Inkscape has its odd quirks and bugs, unfortunately. Try experimenting with different export sizes, maybe adding more nodes to the shape of the mane, or at worst, redrawing the mane. I unfortunately never really figured out what to do when that happens.

Is there any way to apply ANY of these effects in MS paint? NMM is a pony I draw a lot, and making her mane in pain is absolute hell, because, as far as I've found, there is no way to apply a blur or transparency. I normally just stick to a Luna-mane, but with an opaque outer fill.

I can only suggest moving to more advanced programs. Inkscape might take a few days to learn, but you will definitely find it a lot easier to work with once you get the hang of things. This is the tutorial I used: mandydax.deviantart.com/art/In…

Gimp is also free, and what I use. It works really well for this.

Thanks a lot for this useful tutorial!

It seems that while NMM's stars are upright, those in Luna's mane are rotated by 45. (see here)

Yes, stars staying upright is something that I noticed and should have mentioned in the tutorial. Thanks for pointing it out.

It may be worth mentioning how the stars float off of her mane for quite a distance in places.

Nice tutorial regardless! Very clear and easy to understand.

No matter what I will always see her as bald and that being an aura instead of hair. ALWAYS
