OH NO I made a dumb cute MLP OC because oh no I’m a dumb weenie.
She’s a zedonk! Thought it would be cute and feasible since both species already exist in the FiM universe, and gosh just look how cute zedonks are with their stripety legs:
I might get rid of the lighter toned underbelly to simplify the color palette, since most characters in the show have a pretty simple design scheme, but idk.
DUMB BACKSTORY STUFF: Her father was a zebra and her mother is a donkey. Her mother was a travelling merchant who met her father in africaland or WHEREVER zebras come from in FiM, which is where she was sired, but her father left soon after (haven’t decided if he was just a flake or if he had to leave for some other more noble reason). After that her mother settled down somewhere more pony-populated in Equestria, where the zedonk didn’t know any other zebras, or even know about them existing until she was old enough to ask why she was the only one with funny markings and anatomy out of all the other donkey foals. Once she was older she gained more of an interest in her heritage, and began studying traditional zebra potion magic in Canterlot. So now she’s a practicing alchemist, with a small potion shop in the city where she makes her income.
Can’t think of a name for her yet, oh well!
