Anyone who knows me well enough will know this was a long time coming XD I have been a fan of, and have been collecting MLP stuff for…ever. I tried to hold back posting my fan art of this cause its been in a viral explosion lately XD (not that I mind of course haha).
In my honest opinion, while I have been a fan for most of my life I do believe that Lauren Faust has created the breath of fresh air that MLP desperately needed both stylistically and for opening the door to a MUCH more enjoyable show to watch (I mean let’s face it, the old MLP shows were OK for their time…but they are just plain boring and awkward now… at least to me XD.) The characters now have much more character and the plots actually have wit, and its viral popularity really shows this success of good design.
I am also studying animation, and I am constantly being pushed to try and simplify my style haha, so these guys are great practice for style and form I am uncomfortable with
