sometimes, yes i do! It's all dependent on what I need to achieve. Although they're easier to learn than a brush, Nibs are something I've never completely warmed up to... they can fight you depending on the type of board you are using... smoother board is better. The more texture a board has, the more likely the nib can pick up fibers and smear, or catch on the board itself. When you first get a nib out of the package, wave it gently a time or two over a candle or lighter... it helps it to hold ink better.

I really love Andy's treatment of Luna. Always so expressive and dynamic. And funny! Easily the best character in the comic series.

There are not enough words for how happy I am this exists. I loved your style ever since I read the comics (the best ones so far, too) and to have a reference sheet like this is just golden.

I've noticed a lot of this stuff and it's good to see some of it "codified." Another thing I've seen is that eyelashes pull double-duty as eyebrows when you don't need the arch effect; usually during implied face-hoof scenes.

I've also noticed that more 'evil' characters don't have a highlights in their eyes at all, but a gradient instead.

You may want to check me on that though, I noticed it back in season 1 and I don't know if it still happens in season 2.

reminds, have you ever noticed Trixie's eyes? ... they have just one highlight and different eye color ... but it's nice how these details affect their overall look

Yep, there are a few of the secondary ponies that have variations! Most of the males also only have one highlight, but for everyone it changes as needed for the expression.
