How to Draw Twilight Sparkle

Ponies are fun to draw and create your own stories for.  Whether you have experience in drawing them or not really doesn’t make a difference as long as you give it all you’ve got and have fun doing it.  Drawing is not something that should be a chore, but something that should be enjoyed.

Today we are going to talk about how to draw the pony known as Twilight Sparkle.

Draw Twilight Sparkle: Start with Twilight’s head

As in all of the other articles that teach you how to draw the various ponies, this one starts with draw a circle for you to use as a guideline for the head.  A bit lower on the paper and to the side, you will need to draw an egg shape to be used as a guideline for the body.  Now that you have the basic guidelines we can move on.

Twilight Sparkle has a mane that is kind of different from the other ponies in that it is rather straight and stiff.  It does look great for her though.  For the part of the mane that comes over her forehead – the bangs – draw a sort of upside down bowl shape.  Then you will draw in the back of the neck as well as her ear.

Twilight Sparkle is also a unicorn so you will need to draw her horn as well.  Once you have that part done you can start making her face.  Draw the bridge of her nose and her snout.  From there you will start making the lines for her eyes.

Draw the eye shapes as well as the pupils and color them in.  Give her some lashes on both the top and bottom of the eyelids and then remember to sketch in the stripes for her horn.  You might want to finish detailing the ear at this point too.  Don’t forget to draw her mouth and nose!

Getting to the End of our Twilight Sparkle Drawing

Now you are ready to move on to her chest and neck.  While you are doing that, this is also a great time to give her a couple of front legs.  Sketch in the rest of the tail end of the pony and begin on the back leg.  Once you finish with both back legs you can draw in her tail which has a very high arch in it.

Finish with her mane which she wears extremely close to the neck and begin drawing in the lines for the strands of hair in her tail and her mane.

Twilight Sparkle has a 6 pointed star on her rear flank with smaller stars between the points of the star.  Draw this in.  If any of your guidelines are still showing, go ahead and erase them leaving you with a clean drawing.
