Chibi Ponies

Two sketches, chibi style: Fluttershy standing, and Rarity sewing

“We want to express reality without an overly realistic depiction, and that’s about appealing to the human imagination.”
Isao Takahata, animated film director at Studio Ghibli

Of course, when drawing candy colored ponies “realistic” is a pretty relative term, but I usually (try to) stay fairly close to the show animation style. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I think that experimenting is important for artistic development, and the quote inspired me to actually do it. “Chibi ponies” was just a random idea that sounded like fun, so I went with it. What do you think?
