My Little Mages Complete by Didj My Little Mages Complete by Didj
UPDATE!!!
There's this guy going by the handle "Yondy" who is writing a fanfiction about "My Little Mages" and posting it on fimfiction.net entitled "Tales of Mystika: A My Little Mages Book". And it is bloody brilliant. Especially chapter 2. Go check it out and show him some support.

Some of you might not know, but in the Brony community, I am fairly well known for drawing a series of images called "My Little Mages". Which are characters from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic re-imagined as humanized fantasy characters. Each character given a magical class title that reflects their personality.

I originally only posted them to ponibooru, but a few people on DA requested that I start posing them here. Well, instead of uploading every single image to DA, I decided to put them all together in this one image. If you would like to see each one individually and in larger scale, they can be found here [link] along with a few other pieces of MLP fan art that I didn't upload to DA.

*Looking at this for the nth time XD*

Celeste's metal wing-things remind me a little of the Protoss probes from Starcraft 2. Did anyone else notice?

Sounds good to me. Though I typically just pick the magical classes for my drawings based on minimal research and going with whatever sounds cool.

Pretty damn cool. You even managed to work a horn into the princess' tiaras without making it look silly (although Twilight does look a bit like a triceratops there).

The giant masks floating around Zecora; would those be influenced by Disney's Atlantis, by any chance?

Spike looks cute as Twilight's familiar, but I thought that she would have Owlicious as her familiar instead and Spike would be some kind of mage too.

I am actually drawing a few sketches of what their new look would be, giving them updated clothing which each incorporates their shared emblem in a unified yet individual way. I have some solid designs for Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo, but I haven't come up with something fitting for Apple Bloom yet.

So how does that work? They use magic tools forge, energy sources or infuse magic with their craft and enchant them?

Didj Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2015
It varies based on the source material, but from what I've read, an Atrificer in D&D is someone who can craft magical equipment such as magic armor or magic arrows. A high level Artificer is able to build constructs, which are mechanical beasts. I guess another way to look at it is that they are the engineers of the magical fantasy world.

I love the designs! I was wondering where you get inspiration for drawing fantasy armour/clothes. I know there are loads of RPGs to look at but I kind of wanted it to feel like something I created and not copied.

:icondidj:
Didj Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2015
Thank you for your compliment. It is hard to say where exactly I get inspiration for designing the various fantasy outfits of the My Little Mages. I guess I first look at the practicality of the dress based on who the character is and what they do. Take Rainbow Dash for instance, she is athletic which calls for something form fitting and not cumbersome, She is also prideful which calls for something to boast her silhouette such as the feathered shoulder armor. Since Pegasi are from Greek mythology, I based a lot of the design after that era. Beyond that I just sort of go with the flow, I focus more on interesting shapes with the outfits and see how I could practically put such fabric together. I try to ask myself what kind of clothes that character would pick out for herself.

Thanks for your take on it. I'm starting to see where your coming from. I didn’t want to draw anything so over the top like in Wow or stupidly crafted armour you can't move in.
Reply
:icondidj:
Didj Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2015
Well, to prevent yourself from over-designing it, just keep two thoughts in mind. 1- the character has to be able to easily put this outfit on and take it off. And 2- you have to be able to accurately re-draw this character multiple times from different angles and poses.

Honestly? I love this series, but...I feel AJ and Mac should be switched. I feel that the Paladin's "stchick" as a "protector" would fit the older sibling better. After all, before fantasy fiction, "paladin" and"knight" were synonymous. Can you give the reason for the choices you made?

We need another set of characters that have their look updated for this world. Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon haven't gotten the treatment yet, I wonder what they'll translate to. I also want to see the Cakes get the treatment.
