Species swap time!I've already drawn Twilight as a dragon and a draconequus, and Spike as a pony. Which pony should get a species swap next?

Pan meets Illusion by Lopoddity
Pan meets Illusion
Oh, Illusion, I'm so sorry.

     Pandora stopped, only now noticing Illusion’s entry. For a moment, there was dead silence, before she broke into barely restrained giggles. “Oh my gods, this place is too great.”

    “Excuse me?” Illusion had the sudden feeling he ought to be offended.

“You’re so tiny!” She swept him up into a noogie, promptly running her talons through his hair. “What are you, some kind of pygmy draconequus?”

This is a doodle based on a fanfic :icon146tym: is currently working on, in which Pandora travels to the Kilalaverse on an extradimensional rescue mission. The first citizen she meets is dear Prince Illusion, attracted by all her chaotic magical ruckus. There could have been a moment of awe and wonder between the two heirs to chaos, but nope, Pan is like holy shit look at this precious angel baby draconequus wheee in pretty much the most unintentionally patronizing way possible. It only gets worse when she meets wee little Starburst. Pan that guy is the fucking crown prince to Equestria for god's sake put him down you twit (though I guess it ain't her fault everypony in the Kilalaverse is cute and lovable as sin)

...I really like Illusion's face. Illusion.exe has stopped working

Prince Illusion (a Celestia/Discord NextGen OC) belongs to :iconkilala97:)

Pandora (a Twilight/Discord NextGen OC) belongs to me

Addendum: This isn't a shipping thing, people. They are related, technically. I just wanted to show off their size difference and illustrate my favorite scene from the fanfic
Pounce Denied by Lopoddity
Pounce Denied
Noiselessly, the draconequus slides forward, eyes sharp and intent on her sleeping prey. Each step is slow and deliberate, her padded paws allowing her to come on in deadly silence. The teenage dragon continues to slumber, oblivious to his impending fate. With a mighty leap, the draconequus cub sails through the air, boosted by the haphazard (but of course graceful) flaps of her still-developing wings.

In one swift motion, Spike swings his lower body up and inward, neatly catching his little sister with his hind legs.

"Nice try." Spike said, smirking, "But next time, try not to narrate yourself while you 'hunt', oh swift and mighty predator Panny."

"Rawr!" said Pandora, still struggling to boop his nose with her paw.


I get a lot of requests to draw more of Spike and Pandora's relationship. They're pretty close, despite the age gap (Spike is in his late-ish teens, Panny is school aged). Panny thinks her brother is the absolute coolest and annoys the hell out of him with sticky sweet little sister wuv~
Spike is really is a cool BBBFF and enjoys having somebody looking up to him for once
Fire in the hole by Lopoddity
Fire in the hole

Twilight Sparkle’s Lock-Out Charm is a variant of the generic unicorn Shield Spell, designed for the express purpose of repelling greedy little draconequus paws, while rendering whatever the Charm is cast on nearly shatter-proof.

Nearly shatter-proof.

Later down the line, Pandora would find that really, there aren’t a whole lot of problems in life that can’t be solved by blowing them up

as for her tenacity here, well, those aren't just any cookies in that jar, those are Spike's dragonfire-baked super special ultra-delectable Triple Chocolate Chunks in there. They're worth blowing up a living room or two

Magic Shock Cannon by Lopoddity
Magic Shock Cannon
Wild Pandora used Hyper beam!

Soooo it was pointed out to me occurred to me that I've rarely actually shown Pandora using magic. So I'll work on that. Pan's magic is pinkish-purple and sparkly, resembling Twilight's much more than Discord. When she's affecting something with magic, the item will glow, just like a unicorn's magic aura. She can conjure things out of thin air and shapeshift and do everything Discord can do, just generally not as competently.

Pandora developed her shock cannon attack initially for combating her father in their friendly (not so friendly) magic duels. A more sophisticated unicorn might have designed a spell for paralyzing or gently incapacitating an enemy, while dear Panny designed the cannon for the sole purpose of bulldozing the ever living fuck out of whatever it hits. It...really isn't so effective against Discord, who 1.) is smart enough to move out of the way, and 2.) could probably brush off the hit anyway. Weaker foes, it works just fine.
Holy frijoles, I draw ONE kinda ship-teasy thing and I get back no less than THREE fan-foal designs overnight for Pandora and Cupcake.

Ask Powdered Munchkin and Hectic Sparkle! by MoonSaphirre  Perseus( Hectic ) Sparkle by MoonSaphirreFlapjack - PanCake by unoriginaI

Say whaaaaat? You guys really do blow me away, I'm so happy to have such wonder (and endlessly creative) watchers. :D
Speaking of watchers, I hit 5K a while ago! Thank you, everybody, I promise I've got a ton of crazy awesome art planned. ;) My comp was repaired my my dear tech geek friend, who also did me the honor of replacing all the missing screws and broken hinge so it's no longer held together with duct tape and prayers. XD

-Also, regarding my latest poll, thank you all for your kind words. I do take myself too seriously and am way too selective about what I post here (You guys only see like...4% of the stuff I draw in a week). From now on, the floodgates will open. You guys will get way more silly doodles, mixed in with regular illustrative work.:)

I'm in love with your lineart style!! Llama Emoji-02 (Blush) [V1]  It looks like you either have some pencil/crayon-like brushes or you sketch on paper first. If you do use brushes, may I ask what kind of brushes you use for your lineart? <: Sorry if this is answered somewhere else that I don't see. 
Lopoddity Featured By Owner 1 day ago  Student Digital Artist
Why, thank you! :D Most of the time, my lineart is done with pencil. I love using pencil, because I'm terrible at freehanding lineart digitally and the pen tool can be tedious and too inorganic. I do a sketch with light blue pencil, and draw the lines over it with a hard tipped HB pencil. So when it's scanned, it normally looks like this: Untitled by Lopoddity .

I remove the blue lines in PS, beef up the contast to make my pencil lines good and dark, and wa-la! Clean lineart using only pencils! :) You can even experiment with line types-dark, soft pencil leads(2B,5B,8B, etc) produce a darker, grainier, more crayon like line, while hard, light pencils (2H, 4H, etc) produce light, smooth lines, which are also easy to erase.

Do you have any advice to give to one that wanted to create their own mlp character?
Lopoddity Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2015  Student Digital Artist
 Think about the character before you put pencil to paper. What are their dreams, their opinions, their fears, their goals in life? What role do they play in the grand story?

Are they a unicorn, a pegasus, or an earth pony? What's their special talent? MLP has lots of "rules" when it comes to character creation. Pegasi normally have weather and flight related abilities, unicorns seem to be the magicians and the artisans, and earth ponies generally have talents related to farming, food, and music. Alicorns are very powerful, with very specific magic. Of course, while these rules are something to be aware of, they can be broken, often to great effect. Bulk Biceps is a pegasus with a talent for weight-lifting, Zecora uses magic, despite not being a unicorn, Cadence doesn't seem very strong for an alicorn, etc...

Don't be afraid of giving your characters flaws. Flaws are important for building relatable characters. For example, Pandora is very powerful and pretty, with a bit of "special snowflake" syndrome going on. If she had no flaws and was simply kind and passive and everything always went her way, she would fall into Mary Sue territory. So I balanced her character by making her highly self-absorbed, insecure, childish, and not all-powerful (more often than not, her plans fail). Do you see? :)

Yup! My go-to song when I'm having a lousy day. :)
Lou-Sifer Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Very easily understood. It's also an amazing song :) And not as strange as some of their other songs ^^

Hey Lopoddity! I'm a huge fan of the Pandoraverse, and I was wondering, how far of an age difference is there between princess Skyla and Pandora? 
Oh and I drew you a little fanart earlier, wasn't sure if you saw it or not >w<

Lopoddity Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Thank you! :) (heading off now to check out that fanart btw)

Skyla is something like 4-5 years older than Pan.
