Update: used here:… :iconjamey4: deserves a truckload of internet cookies for this, imho :D.

This is the full image as I had it vectored before breaking it down into individual characters. This is also the second time I've vectored this image. Like with my Fluttershy vector, I hope that previous attempt never sees the light of day. I considered adding in the background I used in the previous version as well, but felt it better to submit it as is. Resizing anything leaves me a little wary, and I didn't want to spend an hour messing with it while I'm half-asleep. Especially with the image more pixelated (even in png format) than I would like.

The source shots are from three different episodes. Everypony, except Rarity, came from Suited for Success. Rarity was from Friendship is Magic part 2. Their expressions are borrowed from Twilight's evil grin in A Canterlot Wedding part 1. I would've preferred to give them each a unique expression, and their pose before entering the palace maze during The Return of Harmony part 1 was perfect for just that. Except they're too far from the camera for even the best quality screenshot I could come up with to work. I spent several hours vectoring out their eyes from that screen cap and tweaking them after a resize, but it just kept going downhill. Eventually I had to take them out as too much time was being spent for the quality I needed.

This shot isn't actually done. I have at least 2 more elements to add to each pony before I can call this image finished, but it's going to require line art before I vector the remaining pieces. Hopefully it'll only take a few days as the pieces are minor, however I will be busy for the next couple of weeks with work and family business. Once it's done, I'll probably take a couple of days off from vectoring as I have been buried in photoshop for nearly two solid months.

As this is a trace from the show, I can't let it be used for anything like that :/

However I'm open for commissions if you'd like me to create something similar specifically for your project :) My info can be found here
