Art of the Brony Book by HurricaneChiela Art of the Brony Book by HurricaneChiela
For a final project in one of my classes, we were to make a book on whatever subject we wanted. I have become an avid brony over the course of this last semester, and so I thought what better final project than to compile everything I've learned about the fandom into a cute little package.

I designed the book as 7x5 inches, so it is very small. I wanted it to be sort of like a pocket guidebook for anyone who either knows nothing about bronies or for a new brony who is just getting into the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic series.

In the book, I have a few different sections. First, I defined what a Brony is. Second, I talk about the main characters and some fan favorite background characters in the show. Then, I moved onto the different art forms the amazing brony community does. I talk about the modification of existing Hasbro toys to make them show-accurate as well as the plushie community. I also talk about fanfictions.

While the class project only required the book to be 8 pages, mine ended up being 26 in total. At this point there is still a lot more I would like to add. I did not mention every background character that the brony community loves, and there are a lot more sculptors and plush makers that I'd like to feature in my book.

I did use some of the beautiful drawings that other artists have posted on deviantart. I'd like to give credit to the following:

Thanks to :iconmegasweet: for the beautiful mane 6 vectors.

Thanks to [link] for the page that accompanies my explanation of bronies.

Thanks to :iconbabylondonstar: for the beautiful plush photos.

Thanks to :iconspacevoyager: as well for the beautiful plush photos (and for making my Rainbow Dash so beautiful!)

Thanks to :iconotakusquirrel:, :iconyoucanhasponies:, :iconmodern-warmare: for your wonderful modified ponies.

I decided to upload a low-quality PDF of the book for those that might be interested in seeing the entire thing. You can see it here: [link]

This is really amazing!

Awww thank you! I want to keep adding to it because so many amazing artists such as yourself deserve to be in it!

That is so sweet! And very flattered! I downloaded the PDF so I could look at it and I think you did an AMAZING job. Maybe you could find a way to reproduce ot for BronyCons if people were interested? (I don't know how expensive these things are) But even just having a complete one for yourself would be fun. I hope you're able to complete it!

Well, I think even if I poured all my time into it, it could never be completed. It seems like every day I'm finding brand new brony artists. The community is growing too quickly!
