I had a strangely inexplicable desire to see what the Mane Six would look like with pupils more akin to a real horse's, so I did a half-assed job in rendering them as such. Kind of unsettling, really. Makes you glad that the animators took such artistic liberties on their equine designs.

Now they have floating turds that are forever condemned inside of their eyes.

Like I said, I did a half-assed job.

There certainly are better renderings of MLP characters as realistic horses.

Some a little more jestingly unflattering than others.

Since we're doing pretty eyes.

I find something about their gaze very unsettling.

Is anyone else reminded of Hypnotoad?

With modern animation techniques, animating something that looks as detailed as that wouldn't be very cost-effective for Hasbro. MLP:FiM is animated in Flash and a majority of character movements are easily accomplished by 'tweening' lines. Some may scoff at this, criticizing it as cheap and lazy, but it serves well to appease the eye and impress when it wants to.

On the bright side, being a fairly easy style to mimic makes 'fanimations" look a lot like the show. My favorite example, albeit NOT a family-friendly one, is "Derpy Gets Pranked". www.youtube.com/watch?v=ady5wUpIZDw
