Yup, I've also become addicted to the new My Little Pony. I've seen a lot of humanized ponies, but nothing done yet with Gargoyles. Since that simply will not do, I took it upon myself to do the FiM ponies in the style of Greg Weisman's Gargoyles. I think Applejack was the most fun to do.
I agree. All of the main 6 are the best at different things.rainbowdash,being 20% cooler, pinkie pie, being exciting and fun, twilight, being the smartest, rarity, being the most stylish, applejack, being the most hardworking,and Fluttershy, being the kindest to animals.
It was my choice to make them more humanoid. According to Weisman, anthropomorphic gargoyles only hail from London, and since none of the mane 6 are English I didn't want them to have those features. Not to mention there are already plenty of "furry" depictions of the ponies with human-like bodies and horse faces, which I'm personally not a fan of.
This looks absolutely amazing, and does an excellent job of combining two of my favorite things. They all turned out amazing, but I particularly like Rainbow Dash's redesign. I can see her tearing things up on the front line when the Ponyville Clan has a problem.
