What was the good doctor up to during the Crystal War timeline? Leading a combat engineer squad, of course! Just some speculation based on Season 5's The Cutie Remark. Based on a mashup of the Matt Smith Doctor Who (the hair) and TF2's engineer.

The rest of his squad is coming soon!

(THIS IS PROBABLY A STUPID QUESTION)
But how do you draw the manes to look like they do in the show? Ugh...I feel so stupid.

Are you looking for advice specific to vectoring, or just in general?

It's actually pretty tricky coming up with an original pony hairstyle that looks decent. I think for my Limestone Pie, Marble Pie, and Doctor vectors, each went through about 2-3 versions each before I found something I was happy with.

You have to keep in mind that a pony's hair is essentially a narrow stripe that goes from their forehead to the lower back of their neck. It's just that some have the hair styled to be more human-like. For these Crystal War models especially, they will likely be skipping most of the styling and going with something utilitarian or more unkempt, so I tried to keep the hair relatively short and stiff.

The Doctor's hair in his normal look has some overlapping V-shaped elements within it if you look at it closely. I kept similar elements in this version and basically reversed it from backward-swept spikes to forward-swept. The goggles also help to hide his hairline and improve the look.
