#Traditional #Digital #Comics #OCs #Taking requests

*Ahem* music first:

Anyway, I am working on a major comic series and I had an interesting idea, recruiting YOUR OC's to appear in my series. Now here are some ground rules,

1: No changelings
2: No Alicorns
3: No hybrids

In addition to that I will need a picture of your OC and a written dossier of your OC in this format:

Cutie Mark:
Political Affiliation:

And I will need brief bio of your OC as well.

(Most likely your OC is Equestrian so that will be the set default for residency and "Monarchist" will be the default political affiliation as well.)

Remember I cannot guarantee your OC will have a significant role in my series and some can be rejected on the grounds of being poorly designed, poorly developed, and missing significant data. I cannot guarantee that your OC will have a speaking role as well. If your OC is selected, I will make a profile drawing of said OC and post it in this thread or my concept art thread here:

Now /art/ lets see what you got.
Unspoiler all text  • Expand all images  • Reveal spoilers
>> No. 123039
Also I WILL NOT take credit for creating your OC and if possible credit will be directed towards your name or alias if you wish. And when filling out the dossier if there is any missing info on your OC just leave it blank. But I still need a short bio.
>> No. 123040
I have a full character profile written up for my OC. Would you like me to send you a link? This could work for a future plan I have for a story I'm planning.
>> No. 123041
As you wish. I would prefer that information in the format I outlined but if that data is already applicable then there shouldn't be a problem.
>> No. 123042
And by political affiliation do you mean like the Solar Empire and NLR?
>> No. 123043
Leave it as monarchist for now (show canon). I'm building profiles for my OC's as well and many of them are Socialist and this is my way of keeping the dossiers organized.

>> No. 123054
No, I have never heard of that. I suppose a brief explanation of the upcoming crisis in Equestria is in order.

There is a powerful technologically advanced nation lead by a former student of princess Celestia that vanished without a trace years ago is threatening to invade Equestria with weapons of incalculable destructive capacities. They are also threatening to KILL princess Celestia and Princess Luna in the process. They also claim to have technologies that render the Elements of Harmony useless...

And before all this happens an ancient prophecy of a "New Hero" born from a falling star on the dawn of the rising sun will emerge. This "New Hero" is the chosen offspring of heaven that will wield a powerful weapon against the profane and malevolent forces that threaten peace, freedom, and the sanctity of life itself. That weapon is the lost Element of Harmony, the “Element of Valor”.

My thread here has some samples of my designs for my upcoming series:

Interesting, didn't notice this until now. Then again, I mostly stick to oat.

Name: Baggie Pack
Age: 22-ish
Gender: Mare
Race: Earth Pony
Cutie Mark: A yellow luggage suitcase in front of a blue one
Residency: Los Pegasus
Political Affiliation: Mostly Neutral/ Monarchist

Works at the train station delivering luggage. Loves chatting with tourists while delivering, and has a well rounded knowledge of all of Equestria thanks to hearing about it from all over. Has also developed a love of traveling thanks to her this, and is stronger than she looks thanks to carrying around heavy luggage all day.

Fudge it, I'll toss one in anyway. Just because I can't art doesn't mean I'm talentless. True, doesn't make me stand out from the crowd much either, but I'd feel bad if I gave up just for that.

Name: Data Stream
Age: 26
Gender: Male
Race: Unicorn
Cutie Mark: Image cutie mark is just a placeholder, finding clipart of an old paper-puncher computer (like Twilight used in Feeling Pinkie Keen) was practically impossible
Residency: Drifter, often gets run out of towns, grew up in Manehatten
Political Affiliation: Capitalist

Data Stream is a rumor mill, he gets info on ponies, like embarrassing secrets, and sells it to the highest bidder. He'll act like your best friend to your face to gain your trust, but secretly sell all he learns behind your back. He'll even turn friends against each other in order profit from both, being sort of a middleman for the two. He wasn't always this way, just a friendly guy that had a knack for earning others trust (His special talent of being a minor empath being a huge boon to this knack) but fell into the wrong crowd from a young age, and now he does what he does almost instinctively, sometimes regretting the decisions he makes when he turns in for the night, knowing he's slowly painting himself into a corner.

This OC would make a good spy or traitor. He seems like too much of a capitalist to be a Socialist though if all he cares about is profiteering. So far there are relevant scenarios within the plot in which I have selected ponies on this thread so far. I'll approve yours for now on the grounds there is significant potential for this OC.
>> No. 123069
Well, profiteering isn't all he cares about, it's more of a habit at this point, however you're right I did have a bit of a brain fart. Politics is not my strong point, and I don't look into them much. Capitalist is far more fitting.

Also everypony, I have neglected to inform you all that I have spoken to Equestria daily about my upcoming series after sending in some renderings back in March and they are interested in hosting my series. Real-life stuff has gotten into the way and because character, vehicle, and setting developments take so long its now May and I still dont have panels in. However there is a chance that a very large audience will see your OC in my upcoming series. No promises though.

I know, its not about getting famous for me either. What I am doing is straight from the heart and I feel I am going to give the fans something great. Something that will hopefully restore their faith in the series. I can't tell you how glad I am that you ponies decided to join the Red Army. (Metaphor for being part of the project.)

Fine, just give her a new hair cut or something. Just wiping out my OC for being a "tacky recolor" is a tad unfair, but if you want to think that way, sure.

Music of the day:

Its been a long and hot day where I live, I couldn't get much work done. Btw Infernal Dalek your OC is next. I started working on yours and you are going to love it. Just check with my concept art thread tomorrow morning and I should have it. Also with your OC it looks like her hair is parted to the side in some of the other pics however the first pic you sent its kinda spikey and meets at an end point like RD. Which is correct?

Sorry for the delayed response. I am going to need some time to think about this subject too. As I don't have anything written for a creative pony.

So I have permission to give her a new hair cut Nerd pony? Because I thought about it and I WANT HER IN. I have developed a scenario for this pony and even a speaking role!

I hope the other ponies don't feel jelous but I want to do another drawing of Baggie Pack waiting at a station platform for an incoming passenger train.

As for that passenger car, the reason why I drew it because I was thinking of giving her a home made out of a decomissioned passenger car like the one in the drawing. I thought that would be cool.

I have 2 OC's. As you can see here... playing ping pong and everything :D

Right. If you can't take both you can just choose. But here is ruley things:

Name: Candy Cane (Black/red one)
Age: 21
Gender: Female
Race: Earth Pony
Cutie Mark: A candy cane (How creative) but it's black and red instead of white and red (Creativeness overflowing)
Residency: Ponyvillie
Political Affiliation: Hm?

She is a pretty normal pony. Down to earth and friendly. Also, she is bi-sexual and currently dating my other OC (Oops)

Now, the white one!

Name: Heart String
Age: 20
Gender: Female
Race: Pegasus
Cutie Mark: A blue lightning with some ice crystals across
Residency: Ponyvillie

She is more out-going and not afraid to speak up. Kinda like Rainbow Dash. She is not bi-sexual, she is in fact lesbian. (Buck me right?)

So I can imagine you don't want my OC's but you know... I would be happy if you chose them. (Or one of them) Thank you :)
>> No. 123179
Well I may be old fashioned but I don't have a problem with same sex couple ponies. I think most of us around here are first world 21st century ponies here. I'll consider them both but I'll have to find something for them. Also I am asking for any additional images you have of these ponies if you please.

And if they are selected (they probably will) their relationship will be as obvious as Lyra and Bon Bon. Might see cuddling here and there but thats about it. Trying to keep things PG. (Probably PG-13 because of the coming invasion.)

Pack a lunch this is a long post:

>>123212 You are welcome Data Stream, I don't mind if anyone uses pony creator. But I do mind if I have multiple OC's that are similar in design. Which reminds me anon >>123225 I have a similar OC I approved and we may need to talk about this one. But you will all find I can be fair and just. As I was with Nerdpony when I felt Four Block was too similar to RD. But I am working on Four Block now and you will all be impressed. Also, if I cant find a specific role for submitted OC's I am willing to negotiate within those parameters as well.

As for everyones OC's in general and even established characters, what I am doing is not going to make them break character. For example Twilight and Applejack are not really going to fly around a gunship and Pinkie Pie isnt going to pick up a rocket launcher and start busting tanks. As cool as it sounds its not the way those characters would deal with those problems should they arise. And those weapon systems I have designed and/or currently in development serve specific plot functions and arent necessarily the focus of my vision. Even though a lot of what I am trying to do would not be executed in the show nor within the canon comics I felt it would be interesting to take mlp to grittier settings, intoduce dangerous new enemies, and catastrophic problems far more challenging to the mane six that have yet to be seen within the shows canon (Sombra, Discord, and Nightmare Moon are trivial compared to these new enemies and their leader) and use their given abilities to overcome those problems.

Another issue that will be difficult to overcome is I am about to introduce a new main character. This has been a challenge for the past few months because I am deathly afraid of the negative reception I might receive because of the Sunset Shimmer fiasco. But If I can "generate" this character properly, I hope the fandom will accept his/her presence within the mlp realm. The primary reason for introducing this new character because like I said, there are going to be some extreme circumstances within my plans that call for this "new character" and his/her skillsets and abilities. (This character will be much more than what I have let on so far.) And unlike Sunset Shimmer or the Twilicorn scandal, my plans are not financially motivated. This gives me a unique opportunity to think outside of the box. As for how this new character will develop relationships with established characters, about half of my series will deal with just that in the beginning because I feel it takes more than 40 minutes to gain someones trust and become friends. (referring to the shows pilot episode part 1+2) This way the readers will hopefully better understand his/her presence and I can properly explain why this upcoming character was chosen for their world. And your OC's will help set the stage for some of the situations I have planned for this new main character and the mane six.

Although my upcoming series may or may not be featured on Equestria Daily or receive postive reviews, I still would like to thank everyone for participating in my endeavors and submitting your OC's for this project. I suppose the reason for the lengthly post was to clear the air as to what I am doing and express how your participation is crucial to this new story. And with that I would like to announce I am currently working on some prototype panels and I will gladly share them some time this coming week. I will continue to accept submissions for OC's for the rest of the month and possibly through June.

Great to know the basic outline of what you are doing. I hope that the fandom enjoys what you do, I think it would be okay to add a new antagonist, because you're not from Hasbro and stuff. I'm really proud for my OC to be a part of this project. In fact it has given me motivation to continue writing Leo's fanfics (I decided to write other stuff for a while)

Its not so much developing a new antagonist that is bothering me so, its developing a new main character that has proven to be very difficult because everyone knows and loves the current mane six (The Twilicorn thing is still a matter of conflict) and dropping a potential interloper in can be inherently dangerous if my writing isn't up to standards. As for the primary antagonist, I have some details on that specific character I have yet to release but I know for a fact everyone is going to despise him as a villain, hopefully not as a character.

Yes. It is unusal to have pony with such a name and I cant think of a role for such a subject. The others have useful talents and abilities that are essential to my designs, and with all due respect some of them are just downright adorable in my opinion (Cough! BAGGIE PACK cough! LEO HEARTSHIP cough!) However like I said in an earlier post, I can be fair and just. If you are willing to cooperate with me, I can help you design a new pony that would be useful and appropriate for my enterprise. Just tell me what you want within reason and I will make it so.

Despite his appearance, Badly Drawn Unicorn is a wise and powerful unicorn who helped the ponies escape their old nations during a great war, and helped found Equestria. He has a battleship known as the U.S.S. DawnBringer, and has virtually limitless wisdom.

Sorry but I cannot accept this subject because he is... well...badly drawn. I don't have much to work with to begin with and although I have use for a naval pony, as far as I know those types of weapons platforms where not used during the pony unification wars within the shows canon. My designs rely on the shows canon history and I can't change much of that except add some details. Thank you for your submission and have a nice day.

It'll be fun to serve along side you, if at least from a 3rd pony perspective from his writing.

Also I never got to tell you, Congratulations! And since Four Block likes Tetris: (These are the real Tetris songs they used to make for the game)

You do? Oh that makes me so happy! :D Anyway what I had in mind for Four Block was the Ponyville arcade just received a shipment of mysterious arcade machines made by the same "organization"that made the original tetris machines. And the new mysterious arcade machines cause the players to have psychotic episodes and Four Block is immune. She is going to help figure out how and why the new arcade machines are causing ponies to go crazy. Trust me there are more details but I don't want to spoil the surprise. By the way I kinda got the idea from the Polybius urban legend.

This looks really nice, you've managed to keep Data Stream fairly in character from what little I gave you. He's friendly in order to get information, but tends to stick to the background unless it's absolutely necessary to make his presence known.

I agree with the others, you did a pretty good job on the background. Seeing all these ponies together makes me intrigued for the final product.

When I was a colt I used to go up into the hills just to watch the pumps go up and down. And you're right, I stuck a rig in in one of my concept art pieces.

As for New Zealand, heck Peter Jackson had the right idea to use it for his designs. I will do the same because although I havn't gone to that point yet, but there are going to be some new settings and new lands. One in particular called "Pendulum Valley".

I'm already away from my computer, so i'll just put this down for now and upload images tomorrow morning.

Name: Eddie
Age: 15-16
Gender: M
Race: Earth Pony
Cutie Mark: Three Red Balloons
Residency: Equestria
Political affiliation: Monarchy

Bio: Eddie was raised to value life and all its preciousness. He finds new friends and cares greatly for them, staying as loyal to them as he can. He is very playful, much like a child.

However, his care for his few close friends leads him to worry more often than not, and his playfulness and loyalty are hard to bring out; his trust has been toyed with before

TL;DR. Eddie loves his friends but is an anxiety-driven worry-wort.

Well until I see some images I'll let you know what I think of this OC. I can tell you right away the cutie mark is going to be a problem because of Pinkie Pie. But when the time comes I suppose I can arrange something.
>> No. 123538
Ah man, the names were so weird, I can't recall what they were named xD

I was there before I became a brony, so if I did meet anyone, I wouldn't have noticed. We were on the road for the first 2 months in this traveling van. The last 2 months we were staying in a house. And who would have guessed it; there were sheeps all over. We couldn't leave the house without stepping in sheep poo >.<

A cow also gave birth close by, to where we were staying, but the calf got stuck in a fence so we had to free it. Good times.

Just an update, A friend of mine was in town this weekend and I was a bit distracted for the most part. But tomorrow for sure I will have that next piece of concept art in even if it kills me. After that is finished I will focus more on submissions and approving others. However I will be working on concept art pieces of my own in between submissions. I will start releasing paintings as well.

As for when I will stop taking submissions I still havn't decided on the 15th of this month or the 30th. Time is running out and I have to get the ball rolling well before season 4 of the actual show airs.

If anyone has anymore submissions please dont hesitate to send them in. Again I dont mind if you use pony creator as long as they arent too similar to notable characters within the show or similar to approved OC's

Thanks again for contributing to my project and I look forward to drawing teh ponies again!

Hey, btw... I don't know if you need this or anything, but I got some information about my OC's which you can use... for.. whatever.

Like Heart String (the white) is good at building and repearing stuff. Like a mechanic.

Candy Cane is good at baking. Especially sweets. (What a skill!)

I don't know if you want to use any of that, but there you go :)

That info is helpful. Thanks for sharing that.

Reminds me, I havn't thought of anything for Candy Cane yet (Perhaps a job at another bakery? :S) but how would Heart String like a job at this facility I designed?

Flexible hours, steady work, great benefits, and they even have dental! :D

I need mechanics to fix the locomotives and other crazy inventions being cooked up in there. (You will see why later)
>> No. 123633
If coffee is provided, she'll take it! :)
Beatiful designs by the way. Can't wait to see more of it.

And everypony needs sweets once in a while, you know.
You can of course think of something else for Candy Cane if you want. She's an "all around" pony :)
>> No. 123634

Of course we have coffee! :D We even have a water cooler so our employees have an area to conduct awkward conversations and mindless co-worker small talk. :S

And does Candy Cane have experience with Donuts? I have something in mind that pertains to that particular confection... Mmm... Donuts... *Homer Simpson drool*

As for more concept art. I really wish real-life stuff would stop getting in the way... >:[
>> No. 123636
Oh cool. Then we can stand around and make fun of the boss!... You're not the boss right?..

And sure she can bake donuts. She can even put the jelly inside em'.. without magic! :o

Fortunately you got nothing but time. I hope... You're not like.. 90 or something, right?
>> No. 123637
Naa I wouldn't be the boss. This new character I am developing will be and you can make fun of him/her all you want for being an accident prone crackpot when the time comes. xD

And if I was 90, I'm pretty sure I would be too busy talking about how bad the depression was, WWII, complaining about damn kids on my lawn/inflation, eating grapefruit and trying to not-die in general.

The funny thing is I kinda already do some of that stuff and my family likes to poke fun of me for it. :S

And yeah I have time I just have to let Real-life stuff run its course first. I just hope I can get things moving before season 4 starts. I have to beat the writers to anything they can dish out. (Even though they would most likely NOT think of Pseudo-Soviet technologically advanced collectivist mean invader bullies and world consuming entities)

I know but... It was going to be one of those really cool looking 1940's style joints with a giant neon-lit donut sign and a jukebox you have to hit in order to get it to work and it would play Andrews Sisters and Cab Calloway songs like "Civilization" and "Minne the Moocher". *Sniff* And the best part was Candy Cane was going to wear those folded hats I like so much!

I've been wanting to post a few of my OCs for consideration, but I was a little apprehensive... I might as well throw them in for consideration while I still can, though!

Name: Shelly Shores
Age: Young Adult Mare
Gender: F
Race: Earth Pony
Residency: Horseshoe Bay (She lives at a beach, so I came up with a name. An unnamed beach on the shores of Equestria otherwise.)
Political Affiliation: Democracy? (She's very free spirited, so I suppose this. Never thought of it... Monarchy if she does, indeed live in Equestria.)

"Shelly loves walking on the beach at low tide gathering the prettiest sea shells and sea glass. She has a real knack for it! Despite being of fine intelligence, she can be airy and absent minded sometimes, especially when she's relaxing on the shore."

Darn. Forgot cutie mark. Well, you can see it, it's three different pastel colored shells: one pink, one yellow, and blue.

Only other one I'll throw in, most likely. But she has a lot of small role/BG pony potential.

Age: Young Mare/Young Adult Mare/Adult Mare
Gender: F
Race: Earth Pony

Boom! Boom! Access approved for both! Welcome to the red army Equine Palette. Congratulations and thanks for your submissions! Shelly just gave me an idea for a whole new setting and I had to have her. Purple Pansy lives in Ponyville so I can find something easily for her.

Check with this thread for updates daily because theres always something going on in the House of Sovereign. :D And take a peek with my concept art to get an idea of whats up with this whole dealio.

I gave it some thought and due to time constraints I decided to discontinue accepting submissions by 6/15/13 12:00 AM Pacific Standard Time.

Patachu: Yo dawg I hear you like your CM on your CM on your CM... Yeah a cutiemark of oneself is going to be a problem. And I have yet to think of a role for Komatsu. Plus it would be nice if I had a bio.

Oh, why not. I've been debating this off-and-on for a while now, only now I have a couple of potential OC's to go with.

So here, have a brother-sister* combo:

Name: Sky Ribbon
Age: 19
Gender: Female
Race: Pegasus
Cutie Mark: Cloud with a ribbon coiled around it
Residency: Equestria
Political Affiliation: Monarchist
Bio: Born in Cloudsdale, she never set hoof on the surface until she was 12. But when she finally did, she was amazed at the difference between the bland white clouds and the sheer color and spectacular beauty of the land around her. Since then, she's never wanted to live in a cloud city again, preferring to use her talents in cloud/weather management to help preserve the natural world around her.

Name: Criss Cross
Age: 19
Gender: Male
Race: Batpony/Bat Pegasus
Cutie Mark: A horseshoe puzzle
Residency: Equestria
Political Affiliation: Monarchist
Bio: Adopted* at an young age, he never seemed to question his parents or where he came from. He just wanted to get by through life unnoticed and undisturbed so he could be left to his true love: puzzle solving. Logic puzzles, math puzzles, crosswords and more, he loves to practice his brain to think of new, creative solutions. As such, he works making crossword puzzles for newspapers.

*Criss Cross is Sky's adopted brother. His real parents, though no one knows this, were simply a pair of Luna's guards that couldn't properly take care of a child due to the stress of their jobs.

I'm open to discussion on details, given this is your thing.
>> No. 123947

Woooooaaaaaaaah. A cutie curly cue! I don't plan on spending much time in Manehattan (Well it will be the site of a major naval battle.) I'll see what I can do, in the mean time check out my concept art thread to see whats up with this whole thing.

Name: Willy Nilly
Age: 20
Gender: Male
Race: Pegasus
Cutie Mark: Clockwork canary
Residency: Equestrian
Political Affiliation: Monarchist

Bio: Raised on the surface by an Earth Pony and a Pegasus with his older brother, he never got a taste for the breeze running through his feathers until he was about 10. His first time out flying there was a freak lightning storm. His mother flew up, narrowly shielding him from the brunt of a strike which left her wings permanently paralyzed and his wings to become extremely sensitive. Tending to his mother after the incident tirelessly made him realize his special talent for caretaking and nurturing. After this he's rarely been able to stay in flight very long, but tries to remain chipper and lighthearted despite this, always wanting to keep his friends happy. Often times seen goofing off and eating ice cream.
>> No. 123957
What didn't we see? I'm sure Leo has it on film.
>> No. 123958
So these are in? If so, awesome.

Also, I just wanna add a little bit of info, just in case, for the two of them:

Sky Ribbon went a little too far once in her love of 'nature', and had something of an all-natural hippyish phase. Since then, she hasn't quite dropped all of the animalistic habits she developed, but she tries to catch herself. This includes her tendency to act wildly and on impulse.

By contrast, Criss Cross is very quiet and introverted, preferring the company of a book to most other ponies. He's not afraid to talk to others, but he'd rather not have to.
>> No. 123959

Also, this rule applies to everypony. Please don't just dump your OC's on this thread and never check in from time to time.

I would like to thank everypony for their submissions and I look forward including all these wonderful OC's in my series. Although I cant promise all these OC's will have significant roles but rest assured each OC will have meaningful contributions to the overall plot. I can't tell you all how thankful I am to have you all part of a brand new adventure that will lead to new lands, new friends, and of course dangerous new enemies. All of which are of a caliber never seen nor attempted before that I intend to bring to the MLP world. Check with my concept art thread for updates or to just mingle if you like.

Welcome to the House of Sovereign.
