UnnamedPony by Retl UnnamedPony by Retl
A pony that showed up in a dream of mine a day or two ago. A page of pencil sketches of said pony is avilable here: retl.deviantart.com/art/Short-...  Colors are pretty much taken from blazblue.wikia.com/wiki/File:R...

I asked ~StaryKrow for some tips on how to make my lineart less derp. They pointed out that a lot of drawing software offers a Stabilizer option to help smooth out individual strokes. So the lines on this one were done in a way similar to the Marble Pie drawing here retl.deviantart.com/art/Squeak... but with the stablizer in Firealpaca maxed out for the outlines.

I think this one came out OK, but in terms of time invested VS author appeal, it's not all that great.

looks solid, I can understand you frustration with the time required though, but I'm starting to think that there isn't really an easy way to do anything :P

 

We could call her, Rachel Moon?

Which could work, but it's also not a very pony name. Closest parallel I can think of is Pony Donut Joe. Pony and Donut are self-explanatory nouns. And while Joe is a rather typical pony name, it is also a slang term referring to coffee. Rachael, while it is a pretty name, isn't really one of those self-explaining kind of terms. At least it doesn't seem like it to me. But maybe it's meaningful in a different language, like Gilda means Golden? (But then that's Griffon naming.)

But I might be way overthinking it.

Glad you think it looks reasonable, though. : ) I dunno, I still prefer just doing quicksketches I guess.

I think it's high time we give her a name. We can just call her a ponified Rachel Alucard... unless you have a better idea Retl. I still need to work on the short story for Pokey and her so give me some time and I'll pull it off. :)

I guess we could name her something like Frilly Laces for the frilly dress. Or Mini Skirt because she's a bit on the small side for a pony and frequently wears skirts. Or maybe something like Red Ribbon if she's skilled with ribbons, I guess? I kinda like Mini Skirt. Rachael doesn't seem quite like a pony name. And if it were intended to be a direct BlazBlue crossover, a lot of other things would probably need to be tweaked to fit her usual attire and demeanor.

Frilly Laces...

Mini Skirt...

Red Ribbon...

I think Mini Skirt would be appropriate since in that sketch dump you did of her and Pokey shows that she's the dominative type. I think I may have me an idea up my sleeves.

Could work, yeah. But hey if you come up with a better name or anything, feel free to share it or use it or etc.

Sure. I'll be more than happy to. I think we make a good team. Don't worry, I can figure something out.
