Ponykind was my business! by Evil-DeC0Y Ponykind was my business! by Evil-DeC0Y
Here is a "pony-fied" version of the character Jacob Marley, from the Charles Dickens classic "A Christmas Carol".
I was originally just going to re-size and clean up the original version I did for the Trixie Vs. Christmas special. But after finishing it, I felt that it needed more to it to warrant a individual post on deviant art. So I added some more chains, and made more than one type of weight to the chain, and added a background (fun fact, the background was made with only two colors).

Not sure what would be a good name for her, there are quite a few good ones. I was leaning towards Mare-ley, for the obvious horse pun, but I just don't know if that fits, or if I should go with a more legitimate pony name.
Either way, if you can think up a good name post it in the comments.

Also the eyes are meant to not be focusing on anything in particular. It's strange for a picture to be that way, but the ghost of Jacob Marley is typically portrayed as not looking directly at anyone thing.
I think Jacob Marley is one of the most interesting characters in all of fiction. I wish I had more time, so that I could do more things with this ponified version before Christmas.

I LOVE this. So friggin' much. I adore MLP, and A Christmas Carol is my favorite book ever. Meanwhile...

Jacob Marley is...deeply meaningful to me on a number of levels. He has fascinated me since earliest childhood. He’s the first imaginary friend I remember having as a child, he’s my very favorite character in literature, and he’s been one of my biggest dream roles since I started acting (I have now had the great honor to play him TWICE). He inspires me as he inspired Scrooge, to do well while I have the chance. He's been a huge influence on me, and I think for the better. Also I think there’s more to his story than first meets the eye. More on that in my next comment.

I love everything you did with this image. Aside from being wonderful from a technical standpoint (it looks like a still from the show), it shows an intimate knowledge of the book which inspired it. So, thank you. :heart:

BTW, I looked at your Gallery and am now Watching you. =)
