Two Years of Ponies by Karzahnii Two Years of Ponies by Karzahnii
I redraw my first piece of MLP fan art every year on this day. I feel 2013’s art direction was mostly “less is more" - I have a lot less time to actually draw fan art, so when I do I pardon details and precision to be as time efficient as possible. I used simpler lines and colours, but I think they convey the image just as well (if not, better).

I like this idea of redrawin' yer first piece of fan art each year.
And as ta yer gradual increase in talent, I REALLY likes where it's going!
I just hope I can get a similar grasp on this as ya have with color and lines~

As I'm a HUGE fan of your most recent art style, I say they all look quite lovely. :) Amazing how far we've come in just a couple years watching a little girls' show.

2011 - RD had a broken hindleg.
2012 - the leg was okay

I still like the very bright, soft shading from the 2012 version, but the 2013 version of the coloring is cool, too. The posing and expressions are also better in the newest one. That said, the biggest difference is how you learned the proper rear leg anatomy between 2011 and 2012. LOL

They all look great, but Rainbow's leg anatomy in the third one is a little too off for my taste.

frong Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2013
That's because that's the oldest version, from before they got the anatomy right.

They all look nice, but the third one does seem easier on the eyes as its colors looks just a bit more relaxed and its easier on the eyes.

Great job sir and thank you for continuing to share your work!

I feel like you worked harder in the second one o: plus your latest doesn't have any shading underneath the ponies so it looks like they're floating xD I like it though c:

You know, I just assumed the top one was the first one, and like that one the best, bu because it was first I thought you had just chosen to over time favor a more pastel style. All three are lovely.
