Yeah, I never draw Rarity.


You'll never guess what I spent the last hour and a half of my life doing, though.

Do you have a page summing up ponified people (Tara Strong and Lauren Faust and any others) ?

HOW TO DRAW A PONY
a step-by-step tutorial of my flawless technique:

-1) buy a book of the occult
0) draw a circle
1) scribble something vaguely resembling a pony
2) scribble something on top of the scribbles
3) start making an actual effort at turning the scribbles into a well defined member of the pony ilk
4) erase and start over again
5) make the actual sketch
6) worship the warmth gods with your butt
7) redraw the sketch
8) draw the actual lines
9) paint over the whole thing, thus rendering step 8 pointless
10) make some tortilla soup

On the one I just posted I only did steps 5 and 8 though. Would have been better if I'd taken maybe 5 minutes to redraw it instead of spending a ridiculous amount of time coloring a one minute doodle. Biggest problem is the series of small sequential edits I did with it in .jpg format though. JPEG RE-RE-RECOMPRESSION GAH.

I'm not sure what you're asking. Wikipedia, maybe? Sum up? Like a list of them? Biographies? Their work, OCs, deviantArt accounts, and Twitter handles? I'm also not sure what you mean by 'ponified' people. The people who work for Hasbro doing pony-related things? Personalities relevant to the fandom?

*giggles like mad*

This is the actual artistic process, people.

Those youtube videos were you see some one drawing an amazing picture in 3-5 minutes? Heavily edited.

I wasn't specific enough, I know. I could as well have just asked for "quality ponies".
How to start with... OK, I was looking over the web for stuff, and I figure that the two persons I mentioned have their own pony figure, sufficiently defined (colo(u)r, hair, cutie mark) for fans to agree with this unique model, so every fan draws a pony Faust that's recognized as "the" pony Faust "as if" somebody had invented it for everybody else.
I want this kind of "invention", I want to say myself "haha, good one, well thought". I think I want to see real people and not fiction characters.

Lauren Faust created her own pony-sona, as did Sibsy and Mutating Raven who work on the show. William Anderson got one without asking for it. Tara Strong got one by asking for it.
I don't think anybody else really has one that's widely recognized.

Haha thanks for the tips HR Laughing

My problem lies in anatomy though. I just have no sense of proportions. And my ponies always end up too fat like G1 ponies or too skinny so they don't look like they could stand under their own weight. Or they have massive heads and tiny bodies. In short my sense of proportion is non existant >_>

Maybe Wooden Toaster, Jackle App, et al? I wouldn't necessarily say they're that well-known, but everyone recognises them by their OCs.

Thanks. I forgot to specify that it could be any known person, regarding MLP or not.

Pretty much everything in fiction has been ponified by fans at this point.
Real people of actual notoriety are usually ponified as a joke. The Great and Powerful Kanye West probably isn't what you're looking for, though.

There's dull, boring pony art of things like Abraham Lincoln, sure, but...

If you can't find a pony of it, it's because you haven't looked.

Just an observation.

Nightmare Moon = Alicorn; wings and horn and magic

Discord = Chimera; wings and horns and magic

Queen Chyrsilis = Changling; wings and horn and magic

King Sombra = Unicorn; horns and magic (evil through wing envy?)
