Ponies are fun to draw. But only Rarity and Pinkie Pie turned out half decent. D':

This is somewhat fitting. A bit of analyzation involved.

Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie fits their seasons in personality, and to some extent, colour. Fluttershy has the caring and nurturing nature of spring and she usually wears green, a colour commonly associated with that season. And not to mention some flowers, which frequently bloom in the spring, are coloured blue/cyan, pink, and yellow (there is even one blue flower in the picture). Colours which Fluttershy also has. The sun also shines a bit yellow in the picture.

Pinkie has the fun and spicy element of summer. Summer could also be interpreted as fiery, although Pinkie doesn't really have that trait. The water in the picture gives off a bright blue colour, which corresponds to the blue in Pinkie's eyes and cutie mark (although she's wearing shades, though). I also love how you have her sunglasses with a yellow frame, a yellow ducky tube, and a lemonade. Which further gives appeal to Pinkie's image, for the yellow in those items correspond to the yellow (although a small amount) in her cutie mark.

While Rarity and Applejack fits their seasons in terms of their colours. Although I could be a bit wrong here. The dominant white in Rarity corresponds to the white snow, which is also quite dominant in the winter. The blue, purple, violet, or indigo in Rarity's other parts are accents which match the rather melancholic skies of a winter night with the Moon shining.

Applejack in general looks just as orange as the fall. Red and yellow looks fitting on both the season and the pony. Her hat also corresponds to the colour of the soil and the trunks of the trees. Fall or autumn is the season of harvest, and we see Applejack harvesting or at least carrying a variety of apples in the image. Apples come in different colours such as red, gold, and green.

What do you mean 'But only Rarity and Pinkie Pie turned out half decent'?  They all look great!  I love the lighting you gave each one!  Don't sell yourself short!

Rarity should be wearing the fashionable winter boots she loves.
Frostbite365 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The lighting is really awesome, AJ and Pinkie are my favorite!
sweetanime22 Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2012
This is a fun picture to see.
Thentiar Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012
That's stunning! The light seems so realistic. And all the seasons are very fitting!

I just can't see, where the winterlight is coming from... The moon is behind her, ain't it?

Thanks for this!

And yeah, my Rarity in my Winter!
Potzi-Hookman Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Yes! My favorite season is my favorite pony! I love AJ and Autumn

I...Love Winter...
Wertyla Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Amazing! I think you picked the pony for each season perfectly. Not only do their color schemes match, but so do their personalities and hobbies!

Winter: It's awfully cold during the winter, which means it's time to bundle up in clothes, clothes, and more clothes! Winter is probably the busiest time of year at Carousel Boutique, and Rarity can make so many unique and wonderful designs. Coats, boots, hats, scarves, socks! Not to mention that the snow matches Rarity's pure white coat perfectly!

Autumn: Autumn is a time of harvesting. The trees turn beautiful shades of orange, red, yellow and brown and all the goodies that the Apple family has been growing are ripe and must be picked before Winter comes! Thanksgiving is a wonderful time for Applejack and co. to bake delicious pumpkin pies and prepare other foods, and Applejack sure enjoys getting to eat it all at the feast!

Spring: A time of rebirth, Spring is when beautiful trees, bushes and flowers start to grow, and baby animals are born. Bears and skunks come out of hibernation and the brand new baby birds chirp as their wait for their mothers to bring them worms. Fluttershy loves assisting the little animals, and the big ones, too. They are all just so adorable to Fluttershy!

Summer: School is out for the fillies, and Pinkie Pie sure is a filly at heart. Summer is a time for fun, fun fun! Barbecues, pool parties, visits to relatives and friends; Pinkie loves it all! It may be very hot, especially out in the sun, but it gives Pinkie a great reason to dive into the pool, get a cool glass of juice or lemonade, and buy plenty of yummy ice cream!

I remember wanting to vote this higher than a 5/5 in one of the Welovefine pony design contests. It's so beautiful...any year filled with pony is a good year...:'D Applejack is my favorite quadrant; she's the PERFECT pony to represent Autumn, and the lighting there is so stunning. Fluttershy is absolutely perfect for spring, too. What a peaceful shot of her and the first little bloom in the forest. :3 Pinkie's pool or lake or ocean or whatever looks incredibly inviting, and the wintertime Rarity pic is also amazingly pretty. Why does it instantly remind me of the "Wishing Bear" episode of Winnie the Pooh? Probably just 'cause I'm weird. But anyway, I love this. :dalove:
Jiayi Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Aha, thank you so much but are you sure you saw this on a welovefine contest? Because I've never participated in their t-shirt contests before...
no1wantsthisname Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2012
Really? Hmmmm, I must have seen it somewhere else, then, around the time of one of the contests, and associated it with that because there were a few similar designs entered (with ponies representing holidays and seasons. I love those!) Anyways, sorry 'bout the mix-up! =)
Jiayi Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
ooh okay. that's good then! I had someone enter one of my pics before in the WLF contests and I wasn't very pleased about it haha...
no1wantsthisname Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2012
^^ Ohhhh, heh heh...definitely not permissible to submit something you didn't draw yourself or at least get permission to submit...:0
Drgnwolf Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2012  Student General Artist

These four fit those seasons so perfectly you can't say they don't without somepony saying your wrong.
thesprinkledust Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2012  Hobbyist Artist

It's perfect. Expressions are perfect and all your stuff is amazing. After I saw that one amazing one about all the episodes, I started working on three drawings. [link] please check it out and tell me what you think. :)
Pink--Champagne Featured By Owner May 11, 2012
They all fit so perfectly.
My personal place to quietly be,
is on that clear winter's night with Rarity.
ccarolinett Featured By Owner May 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
very befitting! I loved what you did with Pinkie at the end there too =]
[her snout kind of remind me a sort of pokemon for some reason 0.0]
Ragnarokia Featured By Owner May 6, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Rarity is indeed the type to enjoy the beauty of winter. Especially since she gets the chance to wear her range of personally tailored scarves.
Sharkwellington Featured By Owner May 4, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Your style is lovely - so soft. :)
ANANIMOUSCREATOR Featured By Owner May 3, 2012  Hobbyist Artist

GypsySquid Featured By Owner May 2, 2012   General Artist
This makes a lot of sense.
Shukumei7 Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2012
Wow, I never really thought of them as reflecting seasons but they fit perfectly. I do agree that Rarity and Pinkie came out the best, but I also really like the Fluttershy one. Her attention being drawn by that little flower just fits her personality to a T.
SEMC Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I love this a lot.
Thysania Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2011  Hobbyist
I think your Fluttershy and Apple Jack are also nice. Like the vibrant BGs.
Scropion-Blood Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2011

jazz33 Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
