I dunno about you, but I’m really excited about Hasbro’s new direction with their girls toy products. Collect them all!
Let’s take a moment
to bow our heads
we’ve lost our dear friend Pluto.
I know he was not large,
and 4.6 billion miles is far away
but we loved him.

Anyone who knows me may also know that I have a deep fascination and adoration of the blackness and vastness of space. In fact, I can barely write any fiction or create any character without space having some part in it. So space ponies like G1’s Milky Way here are definitely some of my favourites. They remind me that we - humans, animals, little plastic ponies - are all microscopic entities in a galaxy that expands further than we could ever imagine.
My biggest advice to anyone wanting to make a character, whether they’re an OC for a fanwork or for a completely original creation, is to experiment like crazy! Have fun! Struggle! Get annoyed! Get even!! But most importantly don’t let yourself hold you back. I used to hold myself back from things - “oh, I can’t draw that kind of art, I’m not good at it! My style is too different!" RUBBISH. Fight yourself! Wrestle your preconceptions about yourself and show them who’s the boss.
There are a lot of rules to character design, if you’d like to research it further - use of shapes, facial design, colour theory, different types of appeal - it’s a delicate science to create a truly memorable character. But making an OC just for fun? There’s only one rule, and the rule is GET ‘ER DONE YOURSELF!
These are really awful photos but basically it’s my little sister’s birthday tomorrow! And the moon horse is her favourite so I made her a surprise home-made card with two ponies who are also sisters. Happy Birthday little sis!
I’m also trying to make a custom toy of her oc pony hehe its haardd
Based on this post! Party Bus are the hot new music sensation sweeping Equestria. The Party Bus is coming, and everypony’s jumping!
I decided to forego character references for this picture and work solely with the toys as reference.
