These are hair and eye sketches from official art that I used to get a sense for how to draw the lines. The specific curvature was harder than I thought so I'm glad I started with this before going to the real thing.
I am having a terrible time with the eyes. Is there any trick to making the 'high point' of the eye off-center? The rounded eyes are just so hard!
I've learned a ton from these sketches, and i've gotten pretty good at rarity. Although my pinkie pies are the scariest things ever made - I keep trying to make her eyes look 'excited' or 'cute', but the dark lines and my difficulty with the shap and color mean that she looks like a serial killer.
