I kinda hope they don't really plan to put white angel wings on candy colored ponies.
To use Rarity's word, that is pure fashion crime.
 
too tacky for you? XD
is this like,... for a planned show or something?
 
@trogdor too... pigeon.
 
ah
Pigeonies
XD
sorry that was absolutely horrible I don't know where that came from
 
Or if you prefer... too "Koopa Para Troopa"
I don't mind that they now default to cloven hooves (yet, apparently... they are unable to have BOTH versions in the same show???)
but the white wings do look like a punch in the eye
Especially since they open the door to glitter wings, something that so far only the toys had and... it was fine that way.
they are pegasi, not butterflies.
For that, we already have the breezies
 
lol

@Derpy Hatoful Ponyfriend!
 
@BESW I don't know why.. it just feels off, like the wings were a poor photoshop.
Probably given some time I could live with them, but...
anyway, there is a line
 
It's because large patches of solid white don't match the rest of the design choices.
 
> Every(one?pony?) can make a difference
 
White is otherwise used as an accent, not a fill, and the other fills aren't light enough tints for a pure white to blend alongside them.
 
@BESW Yep, I don't have the graphical design competence you do seem to have, but that's it, it fells out of place

BA in art studio, a dozen years of part-time work as a print designer.
 
As for the line though, "everyone can make a difference", that is intriguing
it does matches some alleged leaks about the plot.
Protagonist being an activist in some group for social support.
could be interesting.
I mean, a carton for childrens, with ponies, about people helping out on topics like bulling, racial hate, homeless people... Either it will go horrible wrong or it could be great
we will see.
 
It's ambitious, for sure.
I'd expect it to live or die by the voices that get heard in the writing room.
 
precisely. Was Lauren directly involved I would be a little more... less nervous...
I guess we can only wait and see
The fact that does match with some unused idea for the G4 Friendship is Magic show gives some hopes.
Yet as you said it means nothing in the wrong hands.
Anyway....
Secret Technique! Trogdor Aaaawwwwwwninator!

@BESW I just realized something else that probably contributed to that "uncanny" felling.
Exact same eye/mouth position on all three characters
and since the eyes are designed in a way that actually makes them look like they are pointed upward, that also ends up a little unnatural.

@Derpy cripes yes, that angle on them does make it look like they're about to do violence to your person

@Derpy you monster :P

Yeah, the wings are definitely not the only challenge that design is facing. And this new image improves the wings significantly by making them a tint.
