Very helpful and will continue to be for quite some time! Here's my first attempt (I might have sort of skipped the mane and tail):

This is a good technique, but I almost never use anything like it haha. Probably should, but the few times I have tired it, everything came out weird quite quickly.

my weird thing is, that i can draw them easier from the eye, (so the complete picture) then a tutorial with those circles and lines and shapes that result into the final piece 0-0

WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?

To be blunt: Your understanding of volumes. It's easier to see a pony, flat as she is, and not see the volumes that make her up. Getting to know the spheres and cylinders that make up a pony will help you to be able to create your own pony poses.

....i DO see the cylinders and such, it's more that if i want a certain pose, taking 3 different pictures and drawing it myself OR take a picture i can draw it directly, instead of following each and every single step with cilinders.

examples of "volumes" in original poses.(oldest to newest, the oldest still has a flaw with a leg)

Then the cylinders aren't necessary to draw. If they've been internalized then there's no reason to throw them around everywhere.
