Rikifive has been gracious enough to offer a small gift to donors to this year's charity. He mentioned this in the main MCM V thread. Basically he will draw your OC if you donate $5 or more. Very generous indeed!

 

Take it away, RikiFive!

Hello everypony!

 
Introduction
Since I'm unable to donate money towards this charity (different, less valuable currency and many expenses), I was thinking of something else I could do.
Instead of donating money, I'm going to donate my time and effort to bring a little bit of happiness by drawing pixel ponies for you!
It's not much, but the word will be spread further with each donate and pony, that will be made.
I'll be posting your ponies here and on my Deviantart account, so that, the images will be easier to find on the internet, linking back to the charity page, thus hopefully bringing more attention.

Oh my princesses! So many requests. x3

  

 
When Can I Request?
> You can request a pony if you have the MCM Donor status on forums or have donated $5 or more for Making Christmas Merrier V Charity.

- If you've got the badge in a different way, it's totally fine - your badge (rank) is your ticket. (=

- If you're not a member of these forums, but have donated $5 or more, then you can request a pony as well.

~ Some ponies may know me from outside of the forums, so don't feel limited because of not having an account here. Just message me in any other media.

~ In that case, it is important to have the same name on the charity page as in the media you want to contact me.

 
> I can offer only one pony per user, regardless of extra amount of donation.

- The pony gallery represents ponies, who supported charity.

 

 
How To Request?
> When your account will be verified, you can ask for your Making Christmas Merrier Pony. To do that, just post a reply on this thread including information about your OC. If you don't have your OC, don't feel sad, you can always request a pony from the show or anypony else you'd like to! heart.png

Requests are now closed. Sorry!   :squee: 

 

PREFERRED MATERIAL

- Image Reference: That's the preferred material as it can show and explain everything. All in one. That image doesn't have to be amazing - even a very simple sketch will do the thing, I'll take care of the rest for you.

 

WORKAROUNDS

If for some reason, you can't get even a very simple sketch, then worry not! Let's cooperate!

You'll have to describe your OC and give necessary information, so that I'll be able to use them to draw a pony for you.

- Base Information: Is he/she a unicorn? Pegasus? Or maybe an Earth Pony? Male or female?

- Color Palette: What colors does your pony have? Fur, mane, tail, eyes ~ anything else? It can be either image with colored squares or just RGB/HTML Color Palette list.

- Description of mane/tail and cutie mark: This will be the most difficult part, please describe these as detailed as possible. Even ugly sketches would help a lot if possible.

 

No need to worry, we can talk and talk about the details until we'll get the pony you want. :3

 
 
Some Tech Information:
> These are pixel art, scaled to double size for better view.
> Ponies come in .gif (simple idle animation) and .png formats facing to right (Mirroring is possible if desired) with and without Santa Suit; 4 images in total by default.
> If your pony wears clothing/costume already, you can ask for one extra variant, with that clothing/costume, making it 6 images in total.

> Additionally, if anypony would be interested, I could make a profile picture out of your pixel pony for you to use, making it up to 7 images in total! For an example, take a look at my profile picture.
 
Why anypony would need those?
It's nothing amazing I know, but you could always stick those ponies to your profile as gifts and be proud, that you've participated and helped in that charity. It would nicely decorate your profile with your own, cute pony, that was made in a special event. You can also consider that just as a fanart!  :kindness:
Besides that, your pony will stay here in the Pony Gallery, so everypony will know, that you have a good heart!
 
 
Why I'm willing to do this?
These tiny gifts (along with the other ones) perhaps will slightly encourage some ponies to take that step to donate, but if not, I'm just happy to do something anyway for those, who participated.
Who knows? Perhaps more artists, composers etc. would also like to help? We all can do something, so let's combine our powers and make these Christmas merrier!   ^_^
 
 
Last Words
Please keep in mind, that I'm just a pony with not exactly friendly real life, so I may have some delays with requests or just having troubles with making your pony look good, so I'm really sorry for that - I'll be doing my best!
The delays may vary - there might be days with absolutely no progress done, but I'll try to fulfill at least one request per week as I'll be working mostly on weekends, because night shifts split my free time weirdly.  :rarity:
 
 Merry Christmas everypony! May the light guide you through your life and remember to be kind to everypony else! :3

What if you don't have an OC drawn for an example?

 

Would you be fine with just a description?

@Lightwing, I'll try my best! I see, that your reference has a pretty smoother style, that doesn't have outline colors based on particular parts ~ I assume it will be okay for me to judge these? :3

 

@Cloggedone, I finally finished updating the thread (at least for now) ~ The answer is yes, though some visual material would be appreciated. Don't kill me if lack of visual reference will lead me to fail. :3 You can read more details in the post.

Here is my wife's OC, feel free to make the mane just orange if you can't two-tone it ... it will just be the pre-wedding version of her. :P

 

BTW, you are amazing for doing this. Seriously solid idea you had.

@Lightwing, First version for preview is ready!

 

To make sure everything will be okay for you, I'm posting a preview to ask for your opinion.

lRT2s38.png

I had troubles with making her accurate, as the image was showing her in a dynamic position ~ I've tired my best to interprete that correctly and I hope, that it doesn't look that terrible.  :rarity:  Don't kill me.

Is there anything, you'd like to change? Feel free to rant on my awful skills.  :squee:

 

 

@Jeric, Aaawwwwww she looks sooooo cute!!!! heart.png

Oh no worries! Multicolored manes/tails are even preferred, because single-colored look kinda weird. So that's even better!

 

Added your request to the list! (=

 

 

What I've got myself into.. Just kidding!  :D

Thank you very much! At least that way I can participate in that charity and do something good! heart.png

Though I admit, that's a real challenge for me, considering, that I'm pretty sure I'll get spammed at some point.. or at least get stuck when more complex pony will appear.  :twi: But generally it's pretty fun and I hope, that I'll be getting smiles for that, because that's what I want from you all! Even if I'll fail... please?  :catface:

Hiya, Riki!

 

Okay, I've been having my own issue with how to choose between my OCs as to which one would be eligible for the pixie-treatment... well, after MUCH roundabout debate, I have settled for my own ponysona, Randi Maxis:

 

RandiMaxis.png

 

The only note I have is that I wanted to be sure that all the colors of the ROYGBIV spectrum are visible; if it isn't too much trouble, I would love it if the hat/boots were different colors - but if those are unchangable, then I won't complain...

 

Heck, I won't complain at all anyway - this is an AWESOME thing you're doing for MCM!

 

Thank you so very, very much for this, and your donation is just as amazing as anyone else's - excelsior, my fine forum friend!

I was thinking of skipping this :please:, but why not let the spirit of Christmas flow a bit more? 

 

If you are willing to do so (I have donated more than 5$ to the charity), could you do my ponysona, Scribere Iceberg?

@Lightwing, Yeah, her mane is pretty long. :3

 

I'm so happy that you liked it! In that case I'll start animating her and finally add to the galery, once done. heart.png

 

Was that your drawing? Nice! That is soooo cute, that you can't do anything but love it. I iike the softy-style, which makes her look so cute. heart.png Wish I could draw like this!  :-P

 

@Randimaxis, Hey, hello! ^^

 

I took me a while to get what you mean, but now I see. Hmm.. I can't say, that those are unchangeable, because I have full control there, so I can even make them multicolored and everything if needed (donate $50 or more to get rainbow accessories jk, but that wouldn't be that stupid actually. :P ), but I kinda would prefer keeping the same colors for everypony, because we all met here for one purpose and it also shows, that even totally different ponies can share something ~ by fighting for something together while looking similar (for support purposes etc.) These accessories are magical from some point of view as they're kinda associated with the event, so I'd prefer keeping them unique as they are, rather than giving different colors for each pony.

However, if that's really what you'd love to have, then of course, I could try doing something there to not disappoint you.  :rarity: 

 

I'm really glad to be able to share some happiness around! Thank you very much for your kind words! heart.png

 

@JonasDarkmane, I knew my skills are terrible, but that much? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

 

Just kidding!  :D

 

Of course! I'll try my best! Glad you've came!  :pinkie:

 

 

I've added your requests to the list - RIP my free time, I gotta start working!  :love:

 

 

sig-4749039.WtvmtpT.png

@Lightwing, Your request is completed! I hope everything looks alright! heart.png

@Jeric, I have good news! ..Hopefully..  :squee:

I've finished making a preview of your wife's OC. By the way, she's so cute, that I'd be doing nothing else but hugging her. I really love the art ~ so softy and nice. heart.png

5XPjR4C.png UVVoGk8.png

To be honest I'm not sure of these lightning effects on her mane and tail, so I've brought you a preview of both versions. Let me know what you think and which version do you prefer.

Mane on her back goes behind her body (from the perspective)- I was thinking of doing the same as on the image you've gave ~ but if you'd like it to appear in the front, then it can be changed. ^^

I tried to make her as accurate as possible, but there always can be some derps around ~ take a look and tell me if there's something you'd like to change.

If everything will be okay, then I'll start finalizing the request, but it will have to wait, because I need to get some sleep before going to work. I hope 5 hours of sleep will be enough!  :-P

Oh and by the way - please tell me her full name!  :D

Once again ~ Thank you very much for your kind words! I'm so happy, that I can participate!

I'd like to add my ponysona to the list, please! She has her own album as a frame of reference (she's a tad vain).

I don't know if it would be possible, as I don't want to take up all your time, can you do a still shot of my OC without the Christmas decorations as well? Unanimated, sans scarf, boots, and hat? If not I completely understand.

My donation is listed as Troblems.

Album of references? I don't have any questions!  :D

 

Of course it will be possible! I've prepared a multi-layered base for this event, so it's just a matter of three clicks to remove these decorations! ^^ And as stated in OP - non-animated versions are available as well!

Even if things wouldn't be prepared, I'd try my best to do these changes for you!  :)

She will appear with these decorations in the pony gallery, but I'll give you a separate image with these removed for all your needs! :3

 

 

Hmm... :huh:  Okie Dokie Lokie...  :okiedokieloki:

Just kidding! I believe you!  :catface:

I've added you to Active Requests List. ^^

Wow. Just so much coolness. I like both approaches, but if I had to choose let's go with the second one (without the highlights).

As far as name she once called her Seraphic Amity. I told her to keep working on it. ;)

And yeah she's pretty cyoot (Pony and IRL).

I'd likewise love to have my own ponysona given your festive treatment, though as with Troblems could I too request a separate image without the accessories? So sorry to trouble you over it. ^^;
