Very first sketch concepts for Discord. Very loose, very rough. You can see here that I was trying to make his head a little more horse-like and less dragon-like. It didn't seem quite right to me yet so, since I was sick at the time and had a deadline, I asked my husband Craig for design advice. You can see his suggestion for the head and face on the top two Discords. My hero!

Further refinement by the character design team gave you the Discord in The Return of Harmony.

Sense Discord can do anything you will have to let know if he ever talks to you anytime you draw him! I love Discord!

Discord is my favourite character so, I wanted to ask a professional opinion: do you ship Discord x Fluttershy or Discord x Celestia?

It is so, so inspiring to see the first sketches for my favorite character in the entire show. I use this for reference all the time.

Nice to see how the design process starts. It gives me appreciation for the final product.

That is a cool sketch of Discord. The for legged pose is interesting. It reminds me of a oriental dragon. Unlike your other sketches, Discord made his debut in the second season, instead of the first. I am wondering when you stopped working on the show. Anyway I wish you well on your other projects. Good Luck!

Well, if it'd been Don Bluth instead of Flash, you might have gotten this for a final result.


But it's always neat seeing history in the making!

I think that the later seasons where the best. It doesn't mean I hate the earlier seasons.

Not exactly the most flattering thing to tell her... she was only involved in the earlier seasons.

Hey no offence to her. But to make it up the ealier seasons did have it charm.
