Not entirely sure how accurate this came out, but it was a fun doodle.

Ah, my favorite side story alicorn ^^

He's a really interesting take on the typical healer, eh?

Can you elaborate? :) I'm always looking for quality feedback.
Ana-Mizuki's avatar
Okay, sorry if this goes all rambly ^^''

1) His gender and general nature. He's not the typical Fluttershy healer who is all nice and friendly. Snakebite's a male healer and not the nicest pony found, but he'll help. I also like that he is more in tune with the way the Wasteland works than other healers.

2) He isn't defined solely by being an alicorn. He has his history with his teacher, giving him insight to zebra culture and customs. He likes energy weapons over regular guns. He is mature, and not easily riled up. Those little things help making him much more than yet another alicorn reawakened.

Also, I like the much more smaller scale style of the story, and focus much more on the towns that were created after the megaspells hit. That combined with Snakrbite's own history of growing up in the wasteland, offer a different and less negative view on the setting than say from Littlepip.

Sweet! Misfits is definitely one of the better FOE side stories out there, so I was hoping you would get around to making a sketch of Snakebite Tourniquet at some point.

You made him/her look awesome!
MisterMech's avatar
Definitely going to try to do more art for it and Heroes. :D

Thanks!

Yep, that's just the way I imagined Snakebite from reading the fic.

You're quite welcome.
Turns out, Misfits had updated like a few days ago or so; that was what inspired you, perhaps? :p
Jacky2734's avatar
Go to fimfiction.com instead. That's where he posts it.

I know :3
I kind of forgot though, so after I opened the compilation doc, I facepalmed at myself when I realized I have watched the story on fimfic xD

Misfits is one of the better sidefics out there.
I never EVER expected an alicorn to braid her hair. Brilliant (:
MisterMech's avatar
Agreed
my first time really drawing braided hair as well. xD

Well, its sensible if you carry a passenger. Ever ridden a car with the top down while having long hair? Its a bitch, lemme tell you.
