Friendship is Magic by MelodicMadness Friendship is Magic by MelodicMadness
Ahem, moving on... my first art post in over a month and I bring you PONIES. WOOO.

Well, humanified ponies, because I can.

For those of you who saw the beginning concept in my scraps, you can see the style changed quite a bit. I've been working my butt off to get a cartoon style down. But now when I try to do realistic stuff, I make it too cartoony. AHHH I CAN'T WIN.

I'll still be working on them some more. RD has been giving the most problems. The original designs had short hair but... yeaahhh, that looked awful.

Doing hand-drawn lineart with a tablet is complete hell, by the way. I WANT A SCANNER HNNGHHH.

Okay, I think I'm done.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (c) Hasbro Inc.

Edit:
HOLY MOTHER OF CELESTIA.
Over 300 favorites?! I actually really doubted anyone would like this. This was really just for fun o__o But hey, I won't complain!

EDIT #2:
CALM DOWN, PEEPS. THEY'RE JUST PONIES. I SERIOUSLY SPENT LESS THAN AN HOUR ON THIS. THE LINEART IS BAD.

Looks great.....but... Pinke's smile makes her look like Gummy, her toothless pet Alligator,when he smiles and u put too much red on Raity's lips.

Why does everypony insist on making Twilight African-Equestrian?

Why is it strange for one pony to be black but fine for all the others to be white? Why aren't you questioning that?

I have to say, thank you for Twilight. It's funny, because I see a lot of drawings of her as a person of color and I love it. I like to think that they'd all be from slightly different ethnic backgrounds in human form and it's kind of boring if they're all one race, right? Anyways, I'm ranting, but you did a fantastic job. :D

Please tell me you're trolling.
But if you aren't trolling, then let me tell you something.
LEAVE YOUR FUCKING HOUSE AND LOOK AT THE WORLD AROUND YOU. GUESS WHAT? WHITE PEOPLE AREN'T 100% OF THE POPULATION.
Also, please learn to type. It makes the internet more bearable for everyone else.

Rarity has had more episodes this season that really make me appreciate her more. She reminds me a bit of myself, I think.

I love the twilight
but idve thought AJ and RD would have more of a tan seeing as how they are outside a lot
also, Pinkie <3

Yeah this drawing is a bit old and they're darker in my more recent ones (since you're right, they're outside a lot).
But thanks! I'm glad you like it. And I'm really glad to hear that you like the Twilight :)
