Am I kicked out of the fandom yet?
It was really only a matter of time before I did this. And I plan on doing more in future; I’ve actually gotten pretty attached to the Reverse!ponies in particular.
Funnily enough, I actually used a different canon pony as a reference for each pose. For regular Kevin, I used Rainbow Dash (of course). Regular Edd’s pose is based off a picture I found of Fluttershy. I used a fanart of the Great and Powerful Trixie for Reverse Edd’s little strut, and he came out quite nice. With Reverse Kevin, I actually drew most of his body and the position of his head myself, but the walking position of his legs was from a screenshot of Twilight Sparkle.
I was pretty careful with cutie marks, because I wanted them to be just vague enough that they’d make sense in both universes. Edd’s was easier; in either universe he’s a genius, so the atom symbol worked. I dithered for a bit over whether or not I might make unicorn!Edd a magic prodigy like Twilight, and I guess he could be, but I think even in a place like Equestria he’d be more into science than magic.
Kevin’s was a bit tougher because his athleticism doesn’t carry over into the AU!Reverse the way Edd’s intelligence does. But my dear friend PassiveExplorer suggested something to do with his bike, since he loves that darn bike in canon, and that’s where I decided to go with the wheel. It works because in the canon verse it can stand for his bike, but also for motion in general, which would be his talent considering his jock status. In AU!Reverse, it can still mean motion, but in a more technological kind of way, since he’s into tinkering and robotics. Or it could still be for his bike, I don’t know if Asphy’s keeping the bike, but I guess that works too.
Oh, and as to one of the slight differences between the Edds, I decided to further differentiate them by having Regular Edd’s sock hat go over his horn, while Reverse Edd’s has a hole for his horn to go through. I think it makes Regular Edd look more unassuming and Reverse Edd more douchey.
…And yes, I do plan on drawing ponified Nat, as well.
