There are a lot of things I personally disagree with, but good work!

Yeah, it's not the best idea overall, and probably not the best way to go around picturing that idea, but at least I've drawn something today.

Also, out of sheer morbid curiosity, what exactly do you disagree with? I can't really change anything drastically at this point, but it'd be interesting to know regardless. What would you have done differently?

Well, for one thing, ther- CAPTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN PLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!



But yeah, Captain Planet (thankfully) wasn't composed of parts of the five kids, so that alone throws off the comparison.

Yes, but like I said, I only intended that at first. When I realized I couldn't come up with a proper ponified persona without a reference, I suddenly remembered the page image for TVTropes' All Your Powers Combined:



Therefore, Captain Platypus.

Also, I believe I like how it looks shrunk, enough so to temporarily set it as my avatar. It fits me, in a way, because my only answer to "which is your favorite pony" is "all of them" - and the character represents that, in its own slightly twisted way.

Seeing those images, most of my objections disappear. Your design is way better than the original CP. That leaves my general objection to your more "realistic" style, and the objection to captain planet.

Fluttershy's the personality. The entire personality.

The Elements originally did create Harmony, the alicorn. She was completely damned useless because she ran away from everything big and bad.

Celestia and Luna intentionally tweaked the magic in the Elements so they'd create the Rainbow Beam instead.

Moreso, Discord was actually in love with Harmony, and her 'destruction' was his start to darkness.

Aforementioned great story aside, her influence are the eyes - that slightly lowered edge with a thicker bunch of eyelashes, and the color - plus the overall shape of the tail, curls and poofyness (which are Pinkie and Rarity influences) aside. I tried to concentrate on the "best" parts of every character, since the fusion would have to have all their strengths. Fluttershy's strengths are... well, they're inside. The only outward characteristic she has is The Stare, which I tried to represent with the eyes. The only character I think I didn't properly represent is Pinkie, but the only other thing I could do was leave the forelegs pink rather than orange, which would, IMO, disbalance the color scheme beyond acceptable levels.

In retrospective analysis, I guess this was the logic behind the design:
Pinkie was chosen as the base, because happiness and laughter is "within", in the heart, so to speak. The base color and the outlines were thus chosen to be pink.
The face is colored an off-white, and the horn is tinted with the same - Rarity influence, probably the "external beauty" part. The rest of the head is Twilight's color, representing the intelligence inside that pretty skull.
Legs are orange, obviously representing Applejack's strength, and wings are Rainbow's, for her speed.
The hair was probably the most random and difficult to make, because it's mostly ornamental. Head hair was simpler, I quickly settled on merging Rainbow's hairdo with Twilight's, since even the color spectrum worked for it. The mane I had thought of some variations for, for instance using Pinkie's poofs as either the top or the bottom half, but eventually settled on Rarity and Applejack, because AJ's ponytail is a pretty recognizable thing which I didn't want to miss, and Rarity is very scarcely represented. The tail... well, it's a bit of a clusterf*ck, as you can see. The primary color is Rarity's, the general shape is Fluttershy's, with Pinkie's poofs, Twilight's (nigh unnoticeable) twin color strip, and even some of RD's jagged hairstyle thrown in. And the base of it is also Applejack, since it basically connects to her, erm, plot. So, that's that. Captain Planetypus.

No new art today... busy as all heck.

Got a quick overhaul of Captain Planetypus's eyes done though, hopefully for the better.



(I tried adding AJ's hat... it looks exceedingly silly, so I won't even post it)

Sketchy time!

I've no idea where I was initially going with this. I think it was Power Rangers. UltraHORD (Harmony Operated Robotic Destroyer) or something.



edit: fluff:

UltraHORD, merger of six HORDs (Harmony Operated Robotic Destroyers), plus addon.
Twilight - Magenta Ranger, piloting the Harmonic Unity HORD, forming head and torso structure.
Applejack - Orange Ranger, piloting the Harmonic Justice HORD, forming the right arm with dual cannons and hydraulic ram.
Rarity - White Ranger, piloting the Harmonic Benevolence HORD, forming the left arm with the power drill and energy whip.
Fluttershy - Yellow Ranger, piloting the Harmonic Mercy HORD, forming the left leg with jump jets and EMP emitter.
Rainbow Dash - Cyan Ranger, piloting the Harmonic Tenacity HORD, forming the right leg with jump jets and Sonic RainStomp/Roundhouse SonicRainBuck attack systems.
Pinkie Pie - Pink Ranger, piloting the custom "Party Animal" Harmonic Enlightment HORD, forming the backpack with dual shouldered Party Cannons and assorted support items.

Celestia and Luna - present as the unpiloted Harmonic Balance HORD, forming the breastplate, shoulderpads, and assorted armor pieces on the machine.

This might be amazing.

Progress is slow:



And it's not Voltron, it's Power Rangers. Plus bits and pieces from Super Robot Wars OG and Gurren Lagann.

Well duh.

But now that I look at it, it really does look a lot like a SCV.

It looks like a lot of things. But if it's an SCV, it's a very awesome SCV. And if the Terrans have this as their basic worker unit...


Trying to work out how RD's (and Fluttershy's, by extension) mech will look like untransformed so far, so design still not final here.
The foot and some of the shin's internal structure form the rear legs, the things that look like knee joints are actually rotors, and they unfold into powered wings, with the jumpjet very unceremoniously stuffed into a position that's very logical for a fighter jet, but very uncomfortable for a pony. The upper leg forms the base of the forward torso, the (currently invisible) connection mechanisms between the leg and pelvis form the mech's forelegs, and the head is (in)conveniently tucked somewhere in the leg's structure as well. It'd be very easy to handwave all transformation procedures entirely, but I don't like doing that. I still have to figure out what to do with RD's and Fluttershy's HORD manes and tails, as they serve no practical purpose either in separated or joined mode.

I'll just try to handwave the manes. Or solve it during coloring somehow.
