The one major thing I took from this. No matter what expressions the person/pony is making. The skeleton probably looks like it is smiling... creepily.

The only pony anatomy mistake that I ever point out when DA artists make it is when they make the rear legs bend like a human's. Other than that, I ignore any anatomical wonkiness for the exact reason you just stated - the show itself bends the rules for the sake of humor. See: RD's dance thingy from Mysterious Mare-Do-Well.

Also this helps a lot

lol, I think one of the reasons I started drawing in the style I use is because I could never draw the hind legs in the show style XD

This here is a great example of why I love your style.
It's a huge evolution on the original show's style and you actually take the anatomy into account unlike many other artists here that seem to work only for it to look good even if it doesn't make sense.

I did this before, when was thinking about the structure of your style:

But I have misunderstanding with parts when leg goes to back\spine…

Yeah, the anatomy isn't too great on those sketches.. that was around when I was first teaching myself Pony Anatomy ^-^

I have question — why are you draw it that way? Who inspires you?

The wing in the show wasn't wrong. That's just how fucked up her wing was from the accident. XD

It's a kid show and a cartoon, I think proper working anatomy was their last concern <:
it's supposed to look good, not work in real life.

But I like your rambling! As for the weird anatomical changes they suffer sometimes for the sake of animations, they're still far better off than G3 where they had some really weird anatomy and grabbed stuff with their hooves all the time.

Yeah I know that, I actually wrote on the page that I knew it was done for the sake of simple animation...
