Background Ponies Appreciation Club

82 posts in this topic

We have so many great background ponies, especially in the recent seasons. Many of them are still unnamed. And they all deserve more love.

 

We need a place where we can post our favorite bg ponies and suggest names for the unnamed ones. Why don’t we start a fan club?Ponies_and_Aura_playing_with_flowers_S6E

I often make vectors of BG-Ponies. You can see them on DeviantArt.

 

From the old BG-Ponies, my both favorites are Minuette and Amethyst Star.

Here a few selfmade vectors of BG-Ponies which I made in the last year and don't have posted in other fanclubs (because the characters don't have one).

Background ponies are probably the coolest looking ponies in the show. Just cause their different designs.

Yeah, right. It's just that the background horse hype died since last year and she wasn't taken into notice in Slice of Life

They only showed the most popular ones and Octavia and Vinyl aren't even background ponies, they were one shot ponies for the first 4 seasons.

Here a selfmade vector of my three favorite Canterlot Unicorns (besides Moonlight Raven and Sunshine Smiles) Sweet Biscuit, Citrus Blush and Cayenne while they are dancing. The base was a screenshot from the three manehattan dancers in Saddle Row Review.

Here the first vector of my small advent special. I want to make a few vectors of Backgroundponies in the dresses which the Mane 6 donned in "A Hearths Warming Eve".  In this vector, we have Frying Pan (a Pony from Las Pegasus) as Cancellor Puddinghead and Winter Lotus (A Pony from Ponyville) as Smart Cookie. Unicorns and Pegasi follow.

I am not really sure if they count as Background ponies, anyway, I uploaded all my other Advent specials here, so why not them.  Here the third vector of my small advent special. In this vector, we have Sunshower as Private Pansy and Clear Skies as Commander Hurricane.

I am finally done. I planned to release it last sunday (4th Advent), but I had not the time for it because of my studies. So, here is the last vector of my advent special. And yeah, I wish you all a wonderful christmas Time and a great start into the new year. ^^

The base was a screencap from the episode "Hearth's warming eve".

It was a great idea to start this Fan Club for backround ponies.

Good job!

Thanks. Sadly, it doesn't seem to be particularly popular. Bronies don't care about BG ponies as much as they used to a few years ago.

 

Do you have a favorite background pony?

I have the feeling that it is more that a lot of bronies don't care about new backgroundponies. The old one, especially fan favorites like Lyra, Bon Bon, Derpy, etc., on the other side have also nowadays a lot of fans and fanart. I find it sad that the new BG ponies don't have such a fame like the old one because in my opinion, the new one (since S4) have a very unique and amazing design. It makes really fun to make vectors of them. But I see on DeviantArt or Derpibooru that pictures with old BG-Ponies have more likes than pictures with new one. I love both, the old one and the new one. But it makes more fun to make vectors of the new one.

You know, sometimes I think that good designs of the new BG ponies is actually what makes bronies care less about them. With the old ones you had to nitpick some interesting details searching in the piles of dozens of recolors and identical bystanders. The old fan favorites you mentioned, which in my opinion have already become secondary characters rather than BG ponies, had something unusual in them (Lyra's sitting pose, Bon Bon's voices, Derpy's eyes, Dr. Whooves's similarity to the Doctor, etc.) that differentiated them from the other BG "pieces of scenery". Now almost every new BG pony is unique, and that is what makes them less interesting for the wide audience.
