NextGen: Cupcake by Lopoddity
NextGen: Cupcake
-sees Kilala updating old character sheets
-realizes mine are outdated as shit

anyhoo, working on creating official little bios/references for all the jerkwads that make up the Pandoraverse cast. First up is Cupcake, best pony

Cuppetta Diane Cake
"Planning, mayhem, paperwork, arson, et cetera...I do whatever the boss needs. And I bake cupcakes."
Pinkie Pie, Cheese Sandwich
Species: Earth Pony/Female
Special talent: Planning, Baking
Occupation: Personal minion and royal guard, baker
Nickname(s): Cupcake, Cuppy, Cups, CC

The eldest daughter of eccentric party planners Cheese and Pinkie, Cupcake curiously seems to lack her parents' trademark enthusiasm. She is highly inexpressive and almost unfazable, speaking in a flat monotone and hardly ever cracking a smile. Because of these unsettling tendencies, ponies tend to write her off as weird, or plain, or boring. Their loss.
Cupcake is Pandora’s much-beloved best friend and much-beleaguered personal assistant/minion. Her stoic gaze hides a sharp sense of humor that she normally expresses in a torrent of deadpan snark. She is intelligent, loyal, knowledgeable in a surprising number of fields, and hyper-competent, truly the best minion/best friend a girl could want. Pandora values Cupcake’s input and will often use her as a sounding board to cook up new chaotic schemes. If they manage to pull off a plan, it’s usually Cupcake who is responsible. Despite this, Cupcake is perfectly content to simply play the docile assistant to her bombastic boss, and sticks by her through thick and thin, for whatever crazy reason.

Cupcake is immensely devoted to and protective of her loved ones, particularly her younger brother PB and sister J, and life long best friend Pandora. She is very close to both her parents, and has a secret weakness for Cheese Sandwich's dad jokes.

Cupcake trained to be Pandora's royal guard for two years by joining the Equestrian Military. The military was very unforgiving to small, shy earth pony mares, and Cupcake would break many bones and be pitted against stallions three times her size in combat practice and be completely run through the wringer and just, in Cupcake's own words, "be broken apart to be made stronger".
Even though her time in the army was rough, Cupcake eventually gained inner peace and learned to tap into her own immense physical and emotional strength.

-Besides Pandora, Cupcake's closest friend is Fluttershy's scatterbrained health nut daughter, Rosemary. The two of them bond over cups of Rosie's horrible herbal tea (which Cupcake politely drinks) and often spar together.

-Like her parents and younger siblings PB and J, Cupcake is blessed with the Pie family gift of song. Despite her monotone speaking voice, she is quite the talented singer...not that anybody would ever get to hear, of course.

-Warning: Do not feed sugar

Giant Mixed Doodle Dump by Lopoddity
Giant Mixed Doodle Dump
gems and pony doodles here, getcha gems and ponies here, hot off the griddle

have a metric butt-ton of doodles done over the last two weeks or so

1.) Young Pandora, back in her princess training days. She is currently badly missing Cupcake, who's away training to be her future royal guard, but at least she's got good company with Cupcake's idiot twin siblings PB and J (who Pan promised to look after for Cupcake)
i like drawing princess pan, so muuuuch hair gah

2.) "Kilala...I didn't know you could fly."
tried to draw something cute for bae, failed completely, no regrets
this is a reference to the web animation "Bambee" by El Cid

3.) Conceptualizing what a "standard" Larimar and Onyx look like. kilala97 said Larimar isn't normal for her kind, with her savagery/animal tendencies making her a defect. She's also said Larimar-type gems are rare on Homeworld. So I headcanoned that Larimar-type gems are a gentle, soothing, musician/artisan class, which makes Larimar's tendency toward violence all the more perplexing
Standard Onyxes are made to perform technical repairs and maintenance. They are typically small, weak, and highly loyal to their superiors

4-5) Oddly, some of you requested Zircon/Onyx gemling babbus...welp, here ya go. The little Zircon gemling is quite good at crocodile tears

6.) "Pregnant" Onyx...grumpily carrying her and Larimar's gemling babbus. She was surly the whole time and her brain kept glitching and thinking the gemlings were a virus and it didn't help that overprotective Larimama kept trying to drag her off and stash her in a hole to nest in

7.) AU where Onyx and Larimar meet much earlier, on Homeworld, rather than Earth. Larimar is a quiet, ruthless soldier and in charge of protecting annoying, cheerful, idiot scientist Onyx (who won't stop gushing about how amazing her boss-senpai Zircon is, gosh)

8.) Early-ish design for grown-up Moonstone. Her weapon and outfit have since changed. Onyx makes Moonstone carry a jacket cuz she's scared her wittle "Moonie-Woonie" might catch a cold (even though Moonstone is a fierce warrior construct of light incapable of catching a goddamn human illness)
9.) Early, outdated design for Zircon and Onyx's fusion, Silicon. Design very much not final, but I'm getting closer

10.) Emerald tries to give Onyx a pet kitty. Dialogue for those who can't see my crap handwriting:
"Goody. You brought home vermin."
"Isn't she cute? I was thinking maybe you could have her, Onyx."
"...Why? You want me to dissect it?"

Of Team CLEO, Onyx butts heads with Larimar the most, but also has some dislike for Emerald, who is simply too nice and sweet for her own good.

hey emerald she's not joking about the dissection thing do not leave onyx alone with that cat

11.) The return of the Discord scarf, as shown here: With love, Discord by Lopoddity. Twilight wears Discord's present to her, begrudgingly. Fluttershy is a secret Twicord shipper

Onyx and Zircon belong to me
Larimar belongs to kilala97
Emerald belongs to Faith-Wolff 
 Hoooly hell, when did I hit 15,000 watchers? Oh my gooooosh, you guys know how to make a lady feel special. XD While I have been busy with Steven Universe art, I do eventually plan to get back to the the meantime, in honor of all you lovely peep's feedback and support, let's have a look back at how the Pandoraverse developed! (Lots of my old crummy art will be shown here, with commentary by yours truly) Thanks again! :D Buckle up guys, it's gonna be a long ride

My First MLP art thingies (fail, fail, fail)

Rainboom2 by LopoddityRainboom by Lopoddity
Behold, my first attempts at digitally drawn ponies, way back in 2011. Drink in that god-awful anatomy. Gaze upon Rainbow's broken wings and wonky boneless hooves and oh god how was there a point in my life where i considered this good oh god

Noxcovermerged by Lopoddity
Old cover art for a comic project I never started...Nox: The Return of Sombra. In the story, we learn Sombra was Luna's old student, and she resurrects him from his horn fragment, in the hope of turning him back to good. The story would have been comedy/drama, with Sombra trying to adjust to de-evilization training under the watch of Twilight and Pinkie Pie (Luna locked a magical collar around his neck that disabled his magic and zaps him whenever he has malevolent intentions). Never got around to writing the script properly

Developing the Pandoraverse Cast (trial and error)

Panny by Lopoddity Pandora:
Pandora herself had the most boring conception out of all the nextgen cast, I believe. I just doodled a Twilight/Discord what-if baby in my notebook in class one day, then went home and colored it. The Pandoraverse wouldn't have come to exist if you guys hadn't been so interested in her, prompting me to make the askblog (which doesn't really answer asks anymore haha). Fun facts about dear old Panny:

-She originally had pigtails, and her name was originally Havoc (urgh why)

-Her personality was pretty mary-sue back then, in that she was good and kind, but the mean ponies just didn't understand her, baaaaaw. Also she would sometimes unknowingly shapeshift into a giant, evil, destructive version of herself, and would have eventually grown up to be the malevolent goddess of destruction and mayhem, to Twilight's and Discord's dismay...really glad I didn't go with this

-Since Discord has a beard, I considered giving adult Pandora a glorious mustache. She would have kinda looked like a schnauzer dog, like Tramp of Lady and the Tramp. Honestly I kinda regret not giving her that fab mustache. Maybe she conjures it for herself when she feels extra fancy

Cupcake was made entirely to be Pandora's best friend and character foil. She was not originally a NextGen, just an OC, and despite the character similarities, was actually created some time before the "Maud Pie" episode aired. Her hair, bow, colors, and personality were originally a straight homage to the character Big Patty, of Hey Arnold!
Cuppyconcept by Lopoddity
Old color palette test...toldja she wasn't originally Pinkie's daughter. Geez I was pretty bad at choosing harmonious color palettes back then. In the lower righthand corner, you can see a Cupcake that very closely resembled the character that inspired her, Big Patty.
Pannyandcupcakeorig by Lopoddity My, my, that's an icky color palette. Also, too Fluttershy-y. Way to go, me. A little more color fiddling gave us this:
Cupcakepandorahugfinal by Lopoddity The deadpan Earth pony as we know her today. In the end, I chose colors and a personality that would work well with Pandora's...interesting, as Cupcake, the sidekick character, ended up my very favorite in the cast. Fun facts about Cuppy:

-Originally, back when Pan was totes mary sue and the story was underdeveloped as fuck, Cupcake had an enormous crush on Pan that Pandora was incredibly oblivious to. This is why she agreed to be Pan's minion...I later switched it around so that Pan was the one with the big crush, and Cupcake the oblivious one.

-In canon, Pandora calls Cupcake "muffinbutt" when they start dating...Cupcake isn't a fan of this

-I designed a set of triplet baby sisters for Cupcake that I've never revealed...I'm not sure if they will ever become canon. I mean I do think Cheese and Pinkie would have a lot of kids, but still...

Aerostorm, Ember, and Misty:
Stormy's design was the result of late night semi-drunk doodling...What if Rainbow Dash had a totally chill kid? Wa-la, Stormy was made.
Sandy by Lopoddity  His name was originally Stormfront, which I later changed when I found out it was the name of a neo-nazi hate group (Oh god, bullet dodged, thank you google). Then it was Sandstorm, "Sandy" for short...but his colors were pretty uninteresting, so I threw in more rainbow. I do miss that sandy blonde mane tho
Rainbowdaughters by LopoddityI chose Ember and Misty's names from a list of older generation pony names. Ember's name was originally Firefly, from the old G1 pony. Rainbow Dash's color palette lends itself to lots of color variety when designing nextgen kids for her, but ultimately I went with a fire/water motif. With Stormy, Ember and Misty form an element trio, Water, Fire, and Air. For shits n' giggles I thought about giving Stormy an Earth pony little brother to represent "Earth", but scrapped the idea (tho I do still like the idea of Rainbow Dash having to accept giving birth to an flightless Earth pony)

Bruce2 by LopoddityBruce was originally made to be an antagonist to Pandora, a bully, a bad boy, a rival, and yet another character foil. He felt flat, in that regard...but thanks to feedback from you all, Bruce developed into his own character, and went from being a two-dimensional bully to a mostly harmless tsundere dork jerk. Fun facts about Bruce:

-His full name (yes, he has one) is Bruce Carcharodon... as in the scientific name for the Great White Shark, Carcharodon carcharias. The name "Bruce" is a reference to the name of the animatronic shark of the film Jaws. Bruce grows up to be a marine biologist that studies sharks. This character has a shark motif could you tell
-Bruce was originally a pretentious artist batpony named Mako that had a weird stalker-ish crush on Pan
-Bruce is not a NextGen, he's an OC. His parents are here: Bruceparents by LopoddityHis household was one of neglect and alcoholism, poor Brucie

Princess Skyla:

For the life of me, I don't know why I borrowed Hasbro's official character Skyla to use as a NextGen, rather than design my own. Oh, well. It took a long time to develop Skyla's color palette and personality to where I wanted it to be. Like many of the cast, she's a character foil to Pandora, but has her own identity and issues (mostly conflict over being a princess and desiring to become an alicorn)
Skylaold by LopoddityOld, rejected color palette test. Too pink, I think. Fun facts about Skyla:
-She's been working her tail off to ascend to alicorndom and doesn't understand why Celestia won't grant it to her already dang it
-Pandora used to call her "La-la" when she was a wee draconequus cubbie that couldn't talk very well yet
-Skyla is penpals with Artemis and friends with Magnolia May. She also has a yet unrevealed crush on somepony in the Pandoraverse cast.

Dropped Story Arc-Identity of Oddball's Father:
Hey, so remember that sad Pandoraverse future timeline where everyone was dead and Discord transferred his lifespan to Pan, so she became the new goddess of chaos? I eventually scrapped this plot for being too needlessly bleak, but here's some old stuff on it:
1000 years by Lopoddity Oddball's observation by Lopoddity
It took place 1000 years in the future of MLP, and the only companionship Pandora had was her son, Oddball...who's father I never revealed, and who I eventually retconned into being a Pandora/Cupcake child born in the main timeline (yay for happier ending) But until the retcon, I considered multiple ideas for Odd's father:

-This guy:
Conversation by LopoddityDragon Prince by Lopoddity  A dragon prince of a faraway land, a sweet, somewhat socially awkward fellow Pan would have befriended in childhood and fallen in love with a few centuries later, and then they would have had Oddball. I believe his name was Prince Light, or Lightning, idk. He was a sweetheart but eventually got scrapped

-This guy:
Tinker3 by LopoddityLucent by Lopoddity An eccentric Earth Pony sorcerer who would have gotten in over his head befriending the then thousand year old goddess Pandora. I believe I settled on the name "Felix" for him...before ultimately scrapping him

-Annnnd Bruce! I considered Bruce being Oddball's father. Ultimately decided against it. Retconned Odd into being a Pandora/Cupcake kid, scrapped the 1000 year future storyline, and never loooked back

Miscellaneous Pandoraverse Art
Leftover art extras. Let's see:
Demeter1 by LopoddityTested out a design for my concept of Discord's deceased mother, Demeter. Not sure if I'll use her in canon

Moonpie by LopoddityMoondancer/Peanut Butter Sandwich is a ship I considered, but have since scrapped since I retooled Moondancer's personality and backstory (which you'll eventually get to see, promise)

Fishcake by LopoddityBruce/Cupcake what-if shipping babbu, Fishcake. She is smol and deadpan and glorious, Bruce/Cupcake is my fav guilty pleasure ship

Art by LopodditySomewhat oldish, semi-outdated concept art for Artemis

Kilala-chan by Lopoddity Not really Pandoraverse art, just silly old NextGen Highschool animu art of the bae, kilala97 . Original lineart by Pikokko  :heart:

And we've reached the end, dear watchers. Again, I'd like to thank you all (all 15,000 of ya!) for giving me so much wonderful feedback and support, and making this the best art-making year of my life. Here's to more art in the future! Love you guys! :heart:

Does Pandora have an "alicorn" form for you? Since she was in princess training she could have possibly have one right? I'm curious because she already has horns and wings so I was wondering if she would look completely different?
Trainwrekcomics Featured By Owner 5 days ago
I has question;

Is it possible for you to create something so cute that you literally stop and go into maternal spasms of sheer happiness and cute?
Lopoddity Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Student Digital Artist
Not quite, but sometimes my watchers suggest ideas that are so cute I squee a little. :)

Hello there Miss Lopoditty! I really enjoy your artwork and am an ameatur voice actress. So often I practice with OC characters of all sorts. I had so much fun with one of your characters Magnolia May and decided to put this little video together.…

I really hope you enjoy. If not and you wish me to take it down for one reason or another I'll understand.
