Getting as Big as a Horse by bonusart Getting as Big as a Horse by bonusart
Since it was Sunday, I decided to work on something for my own enjoyment. Not being a pegasus or unicorn, the half-humanization doesn't really have that many pony parts... Oh well... I always liked Cheerilee's design, so I was glad when she got a more prominent role in an episode (a pretty hilarious role at that). They always seem to pull off great characterizations.

I put quite a few hidden things in this picture. You might not be able to see all of them without viewing it at full size.
The blackboard is of course playing on the fact that the first time her class was shown, she had up some pretty strange mathematics.

Edit: Made an attempt to fix the eyes.

Please make a sequel so we can not only see her bigger (immobile?) but also see more hilarious background shit.

"Placeholder Title"... What a masterful work
of equestrian literature.

Great Job bonusart!

If somepony is trying to make her fat, I wouldn't blame him, because then there'd be more to love! XD

Also, the Homestar Runner reference made me laugh.

I think using pony as a pronoun hints at a very xenophobic culture- after all, other species live in pony society as well. That would be like us using "human" instead of "one" in everyday language.

Not sure that most people's immediate conclusion would be that they were being fattened up, but whatever floats your boat. Or weighs it down so it sinks under their titanic ass. Whichever works. You did a really good job on the half human thing, too.

You just have to see a specific episode to completely understand.

The chalkboards on the show have always bugged me, all of them have the same equation, is Celestia planning to destroy Saturn?

It's a good question what exactly is going on in that classroom. Maybe Equestrian kids are brilliant when it comes to the hard sciences. Or maybe Cheerilee's just trying to look smart for visitors.

In regards to her dialogue, looks like they're succeeding. ;p lol

Very nice semi-humanized, and semi-anthro' take on her. Kinda odd she has a human nose, (I would've prefered the usual snout, sense she has pony ears) but I like your mixture of human, and anthro' design here, and keeping some of her pony traits in tact like her color, and ears. :)
I also like her outfit to, and she looks pretty cute all chubby. (Especially her legs. Hehe) Very nice take on her.

I also love the book title background gags. ;) The "Twilight Zone" homage is a nice touch, especially. Hehehe...

Giving her a combination of pony ears and a human nose is an odd choice to be sure, but it can be explained in the sense that I was more or less using the human traits as the base and added the pony ones. This is to create a more "catgirl" effect than an anthro one (catgirl used as an example referencing humans with animal characteristics).

I am now tempted to commission you to do a piece set in a library exclusively for humorous book spines.

I have to say, this is one of my favorites of your pieces. There's something sexy about the fact that she's a well-dressed BBW/SSBBW, and you gave her a rather nice design as well. Really soft, huggable and snuggable.
