Now that it's been announced, I can upload this!
I drew the header image for the Project: Thank You, Lauren Faust!
website. It's an awesome project designed to let Ms. Faust know just how much we love her little ponies, and I encourage everyone to submit something! (I might, if I can figure out what to say. I have waaay too many feelings about this show.)
Anyway, I enjoyed the excuse to draw Princess Lauren! Her pony is so pretty.
The other three ponies are completely random design-wise (any resemblance to canon or OC ponies is purely coincidental), although I did try to have them represent both the species in general -- earth, unicorn, and pegasus -- and the age and gender range through the fandom. Also, pony hugs! D'aww.
