Paint Brush


Odyssey

  • Age: 22

    Gender: Female

    Species: Unicorn

    Personality: <p> Cheerful and eager to learn, Paint Brush is a rising painter who wishes to become like her idols one day. If there isn't something about art she hasn't learned about art yet, she goes straight into it, whether it be a painting technique or learning about a historical painter. Her passion for painting reflects her home studio accurately - messy, unorganised, full of unopened things for backup, paint all over the floors and walls (she sometimes likes to "play" with her paint and it implodes on her, her studio reflects her messiness accurately too). </p> <p> She's kind of got a one-track mind that makes it hard to focus on other things. Her clumsiness and forgetfulness don't help either. If she wants to create a new masterpiece, she stays up all night. If she's late for something, she looks like as if she got out of bed. Her biased thinking got her in trouble more than it ever helped her. But she doesn't give up either. On the flip side, if she wants to help a friend in need, she will do it, and she will know when she's taking it too far. Her stubbornness is a double-edged sword on the situation. It can either humiliate her or help her. </p> <p> Her love for art extended to her love for Equestrian culture and its history. She loves the mythology, the fashion, the music, the, well, art. She hopes to travel to other kingdoms one day and meet all of the different races there are. She also loves scarves and insects. </p>

    Backstory: <p> The best phrase one pony can describe her fillyhood is "the pony next door." She grew up a simple but easy life in Ponyville with her parents, had a normal school life, made friends and was mostly a very happy filly. She never truly cared about what her cutie mark would be, so as long as it appeared as soon as it could. The moment she found that her destiny was to become a painter, she already was right into the art industry. She got an easel for her birthday soon after, and could name historical painters instinctively, like Pablo Picoltso, as well as certain historical artworks like The Birth of Pegasus. </p> <p> Probably the biggest challenge of being a painter for Paint is that there's always someone out there who is better than her. And her time in her art college was the worst of it. In hindsight, she wouldn't have learned half the things she was taught there and is very thankful for it, but the emotion part of it never made is any less hard. She was an average student here, in sharp contrast to her consistent good grades back in high school. Her teachers were a lot more analytical and had higher expectations of her, compared to her friends and parents who told her art was amazing. The one thing that she neglected to do at most of her time in her college and was holding her back was to make friends there - she was far too focused on the competitive side of things. And meeting her best friend there made things better for Paint. Learning advanced painting techniques from her friend, and Paint's friend learning not to give up on her dreams from her, both of them graduated and kept in touch, even when they lived in different places. </p> <p> Paint has now returned to Ponyville and has set up her painting studio just recently. It's starting off small, but it has not gone unnoticed by the townsponies. </p>

She looks like she could be in Button Mash’s family.

Heh, you think? She does look like she could be Button's mom's long lost sister actually.
