Well. 'Bout time I did this. Considering Zap is my ponysona, I don't draw her anywhere near enough. I've drawn small refs for most of my OC's, but not Zap, so I thought that I should probably put something together, if nothing else, it saves me sending about five different pictures of her to people who draw her for commissions or requests or prizes or whatever.
I've been going through my OC's, and I've decided to make proper, big reference sheets for them, like this one.
She's pictured as an adult, a filly of about nine or ten, and as a young foal. Each with 'stylised' and 'normal' versions. The former is with all the racial features and what not, The latter more similar to the show, so no racial features, and also more show similar eyes. Which I haven't drawn in a while. There aren't many differences. But I thought it'd be nice to see how she looks in both styles. I'll also be drawing my other ponies like that too.
It did feel a bit strange drawing her without her racial features, since I'm so used to seeing her with them now. Still. It made a nice change
I need to work on Crusader age pony anatomy. Since it's still a bit rough. I think I may have made them too small here, but hey ho. It'll do for now. Please let me know what you think of the layout of the picture above.
I want to know if I should stick with something like this, or make some changes. The fonts will change on other refs to match the character. Well, the lightningy font will anyway
Or at least. That's the idea..
Anyway. Onto the actual bio bit. There's a little on the image itself. But all the rest is below. I may add more in the future. But for now. This is all I got.Name:

Feeling left out. Having too much to do and not enough time to do it. Being unable to fly. Lacking inspiration to draw or write. Talking to large crowds of ponies that she doesn't know. Being blamed for doing nothing wrong. Not being listened too. Wearing dresses, or any kind of 'girly' clothes.Skills:
A talented artist and budding author. Fast and agile flyer.Weaknesses:
Can be very shy around new ponies, and sometimes struggles to make new friends, has a tendency to worry too much about upcoming events and will often convince herself that something bad will happen. Isn't a very organised pony and is not very good at keeping to deadlines.Abilities:
Slightly higher resistance to electricity than other ponies. And thus, is often tasked with moving storm clouds whilst working.Other Things:
Kind and caring and, when in the right mind-set, can be very hard-working, though she can be easily distracted. Is usually very patient, but doesn't like it when ponies test her patience by making excuses. Often has far too much free time on her hooves, and ends up spending far too much time drawing and playing games. Can be very competitive, especially when playing games with friends. Is good friends with Hazel Nut, whom she jokingly calls her 'baby', despite him being older than her. Born in Ponyville, but attended Cloudsdale flight school as a filly. Hufflepuff. 12 1/2 inch, English Oak, Dragon Heartstring core wand. Her favourite animal is the Cheetah, though she doesn't really know why. Was quite late to get her cutie mark, with it finally appearing in her early teens. Has a bit of a 'love/hate' relationship with her younger sister. She was born with yellow hair, though as she got older, blue started to grow into it.
Being my ponysona, Zap is very much like me, her personality is very similar, her likes and dislikes and all that. She's a bit of a tomboy, and is a million miles away from being a 'girly girl'. Just like me. (Hoodies and trackies, no make-up and a quick brush through my hair is fine thanks..) I did make some changes. She is a bit older than me, she has a job.., and I obviously didn't go to a flight school. I've been a student at two schools in my life. And for the time being it'll stay that way, unless I go to uni.. The bit about her hair changing colour is somewhat similar to me, when I was little, my hair was blonde, but as I've gotten older, it's naturally turned darker, now it's brown. I've never dyed my hair. It's just changed on it's own. Though it isn't streaked like Zap's is.
She also shares my birthday. I'll be giving most of my OC's birthdays now, since I think it adds a little more character to them. So watch out for that
I put Hufflepuff and my wand from Pottermore in her bio, not sure why, I just felt like putting it there
Baby Zap is so cute :3 Note: 'Skills' is things like cutie mark talent, unless it's something a little more unusual, and any other talents the pony may have. 'Abilities', is things that the pony is born with, in Zap's case, higher resistance to lighting than other ponies. The cutie mark talent can be registered under abilities, though it probably won't happen much, and I can only think of one OC of mine where this applies.
But yeah, not much else to say really. Other than I hope you like and please fav and comment.
Zap belongs to me.
