MLP - Mane Designing Basics Study by DShou MLP - Mane Designing Basics Study by DShou



Note - This one is obviously done in my style unlike before but it still presents the basic information used to build the mane-styles of both canon-level of detail and to a more detailed style, this is mostly because I used the information I've learned from creating Anime/Manga hair and adapted it to here so there's also some types of mane style techniques not used in the show such as the bang 'going-over' thing or some of the accessories.

I may occasionally post some new studies/notes on Ponies and General Drawing stuff, you can check them out in my gallery folder here - [link] or when I submit them to the MLP-ATG-Alumni tutorial folder.

I may also go into the other creatures of the MLP universe, but anywhere beyond won't be posted in the group folder.

Check out the MLP-ATG-Alumni's Drawing Tutorial Folder here - [link] and perhaps join the group's weekly themed drawings as well if you haven't.



My Little Pony : Friendship is Magic series and characters belongs to the Hub & Hasbro

The third hairstyle at the bottom kind of looks like Ponymote: Trotting Pitch's mane style.

Do you think you could do a tutorial for tails?

I'm not sure I got an idea how to do that properly as it's small notes ='3

First step is knowing the tail comes from the 'spine', and it's all 'hair' from there other than a little tail dock which is optional based on your style - from there comes creativity what to do next

Ooh, very cool! I've always had trouble coming up with new mane styles that looked too complex, or weird. I'll give this another look when I'm trying out something new again!

Erm - Look for a flame tutorial then?

It's medium and style-dependent as well as the fact it's an effect, so I wouldn't be able to make a study guide of it myself.
