skinny style by Holivi skinny style by Holivi
I know my style is not everyone likes. in your view, my pony too skinny. but I can not do too realistic ponies, because then gets lost cartoon look. And if my pony would be skinny, then their bones should be visible. But my pony such physique. Why you can not imagine that they all are not sick anareksiya?it's a cartoon! So many different shapes and sizes.Well, yes, sometimes my pony too skinny, but I try not to repeat similar in the other arts. Mac turned feminine, agrees. maybe because I am his first time draw in that style.

decided to show you my style. I know you write an again about skinny physique.I have experience in drawing people(I graduated from art school with distinction) and this support has helped me to create this style such that it looks like lively and cartoony simultaneously. sorry for the very very bad EnglishХ_х
I authorize the use of my style

I'm a huge fan of your style! It's very "you", and the style alone is makes you stand out among several pony artists <3

I like the skinny and long legged style.

Pinup artists knew that guys liked subjects with long legs.
There is a famous pinup picture in which the photographer adjusted the
legs of the subject to make them longer. That picture became very famous.

Thanks for the guide.

Beautiful work!  I love how you draw them!

This style is beautiful! Why would someone try to critcize it for being too "skinny" ?? It's obviously a cartoon style, they should look at some of the other styles floating around out there. I would LOVE to try emulating this style some time.. I will show you if it works! ^  ^

I love your style :) It's very you and that's good! Keep doing what YOU want and don't let people bully you c: If they don't like it then they can go elsewhere while the rest of us enjoy your beautiful artwork
mushroomjardin Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013
I love your unique style! and I agree that cartoons can be skinny. I don't see people complaining about the Adventure Time noodley people.

Your style is a very enjoyable blend of realism and cartoon proportions. Anyone who fails to understand cartoons often diverge from reality in shape has still much to learn.
Cerberus05 Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I simply LOVE your style! And can't find any reason why someone would criticise it...but oh well, people are weird, don't mind them! Your style is amazing!!
nihhal Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2013
I think your style is so unique because of this 'skinny style'.
You are my definetly favourite artist, I love your arts.

Raethiance Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Your style is very lovely Holivi, very admirable work.  Every artist has their own "unique" style of art.  Your style seems simple (looks easy to others to do for their own drawings) and cute when just looking, but when others attempt it, it is a good challenge because it is more complicated than they originally guessed.  I personally haven't had the chance to try out your style yet, just for fun, but I would like to soon!  Thank you for the illustration on skinny style :)
g-master-artist Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
lol, i like your style, gives that unique cartoon-ish look to it while still keeping the proportions just about right i guess and i see what you did there at the bottom right corner :XD:
darklight436 Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013
I've been trying to learn your style for week, with failure. thank you, this will help immensely, I hope to take your style and morph it into something original for myself :D

I personaly love your style. I'd even say it's one of my favourites.
I love the elegant figures and expressions of your ponies.
THesla Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
aw, i like that style! it's all about cartoon in the end anyway, so why care too much if they look skinny?
InnerBushman Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2013
Your style is lovely. Don't care if it's skinny or not.
Keep up the good work!

opus-13 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013
People are complaining about your style? I guess I'm not surprised, but that's still pretty sad. Personally, I love your style! It's very unique, fluid, fun, and captivating. It caught my attention the moment I saw it and I've been enjoying it ever since. You do great work and I always look forward to seeing your next piece! Try not to let the negative responses bother you. I know they must be frustrating, but it's just their opinion and you should keep doing whatever you like. ^_^

This is almost kinda how I draw my ponies! :D
whatIFitsALLaLIE Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013
I love your style, its pretty cool. i wouldn't change it based on the taste of other people. granted, skinny people perpetuate an unattainable stereotype and impact negatively on the self esteem of many impressionable people, but i feel that cartoon ponys are not people at all, and your work ends up looking elegant and dainty.
ArbiterGirl Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I actually really like your style. 

It's endearing and interesting. I can tell you're having fun when you're drawing. c:

Please, keep it up!

Telaros Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2013
I've always loved your style, the human like figure made them stand out. Allowed them to do things more interesting and more common to what we experience in our own lives. I know now after looking through the comments that I wasn't the only one to think Mac was feminine, but that doesn't make me asking the question of was he boy or girl make me feel any less bad.

You did give Big mac a more box shaped V torso espanding as you got higher to the shoulders, but I believe it was mostly in his facial features that gave him a more feminine look. I love the water color looks of your work. It really brings out the warmth in your works.

Apologies if I contributed to the bad feels. I did not mean to offend like some of the other more blunt commentors. Thanks for sharing this reference guide though.
