My OC pony - Sleepy Skies!
This is my first attempt at drawing 4th gen ponies EVER! So please be gentle. This isn't meant to be "pro", I did it in about an hour. I drew it in pencil, then inked it in Photoshop. First time using the pen tool too! Woo!
She was originally my G3 OC who I converted! Edit:
300+ faves on an OC?! Are you ponies CRAZY?! Well... Thank you!! I'm so flattered!
"Sleepy Skies was born at night, to two of Seaddle's most prominent socialites - her father, a Wonderbolt, and her mother, a model. She was a quiet foal, more interested in watching the clouds or reading than running around and playing. Her parents had hoped that she would follow in their hoofprints and become the star athlete, however it soon became clear that her path lead elsewhere.
One night she stayed out late watching the sky and happened to see the aurora lights for the first time. Struck by their beauty, she knew she wanted to dedicate her life to finding and studying unique and beautiful things in the sky. That night she also got her cutie mark – a dusky cloud with a curtain of aurora lights hanging from it.
She graduated flight school and went on to study advanced aerial optical phenomenon in Canterlot. She is now considered to be one of the leading experts on the subject, even at her young age, and is often called into the Weather Factory in Cloudsdale to consult on or study unique effects. She also consults for the Wonderbolts, and helps develop new trail effects for their shows.
Recently, she was visiting her friend Spitfire, who was performing during Cloudsdale’s Young Fliers competition, when she saw something she thought was impossible – a Sonic Rainboom! Since that moment she’s been obsessed with finding the filly who could do something so incredible, however her quiet nature has been hindering the process..."(Her age is right in-between that of Spitfire and Rainbow Dash)
