This isn't intended as a "show off your new OC" thread, though you may proudly show off your fresh OC at the end of the process. Rather, this is the thread to discuss potential future OCs during the description development stage and ask for feedback.

If it's an NSFW attribute, shove it behind a spoiler.

The community collab is once again upon us, and I realized that I never had any desire or need to make a pony OC. I normally borrow canon characters for my MySpace pics. As cool as it would be to have an Ursa Maritimus OC, that wouldn't fit in the community collab guidelines.

Well, I'm trying to work on a design for an older version of an existing OC of mine, Demon Hellspawn.

This older version didn't age naturally, he was accidentally ages up with magic and thrust into a backalley. Note that he was also created with magic, a magical gay spawn of a zombie and a siren, and his body reflects that, his diet is carnivorous, and his organs frequently give him issues, so he experiences a lot of pain at times, or just plain issues. He also has a speech impediment and can't talk very well, so he usually opts not to. He's also homeless, and already quite jaded to the world as a result of that and because his only memories of his parents are negative ones, as vague as they are. He wants to find them and confront them, but he's hopeless stuck on the streets with nothing to his name. My issue is that the design doesn't feel adult enough compared to his baby form. Also his cutie mark is fake, he cant get that, that's just a scar he gave himself.

I've had two ideas for myself for show-style OCs. The similarity is that they are both percussionists.

1. A male antelope of some kind
Why antelope?
* Horns are permanent, so there is no question of what happens to his magic when he sheds his antlers like there would be if he were a member of the cervine family.
* Antelope naturally have a balanced pair of horns, which makes playing cross grip on the vibes much easier than a unicorn splitting their telekinesis between two pairs of mallets. More importantly, he's not a two-horned unicorn OC (and the horns of two-horned rhinos don't make sense for playing mallet percussion)
* As an even-toed ungulate, he can use the gap within each hoof to hold a drumstick if he wants to play physically rather than telekinetically.
Open questions:
a. What is his name?
b. Which species of antelope?
c. Coat coloration?

2. A female pegasus
Her signature sound is wide arpeggios on the marimba (she tucks the mallets between her feathers). Her cutie mark is three mallets arranged into the Roman numeral IV. Again, she needs a name and colors.

Unrelated, but I wonder if anyone has ponified Miguel the Unicorn from the Red Diamond Dragon Club (both links are videos with suggestive imagery and NSFW dialogue).

Aight I can occasionally help you out with the art department. But help out only. Might want some other dude doing the coloring, inking, vectoring, render or finishing touches.
Ie. I can do the sketch. I need the practice, anyway.

Speaking of names, there aren't too many pronounceable strings in the below list of patterns in a four-mallet warmup I enjoy.
Aefefc Cfefea
Bfgfgd Dgfgfb
Cgagae Eagagc
Dababf Fbabad
Ebcbcg Gcbcbe
Fcdcda Adcdcf
Gdedeb Bededg


Perhaps Cfefea could be the name for the pegasus. The c is silent like the c in cnidarian or the p in pterodactyl. She feels like she needs a second name in her full name to fit with binomial pony nomenclature. However, I cannot remember if Moon_raker_ or Moon_walker_ was the name of the warmup exercise in which I found her name.

All the other patterns, even the ones with vowels in pronounceable positions, sound more like something you'd throw into the zalgo generator in a horror story than a name for an antelope.
