ORIGINAL REPORT from September 2nd, 2013:
A unique piece of art was created based on News 4 This Morning and a popular animated television series.
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is an animated series that has attracted a passionate fan base of teenagers and adults since its 2010 premiere on The Hub. These fans are primarily known as Bronies. Inside the Brony community, there are many passionate artists covering a wide range of mediums—fan fiction, animation, music, drawings and digital art.
Many Bronies have an Original Character (or OC) avatar that represents themselves on social media, message boards and in artwork. Even some members of the show's staff have their own original ponies as well.
Nathan Barlow a.k.a. ShikariSPEEDER (along with all of the Bronies) has created an original character for News 4 This Morning. Nathan, from Wales, has created a pony with a white body and a bluish-purple mane very similar to the color found in the main News 4 logo. She is holding a microphone and has been presented in multiple forms, including one with sunglasses.
