Awesome work. What is the backstory about that noose?

Noose is her name :D She wears it both as an accesory as an utility item. She is a Guard, and the noose can fill the role of hoofcuffs.

She has two older brothers, name Scaffold and Gallow. Though, of course, they do not wear the item they are named after around their necks...

A pretty mare like her? This is deceptive. And it must be helpful for her in a way.

Yeah. They would be quite... bothering to wear. But these three's names represent punishment. Is there a cousin called Guillotine?

She suffers from social social anxiety, and does not like to be on the spotlight =P 

...uh, no. But shit, that is a good one XD Maybe a name for a maternal grandparent? Hum...

You mean apparently what Fluttershy suffers? And not shyness.

Or a great great uncle called Impaler or Pal? Gosh. Sounds like a family of executioners.

Aye. She prefers to wear a hoodie when outside. The only time she is okay is when she is looking for 'parthners' for the night, as she feels in control of the situation.

You know? You gave me an idea. Originally, I had planned for the father to suggest the names, but I think it makes more sense if it were the mother's idea, specially when regarding to Noose's name.

I'm not entirely sure, this was a commission for another user's character, WidowPeak, and I just followed specs. Maybe he can enlighten us! :)

Okay, now for a more complete comment, since I had to go to work this morning.

Ahem

This is gorgeous, and absolutely worth every cent spent in it. I love everything about it. The fluffy ears, the texture of the noose, and the eyes (Those eyes!Love 

I am curious. What exactly gave you trouble?

Thanks so much, I'm so glad you like how she turned out!

It's not so much that anything gave me trouble exactly, it's more like there was a lot in this piece that I'd never tried before. Like the rope, I had so many references up on nooses and ropes trying to get the twists and texture just right (I think I spent waaaay too much time on just the rope, haha!). And those wings! Bat ponies are really cool, I've been meaning to draw one before (likely Fluttershy XD) but I just never had a chance until now. I had to look up references of how bats and dragon wings looked when they were folded, to try and get the anatomy to look sort of right-ish. One of the things I do a bit differently with these ponies is that even though they're based heavily on the cartoony My Little Pony style, I try to make things like their wings look a touch more realistic, rather than just a bunch of squiggly lines. Sometimes I'm afraid I bite off more than I can chew, and it takes a lot of erasing, and redrawing, and erasing again until I'm satisfied!

Wow that was a block of rambling text! XD Sorry about that, but I hope it answered your question!

I would say you did a perfect job ^^ I am surprised you never drew a batpony before! But yes, the wings are nightmarish :C

I'm impressed that she knows how to tie a noose because she doesn't look half as depressed as I am
