This is part 1, where I showcase the other mane 6 characters for duodecim.
I decided to take a bit of a risk to put less emphasis on their references to final fantasy and more on themselves. I wanted to focus on making each of them unique and stand out in their own way. After FF6, there were less emphasis on character classes, starting with warriors, and made them more of unique class. FF12 and FF13 are the more obvious examples of this.
Might need to redo Vinyl Scratch. Tron looks cool but a bit too out of place...
The characters are the following from left to right:
Spitfire from her Wonderbolt Academy days as a staff sergeant/platoon leader. A loose connection between her and Lightning as they are both military personnel.
Dr. Whooves - Dr Whooves being like a time mage.
Derpy Hooves - Derpy just being derpy
Vinyl Scratch [considering changing her outfit to be less anachronistic]
Octavia - Bard class in a victorian era style (inspired by eternal sonata)
Zecora - Alchemist
Expect more to come!
