Yesterday I was alerted that one of my Twilight fanarts was used in a rather racist "Pony Confessions" submission. Basically, they were saying they "hated" seeing humanized Twilight being dark-skinned. Boo-hoo-hoo. Make your own fanarts then, sucka!

I think fluttershy is the darkest because she's from Kenya.
Twilight is latina

Great idea on a humanized Mane Six! A dark-skinned Twilight actually works because that skin tone works well with the colors of her hair. It's sad that some fans are so offended and hateful toward a black Twilight. I can only guess it's just plain old racial prejudice and bigotry.

In my own fan art I take the human Twilight from Equestria Girls and give her this skin tone. I also give the human Mane Six new names similar to their pony names. I hope you like my version of your wonderful idea.

Since they aren't human in the canon, they can look however you want.  Love it.  :>

I don't know why everyone always draws human!Twilight as dark skinned, but I don't think it matters

I think it has to do mostly with what their coat color is before they've been humanized. Seeing as Twilight's is a darker purple, I suppose it makes more sense for her to have darker skin.

I guess that makes sense. But most of the ponies have very brightly colored coats.

The power of love is a curious thing 
Make a one man weep, make another man sing 
Change a hawk to a little white dove 
More than a feeling that's the power of love 

Tougher than diamonds, rich like cream 
Stronger and harder than a bad girl's dream 
Make a bad one good make a wrong one right 
Power of love that keeps you home at night 


You don't need money, don't take fame 
Don't need no credit card to ride this train 
It's strong and it's sudden and it's cruel sometimes 
But it might just save your life 
That's the power of love 
That's the power of love 

First time you feel it, it might make you sad 
Next time you feel it it might make you mad 
But you'll be glad baby when you've found 
That's the power makes the world go'round 


And it don't take money, don't take fame 
Don't need no credit card to ride this train 
It's strong and it's sudden it can be cruel sometimes 
But it might just save your life 

They say that all in love is fair 
Yeah, but you don't care 
But you know what to do 
When it gets hold of you 
And with a little help from above 
You feel the power of love 
You feel the power of love 
Can you feel it ? 
Hmmm 


It don't take money and it don't take fame 
Don't need no credit card to ride this train 
Tougher than diamonds and stronger than steel 
You won't feel nothin' till you feel 
You feel the power, just the power of love 
That's the power, that's the power of love 
You feel the power of love 
You feel the power of love 
Feel the power of love

My headcanon says that human Twilight is dark-skinned anyway, which is fabulous :heart: And everyone else looks nice, too. I love the skin tone you gave Fluttershy :love:

To be honest I really don't mind dark twilight, I just don't understand Dark Rarity.

AWESOME! They all look so cool! And I have absolutely NO issue with a dark-skinned Twilight. She (and all the rest of them) look awesome! Well done!
