I'll admit there's a few that dare paint one of them a slightly darker colour.
I'd like to emphasize the fact that not a third, possibly not even a fourth of the world population is white.
I think that if any of the main six were to be dark skinned, that would be Twilight
She wouldn't be slightly dark either. She'd be black. Asian black. Because black Africans are not the only blacks in the world.
I think she would be one of those very dark toned Indians.
Also, these are humanised ponies.
Therefore I'm keeping their hair and eye colour to a human consistence... I see no reason not to.
I'm also here featuring my new signature Love it
The rest of the cast so far:
the eyes so pretty <3
I love your designs of all the mane six
thank you <3
She was born and lived within castle walls, and spent most of her time indoors. Canterlot is based on Europe, with there already being a middle-east region equivalent introduced(and her not being from it), and neither she or her parents strike as immigrants(considering those live now in Ponyville).
B: Consider this: Shoehorning a token minority where it makes no sense, is even more racist than not including one at all.
I think the skin tone is wonderful. The expression is great. Love the dark eyes and she has such cute ears. You don't really show off hight in your pictures but I hope if you do a group shot later. That you make her shorter then the others. It has been mentioned she is a little pony as well as her char seems to press she is smaller then most.
Now the one thing I am not 100% with. Is her hair. I know, why? Actually dark hair is perfect for her. Raven or a very dark brown is great. The thing I don't like is the streak. I think it is to dark. It does not stand out enough. Also it looks like it does not line up front to back. Though I don't think she needs the streak to go from front to back. Front inthe bangs would be perfect. Still the steak is the only thing that does not work for her. Other then that, she is perfect.
Oh and long hair is nice, but a nice short style would work for her to.
I have nothing against other people drawing or thinking that any of the main six are racially/culturally diverse.
But there's definitely no shortage or racial diversity in Equestria in the first place.
Why make the ordinary ponies racially diverse too then?
Its just my opinion though.
I agree with your description
I aslo wish they did equestria girls in this style
I love your style ;v;
In all seriousness though, I really can't say what skin colour she would be.
I mean, does it really matter that much?
was the first thing that come to my mind
anyway good job
but the only ponies i can see being dark toned (of the mane 6) are twilight and rarity
applejack is a blond southern accent cow pony
pinkie is a sugar fueled frat girl
flutter shy is Spanish
and i can kind of see rainbow be dark toned at the same time no
