Anthro styles by Holivi Anthro styles by Holivi
to be honest, I do not like hoofs on feet, but I was interested to try drawing in a new style. here I tried to draw hooves as I personally like. maybe I will continue to work on this style and if people like it, I will take commissions

so, what do you think about it?

I'm with footsies.

I find them more relatable... so to speak of course

I like the hoofies, especially that pegasus in the middle.

I'd say its an interesting take on horse anthro legs, and the way you have them drawn atm feels like they're wearing something akin to high heels combined with platform shoes.

It's not the most realistic take on anthro legs, but it's not bad to look at. I'd say experiment with hoof sizes too, as smaller hooves may either compliment your figures, or it may look weird. 

And I'm sure you've studied a plenty of horse anatomy before, but I always thought the Spirit cheat sheets for horse anatomy were fucking golden.

I love the way you stylize your anthros! Horses, ponies, and ungulates in general are hard to anthromorphize but I think you've got the style down pat. I honestly like it best when anthro horses have feet instead of hooves as the feet make more sense to me when it comes to walking for anthromorphic animals. You should draw what you like the best and don't worry too much about what others think. Keep up the wonderful work!

Love this style! You easily turn some of these into super cute YCHs or something :D

I think it's actually quite an interesting take on how to place hooves on more humanistic ponies :3 

Most of the time, people will do a fully human body, and occasionally sprinkle on some horse-like features (ears, tail, slightly horse-like face). They rare mess with the legs/feet, perhaps because it's easier not to. 

I like what you've done, and think it merits further exploration.

I much prefer hooves! there's something Uncomfortable about anthro horses with human feet dfjgh

it looks really nice!

I personally like the hooves you're going for.  To me it best fits with the 'anthro' idea.  The body is already very human, and they have human hands. Keeping the feet as 'hooves' maintains the 'pony' look while still being anthro.

However, someone else pointed out that because it IS your art, maybe you could make that an option.  Your style is very cute and animated.  Very fun and not sexualised.  Keep up the awesome work!

They're all so cute. The hoof feet look great when you draw them like this.
These are all super cute, and you make the hooves fit very naturally.

I deffinitely love your anthro style, its not oversexualised like a lot of other styles and its honestly really pleasing to look at, such nice poses *w*

I've always admired your hooves as feet, and I love this personal spin you're trying, but ultimately it's your art and you should do what you feel most comfortable doing!
I love the middle choice you experimented with here, though :)

You're great at drawing bodies!  None of these poses look awkward at all, it all flows so nicely.  I think the hooves look cute the way you draw them, but draw what YOU like!  As for commissions, maybe have hooves as an option but not a default?

thanks, about the default function is a good idea
