Commission - Dovetail, OC pony by PaintedHoofprints Commission - Dovetail, OC pony by PaintedHoofprints
This was a commission for :iconspiritofthwwolf: of his OC, Dovetail. She's the heroine of his upcoming fanfic called "Pure Hearts", a sidestory to "Fallout Equestria".

Here's the link to where the story will be published on FimFiction: [link]

It's password protected for now because it's not quite ready to be revealed. But save the link, if you're interested in reading it when it is available! I've been granted the privilege of previewing the first few chapters, and I really enjoyed it so far. I'm looking forward to reading more! :)

Nevermind, it's available to be read now! :)

As far as this piece goes, I gotta say it's been my favorite commission to work on so far. I improve so much with each piece of art I do. I really pushed myself hard on this one, and I think it shows. :)

As a side note, I put the feathers in as kind of an artsy whim - she's actually an earth pony, not a pegasus. Just with her name being "Dovetail" I thought... feathers! White feathers! OoOooOOoOOoo.... /crawls back away... I can remove them if they cause too much confusion. ^^;

This is so beautiful... I wish there was a wallpaper version.

Ah well, I guess I'll have to do with this and the theme by ethansight.

Jeez. I can look at her like... forever.
She's so beautiful yet so different from FoE characters. I'm in love with her. And I'm definitely going to read "Pure Hearts" now.

FYI: I dunno, but this images somehow goes perfectly with Eisbrecher - Prototyp track.

I'm glad you like her and hope you like Pure Hearts. If you're unaware though, I am in the process of revising my current chapters while working on the next one.

I just can't stop looking at this O_o
The texture of the coat and the hair and skin is just so perfect.

Beautiful picture, I love the brushwork on her hair :D The expression is complex and compelling... for some reason I keep thinking the "61" on her collar is... more real than the rest of the image, but maybe I'm just silly? :P

Just saw the added bit in the artist comments about the feathers, I've only had one person mention them so far, and I personally like the touch (I actually knew why they were there before you explained it. :)), so I think they're okay!

Oh good. ^^; I didn't even think about them making Dovetail seem like a pegasus, and I was like "oh crap!" But I'm glad you like them. :)

Haha, no worries. It's a stylistic element, that I think was a good thought on your part. Beside, those that actually read the story will know better anyway. :XD:

Kkat is the one who wrote the original Fallout Equestria.

I'm glad Kkat likes it! I'm doing my best to flesh out my own part of the world for my side story while keeping the original's integrity. I'd love to have Kkat's seal of approval on it someday...

Indeed, but I already made the other commission, telling the artist theirs would be the cover art. Then I saw the final of this piece. I'm actually still questioning using this one now, but I'll have to wait and see the other piece when its finished too. :XD:
