i really wanted to make some alternate rainbow power designs!!!
i guess something that really bothers me about the canon designs (among other things) is that they dont really seem to cohesively represent friendship, or teamwork, or rainbows even? it’s like they just slapped random coloured stripes on each one and overloaded them with
hair their cutie marks/symbols. i don’t really understand what happened there. why did they make the design choices that they did?
i wanted to make designs that would bind them together more? SO, they all have a shiny magical rainbow stripe in their hair, and each pony’s cutie mark gains five sparkles around it (echoing twilight’s cutie mark in representing the five other friends/elements). their manes and tails would still do the whole magical flowing spiel and get a little larger, but they wouldn’t be…completely out of control…glances back at the season finale… that extra hair magic results in fetlocks instead.
everypony is accented with the colour of the element of harmony she represents! and their fetlocks are individualized to match their personal style. but i wanted them to gain more similarities than individualities, since they are joining forces to use the super powerful magic of friendship.
