Okay so back in season 1 (so what 2010?) I was already bitching about lore expansions the show was doing that I didn’t find a good use of potential, and planning out an alternate history that addressed it by… uh, kind of going way way too far past “potential” and into “wild transformation”. I had so much ridiculously needless depth added to the characters before season 2 even aired
and now that we’re at 6 seasons I could probably write a twelve-part epic.
Not that I should, because this project was already far too much investment and ambition for what it was, hence why I dropped it. Well that and I got baby mad at a cartoon show for little girls.
Anyway. Since it had combat / was an action RPG, I needed the characters to use weapons, wear cool outfits, and be cute/hot waifus – so they pretty much had to be anthropomorphic. Ah well.
Also my hard drive corrupted and I wasn’t able to finish some of these images.
(This isn’t the entire set, since most of them are scraps. The scraps are available on Inkbunny
and should be Guest-visible if you turn Mature content on.)
This Pinkie one was done way
later (the original 2010-ish one suxx’d) and not really for this project specifically, and none of them seem to have hooves because I apparently still hated those in ~2010.
I’ve been thinking maybe after I clear off my art plate a bit more I might want to go back and redo these designs – and uh reduce the bust sizes – regardless of whether or not I actually return to this project. It quickly became too much investment for a fan work and I highly doubt I could convince Hasbro to license what I have in mind (please note Hasbro’s official web site lets pretty much anyone submit a license application.)
I won’t mention this project’s name on the very remote chance I pick it back up, because if enough people call it by name, Hasbro would be forced to shut it down. But the name is mega metal so there. Also I probably already mentioned it on Inkbunny and/or Tumblr so neglecting to do so here is completely pointless.
