I did a pretty thorough study of Cadence. She is very strangely proportioned... and not consistently proportioned throughout the episode... She has Luna's sizing for her head and limbs, but is smaller than luna...
It does come off a little weird in pencil sketch
I may shrink her head a bit when I do this in digital... other than that, and adjusting the hind legs a bit, I think this will look good.
Her proportions are weird, and tend to change a bit during the show. the only ideas I can think of is to put less roundness on her forehead(like slant it a little) and give her smile more profile (if needed and appropriate) This may work or it may not. hopes it helps
This is why I'm annoyed at people who think 'clopfics' or as I like to call it, My Little Pony Erotic Fan Fiction, are evil. We can safely assume ponies have sex. Why would it be so wrong to write about it?
I think the issue with many people is that the like to ficus on the cute and cuddly aspects of the show, and that whole line of reasoning runs counter to their thinking.
I'm kind of a realist on this... The show has hinted that much of the natural processes that occur in real life (child birth, death ect) are present in equestria. However, the more 'explicit' stuff is hidden from view, in the privacy of their own homes.
That's why I never venture down the R34 road. This is about as far as I will go, and this leaves a lot of room for interpretation. The best artwork, IMO, is the art that allows the watcher to draw the conclusion they want.
Yeah, there's no reason to get explicit. My only point is, to say it's wrong or to simply act like it doesn't happen (as some do) is annoying.
Besides, cute, cuddly and sex can all go together if you do it right. The problem is when it gets gratuitous. For instance, I remember reading a story where Spike and Fluttershy got it on, my only complaint was, it seemed a bit rushed, but it was kinda sweet, if a bit weird. Then the writer wrote a second chapter where Twilight enters the room...
AND THEN THEY ALL FUCKED!
NO Yelling Bird! That's just wrong. Basically at that point it got gratuitous, and I hated it.
I think one can explore pony sexuality without going down that road. We can write about two ponies, who love each other, having sex, without it feeling like a porno!
NB: There's a difference between 'porn' and 'erotica'.
