MLP art for Japan **UPDATE**

Mon Mar 21, 2011, 8:54 AM
**UPDATE 4/8**

Meracritter has posted a bit more information about the upcoming auction of these pieces on his journal along with some instructions on how to help ensure it will happen sooner rather than later.  He explains that the Q Pop folks are still very busy following up with their original auction for Japan and facilitating the additional MLP art auction is taking longer than expected.  But don't worry--- it will happen eventually, so thank you for your patience.

****



ANOTHER CHANCE TO OWN SOME ORIGINAL MLP DEVELOPMENT ART!!!!!

So, the Q Pop fundraiser for Japan was a few days ago, and from what I hear, it was quite a success!  The 2 MLP pieces sold quite speedily, and many people suggested that an auction would have brought in more money for Japan.  The winner of the 2 original MLP development sketches, Metacritter, has generously offered to put one of his winnings, the Applejack sketch (see below) to do just that.  He and Q Pop are arranging to have the auction in the next few days.

I'm offering 2 more drawings from the same batch of development sketches---- plus a brand new sketch.  The first time I've ever drawn this character.

Each piece is an original sketch, not a print.  Applejack, Twilight and Pinkie Pie are from 2008 and were drawn for the original MLP pitch bible.   

THE AUCTION HAS NOT BEGUN, but I will announce when it does.  Please check back for updates.  


Thanks a ton to Metacritter for arranging just about ALL of this.

**And in case you're wondering, Pinkie was temporarily a pegasus.  I originally pitched her that way, but it was agreed that she should stay in her established, earth pony form, so Fluttershy inherited her wings.  I think it all worked out in the end.  :) **

Not fanart, actually. This is from the original Pitch Bible by Lauren Faust, the creator of MLP:FIM

You probably don't check all of these messages, but...

Aw man, Derpy is my favorite! Fantastic! =D

I hope more information about Derpy is released, such as a name. (Last time I checked, they actually let out a name for Lyra which was Heartstrings even though she's a background pony?) I hope they do the same for Derpy. I'd love to see what name they throw in, I doubt they'd use such huge internet slang like "Derp" in a children's show. XD But it'd be interesting to see.

A voice for Derpy would be awesome too. I was excited with her halloween scene in episode 4 of season 2. I hope she can be seen like that more often! =D

I must be honest. Derpy's eyelashes must be at the corner oh her eyes, am I right? I know it's just a doodle to show but, isn't her eye (right part of the doodle) has the eyelashes INSIDE the eye??? :S

Just wondering :P

I think those aren't eyelashes but just differently colored parts, where one piece would be yellow and the others more brown-like. It's confusing cos the other pics don't have those.

That's correct. If you look at a colored Derpy image you can actually see those minimal color variations.

Lauren, you are seriously the best for helping out like this. It must be so moving to see so many of the fans get behind a noble cause and saving people in the most drastic of situations. I wish the best to you and your crew, and to everyone that's been giving their all to help out Japan.

I'm usually quite the cheapskate, but I've never seen a better reason to indulge my selfish side! I'll be aiming to win one of these drawings of yours!

Hiya... I was just wondering if you were ever going to put in twinkle eye ponies, or flutter ponies in Friendship is Magic...
I'm eagerly waiting your response, thank you so very much, your ponies got me back into the MLP circle.

If she ever gets named on air, it will have to pass legal. If any of these names carry risk, it will be changed to something safe before the episode airs. So I guess I can't say she has an "official" name until it's said out loud in an episode.

As far as I'm concerned, she is your (the fanbase's) character, and you guys named her.

Thanks for responding, I saw you named her derpy in your pic, and I understand if rules wont let her name fly, But is that a slight hint that she might make a bigger appearance in an episode? ;D

ps Loved the cutie mark chronicles ep.

I love your updated - and vastly improved - version of My Little Pony. Didn't care for the original show myself, and as a kid, plastic ponies weren't my thing - but your show has great visual beauty, appealing and artful character design, clever writing and, well...basically, your show has everything I like in a cartoon, and so I'm a faithful watcher. Congrats on its success!

Nice to meet you, by the way, I'm Toonicorn. Here's my site: [link]

I also like your original concept of Milky Way and the Galaxy Girls. Have you gotten any nibbles from the networks yet? Hope so - I'd love to see your characters in action. I'll keep watching this site for updates!

Hey, Lauren (if I can call you that).
I know a while ago you read a post on Ponychan.net, and there's another one I think you should read.
www.ponychan.net/chan/pony/res/201729.html
It's a really inspirational story, and I think you'd respect it.
(I apologize if it isn't up when you see this. If it gets moved, I will post you another link.)

It's probably for the best that Pinkie wasn't a pegasus. She causes enough comotion on the ground as it is, who knows what she'd do if she took to the skies? (I mean, just look what it did to Rarity!)

Also, I see a certain cross-eyed pegasus. Faust, you are made of awesome, and don't let anyone tell you differently!
