NightFlame ref by 8-Xenon-8 NightFlame ref by 8-Xenon-8
<edit> AAAA I FORGOT HER GREEN LEG MARKINGS
I knew there was something missing. It's just like me to forget how my own characters look :iconrdfacehoofplz: </edit>

A really quick and much needed ref for my Ponysona, NightFlame~
Her personality is meant to be an exact copy of my own... so very confusing! :XD:

The reason for the two cutiemarks is the Personal one is more for pictures I draw of her doing things say... that actually happened to me, or using her to represent myself in some way. The Regular cutiemark is for everyday normal Equestria stuff... so I would use that one for RPs or if I drew her interacting with a character from the show, or something idk :iconrainbowdashshrugplz:

Her "regular" special talent is... difficult to explain xD
It'd be better if you saw it in action... which would be pretty hard lol
I should draw a pic sometime...


FiM (c) *fyre-flye
Ugh omg, the Show Style NF. I had to trace that off of an RD vector. Don't ever make me do that again; I hate tracing, it goes against everything I stand for in art OTL

Her color scheme reminds me of a eagle or something (i cant remember what bird it is lol) and a pony version of the girl from brave ! Either way she is simply adorable !

You should draw a pic of it! Should it be special Pegasus magic where she can change the colors with a special kick (cycling through colors until she has the right one) or should she literally paint the clouds?

Something like the first one, but it's more like a "mood ring" where she can change the colour by her feelings/emotions :b

So her special talent is changing clouds based on her moods?

:noes: Still one of the best ponysonas I have ever seen :aww: This is ponysona perfection right here; very beautiful and unique, yet not too over the top like most. :) Awesome!
And two cutie marks for different uses of the character? That's an interesting idea (though kinda confusing :XD:)

Ah yeah, a bit.. I've seen it done before though, and I really felt I needed to do it; I want to use my Ponysona for regular things too, but the "drawing" or "art" cutiemark is just SO overdone, I decided I would have a second one for other purposes xD

Peanut-ButterNJelly Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012
OH MY GAH YES. The art/writing/etc. cutie mark is just everywhere. I wish people would focus on their other talents. Or lack thereof, kind of like with my ponysona :XD:
And I guess your reasoning makes sense xD I, however, have not seen anyone do this but you. Guess I haven't looked at many OCs :P

but since drawing IS actually my main talent, I kind of HAD to use it :XD:

Yeah, in your case at least, drawing is DEFINITELY your talent :XD: You draw amazing pictures faster than I can breath.

Though I am quite tired of everyone who can draw using it as their mark. Just because they can make a few good pictures like their sona doesn't mean it's their special talent. I can draw okay, and I'm a very good writer, but they're definitely not my main talents :P I'm not sure what is, honestly -_-

I TOTALLY understand your moral dilemma on tracing... I trace all the time when I'm first learning something new, but I never post any of it. When I first started drawing MLP I traced SEVERAL pictures, but only until I got a good-ish feel for the style and I've never posted any of those tracings. Still, learning that way helped to make drawing the style on my own pretty easy, and while mine are still far from perfect, I don't think they're bad at all. It IS a good way to learn ^u^

Bleh, I just don't like tracing at all. Never did, never will. I find studying how something looks and moves is a better way to learn, rather than tracing it.
If you trace something, you're still making all the same mistakes the original artist made... Unless of course you're tracing a photograph, that's different; I don't mind that.

X3 Generally when I trace it IS photos I'm tracing, but that's for anatomy and such. Style wise, MLP and The Lion King are the ONLY drawings I've ever traced before ^^; And I still hate tracing too :p It feels like cheating. Even just knowing that that's how I learned to draw MLP makes me feel like my totally legit drawings aren't even fair because of it... but at the same time, I went from drawing like this: [link] [link] when I was just observing, to this after just a few traces: [link] [link] (<--- and nothing there was reffed off of anything; I didn't trace things in similar poses so that I could draw those poses or anything like that. It was mostly faces I traced when I was trying to learn how to do the heads). Like it or not, I can't deny it's helped me learn the style X3

Well of course it does help with learning the style... but that's the thing.. I don't like copying the show style, because to me, that's like copying any other artists' style.. cause technically it is... I dunno, I just don't like doing anything like that myself xD

:icondreamscape195:
Dreamscape195 Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012
Lol yeah, and I love your style X3 I think it's adorable; it's nice to see someone with their own style for once, especially when it's that adorable.

I, on the other hand, am a complete and total failure when I try to draw "cute", and it's somewhat fun for me to try and master other styles once and a while. :shrug: The only reason I said anything was because I figured if you're not comfortable posting a trace maybe you'd be more comfortable learning VIA trace and posting a non-trace if there was ever a next time ^^;

I think my style can be cute too, but that's kind of my own perspective on cuteness... and I have an odd view on what's cute and what isn't xD

Ah, all it takes is practice... I've been drawing for so long everything's kind of second-nature to me, but it's not like I was born with skill... no I was terrible before :XD:

Yeah I thought so, I just realllyy don't like tracing. I've hated it since I was little, and I still do... My thoughts on it haven't really had much of a reason to change ^-^;

Your style IS cute. XD My perspective's a little weird too, but your style IS adorable to me.

Oh gosh yes, so much practice @_@. I still don't think I'm good XD

Funny enough I always hated tracing too... it wasn't until about 2 or maybe 3 years ago that I started tracing anything at all and even then it was almost always photos. I've always been a huge fan of The Lion King though, and when I finally got the internet and discovered dA and it's huge fan base I wanted a way to boost my skill to something passable as TLK style as quickly as possible. I've felt terrible about tracing to learn ever since, but I guess I've been trying to talk myself into not feeling as guilty about it as I do, especially now that I've turned around and done the same thing to teach myself MLP style. I know I feel less guilty than if I'd traced or copied for any of my finished drawings (those are all unreffed strait from memory or made up) or if I'd used a base, but don't get me wrong, I do still feel cruddy using the style at all due to the way I learned it.

xb Well, I can see what you mean.. I still don't like tracing, but if it's helped you, I suppose that's good c:
I just don't like doing it myself.. especially since when I trace, things come out pretty bad anyway.
I've never had any real practice at tracing, so I suck at it either way xDD

How exactly is one a loud introvert? Do you talk loudly to yourself?
