Pony Legs Tutorial by Assassin-or-Shadow Pony Legs Tutorial by Assassin-or-Shadow
Too many times have I seen some strange looking legs on ponies, so I thought some of you out there might find this helpful.

Tell me if the font is too small and I'll try to fix it.

Thank you! I see that 'human leg' shit everywhere and I'm always like "PONY LEGS DON'T WORK THAT WAY, YOU CLOD!".

This helped me a lot. I've never been particularly bad at legs, but they have always lacked emotion and depth. I took a sketchbook page to draw all of your examples here, and I think it was a great learning experience. Definitely a favorite.

"Give shape to their legs, don't make them the same width all the way down."
...Unless you're drawing King Sombra's legs.

I use as close to real horse anatomy as I can without being ugly. Yes joints are awesome though

An easy way I remember is the chip off a peice near the butt on the back leg. Then I go over and make it look nice

Holy smokes! I think this will help a lot. It makes sense looking at it, and thinking about it a bit. But I have a hard time getting my hand to listen.

more people need to see this.
I've come across so many pieces that are so good and I'm gonna fave it but then I notice the wonky leg anatomy and it ruins the whole thing :( (Especially the bottom left part with the ankle, that is a very common error)
