“Dumb tree sap!”
Twilight is supposed to have a slightly sickly paleness to her because she often stays up (too) late, whereas Rarity carefully nurtures hers with sun-blocker ;)
Rainbow Dash and Applejack both have a tan because they’re often out in the field (either doing sports or tending to the farm).
Same for the CMC (save Sweetie Belle, who is a little bit more sheltered)
Spike has a slightly green-ish complexion because he’s a dragon :)
If anybody else wants to take a stab at colouring, they can download the lines here.
musings about adult anthro sweetie belle. i drew all the outfits on the same body base, but actually the first two would have to be from when she’s still a teenager and very much influenced (and protected) by rarity (who wants her to be a “proper lady”). then you’d have prom, college and international pop star.
rarity’s and sweetie’s mom seems pretty hip heavy (which is where rarity got her curves from), but i thought it’d be funny to have sweetie even more endowed in the upper area, but less so in the hips than her sister.
wanted to see if i could draw convincing child proportions for my anthros. i’m pretty happy. no. 3 is probably the most “her”. (though no. 2 the same only with a cardigan)
