Woah bro! A knuckle sandwich. does not friendship make! Speak like Yoda, I do. Love this drawing also, I do. I also, can't help but notice the 'Rarity dragged me here and I don't actually know what to think' expression on Twilight's face. And the sandals on Fluttershy! That's awesome, it really captured the feel of how she is all nature-ish. S'all good. Fabulous.
I'm not really comfortable with admitting this yet, but these girls are growing on me. I'm not quite ready to say I'm a brony just yet, but I'm on the way. I just wanna say thanks to you for being my first encounter with this series. When I write about this (And trust me I will) I'll probably do it as a crossover or human!pony fic. Would it be alright if I used these designs for said human!fic?
There's nothing to be ashamed of in liking My Little Pony, I actually think everyone should watch it, it has good moral lessons and it's so positive. And I feel honored to be your first encounter with the series. Now regarding the designs. I think it would be much better if you write about how you envision the characters instead of basing in someone else's designs, because by using others' designs they won't be considered your own.
