First steps by TheArtrix First steps by TheArtrix
One thing I noticed in the past season is that we never really got to see the Cutie Mark Crusaders use the abilities of their type of pony; we don't really see Scootaloo fly, we don't see Sweetie Belle do magic, and Applebloom... still not sure what's special about an earth pony other than some vague notion that they have some innate magical bond with the earth? I dunno.

I was looking for an excuse to draw a dangerously adorable humanized Sweetie Belle. She has grown to become my favorite Cutie Mark Crusader so that became pretty much obligatory. Then it dawned to me; why would Rarity try and teach her sister some magic if she can ask the most gifted magician is Ponyville to show her the ropes. Also, it makes for dorky-Twilight, which is always the preferred mode of Twilight.

So here's Sweetie Belle starting out with some basic telekinesis.

I'm also planning to do one with Scootaloo and Applebloom.

EDIT
Made some changes to Twilight's face and glasses, and some other minor changes.

Scootaloo: First flight


Applebloom: First repair

Great idea and I really love Sweetie Belle's expression here. She looks so into it.

That's really what I liked about this picture as well.

I can see this happening on the show, at least I hope it does, especially now that we've seen Sweetie's horn glowing in season 4 ep 1.

That would be pretty awesome, it would give us world building and Sweetie Belle being alarmingly adorable.

If Sweetie Belle put even half the energy into learning magic that she puts into crusading I think she'd do very well indeed. :)

On a related note I believe that her cutie mark will be a hazard symbol with a heart in the middle - for I believe that she is the key to weaponising cuteness and when that happens none of us will be safe!

She'd probably take after her sister; not great at magic overall but really good at a set of specialized spells. Also, generic things like telekinesis.

Very good, but Twilight's nose looks weird

Yes, I'm aware of this. The way I draw Twilight now is quite different.
