MLP - Human Versions Go! by liliy MLP - Human Versions Go! by liliy
All Characters from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (Yay!)

You may have noticed that on my picture of human!Rarity & Fluttershy, that someone suggested drawing versions of the rest...and I was totally on board with that (I was going to do it anyway). After all, if other people can have human designs for the Ponies, why not me, too? XD

Thus, this giant chart came to be! Right now, I only have three, but I'll be adding more to this deviation and updating it appropriately as I finish more! :D

My goal is to get through the Mane Six, My favorite Side Characters (Cherry Jubilee, Derpy, Quill & Couch guy, etc.), and possibly the Princesses. :) We'll see how many I actually get through!

Enjoy!

4/8/12
Fluttershy: Fluttershy turned out pretty cute, I think, if not the easiest to design--plus, she is rocking those Mary Janes. My favorite part of the design, though, is her hair pulled over her shoulder like a scarf. :3

Rarity: My favorite of all the ponies! Rarity was too much fun. I got to draw something a little extravagant, sassy/sexy, and I can totally see her wearing a garter. The hardest part was her skin tone...I was going for fake-orange-tan, but I'm not sure if I got it quite right.

Applejack: My second favorite pony! She was a lot of fun to design, too. To foil Rarity, I wanted her to have a healthy farmer's tan to go along with all her amazing freckles. <3 I've seen a lot of people stick her in red plaid and more decorated cowboy boots, but Applejacks' a field hand--so I pictured her in sensible work boots, and in a plainer work top.

4/9/12
Rainbow Dash: I actually forgot her wings the first time around, shame to say. You can thank my brother for making me add them in! Anyway, for Rainbow Dash I went 'Pilot' - I may or may not have a thing for her goggles. :D

Random comments: It occurred to me they're going to line up by type by the time I'm done with the mane six: Pegasus. Unicorn. Earth. Didn't mean to do that...I was just doing them in order of my favorite. XD Fun.

4/11/12
Twilight Sparkle: I can't get the picture of her hanging out in her house in sweats reading. So there ya' go.

Pinkie Pie: She turned out way cuter than I thought she would. I'm not a huge fan of Pinkie (unless she's going nuts as Pinkamina), so I was dreading drawing her. But, she turned out super cute so it's all good. <3

The Great and Powerful Trixie: She was demanded by my brother. She thwarted me at every line and you get what you get. (She did not want me to draw her. T_T)

I came across this pretty randomly, but wanted to drop a note about what you've done with Pinkie Pie.

Black skin has highlights. They stand out a lot more than they do on pale skin, which can throw off artists who are used to drawing light-skinned people (self included). Some reference images, where you can see highlights particularly on the women's foreheads, cheeks, and noses:

Pinkie's pose and outfit are adorable, but her skin doesn't look right -- and in a way that's uncomfortably close to racist caricature, making it all the more important to be accurate. Make another pass and give that girl's skin some highlights, please?

liliy Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks for the references. :)

...but I'm not really doing any highlight-shading for any of them. I'm trying to keep it a little more simple with just basic shading. :)

ErinPtah Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
No, see, what I'm trying to say is that highlights *are* basic shading on skin that dark! They stand out against the base tone a lot more than the shadows do; if you're going into enough detail to include the subtle shadows, the more prominent highlights should already be there.

Without them...I'll be honest, when I first scrolled down the art I thought for a second you had drawn Pinkie as a blackface caricature. Which I'm sure is not what you were going for! But the resemblance is going to be there as long as she as the bright-white eyes and teeth surrounded by skin that doesn't reflect light the way it should.

The highlights don't have to be anything complicated. Cel-shaded bright areas in the appropriate places, that's all it would take.

I know what you're talking about, but I chose to just do shadows for this set. So, right now she's the same as the rest of them & I think it looks okay.

The rest of them have two-tone shading that appears natural to their skin tones (for light skin, base tone + shadows, just as for dark skin it's base tone + highlights). Pinkie's not the same on that count at all -- from an artistic perspective alone, she stands out pretty badly =/

Wow, I really like Pinkie Pie with dark skin. It really suits the rest of her colours!

I like the racial diversity, but there really isn't much body variation, and it looks a bit less like "racial diversity" and more like "changing the colour palette". If you made them all black and white, I wouldn't be able to tell what race they were supposed to be at all.

Nonetheless, fun in a bun, and I am loving the shit out of their body language and expressions. <3

To be fair, I don't think two black girls and five white girls is all that diverse either. Not quite sure where everyone keeps getting that...I wasn't exactly trying to be diverse. XD I was just drawing them.

And the lack of body variation is based off the show. They all share the same character model. :D

I suppose it's considered pretty diverse when most people just draw an all-white cast. ;)

Aah, I see. Well, that does make sense.

The only thing that I can say is that Pinkie's shirt should be darkened a bit(so it can complement her skin colour more) but other than that, AMAZING JOB!
