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:

its so awsome but fluttershy has cuts and a bite mark why is that

Fluttershy has these scars because of her profession. Dealing with wild animals, despite her unique ability to communicate and connect with them, is bound to sometimes end up dangerous. Despite how much she loves her animal friends, Fluttershy isn't naive; she knows they are still capable of harming her. Her ability to use The Stare, as well as her shy charm, is usually enough to tame a wild beast, but sometimes it isn't immediate. And there have been instances where she's been attacked. For the most part, however, these instances usually come from when the animal is wounded and confused due to pain, lashing out out of instinct instead of actually meaning it.

The claw marks on her hind leg came from the bear we see from the canon show, something he still feels guilt over. The bite mark on her front leg comes from an abused pet she tried to coax out of hiding (didn't work the first time, but she eventually convinced it).The scars on her side are from smaller incidents, but the cuts were deep enough to leave a noticeable mark on her body.

Question i probably know the answer to: Why does Pinkie Pie have shoulder feathers? is it because her earlier generation, Surprise, was a pegasus?

I've answered that question in the artist comment.

I really adore this, I really do (hell, I'm doing a picture right this second of a pegasus with tail feathers and feathery shoulders...I'll credit you when I'm done). I do have a question, though: the single-digit bird-like claws Rainbow Dash and Twilight have near the wingtips (technically speaking) in front of the colorful long feathers they have. I know it looks cool, don't get me wrong, but why do some pegasi/alicorns have them?

:iconearthsong9405:
Earthsong9405 Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
It's called the alula. It's an actual thing that some birds have, which basically acts as a "thumb" of sorts. Some pegasi and alicorn have them simply because they do; there's really no other reason for it.

Ah, alright. The alula does look cool though. ^^
