Wanted - Fleur de Lys

Edit: For those wondering how this was made, here's a video tutorial I cooked up: www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYu6RO…

I couldn't just leave the crew unfinished.  The mane 6 are not alone in their quest and Rarity's friend and partner would not be left hanging.  Ever.

I wasn't sure who to pick at first but the lineup needed some variations in shape, height and size.  I didn't want to include Luna (Though I reeeeeally wanted) so I added Fleur.  Somehow it made things easier in terms of backstory and made her more beleivable overall.

She was a different challenge too.  But I think she came out quite smashing :)

---

A tall white unicorn, Fleur is Fancy Pant's wife.  It was her idea that her husband should invest in Rarity's fashion store as she saw potential in both her designs and the quality of her work.  It worked fantastically.  She accompanied Rarity to the opening of the latest Caroussel Boutique in Ponyville Docks and was awaiting her husband's return.

He sent her letters regularly but they got more and more dire as time went on.  He was on a business trip to assess if what he heard was true: Zebras were used as slave labor in cotton plantations and in the factories that reproduce Rarity's clothing lines.

His last letters saw him try and gain audience with the crown to expose this hainous act when he suspected he would be made a criminal by some very powerful ponies.

When guards came to arrest her and Rarity on the accounts of money laundering through their stores, she knew her husband had been arrested and was probably rotting in a cell.  Fluttershy and Applejack came to their help and Fleur vowed to get her love out of that prison and expose the truth.

Often mistaken for the captain due to her stature, she grew stronger as a figher as the investigations went on.  Her sharp and precise spellcasting made her a formidable sniper. While some stories talk about a bullseye at 10,000 hooves distance, which she neither confirms nor denies, putting a hole in the middle of a spinning golden bit usually shuts up most neigh-sayers.

I LOVE Fleur and you do her great justice.

She would deeply thank you for that sweet compliment :)  As do I ^^  Glad you like it :D

You are both welcome. Fleur makes a good sniper/gunner - delicate and deadly.
And there isn't enough Fleur in the fandom and in what there is she's far too often a trophy wife. Looking very much forward to seeing more from her :)

for the record, I LOVE that design of Fleur, and AJ...and the others. (heh, the fact that you made them want Fluttershy more DEAD than others is awesomely funny) but I wanna see Luna and Tia, if this is from the crown, what's LUNA'S part or Tia's part in this?!? are they to blame?!? or what?
(Also quick question, would that special tutorial of yours allow me to be able to make a wanted poster of my own OC?

Designing those clothes was indeed fun :)  Fleur's different body build made if interesting too :D

But as for the two sisters, I can't sell my story just yet now, can I?  It'd be spoilers :meow:
And the tutorial mainly shows how I made everything move, not how I drew them.  It's not a very long tutorial so if you feel it's not helping you, at least you would not have spent too much time watching it ^^;

darn it...I wanna know how you drew them...I don't care if it doesn't move...I just wanna do something like make a wanted poster of my OC (alicorn or Pegasus as I'm stuck between both mind you...) being the swordspony I like to be, akin to Roranoa Zoro/Zolo from One Piece...

They were hand-drawn, really.  made to look like a pony ^^;  I'd like to say I used magic but that's just not true <.<
ChaosZero102's avatar
I see...I'd still LOVE to try and make one of my own...

A love shanty fit for Heart and Hooves day for Fleur des Lys, "Badlands Away" (Parody of Lowlands Away


I dreamed a dream the other night
Badlands, badlands away me Fleur
My love he came, his skin so white
Badlands away


I dreamed my love was on my bed
Badlands, badlands away me Fleur
His muzzle frowned, teardrops he shed
Badlands away


He laid with me in my bedroom

Badlands, badlands away me Fleur
All nicely dressed, like some quaint groom
Badlands away


And gradually our bond enhance
Badlands, badlands away me Fleur
His blue blue eyes, my Fancy Pants
Badlands away


He made no neigh, his voice had failed
Badlands, badlands away me Fleur
And then I knew my love was jailed
Badlands away


Then I awoke to hear the neigh 
Badlands, badlands away me Fleur
Oh watch on deck
Oh watch, ahoy
Badlands away
