Attempting to figure out what sort of shading style is befitting of Ponies. Present analysis: inconclusive. Must continue attempts. I'm going to try a couple other shading ideas next time and see where it gets me.
In all reality though, I'm of the belief that shading Ponies is a bad idea in any art unless you go all the way and have a very detailed style. If you aren't going to be super involved, then basic shading if any at all is the only way to go. Pixels art isn't vectors, so I had to try it.
