Jigsaw Puzzle by TheAntimonyElement Jigsaw Puzzle by TheAntimonyElement
What am I doing with my life.

Here, have a Jigsaw Puzzle, "Puzzle" for short. I've been wanting to throw her up here for ages, considering that she has been literally the only thing I've doodled in a worrisomely long time. Maybe when I get a chance I'll put together a proper ref sheet for her.

I know we've only seen one spotty pony in canon so far (Pipsqueak, holla), but what can I say, I'm a sucker for piebald! Not to mention that gypsy vanners are my favorite horse breed, so Puzzle's (very loosely) based on them.

Her cutie mark is a winged shooting star. Her special talent is problem-solving. Puzzle works as a courier and spends her time travelling all over Equestria, being a general wander-bug. She loves flying, reading, flying, stargazing, flying, flying, birds, and meeting people. And flying.

. . .

...I needed this. Badly. And I don't mean the pony so much as the fact that it has been a terribly, terribly long time since I have *made* anything. Or anything creative, at least. It's awful. I've been flat on my rump with work, studying harder than I ever have before, and it still isn't enough. I'm ok, but I didn't realize how much of an impact it would have on me, emotionally, to not be able to take time off for art or writing. Creating beautiful things heals me. I could use some healing right about now. This. Felt. Amazing. To Make. Life is kinda ok right now. ^^

Love yas. :iconbrohoof1plz::iconbrohoof2plz:

"...and flying, and flying, and flying. Did I mention flying?" XD
I take it this is your pony-sona?

Glad to see you're staying creative with what little time you do have! ^^

Haha, how could you tell? XD Yep, this is my pony-sona...it took me forever to settle on her design, too. I was afraid she was too many colors, but...but...! Well. I like her, and she's lots of fun to draw. :3 Ponies have kept me sane lately, it was great to do this in full color! ;P

Hurray for sanity! XD I really like her design! She turned out great! The colors work well, and you've kept them bright without over-saturating them. Her patterns add interest and fit her name too! ^^ Is there any significance behind her cutie mark btw?

Thank you! I'm really glad you think so. :3 I want to do a quick full-body ref for her to set out her patterns, since I took some liberties with the gradients here. As for her cutie mark...it took me forever to settle on one, but I really like this one. I knew I needed something about wings, since, um, me ( ;P ) but I also really wanted to work in something about stars or space. And I've always had a special love of shooting stars, and I tend to be kind of lucky...so I though, hey, winged shooting star! :D I dunno, maybe it's not too "Puzzle"-y, but I really liked it and thought it fit. :heart:

It does fit! I kinda like the idea of a pony's name matching her appearance but not necessarily her cutie mark. I mean, if they don't have them as fillies however could they be named something that matches their cutie mark perfectly? X3
