Tee hee by fyre-flye Tee hee by fyre-flye
Sketch of Pinkie Pie for 2008 MLP:FiM pitch bible. Though it's been revealed previously, some of you may not know I pitched Pinkie as a pegasus. I thought flying would really compliment her personality. Early on, I was seriously debating whether she or Fluttershy got the wings, so even though we didn't go with my decision, it wasn't hard to switch them right back.

Hey,fyre-flye i'm a fan of the mlp fim show.i like your mlp fim drawings/sketchs.

I gotta say I agree with your decision. I mean, even if the decision was made to make Fluttershy a pegasus, someone wrote an entire backstory just to justify her living on the ground, and Pinkie Pie defies physics just to stay in the air. It's pretty clear Fluttershy is more of an earth pony, and Pinkie Pie is more of a pegasus. You're definitely right, it's more like her personality.

I have to disagree though. You are entirely correct in that Fluttershy prefers the earth pony life and Pinkie is more pegasus than not, but that's exactly why I'm glad that they're the way they are. It gives them more depth of character. Instead of "I'm a pegasus so I like flying," we have a pegasus with a FEAR of flying, on which there have been several episodes, and thus, character development. As for Pinkie, it's much more humorous to see he fly without using actual wings, emphasizing her whimsical, quirky, and occasionally inventive nature. It wouldn't be as interesting to watch her fly simply because she's a pegasus. We have Rainbow Dash for that. Basically I'm glad the decision was made as it was because it gives more room for complexity of characters instead of going with the more obvious choice.

I might've been better and made more sense if Pinke got the wings tbh

There is Pinkie Pie. How cute and cool. The pegasus aspect is interesting. So the two pegasi are the really active ones. There is a difference in movement. Pinkie Pie is very scattered and bounces in all directions. Rainbow Dash is very bold and rushes forward  in one direction. I am fascinated with pony diversity. Ponies are divided into three kinds: earth, pegasus and unicorn. The early arrangement seems to fit them very well, with subtle changes.  The earth ponies are strong and connected to nature. Apple Jack is into plants, and Fluttershy is into animals. The pegasi can fly and so are more active. Pinkie Pie is more agile, while Rainbow Dash is more focused. The unicorns are magical and they deal with the mind. They are also the ones I can relate to, since I am an introverted and intuitive person. Twilight Sparkle is intellectual, while Rarity is more artistic.

In the final show, the changes cause more contrast in the pony types. Numerous episodes give plenty of room to show and resolve the differences. The unicorns stay the same. The earth ponies are still more down-to earth than they are. Their is a difference between them.  Pinkie Pie is more emotional and fun-loving, while Apple Jack is more stoic and serious. Then the pegasi seem to be polar opposites. There are certain pairs that really stand out as opposites to me. There are episodes that show this contrast. In "Feeling Pinkie Keen", Pinkie Pie is very unpredictable, while Twilight Sparkle is very rational. Yet they both have their own forms of magic. In "Sonic Rainboom" and "Hurricane Fluttershy", Rainbow Dash is more active, while Fluttershy is more passive. My favorite example is "Look Before You Sleep". Apple Jack is more materialistic and practical, while Rarity is more artistic and proper.

that would be cool if later on in the show if her or rarity got wings
Fazbear53 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2017
Rarity got wings in sonic rainboom. It was probably a reference to flutter ponies.
Kittymeowlol Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2016
She was originally a pegasus? Didn't know that! :imsmart: 
MelodyPaints Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Yes i think the mane 6 was originally based off the mane 6 from gen 1 and in gen 1 there was no pinkie pie she was a white pegasus with a frizzy blonde mane a white coat  and purple balloons for a cutie mark and her name was Suprise.

Fluttershy should had been a earth pony tbh, I wonder why she became a pegasus?
Sp0tti Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2016  Student Digital Artist
she would be more 'down to earth' i guess you could say
SonicBoomArtist353 Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha true
CrystalCadenza Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I mean, she spends much more time on the ground with animals, so I would expect her to be an earth pony.

and why do you think she would pot your oc in a episode and your oc is an alacorn how would that be explained and has an oc ever been in the show before why do you think yours could be on the show
rhinecuffs Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2016
I know this is a late reply, but I honestly hope you are much more mature today and that you are no longer pushing little girls around just because they want their characters in the show.
34kitties Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
she could put me in as a unicorn instead. 
lostwind20 Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2015  Student

I bet now today, if the original sketches Pinkie didn't have wings, and our current Pinkie DID, I bet we'd be saying that the Earth Pony Pinkie is better xD
SpaceKitty320 Featured By Owner May 13, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If Pinkie had wings the world would explode... she can already shatter the fourth wall.
PHOBlATlC Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2015
i simply think you should make an episode, when they each change their species instead of cutiemarks this time.
Like for example:
RainbowDash is a Earthpony
FlutterShy is a Unicorn
Pinkie Pie is a Pegasus
Rarity is a Earth Pony
and Applejack is a Pegasus.
They, you would have a chance to use these designs ; )
