ORIGINAL Pony Vectors_Practice by Tsitra360 ORIGINAL Pony Vectors_Practice by Tsitra360
Practicing using Illustrator, here's some of my REAL attempts at pony vector illustrations. 100% original, you won't find these poses anywhere in the show. (I forgot fluttershy had a similar pose in the show, but it definitely isn't the same)

10 minutes per sketch, 1.5 hours on average for each pony.

You guys want the original vector files? I'll supply them if you want. And let me know what you think. Is this close to what it would've looked in the show?

Coming Soon: Speed Painting Videos on my process making 4 of these ponies.

Are you still interested in in critique as to the show-accurateness of these vectors? I can see that you've probably moved on by now, but I'd be willing to offer my advice if you're still interested.

I think these are good enough to be in the show. Something annoys me about twilights face though.

thank you. I think I know what may be bothering you. I made the iris of her right eye fill the size of her eye, while making the iris in the left eye shrinked. It was intentional, I wanted to make this expression O_•

That and the eyebrows almost touching. I think that type of expression (using the eyes, the rest of the expression is fine) is better when you can see more of the face, good idea though.

Oh, and that too. Two days later as I looked at it again sideways…I was like, "the eyebrows!" haha :XD:

I really hate how when you look at a drawing for so long it looks good, but when you flip it or come back to it you can see all the mistakes. X.x

These are really well done. They look like they do in the show :)
Applejack, Pinky Pie and Twilight Sparkle look fantastic. Rainbow Dash also looks great XD
However, Fluttershy's pose seems just a bit awkward. Her hindlegs just don't look right, but that would be tricky pose to get. And Rarity's horn has a line at the base.

But yeah, that's pretty much it. Like I said, they're really well done, and I'm just being picky. With a bit of animating, you could make your own show or something XD

Oh man, it was a hard pose to pull off. From the show it seems to be that way but each time I find a scene where they are sitting like that it is always different, yet it works. So I winged it……..woah, no pun intended. ::XD::

And thank you. I don't know about animating, if I do I need to build up a Symbol Library and code a pony puppet so I can make it easier on myself, just like the MLP animators do.

It would be pretty time consuming, and I can imagine that the slightest mistake would result in a lot of frustration. It might be best to leave it to the professionals, but still, they look like they just popped out of the show :)

What exactly is a vector. I can't really find a good definition.

:icontsitra360:
Tsitra360 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2011
Seems like you got the answer :) But in summary, its mathematically lines that makes the art. It will allow me to make the art at any size! So I can print this the size of a building if I want and don't lose clarity……that would be awesome :XD:

thank you, and its pretty easy to do. I looked at some tutorials online about Illustrator. I recommend watching the ones about the Blob brush tool and Magic Paint Bucket Tool. They were my main tools creating this because I could just simply use my tablet to create the lines without fooling with the pen tool. What's awesome is that I can use an actual eraser on the vector lines and Illustrator automatically makes new Vector points for me.

Wow, excellent work. If only I could use Illustrator as well as you. Of course you need the sketches first, something I cannot do. Otherwise I would have sketches and vector art of Ash, Blaze, Andromedi, Karen and Evonne.

AWESOME CHRIS!

why thank you, and it isn't that hard :). I literally just drew those lines, Illustrator makes Vector lines so easy. Example: I can literally use an eraser to erase portions of the lines and make end points…Illustrator just makes new Vector Points and Curves for me.

i will explain why

at first i wasnt going to bother watching it at all, because i thought it would just be another one of those animated programms that fails so badly like all of the ones i see now-a-days. but my good friend William Skitch, has watched the series, he really liked it, he told me about it and requested to give it a try watching. now hearing that this programm is kewl from someone who is a hardcore heavy metal person, same age as me, and is partially emo, rather makes it sound like MLP is worth while watching, so i decided to try the first few episodes, and after that, i suddenly started watching more and more, by then i realised i could not stop watching them, it was like an addiction to watch em. how were they? i can most certainly say that My little pony has proven to be much much better then the shitty cartoons we see in this modern time. voice acting is brilliant, storyline's to all the episodes are twisty and unpredictable. the characters are lovable. its even made me laugh on almost every episode. not only that, i look down at the comments on youtube of all the episodes, most of them were people saying how they are some age above 15, and thats true, basically all of the people on youtube watch this programm when they are between the age of 15-24 and some comments were how we all somewhat enjoy the programm, reading it, i understood why i like it. its hard to explain but i know it gives me memories of how awesome animated programms were when i was alot younger. they were much better then, and the new my little pony basically resembles to be one of the last shows to have that detail of how programms were in the past..

in other words, my little Pony is awesome for all the people between the age of 7 to 25, regardless to what gender they are
