And then, I drew ponies!

I donít really know what compelled me to draw this, but the idea popped into my head, and I knew I had to do it ASAP. There's actually a lot of other pony fanart that I want to do in the future. BLUH.

Some explanations or whatever:
Rarity - She was probably the easiest because there's a good variety of recognizable sewing tools and of course GEMSSSS. Also, in my mind, humanized, Rarity looks like Christina Hendricks. I don't know why I decided this, but it's basically my head-canon appearance for her.

Fluttershy - I think Fluttershy turned out the best. I was originally going to put a bird on her head, but I decided to go with a rabbit instead to represent her bunny, Angel. I tried to capture her eye shape... which is kind of droopy and sad looking.

Applejack - There is a cornucopia on her head! Also, doing that tan sort of skin was hard since my skin-tone colors range from really light peaches to dark or yellowy browns. So I had to do some mixing to get it to look somewhat normal. She's tan & freckley for obvious reasons, and also, I gave her kind of a gap tooth... because I think they can be endearing sometimes (see Sookie from True Blood). Oh and the rope bits are because she does all that lasso fanciness.

Twilight Sparkle - I was stuck on what to do with her at first. I was like... should I put books on her head??? hurrr. But then the idea of the ink bottles came about since she is always writing letters, and then I was like OWLONHEAD. Owlowiscious is one of my favorite parts of this drawing for some reason. Her skin-tone came out a tad darker than I anticipated, and I am still on the fence about Twilight with darker skin. I feel like she can work with either dark or light skin. EDIT: I decided that in my mind a human Twilight would be biracial with her mother being Asian-American of some sort & her father being African American. THE END.

Rainbow Dash - I feel like she turned out the worst. She looks so cartoony compared to everyone else, and I was really at a loss for what to do for her headpieces. I mean what do you do??? ALSO I wanted to make her more on the tan side, but it wasn't gonna work with the blue outline I was doing. OH WELL. Next time.

Pinkie Pie - THERE'S A PARTY ON HER HEAD. Appropriate for Pinkie Pie I would say. ALSO, I tried to make her skin tone "so-pale-that-it's-almost-pinkish" because SHE IS PINKIE PIE.

Welp. That's it.

This is a very imaginative drawing. I can't choose a favorite, so I'll tell you what I like about each one.

Rarity: She looks absolutely divine. The gemstones were quite the dazzling feature. Using the fashion design equipment as accessories was a unique touch. Also, her skin tone is perfect.

Fluttershy: She looks sad, but still pretty beautiful. The animals and flowers in her hair really give off a Mother Nature vibe, as yout most likely intended. Love the skin tone.

Applejack: I'll be honest, when I looked at Applejack's hair, the cornucopia instantly made me think of Thanksgiving. Was I supposed to think of Sweet Apple Acres? Anyway, I love the skin tone and freckles. The gap tooth is indeed endearing (although I had to to a double take to actually notice it).

Twilight: The ink wells are my favorite part of this one. They are like an indicator of Twilight's academic excellence - plus they make Twilight look a little bit like Princess Leia from Star Wars. Owlowiscious makes an adorable hat. The way that her cutie mark is glowing as she's holding it is so magical. Also, I personally don't mind her dark skin tone.

Rainbow Dash: I'll admit, I was a bit surprised when I came to her - but in a good way. Her expression is very Rainbow Dash-like. I wasn't expecting her to have wings tattooed to her back, or for her cutie mark to be displayed so blatantly in her hair. But her entire appearance is unique from the others because its elements are so much more different than the rest. Although I would have thought her skin would be a bit darker...

Pinkie Pie: Hers is silly and fun as you would expect. It looks like she's having a birthday party in her hair - and knowing Pinkie that could very well be possible. I love how you decided to make her skin tone as pink as possible.

I love this! It's amazingly well-drawn and you captured all of their personalities perfectly. I have two goals in life: to publish a book and to someday draw this good.

This is AWESOME! I love the idea, I love the execution, I didn't have to read the text to know what you were doing!!! Among my favorite parts, the spilling ink on Twilight Sparkle, Applejack's face/expression, Fluttershy's antlers and bunny... and Rarity is my overall favorite, I think! Her pose, expression, and hairdo/hair ornamentation is all spot-on!

On a side note, have you looked at the artist Camilla d'Errico? Something about the format of showing a bust or portrait, with a lot of symbolic items on the head/in their hair really reminded me of her. If you haven't seen her, you'll probably get a kick out of her work!

Beautifully done!

Thank you for this AWESOME COMMENT! I am really glad you like it!

and you know, I do know of Camilla d'Errico, but I never made the connection until you pointed it out! Maybe, I was subconsciously inspired! haha
