Discord on Draconequus OCs by grievousfan Discord on Draconequus OCs by grievousfan
:star:Mabon-Tail has done a voice dub of this comic!… :heart:
:star:NDLMongoose has also done a voice dub of this comic!… :heart:!
EDIT 2/25/13:
Fixed a small coloring error in panel 7
:star: Cheat sheet over here:
This is my biggest pet peeve with fan characters. Those characters that look like someone took a screenshot of their favorite character, recolored it and then said "DERP look at my totally original OC design!" (though if their backstory is good then I might overlook the design).
Weeellll that's a nice coloring job, I guess? :V
I realize all the ponies in the show use practically the same body base; here I'm talking about OCs that look exactly like, say, Twilight Sparkle, only with different colors and a different cutie mark. Or in the case of the comic, draconequus OCs that look like the spitting image of Discord; same animal parts and all.

Really don't mean to offend anyone with this. Just artistically expressing my personal opinion :la:

plus Discord looks fabulous with a rainbow mane~:heart:

I agree with this 100%!

Also, IMHO, nopony should be hiding behind the excuse of "Well a draconequus is hard to draw with different parts..."

And you're saying that drawing Discord the way he is is easy?

I have to agree

THERE IS NO TEMPLATE PEOPLE! Draconaquess's can look like anything
TwinkieMinkie24 Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2016  Student General Artist
Which would disrepect the Latin meaning of 'Draconequus' and 'Draconequus' mainly means - DRAGON-HORSE (DRAGON-PONY), adding one or two features is fine, but, the main features need to be both dragon and pony features.
SonicMila Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
seeing that you did a critique of someones draconequus oc can you do mine?
StagetechyArt Featured By Owner Edited Jun 18, 2015  Professional General Artist
Yeah its so hard to to make something  simalier  but different. cause you really dont got a anatomy base to go off of  and it makes it  hard when he is mismatched  parts.
AskStrelkaFoxThing Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2015
On my draconequus OCs the only alike thing usually is the stretched body.

I can completely agree, I dunno why people take some of Discord's design, maybe even all of the design and just put the head as a pony.
LightEcoSage1 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2014
That second to last panel Discord was highly impressive!
arcanineryu Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2014  Student General Artist
I was actually surprised how difficult it was to create  draconequus oc that used a different set of body parts than discord while still coming off as aesthetically pleasing, rather than just a bizarre eyesore of a mish-mash of parts and colors, or just a discord clone.
Although unfortunately, even though now that Ive made one that is actually pretty decent, I'm not involved with role play and fan-fiction writing and such enough to really use her for anything.
oh well.

Discord obviously has an imagination

I agree Discord. Gotta have some creativity when creating an OC of a creature that was born and fueled by creativity.
Zoey888VGtech Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2014
I'm inspired and moved by this piece
Darkton93 Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2014
You are my favorite Discord blog now. Just the sheer Discordness of all your posts is amazing. This is where I got started, and it really attracted me to this account. Also, it's perfect advice for anyone who wants to make an OC. Don't just copy!

Hey, would you mind critiquing a Draconequus OC I'm working on if I link her to you? (as far as being original, etc.)

White Wishes by marikazemus34
(Note: all of the names with ' around them means that's what SHE calls them. (Keep in mind, she's only, like... CMC age, give or take.))

Okay! So for her hind legs, we have a Zebra leg and a Birchwood Timber'puppy' leg. Front limbs are a 'Chicken Kitty' (Gryphon) and a Snow 'Kitty' (leopard). Tail is a Squirrel, body is a dragon, and head/neck is a Batty Bat (Thestral). She has a Muntjac horn and a Changeling horn, and her wings are a Chocobo (she calls them 'Warkwehs', because the sounds they make are 'wark' and 'kweh') and a 'Blizzard Birdie' (Cyro Phoenix. (meaning ice phoenix, inspired by Anivia from League of Legends.))

She uses most of her power to change herself into whatever race she feels like at the time, though she likes the Chicken Kitties, Batty Bats, and Snow Kitties the most, cause they're the cutest, she thinks.

(Read my other reply to this comment to remember anything else specific about her, etc.)
MagicaITrevor Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Awesome, thanks! (She's being drawn by someone else, and they haven't uploaded her yet, so it might be anywhere btw. a day and a week or two. ^^; )

I'll likely say it again when I link her, but keep in mind, she's only... around 11 (so CMC age, give or take) and she was 'designed' with the intent of maximizing 'cute' and 'adawableness' factors. (Her name is White Wishes, and she's an Albino. So naturally, she is entirely white, aside from a few markings here and there. >:3 (She's the one character I have that is every single race, so once someone pointed out I hadn't made her a Draconequus form, I HAD to say challenge accepted, naturally.))

Also, it's drawn in pony style, so she won't look the same as Discord in that regard either. (Meaning she's on all fours, with the proportions of a pony. He has never done a Draconequus before, and didn't want to make her uncute by drawing her like Discord. (Though her head could still use cutifying, IMO, but I'm not an artist, so I'm not sure what to tell him to make her cuter.))

In the 3rd panel I think you got Discord's wings messed up. :P

Ah~ XD The fan base is wonderful, but a plentiful amount of times when it comes to personality or design, OC's are entirely made up of cliches. Hell. . .I'm even a culprit. . .Thank the Lord for the glorious ones who are able to storm up something out of the ordinary. Like you, yourself~

I see...
Fifth Panel:  Zecora's leg, Little Strongheart's leg, Nightmare Moon's wing, A changeling's wing.
Sixth Panel: Spitfire's mane (Maybe), Luna's wing.... That's it for that one
Seventh Panel: Big Mac's Leg, Cadence's wing, Celestia's leg, Spike's tail, Twilight's mane as his body, Rainbow's mane, Sombra's horn, Chrysalis's horn, and I think that's Pipsqueaks color pattern for his face.

Anyone recognize anything else?

Awesome work, so true ^^
AgentBengalTiger Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I see Celestia's, Big McIntosh's, and Zecora's legs...
I see Sombra's horn and a changling horn...
Cadence's wing, and Spike's tail... That other one might be Luna's wing...
He's got a little of Rainbow's mane... Fluttershy's tail, I believe... That other mane could be from one of the Wonderbolts...

Yeah, that's not all of them, but it's a good chunk.
AgentBengalTiger Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Pretend you've got an imagination....
