UPDATE, December 14th, 2014:  I changed the proportions and layout a bit so it could potentially work better as an actual poster.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, this was a long-time coming, but I finally finished page two. There are many many pages to come. The next ones will feature the human characters.

Once again, this is all a prelude to my plans to adapt a certain truly awesome pony fanfiction into a comic series. www.fimfiction.net/story/71660…

So here we are with another ten G1 pony characters. I hope you like.

Page One: starbat.deviantart.com/art/G1-…
Page Two: You are Here.
Page Three:  starbat.deviantart.com/art/G1-…

As always, any and all constructive criticism is welcome.




My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic, and its style of illustration, are the creations of Lauren Faust.  :iconfyre-flye:
Original G1 pony characters are the creations of Bonnie Zacherle.

North Star? More like Northwest Star. I wish I had a stronger sense of direction.

I´d love see some them appear on the current TV series! :nod:

Well, some of them already have, in some form.  Though the show creators have their own design ideas. 

I think of these guys as belonging to their own universe, or to a long-past chapter of Equestrian history.  ;)

  I think that some them could back on the future,like special guests on the new series episodes. :aww:

This is such a wonderful project. :) Glad you're doing it and the art looks very nice. (Although, um... the G1 ponies are not the creation of Lauren Faust.)

Thank you very much.  :D

Yes, I know.  I only credited Lauren with the FiM setting and with the "illustration style".  This style isn't quite different enough from it, so I thought I should credit her.

Now that you mention it, perhaps I should credit Bonnie Zacherle for the G1 characters...  XD;

It would be nice. After all, as a certified Dreamer, I'm certainly prepared to say that while it is undeniable that Lauren did a wondrous job of revival of the franchise, as the creator of My Little Pony, Bonnie most certainly deserves her share of kudos and adulation as well.

When u use the term "sparkle eye" ponies, what does that mean?
Starbat's avatar
StarbatHobbyist Digital Artist
 I don't believe I've ever used the terms "sparkle" eyes.  It is "twinkle-eyed" or "Jewel-eyed".

I am simply referring to those G1 ponies who have jewels embedded in their eyes.  Obviously, "twinkle-eye" ponies was just a marketing ploy that Hasbro used to sell toys back in the day, but there is actually a somewhat interesting story behind it from the old G1 comic strips.

Basically, G1 Applejack runs away from home and stumbles into an underground mine where an evil wizard has a group of ponies enslaved to dig up jewels for him.  The ponies had been blinded from darkness of the cave.  Applejack ultimately leads them to freedom, but the Jewel Wizard's jeweled throne explodes upon his death, causing shards of jewels to become embedded in the slave-ponies' eyes.  These magical jewels cured the ponies' blindness, but those ponies would forever after have "jeweled" eyes.

So that's the story.  In the fanfiction for which I am creating these sheets, the author developed the above story into a fairly dark and violent interpretation.
