Well, after doing these
, I got inspired to finish the job and do these. This was considerably more difficult to do, seeing as how I had to find reasonably large vectors just so I didn't have to paint over them completely and work basically from scratch. I'd first started out with Rarity months ago, just changing the skirt so it looked more like her and less like some teen drama queen (Rarity is an adult
drama queen) and then decided to do the others, though obviously the changes here took a lot more work.
I would have kept them with their multicolored skin tones, but I decided there was no good reason for anyone to keep those around, apart from perhaps a stylistic touch, but honestly there's just no reason to give humans magical pony flesh tones.
Princess Twilight Sparkle
Since she is a nerd, I thought it fitting that the nerd of the group actually dress like -oh, I don't know, a nerd? Long-sleeved white shirt, sweater vest, and khakis. A black version of Twilight is actually quite popular amongst some artists. Should I do one? Please let me know.Applejack
This is how I imagine a humanized AJ (incidentally, its very unlike pretty much almost EVERYONE's interpretation of her) she wears a jacket and jeans and don't give a hootinanny about style, so long as she gets the job done. Surprisingly not much more to say, despite the fact that I went back over her design a lot. Her cutie mark is actually supposed to be on the back of her jacket, but naturally you can't see it there, so I put it on the left pocket, instead. Rarity
Save for the skirt, Rarity is otherwise perfect. Change the skirt, give her a normal skin tone, there, boom, done.
I've always seen rainbow as a sort of rebel, an extremist of sorts and a rule breaker, the cool drop-out that types like Scootaloo look up to. In that light, I gave her a skateboard with cool design on it and a determined expression, rather than a happily passive, I-cause-no-trouble look. Note the black left eye and the bandage on her right arm; obviously she's been defending Flutttershy's honor (Pegasisters stick together!)
I have no idea what's up with Pinkie's outfit in the movie, it just screams 'Disney Channel' as opposed to 'Realistic'. But I digress. I figure she's the type who wears pants with the legs rolled up, and literally every other scrap of clothing she wears is perfectly positively pink (don't tell TheMysteriousMrEnter
) I figure she's the type that's both bright and practical; colored with cheerful hues, but not afraid to get dirty if need be. She also has cutie marks on her high tops and and her fanny pack. I don't know why I did that.Fluttershy
Don't Fluttershy's types usually wear hoodies because its easier for them to hide that way? (She's not wearing her hood here, I might have to fix that later on) Someone once suggested that Flutters should be tall and awkward, adding to her shy character, so she's tall here. I also think that maybe her human self comes from a not so well off family, so she's kinda' poor (so hence the sweatpants and tennis shoes) and maybe her father is abusive and her mum is a drunk cheater (so hence her shyness)
