The Mane Six (In the Key of G1) by kaylathehedgehog The Mane Six (In the Key of G1) by kaylathehedgehog
*collapses*

Good Lord Almighty, I did not expect to take almost two weeks to finish this. Take it from me, friends, try not to let what seems to be a simple project blow up into something bigger than you orignally had planned.

The amount of time taken aside, I am extremely pleased with how this turned out. I wasn't sure how well the G4 ponies would translate into G1 style, but after Twilight's test run, it works beautifully. Rarity and Fluttershy were a bit worrisome because the bases I used for them were originally Earth Ponies, but thankfully, everything worked out. I also thought it would be a nice touch to make the scene look like one of the backcards from the 1980s.

I'm just happy I'm finally finished with it and can move on.

Apple jack is based off the G1 Apple Jack from rescue at midnight castle

Twilight sparkle and twilight velvet are also based off the twilight from G1 rescue at midnight castle

Fluttershy is based off Posey from the mlp G1 and G2

Rainbow dash's personality and adventurous streak is based off the G1 firefly from rescue at midnight castle

And yeah we know that Spike is based off the Spike from the G1 mlp 'n' friends series

I run a pony page on FB called mylittlepony fan-world also a forum called www.littleponyfan-world.com I'm looking for an artist to help me with desgins for like the forums banners and pony posters and stuff for the FB page I have. Was wondering if you or someone you know would be up for the job I need doing?

I'll think on it, and see what I can come up with.  I actually already have a pony vector for each generation, so the only thing I'd need to make would be the rainbow and Dream Castle.

You should make them in the other generations. :)

No! Bad idea! "Other generations" includes Newborn Cuties! *shudders*


Better suggestion:

you should make them in the other generations, excluding Newborn Cuties.

Brilliant! Applejack was probably the easiest one considering she actually had a G1 counterpart I'm guessing. Really interesting. We must lure...I mean...lead...more G4 fans here...see what happens.

Thanks!  She was definitely easy when it came to choosing her ribbon color.  I just swiped the same color her G1 ancestor had. 

I also swiped Cotton Candy's ribbon for Pinkie and Posey's for Fluttershy.

Intriguingly, instead of using their counterpart's ribbon colors from earlier generations, I probably would have used their eye color.  Still looks goof though.

Perhaps, but I think the colors worked pretty well.  I know that, with Twilight, at least, between her coat and her tail, a purple ribbon wouldn't have showed up well.
