Original drawings by myself, color vector versions by :icondentist73548: Dentist73548.

This was a 10-pony commission project. All the characters are OCs and I put a lot of thought into balancing the OCs' original designs with making sure every character is recognizable as the characters from the films.

Dentist worked very hard for quite a long time vectoring all the tiny details and getting all the color characters just right. When he'd finished each character, I would change the color schemes. I think the color scheme is the most important thing in an OC. There's a very subtle difference between a pleasing color scheme and a bad one.

Let's give Dentist a big hand for all his hard work on the color vector versions.

Our cast, clockwise from lower left:

Pick as Scootaround [Temple of Doom]
Inquiry as Sallah [Raiders/Last Crusade]
Soul Waker as Cairo Swordspony [Raiders]
Daring Do as Indiana Jones
OhNine (S0rr0wsEdge) as Arnold Toht [Raiders]
Snapshot as Mola Ram [Temple of Doom]
Captain Courage as Dr. Henry Jones Sr. [Last Crusade]
Aurafluff as Marion Ravenwood [Raiders/Crystal Skull]
TerraFirma as Elsa Schneider [Last Crusade]
Frolic as Irina Spalko [Crystal Skull]

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic was created by :iconfyre-flye: Lauren Faust and is owned by Hasbro.

Just wondering, how did you came up with the names? I once thought what would be the names of the ponified Indiana Jones villains, but nothing came up.

These were existing OCs which I was asked to incorporate.

Oh, ok. By the way, I thought the name Spalcolt instead of Spalko before.

Perfect for a spin-off TV series or parody movie.
