MLP- Mothers 1 by Earthsong9405 MLP- Mothers 1 by Earthsong9405
The colors are all thanks to :iconnaczosowyponiakpl:, so you guys be sure to stop by his DA and give him the props he deserves! Thanks again, bro! c:
------------------

So this is just me playing around, so you'll have to forgive a bit of wonkiness in the characters if they have some. :p

Anywho, all three of these characters are G1, and I mainly drew them because they are, in my headcanon, mothers of three of the FIM characters. c: Eh, regarding G1 MLP... I remember watching it as a child, but it's been YEARS since I've last seen it. So my knowledge of the original characters are very slim at best, but even then I remember them being quite... bland, in comparison to the characterization we have in FIM.

So! Their personalities and such may be a bit different from the original, but it's all headcanon so whatevah. B3

On that note, fire the headcanons! D:<

-Posey, a rather small earth pony mare and the mother of Fluttershy. If I remember correctly, she acted quite a bit like lil' ol' Flutters, in that she was pretty shy and sometimes meek. But, I think she wouldn't be nearly as shy as her daughter. She wouldn't have that much trouble speaking her mind, but she's more likely to simply let things unravel themselves than actually interfere unless she felt the need to. I've ultimately decided to have her mate be a pegasus stallion named Sunburst, a G4 canon very minor/background character I'll eventually draw myself. o3o If you wanna see him, here he is:

images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__c…

Posey would be where Fluttershy gets her stronger desire to be closer to the ground than up in the sky, although any and every pegasus still retains the need and desire to fly. Posey would also be a very accomplished healer/doctor and would have a rather impressive amount of magic within her legs and hooves, which would have others playfully calling her "The mare with the magic hooves".


-Firefly, A lean and rambunctious pegasus mare, and the mother of Rainbow Dash. Rainbow gets her very daredevil and brash attitude from her mother, especially the daredevil part. Unlike Rainbow though, I think Firefly might've been far more of a flirt, as well as being far more confident in her abilities than Rainbow is. She simply doesn't give two fucks about what anyone thinks of her and was a little absorbed in herself (or maybe she's just as dense as Rainbow. o.o), which in turn didn't allow her to catch onto the ridiculously huge crush her then childhood friend Rainbow Strike (Rainbow's father) had on her. She eventually caught on, though, since he's just that much of a quiet sweetheart. c:

Unlike Rainbow, I see her having a bit more of a styled mane instead of just letting it go however it goes. Her wings are also smaller than her daughter's, but that doesn't hinder her from being a great flier.


-Twilight, or Twilight Velvet as she's known in FIM, and the mother of Twilight Sparkle. Just like her daughter, Twilight Velvet is intelligent, punctual, and very organized, as well as friendly and helpful. She's also where Twi gained her love for books and reading; Twilight Velvet loves to write stories, and is an accomplished author of textbooks and adventurous fictions. Infact, I have the headcanon that she was once a teacher before turning to her passion for writing. I also think she would make up her own impromptu stories when Twi or Shiny asked for a bedtime story as foals. Her mate is obviously Twi's dad, who's canon name is Nightlight if I'm not mistaken.

Obviously, this is where Twilight Sparkle gets a great majority of her physical appearance, aside from a few things. Unlike Twi, though, I see Velvet as being far more... ah... "primp", unicorn classy/royal in comparison to her daughter's more casual outlook and demeanor. Her mane and tail isn't as wild as Twi's, nor does she have the "classical unicorn" look aside from cloven hooves. Twilight Velvet doesn't have unshorn fetlocks; they are very well trimmed at all times. The long fetlocks and lion-like tail her children have come from Nightlight. She's also pretty short. The main thing that separate Twilight Velvet from Twilight Sparkle is that the mother is slightly more angular than her daughter, especially in the eyes. I wanted her eyes to almost appear cold and intimidatingly sharp at first glance, but the longer you look at them the warmer they seem (specifically, when she's smiling), despite them being the iciest blue you'll ever see. o3o


So there ya go. This is only the first part so I'll end up drawing the last three mane 6's mothers, then I'll go on to draw the fathers. c:

But as always, if you have any questions feel free to ask me. Other than that, I appreciate you guys stopping by to look at my... eh... well, my messeh doodles. Thank jooooooos. c:

And then Hasbro put the kibosh on all fan theoy's regarding the Mane 6's parents. Rainbow's and AJ's are coming up this season.

Nah. Canon won't effect my headcanon unless I want it to. How much I like the canon version of their parents will determine whether or not I change it or ignore it.

how would fluttershys mom be an earth pony if Flutters had never been near the ground before?

Earthsong9405 Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2017  Student Traditional Artist
I'm pretty sure it was never said that Fluttershy has never been near the ground before as a foal, much less implied. Regardless of whether or not it did, this is still headcanon, and as such it never has to conform to what the canon says unless the creator of said headcanon wants it to.

okie dokie, sorry my eye sight is so bad right now so I didnt think to read through everything. (Though in Fluttershy's cutie mark flash back she had blatantly said she was never near the ground before, but her parents have also been confirmed so whatevs) It is kinda cute to think of these kinds of scenarios though.

Fluttershys parents and an apparent brother have been shown canon! Are you going to draw them?
Reply
:iconearthsong9405:
Earthsong9405 Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2016  Student Traditional Artist
Honestly? The brother perhaps, but I personally don't find Fluttershy's parents' designs all that appealing. I mean, they're really cute, but at the same time it doesn't really feel like they fit Fluttershy, strange as that sounds.... to the point that I might ignore them and keep my current headcanon on her parents. That said, I'ma actually watch the episode and get to know them a little better; maybe their design will grow on me. o3o

What about Sunburst (since he turned out to be a unicorn)? 
Reply
:iconearthsong9405:
Earthsong9405 Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2016  Student Traditional Artist
He didn't turn out to be a unicorn at all. Just because they share the same name doesn't mean the unicorn Sunburst and the pegasus Sunburst are one and the same. That just means two characters share the same name, which shouldn't be all that off-putting giving the fact that in the real world, it's very common for people to have the same name.

I don't think I fully understood what you were asking. Were you asking about the relation between the two Sunbursts or lack thereof, about unicorn Sunburst in general, or something entirely different?

:iconderpismylife45:

No, I was asking why that was your headcanon of Fluttershy's father because I thought you meant the unicorn one.

Good job, very good job. Though I think you could have made them a little bit thicker since they had gone through pregnancy with them. Just for realism :)

Not every woman (or in this case, mare) becomes thicker after pregnancy. Especially if the pregnancy was years ago.

True, I guess, but it's still a lot of change in chemistry and hormones, so they still wouldn't be looking that good without Hollywood supermodel-style extreme things. If anything, I would've just given them stretchmarks.
