My Little Fraggle Five by Negaduck9 My Little Fraggle Five by Negaduck9
Sometimes I imitate other art styles. It's a fun way to loosen up. And the style used in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is pretty simple, so I didn't have to do as much research as I did when mimicking Don Martin or Albert Uderzo. And both Fraggles and Ponies are candy-colored. So... here's my take on this. I'm sure I can't have been the first person to ponify these guys; these days there's a pony version of everything. It's like Rule 34, but family safe.

Red's giving off too much or a Rainbow Dash vibe, perhaps. But then, they're both brash, athletic pain-in-the-neck types, so I guess it was inevitable. I'm not too satisfied with Mokey's mane; maybe it should be longer. I do like how Eeyore-ish Boober turned out.

Before anyone asks for more MLP art: I'm not a brony. I've seen some of the shows, and they're amusing, but the show doesn't grab me by the throat. However, if I saw a Derpy toy, it'd end up on my computer desk toot sweet.

Boober's cutie mark is fine, but maybe it should have been a scrub board because Boober loves doing laundry. Just saying.

I'm not a "Brony" either, but I love Boober's little unhappy-face thing and he does look kind of like Eeyore- but since all the ponies are different types of horses would he be Boober the Donkey?

Unicorns, pegasi, and regular ponies are all the same species because they can interbreed. So, no need to make any of these characters different species.  However, as Cantus looks like a different subspecies of Fraggle, I made him a llama.  The other Minstrels would be different species; I can see Brool as a gryphon, Murray as a zebra, and Balsam as a mule.

No, it's reached a stage of pure amazingness that the human brain can barely comprehend. I guess that's why my brain exploded just now. I need a mop.

The pony rule is like rule 34, but family friendly.
The rule I'd like to call rule 413 is like the pony rule, but with more time shenanigans and weird plot shit.

Is there a corollary to Rule 413 that allows Derpy to migrate to other fandoms? 'Cuz I've done a Fraggle version of Derpy, and I can't be the only one who's imported her.

The rule I call Rule 413: If it exists, there's a Homestuck version of it. No exceptions.

Oh god, I'm literally crying over how much I love this. I love ponies, I love pony crossovers even more, and Fraggle Rock has a really deep feeling of nostalgia associated with it.

You did a wonderful job capturing them and their Fraggle tails make it just perfect.

Negaduck9 Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012
Thanks! Heh, I couldn't resist giving them Fraggle tails. It was either that or drawing their eyes sitting on top of their heads Muppet-style rather than regular pony-style eyes. (Wouldn't have made any difference with Boober, though.)

Thanks. Boober's cute either in spite of or because of his low-key personality. I don't know which.

No use. I often raid the fridge without turning the kitchen light on, and when the fridge is open I can't see anything on the door. I'd could try taping it *inside* the fridge, but then it would be hidden behind the water jugs, ketchup, syrup, and other stuff. I'll just have to have the image tattooed on my corneas, tricky though it is to line them up right.

Oh, don't be ridiculous. You can't tattoo images in the inside of your eyes. It'd hurt too much. Tattoo it on the inside of your eyelids!
