SA: characters lineup [OUTDATED] by derpiihooves SA: characters lineup [OUTDATED] by derpiihooves
[Designs are outdated, please stay tuned for updated versions, thank you.]

hi there!

It's been a while, but I finally got some more work done on Starswirl Academy. Here's a lineup of the mane 6, showcasing their designs thus far which are, by the way, not final at all. That said, it'd be nice to have some constructive criticism on this so that we can put together something everyone can enjoy.

Check out the site!

I like that idea of AJ's hair looking that way...
I wish i had natural straight hair sometimes so I could do that hairstyles like that ;u;

This is really good though :)

Rainbow Dash is super cute in your style <3 It feels kinda weird to see her wearing a skirt though xD

thanks. :) It does feel pretty weird to draw a skirt on her, hehe.

No critics, just some ideas and own opinions:
I think Pinkies hair needs to be more fluffy. I like the color change though
Give Rarity some more accessoirs, she would try to stand out. The earrings are already a nice touch, but she most likely also would change the dress to be more... her!
Switch the boob size of Rarity and Fluttershy. Or is that just an accident that they look different? I think, Rarity should be the curvy one.
Fluttershy never stands verry straight, except if she got critters around her. Try to hunch her a bit without making her look stupid so you can develop the char in different scenes (oh that is so easy to say ^^)
I love Applejack in this pic, fits perfectly. The simple shirt shows her "manliness" very well!
Rainbow Dash is also great, she even has that winning sparkle in her eyes.
Twi looks a bit too shy but otherwise awesome.

All of this are just opinions of me and in now way should lessen your work. All you did here looks astonishingly awesome! Really looking forward for more :)

Quite possibly the best humanization of the characters, and yeah I'd love to play visual novel, this is awesome!

Overall, it's really nice. The variety in eye shapes, expressions and hair all give different personalities for the characters. The hair especially is good because of the little details within the hair and the hair isn't completely lines. Except for a few parts, the body is pretty proportional and gives off more aspects of the characters' personalities.

The only aspects I would critique about would the lack of shadowing and the disproportion of the shoulders and neck. The shoulders are a little narrow, not necessarily bad, but for some of them, narrow shoulders do not match the personalities they give off, so I suggest making some of them wider. The necks for all of them are way too narrow and tall. Making them wider would be better because necks are wide enough to touch the ears.

Like I said, this is really good. I'd love to see more detailed drawings.

Right, let me make a correction. For this style, the necks don't have to be as wide as the ears, but I would still suggest making them wider just because it feels too unnatural.

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!! But yeah, like you said, Pinkie's hair. And I LOVE Fluttershy's hair. But is Rarity's hair color going to be such a pink-toned purple? 'Cause it's DEFINITELY more blue-toned on the show.
