Cutie Mark Crusader

So here’s a quick character sheet for Apple Bloom in my style. For the longest time I’ve wanted to draw her with the gaptooth, and if you look back over my work you’ll see it’s there some times, and absent in others, but from this point onwards it’s there to stay!

She also has the Apple Family’s freckles since they’re too cute to leave out!

I have fewer ideas about Sweetie and Scootaloo beyond them having their races’ upturned and flat muzzles, perhaps I’ll play around with them in future, too.

I typically don’t upload two images in one day but I’ll make an exception this time ‘cause I really like how this one came out. Finally a look of all of the youngsters that’s on the road trip with the Mane 6. This one is a direct follow-up to the previous one:

After lunch the gang decides to do a bit of shopping around before hitting the road again. But before they fully leave the diner, the CMC and Spike ask Pinkie Pie to take a picture of them with the caricatured statue of the legendary Hollywood actress, Marealyn Monroan. Instead of the usual photo though, the kids decide to get… creative. They’re superstars! Definitely a keeper. c:

Got a short written snippet for the image? Just let me know! C:

Other than that, I hope you guys enjoy the image! ^.^

sidotsy  asked:

Hey Apri, have you drawn the CMC yet? If not I'd love to see them with their sisters (adopted or not!)

Yes I have drawn them once for this blog, or at least two of them! Here, in this post

However, I made more pictures. They’re are pretty sketchy tho, today has been a bad drawing day 😅


The Difference Between Us is an upcoming My Little Pony fan game about Fluttershy on her first date with Pinkie Pie. Fluttershy never knew that Pinkie felt that way about her, and she struggles to figure out what she wants and how she feels about Pinkie as she finds her way through the date.

There are three main routes through the date, and each route has three endings, all with several different variations depending on your prior choices. There are no bad endings, just different ways of exploring a new relationship and the new feelings that come with it. All of the mane six as well as the cutie mark crusaders make appearances to offer advice, hang out, or even put on a show. And all along the way, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie will be telling stories, sharing secrets, healing old wounds, and, hopefully, growing closer.

Coming soon!

Cutie Mark Crusaders body types/heights concepts.

Here’s how I picture the CMC in my style, they have a bit of variety in their heights since not every child is gonna be the same, and their bodies have stories to tell.

Firstly, Sweetie has a slight build, upturned muzzle and pointed earls just like her sister. She’s going to grow up to be around Rarity’s height and will stand a little below average for a pony.

Apple Bloom has the sturdy frame and freckles you’d expect from an Apple, and her gaptooth of course, but that’s not shown here. When she reaches Applejack’s age she’ll be a solid and reliable Earth pony, too.

Finally, we have the tall and thin Scootaloo. Now, I’ve gone from design to design for her recently, but I’d like to think her above average size explains her inability to fly. Whether they’re just small, or won’t ever develop, Scootaloo’s wings just can’t carry her. Her angular body is reminiscent of Fluttershy’s as a filly, hinting at the fact she’ll grow up slim and beautiful too.

These are still a work in progress, Scootaloo and Sweetie are probably prone to further designs in future, but it’s a good place to start.
