke about animals riding motorcycles there, killer.
