Idk how should I call them shortly xD So I just put 9 instead of 6 there, hah. I did this as little reference for designs and colors for myself.
So yeah! These are my main 9 characters designs, i guess :3 I might use another clothes or so sometimes but these are main ones. And also, this is probably going to be my.. well. .how to call it.. "chibi-like" style (?) for humans. I sometimes used these for comics or so and I always wanted style for these that I would keep and woudl be different from usual manga/anime chibies. Height of drawn character is depending on age and gender, not actual height.
Which means, height (from shortest to tallest):
  1) kids (girls and boys will probably be same height)
  2) teen/adult females
  3) teen/adult males
Otherwise heights for "main 9" would be like this (again, from shortest to tallest):
  1) Spike (cuz he is still kinda kid, he will probably grow taller than all of them when he is adult xD)
  2) Dash and Twilight (almost same height, Twilight is a little taller)
  3) Fluttershy and Starlight (almost same height, Starlight is a little taller)
  4) Pinkie and Sunset (same height)
  5) Rarity
  6) AJ
I don't have any specific heights tho, I just like to imagine them like this, I did almost ever since I saw first humanized MLP fanart (except Starlight and Sunset of course cuz they didn't exist back then) which was like 4 years ago, I guess XD But their heights aren't THAT different, just a little usually.
Also.. one thing about their cutie marks. I just put them on their clothes like always, thought some aren't visible here. So...
  - Starlight - on her vest
  - Rarity - on her handbag (she also uses it as signature on most of her clothes but in different colors to make it less visible, for example if you look on her skirt)
  - Fluttershy - on her skirt
  - Dash - not visible here,  on back of her jacket
  - Twilight - not visible here, on her tie
  - Pinkie - on chest part of her dress
  - AJ - on her boots (yeah, inspired by EG a little xD)
  - Sunset - her necklace, also on her diary/book that she uses for writting to Twilight
I won't/don't use horns in normal humanized style. Like.. Wings? Okay, sometimes I do (even thought I make them a little transparent mostly) .. but.. Horns? Nope, I prefer idea of using magic with hands or something like that.
And about skins... I just like them this way, that's why I picked them, no other reasons :3

------------------

Well, I think that's all about it... I was talking a little too much in today's descirption but.. INFORMATIONS! xD (especially for me to remember for future drawings). If ya have another opinions in your headcanons then you can share but it probably won't change anything about my headcanon.. cuz that's my opinions. Well, hope ya like it, guys! (I don't like how Sunset's face came out, uuugh)


P.S.: This would be finished waaaaaay earlier but my lovely pixlr.com/editor/ didn't wanna work for some reason? Site doesn't wanna show to me, I would be glad if someone of you told me if it works for you so I would know if it's only something with my internet or so. Oh well, so since pixlr didn't work, I used gimp for cutting bg. It was horror.. but I did it.. crappy, but it's finished and that's all what matters after such nerves.

EDIT: Ooops, I forgot Starlight's and Sunset's horns xD

Real cool! I like your human designs for the cast.
Just a suggestion though, maybe add a bit more diversity? They don't all have to be white :/
Well, like you said, that's just my headcanon. They're all still very lovely ^^

Actually I did notice that (still thanks for letting me know) some time ago. I have a bit problem with that in drawings for some reason so even if I want person to look darker, I make them white, lol...Trust me, it's not done on purpose (even tho in this pic was Twilight japanese skin like, not white - and still is in my headcanon - even tho she might seem white). BUT I am working on redesign now where I am trying to add a little bit more of diversity. So far I redesigned Spike, Rarity ( fav.me/db3qll7 ), Twilight ( fav.me/db56mbr ) and Pinkie ( fav.me/db4ru8l ).
But trust me when I tell ya there are people that don't give a sh*t about this at all and put exact same skin on everyone.

Awesome drawing, they all look so cute ^^ and I know this will sound weird, but I noticed that in some drawings that you do (mostly with humans) you cover their ears with their hair. ^^ I do that all the time because I don't like drawing them. I don't know why I said that stuff. Sweating a little...

Thank you ^^
Well, it'S true actually xD I don't draw ears on humans as long as I can cover it with their hair xD I draw them only when they have to be visible or when I really want to. For example: Soarin has short hair so I have to, or when someone has ponytail (when I don't cover it with bangs xD)

Yeah xD, sometimes I do it on accident because I am so used to not drawing them. But, usually if the person has no bangs at all like for Soarin, I have to draw them. It is kinda a habit for me. ^^ But, I need to break out it.
