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
- AI file for each guide (includes swatches) (PDF compatible)
- PDF with each guide on its own page
- Inkscape swatches coming eventually...

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

I just added an "intent to create" note in the description, but it won't happen for a good while yet. In the mean time, pick your own colors from the best screenshot(s) you can find.

Download the package, open the PNG image in your favorite editor, and use the eye-dropper tool to sample the color.
If you use Illustrator, open the AI file and use the swatches.

You can pull colors from my FS vector. Thanks for the reminder though.

Are you going to update the guide with new characters and new outfits?
Reply

mewtwo-EX Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014
We now have colors for all the mane 6, so I just have to get around to putting it together. Hopefully soon. :)

Alternate outfits may come later, although they will be a challenge since they're mostly shown in the dark.

Rainbow Rocks won't happen until the BluRay of that is released.

Will there be Color Guides for EG Pinkie and Fluttershy? :?

The plan is for those, as well as Flash. Colors still need to be picked for PP & FS, and vectors made of Flash and FS. Keep checking back...they'll be up eventually.

Average the individual R G and B values.

Yay! Finally accurate colors!

Are there any plans on including any of the background/side characters?

Seeing as it took this long to finally get this much together, it's highly doubtful in the near future. We still need to do the Fall Formal dresses. I won't say it won't happen, but it will probably be a long time from now if it does.

That said, who are you looking for? Enough requests may result in things getting done.

A rather difficult one actually... I'm MAINLY looking for Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon in their Fall Formal dresses. I do doubt the likely hood of ever getting the correct colors, though. T_T

Another, more reasonable one, is the athletic, tennis inclined girl I call "Love". =p I think one of the best full shots of her is at the very end of the cafeteria song. She's dancing with Vinyl Scratch right before it cuts to Sunset Shimmer. I know she's everywhere in the movie, I just remember that one scene best (cause I'm vectoring it lol).

Your best bet for timely acquisition would be to follow the methodology we used and get your own colors. Feel free to contribute them to this project via a group note when you do.

Sure thing! I can do that with Love but as for DT and SS, their dresses are never shown in "natural" light, just the various colored lights of the dance. I've tried all kinds of mathematical ways to try and derive the correct colors based on the color difference of their skin in regular light and dance light, but I just can't figure out any formula that will consistently work for red, green, and blue under all conditions. I bet a professional painter could intuitively guess a close, near-correct color but it likely wouldn't be the actual color. :/

But yeah, when I get a chance, I'll help you guys out! What program do you capture the screens from? I've noticed that a capture from, say, VLC can offer different colors than the same capture from, say, Media Player Classic.

Probably the best thing to do would be to sample the "outside" colors from the fight with SS, and reverse-engineer the night filter by comparing skin, hair and Spike colors. :devpirill-poveny: did something like this in his attempt to get SSPony colors (since she's only shown at night). Depending on the success of it, she'll be added to the color guide in the future.

We all used VLC for consistency. I guess I should add that to the description.
