Hiya, folks. So I've been pretty into doodling humanized ponies lately, and I've also been looking through a lot of humanized art. And I've noticed a few things about the way people comment on humanizations. Particularly when it comes to the way that artists might interpret a canon pony character's race or nationality. Strap in, this is gonna get rant-y.
Ready? Okay. First off:
None of the ponies have an assigned human race or design. No fan interpretation is more correct than another.
Lauren Faust herself has said that the ponies' fur color has no significance in assigning a human race for them. And of course, the mane six have the exact same pony model, so possibilities are endless when imagining human body types to give them. So if that's true, why do I see so many fans getting outright hostile when an artist humanizes a pony in a way they don't like? Especially when the humanization isn't White. Or fat, or just a bit curvy. Or wearing clothes the commenter doesn't lik
