How to draw Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony TV series

In our post How to draw cartoon characters, we covered some general guidelines for drawing a cartoon character and how it differs from a realistic one. Now let’s try to draw a particular cartoon character. Let it be Twilight Sparkle from the animated TV series My Little Pony.Twilight sparkle drawing tutorial

Little ponies are lovely creatures that live in the magical land of Equestria. They are kind, funny, friendly, and there are certain relationships among them, just like among people. The country is ruled by two sisters, beautiful ponies: Princess Celestia and Princess Luna. Among other characters are ponies Fluttershy, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle. They love to sing, dance, party and have fun. They are fun to be with!

How do these cartoon ponies differ from real ponies? First, they are colorful, and they may have a rainbow-tinted mane and tail. Also, those ponies that have become alicorns – winged unicorns, have a horn and wings, which, of course, real ponies don’t have. Besides, each pony has its own cutie mark that appears on a pony’s flank. Like little fashionistas, each pony has her own hairstyle, and the most expressive on their “faces” are huge eyes, which can be not only flirty hooded but also wide open. How to draw eyes like that you can learn in the post How to draw manga characters.

And now let’s try to draw one of the pony beauties – Twilight Sparkle:

Step 1.
Draw auxiliary lines to mark the general outlines of the drawing. how to draw twilight sparkle
