How in name of Celestia did it take me so long to get around to finishing this piece? Well, school for one and how hard it is for me to paint pink right for some reason.
Anyway, I don't really like ponifying existing characters. I have nothing against it but MLP already has great characters so I enjoy trying to figure out which of them would "cosplay" as other characters. Just how this brony rolls.
Fluttershy's ... shy/nervous nature matches how Nintendo tends to depict Luigi and Angel/Mario are similar because jumping. Bunnies jump, right?
So yeah. There are plans to continue this videogame/pony mashups for me. My next plan is a Rarity as Zelda and Spike as Link because that just makes me smile.
