Description

flipped the hoof heart on the bottom right hoof in >>3348653 to be in the proper frog orientation
technically, it’s not in the correct position, but it’s close enough while still letting the heart shape remain obvious
[Yes, the official G5 models have their hoof hearts screwed on upside-down; the 2017 movie, on the other hoof, installed their frogs correctly]
P.S. this is my first time using the Affinity suite. My review from 15 minutes of using it is that I’m disoriented compared to GIMP and pirated Photoshop CS4 (yes, the one from 2009) but everything is better once I’ve learned where it is

The 2017 movie had hoof hearts installed properly.
You’re saying it as if hearts is something that horses are supposed to have on their hooves.
Hoof hearts were invented by this fandom.
The 2017 movie simply got inspired by lots of fan art, so they just followed the trend. :)
There’s no requirement for the position of such hearts, even if they are put on the bottom of hooves.
People in this comment thread seem to miss my point…
It’s all about the wording “the proper frog orientation” that makes it look like “fixing an error”, when in reality there’s no rule of how to put hearts on hooves, when there’s no such thing in real world.
And it certainly wasn’t a good enough reason to take the original work of art (from the original artist) and change that detail, making it seem as if the original artist made an error, when there’s no such thing!

TIL flipping one hoof heart completely changes the meaning.
  1. Would kids really be that confused by things being upside-down? IIRC, dyslexia occurs when a child is unable to overcome their natural intuition that the same thing viewed form different orientations is, in fact, the same thing. There’s a reason b, d, p, & q are the ones that get confused. Wait, did some education consultant come in and insist that we need to start training kids that a heart and an upside-down heart are different to speed their journies toward literacy?

Excuse me… what? XD
Firstly, I wasn’t talking about what the artist did. I was talking about why it was done this way in G5 show by MLP G5 animators.
Secondly, it’s not an actual artist of the picture (see the source and tags). It’s a person who decided to edit the original picture, completely changing the vision of the original artist.
So… I could use your own words and direct them at you. :) “Sigh some comments, though…” No offense.

It is done on purpose! So that the heart looks right for kids, when ponies raise their hooves up.
Same thing is why the word “Ambulance” is mirrored on the fronts of the vehicles, so that drivers in their rear-view mirrors could read the properly written word.
