The G1 Filly Club: Version 2 by Opallene

Afak;ljda;fjj%(&!! My Little Pony Micro Series #8 (Celestia) contains a flashback to...early G1 times! Here's my illustration of this lil' group of filly friends, using the designs from the comic. (Are these comics canon? I sure hope so!! ^_^)

Left to right: Firefly, Glory, Surprise, Bowtie, Sky Dancer. Yes, I proudly own a G1 toy of each one of these ponies.

Sky Dancer's cutie mark would be a flock of birds in outline. But, maybe he doesn't have his yet anyway! Yes, I say "he" because he is drawn to look like a boy in the comic. And, oddly enough, this accords with an existing fanon of sorts. I recall a G1 fansite that was influential on me as a kid. The site owner characterized in great detail the personalities she'd ascribed to three particular ponies that she'd played with the most as a child. Sky Dancer, in spite of the female toy mold, was always male in her adventures with the ponies, and I became of the same opinion.

Wow. What a trip! (I wonder why Gusty is an adult (seen earlier in the same flashback) while the others are fillies.)

Oh man.  I was the one running that fansite--Moondancer's Dream, right?  NOSTALGIA FLASHBACK!

I love your picture.  <3

No freakin' way!  That's amazing. XD  It's funny, I felt so alone as a kid in the 90s, when MLP was past its prime and the only way to get the toys was to go to thrift shops and antique malls.  For whatever reason, I was super drawn to MLP (as well as the Care Bears) and lamented that I wasn't born a few years earlier.  But today!!  I never would have expected the bizarre explosion wrought by FIM.

It's an honor, ma'am -- you helped inspire me to keep on living in that fun little rainbow world, and I'm a fan for life! I'm so happy you like my picture.  SKY DANCER hoof bump! ^_^

They're all very adorable (Firefly somehow manages to look cool and cute at the same time). :aww:

Thanks!  (That's what Firefly aims for!  I can picture her slicking her hair back while blinking cutely...haha.)

firefly looks like flitterheart with the colors.
is star shine the rainbow-haired pony? it's the only pony of these and the only name I don't know

Or you could say that Flitterheart looks like Firefly. ;)  Which is why I customized my Flitterheart into Firefly, because let's face it, she came first, actually has a personality, and is just awesome. :D

No, that's Sky Dancer.  (See comments.)  I can't confirm 100% that the pony seen in the comic IS Sky Dancer, but it's a pegasus with exactly the same colors (down to the order of the rainbow colors in the mane) so I have to conclude that's who it is. ^_^

no no. firefly is originally pink while flitterherat is more purple. your firefly goes more to purple than pink so your firefly looks like flitterheart.
also firefly has only one blue color in her heair. your's has two. flitterheart has 2 colors in hair. it's blue and purple, but still.

ah sorry my mistake. I meant to write sky danzer, but for some reason I wrote the wrong name >.>

comic? which comic?

Oh, that must be a result of the palette.  I used a blue-ish base underneath to unify the picture.  I made Firefly's hair multi-tonal for more life and texture, and because I like multi-tonal pony hair.  It's still all blue. :)  I also used two pink colors on Bowtie, but the difference is more subtle.  I can see what you mean I guess, how it turned out somewhat like Flitterheart.  Your second link redirects to some kind of One Tree Hill pic, though. o_O

I'm talking about the official MLP comic being released by IDW.  The Celestia issue just came out last week in North America.

I never heard about a comic. the FIM comics don't count because its only the animated series in pictures
