Hello again everypony! i hope the year has started off with a bang for everyone so far, and as i had such a wonderful reaction and helpful contributions when i asked for people's OC's to be possible background ponies in my upcoming webcomic Equestria's Dawn, i thought i'd put out another call - this time, i need your help in designing some ponies! One particular arc of the story features our favourite bothersome pesky parasprites (no more spoilers), and within the township they're terrorizing, dwell a large family of ponies. Now we have the Apple family, and the Pie family and the Orange family. But i need YOUR help designing the Bee family. Now the Bee family is a large family of ponies all based on our lovely honey-making buzzing little stripey friends, mostly to assist in raising awareness of how drastic the situation has become globally for bees in general - without bees to spread pollen and create honey, our environment is in danger. without bees, we can just about kiss the plant goodbye. personally, i adore bees, because all they want to do is their jobs - getting stung is usually a result of either mishandling or accidental intrusion of their personal space - it's more a defense mechanism for them; after all - if you were as small as them, wouldn't you want to protect yourself from being sat or stood on? So in this endeavour, i have decided that the Bee family, who are all bee keepers themselves, will play a generous role in Equestria's Dawn - I've had some ideas for a few of the family members, but as with the background ponies, i'm in need of assistance to design much of the family. Here are some characters i already have established, but not designed further than very rough sketches: QUEENIE BEE - head of the Bee family, she's the literal matriarch as all the other ponies in the family are her children. she's a very mature, stately and grand pony who carries herself with dignity and with grace, respected by all the townsfolk as something of the town mayor, though she doesn't personally hold the title. Queenie has a gentle heart but is firm and steadfast in her beliefs. HONEY BEE - Queenie's eldest daughter, about the same age as the main characters (late teens); she is a sweet and kind pony, but strongly defensive of her home and younger siblings, and fiercely loyal to her mother. BUMBLE BEE - Queenie's eldest son, Honey's younger brother. He means well but is often very clutzy - however when it comes to defending his family, he's a reliable and studious pony who's never afraid to stand up for himself and his siblings. BEESWAX - the grandfather figure of the family, Queenie's aging father and retired head of the family. He's often laughed at by other ponies for his silly ways and outlandish stories, but he pays them no heed (usually because he can't actually hear anything...). Mostly deaf, always smiling away obliviously. ------ I know there are almost 20,000 different species of bees, but as the Bee family is mostly made of up young/average ponies and fillies and colts, i'm really only planning on having up to about 7-8 main, named family members, and maybe up to 15 or so others as fillers. They'd all follow similar, bee-related colour schemes (yellow/orange and black/brown), in varying different tones and coat designs. Which is, my friends, you come in. If you'd like to design a member of the Bee family (be it Queenie, Honey, Bumble, Beeswax or any of the others ((you can even base them off other types of bees like the carpenter bee or the stingless bee)), ) please be my guest and show me the end result! Likewise with the background ponies that so many of you have generously allowed me to use already, if you do design a Bee, you will be given full credit at the end of any chapter where they may appear in. Thank you for reading, and i hope to hear from everypony soon! have a lovely Australia Day! peace to all, -Wandering
