Hoity Toity by harwicks-art Hoity Toity by harwicks-art
Man alive, Hoity's mane ended up being far more complicated to draw and color than I had suspected. Still, for a fabulous pony, some serious effort going into his appearance seems appropriate. I have to give the fashion expert some credit... he was really the first of the non-Princess Canterlot elite to be shown as a pretty decent guy in the end. He didn't stick to the first impressions he had of Rarity as a designer, and was more than willing to sing her praises when her true talent showed.

Fancy Pants was also a pretty okay dude.

Fancy Pants was pretty awesome in my opinion...  Hopefully he'll return in Season 4.

He should have more screen time in season 4!

He has a neat design... I'm not surprised that Hasbro elected to make a figure of him.

Swag. This guy got style.
Also, my non-serious head-canon is that he and Photo Finish are Vinyl's parents. I think that the comic disproves this (or at least makes it unlikely) at one point, but it's still an amusing concept.

Ha... that's actually a clever family idea.  Perhaps two super trendy Earth Ponies make for a hip, rebellious unicorn daughter.

Unfortunately, I wasn't the one to come up with the idea, it was in a fic where Vinyl is a vampire, er, "My Roomate Is A Vampire" www.fimfiction.net/story/36388…

Still funny, but not quite as funny as the idea that Vinyl's hair was originally equivalent to a large ball of white cotton wool before being styled properly :D

Flash Fire: If you thought drawing his mane was bad you should see his mane stylist work on it. Sure she is a Canterlot unicorn but honestly its almost as bad as watching Rarity try to complete Candies's crystal hair do. Dragonking17: with Flash's coment aside I say you did a very good job at capturing Hoity's High aristocratic nature.

Thanks!  He certainly has the elaborate look for an Earth Pony who only has hooves to adjust his cravat.

Nicely done, really posh, as he should look. 
He was indeed one of those that was shown in a very nice light once we got a bit deeper than the facade. Many of the "snoppy elite" really were not bad :)

Blueblood, Jetset and Upper Crust seemed to be the worst of them... although the ponies at the Gala were at least no fun at parties.

True enough, and while those ponies that Rarity hang out with during her visit were not really dislikable as such, they were only interested in her because she became so popular as she did. 
On the more positive side we only really had Hoity Toity, Fancy Pants and Sapphire Shores, though I suppose she is more a celebrity than an actual high-society pony. I am still not sure where I would place Photo Finish in that split.

He looks proud in this shot, but not overbearingly so. You don't really get the whole "I am far superior to you" from this looks, more a supreme confidence. Well done with the pose and expression!

I really like the Canterlot elite.
I know they are "suppose" to be the snobby ponies, but they have some really interesting characters. Photo Finish, Hoity, Fancypants, Fleur.

Hopefully we can get an episode in the future where they visit ponyville or something. Would be fun too see them "out of their element"
Well done on the portrait btw. You captured his essence well.

Truth be told, I even like Jetset and Upper Crust for being jerks who always get shown up by Rarity.  So yes... "Sweet and Elite" was one of my favorite episodes.

Hum. I hadn't thought about that, but you're right. He IS decent. Still, I like Fancy Pants much more :D

I wonder if we will see him again. Apart from background, of course.

I could see him popping up in another Rarity fashion-centered episode.
