Very nice translation of poses and expressions to a set of characters with very different physical attributes, but there's a few detail...

MLP - Filigree and Magenta anthros by merrypaws
MLP - Filigree and Magenta anthros
I wanted to draw more anthro ponies in the same vein as my earlier picture, MLP - Hunter and Gatherer
The subjects of the makeover are Filigree, my Spike/Rarity fanbaby, and Magenta Dream, one of my first pony OCs.

That said, I'm not exactly sure what would be Magenta's role in a tribal society. Filigree was easy, since there would probably be a niche for a pony who finds gems and makes jewelry in a fantasy/barbarian setting, but Magenta's gimmick in the regular ponyverse is Astrozoology, i.e. studying various stellar creatures, like Ursa Majors and Minors etc. (Yes, I came up with that, it's not even nearly canon.) so I'm not sure what she should do in this AU. So... she's performing just some random magic here.

On a sidenote, I still have the file with the plain body lineart in a separate file, so would people be interested in anthro pony bases based on these two figures? (Minus the clothes, manes, horns and all such details, of course.)

MLP - Sage before and after by merrypaws
MLP - Sage before and after
I wanted to do a sort of comparison picture of my tri-head pony before and after he had his magical accident. While I was at it, I also though of his personality and backstory some, so here's a rough bio:

Name: Sagevalier "Sage" (He hated his name as a foal. He thought it sounded too foppish. After gaining his extra heads he split his name between the three of them, making the dragon head with red ears 'Val' and the blue one 'Lear'.)
Species: Unicorn (magically altered)
Special talent: Transformative magic
History: Sage was born to 'old money', the sole heir of an old and notable family, and was taught from early childhood that family reputation and appearances were everything. Then one day an experimental spell of his backfired spectacularly. The spell caused two aspects of his personality to manifest as separate heads. Val being the blunt, down to earth part that disliked all the high society prancing and posturing, while Lear represented the cultured and intellectual part.
As he tried to adjust his altered state, Sage, who had always held himself to high standards, experienced for the first time what it was like to have people accept him as is, even with such a notable 'flaw'. And as Val and Lear developed from aspects of himself into full personalities of their own, he for the first time got some insight into what it was like to have the kind of friends that might drive you crazy on occasion, but always had your back. With that new perspective, he was finally able to let go of his perfect image and just enjoy being himself.
Other info: Lear can do magic, though it's mostly limited to levitating objects and other such things all unicorns can do. Val on the other hand can breathe fire like dragons do.

The background is heavily edited from a vector Epic Wub Time BG #2 (Interview Room) by BlackGryph0n

I'm going back to school!

I've been accepted into Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki to study 3D Animation and Visualisation, starting this autumn.

I have to say I'm pretty excited. After two years of moping at home I'm back on the track towards an education and possibly even a job in a field I'm truly passionate about.

Cheerio!

Just had to make what may seem like an odd comment.

Maybe it's just me, but I feel like a version of your character Greg showed up in MLP FiM episode 100, least it made me think of when you first started posting pictures of Greg and Cotton Patch. I'll say no more for those who haven't seen the episode yet, other than it makes me wonder about its story too ;)

Hello!
I thought you'd like to know, I was able to draw an OC from one of your pose linearts. 
I tend to draw from linearts but I've never drawn my own character, so your pose was a big help! I redrew the baseline from yours by eye and adjusted it to accommodate clothing, hair and such. I gave you credit for the original pose in the description. I cannot thank you enough. ^.^
