Wanted to make up for the series of humanoid pony illustrations I never completely finished. The "mane six" with their elements. Had a lot of fun with this one, except when Photoshop crashed a few times....
Anyway.... Skin tones. I didn't want a monochrome cast, so to speak. I wanted to make them just as diverse as their pony counterparts. Plus, it was fun to experiment with different skin shades. ^ ^
As mentioned above, Photoshop started to crash on me, so I couldn't do the background like I really wanted...But, it turned out decent in the end. Overall, I'm quite pleased with this.
