New print for AX!

~Shalie and I were just talking about how the MLP gjinkas seem to have "canon" outfits. In other words, all the fan art we've seen of them seem to share similar clothing styles as if they were canon to the show.

I admit, I was guilty of that when drawing my button set.

But, I wanted to draw these ponies in MY style. With corsets, collared blouses, floofy skirts, and elegant, balanced coordinates... while still portraying their individual personalities.

That being said, I hope you like my take on the mane six!

Pinkie could have used more cupcake prints on her skirt but OMG I LOVE HER!! ALSO LOVE APPLEJACK IN PANTS! 
The others I've seen are actually already based on or inspired by the EG version, but your design is so far my favorite~!! :love:
May I please use this for cosplay references?

I have noticed that the DA community likes to draw the "human" Mane 6 in the same clothes style. I find it interesting how these things somehow get started and everyone decides to go along with the flow. I agree with some of it like Twilight wearing a sweater vest, but I love your style too!

Woah... It's so awesome! :iconrdsoawesomeplz:

Sweet! I remember seeing this when I met you at Anime Conji! Thanks for the button collection, BTW. I love what you do, such variety. You've definitely taken the humanized MLP idea and made it your own. I can't go into a lot of detail because I'd ramble, but even here, I'm speechless! :D

Can you make a gender-swapped version of this, please?
mikurski Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013
These are fantastic! Totally giving me all kinds of cosplay ideas.

yep, I like it! :D

It is really nice to see Applejack wearing something other then Daisy Dukes. Not exactly sure how practical a corset is on a farm, but still, it's something different.

And I really have to say you absolutely NAILED Pinkie, she looks perfect.

That moment where you love a piece and you want to favorite it... only to find out that it's already in your favorites.

I unfavorited this just so I could favorite it again.
nekocat91 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012
could you make gender bender part for them?

Nothing lasts forever. In the fullness of time, even Celestia and Luna's time must come to an end. Thus it was that the Elements found new champions.

I love it when people come up with their OWN designs for them, and you did an awesome job! I'm sick of seeing Twilight in sweater vests and Applejack in plaid. Speaking of AJ, I love her skin tone~ But yeah. It's all over done and unoriginal.
driflooning Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks so much! I'm glad you like my different take on them ^^
I figured since AJ is outside all the time, she'd have a tan. I wish I had added more skin tone variety among them, though.
jagg17 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
They still look nice, regardless~ Keep up the good work!

Very beautiful! I love how their clothing has a few similar things from their Grand Galloping Gala dresses, such as Rainbow Dash's hairpiece, Rarity's diamond pin, etc. For some reason, Twilight's, Pinkie's, and Applejack's outfits remind me of Homura's, Madoka's, and Mami's from Puella Magi Madoka Magica. In fact, these all wouldn't look out of place in a magical girl series. :XD:
I also adore how you removed Twilight's and Rarity's horns when humanizing them. A lot of artists don't do that, and it just reeks of "uncanny valley" to me. e_e

very interesting style you took on their outfits very lovely!!! and i love your human forms 2!! :heart:
TurkeySM Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2012  Hobbyist Writer! This really caught my eye! And I can definitely see why looking closer at it! Out of the many humanized ponies I've seen, this is by far one of the best! Your choice of clothes for the girls is excellent! I care not about what's "canon" and what's not; your style and take on the mane six is beyond wonderful!

I'll admit, Applejack's outfit seems a bit too formal for someone who does farm work, but it is still very nice! The same thing goes for Pinkie's gloves. I feel that she's the type of person who likes a "hands-on" experience, and gloves will just get in the way. But that's just my opinion, and I still greatly enjoy the style regardless! After all, you are going for a more formal theme I think, so these choices work out in the end. Sorry if it seems that I'm contradicting myself.

I can see several gala gown elements in here also such as the Rainbow Dash's hairpiece. For a moment, I thought Pinkie's outfit was her GGG outfit until I looked more closely.

I enjoy the schoolgirl theme in Twilight's outfit. It definitely fits her studious nature!

I like the way you put together the composition of the picture as well. You seemed to have put them in vertical levels, paired by pony race. I especially like the way you had Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy stand opposite of each other, and I like how they're both having a hand clenched upwards. It kind of reminds me how they're similar and different at the same time. The way you line up the elements is also well done. It's smooth and flows well, adding a sense of balance to the overall image. Your shading and line work are both very well done, and these too add to the beauty of the image.

It's a small thing, but I like your choice of font. It doesn't clash with the picture and you even wrote it out so that there's equal weight on each side. I like that a lot! It seems that balance was a major theme of this picture.

Sorry I didn't talk too much about the clothing. Actually, I'm sorry I just rambled on in the first place! I'll say in sum here that you succeeded in portraying their individual personalities, and your style is certainly one that stands out and needs to be seen more!

deathtoner Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2012
I vote you print this on a card, about the size of a standard deck, write something clever on the back, then sell them, i would totally buy one. Or you could include them with your keychains and buttons

I love the clothes! You did a good job portraying their personalities with your style instead of the same old thing.
