Background mares thread?
>>37 Background mares are pretty cool. They've got a whole story outside the show that we don't know about. When was the first time you started to really notice the mares in the background?

>>37 roseluck still gets some of the best art drawn of her, even if I don't understand the slav speak
>>153 There's some decent Russian artists around. Pic rel has some good stuff.
>>153 >Rose, that's not a toy! There's like one guy who insists that ponies should be non-sentient pets, and has drawn literally hundreds of images of Roseluck being a pet with about dog-level intelligence.

>considerable lack of derpy
(143.54 KB 1400x1462 616.jpg)
>>175 Is Derpy even a background mare? I mean technically she is, but given her popularity, I never think of her as one. She feels like she's a secondary character. Same with Lyra, kind of, though Lyra is just slightly less popular to the point where in my mind it's borderline between her being her own secondary character, or being a background pony but the most popular background pony. Like the mascot of the background ponies.
>>183 I don't like to get caught up in the philosophy of what makes a background mare a background mare, just want to post cute ponies in the background
>>188 I know they pretty extensively used her as an easter egg. Personally I never really managed to catch any of these instances myself. Maybe one day I should go through and look them up. Have a cute Derp.

Why are background mares so good? I find it hard to care about the Mane 6 anymore

>>39 When I first started watching.
(330.81 KB 1873x2069 2834060.png)
>>306 It's probably because as the series went on the Mane 6 act less and less like friends, and more and more like therapists. To stay on topic, have a Cloudchaser.

>>1367 I always liked Inuhoshi's early work.
(1.47 MB 1883x1022 art10018.png)
>>162 >There's some decent Russian artists around. True. But it seems many rot their brains with furfaggotry. Their pony forms degrade and they start churning out soulless arts as fast as possible. Hard to believe these pics are by same artist.
>>1473 Isn't this guy some kind of ukranian or something?
>>1475 I believe Yakovled-vad is full Russian.
>>1473 Yakovlev sold his soul for a dollar. He isn't a true Russian anymore.
>>1475 Possible. But I thought he was from Saint Petersburg.
>>1476 >>1478 Huh, fair enough
>>1473 It's always strange to see someone get worse over time. >Russian artists Don't really know many, but pic rel are some that were saved from some Russian imageboard. Don't know if the artist is actually Russian though.

Is Fleetfoot considered a background pony? More like a background wonderbolt, but other than that, she has about the same amount of speaking lines as most other background ponies. >>1473 Somewhere inbetween both styles would be the sweet spot, but I like them both personally.
>>1484 R A R E These are allegedly part of a comic with an extremely unique artstyle, but last I checked (a couple of years ago) nobody had managed to assemble the full comic yet.
>>1484 >>1486 Interesting. While I don't know who to reference on the hard angles, something about the eyes and muzzle suggest influences from KP_Shadowsquirrel. The watercolors scream The-Wizard-of-Art
>>1486 >nobody had managed to assemble the full comic yet. Fascinating. Got any more info on that or is it genuinely that R A R E? >with an extremely unique artstyle It's kind of neat. I have to wonder if it's done traditionally because it has that sort of look.
>>1488 >if it's done traditionally I'd almost assume that it is, that kind of look would be extremely difficult to replicate digitally I'd believe.

I was pleasantly surprised that my random Silverspeed thread survived for a while on /mlp/ so here she is debuting on NHNB because now I have a bunch of pics of her.

>>2979 Not really, she's seen training with the pegasi in Hurricane Fluttershy and doing weather management in Tanks For the Memories and that's it as far as I know. Her cutie mark's a bow and arrow, it would have been cool to see her competing at the Equestria Games or something.
>>2980 Cool. I was just wondering because of the one screencap of her out of focus. Would have been kind of funny if that had been the only appearance.
(266.61 KB 1800x1676 2119088.png)
>>2978 It's kind of strange that she gets so much less fan attention than the other pegasi from Hurricane Fluttershy. Rainbow Dash even calls her by name in the episode.

>>1473 Sorry to ask, perhaps it's obvious to everyone but me, but what's wrong with the second image, exactly? Just seems like they started going for a more cartoony look using chunks of hair rather than individual strands, in order to be able to make art faster, to make more mares more fastly. What, does the presence of chest floof immediately make someone a terrible artist or something? I'm asking because I have drawn some stuff, and I don't want to make some terrible mistake that I think is just a simplification in art style, and have everyone start calling me a furfaggot for it.
>>3486 He's being called a furfag not for that, but for "art" that would be against rules for posting here. But the newer image is clearly inferior to the older one. If he hadn't previously created arts like the one on the left, I doubt anyone would criticise him for the one on the right.
>>3486 Unless you only care about money, there is no reason to prioritise speed to such a degree. And the flatness of the second image goes way beyond the simpler texturing.
>>3486 Yakovlev also draws controversial pony anatomy. Specifically, look at the torso: there is absolutely zero belly. The lower torso and hips have been called dog-like, which is honestly no unjustified given that, as the other anon said, this is in fact a furry artist. To be fair, the image on the right has the same weird anatomy, so this is more of a critique of Yakovlev in general.

>>306 >I find it hard to care about the Mane 6 anymore Same, maybe the shit wrting through the later seasons made them unlikeable to me.
>>3863 I understand that feeling, but a rewatch of season 1 mostly removes it from me. But after they have been put through years of constant discreditation, it will never feel entirely the same. It's a testament to the immense strength of their original characterisation that I don't simply hate them after the insulting directions the franchise went in.
>>170 I love Roseluck with all my heart, but I can't stand the pet shit. If it was a roleplay fetish thing I wouldn't care, but she's not even a pony at this point. She's a retarded cat in the shape of a horse.

>>13019 I wasn't banned from /mlp/, but I migrated here for similar reasons. /mlp/ is being co-opted by alphabet soup ideologues. Wish this place was faster too, but I think it will eventually pick up as more pony enjoyers realize /mlp/ is a lost cause. After that, the freaks will probably come for nhnb next. Anyway, welcome and have a Rose.

Have you ever managed to get an artfag to make a response to your thread? It is the most lovely feeling in the world. A simple thread for a simple mare, and I got this image for a modicum of effort for just a bit of writefagging a while back. I have this image backed up across many of my media devices. She may not be a pone here, but she is a cute as a gryph too. Come to mention it, there used to be a lot of gryph versions of ponies back in the early days of the fandom, but for one reason or another they have disappeared. Pity, but I'll take what I can get.
>>13180 >Have you ever managed to get an artfag to make a response to your thread? It is the most lovely feeling in the world. Had me thinking for a moment, but yeah. Always an incredible feeling when you've managed to inspire someone else with something you've done. Though more often I'm the one that's getting inspired by someone else.
I dug up one of my old posts from a year and a half back, but I think it checks out. Have at it. >Be Roseluck. >Be out and about in the meadows outside Ponyville. Today was your vacation. Away from the hustle and bustle of the busy town life. Away from the distractions and chaos brought about by those six, certain ponies. You were no prodigy, a master magician capable of wielding magics the likes of which you could only dream of in your sleep. You were no artisan, weaving silk and words with equal deftness with her magic that brought all the high socialites to your hooves. You were no flier, bobbing and weaving through the clouds like it was none of your business, leaving all else in the dust behind your magic rainboom. You were no friend of nature, despite your closeness to your flowers, so in tune with the animals of the world that they held to your every whim and you in turn to theirs. You were no great worker of the farm, bucking apples day in and day out with nary a sweat, with the strength to match it in the daylight sun. You were no friend to all, a weaver of parties that brought joy to all who came to them. No, you were none of these things. But that was alright. You were just Roseluck, just another pony who got on with her day just as any other as you tended to your flowers. Just one of many in the crowd, but that suited you just fine. For you did not have to worry about saving the world, managing the headaches of worldly threats, beating back invasions, or any of that other nonsense those six involved themselves in a day to day basis it seemed these days. You were just *you*, and in this field of flowers and butterflies in the waning sun and rising moon, you would not have it any other way.
>>14057 Very cute Anon. Background ponies may have less serious tasks, but they are still important nonetheless.

Here's a Roseluck green I wrote a while back. >"Knock! Knock! Knock!". >Roseluck banged on Anon's door harder this time since he didn't answer to the previous tapping. >No answer >"Anon, are you in there?" "Go away!" >Roseluck recoiled in surprise and hurt. >"B-But you said you would come to the picnic with my sisters and me. We made your favorite food, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and..." "No! I'm too grumpy!" >Roseluck gasped. It was more serious than she thought. Now she definitely had to help Anon >"We could go tend to my rose garden instead...if you like." she cooed. >A moment of silence. Roseluck was hopeful since Anon loved her rose garden, and tending to it. "Tempting, but no! I'm way too grumpy! I'm even too grumpy for ice cream with rainbow sprinkles!" >Roseluck was aghast, but she was resolved to help him. >She steeled her nerves, spun around and bucked as hard as she could. >Anon's door shattered into a million splinters and Roseluck trotted, with a beaming smile, into the dark room. "Gah! Hsssss!" exclaimed Anon, shielding his face from the outdoor light with an arm. >"Don't worry, Anon. I'm here to help you!" said Roseluck brightly. "Nah! Go away! There's no force in Equestria that can un-grumpify me, nothing!" He said with a decisive hand gesture. >Roseluck, knew better and giggled. This would be easy. >"Well, what about this!" >With that she began scrunching her nose repeatedly in the most adorable manner. "What?! No! Ah! Stop that! Curses!" >Anon retreated into the dark of the room but Roseluck pressed on, scrunching all the more. "Quit it! No! Noooooo!" >Sensing the opportunity, Roseluck made a final scrunch with all her might. >A wave of power surged through the room from the scrunch. >The curtains flew open and sunlight shone in. Anon, was tossed like a rag doll over the sofa. >Luckely his hoard of marshmallows behind the sofa broke his fall. >For a moment there was silence. >Roseluck looked on in hopeful anticipation. >Finally, a hand came up and gripped the back of the sofa, dramatically of course, and Anon stood up. >He was rubbing his head. "Whoa!" "Are you ok, Anon?" she said, biting her lower lip. "Yeah! Actually, I feel...great! The grumpiness, it's gone completely!" >Roseluck grinned and clapped her hooves together. "How'd I get like that?" >"The grumpiness always comes in slowly, Anon. Bit by bit it takes over until you're just not yourself any more. "Gee, Roseluck. Thank you!" >"Your friends are always here for you, Anon! Wanna go to the picnic now?" "Of course! Let's go! >Roseluck trotted out the door, leading the way, with Anon skipping happily beside her.
>>16195 very cute, nice job!
>>16195 >Anon's marshmallow hoard Kek. Imagine if they are all in a loose pile instead of in bags and he just reaches back there, picks them up, and eats them while sitting on the couch.
>>16248 >Loose pile of marshmallows That's kind of how I imagined it when I was writing the story. Mostly, I needed something so that Anon wouldn't get hurt when he flew through the air and landed on the other side of the sofa.
>>16253 That's so fucking dingy; no wonder he got grumpy! Good thing Rose cheered him up.
