Underappreciated Characters | Vincenzo ‘Vinny’ Santorini 

“My family owned a flower shop. We would sell roses, carnations, baby’s breath, you name it. One day, I’m making about three dozen corsages for this prom, you know, the one they put on the wrist, and everybody, they come. “Where is it?”, “When is it?”, “Does it match my dress?” It’s a nightmare. Anyway, I guess there was this leak next door of gas or what. BOOM! No more Chinese laundry. Blew me right through the front window. It was like a sign from God. I found myself that boom. “

  • "It only took me like, what? Ten seconds? Eleven, tops."
  • "Who are you? Who sent you? Speak up!"
  • "Someone needs to talk to that girl."

Anyone gonna go see the MLP movie on Friday? I had planned on bringing my little sister to it so she could probably freak out the entire time, but money’s kind of tight so it’ll most likely have to wait until it comes out on DVD or Netflix. 
I originally wanted to draw everyone’s new favorite waifu, but went with good old Nightmare Moon instead when her hair wouldn’t fit on the page. Seriously, Tempest, we KNOW you’re “2 edgy 4 u” but maybe calm down on the hairspray.

I originally wanted to try and draw the new seapony designs because they’re crazy cute, but I didn’t have enough time. So I decided to give the new edgy waifu another try!
Holy cow, this horse is ALL hair. Like, I had to squish her mane onto the page to get it all to fit. Tempest Shadow, I hope when your eventual reconditioning in the movie happens, it includes a haircut, because DANG you could lie flat on a boat and sail with that mowhawk if you wanted to.

These pony portraits have been fun! They’ve partially been inspired for Tony Fleecs, one of the artists for the MLP comics (and then some!) who does super adorable portraits.
I cleaned and refound my three different Sunset Shimmer toys, including the very first one they put out!, and got inspired by them. She’s just… REALLY cute as a pony!! Can’t believe I still haven’t watched the episode where she and Starlight run off and have fun… 

Lol, who am I kidding, I haven’t watched a single bit of season 7. Has it been any good??

Aaaand she’s done!

I’ve been wanting to do this since the episode aired, but didn’t really have the time to do it until now. Holy cow, what a ride. I put a lot of different stuff in here, I don’t even know where to start!
I’d have to say my favorite part is the bottom half. I’m going to have to see if I can recreate what I did in other things since I like the texture on her skirt.

Hope y’all like this! It was certainly fun to make!

A late Inktober! I actually did this on Sunday, but just got around to scanning it… It was posted on my twitter via my phone on time at least.

Have a vampire!Yumi for your Halloween-y needs. I might try to do something else with this idea later… I just need to be willing to screw up a couple more times before I get the image I’m going for!

THE VOIDFISH!!! Holy cow, do I love the Voidfish!!! Like, I love it so much. I want freakin’ plushes of this little buddy, so stinking bad. 

A little bit of a different Inktober for this one… Mostly because I’ve always envisioned the Voidfish to be this galaxy-filled Man of War, and I didn’t want to draw it without any color going on.

Okay, there’s a lot of things that don’t add up in this one, but that’s what happens when I don’t finish a drawing in one sitting and it gets broken up. 
Non-English names aren’t that hard people! Just listen to the person it belongs to, and don’t ask for an English nickname or try to correct them. Pretty sure they know what they’re talking about when it comes to their own name.

Totally inspired by this.

Oof, I’m definitely burning out on Inktober. I’ve been having to push myself to really draw this week since all I can think about are the other projects I want to poke at… I’ve only got so much time and energy to devote to creative endeavors each day though! >>;

Anyway, have another Risu! It sure is easy to steal your not-boyfriend’s clothes when he’s twice your size.
Don’t ask how she’s sitting like this, I couldn’t fix the sketch enough to have it all make sense and I couldn’t make myself care enough either. That’s what happens when you’re running on fumes, fam.

Since I’ve only ever drawn her once, let me re-introduce Rika! (Of the Sheikah!) My one and only Zelda OC that pretty much only belongs in BotW. She’s got a whole wild story that needs to get told when I’m not still beating Unforgiven’s finale into submission. 

This is what she looks like post-game though! A lot of things happen between the time she leaves Kakariko with Link and the defeat of Ganon, chronicling the whole adventure and then some.

AHAHAHAH-!! Ohmygosh, that was fun!!
I’ve been dying to try the redraw scene thing for a while, and finally had the spare energy to give it a shot. Nightmare Moon in the season finale was awesome, and I loved the shots she got when they introduced her. She was refreshingly crazy-evil, just look at that! And those teefies!! Gotta love the teefies. (Yes, that’s what they’re officially called.)

I’ll probably do Chrysalis next. 

The really sad thing is that they’re probably not trees at all.

Whenever I see someone create a character that has stuff in common with one I have, I always get the urge to draw them together. And I just couldn’t resist giving carniscorner’s Eggyolk a whirl, because, come on! Her name’s Eggyolk, how cute is that?! Also she’s yellow! Just all around adorable, ah!

Like Korra, she has a color variation, although it doesn’t effect her as badly as it does my poor girl. She’s just bigger then most other Changelings.

Korra, on the otherhand, got really jipped by the gene pool. Her pink eyes are cute, but she has terrible vision, usually resulting in seeing double or even triple images. Her legs also have a bit too many holes in them which makes it a bit difficult for her to walk.
On top of all that, she’s a teenager. Yikes! 

So, I thought this would be a good thing to address. The next FQC update is gonna answer a ton of questions, but I thought going over one of them in greater detail before I got to working on it would be a good idea.

The most asked question, besides where Chrysalis’ mom is and how their relationship works, can be broken down into “Where are all the men?”
A lot of people assumed that Tarrlok was the only female exception in terms of the captains, and/or that the Changelings are mixed everywhere. This is totally wrong.

As seen in the picture above, a female worker has a horn and wings. They need these things to do all the jobs that they’re assigned, whether it be to infiltrate pony villages, take care of eggs, or just general stuff in the Hive. They come from fertilized Changeling eggs.

A male drone doesn’t have any of these things, and, to further distinguish them, they are have different eyes. Drones are pretty much just walking baby-makers. They have no free thought whatsoever, and their entire existence revolves around the Queen and her needs, whether it be keeping her company, fetching her things, or doing the baby thing.
When the Queen isn’t in the Hive, they go into an idle state, and don’t do much of anything except wait for her to come back. The Hive can usually tell when the Queen will return based on how active the drones become since they’ll usually inexplicably perk up and start wandering around looking for her. They are completely loyal and hardly ever leave her side.

A drone generally comes from an unfertilized Changeling egg, but there’s another way a drone is created.
To keep the Hive genetically diverse, the Queen will go out and look for a healthy male pony, does the usual Changeling song and dance, and then completely drains him of all emotion except for the love for her, essentially brain-washing him. After this, she takes him back to the Hive, and, eventually, the pony winds up looking like all the rest of the drones. Ponies aren’t exactly meant to survive with just one single emotion left in them. This happens every couple hundred years or so.
