Mane 6 2014 WIP by Ric-M Mane 6 2014 WIP by Ric-M

Work-in-progress!

This is going to be a 2014 update on my old picture of the humanized mane six. Mane Six Lineup by Ric-M
Gonna be adding the outfits next.

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.

Each has a good form ... except Pinkie . Why? because she eats a lot of sweeets.

I like that you gave pinkie a little bit of a fudge pudge. It makes her more realistic. She looks so adorable.

These look great!  I prefer my Human Twilight long-haired, and Rainbow about shoulder-length, but awesome!  The only really striking thing is their hips seem kinda wide, but I'm getting used to that.

So could you say she had a bit too much fudge so she can't budge?

I love the body of AJ <3, that strong legs |:3
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!

I like how you didn't make Fluttershy ludicrously stacked like in almost every other humanization of her. Also the way that you approached this as a sensible portrayal of the subtle (yet still distinct) differences in the girls' body types without turning it into a perv-fest. Good Job =)

Nice! Short-haired Twilight is cute.

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? :)

I love the diverse body types. Not only does it elevate them from the rut of all females in cartoons having the exact same figure, but each body type is perfectly fit to each individual that not only to make them look different but showcases their personalities. Great work I wish I could do that ;)

I really like the detail you've put into their height, weight, stance, etc. The details are subtle, but they effectively convey a certain aspect to who they are overall. In particular, the height difference between Rainbow and Fluttershy lend a nice contrast to their personalities, even in relation to the other girls. Then you have Pinkie's cute pudge vs. Applejacks's honed stockiness, as well as Twilight's small frame and Rarity's balanced proportions. The differences are there, but are not exaggerated. The varying skin tones are a nice plus. 

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.

It's interesting to see how much older they seem in this pic then the 2012 one. It's like 2012 is teenagers while these are grown women.

This is a really awesome piece. You drew the Mane 6 in a realistic fashion, and in a way that reflects their personalities.
Brohoof to you, keep up the good work, and much success to you in the future.

All the body types, and they're not all the exact same size and they have different skin colours without going forced diversity. The body types makes sense, too. Pinkie is slightly pudgy without making her crazy fat, Rarity has all the curves (and that hair, oh wow) and Applejack clearly gets a fair amount of exercise, to name a few.

In other words, good jorb.

Well put :clap: I really love how he gave Pinkie Pie a good balance of pudgy but not morbidly obese. 

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... :iconfacepalmplz:

My point exactly, it's usually like the artist drew the characters and then realized "oh, wait, I have to meet my POC-quota, better unleash my paint bucket on Pinkie Pie".

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.
