Aww!~ This tutorial was really fun! Okay, today, we will all be learning how to draw in the popular style of the "Heart-Shaped" Pony. As you all probably see, the pony has a nice, heart-shaped mane that flows into one tip. This style is quite popular, and it's not too hard to draw, if you know how to do it! ;) But, as always, there are a few things to this tut. You don't have to add the horn, nor the wings, whether your drawing calls for it or not. The hair can also be drawn more free-handedly, but this is the official design. So have fun everyone!~ See you next time!

This is an optional step, depending on what kind of pony you are drawing. Horn, wings, or both. You want to draw those in now. If you're drawing an Earth Pony, just move on to the next step.
