It would probably be a good idea to shrink the knee/bump or adjust the pose somewhat to make it clearer to all viewers just what they're looking at--since so many fans aren't even seeing it the way it was intended...might look nicer then. It is a really gorgeous design.
That lump may be "correct" but it's just not aesthetic at that size. I don't think it needs to be removed, but if it were reduced, I think it would help it greatly. Art like this shouldn't confuse the wearers...the majority of people wearing and viewing this shirt are not horse anatomy experts. They just know that visually, something is not settling well, and that's so frustrating because this is otherwise a beautiful design.
Great design. Here's a link the the artist's dA, for anyone who is interested: http://bamboodog.deviantart.com/
Oh god THANK YOU SO MUCH.
I just couldn't see it at all before that picture, thank you! Make sure to add it to the comments on the men's version too so they can understand it as well. :)
I don't believe that there's anything to "fix" about the "bump/lump." At first glance it might seem to be some odd protrusion, but it's just her right knee! That's all. She's lifting her right leg up higher, while extending her left down. There may have been a slightly better way to do it, so that the hind legs would be more distinct from one another and it could look a bit more natural, but there's nothing wrong with this at all...except for that seemingly detached, single wing? O.o
Awesome top. I am SO buying it.
I made this to show what the "weird lump" is. Sorry for the terrible quality, it took all of two minutes to do on paint. Hope it helps :)
I've looked at this shirt in every possible way I can and I still cannot figure that 'lump' out. If it's her elbow for her foreleg, one leg ends up looking far longer than the other three. If it's her thigh... Well, I can't see that at all. Someone needs red line this to make it more obvious, because this is a fabulous design I would love to buy but refuse to until I can understand that lump.
All the reviewers know nothing of horse anatomy, the "weird lump" is her right thigh, as you can clearly see with the way her body is twisted to both show off her cutie mark and allow her head to be in profile. Not a werid lump, and it would look extremely wrong with it missing.
In fact the only thing I even slightly dislike about this design is that the background black goes over the wing edges, and I'm buying it anyway. It's awesome and beautiful.
i need to be sure that leg is fixed before buying it...
Fix the leg, and I'll buy it.
Beautiful design, awful lump.
Fix the leg, and I'll buy it.
Her leg really does need to be fixed....
I love this one. So much.
She has no tail?
You need to fix the bump up by rainbow dash's left front leg before selling this. It is an awesome design but if you look closely that bump is ALL WRONG and really ruins the shirt.
