Vector Guide #1: High quality pony vectors by Quasdar Vector Guide #1: High quality pony vectors by Quasdar
Time: 3.5 hours
Made with Inkscape.
Vectors used:

The Date by

Blanket Woona by

Part two: Nodes and outlines

Part three: Landscapes and special effects

This also works for vectors made from other drawings or your own sketches. Frames from the show are used as an example because that's what most people do.

Using the show as a reference or looking at other vectors from the show is a great way to learn.

Discussion posts- r/mylittlepony and r/mlpvectors

This is a tutorial for people interested in making fan art that looks exactly like the show, so please feel free to ignore it if you have no interest in that. I'm not going to try to convince you to watch ponies, I submitted this only to pony groups.

Updated Oct. 9 2012. Overhauled a lot of the wording, added some new images, fixed the slightly blurred images. And if you didn't see it already, there is now a part two to this that goes over how to make outlines and use nodes.

It is the 11th button on the left side. Click and drag the cursor and then it will curve.

The link to the 1080p episodes is blocked how can I get them now?

Basically what I did was copy the link location, paste it in something like notepad, then copied JUST the outgoing link itself, then pasted it into my url bar! :>

I screenshot it for those who want to see:

OMG. Thanks. I've been looking to download them in HD but the ones I see on youtube are either flipped or a part of the screen is cut-off.

Thank you so much! I just got Inkscape and I have NO idea how it works. Again, thank you. (I'm doing Crazy Pinkamena for a test XD. I would try simpler like Applebloom but I wanna try Pinkie first.)
