Sweet Celestia this was featured on EQUESTRIA DAILY! Thank you to everyone that has commented on and faved this!
I'm trying to get a job in animation, and part of that is producing portfolio fotage. Since I want to work for Studio B of DHX Media, I decided to make a short film for my reel featuring Lyra and Bonbon from their spectacular series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. This is a little preview of what I'm working on.
Don't worry, I am not going to suddenly be only drawing ponies and nothing else. I'm just posting them now because I suddenly finished a lot of pony stuff at the same time. If I get the job, you won't see much of anything I do for it until the episodes I work on air. I might not even be on MLP, but another program like Pound Puppies. Really, only my fan art and parody type pony things should pop up here. Seraphim and Frenetic are still go!
lol I almost forgot to add her cutie mark before posting.
And with 'Hysterical Rarity', we are done with the 'crazy ponies' . Well, I suppose there are the background ponies, but there is already so little canonical info on them, so it's a bit hard.
Wasn't sure what 'crazy monicker' I would use here. I was thinking 'Depressed Rarity', but that doesn't have the best ring to it. 'Hysterical' is a much better descriptor here; as Rarity arguably suffers a bout of hysteria in the show. (Go watch the scene just after the fashion show from 'suited for success' and tell me that she doesn't look hysterical; the whole 'exile' thing is a bit excessive )

<EDIT> Moved to the main gallery from scraps because of the ridiculous amount of favorites this thing got. Seriously, it became my most faved deviation within a day, and I barely spent 20 minutes on it and I submitted it to ONE group, while drawings I spend days on are carefully ignored. I'll never understand your ways, guys. </EDIT>
Recommended listen: Fluttershy's lullaby (Not this version, the one I have doesn't have Sweetie Belle's part, only Fluttershy singing for 15 minutes non-stop~ )
Extracted from my upcoming sketchdump (and scrapped), because I don't want to finish it, but I do like it a lot. I did it in less than 20 minutes (while the song above was playing + a minute for the finishing touches), so it's very sketchy, but... at least it's kinda cute?
And hey, if somepony, anypony wants to pretty it up and make it all spiffy, be my guest. Just... y'know, link back to me and let me know because I want to gallop around the room chanting "YESYESYESYESYESYESYES!" and fave it a thousand times
These are the pets/companions from the show, or at least some of them- Twilight Sparkle's dragon assistant, Spike, Fluttershy's pet bunny, Angel, Applejack's doggie, Winona, Rarity's cat, Opal, Pinkie Pie's alligator, Gummy, and Princess Celestia's phoenix, Philomina, all taking a nap together. (Poor Dashie, no pet for her. :<) Just typical, my first real fanart for the show is a bunch of minor characters (see, pets).
PS- I've never seen Gummy close his eyes, so let's pretend he sleeps with his eyes open.
Like the Twilight poster before this, I'm fairly certain that there isn't an accepted name for 'crazy Dash', so I just went with Anxious Dash, as that seems to be the closest. I suppose I could of gone with 'Panic-Attack Dash" but that's a bit long for a name.
Not 100% sure on the "names" I'm going to use for Rarity and Applejack. Depressed Rarity? Insomniac Jack? Need to flick through a list of mental disorders / conditions

*************** Twilight Sparkle loves astronomy (yay!) so now she comes here to explain the different kinds of relationships towards MLP:FiM people can have, using a "black hole diagram" (I made it up, I'm so witty).
So how does it work? Just roll your mouse over the different "sections" of the black hole that correspond to different groups of people, ranging from HATERS (furthest) to EXTREME FANS (center).
PS: Drawing the black hole was easy, but Twilight was a pain to draw, the anatomy was annoying and I couldn't get the eyes right, but I think it turned out okay. What do you think?
Since I don't think there is an accepted name for 'crazy Twilight' I just went with "Confounded Sparkle." (Also ties in with the 'Confound these ponies..." meme. ) I was thinking about doing an 'angry Twilight' but the confused / confounded / panicked mood seems to fit her character a little bit better in my opinion. (But I think I will do a 'Rage Sparkle'...maybe.)
