After you make the shapes, how do you crop them onto the pony? Or do you have to draw them perfectly to perfectly fit?

They were made to fit. I doubt if they were perfect, but I just did the best I could.

Thanks for the guide! I was pretty stumped on how to make the crystal effect, and I'd completely forgotten about the little sparklies. You may want to mention the fact that all crystal ponies are earth ponies, though.

I'm not sure if I'll ever make a crystal pony, but if I do this will be the guide that I use, I'm going to add it to my favorites so that I can find it easily.

how do you make the layers? Sorry but I'm new to this sort of stuff.
Reply
:iconvector-brony:
Vector-Brony Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
In the tabs at the top of Inkscape you have one labeled layers. Click it then go down to layers and click. You should get a layers toolbar at the side of your screen. You use that to make your layers.

I know how to do that but how do you select the part of the pony that you want to make as the layer? I try selecting the part of the pony but it selects the whole picture instead.

I knew how to do the crystal effect, but I didn't knew that a crystal pony has a gradient going through the lines of the manes.

That info is going to be helpful in the future :)

That's how I worked it out. Otherwise it would take forever to put in diffrent colours all over the place
