EDIT- there was a problem uploading, butifixedit.

Redraw of this: [link]
Mostly because someone got in an adorable little 'argument' with me, where they decided, to put it simply, I'm a piece of shit because I used the talents shown in The Show Stopper, didn't make scootaloo's CM a scooter, and didn't give AB an apple. Oh, and after I said that I had taken references from Show Stopper, they're all "That happened ONE TIME". I would have pointed out that out of the what, four episodes centering around the CMC, the Show Stopper is specifically about them trying to get each other's talents- but he blocked me XD Nice.
I never like AB's cutie marks. I haven't seen a good one online I like yet. The last one I made I didn't like, and this one I don't like, but I figured it's sort of metaphoric for growing up, since AB wants to grow up and be a big pony, and being a big pony involves painting n'shit.
I left the other twos' the same. About Scootaloo: I don't like it when people make her CM a scooter. It just bothers me. I just generally don't like artificial things in cutie marks. Hers centers around doing tricks here- going very fast and spinning. Also I don't like flying Scoots so, none of that here.
This style is really.. different, and new. I kind of made it up as I went along, so it's not great.

Aww, you did a great job with the cutie marks. I really like Applebloom's. Very creative.

It's actually awful, I hate it. I literally only changed the cutie mark because people pressured me to do so.

Have you seen AppleBloom's cutie mark that seems sort of fit, it's an apple half colored and half grayscale with a paint brush in mid stroke coloring it?
Otterlore Feb 19, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Nope. Doesn't sound like I would like it, I hate when people make her cm an apple being painted. People generally don't paint apples.

lol I know, but it's implied, it goes with her name and fits her artsy side! ^^
I love Scootaloo's cutie mark in this. It fits perfectly. XD
They're so cute! >w<
When you say artificial do you mean like a built item? aren't bows sorta the same?

I mean for cutie marks.
And it's... not quite that. I'm fine with bows or paintbrushes or lightbulbs as cutie marks. But I just don't have a preference for cutie marks that are trains, wheels, scooters, etc, unless the pony makes that item. I feel like a cutie mark should represent more of an action- making, growing, doing tricks, painting, etc.
Well Apleblooms cutie mark was a ring when she could do the hulahoop tricks, right? Cutiemarks are weird none the less.
