Well, Ialready knewthe difference,although thePonyCreatoris used byusers who have noknowledge ofvectorizationor at leastadvanced knowledgevectorizacion,so thePonyCreatorcan bevery usefulfor them,besides thisifan amateuruser can makean OCPonyCreatorand have amodel of yourOC, thatthencanplace an orderanyuserdeviantartand so tovectorizethisOCtomake it looka bitmore like acharacterthis series. Rememberthere will always beuserswho can notvectorizeandthis is asituationdimensionedaccording to theprogram......
Generally,if you have anOCwith lightin themanecolorisplacedDarkcolors inher hair, butthe same color, for examplea colorlight brownin thehorsehairwithdark browninthehairordark orangecomes in handy, butyou just have towatch theTV seriesandseethedetail inthe characters, it'sjust a matterof knowinga way to combinecolors,the colorsclose inhueare usuallythe most convenient,although notthe rule,ifitisgenerallynotso.
Pony Creator is very fun, but the color selections just are awful! I have a screenshot on my computer of Fluttershy's cutie mark, and I made a Fluttershy on the pony creator, and added the cutie mark on it, but the colors did not match. Honestly, I have a Fluttershy screenshot, and the colors were right but what the heck?
Please don't get me wrong, the pony creator is the best game on deviantart! Besides, I think it should live on!
While you have a valid point in all of this I would like to point out that there is no 'incorrect' way of drawing these ponies Unless you want to completely copy the shows style, the anatomy shouldnt matter that much Its better to create your own style of drawing the ponies in my opinion, than just copy everything from the show
by anatomy i ment the anatomy from the show, like its said "Body is not round enough" and "Legs too far apart and too long" I think the artist you've havent drawn horses before and thus dont completely understand how their legs work
