Founders of Equestria by Sakuyamon Founders of Equestria by Sakuyamon
Decided I wanted real faces on the founders of Equestria instead of just the mane six playing them.

Clover the clever was inspired by MLP Tales Clover and G1 Sweet Clover.

Smart Cookie was based on norse fjord horses... I wanted her to be a bit realistic and grounded.

For Private Pansy I wanted to use some of the colors used for Pegasus in the Disney Hercules movie.

For some reason I feel like the commander and the chancellor should be male...

Pudding head well he was based a bit on Don Quixote.

Do you mind if use Clover's design for a character?
I'm only asking you this because mistakenly taken your Clover, drawn it out and made it my own, familyof6.deviantart.com/art/C… but as I have stated in the description, I have credited you so I hope you don't mind. But if you do, then I'll take it down and re-draw her as a human or something. I'm so sorry for taking your design completely.

I always envisioned Clover the Clever with the same colors as Clover from the G2 ponies.
But damn, your design looks awesome!

Thats odd when I had Don Quixote in mind when I designed him... but sure go ahead and do a human version. just remember to give proper credit.

Do you know how incredibly rude it is of you to use my design without even getting my approval?
Not only that but you copy pasted Clovers symbol directly on your pic! I'm quite insulted!

I'm...
I didn't mean to.
I did credit you, and took no credit for the design, and usually people are ok with it because they were given credit, and I read the description and didn't see something saying to ask, and now if I look, Im probably going to see something saying that and I'm going to feel like a fucking illiterate moron with no respect for you.. and I meant no disrespect,and Im sorry... I gave credit, and I just wanted to use a very good design.

Giving credit is usually enough for fanart, but here you took my design bent it to your own desire and used a piece of my work without asking. Even with credit, that's theft.
I dont write that one have to ask for permission because I assume people have the decency to ask and the pride to not steal others work. Besides, writing a note on each of my art pieces would take hours of extra work, time which I dont have.
I do question how you can assume its ok to take someone elses art without asking just because you dont see a note about it!
You dont take another persons car just because you like it so why take someone elses art?

Look, I can't explain why I did it, but the piece is gone, and I'm sorry I messed with your design. I just wanted to make a picture using that design.

If you want to make such a picture, ask.
and if you do make a picture in the future, make it all with your own hands, thats when you learn to become better and you dont hurt anybody.

Smart Coockie and Private Pansy are so cute!
Clover the Clever and Princess Platinum are beautiful!
Commander Hurricane is so cool (I want him as my guard) and Chancellor Pudding Head looks so funny!

Just one thing: Shouldn't Commander Hurricane's left wing be layered above his body?
Reply
:iconsakuyamon:
Sakuyamon Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
that would depend on how the wings are attached. when I made this, that way felt correct...its not always easy to know how to draw and we learn along the way.
