Until you all shared its magic with me by JonFawkes Until you all shared its magic with me by JonFawkes
Finally! I've put about 25 hours or so over the course of a couple of weeks working on this, and finally it's done!

Done in the same spirit and style as my last one. Here's a little hint: Put this picture next to my other one :3

These characters were much harder to design since they don't have a lot of canon personality to base designs off of. I went with a lot of fanon for this one, so this is dedicated to all of my fellow bronies. And yes, Vinyl Scratch's eyes are red.

I did try to include a lot of small tiny references to the fanon, see if you can spot them!

They're ordered in the order I designed them, like my last picture. I did purposely draw them in pairs, as per the fanon.

Carrot Top and Bon Bon's hair was soooo hard to design. Lyra's was hard to color. I tried to stay true to the spirit of the character designs from the show, I hope that shows.

Lemme tell you, a Cello is amazingly hard to draw too.

All of the backgrounds are screenshots from various moments in the show. I probably should have positioned carrot top a little better so you can see the carrot orchard from the Cider episode.

I'll probably post renders of all 12 ponies I've drawn so far in celebration soon, so stay tuned for that.

I think that's all for now. Please fave and comment, I love seeing comments.

Is Vinyl wearing Octavia's pants as they have her cutie mark on them?

I put them there partially because I thought it looked cool and partially to allude to their relationship

Wow... you really nailed Octavia and Vinyl

best favorite so far for me: Octavia :3
So this is what Bon bon and Lyra look like as humans. I'm curious, will they ever be showing up in your ask blog? Because I love that blog.

Lyra has already made an appearance really early on. I'm hoping to let them appear but I haven't really received many questions where their appearance would be relevant

I like how Lyra and Bon Bon have matching charm bracelets with their cutie marks on them ;P

I'm glad to see someone humanizes Derpy and dresses her like an adult.

:iconajhmmplz: Not sure if this comment is sarcastic or not

Mm, partially. Most of the human-derpy fanart I've seen have her in some ridiculous getup. Maybe it's just me, but I think that derpy's actually pretty smart.
