Little Ponies by jameson9101322 Little Ponies by jameson9101322
Must draw for fun or will go mad... 0_0

So... I drew ponies! Why not?

I know a lot of people are fans of the new Friendship is Magic pony show. I am too, but did you know that all the ponies had incarnations before FiM? That's right, they sampled from the massive catalog of existing pony names to design their characters. I've drawn them all in Friendship is Magic style but in the coloring and poses of their original figures. Some of them are strikingly different.

Applejack is not. She's the truest translation from past to present... and it's a distant past too, Applejack was one of the earliest ponies released [link]

Fluttershy is more recent from the 3rd generation of ponies. She was released in the 2000s. it's interesting to note that all these ponies are earth ponies except Rarity who has always been horned [link]

Rainbow Dash is from the same general era. She's also an earth pony and part of what the wiki calls the "Core 7", the 7 character ponies designed when Hasbro decided to limit the number of named ponies from scads to seven. [link]

Rarity is also a g3 pony from the 2000s. She's what's known as a "super longhair" pony... which is self-explanatory. She's also one of those types of ponies that thought it was a good idea to glue stuff all over themselves. it always bothered me when my ponies had hard plastic bits fused to their skin. *I* never forgot they were horses as a child. i had one pony whose flank had a flower bowl shape sticking out of it that a bee on a string lived in. We pretended it was her pet and sometimes it would fly away and kidnap her. Back to Rarity, she's chronicled as the first unicorn in Ponyville (ponyville being the ponyville line of toys in g3) i wonder if that information holds up in the new series [link]

Pinkie Pie is also a member of the Core 7. She's been used the most extensively in pony merch and advertising recently, I think it's because she's pink. She's also shiny, there's a metallic gleam to her plastic body. [link] Other names of Core 7 ponies you might recognize are Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle as well as Toola Roola, Cheerilee, and Star Song. i'm keeping my eye out for these other three in the future. i hope they'll make memorable pony appearances on Friendship is Magic. (I'm also anxious to see if Sweetie and Scoot's cutie marks end up being a butterfly and a crap-ton of candy and hearts. Sweetie looks like she got hit by trick-or-treater on jet skates [link])

And as you've probably noticed, Twilight Sparkle is not represented here. That's because she's a brand new pony only introduced in generation 4. Therefore she is ineligible for this picture, even if she is my favorite in the cast.
EditEnds up there WAS a pony just named "Twilight" in the first generation of ponies. Its not Twilight Sparkle, but look at this and TELL me there's not a resemblance [link] I think I'll add her to the back.


there you go, there's way too much pony info for anyone to reasonably handle. I'm not an avid collector, but I had fun wiki'ing all this info. The Wiki inspired this picture, so that's something too.

I have other pony doodles I'd like to draw. I'd really love to give my favorite ponies from my childhood the Friendship is Magic treatment. That'll be for another day though

Ahh. Here I was gonna ask why it was G1 AJ and Twilight instead of G3 AJ and Twilight Twinkle.

I'm sure you know by now, but there are in fact two G1 Twilights: the unicorn you know, and a pegasus who is purple like Twilight Sparkle and has a candle cutie mark that's just like the logo on the door of Twilight Sparkle's library.

I seriously doubt we'll ever see the CMC get their cutie marks; they'll have to change their names! Even though every episode about them no longer revolves around their search for their CMs, not having discovered theirs yet is kinda important to the concept of them as a group, though of course each has other individual aspects. (Same goes for Scootaloo flying. Final episode or never!)

On the subject of Twilight Sparkle... the pony used as Twilight Sparkle's mother in the series bears a very strong resemblance to the G1 Twilight, and I doubt that's unintentional ;)

Twilight Sparkle also resembles a G3 pony by the name of Twilight Twinkle.

This is pretty good, oh and G3 Applejack had a different color design.

I like where you put the horn on Rarity. Unicorn horns on G3 ponies is just so akward.

Nope, pretty certain it was a bee. It was tied with silver cord to a giant tulip that was glued to her flank.

I don't know if you saw that chart that compares G1 and G3 ponies to the FiM ponies but there is a G3 Pony called Twilight Twinkle and on the chart she is the G3 counterpart of Twilight Sparkle.

Also the ponies with 'hard plastic bits stuck to their flanks' are 3D cutie marks.

Rainbow Dash is of the G3 (2003-2009ish?) era. However, as Lauren Faust has said, RD is based on Firefly of G1 era (1982 to 1992). [As a side note, RD was created in the G3 line but her toy has continued through G3.5/ponyville to the G4 line.]

I'm familiar with the toys the first three eras, but not any of the TV shows or movies; so I have no idea how RD matches up to Firefly. But if the creator of the show says something, well, it must be true! :)

Okay, I get that ponies can fly, but so can the dragons that he's clearly shown that he has, and you could save your evil supermagic for, I don't know, world domination, and not waste it on your magic car.

Is... is that true about Megan? I can't tell with you.

It's a magical wagical girl wirly fantasy land!

That said Ponies have sugar-gumdrop DNA that lets them fly without wings when turned into magic chariot giraffes.

And Megan was prophesied to be the name of the one true pony messiah... The Pony Who Walks on Hind Legs.

I watched it. It wasn't bad, but it did leave me asking a few questions.

1) What exactly were Megan's qualifications? Firefly just showed up, said, "What's your name? Great! Off to save the world!" Hey, just because I know someone's name, doesn't mean that I think they're qualified to go up against someone with an army of dragons.
2) Why did the bad guy need the ponies? I mean, he just turns them into dragon monsters to pull his chariot, but doesn't he already have, like, about a hundred dragons it would have been way easier to attach to his chariot?

Other than that, it was good.
