Doodle- Alternate Style Experiment by Earthsong9405 Doodle- Alternate Style Experiment by Earthsong9405
Just a quick doodle thing I did of Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, and Spike. As the title suggests, these doodles are experiments for an additonal style I'd like to draw in alongside the one I currently draw the pones in. This style will be a little more reminisent of the show's style but still maintain most of my own flare to it, such as the different facial features and more defined anatomy and so on. Short version? This is basically a style where the characters are shorter and a tad more caricatured. Something that's like my spin on the MLP characters, but a little faster and easier to draw (as well as include a wider audience when used for vending purposes at conventions). I kinda wanna call them Pint Pones. o3o

Anyway, these three were so much fun to draw. I'll eventually draw the rest of the Mane 6 and some BG characters in this style to continue developing it. But in the meantime... what do you guys think? O:

A very good blend of both your style and the show, works in both of your favors. Can't get over how squishy and fat Spike looks <3 Rainbow with ears back charging in is also very appealing.

It's great! There are cases where more cartoonish, cuter and caricatural style just works better than more realistic one, for the sake of a message and atmosphere of the image. But still your original style brings more life to the characters and I hope that you won't change your mind to use it as your main one.

Of course not; my current style won't cease to be the main one. This one is more or less just an additional style I wanted to have in case the mood ever strikes me to draw something very simplistic and more cartoonish than what I usually do. :3

I think they look adorable. They look like a chibi version of your original style. I'd love to see the mane six drawn in this alternate style of your :3

I'd certainly hope they don't look Chibi, though. I don't care much for the "chibi" style. >.>

They don't look completely chibi. They just look, let's say, much "cuter" than your usual style :3

I like it.  I still prefer your original style.  Those just look more appealing to me, more realistic.  These are cuter, but they lack the raw presence of your originals.  On a related note: I love "Pint Ponies".

Honsestly, I would totally do this style. I love the way that you did RD. :D I love the idea of calling them pint ponies. How big are they? IT defentely has an EarthSong twist to it. I love all your drawings,  keep up the good work. :D

They aren't that big; about the size of a Shetland pony in this style, around 2'5 feet at the shoulder, whereas they were an average of 4ft at the shoulder in my current style. c:

OMG OMG OMG!! :squee: They look adorable!! You're alternate versions look absolutely stunning!
Albeit I don't like them as much as your original forms but its nice for a different perspective on character designs :D
I think Twilight is fantastically cute~ :love: Dashy just looks awesome! And Spike is as cuddly as I love him to be :heart:
I prefer your original art, but this is a fresh breather for different ^^
Keep at it! I think having alternate styles are cool

Definitely not chibi. I honestly don't care about the chibi style so I won't ever draw that.

Very cute! I know a friend of mine who draws in a similar way, a tad realistic with the limbs and body shape but not in a ways, makes it easier and quicker to draw! It's a very convenient way if you wanna knock out a lot of drawings in a short time!

I approve of your style in any format!
