Friendship is Magic

By TysonTan
This is a fanart
Description:

(c) Hasbro / Lauren Faust
Fan costume designed and artwork by Extvia.


My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is just magical! I had a very good time watching the show, probably because of how simple, natural, lovely, dig-gable and the harmony that puts every bits of its elements together.

Despite being a guy, I share some eccentric similarities with Twilight Sparkle, being a avaricious bookworm and a hopeless egghead with the tendency of snapping occasionally but badly under nonexistent, imaginative stress. Also as Twilight did in the beginning of the the series, I wasn't quite interested in "being friends" with the other 5 ponies since all of them somehow annoyed me a bit. But as I follow the show, like Twilight, I eventually came to love them all!

I concentrated my share of love to MLPFiM into this piece of fanart. I modified their appearances to fit my own design pattern which I can handle with full confidence. Wallpaper version are included as well. Hope you like the picture and the show!

:iconfyre-flye: And it's great to see the creator of MLPFIM is a Deviant too! XD

I quite like your style of art. The wings and horns are very good and unique. I think Anthros are creepy at best, but this was very well made. I like it. One thing I'd really watch is just how much skin some of these ponies are showing.
This is just over-all adorable, I LOVE it!
Also, if you ignore the fact that they are rainbow and have pony-heads, this is how, or closest to how I imagine them as humans. It's debatable whether or not Anthros are good, but this just proves that they are not all bad. Thanks for drawing this, good sir. Favorited.

First Critique, but I'll give it my best. This is one of the best Anthro Mane 6 collection's I've ever seen. This is something that's been done to death, so it's nice to see some creativity with them. I love the outfits, Especially Twilight, Rarity and Pinkies. It's cartoony, but still nicely detailed. Nice balance. I like the way you incorporated their Cutie Marks. It seems natural, not like a sewn on patch added after buying it, like it was part of the outfit to begin with. Absolute favorite? Rarity. Aside from envy, I love the way you did the dress. Keep up the good work!

This is one of the best anthro MLP pieces I've seen. It's not too pervish, the dressess match each character, the all around design is perfect. It deserves to be in a museum this is something people would pay for. What caught my attention was the pinkie pie design the fussy dress is something original.
The texture is astounding and the color is Devine. This masterpieces is the work of a true artist. The genius who makes art like this deserves to be know
I can't describe it in any other way so I can't wait to see more from you.

Wow <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/w/w…" width="23" height="15" alt=":wow:" title="Wow!"/> this is... amazing! I'm not really into them being humans, but this is one of a few exceptions! The poses are so fitting for every character, and some kind of motion or action is believable for each one. You did an amazing job with each character, but if my life depends on choosing the one you did your absolute best on (which it does, I'll bet you), I'd choose Twilight. Her outfit, her coloring and patterns, and her mane (hair? <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/e/e…" width="15" height="15" alt=":o" title=":o (Eek)"/>) are all just perfect. And might I add that Rainbow Dash reminds me of Sonic? Then again, so does <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/f/f…" width="15" height="15" alt=":fellaright:" title="Fella look right"/> The only reason I didn't have a full 5 stars on everything was due to the fact that you don't own these characters; Hasbro does. Overall, you did great! This is in my favorites for sure! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="17" height="16" alt=":star:" title="Star!"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="17" height="16" alt=":star:" title="Star!"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="17" height="16" alt=":star:" title="Star!"/>

Wow! This is just AWESOME. The background shows a lot of work put into it and the reflection is really cool! The character's outfits really fit them well. I couldn't think it better myself! I also like their little cute poses ^^. I dunno why but Rainbow Dash reminds me so much of Sonic!! And you can really see each person's own personality. Twilight is a let go kinda girl, her outfit shows she likes to standout. Rarity's outfit shows the passion for fashion in the pony's heart. Pinkie Pie's outfit shows she a crazy, fun-for-one wild horse that will stop for nothing. Apple Jack shows that she is a true horse. No pony, just a cowgirl horse. Oh fish carp, what's that little yellow's one's name? All well, have a brain fart. Any who, she she softness and kindness with her long sleeve dress. Rainbow Dash's outfit show's how much this pony likes to run, Run, RUn, RUN!! That's all I have for now <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/a/a…" width="19" height="19" alt="^^;" title="Sweating a little..."/> Keep up the awesome art!!!!!

You know, quite honestly, I usually don't like this kind of anthropomorphising with the Mane 6. However, here I must make an exception. This is, without a doubt not only the best MLPony-Anthro I've seen, but the best Horse Anthro I've ever seen. Everyone (Except Twilight) is dressed in a manner I would imagine them as being dressed as. (Twi would look more studious, and less model) Also, I enjou how you did the eyes, as it is both a different style and a fitting one too. Also, you are the first person I've seen have something around everyone's wrists, and each of them fit in their own way. I especially like AJ and PP's gloves. Clean, fun, and with a good background, you deserve all the positive credit you recieve. You really deserve the 4.625 avg. stars and a 20% cooler remark. Well done!

Very good job! I think you do a fairly good job on these, I just think they look more like human bodies with a pony face. If that's what you were aiming for than good job. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

For the most part I thought you did extremely well. The impact it made on me, was just breathtaking. Though I would like to see something a little different on the Rainbow pony, I thought it was right on the dot.

I hope this critique helped you, and I would love to see more of your artwork! Truly Addison Justin ~Great Job!

I'm simply blown away by this piece! The character designs are well done. The way their outfits and facial expressions match their personalities, takes the cake. The colors makes the piece pop out as well. The shading and color tone of the piece are just right, not to light and not to dark. It's nice to see a gray and white background every now and then. It helps bring out the bright and dark colors of the piece. I say Fluttershy my favorite out of the mane six. Really nice work dude! Can't wait to see more of your work.

This is such a amazing piece~!

I like how you make their outfits go with their personalities.
I think my personal favorite outfit is Fluttershy's because it symbolizes her shyness and girly personality. Nice work~!

Another thing I like is how you put them in different poses to give them a hint on what they are really like. Like for Pinkie Pie for example, you put her arms outstretched with a cheerful expression to show her bubbly and wild personality.

I like how you put them in human like bodies while keeping the pony features to show they are still ponies from the inside.

I also like how you made their manes as their hair. <3


Nice work~!

I'll admit I like this. Most of all the clothes, they really suit them. These are the first anthro versions of the mane six I've seen the even have the pony like ears. This is the best shading I've seen on them too. And the partial reflections on the floor, genius! I'll say it again I like this. However... I'm disappointed about the background. And it would seem more appropriate if the fingers where thicker. And the highlights in the eyes look more anime, and even then too large. The over all theme is overused to. Humanization is pretty freeing to a being who's only known tiny horse anatomy, but really if you draw humanoids better than ponies than draw humanoids. But again your the first I've seen do this right, even incorporated their cutie marks in a tasteful fashion and I would like to see more.

this is a very unique peice of art.
I love there poses, which creates another look of there personality.
I honestly love RainbowDash's look, which creates a tomboy look (Like me <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/let…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" title=":P (Lick)"/>)
Besides RD, I love AppleJAck. HEr hardworking personality comes out with her amazing outfit, and she has an adorable pose. I love how she spreads here feet from eachother.
while the others, are very beaufiful.
Pinky Pie is too adorable, with that pose and her over-girly outfit <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/let…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" title=":P (Lick)"/> I just love this
Twilight sparkle is very unique, like a nother critique has said. She has a moody, yet calm and relaxed look. Her pose is relaxed and you kept it simple.Her outfit is unique, but very simple.
Rarirty has an elegant and sophisticated look, in her pose, look, and outfit. With her hair-do: Curly at the ends, simple yet extravagent.
I love this. It brings out the characteristics of all six of 'em.
I love how you made everything stand out with the unique white and gray backround, with the reflection at there feet.
I am very much inspired by you're work, it shows a unique side of the characters.
There are a one or two errors: RainbowDash's calves are bigger the her thighs. Another critique has stated that, and I agree how her shows are a little confusing, and that was stated by the same critique too.
I love this, and I give it a 9/10 ☺

This is a very appealing piece of art.

The poses of the ponies are very well done and go in conjucture with their personality. For Twilight Sparkle she has a simple, intellectual, and nice looking pose and the smile ties it off with her being confident and nicely leaving an impression that is like her personality. Her hand on her hip shows relaxation, which I find ironic. Her clothes are the most unique at of all of the ponies. And adding an armband was a nice twist, making her unique. Also the use of geometric figures, and utilizing her colors make her outfit original and "spunky".
Rarity has a sophisticated, simple, refined look. The way her face was finished shows almost a look of a queen, which comes to mind all of the qualities of a queen including beauty and confidence. This does go nicely with her dream or cutie mark. Also if you look at the top of her dress it has a similar design to a Chinese dress, which is very unique because of that and the combination of the royal purple color that is her trimming at the end of her dress.
Pinky Pie has a nice care-free attitude, which goes along with her pose. The pose does have a slight childish aspect, which goes with her personality. If you also compare her clothes they are most likely similar to kids clothing. The way that the hands were done also help subtle hint the aspect of a child that she has. And you can also speculate that since she is the only that has her mouth wide open it adds to the likeness of a child, and she is also staggered. This might show something, or I;m over thinking this.
Apple Jack is a stubborn and sincere friend. Strong and devoted. Her costume resembles a cowgirl, but she pulls her weight around just like any one. Her get it down attitude is portrayed well in her facial expression and her hands. Her Costume is well done. The combination of shorts and chaffs, in my mind, show her girly qualities and her family ties to her farm. And the fact that she wears gloves is visually appealing in this work, and the fringes that were added to her poncho, gloves, and chaffs give her even more presence.
Fluttershy is very shy, hence her name. She is a kind, gentle spirit with a nice almost fragile state of mind and heart. The dress showed her feminine "touch". Also since her wings are down it somewhat shows her kind nature/intent. One detail that makes her dress unique is the fact that it is rounded at the top which compliments her sleeves, which is similar to a sweater. Her style is simple, clean, cute, and sensitive. Also the position of her hands are very well done, and slightly more detail than the other ponies. Her pink flats compliments her dress nicely. Her facial expression also give a very nice perception of Fluttershy's personality with raised eyebrows and a small open mouth.
Rainbow Dash's pose is excellent in showing her confidence, and tom-boyish nature. The sly smile, her pointed finger, ears facing backwards, wings open and backward facing, and downward facing eyebrows show an expression of challenging others, in a fun and competitive way. Her arms crossed also shows her tom boy aspect by showing the somewhat closed nature of one. Her mane seems like there is a blowing wind, which give her presence. Wristbands show of her sporty side, and the neutral color chosen for it goes nicely with the entire outfit. I am not sure if she is wearing pants also, or her calves are slightly bigger than her thighs, but it is a tad confusing. Also her sneakers confuse me, because of the white line above them I can't make heads or tails of the bottom of her body.
All of these ideas of clothing for each character is unique and well developed, and includes their cutie marks which is almost essential.
Each of their hair is nicely done. Twilight Sparkle's stays consistent with her original concept, and by that I mean that it is somewhat "encircles" the shape of her face.
Rarity's hair, in this picture, utilizes two different colors, making it appealing to the eyes. The shape her hair in this drawing is consistent with her original, even though it is the tiniest bit oddly shaped behind her.
Pinky Pie's is nicely done. It stays with original, but has its' own twist which I enjoy. Pinky Pie's hair originally has that "curve" or "bump" in the front, but you have made it curly like bubble gum. Also her hair is longer which gives her even more presence.
Apple Jack's hair is nicely done too. It was always imagined that her hair was almost "bushy", resembling her work ethnic. Her bangs are well done too. Also her hair attracts attention because it doesn't look like a "cylinder". Instead you make it look like an "ice cream", and excuse me for using so many things in quotations.
Fluttershy, just like Apple Jack, doesn't have just this kind of hair. Her hair is done nicely attracting eyes because of the subtle changes, making it look nice and appealing.
Rainbow Dash's hair is well done. Not only what was previously mentioned about her hair, but also the sharpness of the ends look well done and gives her a certain aura. Something else to note is the fact that her tail is the only tail that is partly in front of her. Her tail also looks full, and the fact that the color of her tail are the colors of the rainbow it makes her pop.
The coloring overall is great. You never used black or dark tones. No in this case I do not consider the grey to be dark. The colors of all of the ponies are consistent, and well organized. The shading is fair. The only part that is a little troubling is the shape and coloring of the indent in Apple Jacks chaffs. Although it is clear that she is standing upright the shading makes it look like her knees are outwards. Making it look like she's unbalanced, unstable, or about to fall.
The background is simple and versatile making it a nice and unique background. Also having waves/curves in the background makes it look almost calm, plus since they are in different colors it makes it noticeable enough to recognize the technique, but doesn't overpowering any of the focus of the art.One more thing that I personally liked the most was the floor. You made a cool mirror image of the ponies feet and it was blurred too. That added effect was pretty cool.
Your antro style is impressive and the originality is
irresistible. It was wonderful to critique this work. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

Thank you for writing such a long long critique for my picture! And sorry for not checking my inbox for such a while and I totally missed it. -_-

I really appreciate the effort you had put in digging the details and made comments on them. Knowing my work has been reviewed thoroughly and enjoyed is really a honor for me.

Thank you very much! ^^

I'm a fan of MLP from G1 (Generation 1).
I've only only been aware of MLP: FIM from here.
I have to admit I've always wondered why the creators of MLP never gave the ponies helpers. I mean that I like intelligent Ponies, but there is only so much they can do with thier mouths.
I've always saw them in my mind's eye as anthros and thought that the stories they shown on the MLP Cartoon would've been better if they went that route or took the route that was taken with Bravestar's 3030 and gave them the ability to switch between Anthro form (for doing everyday tasks) and Quadraped form (for hauling their tails when they want to move FAST)

but that's my take on them. It's a great pic.

Even though this is bassed off of a sperate source, it shows an amazing depth of originality in the design. Each piece of their features really expresses who they are; the horns, ears and wings are unlike anything I've ever seen, the arrangement of the cutie marks are unique.

I feel as though I've over looked this in the past. I'm proud to share my thoughts as in depth now. I will personally point out how exposed Applejack is, but this is after all merely a personal stand opinion and doesn't in the slightest effect the outcome of my rating.
