Friendship is Magic by Yamino Friendship is Magic by Yamino
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
NerdOfAnArtist Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
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.
Scarecrow113 Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
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 ? 

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:
2ButterBall3 Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
To be honest I really don't mind dark twilight, I just don't understand Dark Rarity.
eleanorlover101 Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I think this is great but I think fluttershys skin is a bit dark compared to other things I saw of her. But I admire your uniqness. I love ur drawings
Skadadle Featured By Owner May 17, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is cool! I just can't help but think that Rarity looks like Mulan somehow...

I've seen that "racism" before and I just don't get it... I think it's rather cute. It's weird to see a light skinned Twilight cuz I've seen so many dark ones though. XD Awesome.
AshamedAngel343 Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2012
Omg CUTE! Hey check out my Photos!

Rarity as a vaguely Asian woman...

I LOVE that you made them all different types of ethnicities~! <3
I was JUST getting tired of seeing all white anthropomorphed versions
of them all. . . then I saw this. Beautiful, just beautiful.

Xilent-Knights Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I actually prefer the dark skinned twilight over a light skinned one XP I dunno, maybe it's because it goes really well with her colors or maybe it's cause her pony self's coat was a dark color.
Anyway, I really like how Rarity is Asian XD suits her
Friendship IS Diversity :) (their not all Unicorns and Pegasuses xP)
BenRG Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2012
They were, Twilight reflected, the craziest, most random and most exasperating girls she had ever met. Sometimes they made her want to scream or just hide. And sometimes they made her laugh with joy and feel glad that she was alive. Because they were her best friends and she wouldn't have it any other way.
Tobbeno1 Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
These are so accurate ._.
aurora-celest Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012
I always saw Twilight as a dark-skinned Asian, like a Cambodian or Filipina. Fluttershy I saw as Indian, not just because of her long hair but because India has been one of the oldest supporters for animal rights. I saw Rainbowdash as a sporty, spunky black girl who loves to dye her hair. I imagined Rarity as a a very girly Korean fashonista. And I saw Applejack and Pinkie Pie as white. You basically got most of my ideas spot on! :D
kittykat2394 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012
I think twilight is latina so I can see she being that color

You captured them and their likeness rather well.

Great job! :3

I can't tell, is Fluttershy Indian?
mushroomjardin Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012
mushroomjardin Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012
I would imagine Applejack and RD as ruddy like you made them. Good job. Perfect colors for all of them but I think Fluttershy would be the pale type :)
Marco-Pato Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2012
