To The Gala by Ruffu To The Gala by Ruffu
A little something that I wanted to do that I put off for a while. Now, I finally finished it ^_^ It was supposed to be a looping animation of the mane 6 riding a bus to who-knows-where. Probably an alternate dimension where everything is like the 1930s.

Rainbow Dash couldn't run around in the dress Rarity forced her into, so she decided to annoy Spike by sleeping on him instead! XD

I like the idea you got. They look adorable with those clothes anf they seem to suit them pretty well. *chuckle* That Pinkie... and Twilight still lost in her book.

Awesome work

The reflections are wonderful, love the range of expressions, and the clothing--for lack of a better word--suits them perfectly, I feel.
Basically, this is a quintessential representation of each of their personalities, and it is a joy to just sit back and soak in every detail of this piece. :D
I was a bit confused for a bit and the ensemble Rainbow has, but since you mentioned the 30s, that decision makes much more sense. I mean Flappers were a thing in the 30s right? I believe that was relevant in the 20s, but I am not so certain how long that fad lasted. XD

Thanks ^_^ Yeah, it's somewhere within that time era. I wanted to paint something a little bit old. It's kinda like MLP's timeline which is kind of mixed. They have some wooden structures and houses but then you have Manehattan with tall concrete buildings but in Ponyville, it's definitely a medieval theme.

It's amazing how in-character you have made them while giving every one a little something more... like Fluttershy, in this dapper outfit of hers, playing chess with Spike. For some reason, I am very fond of that.

They wouldn't be the main 6 we know if they weren't in character ^_^ I try not to deviate too much from that.

Indeed, but still, sometimes, you see MLP illustrations that are very remote from the original show, sometimes to such an extent that it would have made more sense to draw entirely new characters instead of MLP ones.

Anyway, great stuff mate, keep it up!

Ruffu Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2013  Student General Artist
Yeah, I see some of those and I hate it when they go off model. It's really irritating. At least with new characters they have the creative freedom to do whatever they wanted instead of breaking the already existing characters.

Anyway, will do, thanks :D

Pinkie realizes that Rainbow is outclassing her in the comic relief department, and is thus overcompensating.

I wonder why all the girls are wearing clothes, but Spike is dressed in nothing. Does he have a public humiliation fetish or something?
