So I've been trying to get some digital practice in for a time, since I've gotten into this show I couldn't resist playing around with this. I tried to keep as on-model as I could for the characters but I went off-model for the background for the sake of experimentation.

At first I thought the show had very basic, flat backgrounds but quickly learned that was not the case. Those background artists deserve some respect and I have a lot to learn.

My Little Pony property Hasbro.
character designs developed by Lauren Faust.
this illustration is my work.

Can I use this as a fan fiction cover? I'll give you credit and a link back to here. Please?

You wouldn't be the first to use it. If "Ponies Play D&D" could, then they probably won't mind you using it too.

Is that a warning that it wouldn't be original (and I should go with bard Pinkie image instead) or that it's a tried and true method?

Hey, i'm going to be running a pony themed RPG channel on Youtube starting later this week baring technical setbacks. I was wondering if it would be possible to use this image as the base a channel header? Provided you were okay with that, of course.

APPLE JACK: "How many XPs was that sucker worth?"

Good, but.... You need more than D6's to play, if it's similar to D&D XD
