Mare Genius: Agatha by SynCallio Mare Genius: Agatha by SynCallio
So there's this webcomic called Girl Genius. I like it for several reasons, among which is that the characters and their motivations are realistic and complex enough that there are maybe two unsympathetic people in a wide and varied cast; it's hilarious; and the main character is a an intelligent, talented, ever-so-slightly-crazy woman. Who wears glasses. And nobody cares about the glasses.

Also, it's about mad science. Lots and lots of mad science. Which contributes to the hilariousness, let me tell you. Ponifying the cast is not only fun, it's (probably) within the realm of Girl Genius's possibilities.

So here is our heroine, Agatha, ponified.

I got a whole series of these I want to post, so feel free to suggest characters. (Note: Not all sparks will be unicorns. I'm suspicious of the implications, and some people are meant to be pegasi. Or earth ponies.)

Others in the series:
Gil and Tarvek
Violetta and Zeetha
Baron Wulfenbach
Othar Tryggvassen
Bangladesh duPree
Da Boyz

Done in ArtRage, using chalk and ink.

Shouldn't she be an Alicorn? I mean she IS part-deity & all.

Well, looks like it's about time to analyse the specifics of unicorn magic...

I love her golden mane.

YAY! I am not the only one who thought of this, and thankfully it was someone with art skills!
And you are so right, not all should be unicorns. In my concept, the more powerful ones were usually unicorns. (and jagers were half griffon, the more mutant looking, the more griffon-like)
you are really making me want to try my hand at drawing these guys ponified again!
I cannot wait for more!

How's about Da Boyz? (Dimo, Ognian, and Maxim?)

I've heard of that comic, but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. It sounds like a lot of fun. Lovely work!

Though I don't know your feelings on the subject, I feel obligated to mention that the artist tends to draw women with... huge tracts of land. (To be fair, they also find many excuses to get the male characters' shirts off.)

(It's interesting, really: Agatha is mortified to be seen in her "underwear" - as modest as a t-shirt and shorts - consistent with 18th or 19th century modesty. The story has innuendo, but nothing dirtier than you'd find in Animaniacs.)

Ah, I see. I think I feel the same way you do about that, but I'll give it a read anyhow. Thanks for the heads up!
