Princess Celestia Color Guide by kefkafloyd Princess Celestia Color Guide by kefkafloyd

It appears you don't have PDF support in this web browser. Download PDF

After getting a lot of requests for "What color is that thing?" I decided to put together complete color guides for the new My Little Pony TV show characters. They're intended for informational purposes only and are produced independently. In many cases the swatches are researched from the official artwork, in others I used some analysis and my swatch libraries to get within a reasonable Delta-E.

The intent of using a standard color library (Pantone Solid Coated) is to stay within the bounds of said official artwork, plus give some consistency to colors used. This should help when sourcing supplies for non-digital work. If your application does not support color libraries, then using the eyedropper on the swatch should give you an answer. However, this means you lose the more accurate simulations available by using Overprint preview mode.

Remember to download the attached PDF file and use that for reference. Do not use the preview PNG for reference material, it's intended only for preview on DeviantArt.

This guide discusses a complete color palette for Princess Celestia. I've assembled the guide based on official artwork, my pile of color books, and a spectrophotometer. These colors are from official print artwork, which differs slightly from the show. They will be easier to reproduce across multiple media and more in line with the FiM merch. Show Celestia has a much more vibrant mane that probably doesn't print very well. I'll probably produce a more show-like palette some other time.

This guide is not affiliated with Hasbro in any way and is produced solely in the interest of color science. For a changelog, more long-winded explanations, and other discussions, see this forum topic: [link]

I always thought she was kind of a pale pink. The outlines here, though...maybe a little too pink. I don't know for sure -- I'm not the expert here, YOU are -- but they just seem a little too deep to me.
