Hello Equestrian City Fans,

Another release is upon us and thanks to Moon Pearl and her rapid fire abilities, we’re releasing another reference sheet!

This time we’re releasing Impervia, aka Applejack.

After the Canterlot Disaster, the remaining survivors were transplanted across the bay to Equestrian City. Finishing out her schools years there, Applejack became the apple of someone else’s eye, enter one Trenderhoof.

Now without the support system of how to handle things, as she had in the Prime Universe, Applejack was extremely unprepared to deal with all the affection and trouble that came with Trenderhoof, and his obsessive attitude. Eventually she became quite taken with his persistence and finally the two became friends then lovers and finally man and wife!

This didn’t bode well for Rarity who was actually quite taken by Trender herself. As harmony began to spiral into chaos without a proper balance of elements, namely Twilight and her lessons on friendship close by, things took quite a turn for Rarity as well as the others. She came to the conclusion if Applejack was going to take something from her, the only thing to do was repay the favor. But that’s her story for another time ;).

Seemingly untouched by the disaster, Applejack and Trenderhoof eventually formed a company “AppleTrends” and began to supply government contracts for the city. Still at home on the farm and in the field, she oversaw most of the day-to-day harvesting and slowly passing on her trade to her little sister.

It didn’t take long to notice she was stronger than normal. An accident on the farm had led her to find out she was quite invulnerable as well to damage. The upper limits of her powers are not tested, as she finds hero work too time consuming. Able to leap tall orchards in a single bound, she fights only when she has to and only under the name Impervia!

Here’s the reference sheet. I’d love to hear some feedback.

Equestrian City – Concept Art – Heroes

Being a writer with little art skill, I look to others to draw what I see in my head. Here’s some samples for Equestrian City! Unfamiliar with the idea? Read this short intro, takes place near the end of Equestria Girls:Rainbow Rocksrd_colortest_final_2_by_darthmind-d8flh03

This was my first drawing of Rainbow Dash, her superhero name being “Shadow Strike”. Toying with the idea of having her lose her sight or at least some of it, I thought it would be more inspiring in a way she wouldn’t give up and keep fighting, compensating with tech and keeping her handicap a secret from most. A mixture of Batman, Daredevil, and Robin, she’s what I like to call a natural hero. No Flight, no super speed, just outmaneuvering and out fighting the enemy! 🙂

Applejack took on a Batman like persona first, but then I passed that onto Dash. I thought about it for a while and realized she was practically a shoe in for the country girl turned super hero archetype. She just screams Smallville I think, after the event she’s forced to move into the city and help her Uncle Julius (Yes I’m keeping that name :P) Orange. A mixture of Superman and Ms. Marvel, her outfit was more inspiried by the latter. Flight, strength and a near impermeable skin gives her the name of “Impervia”

The last one I’m talking about today is Twilight Sparkle. When designing her I had to keep in mind she was the only one completely out of place in the world and after the “event” that creates the world, she’s now trapped there seeminly forever. I didn’t picture her sitting around moping. I imagined she’d start to do what she always did: Read. After learning that world’s “magic” she became to incorporate in  a way that could tap into her ability to use magic (elementals, sonic, ect) and channel it. The outfit from Power Ponies would have been more then likely Spike’s idea. Becoming a mixture of Tony Stark and Witchcraft from Champions, she takes the name of the “Masked Matter-horn” for real this time!

Thanks for reading, PLEASE give me some feedback if you get a moment, it’s hard to shape clay (write, think, hone) that is my story without SOME input. 😉
