Pony Noir by tygerbug Pony Noir by tygerbug
A film noir treatment of the My Little Pony characters.

Characters, shading and textures drawn on 8.5 x 11 paper with pigment pen. Colored and assembled in Photoshop.

Twilight Sparkle is Joan Crawford. Rarity is Rita Hayworth. Fluttershy and Angel Bunny are Bonnie and Clyde from the Warren Beatty/Faye Dunaway film. Pinkie Pie is a World War II WAC. Philomena is the Maltese Phoenix. Rainbow Dash, Spike and Applejack always dress in style. Compensation, adequate.

Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Angel Bunny, Spike and Philomena are characters from the television series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, copyright Hasbro and created by Lauren Faust.

Rarity is such a natural fit for Noir.  She'd be perfect as the title character in a pony version of the classic noir mystery Laura, which I just watched last night.  I could see Rainbow Dash as a tough-talking private eye in any number of noir plots.

Very nice piece of highly imaginative art!  Big brohoof!

AJ's look needs a little fix-up. It looks like her pants are stitched to her shirt rather than being held in place by pants.

Noir and ponies. They go together like uhm....Jalapenos and chocolate. Two things you wouldn't believe go together, but hey it works.

Fluttershy with a Thompson? This would make a very good fan fiction. Wouldn't any of you guys agree?

Mixing two of my favorite things; Ponies and Noir? You sir have just gotten yourself a watcher. I'm actually listening to Frank Sinatra's rendition of "As Time Goes By" as I type this.
