Pinkie Wonka by DiamondSkyPony Pinkie Wonka by DiamondSkyPony
I hope this hasn't been done before! But if it has, then I hope this is better. XD

My rendition of Pinkie Pie as Gene Wilder, from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, 1971. The movie I grew up with, and cherish for it's classic charm. Paying no mind to the Johnny Depp version of today.

I know that Pinkie doesn't quite look like herself here; that's because I was trying to capture Gene's signature expression that I adore so much. That look of... somehow, charming smugness. Knowing inquisitiveness. With a hint of peculiarity. <33

Yes, the background is modified from a photograph of the chocolate room. I wanted to make it clear that this is a crossover of the 1971 film, and not Charlie and the Chocolate Factory of 2005. Annnnnd I kinda didn't feel like spending hours drawing one anyway, so. Worked out. XD

EDIT: Speaking of backgrounds, here's a 1080px version:

Spike and the CMC would actually work better as the Oompa Loompas, come to think of it.

Incidentally, I could definitely see her being frightening as she does the scary tunnel routine.

Yep, but given what we see in The Last Round Up and Secrets & Pie, Pinkie would look even creepier.

I really needed this today. She's beautiful. I can't think of a better character or pony to pay homage with.  RIP Gene

Even if Pinkie looks like Gene Wilder Wonka I think her behavior is more like Depp's Wonka but that's just my opinion

I'm currently writing a MLP Wonka story for FimFiction.net. I would love to use this as the cover art.

Only weird thing is my version is based on the 2005 film, so Pinkie's outfit would be different.

It actually makes some weird sense to have Pinkie Pie as Willy Wonka; she loves sweet things and she's 'absent-minded'. If you're interested I've been trying to formulate who the ten visitors would be and made some conclusions.

She would be Willy Wonka, wouldn't she?

Love it. And yes. The Gene Wilder version is the only one that exists in my mind. And that's the kind of Wonka Pinkie would be, complete with random trip down a tunnel of insanity that's never mentioned again.

I like the idea of Pinkie growing into the character. Gradually exchanging her outward exuberance and bounciness for Willy's style of lunacy. Doing wacky, unexpected, bonkers things under a veil of calmness and normalcy. 83

Hhm... And now that I look, it seems you're just starting out here on DA. Well I hope to see even more good things from you. I saw you say that you have some other ideas, any chance you could share them? I love making ideas for things so I'd love to hear what you have in mind so I could potentially help you out.

So the tunnel scene would be Party of One?

And to me, the 1971 version is the best, the remake felt, to me, like there making a movie about Micheal Jackson or something... as much as I like Johnny Depp it just felt off, probably the Burton influence or something.

Well, as others have said, they are two different movies, each with their own unique interpretations. We're just biased. :3c

Nicely done, even though I hate those movies (the BOOK belongs to Roald Dahl)

However it's really fitting...now I wanna draw Pinkie reading that book, she'd love it.

Spike and the CMC should fill the roles of Tom and Jerry from that animated crossover/remake.
