Plane Sailing: THE FOOT UPDATE, part 1
So after over a year of drawing double amputees, I’ve decided to just start drawing the characters with feet, because that means shoes. And poses that make a little more physical sense, and not having to deal with the hideous balancing act that is digitigrade/unguligrade anthros. Also, outfit changes!
I figured Twilight Sparkle would be one of those types who tried on the whole goth thing as a teenager, it didn’t really stick, but she kept some of the trappings anyway, like the spike belt, the choker and the long knuckle gloves. The long converse probably aren’t very goth, but doodling her with them is what started this idea. The original plan was that she dressed like a Homestuck troll (zero fashion sense) but that just got boring quickly. The other deadlight sparkles don’t really change much. A few of them get sandals or boots like AJ’s.
For Rainbow Dash I went with more of a skate punk look (I figured the whole leather-and-jackboots deal was more Gilda’s thing - casts their falling out in a different light when you look at it as a punk purist ditching someone for turning heathen!) So, keeping the cargo pants and bomber jacket, and adding skate shoes, chains and belts on the pants, and knuckle gloves. I considered a design on the t-shirt, but since Dash’s hair is already so busy, it would force me to spend a lot of time on her. I may change my mind and slap a Wonderbolts logo on that shirt though.
Applejack just gets more detail on the shirt, some boots, and her jeans got stone-washed a bit. Not much you can do with the farm girl. I also turned the brim of the hat up because the hat brim and ear were nagging my sense of physicial space.
