Pippywish is a cute little pony who was born out of crowd of lazy OCs I made for a promotional poster a couple of weeks back. To be totally frank, I fell in love with her design almost as soon as I had sketched her lines down, and from there I spent maybe an hour two than I should've making her look cute.
During secret previews with HeyLasFas - the crazy one-man-band that produced "Destiny: A Tale of Unicorn Wings", he also noticed the pony and pretty made it a mini-mission of his to share her with the Tumblr crowd. There's a handful of dedicated fans out there, which is quite an achievement for a pony who was created just to fill a space - and is still yet to have a backstory assembled.
This drawing came about while I was in LasFas' livestream, and I finished it shortly after the stream ended. A lot of my newer style choices are present here, such as the updated eye designs and the muzzle shape, as well as a few details I'm thinking of making unique traits to Pippywish's design as I begin to give unique builds to the ponies I draw. She's noticeably shorter than the 'average' height i make my ponies, and her hooves are also a little wider than typical proportions. I'm going to keep experimenting in future artwork and hopefully learn to give everypony a unique build (or at least Fluttershy, since she's usually the only pony I draw hehe).
This year is going to be lovely for artwork from me, I can feel it.
Great work, but what's with the wavelength in her eyes?
It's a part of my style. The wavelengths are inspired by heart rate graphs (EKG), but do not represent the character's heartbeats. Instead, the heart rate specular on the eyes actually represents their emotional state. So depending on the emotion and mood, a pony can have a very different wavelength than another - or no wavelength at all if they're incredibly depressed).
I really like her EVERYTHING
I really like her mane.
