MLP: Friendship is even wonderful by Sallymon MLP: Friendship is even wonderful by Sallymon
Holy crap, I don't want your opinion on how they should look, or what skin color you'd prefer- I draw, and I'm allowed to draw how I want.
It's pretty disappointing that some people can't accept the headcanon's of artists who personally like it their way. 
You're free to have your own headcanons and opinions, idgaf, but that doesn't mean we're forced to listen to em'. Show some decency, and respect the way people like them in terms of appearances.

I'm not here to pleasure your needs of how characters should be drawn- it's entirely up to the artists to express their imaginations. Not the viewer. 

Love and tolerance my ass!

This is exquisite ^_^ I particularly like the way you've done the eyes - they have a 90's Anime/Manga look to them that is wonderful.

I've seen Twilight drawn as a black girl a lot. Is there any particular reason you do? I don't hate it or anything (I kind of like delicious brown girl Twilight), I'm just curious. I love the way you draw them by the way.

Thanks, mate. Now to answer your question - The reason I drew her black was how fitting it was for her. (People may have different opinions, but then again I don't even know why some people bother asking me why she's black :/) But I have come to like "asian/ middle-eastern" versions of Twilight more.

Va fint du skuggar nuförtiden :)
Jobba gärna lite mer på texturer dock. Typ hur olika tyger beter sig. Kjolen ser t.ex lite stel ut och jeans har inte riktigt samma homogena färg som chinos och sömmarna är liksom grövre (nu kanske du var ute efter chinos, antog bara jeans eftersom hon var lite "cowboy"-aktig). Skjortans ärmar ser också ut att vara olika långa, ty upprullningen på hennes vänstra arm borde sitta tättare. Skjortärmar är ju ganska smala vid handlederna så när man rullar upp så sitter det ganska tight.

Keep up the good work! Jag gillar dina verk och att se din utveckling :)

Thanks bro - skön feedback, jo, tyckte det jag själv - det kan vara svårt att hålla koll på hur olika tyger fungerar, men nu när du säger det. Så är det något jag bör tänka på tills nästa gång. Tack för feedbacksen. Det här är vad jag vill se från folk, inte direkt kritisering som vissa personer gör. :D

Ah, this is adorable! I really like the details, like Twilight's earrings & Applejack's belt buckle. Looking forward to seeing how you humanise the other characters. ;)
If you revise this again, you might want to make AJ's hand bigger and adjust how the angle of Dash's raised arm is drawn so it looks a bit less stiff and more like flexing.

Haha, no sweat, flawless is really high to aim for.
I just figure every drawing is an opportunity to practice & learn; even really really good illustrations will still have parts where you'd go differently if you were redoing it.

id like to know why people think twi is black, im not being racist but i dont see it, or why she would be the only one who is black

:iconselfunderstared:
selfunderstared Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2011
Well, seeing as how she's purple, human versions of the character are wide open. Most people in this (& other) fandom(s) assume default whiteness for any character due to white privilege. Since she has a darker coat than the other main ponies, though, even some people who aren't specifically aware of their privilege will make their human version of Twilight Sparkle a person who appears to be of african, indian or middle-eastern descent to maintain the same level of contrast between her hair and face. Some people do all their humanizations ethnically & culturally diverse, and I think I've seen at least one dark-skinned version of each main cast member, but due to the white=default thing, you more often have a humanization where it's mostly white girls of average-slender build except that Twi is darker and Dash is athletic.

One is being a bit racist when they need a special reason for a purple horse being non-white, but it's in an oblivious way, not a malicious one. Racism isn't "you are a member of the klan/you are 100% not-racist" but a messy thing that everyone needs to work on continuously, like how keeping bad breath at bay means brushing your teeth every day, not that you eat a dinner mint once and never smell like garlic again. :)

so you think of it like there voice actors huh? so does that mean that timmy turner is a girl or that derpy is a boy because of there voice actors?

070809xdr Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
That's a pretty harsh vibe I'm getting from that comment for how I think of the mane 6 looking as a human also, Timmy is already a human, the voice actor for Derpy is Tabitha St. Germain, a girl and your using the wrong form of there, its their as in the possessive plural. Also the voice actors give the character personality I'm not saying its by gender at all but, my imagination would relate a voice made by a white woman would come from a white woman, if I had a black man and a white man and entered a conversation with them without being able to see either of them do you think I'd be at a complete loss of which one was talking?

because her fur is purple which makes her the darkest pony out of the mane 6 which makes people imagine her as a african american.
