This post will be updated with more characters and costumes as time goes on. On the back burner from EqG1 are the Wondercolts accessories and Fall Formal dresses.
We will also be creating a guide for Rainbow Rocks main characters once we have official HD video. The Dazzlings main outfits will be completed with high priority.
After that, some high profile background characters from both films will be attempted (Trixie, CMC)

ZIP Contents
- 4k x 4k PNGs of each guide

Methodology
- Screenshots were taken from the BluRay disc version of the movie using VLC media player.

If you're using this resource, use the eyedropper tool in your favorite program. I've just added a link to the live version. On that you can click a color and the HEX code will be copied to the clipboard.

Yanoda originally made that. It's not available on his dA page, but since it is embedded in the ZIP file I think it's fine to distribute it. 1drv.ms/b/s!ApvfEB7YSVqQgdkUYJ…

Is there some error in the methodology using BluRay video files or something?

Pinkie's mane is actually a different color here than in the show, citing this: quasdar.deviantart.com/art/Vec…

Seems odd that they'd change the pony's mane -> human hair colors, but I guess not impossible.

It's just it makes things look a bit off since bronies are used to seeing the pony colored hair.

Is there any more authoritative way we can confirm this?



EDIT: Huahaha! What!?

So, I decided to check it out for myself, and in the Rainbow Rocks scene where it goes back to Ponyville/Equestria for a bit, I decided to compare Pinkie Pie's mane color from there, as well.

We have a disagreement!:

The accepted guide here: quasdar.deviantart.com/art/Vec… gives a color for Pony Pinkie's mane that is different from Human Pinkie's hair.

However, in Rainbow Rocks, Human Pinkie's hair has the same color as Pony Pinkie's mane!

This would seem to imply that Rainbow Rocks actually had a slight error in their pony colorations, since

Pony colorguide =/= Human hair color = pony mane color in Rainbow Rocks

And if we assume pony colorguide = pony mane color, then

pony mane color =/= pony mane color in Rainbow Rocks.

Thanks for your insight! I will point out that you are now using an obsolete version of the pony guide. It's been moved here, with awesome features such as one-click copy of the HEX color code. mlpvc-rr.ml/colorguide/1

It is highly likely that there is some difference due to encoding between the EqG movies and the Show. As stated, we used the BluRay to pick colors for EqG, but since BluRay hasn't been released for the Show (!), we use the iTunes version.

Oh. Wouldn't it be more consistent, then, to use the iTunes version of Rainbow Rocks?

Heh, well, the mlp-vectorclub still has that thing I linked for the pony vector quality guide. Have the colors changed or is that new database just for better convenience? I actually kind of find that single image to be very convenient, since I just pull it open, copy a little square of it that has the pony I'm vectoring, then I can paste that next to my vector as I work so it's sort of a color palate.

It's hard to say which have changed. Some have and some haven't. It's probably fine to use the old guide, although even that one you referenced has been usurped by a different image (Old: MLP-VectorClub Color Guide 2.2). Do check out the new guide; there are sprite versions of the pony as well, if you prefer to pick colors that way. mlpvc-rr.ml/colorguide/1

Pardon me, but the Download button isn't working properly and I am unable to download the ZIP file. I am wondering if you have any alternative links to the ZIP files or other methods of downloading the package. Thanks.

Interesting. I just tried it and it worked fine. Did you try a different browser? It is possible that dA decided to break when you were trying it. If it continues to be bothersome, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

As a note: Sunset's colors have been officially changed by DHX (confirmed by Ishi Rudell) from the post-RR shorts ("My Past is Not Today") and into Friendship Games (they are much softer than either of the first two films). We will be providing a updated color palette once we can get colors off the blu-ray version of the film. 

In the meantime, if you need Sunny's colors for any vectors, we'd recommend pulling from Hasbro's YouTube versions of the two post-RR shorts, or the existing FG promos. Links are:
- "My Past Is Not Today" www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqnbYU…
- "Friendship through the Ages" www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjno34…
- "Friendship Games Promo #1" www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdjgJb…

Do be careful of using colors off non-Hasbro versions of the shorts uploaded by others - there can be color-miscorrections in those.

As in... sonic the hedgehog? Or is sonic some vector term that i'm not familiar with? I've only been using Inkscape for a few weeks, but i don't see why you could not.

Then yeah, you should be able to make vectors. I mean, vectors can be anything. They're just especially popular for cartoons because of the simplistic designs.

Huh. Ya know, I only ask this 'cause I don't think anyone has ever thought to make a vector of a Sonic character, fan-made or otherwise. Think we could pass that idea around?

I know how that is. I just starting to learn to use Inkscape a few weeks ago. I can't say that I have any knowledge on Flash, but I recommend Inkscape. It's powerful and easy enough to use that even a complete art newb like me can do it.

Good luck with your OC.

Adagio's hair thing is labeled "headband", but Sonata's is "hairband"... IMO, either works and seems reasonably accurate. Guide text was chosen by thediscorded.

IMO it's a "better" VLC, but less user-friendly. Once again "better" is subjective and both are free so it's probably the same for most users.

Just to note to those asking, as we now have a blu-ray and have confirmed colors, we're going to be starting to expand this. Dazzlings are high priority.
