My Little Ponies by Kinky-chichi My Little Ponies by Kinky-chichi
I've secretly always wanted to draw MLP fanart >u> ...I could recite the movie word for word when I was little. he he

I wanted to draw something really different where I could use my imagination though, so I went for the 'somewhat more realistic magical fawn-like sparkly horsey look'.

I've watched a few of the recent episodes, I like the characters, how it's animated and the modern feel to it. But it kind of bugs be how with every generation they become less and less pony like. :S ...and then I go and draw them looking like deer. THE IRONY. D:

I hope you enjoy! If you don't though, keep it to yourself :P I don't really care.

I was going to complain about the ears... and then I saw your description. Oooooooookaaaaaay. -_-

Other than that... they're absolutely adorable!!! ^_^ I want one! Rarity looks a bit masculine... but in a bishonen kind of way...? Lol. I love your use of color and composition. I think my favorite pose is Fluttershy's.

LOL, real ponies aren't "masculine" or "feminine." You can't tell the difference by just looking at body pr head shape . . .

Features. You seem to misunderstand that using "masculine" or "feminine" is describing sex. A man can be feminine/have feminine features and a woman can be masculine/have masculine features. Describing appearance. In no way am I trying to identify the sex of the animals. Why would I? We all know they are female. Anything can be described as masculine or feminine. Tinny v woody. Rugged v dainty. When describing a llama v alpaca, I might describe llama as masculine in comparison to the alpaca's feminine qualities (Alpaca are smaller and daintier in appearance to the llama.)

If we were looking at a picture of "real" ponies, I'd have to say from lack of experience and having never owned ponies, that I agree with you. However, this is not the case as they are portrayed in a semi-realistic way. Poses, very human personalities, wittle eyebrow things... and the fact that Rarity is staring awfully seductively. I think the heaviness of the color of her eyebrows gave her a "masculine" look is all.

I apologize if those are not the words you would use but I hope at least you can understand how I was using them and what I meant. I mean, I would say that with the pose, softness, shyness.. of Fluttershy, she looks the most "feminine" of all. In any case, whatever, I love it. >\\\<

Absolutely fantastic! This is what I wish I could do. The posture, form, and expressions do not only have a wonderfully naturalistic feel, but are delightful!

I do see what you mean about the deer like bodies; the ears and flat backs in particular. However, even if more horse-like features would have been nice to have included, their absence does not really detract from your work.

Just a thought about the 4th Generation style; while it is very cutesy, it does have (at least) two features that make it appropriate; first, it is very simplistic, making it easy to draw, modify, and animate. Secondly, the large eyes give them a great deal of expression which would be otherwise harder to convey.

Also, a third, minor (and probably unintended) point. Based on what I understand of neuroscience, a key element of intelligence is brain shape; that animals with higher reasoning skills (like humans) tend to have rounder cranial cavities. Based on this reasoning, the rounder skull shapes of the G4 ponies would rather make sense.

Anyways, my inarticulateness prevents me from expressing how much I love this piece...Thank you for posting it!

That really has bothered me too, it seems like they have gradually gone from ponies too ducks with hooves in the last 30 years.
At first, they wanted the toys to be pretty, but since G3.5 I think they've been trying to go more towards the cuteness appeal than the pretty.

I giggled at the last part of the sentence XD but, I do agree the style has changed to what was kinda accurate to a horse/pony has now gone to a simple style.

I like when people do the ponies from any gen in different styles and this one is one of them. They look so pretty! I love their poses, specially Fluttershy's and Applejack's, nicely done! <3

I love it!
I see so much MLP fanart that after awhile I get tired of seeing the ones that all look the same, but I love when an artist incorporates their own style into the picture, it makes it so original and unique!

I really like your take on them and appreciate the more actual horse-ness look of them versus the kinda bobblehead look they have in the show. I especially like Applejack!
