Pony OC - Tinder by merrypaws Pony OC - Tinder by merrypaws
Just a color test of my dragon-pony. I didn't want to make him look like a Spike's half-brother, but purple was the color that I originally imagined him as, and it still seems to be the only color that suits him.

Like I mentioned in the description of the earlier sketchdump where he appeared, I actually came up with Tinder, or some proto-form of him, way back when I was a kid watching the original MLP series. Back then, he had amazing magical powers and was the High Lord of an ancient dragonian order of knights, despite being only half-dragon. (Come on, I was, like, six or seven.)

Now, I'm thinking he probably doesn't have much magic to speak of, despite being technically a unicorn. On the flipside, he can breathe fire and has wings like dragons do, and he's bigger and a lot stronger than most ponies.

Maybe I should draw his parents too.

Ive wanted to draw him for quite a while, I just wanted to ask if it was ok with you? I know most artist love fanart but I wasn't sure, I just want to make sure its ok.

just so u know, a cross between a dragon and a pony(usually a unicorn) is called a kirin/qilin

Sorry, but no it isn't. Ki-rin is a completely different creature, that just happens to be described as resembling a dragon-horse, though it isn't related to either.

Well, given that Spike is still a baby, it wouldn't, not for a while, at least. But once he grows up a little... *evil giggle*

Very nice. :3 I like the little dragon on the shield, and it's skinny little legs! Haha! Ever plan on shading?
Subtle gradient is subtle.

Like I said, just a color test. I wasn't planning on going to places with this.
