Recommended Posts

I hope this isn’t the official style. It’s too cutesy.

we see three ponies in a completely art style in a soon to come licensed merchandise by a fabric company. It seems to be releasing in September, same month of G5 releasing as far as it was officially

Oof, I knew I've seen those smiles somewhere before.

I disagree. FiM looked more cutesy. But THIS looks more lifeless. I’m hoping it’s just because it’s the merch that they look so dead-eyed. Old FiM merch looked really blank-faced too. B

But these girls’ faces are REALLY giving me this sort of vibe:

As long as they don’t go back to that style, things should be okay :ButtercupLaugh:

I think it’s the small eyes in relation to the face that’s getting me...

Granted, FiM eyes were freaking HUGE, but this seems a bit like a step too far in the other direction.

Generation 4 is cute but this is a little too cute for me.

You have a point:

I like it. It's different, but not significantly different. THat's the point of having a different art styling, to make the generations of MLP distinct from each other.

The cutesyness of it is totally fine with me. Even so, am I the only feeling they are trying to double down on the whole "it's for girls" thing with this look? It's sorta screaming that according to my vision balls.

IMPORTANT!!!

The merch has now been removed from the MLP search on the website. :ooh: Either it wasn’t meant to be seen yet or it could be confirmation that it is definitely not going to be the design. :huh:

I kind of have a mixed opinion on this. These designs are cute, but they also are a bit strange. It's hard to pinpoint the exact reason they do feel strange, but I think that overall the designs seem a bit lifeless. Plus, the faces just look a bit off too me (specifically the eyes and the nose). I would say this definitely isn't g4 quality.

That being said, I do still find the designs decently cute. I like the color scheme of the unicorn, and the pegasus has a pretty neat design overall. But again, I have to nitpick the art style a bit here. Both the horn and the wings are different from the ponies' coat color, and they look rather odd. So my overall thoughts stand are that the style isn't the worst out there by any means, but it isn't my favorite. But, who knows, maybe as more images come out, my thoughts on this somewhat wacky style will change.

I do agree they have minor uncanny valley elements there. But I think because they all have the same expressions. Understandable, other than this (and assuming they are indeed the main characters), there’s no other officially shown image of any of them so far.

 

bu the way, the middle pony seems to be the same one from the recently seen animatic

If you don't mind me asking, where is this animatic? I've been hearing about it but can't find it anywhere. The animatic style looks super cute too!

The faces...look too much like not horses, too human head like to me?

Also why all dead ahead views, no side views?

G4 horses looked closer to humans than these horses tho :mlp_icwudt:

Kinda cute I guess but the expressions r too samey kinda wonky and it all feels a lil too pink. Plus the eyes r like idk every girls doll toy look. They coulda varied the eyes and that a bit more. Still looks interesting I suppose.

They're giving me "Thomas the Tank Engine" feelings for some reason. :wau:

Speaking of, did you know about the new reboot?

I'd argue that point if you wish...to me the cheeks are too fat and round to be "horse like" where as G4 they were kinda "streamlined" into the nose, like a snout.

If it is the new design, than it definitely has potential, I personally find it pretty good. As was already pointed out some aspects could use an improvement, but it might look better in the movie\series than on merch.

G4 ponies looked weird from the front (pony looking directly at "camera"), this does not look as weird. I wonder how they look from the side.

The drawings just under the pillow are from the side, and overall looks a bit better.

Possibly, but my statement was because it reminded me of the fact that teddy bears used to have faces closer to real bears. Then, their faces were rounded, and snouts shorten. Maybe they went with that principle with G4 horses
