Magic and friendship! by Niliz Magic and friendship! by Niliz
Ponies as people! Thought I would have a shot at it. Had a ton of fun making these, and it was a good exercise for drawing clothes.

Posted these a while ago on Posted these a while ago on my Tumblr, figured I could throw them up here as well.

I love how fluttershy os tall because if you pay attention to her as a filly she's taller and skinnier than other fillies.

This is actually believable. I like your representations of them in these ethnicities and body styles.

The only thing I have a problem with is Rarity wouldn't be black.

I see, why people make Twilight black. It's cuz she as a pony has a dark color, but Rarity is white as a pony, so why the heck is she black here? o_o

Because they're horses and no one actually knows what they would look like as humans. It's more the hair, expression, and personality type that matters. 

I'm not sure why people care so much what color they're drawn as when they're real humans.

Also see this journal I wrote on the subject chocolatequill.deviantart.com/…

They're *ponies* and colors of their skin depends on how dark and light their coat color is, so Rarity can't be black. I'm not saying that she doesn't looks good, just that she couldn't be black as real human.

I simply don't agree -- for a few reasons. ALL of the characters in MLP have BRIGHT and highly saturated colors regardless of how dark they are. It doesn't HAVE to translate by what shade their pony form is. That would deny the concept seen on deviantART of fursonas. Some people with light skin have really dark fursonas, and vice versa with dark skinned ones having light pink and yellow fursonas (and yes, it is the same concept). Limiting character changes by color is the same as limiting real life choices because of skin tone. In any case, you're welcome to your opinion but you simply are not going to get me to agree with you x3.

While I did enjoy the Equestria Girls movies, since when do all the girls in a school have the same body shape and are all the same height? XD

I like this picture. I don't always agree with people's skin color choices when it comes to humanized MLP character, but this fits along with my headcanon pretty well. The only thing is that I prefer a very pale Rarity because she's a white pony. That, and I think I'd prefer a short Fluttershy. I love chubby Pinkie Pie, and the implied Rarishy! ;3

Hi there,

I am developing an event poster for a Lesbian and Trans* Community Groups Showcase event and came across your artworks - Magic and friendship and Friendship is magic.

I would like to use them as the background for the poster and am seeking your permission to do this.

I work for a non-government organisation and the event is not for profit.

Kind regards
Amelinda Cope

:O Is that PinkieDash I see?
I mean, Pinkie is holding her hand, so...
But then again, she could just be like me and hold hands with her friend to freak them out/ be an over-affectionate freshmen.
Anyways, I like. Especially that Pinkie Pie is slightly shorter then her friends, and a bit chubby.

I just noticed AJ's tan line after a few minutes of looking at the picture XD It suits her, I think, just like it suits Pinkie being on the chubby side as a human. Your picture is actually the first one I've seen where Rarity is a dark-skinned human and I have to say, she doesn't look half bad. In fact, I think I prefer her as a darker skinned human. Just like AJ and Pinkie, there's a degree of suitableness to it. And of course, she's as fashionable as always. :D And I just love RD's hair. If only I could find a hair dresser good enough to do it and if it would suit me, I'd probably get my hair done like that. XD And Flutter just looks adorable as always and typical Twilight to have a book or two with her. (Like I don't carry a thick book or two with me all the time. :lol:) All in all, I think your designs are very well done and do justice to the Mane Six.
