Dissidia Duodecim FiM The other mane 6 by DLowell Dissidia Duodecim FiM The other mane 6 by DLowell
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!

Critique welcome and encouraged

If there was to be an extra villain I'd say Gilda would take one of the spots.

Great picture, but you're right about Vinyl looking out of place. At first glance I didn't see her (counted only 5 ponies), I guess she doesn't have enough contrast to derpies clothes. At second glance she looked awesome, but out of place. Still a great pic overall, though.

Should I try to do the full line up of duodecim? This took a little over a week. Since I would have to do 10 more characters, it will take 2 weeks... -_-

Oh and here is something I had a thought on, spitfire kind of has to much of a male face. Just a though. Your the artist though.

No, you're right. I am still working on spitfire's face. Need to be more feminine, which is hard for me to do with ponies.

Duodecim is the prequel to dissidia final fantasy.

Ah, I have never played final fantasy or any of it's prequels or sequels. The poses on the ponies is spot on though.

I'd love to start a fan fic on this; but I could only choose 5 of the possible 6.

If you are going to start a fan-fic on this, do you want me to note you on what characters are on the side of Harmony and Chaos in Duodecim?
Reply
:icondarkoverlords:
darkoverlords Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013
Sure; but I can only choose 5 (not 5 on both Harmony and Chaos which makes 10) in-show pony characters.

P.S. - May I use this as the cover art as well? If you don't mind that is.

I beat feral chaos at cycle 000 with one character, the warrior of light. He was one tough sob.

So, those headphones Vinyl is wearing, are those based on the limited edition white headphones Monster released for Tron Legacy?

Really? Funny coincidence, I just chose a simple white bing headphone for vinyl. LOL

On this one, I focused more on personality and abilities rather than character classes.

Yes, the classes you suggested for spitfire, dr whooves, Octavia and zecora would work.

Derpy is just Derpy. XD

Vinyl's tron outfit with the strobe lights matches with her fave music and personality. Guess you could call her a disc jockey.

I know. But since the strobe lights fit her so well and they are both disc jocks, (pun intended) I decided to go with that.

Well the entire point of Dissidia is that everyone is pulled from different times and universes. Can someone even be anachronistic in this scenario? I say keep her.
