Glimmer Wing: Character Design

Glimmer is wife to Steel Hooves and mother of Infinite Heart. 

She is a former changeling commander in Queen Chrysalis' hive, and was once called "The Pink Terror of the Hives" due to the fact that she was considered to be one of the deadliest and fiercest changelings amongst any hive; 'Pink' because of her unusual eye color amongst changelings. She was once one of Queen Chrysalis' most trusted soldiers, but after being healed by and spending time with a unicorn guard named Steel Hooves she realized everything she had been taught about ponies was a lie, and she decided then to desert her hive. All other changelings believe her to be dead, having died a great death in a battle. 

Glimmer Wing designed her own pony form, taking different aspects of different ponies and combining them into one, like her hooves that she copied from Steel. She even designed her own cutie, which is a mortar with a pestle and herb in it. Growing up in dangerous forests and desert lands Glimmer learned what plants could heal, which she applies to her job as an herbalist. She decided to help and heal ponies, a big change from hunting and preying on them. The only love she takes is the love that Steel and Infinite give her.

I really wanted to give her a slight "mom" look, so I added a scrunchy to her design and a little bit of a pony tail, which I just fell in love with. To me really captures her mom essence, which is something Glimmer is really proud of since normal female changelings are not allowed to have children. That is part of the reason as to why she is so protective of Infinite.
I also decided to go with the comic style armor than the show armor, which is my choice of the green armor, it complimented Glimmer's pink eyes better, and pink eyes were going to happen from the get-go no matter what. I also prefer the armor style, it is somewhat more elegant in my opinion and that really helps to capture Glimmer Wing's personality.

Glimmer Wing will be co-starring in the first couple chapters of my story, "Learning to Be Infinite."

Please leave me some thoughts and let me know what you think! :)

Steel Hooves and Inifite Heart are the only ones who know she's a Changeling, right?

It might be far better to keep it that way, for the time being.

For most of her life so far, yes. :)

It's actually going to be posted this weekend(basically done with Ch 1-3). I work at a camp, and had to basically devote myself to my kids. This is my last week of work so yay for free time again! Cause that = Art and Writing. 

Thanks for asking!
