The Mane Six ~ Human Paperchildren by MiMikuChair The Mane Six ~ Human Paperchildren by MiMikuChair
Well after seeing the stats of my previous paperchild drawing ..and the reactions saying: you should make more paperchildren brought me on a idea for making a paperchild group of all the ponies from My little pony: friendship is magic AKA. The mane six ;v; ..

This was very fun to make xD ..quite the work though lol, cutting isn't very easy .3. but luckily I have a small scissor QvQ
I suppose my copic coloring is kinda improving ..except for some parts =v='

now I could point out the bad points about those paperchilds ..but nope not gonna do it this time lol then I would be able to write a whole book about it :T
..oh and Fluttershy looks the worst =v='
and all those paperchilds look better in real life orz

btw: I got the BG thingies from Winx magazines xD ..I refused to throw those thingies away because I liked their patterns =v=' ..but hey this time they actually become somewhat useful xD

used material:
-marker paper
-some kind of thicker paper dunno what kind >w>
-fineliner 0,05
-gray pencil :'D
-copic markers-
-white paint marker
-normal scissor
-small scissor

anyway hope ya like and hope you think those charas actually look accurate to the real ponies xD ..
I also have drawn their cutie marks on their clothes QvQ

EDIT: added more brightness to the picture since the picture was quite dark
also check out the paperchildren version of Vinyl scratch and Octavia :3

Why did you make them all look like clones?
MiMikuChair Featured By Owner May 19, 2014  Student Digital Artist
clones are cool :)
Bulbaderp Featured By Owner May 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
yeah, but real people look unique.

If a little girl sees this, she will think that starving herself is the only way to happiness.

Yea I get your point~

Well it seems you really wanted me to explain all this, so here comes a wall of text ;)

Anyway putting unseriousness aside
I'll firstly explain the fact why these girls are all clones of each other

It's called the ''same face syndrome''. This is something many ''kawaii/moe artists'' suffer, this includes me. As you probably have guessed from the name it's about us always drawing the same kind of characters who rather look the same. 
In fact the whole ''moe anime'' art style is suffering this, well for a big part at least. 
I'll send you some examples………………

Ok in official art it's not as bad as it is here but that's simply because I am an amature ^^;
But as you can see it's not uncommon that this happens even in official art.

So even though these same faces wasn't what I was aiming for, it's not such a big problem because I was aiming for this cute moe art style. 
I'm not saying it's a good art style well artistically wise, but I made this thing for fun :) not in order to be a good artist. I can't even call myself a real artist now.. for now I am still that girl who likes to draw cute things.

This same face syndrome has gotten a slight bit of improvement lately though but the same face syndrome still remains on my drawings :P

About the bodies, there is also a syndrome for that haha. As you probably have guessed it's called the ''same body'' syndrome. This is something professional moe/cute art don't have in a such as bad degree as for example these paperchildren. In official moe art characters often have different heights and boob sizes but aside from that, there is barely anything different.

I can only explain the same body syndrome on this picture as me lacking skill to make other body types than super thin nearly anorexic girls. Also the media, manga/anime art in general influenced me like this that I started to prefer skinny looking characters. It also helps I am rather skinny myself ^^; 


Like I said, for now I can't call myself an artist and my gallery is currently filled with cute/moe manga/anime art either made for people who love this style or me just drawing for fun. 
However I want to aim at becoming a real artist sometime ^^ I can easily acknowledge that my drawings are really flawed right now and need a lot of work. I would like to step away from the manga/anime art for a bit and was actually planning on starting a huge improvement project soon where I practice various things such as realistic art, other artstyles, animals, backgrounds etc.. 

So I actually appreciate you pointing out what I did wrong right here :) it made me realize better what kind of stuff I have to improve in the future ^^

sorry for the wall of text :P
I just wanted to say this and I hope you understand the reason of these flaws now~ 
If you have anything else to say/ask feel free to do so ;)
