MLP: Fermata by BritishMindslave MLP: Fermata by BritishMindslave
My new MLP character! :'D

Her name is Fermata. I want her talent to be something like being able to hold notes longer than the others. It's a singing talent, yes. uvu

I wanted to design a character who had one bat wing and one pegasus wing without making the sue stereotype. What she has is a deformity. Because of this, she cannot fly. Also, not shown, her covered eye is slightly discolored. This is also from the same deformity.

She's quiet, but not completely shy. She loves to talk about music and she loves to cook. She's not very good at cooking, though, so watch out! If you bring up her wings, she'll get a bit sensitive unless she knows you. Even though she has this, she makes the most out of life. What's the point of crying about something you can't change?

Feedback is always appreciated!

This is my first Critique so i hope its good.I LOVE IT.Its very good artwork you have here.It would be better if her back in the first part to not be so long and her eye shows alot of detail and its very original with the differnt wing types the eyes and the ears very original.If she did have a cutie mark it would show her personality maybe even a marking but im not saying to change it because this is yours you can do whatever you want with her.Many pony OCs are usually colorful and you changed that you made it look a bit less colorful so when you make art it would look alot more natural but if you were to use a colorful pony in a dark background it would look a bit crazy right.But i love it you could add some shading but thats up to you thank you for reading this and i hope it helped and gave you some ideas.

You know, I never thought of that!
I'd think so, since she naturally is a Pegasus. She just can't get to them. xD At least not by normal means.

Wow, this is such a gorgeous OC! Kinda reminds me of one of mine, who has a crippled wing.

Thank you!
Her wing isn't crippled, per se, it just doesn't make sense for her to fly because of the way the wings work. It's a little more realistic, I guess xD

Oh, wait. Fermata has her cutie mark too, doesn't she? Oops, forget that last part. XP

Oh, of course. Still, she just kinda caught my eye because of the similarity. (Of course, mine has discovered her talent already, but that doesn't really matter.)

Yeah, this one's a little older. At this point I hadn't come up with a cutie mark. xD It's not stated in here, so it's all good.
Great minds think alike, though, huh? xD I wanted to do a pony that I know a lot of people would do (one bat wing, one regular wing) and make her a good character (as opposed to what a lot of the other renditions happen to be).

That sort of "take a really overused trait and make it unique" type thing, huh? I can relate. That's actually something I've been trying to do in my stories. Though, I'm not always very good at it.

Yep, that's the thing. I like to make things that are a little different, but still fit in.
And hey, as long as you're not doing the same thing everyone else is doing, I'm sure you're doing fine. xD

So draw the ref as soon as you think you can do it! I'm sure it's not that hard, especially if you're drawing them wings a lot. uvu
