First flight by TheArtrix First flight by TheArtrix
So humanized unicorns do magic, this one is pretty logical. When it comes humanized pegasi, there's a larger scale of possibilities; how do you portray humans with an innate ability to fly. One thing that I personally find disturbing is adding animal features to humans, such as cat ears or wings, especially when they seem slapped on. Same with unicorns, why slap a horn on it when humans have fingers.

So I decided to go with a mix between the innate ability to control wind flow and what humans are good at; technology. So here is Rainbow Dash teaching Scootaloo how to use a hang glider.

Oh yea, and Fluttershy is there also, because pegasus.

Although as a pony scootaloo can't fly… At least her human self can! :)

So are you going to show Spike doing his first thing? Because I honestly feel that the show and many of the fans treat Spike different from the other kids and that always kind of bugged me. He is defiantly around the same age as the Crusaders, so why is he always left out whenever they go off to do something?

Spike's an odd character from the very beginning; his origins are highly dubious (that egg had to come from somewhere), he's an entirely different species that normally poses a great risk to the ponies' security, even though he's a "baby" he seems to be on par with the adults in terms of cognitive ability. He's neither in school or has an actual job to make an independent living.

That aside, I did draw something involving Spike, which is entitled Guy talk. It's isn't exactly one of my renditions of Spike, though.

I was thinking something along the lines of something titled "First Breath" or something. If you need me to pay a commission fee, just give me a price and I will see if I can pay. Also yes I am also aaaaceace, one account is for my lap top and this one is for my I-Pad.

What's awesome is that as soon as I clicked on this pic, "Defying Gravity" came up on my playlist. ^_^

"innate ability to control wind flow" could be one of the combo powers of the humanized Pegasus (maybe some gravity control? and some other thingies) perhaps the higher level ones don't even  need to use a hang glider?

OH and your art is very good.

My general take on humanized pegasi, aside from the wind control thing, is that they are naturally very agile, along with gravity control and what have you. They can't outright fly, but they certainly set themselves apart from the other "kinds".

Winged humanizations is just not my thing. It feels lazy and it's not very aesthetically pleasing.
