So I drew up Vinyl Scratch and Big McIntosh last night. I was hesitant to post them up together, but then I figured I'd end up posting them up separately anyway later. So I may as well post them at the same time here to minimize me spamming your messages. I also actually have Octavia in the works as well, but I couldn't get her the way I wanted to so I decided to post her later when I’ve fixed it. o3o
But, in the meantime, here is Vinyl Scratch and Big McIntosh! c: A bit of headcanon for them, as usual:
Vinyl Scratch is actually gonna be a little more furry than she is here. I kinda see her as a pony who’s pretty scruffy, has very light bags under her eyes (thinkin’ she’s a bit of an insomniac, or at least gets less sleep than she should), and a little knick in her ear. She's also a little under the average size of a pony mare. When I look at Vinyl Scratch I see an artist at heart, who’s extremely passionate about music of all forms, especially dubstep and remixes. She’s relatively laid back, and it’s hard to get under her skin, but if you ask her about anything music related be prepared to have a very animated and enthusiastic Vinyl on your hands. She actually has that little quirk many artists have, the type that usually keeps one up late at night simply because inspiration decided to pay a visit. She’s the roommate and best friend/girlfriend (whichever you prefer; I like either one) of Octavia, whom she gets along with better than what folks think, especially due to their equal love for music.
And then we have ourselves Big Mac. I kinda-sorta mirrored or based this sketch off of the headcanon one of Applejack, if only because to show how much they look like each other. Like AJ, he gets his size from his massive father, however he actually looks a little more like his mother, as well as having a bit of her personality mixed with his father. Regardless of how intimidating his size makes him, he’s a huge softy. Soft spoken, rarely speaks unless needed, he often communicates with his trademark “Eeyup” and “Nnope”, paired with facial expressions and tone of voice (it’s usually enough to get his point across). You guys already knew that though. xD Now, like AJ, Big Mac has some scars adorning his body, from defending the farm or his shipments when delivering an order. His size and deep voice is usually enough to scare away most of those who intend harm, but it doesn’t always work. o3o
I have some headcanon on these two about their history and all of that, but like Derpy and Doctor Whooves, I'm not going to be posting it here; I'll do so when I upload the colored versions separately.
These two sketches, once colored, will be available to bid for a little later. :3 Until then, feel free to ask any questions you may have, and thanks again for taking a look. ^.^
And hey, it's Big Mac. Nice job on making very scruffy. He would definitely look like that in the show.
Lol, thanks man! Big Mac is ridiculous fun to draw, he be. x3
Also I just love your hair drawing! How do you do it? ;u;
ALSO also I was wondering if you ever considered the Canon Pegasus wings o3o that have three boned fingers for primaries
And thanks! When drawing hair, I usually start with the general shape of what the hair will be. Nothing extravagant or anything, just something to help me get the shape and style of the hair right to make things easier. Then I draw lines. Long lines. When you're drawing hair, don't be stiff with it unless the style (for example, gelled hair style) calls for it. Keep your hand loose and do a quick swish of the pencil when you draw the line; it makes the hair look lively and believable. It takes a little practice, but you'll be fine. C:
And indeed I have. I've been thinking of possible ways to incorporate that believably to the wings of a pegasus, but I haven't come up with anything yet other than a closer structure to a bat's wing. We'll see in the future. o3o
And I do that o3o I meant the amazing ways you interpret the canon styled hair to real. I'm in awe on how you do it ^.^ Being an aspiring Hairstylist, I'm always trying to think of how to make wonderful and originals hairstyles, and your's are the best I've seen!
And i'll keep a lookout for that if and when you post it c:
Love the mini-headcanons~ (and I don't need to say ANYTHING about your fabulous drawings).
And thank you! :3
But hey, these sketches are fabulous, and its nice to see Vinyl "altered" in your style ^u^
And thanks! ^.^
