Hey, sorry guys, but I'll probably never finish this. Though, I did say probably, there's still a chance I might come back and finish this animation some day.
Many people are curious about my design choices, and of course they have all right to be! So I'll explain:
Q: Why are they wearing old timey dresses?
A: Because the first few seasons of the show (which I mostly based this on) always kinda reminded me of the victorian era or at least the period of the early 20th century technology wise even though it has some elements of modern day. So they are wearing the fashion of that time period (mostly victorian though). Of course mixed with fantasy elements cause come on, that's basically the show! XD
Q: What's with the ethnicities?
A: Well, since the show was produced in North America which is a very multicultural place and diverse place, I wanted to reflect that with the designs!
When designing the main six, I was going by their fur. Since purple is the darkest secondary color, Twilight would be the darkest of the bunch, then Rainbow Dash and so on.
Q: What do the rest of the mane six look like?
A: I made a speedpaint of all of them humanized actually. It's on my second channel, so if you're interested in seeing it, here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLY3fw9hpEE

Edit: I'm apparently an SJW now because I drew a few characters with darker skin. Makes perfect sense, can't argue with that logic!
