I'm Just a Pretty Little Filly. by Jdan-S I'm Just a Pretty Little Filly. by Jdan-S
Hoo boy... She looks about ready to use that scythe on me for drawing her like this.. :sprint:

For the :iconmlp-atg-alumni:#MLP-ATG-Alumni group weekly theme: draw a pony harvesting/reaping. I knew it was only a matter of time until something makes me do a crossover between MLP and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy.

Yep, that's a ponified Mandy. But based on the version I designed for "The Grim Adventures of Mandy" fanfic/comic I started literally years ago (which has been discontinued, my apologies.). I don't get to watch much of The Grim Adventures these days, but it's still one of my classic faves.

Here, have some 2005 art for reference! Made me realize exactly how long I've been here at dA! :XD:


Also, inb4 comments that I copied the design from *bleedman. I came up with this version of Mandy after seeing his work, and then the new design had a cameo appearance later on in his manga, including the logo.

I wonder if From Software ever considered making Crossbreed Priscilla a magical horse before they settled on part giant part dragon.  Maybe if she held her scythe with telekinesis she'd be a more tricky fight.

Hahaha :rofl: Ah yes, the good old days of all of those random DA users coming by to accuse you of stealing “Bleedman's original designs”, and then using them without credit to him! :XD: I have to admit, when THAT whole fiasco unfolded itself all those years ago, it was the first time that I realized how little of DA users out there actually take the time to READ the deviation descriptions themselves, or even bother to check DATES on deviations for that matter! Haha ;p

But in all seriousness, boy oh BOY, how time most certainly flies indeed, my friend! :D I truly cannot believe that it has almost been TEN whole years since my eyes were first treated to the sensational sweetness of your heart-stoppingly cute and adorable, yet still so cunningly sadistic, stylization and logo design for Mandy that I fell so dearly in love with, and what still holds such a special place in my heart to this very day! :love: And of course, seeing your classic works of art here once again, that so amazingly show off those fantastically imaginative and originally styled compositions of yours that I have been so blessed to marvel over again and again as time has gone on, brings all of those wonderful, smile-inducing memories flooding back with such fervent vigor, and really shows what a wonderfully creative genius you truly are, and always have been, pal! :D

And I must say, Jdan, that phenomenally creative genius shines through so brightly once here again in such glorious splendor in this fiendishly adorable amalgamation that has flowed from your hands and onto this latest epic canvas of yours! The fabulous interpretation of her classic pink dress and flower symbol that you have composed and culminated together to form her pink coat and complementing cutie mark, the masterful way you have stylized her lovely mane in the same form as the beautifully captivating “combed-down” hairstyle you brought to life within your marvelous original design, and the devilish twinkle in her sparkling green eyes in conjunction with that trademark frown, EVERYTHING about this sweetly diabolical filly screams nothing but “MANDY” with truly resounding force; especially with that looming, glowing green scythe hovering above her head! ;p  Your captivating work here is nothing short of pure crossover perfection, pal, and your love for both of these fantastic series that you have represented so keenly here does such a wonderful justice to them both in the most smile-inducing of ways! :D

Thank you so very much for, not only sharing your BRILLIANT new crossover masterpiece with all of us, but also, for all of the wonderfully fabulous and creative memories that have so profusely reminded us why when it comes to these wonderfully create compositions and crossovers, you are undeniably the absolute MASTER indeed, pal! :D

Yep, those were the days. Really makes one realize how long they've been at deviantART (I feel old :XD: )! It's hard to believe we've both already been at dA for nearly a decade! And it sure is nice to hear just how much you've appreciated this version of Mandy all this time. =)

True, not all people take the time to read the artist's comments. But 
I wouldn't say that people outright accused me of stealing Bleedman's designs. There was just a handful of comments here and there saying it reminds them strongly of his work (not surprisingly, since it is heavily based on his art). =p

It's a shame the Grim Adventures is no longer shown on air around here, which is why I haven't been getting new ideas for the trio. But as I've said, it's now one of my classic faves, just like the TMNT, Tiny Toons, The Angry Beavers and many others (although it's nice that the former is still getting attention to this day)! Still, maybe I should try to make a little something for Mandy and friends (?) this Halloween season.

As always, thanks for the kind words, David! =D

Cute. But Mandy and Cute are two things that don't normally mix.
