Top Hoof

=== Description ===

I like ponies...
...and I like Top Gear...

So have some Top Gear ponies! :D

For this particular scene I tried to grab the spirit of Top Gear in a single image the best way I can possibly think of... Jeremy Clarkson making fun of James May, with Richard Hammond backing him up *right* before Clarkson starts making fun of him too.

'My Little Pony Friendship is Magic' and all related characters belong to Hasbro and :iconfyre-flye:

'Top Gear' and all related logos belong to BBC Entertainment

PS- Could James May possibly be related to Lyra? :|

===Tools Used===
PaintTool SAI

===Art Notes===
To be honest, this piece has been 90% done for about 2 months now prior to posting it today. It had everything you see here except the silhouette background ponies, which at the time of near completion I wasn't much in the mood for doing, and decided to shelf it for later. But I eventually got off my lazy butt and decided to finish it.

First I had to study the layout of the Top Gear studio, especially the far away background elements, and modify others to be more ponified (like the hoof chairs and table).
After making a rough draft of the background in SAI, I went to sketch up the ponified versions of Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond. While Clarkson was (surprisingly) easy to get right from the get go, I had initial problems with May's 3/4 view (at the time I never noticed you don't see both eyes on a 3/4 view of the stallions) and Hammond I had to fine-tune his trademark small size without making him look like Scootaloo.
Finally, the background 'studio audience' came last. They were easy to reproduce, but tricky to place, since the background has limited space without it becoming cluttered.
But in the end, I managed to get the mane six in there (as well as a fan favorite mare with a bubble cutie mark :D )
