No Thanksgiving in Ponyville by Empyu No Thanksgiving in Ponyville by Empyu
The 30 minute challenge had a special 24 hour challenge for Thanksgiving. This was one of my submissions which I'm posting separately cuz of the holiday. I also had to wait because I didn't want to upload it before it was presented on the challenge blog.

The background is super rushed, but I'm a little interested in whether the difference in coloring the characters is noticeable. I took a very different approach to color this in a hurry and I'm curious as to whether it's obviously different.


Edit:Thanks to whoever submitted this to Equestria Daily! It managed to get into their 1000th Drawfriend. Congrats to them on that. :)

And anyway, it's turkey you want, so you should put down Elizabeak and go after Sir Gobblington.

I thought fluttershy feeds her carnivorous friends meat. Im just surprised they haven't eaten her since shes a horse.

They haven't eaten her because she has tamed them with "The Stare".

Forget the meat and fluttershy part, I never thought some one would actually reply on a 7 month old comment.

I always imagine as part of their evolutionary transition to a sentient species the ponies became omnivores. After all, that's how it went for our ancestors.

Fluttershy, why do you always have to be such a killjoy?

It's a holiday! Have fun!

That chicken barely even knows what's going on, anyway.

Well now I don't know who to believe. The Internet or the internet. O_o

Actually, I did find an article about a book on that subject. However, in Fluttershy's case, she'd probably only resort to it in extreme desperation.

Why does everyone think the ponies are horrified at the idea of meat eating?  Honestly, it's really starting to get annoying.

Yet she feeds fish to her otters and worms to her birds.  I don't why the brony fandom seems to think they would find another sentient species eating meat barbaric.

Well, it's the same with people. We get more attached to certain animals than others. But either way I feel like I'm overthinking it at this point.

Thanks! I've really been looking for more reasons to draw more extreme emotions.

Fun fact: I actually brainstormed a similar idea with Rainbow Dash and Gilda, but I didn't think people would be as sympathetic to them ;p

Now that I think about it, I didn't have chicken or turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. I had roast beef. I wonder if Fluttershy would mind if Applejack went for a cow...

Yup, I was in a hurry to find references and could only find chickens. I felt like I didn't have time to design what turkeys would look like in MLP ;p
