Derpy and Doctor Whooves by Earthsong9405 Derpy and Doctor Whooves by Earthsong9405
*EDIT: They have colors now! c:**

--------------
Well well well. What do we have huurrrrrr? C:<

Okay no, seriously, I've gotten so many people asking whether or not I was going to draw these two. And quite honestly, it's been long overdue for me to draw them, soooo... I did. o3o

Doctor Whooves/Time Turner, and Derpy Hooves/Ditzy Doo! They were both a lot of fun to draw, but as the title suggests, they aren't finished. The both of them are going to be colored soon enough, and once that happens they will be available to buy for those who'd like the original sketches of the two of them.

So, a little bit about the two here.

I very loosely based Doctor Whooves (otherwise known as Time Turner) on the appearance of the Tenth Doctor. I actually haven’t gotten around to watching the show itself (gonna do so soon though; havin’ a marathon with some friends at some point), but I know who David Tennant is, and Time Turner actually sorta-kinda-maybe looks like he was inspired by that particular doctor. So I scruffed him up a bit and made him tall. But, I have a feeling that Time Turner is actually a separate doctor, so while he’s vaguely based off of the Tenth Doctor, he isn’t actually that doctor. *shrugs* WHATEVER. I just love his design, okay? It’s cute.  >:C

But Doc here, I see him as pretty upbeat and eccentric, someone who isn't afraid to speak to you and often has a smile on his face. He's pretty quirky, and many sell him off as an eccentric stallion who's pretty damn smart. But, there's more to him than many ever really know about, one of the few being Derpy (who I ship him with hardcore, man. ;_;  )

And then of course, Derpy! I've always seen her as having moderately lengthed mane and an even longer tail, as well as short but elegant wings. She's a tiny bit smaller than what the average height is for a mare, but that only makes her more of a small bundle of affection and happiness. I think she'd be the type to be smiling a lot, however she's kind of laid back despite her tendency to blurt out something if she's excited (especially if it's muffins). She's something of a daydreamer but is pretty intelligent, at least moreso than what others give her credit for, as well as a hardworker that doesn't let much discourage her from doing what she needs to do.

Due to her eyes, she had been the target of bullying for most of her life. The teasing and scornful comments do hurt, yes, but she's learned how to take most of it in stride and simply ignore it, although it does get hard sometimes. Thankfully, in Ponyville many of the citizens there don't care much about how her eyes are. They see her for who she is, and it often puts a smile on their faces when she delivers their mail or interact with her in general, regardless of how clumsy she can be.

In my headcanon, Derpy is the birth-mother of Dinky, and the adoptive mother of Sparkler.

I actually have quite a bit of headcanon for these two, especially regarding Derpy's history and how Doctor Whooves plays into that, but I won't go into it right now. I'll do so once I finish coloring them.

Until then, feel free to ask any questions you have, and thanks a bunch for taking a looksie! ^.^

They're tailfeathers and they help pegasi steer in flight like they would a bird.

There's no set way in looking for it. Ya just gotta keep an eye out and eventually you'll find a couple of artists who do so. Examples of artists that utilize the tailfeathers for pegas off the top of my headi:

Hmm ok so far out of those i only saw Dawn22Eagle and Alextrosaurus with the excess feathers. Still seems unusual to me, but i can see you're not the only one doing it. Is it a thing? Like how Bat Ponies became a 'thing' with MLP are feather butts a 'thing'?

It's just a stylistic choice some artists have chosen to take, specifically in order to make the pegasi both more believable and more unique than simply a pony with wings. Same thing with the stylistic choice of giving the unicorns the classical look: cloven hooves and/or leonine tails, or the choice to draw the MLP characters more realistic or cartoon-esque.

In my main head canon for these 2, this is what applies.
They are the adoptive parents of Sparkler and at the time of the story, the biological parents of Paper Moon (a coltish filly based on a background foal who looked like the Doctor), Dinky Doo and Dizzy Doo (a fillyish colt based on a background foal who looked like Derpy).
Derpy is a nickname for Ditzy Doo and she's Rainbow Dash's younger cousin.
Doctor Whooves is a Time Charger, the Equestria-verse equivalent of the Time Lords. Unlike the Time Lords, the Time Chargers have never had a Time War so the foals have met their Time Charger half-sister from an earlier incarnation of their dad.
Sparkler was rescued by the Doctor and Derpy from an abusive home. She prefers females which is why she was abused. She tries to mask this from both the world and herself but eventually dates the wrong stallion and is convinced to start dating mares, ending up with Cloud-chaser.
Paper Moon's talent is essentially origami and her Cutie Mark is an origami moon. She hates her looks because she's constantly mistaken for a colt. She was a toddler when her parents took in Sparkler. In her teens, she develops a body type like Fluer-de-lis and starts wearing a scarf that her father wore in an earlier incarnation (the 4th Doctor's); she ends up marrying Snails, in part because she finds out he liked her before she turned model gorgeous.
Dinky wasn't born when Sparkler joined the family and until she was told, thought Sparkler was her biological sister. Dinky's talent is swimming and her Cutie Mark is a yin-yang mark made of blue dolphins. She's part of the CMC and ends up with Pipsqueak.
Dizzy is the youngest child and a true happy-go-lucky goof. He turns out to have a talent for making mini-twisters. He ends up preferring colts and in a relationship with Pound Cake (he's definitely the girl of the relationship).
There's also eventually 2 Earth Ponies in the future, one who looks like the Doctor and one who looks like Derpy but they aren't designed yet.

Interesting. You should probably draw the characters and type down the headcanon for them there, that way it'd get more attention that what it would just kinda chillin' in the comments. o3o

It's going to happen some day. It's just that me and my partner have some issues with that right now; she's stuck at home where she doesn't want to be and her only escape has no Internet and I live where high speed has to come with a cap so I can't be on DeviantArt a lot and I'm in grad school so I have to work on assignments over the Internet.

Why do the male ponies have the head shape of a regular horse but female's don't?
Regular female horses have the same head shape.

I'm well aware of that. Every pony has a different head shape, both male and female, in my headcanon. Meaning any pony can have a "horse head", or any pony can have one closer to the canon style.
