Well, I'm trying to make a brighter pony. But she's still looking pretty "dark" with her double sunburst eyes and dramatic eye shadow. Pupils, lashes are dark purple, not black.


Here's the design sketch. This pony is taking quite a divergent course.

But I wasn't very inspired by the design sketch. So maybe that's a good thing that she's turning out differently? Symbol will be painted, not sculpted.

At this point, the eyes won't match the style of her symbol. So, now what?

Flowers

Maybe instead of plum blossoms you could go with something sketchy. Like dogwood or something with straight, dark branches.

Re: Flowers

Or, perhaps, she could go the tribal path she seems to be going down already- I really like what you did with her eyes and the forehead patch, it'd be a shame to get rid of that. Perhaps plum blossoms for another pony?

i was thinking perhaps black wings and horn, with the pink hair and symbol might go nicely - i like the tribal thing too

What about darker wings? She could be a dark fairy pony.

Ooh, I really like the darker-colored wings idea. If it's possible, you could taint the wingspurple to reflect the purple lashes and pupil.
A variation of the tribal design on her forhead could be repeated for her sysmbol. Sort of how Kasuri was suggesting (I think that's what she was saying)

Drawing

Maybe you should draw purple flowers with a dark butterfly... and dark shinning wings (not black, some clear material).
