The Background Mane 6 Elements of Harmony by jaybugjimmies The Background Mane 6 Elements of Harmony by jaybugjimmies
Here's the entire group. :) This picture inspired by a group vector of the Mane 6 with the elements done by ~Ryoki-Fureaokibi.

I can already hear the protests, heh, so I'll address 'em now:
(1) Yeah, I have only 1 pegasus and 3 Earth ponies here, so there isn't a perfect race balance. The alternative was to boot Dr. Whooves and stick Raindrops in here, but Rainy is nowhere near as popular a BG pony.
(2) Derpy has the Big Crown Thingy, yet she isn't a unicorn? Well, we don't know how the magic for the Elements of Harmony works, maybe it doesn't even require a unicorn to wield it. *shrug* Also, muffins are magic, so that should be a good enough explanation on its own. ;)

As to the names of the respective elements, feel free to think some up. Here are my suggestions:

Dr. Whooves/Time Turner: Compassion
Lyra Heartstrings: Melody
Derpy Hooves/Ditzy Doo: Joy
Octavia: Integrity
Vinyl Scratch: Er . . . wubs?
Bon Bon: Sweetness

Feel free to leave your own ideas though!

Edit: Someone pointed out the colors were not 100% show-accurate. Colors tweaked/updated.

Nice! Though, y'know, I'll bet it must feel real awkward for Dr. Whooves, him being the only stallion in their group.

Magic = Science - Doctor
Generosity = Selflessness - Octavia
Honesty = Reliability - Bon bon
Laughter = Joy/Optimism - Derpy
Kindness = Forgiveness - Lyra
Loyalty = Persistence - Vinyl

Watch the 100th episode and you will understand why

These elements of harmony are probably strong enough to destroy buildin's , crash cars , trucks , planes , helicopters  , boats , overturn trains and more.

I don't know all that much about some of these characters. Haven't seen the 100th episode in full, just small bits. However, I did catch the Doctor Whooves part where him and Derpy are talking. And I think it'd be ironically cool if Whooves was the lead element. Yeah, him in a crown may be a bit odd, but...Just change up the look so it looks less like a tiara and more like a crown. Also, the interesting points why he'd be cool for the element of magic:
-He did say that there are some things that magic can't explain, and how science and math were the REAL magic. It'd make for an interesting new twist
-As I understand, earth ponies are the least in tuned with raw magic. To me, that just makes it all the more reason to make him that element. Shaking up the status quo and all that
-And again shaking up the status quo...He's the ONLY male pony in this group or the current element users.

Why is Ditzy's crown a muffin?? She doesn't even like muffins, it's what the fandom made her. She's the certified Mailmare, though.

I thought it was because her name came up as "Muffins" when the credits rolled in the episode "Last Roundup." That's where the meme of Derpy liking muffins came from.

I think the Doctor should have his own Elements, for ex. Elements of Time (Don't mind me, I'm bad at making good names), but Compassion? Yes, he is caring (Unless you count William Hartnell and Collin Baker), but it just doesn't match. (Also, Vinyl should have liveliness or energy.)
