I asked last month if I should do Harry Potter characters in My Little Pony style, including a chart of the various characters.
I went ahead and did it (and the chart’s still under construction), even though no one replied.
I really can’t draw this style. I’ll keep doing it.
There’s a lot of headcanon involved with it in order to make the universes fit (one of them, as you can see, is that some ponies fur, most especially lighter ones like Lily and Harry’s, can be born dark but will lighten as they get older). Harry is a naturally born alicorn, and Voldemort was a unicorn before he did some rituals to extend his life or w/e (haven’t nailed it down yet). Neville is also a unicorn born to unicorn parents, which really convolutes the meaning behind Voldemort choosing Harry as the Boy(Colt?)-Who-Lived.
Harry’s cutie mark is three clovers in radial order with three six-pointed black stars between them and a single six-pointed star in the direct middle. There’s some interesting symbolism with the stars (like here, and here). Four-leaf clovers, as always, represent good luck. I figure Harry would get the clover marks as early as first year after he woke up in the hospital wing when he realizes just how lucky he is to have not died. The stars, however, came after he died the first time. Of course, that would be when he proved his mastery of the deathly hallows, having used or become the master of all three at that point, so the two markings combined would resemble the symbol of the deathly hallows (something I only just noticed).
When he was born, his eyes were well on their way to green, explaining my colouring of his eyes as slightly bluer. He really does have his mother’s eyes. I couldn’t fit glasses in there just right so I just forewent them altogether. I’m thinking of just saying fuck it and just not putting them in pics, just in any fics I write.
James’ cutie mark is a shield because duh, auror? I figure he got his later in life, maybe after saving his first person as an auror or something, it’s not really clear to me. Lily’s is a puzzle piece because, while she was logical, she was also passionate and an enigma (insert assload of reasons b/c of this sentence). It was also the one cutie mark in the generator (located here) that had a remote inclination to her in any way, I felt.
Now, I can go on and on about this world, so just ask me if you want any of my other headcanons!
