I'll be honest...this kind of creeps me out a bit. But this is just pure genius. I was surprised that the Pinkamena hair didn't show up in this one, then again when is Pinkie ever not surprising. She is definitely the random one of the bunch as am I. Anyway I really like what you did here, however I'm not going to be looking at this picture for long as I would LOVE to sleep tonight and I don't want one of my top 3 ponies giving me nightmares. Overall a great vector and I can't wait to see more of your work.
To be honest, that episode which you took this pose had quite a number of animation errors some of them are not very noticable to a lot of people. If you ask me, there were a lot of eyes that were not sufficiently slanted (esp first parts of episodes), at least three instances legs incorrectly bent, plenty of instances couple of inconsistently shaped legs, even a walk cycle which a leg basically walked in mid air. Not sure
Sure, if there are any errors with this vector comparing to the screenshot, I'll agree. There's practically none.
My memory of pony proportions tell me that there's something off about this vector. If you were to compare the screenshot with other screenshots, you'll find a number of errors, so most of the mistakes here are actually not your fault.
The pose is also very unnatural if you look at the back legs. Looking at the episode again, I believe this particular Pinkie Pie was jumping up and down. It's also probably the reason why this pinkie pie has proportionally short legs skewing her head/height ratio as she was probably squished in order to exaggerate the bouncing motion. In most screenshots, you'll find mares to be 3 heads tall. I counted about 2.7-ish heads here. This pose was meant to be used as a frame for jumping up and down, not a standing pose which this pose was modified into. When ponies stand, they do not bend their back legs like this. If we want a weird pose that is extremely weird, I guess you pretty much accomplished your goal.
If you were to compare to other vectors such as these: [link]
It pretty much gets me what I thought. The head shape as shown by the transparent blue areas and the eye size is off according to the green lines.
Sure, ponies don't have proper anatomy and their proportions will keep changing from screen to screen, but to me, the proportions differ just enough to think it's off.
Overall, a perfectly good vector of a slightly off-model pinkie pie taken from a screenshot which was not meant to be 'taken out of context' and transformed into a standing pose. I dunno if people manage to catch some of the things I mentioned tnough.

I love how you DIDN`T do Pinkamena`s hair. Pinkie is Pinkamena all the time, if you think about it. I hate when people relate "Pinkamena" to "cupcakes" Pinkamena. The little filly Pinkiepie was Pinkamena too! Her hair was straight, but she wasn`t criminally insane/psychotic! :anger: :sigh: Sorry for the unneeded tangent. it IRKS me when people just relate that to Cupcakes.
