Unimaginative title is unimaginative. Haven't really been motivated to draw anything recently, but I happened to get into a discussion with someone on Skype over the look of the Saddle Arabian horses shown on the show. More specifically, how I really did not like how they were designed. Someone then challenged me to try designing one, which inspired me enough to give it a try. I'm actually pleasantly surprised at how he turned out (though I only just now realized he kind of uses Katsuo's hair design, only in a curly variation). Something bugs me about it though...I think maybe the head is too large for the slender body/legs. But I'm not sure. Either way, there's this guy, who may actually get apped in the future. Don't think I'll actually RP him at all if I do, but a character application? Maybe, maybe~
Horse~ I was chatting on a Discord server with a bunch of really good artists, and I felt inspired to try out a slightly less cartoony style of horse drawing-- and only glancing back at a reference maybe twice, I came up with this. And oh my goodness I am soooooo happy with it! ;u; I hope you enjoy it as much as I~
Roleplay Type: World of Equestria Name: Basira El-Amin Sex: Female Age: Older mare Species: Saddle Arabian Horse Eye Color: Vibrant Orange Coat: Very dark brown, khaki-ish color Mane/tail: A flowing mane of pale gold, usually tied up behind her Physique: Well fit but not well muscled, the build of an intellectual who prizes their mind highly but knows the brain still needs a healthy body and regularly exercises. For a saddle arabian this means she is stronger and more durable than the average pony however. Residence: Manephis Occupation: Sultan of Saddle Arabia Cutie mark: N/A Unique traits: Sultan of Saddle Arabia: Has access to the resources of one of the most technologically advanced cultures in the land: Scholarly knowledge: Is very very intelligent and knows a great deal about the history of many lands, but primarily her own. Saddle Arabian Physiology: Like the rest of her species, she has no connection to magic. All her physical strength while above average for most saddle arabian comes soly from her own muscle and work to maintain it. History: Basira was born into a simple family of Fisher-horses who supplied fish for transport out to Aquellia. Even in her youth, the filly had proved to be a scholar in the making; Usually locking herself up in her room at night to fill her mind with the knowledge of all the books she would save up to buy through the weeks in her life. The books of stories collected from all across her land were always her favorites... and one of the things that drove her to begin her digs and searches for many of the lost treasures and traces of the stories and magnificent sights that made her favorite stories so fantastic. As She grew the mare proved to have a lust for knowledge and an ambition that had her land herself into a position among one of the many notable schools of education in Dufly. Thanks to her own ambition and assistance from her parents back down at the shores. Eventually though, this love of knowledge came to inspire her to explore her homeland further and much more intensely than others in her culture had before. Many exploratory and archaeological exploits all around the deserts, mountains and islands that make up her homeland on the maps. Through her many exploits she has made many discoveries that have been shared with the intellectual communities all across Saddle Arabia and even some beyond. Her discoveries in Saddle Arabia had already gained the attention of some Equestrian scholars as well; one of which having lead her to very interesting events; including two foals that have of this time left for Equestria to make their mark on the world there. Then came the time of Debate. The previous Sultan’s ten years were ending a new one was to be chosen unanimously by the most promising candidates in the land. Basira's accomplishments in various fields of study among the highest scholars in Dufly had brought her hear... that and the good will she had with other tribes across the land who had thought their tribes ancient history to be gone from them forever. The talks were incredibly intense, long winded debates that were almost as physically exhausting as it was mentally to speak of the future path of a land as great as Saddle Arabia. The Debate went on even longer than it's usual time thanks to the many promising candidates. Many stallions and mares grew heated and at some points lashed out which only made them realize how they were not ready for this position. It was in the end only Basira who proved both cool headed and knowledgeable about the cultures and histories of their land and had eaned the favor of almost all of the inhabitants in the land… it was decided that She would be the Sultan. Character Summary: Affable and wise is good way to Describe the Sultan. Her love of the knowledge and value of historical and cultural treasure are very well documented. The few times she has ever been known to lose her temper is when discoveries are damaged or broken by irresponsible behavior on anyone’s part… and doing so on purpose is enough to rapidly get you out of her favor. Besides her love of archaeology, She has proven to be fond of martial arts as well. But instead of those who practice it as a form of self defense, she does it primarily as a form of meditation to calm and focus her mind; with all the responsibilities she has been having thrust upon her since taking her place in Manephis it has proven to be incredibly helpful. Part of what has spurred her interest in archaeology since she was a small horse was the many legends passed around in her culture; A tale of one thousand and one nights of wonder. Because of where she grew up and where she was born (the shores and ports of Dubfly); The Sultan has a very VERY low opinion of pirates and many ships or airships that leave her shores tend to have extra protection. The town of Puerto Aguila is often monitored and watched often and any city near water or that has been plagued by sky pirates in the past is usually subject to entire walls covered by wanted posters that are updated daily. There are many things that Basira has learned to do in her life but some skills she seemed to be literally incapable of improving. Her lack of skill in this area being bad enough that she is unable to cook anything simpler than the simplest of sandwiches… one incident she doesn't talk about in the Dufly academy’s dining hall has made so that the cooks even she hired herself encourage her not to be near the food at any point during preparation. While Basira is very happy with her life she does occasionally feel slightly unfulfilled as one of the myths she had hoped to uncover since she was small has still never been found.. But she rarely speaks of what that myth was to anyone but her most trusted allies and advisers.
Name: Jade Sex: Female Age: Mare Species: Horse Eye Color: Various shades of deep green Coat: Solid flat black Mane/Tail: Both mane and tail are cropped short though she keeps her forelocks long to frame her face. Her locks are coal black with a few wisps of deep green around the tips. Physique: She is fit and well muscled, ready for action at a moment’s notice. She works hard to keep herself in tip top shape. She balances her strength with flexibility to create a lithe body structure overall. Residence: Formerly an encampment on the outskirts of the Petite Desert near Wakr. She now holds a small and quite secretive residence in Seaddle. Occupation: Go between for a smuggling trade between Equestria and Saddle Arabia. Leader of a ring of gem smugglers. Works for WRAITH as a spy when the pay is right. Cutie Mark: NA Unique Traits: Jade is a master of camouflage and spy tactics. These were enforced through years of dedicated training. She can move undetected through even the most scrutinized fields by adopting the techniques that were instilled through her life learned art form. These skills have been put to the test in the field as a lead in many smuggling operations. She is also skilled in short range combat and is able to dispatch an enemy silently and swiftly with lock techniques as well as skills with her blades. History: They say that fortune favors the brave, but this was not the case with the father of the small black foal. Though he had been in the confidence of the Ring Leader, to the point of fathering a child with her, he could not be trusted with his secrets. Ibis, Keeper of Gems, ordered the dispatch of her mate as if on a whim. The mare was never one to be trifled with. He had asked for too much, seen too much, it had been his time to leave. Though he had been the key to many a successful raid and had added much power to the smuggling ring known as ENIGMA, it was over all too quickly. Ibis raised her young filly to look after herself. Someday Jade would take over ENIGMA as the Keeper of Gems. She would lead with the same prowess that her mother did. Ibis made all the arrangements. Jade was tutored by some of the brightest minds in Saddle Arabia. she was sent to Saddlelon to be instructed in the arts of philosophy and wisdom. The young filly gained knowledge in leaps and bounds during these early days. She was never without a longing in her heart for her mother and father, though she was not to know either intimately. As time went on she hardened her heart to these thoughts, steeling herself to a life of self preservation above all else. Ibis allowed her daughter to come to her own conclusions on her training. She would need not only the ability to out think opponents but also to be calculating in dealing with those that might oppose her. Jade traveled form the desert encampment to compound in the mountain ranges of the Petite Deserts. She would stay in this compound for many years, learning at the hooves of a master marital artist. The master of the compound, instructed Jade until she entered her mare years. By this time she had discovered many secrets of the art form including camouflage, stealth, and short range combat. Jade specialized in stealth, mastering each lesson brought before her. When the time was right she was awarded with the weapon she had trained with for many years. Jade returned to her mother’s secret encampment, determined to take the position of leadership she had been honed for. Ibis was pleased with the way her daughter had turned out, but was unwilling to give up her seat of authority. Jade took a cold edge to her mother. She had been brought up away from home, away from a caring mother. It was as if all Ibis wanted was to manufacture the perfect mare to take over ENIGMA. Now she had what she had wanted and she was not willing to give up her position? Jade began to conspire against her mother soon after. It took several months but it was not long before Jade had unseated her mother and taken her place of power. She began to amass a wealth of her own. Along with her new found wealth she gained prestige in greater Saddle Arabia as a mare of power and position. She also held a notorious reputation in the smuggling world. Over time these worlds began to collide. After a particularly close event, Jade's true identity as the Keeper of Gems was close to being revealed. The mare left her second in command in charge of the Saddle Arabian ring of ENIGMA and moved to Equestria. The Emerald of Equestria seemed the perfect fit for the leader of a smuggling ring. There was much to be gained from the commerce of Seaddle and Jade would have her share! She quickly set up headquarters for herself in a small warehouse deep in the downtown district of the city. From here she commenced setting up a new ring. As her dealings with the underbelly of society increased it did not take long for her to catch wind of WRAITH. The organization fit the bill perfectly. She could run her ring and come under the protection of a larger organization that could provide her with allies. Working for WRAITH would allow her to make new ties and strengthen relationships that could someday become very useful to her pursuits. Character Summary: Jade is a mare with a calculating mind and a cut throat mentality. She appears as a mare full of grace and poise to the public eye, often gracing events with her presence as a community service. She is quite skilled in leading a double life, especially since making a mistake in the past that almost cost her everything. She is a smooth talker and often leaves stallions fumbling for words. Because of her fortunes she is able to quickly make a name for herself as a public figure which she uses to her advantage. However, her beauty is only skin deep. Jade is a mare out for herself in all matters. She will do whatever is necessary to create personal gain and keep herself from harm's way. She can become aggressive when driven to it and will not allow another to wrong her without recompense. Jade, like her mother, is not a mare to be trifled with.
