This site doesn't like my photo links so I can't show ya but I went through 2 different ponysonas....and now I have over 50 story ocs they aren't me but they are characters I own I love writing pony stories.
My first ponysona was stardust. She had palimino fur matching my skin color brown hair matching mine wore pink bows on her pigtails and tail matching my style and had blue eyes...just like mine I rl. Oh and silver hooves but thats to match a real horse. She was and earth pony and aside from being a draft breed because I connect with drafts was as boring as they come. A young adult blank flank who felt she would never get her cutiemark i had a blog for her and everything but she was super boring.
I did a design trade with a nice brony on Tumblr, they are a cat, if you know them you know exactly who I mean lol they sign thier art "a cat" we each ended up drawing blue Pegasus for each other. The one they made me was this light blue foal with white blanket appaloosa markings and white ears. The eyes were covered by a deep blue forelock. The mane amd tail were short and i couldnt tell the gender. I made her a 12 year old filly gave her emerald green eyes and wrote her into a story i hacent officially wrotten out of my mind yet besides sending piles of detail to my writing partner lol. I ended up putting way to much of myself into her and when i realized this i made her my new ponysona. Thats sapphire or saphy the filly in my icon. I later added the leg markings. Cause cute.

I could tell you tons about my story characters too....I should make them a forum they answer questions on my fa account.

Bees love yellow flowers, or maybe do a violet to match her eyeshadow!

Thanks Tailrustedleaf!  :frolic: I was thinking that, but when I drew her eyeshadow originally it was for a witchy theme more than a 'her' thing. My favourite colour is red and I love red against bright, pigmented oranges and golds. I might try a lotus-ish design and try add the bee into it.

I love the bee symbol! The colours are also really neat and I think it was a great idea to make her a sparkly pony, you don't really see those as personas so it's something unique! And the sparkle effect looks great with the dark red.

Thanks Griffin!  :lovey: I want to perfect that sparkle effect but I am liking my ponysona reflecting Sparkle Ponies - theyre just too sweet!

My newest design but still unhappy as usual  :silly:

My second attempt. Hopefully getting better.





My makeshift ponysona sheet. Not sure I'm super sold on my design but its a good start!




Have you tried the shine tool on paint tool sai?
Making her seethrough (turn down the opacity on the fur color layers) could help too


Thanks Saphy! I dont have paint tool sai unfortunately! I'll see what I can do though.

Wow, I really like how your persona turned out (so far)! :D Her symbol/ cutie mark looks awesome.

My OC has had a lot of designs. And after a couple of years, I'm sort of tempted to change her design again... maybe  :lookround: I have some other OC's floating around too. I really need to draw them more often :P

This is her most recent design (a good couple of years old  :satisfied:) She's has the same name as my screen name



Thanks Moonbreeze! I want to see if I can incorporate more purple and gold without it looking bad but so far the red on red is working. I really like your ponysona! Shes so sweet looking! And nice art.

Witch, I really like you OC (Original character) now, do you mind if I draw her ? I'm only able to draw on the weekends and I feel inspired with your pony. ^^

Of course you can RoseNoire!  :lovey:

Thanks Saphy! I see what you did there! Now it looks like her cutiemark is actually on her!
Oh hmm I havent ever done an art trade. I'm a commission artist but havent ever done ponies either! I guess I might be up for a trade sometime! I want to make a christmassy adoptable as a way to meet everyones ponysonas too.

I think this is my final design! I hope anyway!

Yay, thanks Witch, that's so sweet of you. I can't wait to get my hands back to my tablet this evening. :frolic:

Rough at first glance, but actually kind, helpful and supportive.

Aaah I love, love, love how your ponysona is turning out! (and your style is lovely!)

I have a ponysona, too, but we don't really click anymore ^^' I don't know what it is, or what I should do but yeah xD I'm sort of thinking I should make a new one, but I just have no idea where to start (: Here she is, tho, her name is Neko. (not 100% fond of the name either anymore xD ugh. poor pony) I've tried redesigning her in the past, but nothing has really felt right. Except for when she went from pegasus to earth pony. That's stuck xD


Maybe I should make a thread, too, you've gotten some great input in this one!

No worries RoseNoire! Feel free to add me as a buddy or message me when you give it a go!  :lovey:

I really like Neko! But I do understand that as we change so do our tastes. Why dont you give another ponysona a go? I super support making a thread if it helps give good input and I'm so glad people have commented and helped out.

I updated my first artwork too. I might update my profile image too.




Shaiyeh whats your ideal ponysona? What sort of pony comes to mind now that you might have outgrown Neko?
