Lop got to see some of these and took pictures of them. Gotta upload them before she does. Also thought it'd be interesting for you guys to see!
This was when Claire was a dragon Scootaloo (also seemingly exactly like siansaar's Lavender), Valiant was a little more like Prism and Estrello existed. If I remember correctly, these were gonna be the only three characters I focused on and Claire was gonna eventually become a part of the guard.
I wanna say these were the first drafts of the next gen (Claire and T not included since I'd already posted drawings of them here). Annie wasn't gonna exist and Fluttershy wasn't gonna have a kid. Also, as you might notice, they look exactly the same as my final product. Not much thought went into their designs lol. That's why I got scurred and confused when they got popular.
Illusion was gonna have edgelord hair. It was planned from the very beginning that Claire and Illusion were gonna have a future together
Drafts for the Prank comic!
Might add more if I find some. Hope you enjoyed looking at these lol. I didn't. I wanted to puke.
