I’ve been semi-obsessed with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic for a while now THANKS TO A CERTAIN SOMEONE, so when I saw this pony creator on Beth Revis’s blog, I didn’t have much choice but to join in.
So, yeah, here’s three of the main characters of my current WIP, BLINK:
I gave her a snowflake as a cutie mark partially because
she’s speshul the place her family is from is a pretty darned cold place; the snowflake signifies home. It’s also fragile but hardy, matching Amara to a T. She gets neither a horn nor wings; she’s trapped where she is. The pose is because she’s trying to break free anyway.
Nolan gets wings and a planet as a cutie mark, signifying how he moves between worlds. He’s also troubled and searching for himself, hence the pose. With some fiddling, I managed to alter his hind leg enough to make it look like his foot has been amputated (though it’s the wrong leg and I’m too lazy to flip the picture right now).
Why is she smiling? Because she looks adorable that way, is why.
… Also Amara and Nolan threatened to make this a depressed!pony blog, which is just wrong. Smiling pony! Happy pony! Yay ponies!
(Uh, not that Amara and Nolan don’t have reasons to be depressed. BRB, need to write and pile on the hurt some more.)
