Galloping Gala by phantom-inker Galloping Gala by phantom-inker
My wife is a huge fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Me, personally, I can give-or-take it; it's cute, but not the sort of thing I'd be a rabid fan about. But she is, so this was born.

Lest there be any doubt, this is Applejack, Twilight Sparkle, and Rainbow Dash, sporting the dresses they (apparently) would have worn to the Galloping Gala had they actually been centaurs at the time.

I think I did a decent job of capturing their personalities, and adapting their dresses to a vaguely humanoid form. Applejack looks pretty confident and Texan, like she could round up cattle or start a squaredance any minute; Twilight Sparkle looks like an adorably cute dork in a pretty dress and who's been watching just a little too much anime; and Rainbow Dash looks like she's somewhere between a gamer grrl and a sports grrl and will kick your butt if you try to argue the point with her.

So, well, there ya go. I'm sure that my wife will have me color this properly in the next several days, so stay tuned for more. Here's hoping you like the lineart, though!

(And let's hear it for G-rated artwork for a change, too! :-D)

I'm still hoping for centaurs in the current incarnation (inTAURnation?) of MLP, but not villains like Tirek.

Maybe a crossover with EG and MLP characters only in the opposite direction?

Lovely lineart in any case!  AJ's great as always (love the hat!) Any chance/hope that there might be the other three?

Doubtful, but who knows?  But I do expect one of these years to finish coloring these three, at least.

Ponies or Centaurs, it's all good (but your right; color would make them 20% cooler, huh?)

Hahaaha the reason I was suggesting Rainbow for this is because these are the WORST PONIES!

*gets beaned by all the people who have different pony tiers*

But seriously, I love all the ponies and every pony is the best pony at what it is that they do.

But Rarity is best pony, Followed by Pinkie, Followed by Fluttershy, Then Rainbow Dash, Then Twilight, and then Applejack.

The art's fantastic and I quite enjoyed watching it's progress in the stream.

Ehheh... my wife would disagree and claim these are the best three. So, uh, hrm, well, deal with it?

I'm not a huge fan of the show, but of the lot of them, I think I like Twilight the best; she's a dork and a bookworm, and I can relate to that so much that I married a girl just like her ;)

Honestly, I just find best pony/worst pony arguments hysterical because some people get so worked up about candy colored ponies.

*shrug* Beats me. The weird fandom surrounding this show just boggles my mind regardless. It's cute, and sometimes has a good line, but it's not exactly Shakespeare. I missed the obsession boat when it left the dock, and I'm not sure if it can be boarded again.

Quite a change from the simple dress to the Gala dress. It looks great finished.

I may at some point post a separate copy of Twilight wearing the "plain birthday dress." I drew it, so I might as well share it. But the finished version of this will include the girls in their Galloping Gala dresses.

I've been drawing plenty over the last few weeks. I just haven't been finishing things frequently enough to be able to post them. I have dozens upon dozens of half-drawn pictures that aren't worth posting.

If I had to pick a favorite, she'd probably be the one. AJ's not a bad second, but, heh, well, I married a girl who's similar in many ways to a real-life version of Twi, if ya see my meaning ;)
