Cutie Mark Guide for the mane 6 by Mamandil Cutie Mark Guide for the mane 6 by Mamandil
:bulletblue: TL;DR version in the picture.

A few months ago, someone made me notice that I had placed Twilight's cutie mark on one of my vector on the wrong side, so I checked a few other references, and he was right. I had pretty much always used a pre-made cutie marks, adn never really payed attention to its position until his comment; well at least for Twilight. I noticed Rainbow Dash's way before that, but hers is really obvious.
Anyway, after his comment I started paying more attention about it. But for some reason it didn't occur to me to check for the other 4. I pretty much assumed they were symetrical.

A week ago, my train of thoughts lead me to this particular comment, and I ended up thinking that they were in fact not symetrical. So I decided to check it.
I checked several episodes from the three seasons, and they all match. They're all positionned like in the picture above. Fluttershy and Applejack's are very subtle, but it's still not symetrical.
I quickly went through several folders, and a lot of vectors got the cutie marks backward (some of mine included), so hopefully this guide here will prove to be useful.

If you look at them, there is a slight line going up... better shown here.
Of Twilight's bigger stars, the back one is lower.
Of Pinke's balloons, the back one is lower.
Of Applejack's apples... well, the back one is slightly lower?
Of Fluttershy's butterflies, they're rotated so there's a "line" there.
Of Rainbow's lighting, following the lowest corners, the back one is lower.
...then Rarity... where it's reverse.

While this is absolutely correct in every episode of the show, even official merch and the official website display them backwards more often than not.

And a three-quarter view, the Cutie Mark should be warped.
Compare a non-warped to a warped cutie mark.
The warped is bent and makes the hind leg wider, and rounder. The flat cuite mark looks strange.

And related to this, Vinyl Scratch's cutie mark has the bells/balls of the eighth notes facing her tail, resulting in a flipped-from-how-it-normally-is eighth note in her first two appearances on the show.

I think Octavia might be an exception. Maybe. How many sides do we see her from in the show canon? According to the images here, we only see her from one side. But I think fanon shows that her treble clef doesn't flip when we see her other side.

Cutie marks are always mirored. I don't see why Octavia should be an exception.

Yeah, I made mane six cutie mark vectors for personal use and didn't think to label which side was the front until I got to Twilight's (which was the last one I made). I should probably go back and fix that.
