MLPFiM - Rainy Days by DDhew MLPFiM - Rainy Days by DDhew

Lol idk this is kinda random, just an idea i had while walking home and... lol it just had to be done. I've grown to like these human-form ponies... they're artistically more challenging to draw and somehow more expressive, at least to me. And it's nice to try to capture the feel of the original characters to my human versions.

Lol i needed an excuse for RD to be _READING_ with Twilight so i put that window there (too low I KNOW) indicating it's raining. (also RD shouldn't you be DOING something to the clouds? just noticed this after i finished with the lineart *facepalm* but maybe human Dash can't be a weatherlord lol)
I guess RD was a bit bored when it was such a lousy weather and then she went to Twilight's like "I'M SO BORED PLAY WITH ME" and Twilight was like "OK don't worry, i know just the thing to do on a rainy day *trollface*" and yeah, this scene occured. You can freely imagine what the conversation is about though xD ( i guess Twilight is just making fun of RD just reading comics... like IRON PONY lmao heh... heh. funny, right...) Oh how i love sarcastic Twilight xD

I imagine in a humanified high school-set FiM, Rainbow is the crazy athletic one (maybe a free-runner?) who dreams of being on the school co-ed soccer team, the Wonderbolts and eventually playing pro. Twilight was transferred in from a private school for the gifted because her tutor, Professor Celestia, was worried that she was developing too much of an insular personality and needed to learn to socialise.

Twilight is always after Rainbow to try to keep up her grades, never tiring of reminding her that if her average is too low, the Wonderbolts won't even let her try out.

Hmm... What about the others? Rarity is the head cheerleader and is always trying to convince Twilight, Fluttershy and Applejack to join the squad. Fluttershy is the quiet one who all the boys moon over because she is so pretty and nearly made the jump to stardom after she was the model for Rarity's end-of-semester fashion show. Pinkie Pie meanwhile is still the high-metabolism crazy party-lover who is always trying to make friends with everyone. Applejack is an orphan and is permanently on the verge of having to drop out to help her big brother with the family farm and looking after her kid sister. The others help out whenever they can because... hey! What are friends for? Spike is Twilight's adoptive younger brother and hangs out with the Crusaders (all just-joined Middle School) in this universe. He still has a crush on Rarity and helps out Twilight as her invaluable sanity checker.

Overall, they are a weird group but they seem to mesh together well. The other kids of Ponyville High, noting that they are the tightest of friends and stronger together than apart call them The Elements of Harmony. Rarity, in a moment of madness, even created 'uniform' hoodies for them with the 'Elements of Harmony' name on the back.

They became famous in the town after staging an intervention that persuaded Professor Celestia's younger sister, Luna, to give up her biker life and return home; it's something that the gang's co-leaders, two ne'er-do-wells called Discord and Chrysalis, have neither forgiven nor forgotten.

In terms of the secondary characters? Ditzy is an older girl who had to drop out after she got pregnant and now works as a bicycle courier to support her little girl. Lyra and Bonbon are the "out and proud" couple of the county - Lyra is a violinist in a classical band led by Pinkie's cousin, Octavia, while Bonbon works in a sweet shop that's the cheerful rival of the malt shop where Pinkie works on weekends.

The Crusaders are four middle-school kids: Rarity's kid sister Sweetie, Applejack's younger sister Applebloom and Fluttershy's cousin Scootaloo, who are all determined to get to match their older kin's fame. Spike has started hanging out with them lately, mostly because he knows them best thanks to Twilight's friendship with said older kin.

Yeah, they're really just ordinary kids...

Until the powers started to manifest in them.

The funniest thing about this? Apparently in an upcoming episode, Rainbow will develop a love of reading. SO THIS IS PRACTICALLY CANON!
bubblykayz Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

ZeroGZ Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2011

*snort* i love what rainbow dash is reading.
Fransinn Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2011
Iron Pony?
Kippyan Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2011
I like this. It's different from what I usually see in the fanart section of MLP:FiM, but with the way you do it, it's pretty good. You should do more of this kind of thing, with various characters from the show. You do agree with me, though, that human FiM characters could be horribly butchered in the hands of a mediocre artist, right?
Kishori-kun Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2011
Ah, Twilight. She is such a nerd, a cute nerd, but a nerd nonetheless.
Imperator-Zor Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2011
Twi, don't you go disrespecting comics.
friendofpie Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2011
hey Comic Books are great and are totally capable of telling deep stories with rich characters if the writers and artist so chose.

and Superheros are awesome.
DDhew Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yep, i know : D i love comics too, sometimes even more than books, for that particular reason. Comicbooks can have an additional element that the books lack (especially really badly written when you can't even properly use your imagination): visuality. well done and written comicbooks combine great characters, amazing plotline and a good message and yet breath-taking illustration so i'm completely on RD's side on this one xDD! (too bad that most of the comics are kinda crappy though, and even done by pros the plotline is bullshit and the message just isn't there)

dancinninjac Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2011
I can totally picture Rainbow Dash only reading comic books. This is awesome.
Pimpslap-MeGee Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2011
You have to give her credit, though; Pony Starks is one hell of a hunk.

God, Twilight is SUCH a nerd...Bet she doesn't even know half of the athletic things out there without reading about them...Actually wait, there was that one episode with the autumn race and...Dammit. Still, great work here, especially those expressions. Lip-biting and all. :nod:
DDhew Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
LMAO I KNOW RITE, she trolls everyone with her epic reading. GEEKS WILL RULE THE WORLD MARK MY WORDS.

PrismQuartz Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2011
RD: All these other books are so lame-o for not having any cool pictures in them.
Twilight: *troll face*Well I do have these reference guides on fl-
RD: I said COOL pictures! >:E


But actually in the AJ&Rarity episode they said that they had to schedule a down pour so maybe that's what happened :3
Rumiel Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2011

DDhew Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
