This isn't the final version because obviously they’re not clothed xD And just basic coloring for now since I’m going to be doing an outfit overlay for the final anyway.
I wanted to focus on adding slight variations to their body types. Some of my general headcanons have stayed the same since the old drawing- Fluttershy is still tall, RD short, that kinda stuff. I decided to try out a bulky Applejack, and gave Pinkie Pie a bit of pudge. And I think I already mentioned in the past how short-haired Twilight has grown on me over time, so I stuck with the bob cut.
The outfits will be generally the same (with RD and Fluttershy almost done), and I’ve already laid out the sketches for the rest of them but I still don’t expect to finish this anytime soon.
can't wait for the final drawing
I love this drawing ^^
I like Twilight! Look like a school girl
Rarity with a clear skin... I like it and looks sexy |:3
A tall and shy Fluttershy, good combo!
XD Chubby Pinkie, too much cupcakes
Shorty Rainbowdash? XD I feel some alchemy law XP
Pretty good work partner!
Not sure that I'd make RD that much shorter than Applejack, given that in-canon she managed to beat AJ at hoof-wresting...if not taller, make her more "ripped", perhaps?
This is perhaps one of the most thoughtful and realistic humanizations of the Mane Six I've ever seen. It feels like a vast improvement over your previous line-up. It reflects the maturation of not only the characters themselves, but the artist as well. I'm eager to see how the outfits turn out. This is definitely something worth taking time to do. I'm even curious to see how you would draw the Princesses, if ever you do.
Brohoof to you, keep up the good work, and much success to you in the future.
In other words, good jorb.
and oh god forced diversity. Like when some people make Twilight black but no defining ethnic features other than absurdly dark skin just to add diversity, but everyone else is still white. She just becomes nothing more than the "token" black chick...
Granted, a black Twilight makes a bit of sense in that her hair color goes well with that ethnicity, but like you said, most of them lack the ethnic features that would make her black.
What i like is most of all are height and weight differences and the differences in skin tone, it adds more to the characters and makes them more unique! you succeeded in where the designers of for example winx-club and monster high failed since their cast has the same height and body shapes, your characters however have unique designs that fit to their personality. i can imagine fun-loving pinkie pie being rounder, applejack being muscular, etc. i must say i liked your twilight more with longer hair, but that choice of course is up to the artist ^^
all in all a very good job, re-designing stuff you did before can be much fun ^^
