Q. How is this much a guide?
A. Well, I suppose it's not in some ways? The idea I'm aiming for is pointing out spots where you can try out style modifications or where you can find ways to make how you draw characters unique from one another, at least, it's more prominent in this part than the previous one. Any actual "detailed" guides I'm leaving that up to every other guide/tutorial/references/etc.
Q. When will you complete the wing half of this part?
A. Uh, once I figure out what to mention, I was having trouble thinking which parts of the wings to talk about.
I might need to refine the horn half.
Q. When will you get part 3 and such up?
A. No promises =

(Copy-Paste) This isn't 100% show-accurate, there's a bit of my style lingering here and there, but nonetheless the purpose is to show how parts relate, and how things look by seeing multiple perspectives on it. The best way to learn is to 'understand' rather than to 'copy' so having the whole idea should hopefully be helpful in achieving the former.
Everything can be changed when seeing different styles; one's personal style can be found through experimentation, but as well observing a combination of favorite artists. It can end up being show-like, or as drastically changed as possible while still somehow the same old ponies we know. What's important, is to make sure that things are still in the right place - you can't use style as an excuse to have the mouth above the snout for example. I gave a few examples of modifications, but that's just a few out of many variations people have done to each part . . . ! Try and experiment what works best for ya when you can.
