Twilie-bat by Vector-Brony Twilie-bat by Vector-Brony
Ever since :icondashiemlpfim: mentioned the interesting prospect of seeing the mane six as bat ponies. I can not deny that it was a very good idea and had me itching to get started. And as work won't start for another week, I now had the spare time to do this. 

With the design I have worked out some canons for creating a bat pony. 

The first is that the eye colour stays the same with every individuals transformation. A bit like with Buffy the Vampire slayer, where all vampires had yellow eyes.

Second is the manes become more spiky and less tidy. And it looks very cool. 

Third is the cutie-marks change to have a more bat like theme. Like Fluttershy's butterflies became bats, Twilight's stars are now bats as well.

And fourth is the body colours and manes become darker.

Of course this is all my own head cannon and if you have any input that you might think is useful please let me know. 

And also......Who would like to see a Bat-princess Luna?

The watermark is there to stop stealing of my work. If you wan't a plain version of any of my vectors please send me a note.
This was made using traces from MLP FIM

With the Twili bat it was me drawing by eye and adjusting till I was happy. I use the Flutter-bat as a reference for how the mane becomes more messy.

^^ saw the episode where fluttershy turned into bat. Been awesome if they had a bat pony race. ^^ they already have bug ponies, or changlings

They already have bat ponies. Remember the two royal bat ponies that were pulling Luna's carriage in the Luna Eclipsed episode?

And Flutterbat is NOT a bat pony. She's a vampire pony.


There are A LOT of differences between bat ponies and vampire ponies... So don't get the two mixed up.

Is this based on the Flutterbat design in the Bats! episode? Or a head canon design?

Good point, but have you seen Vector's work on Celestia and Luna as vampire ponies?

I'm still waiting on Vector to do Cadence as a vampire pony so that rounds out all the Princesses.

Um, they do realize that there are quite some many vampire hunters out there that would be glad to hunt some big game like this, since I asume that bat ponies are quite rare, and knowing that all 6 of them would travel together, I guese they and there town, which I asume they already vampirised it along the princesses, will have one HECK OF A BIG PROBLEME !!

I'm a bat pony myself and I do hunt vampire ponies.

Oh; bat ponies and vampire ponies are two different species altogether. This Twilie-bat picture is a vampire version of Twilight.

So, bat ponise are like the vegetarians while the vamps are the carnivorous blood suckers.

Bat ponies are just nocturnal bat-like pegasi. They live a nocturnal lifestyle and are basically like any other pony really... (Except for their unique traits that only they have, obviously).

Vamps are carnivorous blood suckers, yes. (Except for Flutterbat).

I assume so. I don't really care though as I don't like vampire ponies... I prefer being my normal bat pony self. I don't want to be a vampire pony.

No. Everypony is (or was) getting down with the vampire ponies...

There's a difference between vampire ponies and bat ponies. Don't get the two mixed up or you forever shall be a bloody racist fruit shop owner.
