Something for the NATG's make up gallery (for Day 18 - acrobat or stable pony)! I'd originally done this on my own as an experiment in color schemes and extreme pony poses, but it worked out perfectly for that theme - I just had to finish it, and didn't have time when it was actually due :(

But, here it is now! Hope you enjoy!

And a year later I catch up on my dA alerts and find this.

It's funny. I've browsed some eight thousand pictures over the last few weeks, but this one caught my eye more than most. It gives me an "I want to be able to do that too"-itch like you wouldn't believe. Drawing something like this requires an understanding of anatomy; skeletons and muscles have always struck me as supremely boring to try to grok, but this--this isn't just impressive, it's *interesting*.

I really like this picture. The pose is contorted but believable and a lot of tension comes through in the image.

That hoof work. Everything looks amazing and strikingly neat o.o

Oh, goodness, that's kind of you to say so; I thought it was a little on the sloppy side, even after I cleaned up the sketch >.>

That is a really impressive pose! I think it would be a good while before I develop a sufficient understanding of pony anatomy to pull off something like that!

I'm sure you will, though! It just takes practice :)

Very interesting pose. For a moment I thought she was Scootaloo '^.^

Hah, yeah, the color scheme I picked out ended up being pretty similar. She's got the red hair stripeys and green eyes, though, so there's that (tiny) difference :P
