Drawing Ponies with Whatsapokemon, Legs

1K Favourites
Here is part two of the tutorial series. This one goes into a lot of detail, and can hopefully dispel a few misconceptions about pony anatomy.

If you can not see flash for some reason here is a PDF version: www.dropbox.com/s/2aik7f20avzi…

Please let me know if you have any suggestions for changes/improvements, of if you'd like anything clarified.

Big thanks to Onsaud:icononsaud: for proof reading and suggesting things that I forgot to mention.
Also big thanks to SpaceKingofSpace:iconspacekingofspace: for the awesome anon-pony vector.

Thank you so much mate, mlp made me draw again, even when I thought I didn't had enough time with school etc.
Had some real trouble with anatomy even after some practicing, you don't know how much this helped me.

This is great.

Some of the links (Onsaud's, egophiliac's) don't seem to be alive anymore, which is a bit of a shame.
