Pony Face Tutorial by CyberToaster Pony Face Tutorial by CyberToaster
Hey guys! As requested, I whipped up a face tutorial! Hopefully this one is a bit more show accurate than the body one, Hope this helps! Number one thing is practice. These forms are so simple that if your off by even a bit it's noticable.

ATTENTION!!!

I'm starting commissions again! I'll be doing things like OCs, fanfiction covers, and anything else you guys might want. Pony commissions start at $10 for a refined sketch and increase based on complexity. Shouldn't go above $30 or so at the most. Check out my Latest Journal for the details, or PM me with your requests!

Drawings faces can be tricky sometimes here and there but this is very helpful! :D

And the colts at 3/4 part is VERY helpful for me since they're pretty hard at times.

This helped so much in improving my drawings, I could never find a correct way to make the muzzle look natural.I'm still having the slightest problem with that, I'd make the upper part of the muzzle to small or the jaw line dropped when the mouth is close.Any suggestion on how I could fix this?

The pony head is damn close to a perfect circle. In some styles you'll see a little cheekbone in 3/4 or head-on, but the jaw will usually come directly from the lowest point on the circle. The muzzle is a little trickier, you just sort of have to keep trying until it feels right.

If you want show accuracy, draw from references. You're still drawing from flawed memory otherwise.

Thank you, oh thank you! I have NO consistency in faces at all! Is it, um... Is it okay if I print this out for personal use? I'm not gonna claim it as my own or anything, I just can't keep the faces right... It's frustrating. lol
