My Little Pony-Dragons: Derpy by HowManyDragons My Little Pony-Dragons: Derpy by HowManyDragons
Allll right! I think it's time for some more pony-dragons, so I'm going to kick things off with my very first background pony - Derpy! Given the manner in which I make my dragons, I couldn't really do the off-kilter eye thing, but I hope the somewhat discombobulated pose makes up for it. Her gray body is a custom mix of my own (turns out a little black goes a long way), and unlike most of my dragons, I decided to varnish her in satin glaze instead of gloss. I do prefer the glossy look in-person, but satin glaze certainly makes for nicer pictures! Derpy might have the easiest cutie mark aside from Rarity - translucent clay makes awesome bubbles.

Derpy has been sold, but you can still see additional photos at her Etsy listing.

Yes, pony-dragons are a thing:

Is Derpy a real pony?
Reply
:iconhowmanydragons:
HowManyDragons Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2014
Yes, the name is fan-given, but she's a background pony that shows up in a lot of the MLP:FiM episodes. Here's some more info if you're interested.

Thanks! She's one of the background ponies, so she doesn't have any speaking parts (except for a few lines in one episode), but I think she has a cameo appearance in just about every episode.

You've improved so much in such a short time! Hope she goes to a good home, she looks great :) I'd start trying to be a bit more careful with fingerprints now though?
Reply
:iconhowmanydragons:
HowManyDragons Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013
Thanks for the comment! TBH, I don't really see the fingerprints as a negative - they almost act as a signature, reinforcing the handmade nature of my work. Also, I think that they are more noticeable in my photos than when looking at the figurines IRL, as my camera likes to pick up every irregularity/speck of dust.

That being said, I realize that fingerprints show more prominently on some of my pieces than others. I think it's due to working with clay that's too soft, but that I was too impatient to leach to a stiffer consistency. Patience and foresight is something that I'm trying to work on! :)

she looks awesome - Derpy is the only pony I ever mashed up into a dragon but I wasn't happy with the result so she sits on my aptly named 'derp' shelf. :D
