Moth Collection

Another piece for the Roan RPG Project. More about the flutter ponies I designed for a while back.

There is the butterfly kind and then there are the moths.
It's left open for anypony to decide to whether or not they just see these little creatures as dumb bugs that just happen to have an equine appearance, or as actual fay or just another sentient species with an insectoid appearance and behaviour. To create some debate among ponies if it's ethical to add them to insect collections and capture them in jars. Can't be sure they are not intelligent just because they haven't found a way of communication yet.

Reusing old pony designs made for the Roan project a while back, from the species bust package which appears in the first main book. Always fun to reuse designs like that.
Still making more art for this project and still not showing all of it, the rest will be in the book and its additional books, hint hint, nudge nudge, wink wink.

Anyways, enjoy!

:O That poor butterfly pony. O3O Just right there, forever staring out and forever still. O.O I know I should be feeling the same way for the other butterflies, but this one is just too similar to ponies and really makes you focus on it. O.O

I recognize your art style from somewhere...Or maybe it's just the color. Ebon Mane, maybe.

Oh?

No. It's not Ebon Mane. I don't know, but the style of the pony on the right looks extremely familiar.

WEll, I've drawn him a few times before, and the art of him is featured in the Roan RPG book.

Don't know what that is. I meant your art style. Might be from memebase. Your art's been posted there a bunch of times (I went through your gallery) but I never checked the source.

I only upload my art myself on dA, tumblr and FA.

Well, it's uploaded by people wanting to share it over on memebase's My Little Brony section with the source underneath in-case we wanted to see more from the artist.

I'm cool with that as long it's sourced back to here with proper credit ^^

Very fascinating, although I don't think that pony on the right thinks so.

He is indeed not as fascinated.

'Cuz it's a bug. Right?

A sapient half-pony bug.

Where's the proof?
GoldandSliverDragon's avatar
They wear clothes sometimes
Ravenpuff's avatar
RavenpuffHobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh? Do they now?
GoldandSliverDragon's avatar
Seabreeze was wearing clothes, of course he seem to be one the in charge at the time and none of the others were wearing anything so maybe clothes are a sigh of rank
