One for All... by harwicks-art One for All... by harwicks-art
As always, I encourage you to click the image above for the full size version.

Yes, I admit it... these particular pretty ponies are posed like people, purposefully not portraying proper pony posture. And frankly, I do not fully approve. However, for some reason I got it into my mind to draw up some pony Musketeers and just became enamored of the idea of how these particular ponies matched up to the classic characters.

About halfway through I realized that I could have gone with an all-pegasi cast and, due to hovering with their wings, could have had them in proper show poses while still upright and with forehooves free to wield a sword. I promptly told my brain to shut up, 'cause a show about talking ponies doesn't have to make sense 100% of the time, and I wasn't going to go back and change it at that point.

(But it's totally true... Pegasi are the only ponies who would be able to wield a sword. (Well, aside from Unicorns, but why would they bother?) And pony swords should totally have big hoof guards that they slide their legs into, rather than trying to hold them in their mouths. I guess poor Earth Ponies just need to wear heavy armor and trample opponents, while Unicorn weapons could be just about anything... they don't even need handles on 'em.)

It occurs to me as I type this that working on these images gives me far too much time to think about such things. I also note that Pinkie's hair gets progressively crazier each time I attempt it.

Eh... I'm surprisingly okay with both of these facts.

Really nice work. Do you read the IDW-comics? The ponies are shown wielding swords there (I believe it was in Issue 13 and 14 or something like that), and to my greatest joy, Rainbow Dash seemed to have some experience on the topic. But now it bugs me that they never gave a background to her fighting-abilities... Ever since that arc, it is my headcanon that RD has some pirate-relatives since not much about her family was ever revealed, anyway. But oh well.
Great work again, though. I can't stop staring at it^^
