I love these sketches of yours so much. You never pick simplistic or overdone poses/scenes, and even the more commonly seen ones are executed in a remarkably good way.

#2 I guess he's trying to flirt with somepony. "Hey, filly. Come here often?"

#3 And if one were supporting Spitfire x Soarin', this could be Spitfire's reaction to the above if she is not the target.

#4 Tres magnifique, as Gustave would say.

#5 When the Wonderbolt captain is facehoofing, you know you didn't quite do things right.

#6 YES! Those open wings just sing joy and celebration, particularly when accompanied by this pose. So lovely.

#7 Looks like she doesn't quite appreciate ponies staring at times. Should've picked a less form-fitting uniform, then.

#8 Either rubbing her chin or brushing it or holding her head up. A complicated leg pose there, and an interesting expression she has. Nice indeed!

#9 Wonderbolts attack!

#10 She's that little bit affected by the sheer... sheerness of some things involving her that she's seeing right now.

Great job, I say!

So far, Soarin and SpitFire have been the only Wonderbolts who got a speaking role, right? What about that other one? I wonder if they're ever going to get a speaking role.
Though, SpitFire is much meaner than I thought she would be, as you see in WonderBolts Academy. :C

i was wonderin if you could give a fellow artist some tips and trick on how you get the back legs so right >_< i always have trouble with it and only get it right once in a blue moon. your help will be greatly apriciated (if you are willing to give it) ^^

I love them as always <3

:iconkp-shadowsquirrel:
KP-ShadowSquirrel Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks, I'm happy that you like them :)


Here are a few tips:

- Get familiar with the anatomy or real horses, especially the bone structure and orientation. (upper leg, lower leg, "foot", hoof)

- I often use screenshots from the show for reference :)

- when drawing the back legs, I often think of the shapes as an upside down egg with a tube (noodle) attached to it. (squished and stretched, depending on the direction from which it is seen) :D

Had to include Soarin's apple pie! :iconsoarinpie2plz: ohmigosh! This reminds me, I haven't drawn Spitfire yet! :iconsexiestponyplz: Though, that's probably because I'm still trying to get my wings to look just right. Your wings look awesome, do you have any tips for drawing them or breaking them down into simpler shapes?

Thank you :)

When drawing the wings, I often build them by drawing the bone structure first - upper arm, lower arm and fingers. The feathers spread out from these.

Looking at a few "how to draw wings" tutorials and getting familiar with the anatomy of bird wings helped me a lot. :)
