EqD ATG II - Day 20 - Species Switch by muffinshire EqD ATG II - Day 20 - Species Switch by muffinshire
"And I still don't have a cutie mark!?"

My entry for day 20 of Equestria Daily's Artist Training Grounds II. The brief was "draw a pony with their species switched".

Not a particularly complicated piece this evening after a couple of days of rather intricate ones with lots of props and background stuff, but this was another good opportunity to play with lighting and shading.

One little aspect of the show that I find sweet is the relationship between Apple Bloom and Zecora. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw an actual species-swap episode in the show (not necessarily with Zecora and Apple Bloom in a potion mishap, but someone and somehow) - the "don't be ashamed of the way you're born" message it could impart is a positive one.

Could always see Apple-Bloom getting a science or healthcare related cutie mark after seeing those episodes. She just always seemed so fascinated by Zecora's concoctions and Zecora seems to be somewhat of a mentor to her. After that episode, I always saw Apple-Bloom's cutie mark being a microscope with some apple seeds in the slide. Either that or her growing up to be a vet/doctor (in a universe where the dominate life forms are animals, seems like the term doctor and veterinarian could be interchangeable) and having a holistic approach. Maybe a medical caduceus emblem made out of a "tree of life"? Everyone else says she's probably going to be an artist or construction worker, I honestly just can't see that. I LOVE Zecora with Apple-Bloom's coloring!

The look on Zecora's face. Can you imagine her rhymes in a filly's voice?

Interesting to say the least. I wonder what the other ponies would look like as zebras. XD
