anatomy hates me by Syntactics anatomy hates me by Syntactics
What am I doinggg?

Looks like it's time to learn how to draw... you know... humans ugh. The anatomy is just all over the place here. Just gotta keep practicing. You're free to correct me though.

Roseluck and Spitfire look so show-accurate it's killing me.

I think they look great, personally. You can tell who they are without any doubt and they look cute :)
You also used my favorite pony, so im being extra critical of your work, and i still love it!

Favorite pony? I'm going to take a wild guess and say... Roseluck Spitfire. Which is great, because I'm working on something (hopefully!) epic for her. Look forward to this H&H Day!

So excited! Just nothing with her and Soarin, or really soarin at all...otherwise, excited!

Don't tell anypony else, but I really, really dislike Soarfire. I am so with you there. SpitDash is more my thing, naturally! Soarin' himself isn't so bad, but drawing him is painful.

Secret is safe with me, lol. I have no problem with SpitDash, though i prefer to ship Sparks with another background pony. Even attempting to plan a fic around it, just way down on the list. Regardless, Soarin isn't right for her for a number of reasons. Im not planning any vectors with Soarin, and i cant draw to save my life.

Oh? Who do you ship her with, if I might ask?

Personally, I view Soarfire as one of those celebrity romances that last at most a month. Done purely for publicity and nothing more. And I can never get Soarin' to look right; there's that too.

I like to ship her with Rainbow because they can challenge each other better than AJ can. But I'm an Appledasher at heart and so I don't ship Rainbow with Spitfire regularly as it feels like cheating. Sometimes, yeah, but mostly I ship Rainbow with AJ.
But I'm considering a fanfic where I explore a relationship between Spitfire and Vinyl. Vinyl would absorb the lifestyle that Spitfire can provide, but Vinyl is another battle entirely for me. I dont agree with what the fandom has done to her either. I can explore this with you, but it'd have to be a note.
That's an interesting view for SoarFire, not something I've seen them compared to before. It actually would be a great intro for a more adult fanfic about Spitfire, where she is viewed as our Paris or Lindsey but she is actually Emma Watson perhaps, sweet and innocent. But now I'm rambling, my apologies.
I've never tried to draw a stallion before, but I'm curious as to what problems you are having. I'm unsure I have anything to help, especially at your level of expertise, but I can attempt if nothing else. I love helping kind people on DA, they remind me that some simply create art because they love it :)

If your drawing humanized, its fine, but if your trying to go for more human than pony, definitely put more meat on the appendages, I draw anime, and overly skinny characters can work sometimes, like Lelouch, Ouran High, or Gundam , and others work with more realistic proportions, like Naruto, Bleach, or Final Fantasy. Regardless, you pull of all your styles with a finesse that makes it look good disregarding any mistakes, good job and keep drawing!

Thank you!

Yeah, I really didn't know what I was doing. Hopefully, I'll find time to really work out a proper style for anthro. But thanks so much for the advice!
