Headcanon: Mane 6 by Earthsong9405 Headcanon: Mane 6 by Earthsong9405
EDIT: So I went ahead and uploaded the colored version of this bad boy just 'cause. They aren't completely finished yet, though; still gotta clean up their colors and whatnot, but I can't at the moment so I'll just leave it as is for now. I'll also have it set up so you can just click on their names and it'll send ya to their separate "ref" thing, headcanon and all. C:


I wanted a break from schoolwork, so I decided to start work on a little project of sorts I've been meaning to do for a little while. It's not anywhere near finished, nor is it supposed to be anything elaborate, but this is what I have so far. 

A quick.... "sneak peak" of the sketches I'm going to be coloring for the very simplistic references of my headcanon versions of the Mane 6. I always thought it'd be sorta cool if the personality and basic color schemes weren't the only things differentiating the girls from one another, so I've been playing with their overall appearances and body types based on my headcanon of them.

For instance, they are in order from tallest to shortest, going left to right (quite honestly though, the only ones with any significant height differences are AJ, Twi, and Pinkie. The others are roughly the same height). Those with wings have different types of wings, some of the characters harbor scars from the past, Pinkie with feathering on her shoulder, ect. I've already gone into detail for each character in terms of appearance and such. To read it, just click on the characters links below; definitely do this before asking a question here. More likely than not, I've already answered a question about a specific character on their individual deviation.

But yeah. If that still doesn't answer your question or if you wanted to ask something else, feel free to ask. And as always, thanks a bunch for stopping by and looking at this messy doodlesketch thing. C:

This is so awesome! I love your headcanon.
I wonder, are thye all in the same scale? I mean, can I compare their height by this picture?

It should be to scale, but just in case it's not, here's a height chart of the girls with them standing side by side:

Why does Pinkie Pie have 'feathers'? She's not a pegasus.
Reply
:iconearthsong9405:
Earthsong9405 Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
It's genetic. You don't have to be a pegasus to have feathers along the shoulders and back area, especially when you have pegasus somewhere within your family's genetic history. Especially when that pegasus relation has been repeated in your family's genentic historyl (which it has over generations upon generations of different breeds repeatedly mating and creating offspring over the centuries) and when there has been a recent direct pegasus relative.

Both of Pinkie's parents have family lines that have repeated blood relation to pegasi. The most recent one being Pinkie's grandmother from her father's side and her great grandfather from her mother's side. She herself managed to gain the trait of feathers on her shoulders and back through this.

The classical representation of a unicorn is with a leonine tail and cloven hooves; I gave those characteristics to both Rarity and Twilight. o3o

Oh, wow!  That's a cool idea!

Everybody still looks like themselves, but their bodies match their occupations and lifestyles now.  Very interesting how you differentiated everyone!

I really like how AJ has horseshoes whereas everyone else has regular hooves.  Twilight's mane and tail also turned out awesome.

Save some talent for the rest of us! Lovely Shoujo Emoji (Whew Sigh) [V3] SOOO beautiful... 
What do you use to color them?
Also, what kind of pencils do you use? What paper? Do you have a tablet?
Aaaahhhh so sorry for all the questions!! :imsorry:  I have to know...
You're the best drawer I know! [DONT TELL ANYPONY, SHHHH!]

I use watercolors to color them. Just a regular lead pencil is what I draw with. I often use Bristol Vellum paper. No, I don't have a tablet yet. I don't mind questions so no need to apologize.

And I certainly wouldn't say I'm the best drawer, but I appreciate the compliment nonetheless. c:

it is possible to draw Sunset Shimmer in this "version"?

it's my favorite character ^^ 
Reply
:iconearthsong9405:
Earthsong9405 Featured By Owner Edited Jun 10, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
I'm afraid not. Sunset Shimmer isn't considered part of the "Mane 6" for me because she lives in an entirely different universe, she wasn't a part of the original group, and because my headcanon revolves around the actual canon show. As such, not much of anything from Equestria Girls will make it into my headcanon since it's a spinoff.

I may still draw her anyway because she's a cute character, but I may not give her headcanon, at least not until I watch the movies.
