I need some feedback about spacing, breaking the space, color choices. I put a light gray texture in the background, not sure that I like it. ANYWAYS. I still have to finish coloring in the last horse running illustration up at the top, then those will be done. Gah, I’ve stared at this waayyy too long.
If saberponies had a generic color, it would be this. o3o
Females are rare in the saberpony culture, and there will be three or four males constantly courting one female. A band of bachelors, normally around 2 years old, will gang rape one female to carry on genes and what not. Stallions tend to have waaayyy too much testosterone at a young age, and that’s why it happens.
Kur hates Bardok and tries to keep her distance from him, which got her into trouble with a rather large band of bachelors, she fought, and was overpowered. Eventually Bardok finds her and fights off the remaining band. Kur really did most of the work, she’s a good scrapper.
He tries to move her to a better spot, grooms her up, and brings her food until she recovers more. It’s quite cute.
Annndd then I drew them running, because look at dem legs. Also, I cant draw blood, at all. Whatevs,
1. Ox is Kur’s dad. Tiburon is Kur’s mom. Launch is Kur’s adopted mother.
2. Saberponies can live upwards of 80 years or so, being such large creatures, they age slower. The “rarer” colorations, such as Ox’s are because of an over killing by trophy hunters. (Reds, blues, greens, purples, etc). Ox has managed to stay away from hunters for 20 years, he hid in the canyons with Tiburon, who is blind in one eye (due too her white coloring). Had Kur, and then people said there were some rare sightings, and blah blah blah. Tiburon, got caught in a bear trap, Ox came by her side, Hunters showed up. Meanwhile Kur is hiding in their den, in another part of the canyon.
3. Annnddd they died.
4. Because saberpony meat isnt the best, they are normally skinned and heads mounted on the wall. Kur found their bodies a day later, and cuddled them for a few days. The rotting flesh brought Launch, and she was FILLED WITH ALL THE FEELS.
5. She adopted a squirmy angry Kur.
6. This is Kur at about a year, getting grooms from Launch.
