MLP Resource: Queen Faust 01 by ZuTheSkunk MLP Resource: Queen Faust 01 by ZuTheSkunk
---------------

~Mixermike622 made a brilliant, show-accurate design for Faust's OC, but never released it in a satisfying resolution, so I thought that I can as well make it myself. All credit for body shape and design of mane&tail go to Mixermike622. I came up with my own design for wings, because I realized that each alicorn in the show (Celestia, Luna and Nightmare Moon) has a unique wing model, and thus giving Celestia's wings to Faust didn't seem appropriate to me.

(20.07.2012) Updated into an actual vector. I made some small alterations in the design and the way things were drawn, like altering the eye to have a better colour and to have a black outline around the entirety of it (since as *tygerbug pointed out, Lauren Faust uses an eyeliner), slightly increasing the size of Faust's head (it seemed a bit too small in the original), improving the placement of the legs, moving the horn behind the second line in the hair instead of the first (since the original placement didn't make much sense when you took Faust's head shape into account) or updating Faust's cutie mark into colours from my Faustilicious.

I’ve converted three of the SVG images to Illustrator—the wings-folded versions. Would you like copies of those .ai files?

If you’re interested in seeing how I used the vector art, you can take a look at the little cartoon I’ve posted.

Of course, I'd love to have these AI files. Thank you very much for working on them! :)

Okay—I’ll drop you a note with a link to a zip archive containing the three files!

Alas, the SVG files are completely unusable in my software of choice, Adobe Illustrator. I tried opening them in CS5, CS6, CC, and CC2014 to no avail.

This is because Inkscape and Adobe Illustrator are often incompatible due to different ways of accomplishing various tasks. I would have to go an extra mile to make this compatible with AI.

Is there any intermediary you know of that doesn’t involve downloading something so one can download something else to make some other thing work?

Do you mean a conversion tool for SVG to Ai? Because unfortunately none exist that would do a clean job and still retain usability. As Zu stated, it is up to the artist to create SVG v1.1 that is compatible with Illustrator, which can be awfully tedious.

Okay, actually it turned out to be a little more complicated. I had to recolor the individual vector shapes, using the RGB values I captured from the PDF files before converting them to Illustrator. Tedious, but not horrible. Fortunately the number of shapes and of colors is limited, which no doubt is not accidental—likely it’s one way the show’s art staff keeps from going insane.

Well actually the show's producers do not use SVG as a working format. They use flash predominately, and Illustrator. These two software are fairly compatible, so I doubt any issues would be had in regards to colors and the such.
Regardless, I was right in saying there is no clean way to convert an Inkscape SVG into Illustrator SVG unless the artist has specifically made them to be compatible. Beleive me, I have tried on numerous occasions when critiquing submissions.
