Name: Ground Pounder
Tropical bird pegasus: Toucan/Magpie based
Talent/occupation: Tropical pegasus do not have cutie marks. Ground Pounder's hobby is digging and searching for precious stones and metals. Panning for gold, digging for crystals, mining gems, ext. 
Diet: Fish and fruit. 
Gender/pronouns: They/them, don't care. Can be shown, portrait, or referred to as whatever you want. 

Fluffs up like an angry cockatoo when mad.

I've been thinking of making an updated, expanded reference for him, actually. I've got one or two minor details I've started drawing differently, and I actually have a seapony form for him too that I would like to picture. Glad ya like it though. :D Reference sheets are surprisingly fun to draw.

Cool! I'm looking forward to the new reference sheet:D

I would love to see more of his seapony form (but I 'm sure I'll like the feathery version better because I'm obsessed with wings and stuff)

I think drawing reference sheets is pretty fun too;)

Anyways, I'm sure the updated reference sheet will be as awesome as this one.


also: Sorry that I'm late but my notifications don't work for some reason:(

really unique color scheme you don’t see a lot of darker colored ponies that aren’t a bat pony or something similar

Honestly hadn't thought about it much. Maybe a bit over 5 ft with his neck stretched out, about 3 1/2 ft at the shoulder. 11-12 ft wingspan

So sleek and pretty, but also extra cute and floofy!
Great balance of colors and the added birdy-ness of the design is really really awesome! It seems a measure more realistic and functional than traditional pegasus designs and I love it!
