Grasswhistle Geared Up by CaineScroll Grasswhistle Geared Up by CaineScroll
Something I did to kill time. And by time I mean almost an entire day. But meh, details.

This time I designed an outfit for :iconrenaturnip:'s OC, Grasswhistle. I kinda fell in love with her after seeing *SoulSpade's rendition of her, and by *ahem* coincidence I needed a couple of ponies to model for me anyway. So I was like "why not?" and went with it.

To be honest, I'm not even sure what genre I'm aiming for anymore; it seems like a big mashup of styles. The biggest difficulty encountered while designing this was the colouring process; it was hard to come up with a good colour scheme, and adding black only simplified the process instead of thoroughly solving it. I have to admit I'm a little embarrassed at that. :blushes:

That's all folks! I'll be in my turnip-proof bomb shelter if y'all need me. :meow:

PS: It's probably obvious enough, but the three sub-lenses on the goggles are a nod to Corvo's spyglass in Dishonored. I can't finish one picture without putting a reference somewhere in there, sob~

I can't tell you how much I love all the neat and vibrant details you are able to cram in.

That is a very, very good design and color scheme for a pony to begin with, and you really showed her off with your pose and costume design here. Needless to say I love the goggles, but I also really like the knots in the metal accents on her outfit, and the wings on her hind legs. Phenomenal!

I'm glad you like the design, as well as those goggles (no points for originality though)! As for the wings on her boots, there's actually a dA emoticon that looks pretty similar to it :damphyr:...thank you nonetheless! =D

Awww this is so incredibly cute... what a lovely picture, and such a fabulously sweet gesture on your part; Rena certainly is entirely deserving of such a kind gift! Despite the fact that I'm not usually very into OC ponies as you know, I do think Grasswhistle is a very well-designed character, and certainly you have done a great job with her here. The outfit does suit her somehow, and once again I love the attention to detail throughout; the goggles in particular came out very well in this picture in my own opinion. Lovely dear, and kudos to you for being such a thoughtful friend! :aww:

Haha, Rena's a real quackjob alright (in a totally adorable way :meow:), and it was really fun to draw Grasswhistle for her! I really liked how the clothes turned out in this picture; not really fantasy-orientated, but I suppose it gets the job done. Thanks for stopping by! ^_^

You are always welcome of course, it really is my pleasure whenever I can manage it!

She looks wonderfull! :D
BTW the outfit reminds me more to Final Fantasy... not sure why
CaineScroll Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I did think of Dishonored, Norse mythology, steampunk and maybeee a bit of Kingdom Hearts, but surprisingly no Final Fantasy. I appreciate the compliments, though, thanks! =)

Oh yeah, all those too
And welcome!
