Faint Retinue



The First Contact War OC run gets another one from the Marem of the Equine I made a year ago.
I made #4 from a couple weeks ago in Marked Mare who was a favourite amongst them, although I always quite liked #1, maybe it's the freckles :P

One key aspect of all the OCs from the set is, they have no real known identity, no name, no job specifications, etc. That's something I've been wanting to keep to visual story telling here. One may almost assume that the Marem's looks may be deceiving, more dangerous or fierce than they may appear.

And oh gosh, I actually finished this, in one session. I kinda had some thoughts I might make this a two Saturday session piece, which would've been the smart choice, but I wanted to wait until detailing on the outer areas started. Then I just kept going, since those were decently manageable.

Inspired and looked at some historical paintings, assisting the overall style. But pony design and accompanying apparatus. Or well, just some armor and stuff lying around :P

Making this pose, with this shading, while trying to retain that physique and proportion 'from my usual style (with a bit from the reference too), can be fun tricky at times. I did take some liberties, though, to make the process easier. Thicken this, thin that, shorten here, lengthen there, etc.
She did also end up with a bit more visual... allure

Anyhow, hope y'all enjoy this little green mare! (I remember choosing these colours to challenge and make them work, just a bit, color variation to not get stuck with specific hues)
