/art/-/rp/ holiday contest! !!Applejack 1752[View All]

Welcome to a special holiday contest for all artists, roleplayers and anyone who has an OC!

Here's how it'll work: between now and January 1, RPers and OCs may post their characters in this thread (pics or descriptions or both). Anytime between then and January 3, artists may draw art pieces of any of the posted characters (multiples, if they want to submit multiple entries.) We'll try to get art pieces for as many of the posted characters as we can.

After January 3, we'll pick 3 winners - not necessarily the most amazing images, but the ones that really put great effort and captured the characters - and each of the winners will receive any Steam game(s) of their choice of $15 (any game, combination of games or items.) This should coincide nicely with the Steam holiday event as well, not to mention the great growth of the /rp/ community we've been so happy to see. Artists will get a nice contest and chance to win prizes, and roleplayers will get a chance to get free art of their characters!

So let's get going - feel free to start posting your characters and letting everyone who might be interested know. =D

Thanks, bro

This is my "signature style" of drawing ponies that I usually post on my DeviantArt

I'm thinking I should do a couple in other styles too though…

File: 1357151040901.png (839.04 KB, 1201x925, hashbrown.png)

I have no talent, but this is my little OC pony. Her name is Hashbrown and I made her on February 20th, 2011. Her special talent is cooking and she works at the restaurant where Spike and Twilight ate during Ticket Master. She's selfconcious about her color cause she was mocked as a foal for not being as colorful as the other foals.

File: 1357153642268.png (118.79 KB, 1300x1067, i really dont like whats below…)

I guess hes not pretty well known
But this is Raie Tempasta, my primary OC by now
Its kinda hard to describe him sometimes, but the most defining trait about him is: Carefree and relaxed
He likes relaxing and chilling
When he was young, he had to be taken care of by his father, and work for him under his pasta shop, tending their wheat fields, usually cutting the wheat with his farming scythe, which helped him practice
As he grew up, he got a fascination with gears and music, the cooler thing at the time and him having an obsession over being considered cool, and he based his magic through his gear work and music, using it to play a Lyre he would always carry
Well the turning point in his background is when he was old enough to leave to a musical academy for his magic, he heard his dad talking that Raie would be forced to take over the pasta shop
Scared about this and unable to face responsible like this, he ran away, fleeing Ponyville and running, taking his lyre and a few gears to work on
He then started playing his musical gears and fixing the towns problems, more so throug htheir watchs and clocks, and throughout the towns he visited, as the number he visited grew, he eventualy would be called the Bard of Time
He eventually returned to ponyville years later, realizing on his journey he needed to make it up to his father, and currently is working in his pasta to make up for lost time without his father, and practicing and correcting the towns watchs and clocks and playing a tune every so often
The black shades…
Well theyre there cause he has a rare eye color, a very light blue hue, which requires him to wear tinted shades or else he'd damage them in the light.
And why do they look so Edgy?
His obsession with being cool

His cutie mark is a Gear with a key hole, and basically looks like the pic

Sweet Merciful Celestia!


Thank you, Spirit Shine! Very classy. Brilliant work!

Sparx Emberflame 2206

Well as far as I can see many hates alicorn OC's. :( I don't hate alicorn OC's why would I? But considering the response I got of mine >>2098 and others on diffrent site's. That's the conclution I draw.

Dusty Page !Nzixts.png 2207

It's less a "hate" and more the fact that they're generally either blatant lorerape or sues. The show does establish, after all, that they're very rare. It's definitely good to avoid even a character that LOOKS like an alicorn for your first OC; one that has the racial abilities of more than one type of pony will draw the same sort of flak (e.g. a unicorn that can fly under his own power, by any means, magical or no, or an Earth pony that uses magic in some way).

It's possible to write a good alicorn OC. It's NOT possible to do it with your first OC, not without a lot of retconning later. I'm sure there are OC advice threads on /rp/; there were on Ponychan's anyways. And if you can't seem to find one, I'll be glad to look for you. They can probably tell you a lot more specifically and analytically how Sparx could be improved as a character.

Sparx Emberflame 2251

Thanks a lot for replying to that!
I'll be sure to check that out.

I had'nt really thought him through completly even though I tired to make atleast an acceptable story for him. I have an idea of switching his race to a dragon. (I've always loved dragons) This way I can change some backstory and also use him as an OC for other thing then MLP.
