Let Them Eat Cake by Whitestar1802 Let Them Eat Cake by Whitestar1802
In an attempt to expand the eras in my series of Historical Ponies, I bring you Pinkie Pie as the last queen of France: Marie Antoinette.

I can also imagine Pinkie saying "Draw me like one of your French Mares" in this picture. :lol:

So...reasons for choosing to cross Marie and Pinkie other than the disturbing lack of Pinkie in my gallery: Pinkie's Gala dress is extremely similar to Marie's dress in the portrait this was based off of (massive gown, lace in similar places, big ass bows, and even the hat). They also both grew up in relatively strict environments as children before moving onto more carefree, leisurely lifestyles. Both had rediculously long names (Pinkamena Diane Pie, Maria Antonia Josepha Johanna). And finally, Pinkie's toy (from the blindbags and Celestisa set) always reminded me of French hairstyles for some reason. I think it's the curls. Throw in the fact the line "Let Them Eat Cake" and I just knew I had to.

My most complicated Historical Pony yet, I tried to use alot of background and foreground elements similar to the portraits of Marie. I also really love the style Le` Brun (Marie's foremost portrait artist: [link] ), it's as if the lights in the picture are glowing, so I tried to duplicate that effect. I think I'll continue using more complex bg's for the rest of the Historic Ponies. :)

P.S. Pinkie would never be able to make this pose, as that dress would've been supported by massive panniers. however this is Pinkie Pie. She defies all laws of reality.

And before you historians tear me to pieces I know Marie Antoinette never said "Let them eat cake". I just liked how well it fit Pinkie, and it's heavilly associated with Marie, so I used it.

And it's not wine in that glass, it's berry punch. :>

Enjoy. :)

I would imagine Pinkie and Marie would throw a hell of a party! XD

Nice job!

You think Rarity could pull of Queen Victoria? I think she could. A future idea maybe?---> [link]

Maybe Dr. Whooves or Discord pulling off George III?--->[link]

Cadence and Shining Armor as King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella? Using this as a reference? [link]

I dunno. I already drew Rarity as Marilyn Monroe, and I haven't drawn any historical ponies in awhile, so we'll see. ;)

I think Pinkie belongs in the 1920s. But hey, you're the artist.
Question: do you have a thing agaisnt Rarity? I feel like she'd look good as a historical pony . . . you know, even if you wanted to make a joke out of her and make her Napoleon or something . . .

It's weird that the "draw me like one of your French Gils" meme was inspired by Marie Antoinette. I hate to burst your bubble but Marie Antoinette may have ruled France but she was born in Austria.
