>no Lyra thread
Time for a Lyra thread!
No humanized, please.
We actually had two. Where did they go? Are we really this bad when it comes to taking care of a thread?
I'm not sure I'd exactly call that "human". Just look at it.
Horses can't have that big of a butt.
Stop being a fucking monkey fucker.
>can't be best pony because she is not important in the show...
u fokkin' wot m8?
you laugh you lose
So are you all Lyra fags ready for disappointment or extreme pandering when the background pony episode airs?
Maybe you're right. Lya fanfics and headcanons culminate in superior alternative show.
>Horses can't have that big of a butt.
As a Lyrafag, the fanfics and most of the headcanon are shit. Pic related, my reaction to your superior alternative show.
I've always fel't that if there was a spinoff show aimed at the fandom, pic related would be the main characters with Berry, Colgate and the Doc more as really important supporting characters
Alright, let's talk about this. This is a question for all the lyrafags.
How do you imagine her personality to be like? be honest.
Made me cringe. I hate those hideous SFM models.
She seems extroverted aims to make others smile.
Energetic, happy, cheery, likes to make others feel well. Like Pinkie but not nearly as prominent or extreme
Also likes reading, going on quiet walks and listening to or playing music. She sometimes goes to a secluded place and practices new musical pieces, or composes right there, letting her creativity loose, painting her very soul into her work
With a name like Heartstrings, one can imagine the ways she would make you "Feel".
These sound like what I think of with her. Such a cute pony too.
I do also like the idea of her being a little eccentric, so the whole fandom idea of her being human obsessed does amuse me and it's something I like to use with the idea of her being a little quirky/not quite all there but overall a nice loveable pony.
They'll probably go the safe route and with so many characters in one episode there can't be much in the way in development anyway. At best some fanon may get hinted at, but I also expect disastrous results for the shipping crowd.
Next to Applejack, Lyra might be the most famous of the background ponies (or possibly Derpy), what do you think they'll write her as in episode 100?
5 bucks she only gets like two lines, and both of them result from a conversation with Bonbon. I'm only setting my expectations low to not get disappointed. In an ideal world she'd be the main character of the episode and her personality would be like the things described ITT.
Bumping for more Lyra
Cheer up, Lyra! Humans are fine, but Lyra herself is a pony.
Anyone seen SomeTwifag or anyone else from CY-LYRA
Cyborg Lyra horror storythreads around last months?
someTwifag is M.I.A. since around september.
>No humanized, please.
FUCK YOU, DO WHAT I WANT!
...j/k, have a bump.
"I don't like thing"
>Shit post about it
>bump thread, assisting the thread instead of letting it die
"I guess I like thing after all"
Well, I hope you don't mind if I just get you a gift out of the ol' rubbish bin.....
You joke but its the truth. The lack of a defined personality makes her an ideal self-insert your interpretation of a Mary Sue personality. They'll probably run her as a... mammal-loving eccentric nutjob for our friends at Reddit to splurge over in all their meme-fueled autistic glory.
And I know it's coming and I can't stop it.
they're making a background pony episode?
>mfw if its true
What if... it is a mute episode? No voice acting but only music to set the tone of the episode.
Unless it has been described that there would be voice acting. then this post is irrelevant
It's been confirmed for episode 100. Background ponies are getting an episode.
But, fuck, I'd be upset if Lyra had no part in the episode rather than one that doesn't match up with my expectations.
>Wait years to see mint horse on screen and talking, again.
>Episode dedicated to popular backgrounds skips over it entirely.
I'm with this guy, the mere fact of watching glorious Lyra talk and move makes me extremely happy, no matter if her personality isn't what I expected.
I mean, shit, look at the bright side, if she gets decent screentime we'll probably get a lot of new fan art material every day instead of just 2 or 3 average pictures per day. You guys should be happy.
The episode better contain at least derpy, lyra, bon bon, carrot top, octavia and of course Vinyl. I don't feel as if Colgate, Berry, and Roseluck will manage to get in it, hopefully, especially Berry, they will. Seeing the doc would impressive, but I doubt it.
The first six I mentioned are the ones that have been featured more prominently in the show before, at varying degrees, so they're the ones I expect HAVE to be in a background pony episdoe.
Watch as the tags "Lyra" and "Scene interpretation" light up.
It's gonna be a good one, even just for the fan art.
This hiatus has starved me so...
I really, really hope they skip her, roseluck, and colgate. Yeah their identical, but I feel like they'd make them into shitty maymay ponies.
Dunno. It just randomly generates 4 of them as far as I can tell when you browse a random page. I was going through http://www.wikihow.com/Set-up-a-Fundraising-Event and it popped up. Seems random though.
Just edited it. Is this more your speed?
that one sucks cause its not 10
Cant't you just imagine getting taken out in an instant from a semitruck with the driver asleep at wheel. In a blink, you jerk up from a prone position and see that, mind still racing.
you're using log, if you want 10 you need to use natural log
Equestria is a place where society is based on fairness and logic. That's why they use 24h.
There was one about flash sentry talking about how he might have a thing for horsewomen and not normal women, needless to say, Lyra was heavily involved, you want?
It ain't greentext but I liked it
>Not 6 Earth hour days, 426 Days a year.
Do you think Lyra would play Kerbal?
Here's a pastebin with Lyra x Anon. Kinda old but a bit satisfying
at least it looks more impressive than the original
I see your Tiger I Lyra, and I raise you a aston maretin lyra
>Cy-Lyra in lingerie
I think you should do it. soon.
Just recently read this off the gender role swap thread. Pretty solid. - http://pastebin.com/01b3iy5c
There's a lot of Lyra CYOA's right off the top of google if you... search "Lyra CYOA" which is greentext so close enough. I can think of a few other Lyra greens but none are really worth sharing for quality's sake.
I dreamed that I was eating some beans, almost exact same dream too!
oh no, I'm not a lyrafag, I prefer marshmallows over mints
Does'nt matter if you already have a waifu, you know immediately upon your arrival in ponyville, this mint qt is going to pounce on you outta nowhere.
>tfw love Lyra and consider her best pone
>one day get weird dream about her going from small horse, to growing into huge giantess horse, and then doing lewd things to me out of my control
>wake up with boner
>confused as to why
>mfw no face
I'm unsure whether to WHY about it, or write greentext about this shit.
Neither tineye nor google has any idea what the fuck is floating on your folder. I certainly don't. What you have there is a novice artist that posted it once on 4chan, no one but you kept it, and all traces of the image got deleted. You will literally never know unless they come out, seeing as they have no intention on uploading their work to anywhere permanent.
Or you upload it yourself and claim it as your own - you might be able to fish them out.
I had a dream that I was moving into this apartment and i somehow realized after the move that she was my neighbor. I didn't want to be a creeper about it for whatever reason so I never got to see her but then there was this moment where there was some event going on in the main lobby and we locked eyes. The feels that were transferred in that stare, holy shit. And then my alarm went off before I got to really do anything else with that scenario.
Hard to describe old dreams but it felt like my heart was fucking breaking on the inside when I had that, the feels were real. I rarely get that much of a rise in real life, let alone dreams.
I am definitely seeing a resemblance here.
Sometimes I just wish I could forget those feels.
Chapters were like 10k a pop as I recall. It was just a book that demanded a solid reading session to make it through the chapter. I mean, every chapter really was its own experience with that one, for better or worse.
Is it really that hard to read more than a 5k wordcount before the book ~should~ resolve itself? You can only get so much story with so much constraint.
John Dowland's lute books. Transposed for lyre when necessary.
All that detail and he missed the fucking nostrils...
The draw thread is ignoring me. Could someone critique/redline this? Pony is Lyra so I think it still counts as being thread related.
One look at that image brought me straight back to this.
Top left looks like a straight up horse. Top middle is... half pony half horse. Below that appears to be a human foot for some reason. Top right is a finger with an arrow/circle combo showing some kind of flow from the finger to the hoof. Might be the 4chan logo under that. I don't even know what's to the right of the 4chan logo, but appendage-like
And then a rudimentary sketch of Lyra without her lyre cuttie mark. Possible twinkle in the eye stands as the only notable detail.
There's just not much to comment on. These are all rough sketches that could theoretically be good if you possess the talent to go from this to a finished polished product. She's not even minty yet.
What the fuck is redlining in art terminology?
I'm sorry I wasn't terribly clear.
I'm just trying to work on proportions right now, and the front leg looked really weird to me but I couldn't figure out why
which is why I started drawing actual anatomy. I would like a critique on the mlp style sketch with regard to leg size/placement. Also, if anything just looks off I would like to know.
There's some detail that comes into the final product that I can't really comment on. Um. What does jump out at me is in comparing her to your sketch, see pic, is they have this thing going on with their hind legs that curves in a bit to accentuate their 2d asses. Your hind legs are straight as an arrow, which is wrong. You kind of seem to depict the legs getting bigger as they go closer to the hoof but uh, in the official stylization isn't more of a curve'd expansion over a straight expansion. Their legs are never straight like what you're depicting. The actual placement of the legs looks fine in regards to her body.
I mean, just... take that in but like, compare your legs to shots of ponies from that angle or pic related.
Ears are short because I didn't plan ahead and ran out of space. So the legs are supposed to look more like this, then?
Ass curve-in isn't a jagged edge, but a rounded one. Standing straight up, the bottom part of that rounded ass curve-in edge on their leg is parallel to the ground, and it curves maybe... what, 70 degrees? The curve needs to stretch more down the leg as well.
Again, compare your... wedge of an ass-curve on the hindlegs to >>22089906 curvature. I get that this is stupid stabilization bullshit but that's how they do it.
It's also kind of just a weird pose to have a pony in, standing absolutely straight up. They just never seem to do that really. They're either moving which involves knees magically appearing or sitting or laying or whatever.
The tail on mk1 was better
I fell asleep at my computer.I'll do more sketches tomorrow. Thanks for your critiques, and goodnight.
Okay, I'm awake again. This is the last post I'm making on this topic in this thread because I don't want to hijack it any more than I already have. I corrected the first sketch a bit, and then made a 3/4 angle sketch. I'm not quite sure why I went in and outlined it with pen afterward, but it happened. I'm aware that the head on 3/4 pony is too small. I noticed that after I finished outlining it and was already too late.
I would like to know further problems with the back legs, and any way to make the front legs look less stiff.
Look at the forelegs in >>22081343 >>22089383 >>22089906 and compare yours. The legs curve in a way you aren't depicting, where yours are virtually straight lines. The *correct* curves give them that aspect of increasing size the further down it goes, where yours don't.
You can hijack the thread more if you post finished products. Our threads are going to continue to be slow to the point of premature death until ep 100 airs and we get the revamp. So long as you don't turn into namefaggotry, anyway, there's no real harm.
>Lyra thread about to die
Angels in flight
If I could please direct your attention here: >>22104916
Okay, as we all know, Lyra threads seem to rarely produce content. My idea is we could try to have Lyra taking selfies in inappropriate places (9-11 attacks, Auschwitz, etc.). I would start us off with some, but I can't edit images worth shit.
woops, forgot image
Here's one, not innapropiate, but was first pic that came to mind in my folder
Here is something more along what you wanted, any suggestions?
Last one, I promisem, unless anyone wants one
>having carrier based planes in the desert

Lyra sees the image limit and is sad.
Let's honor her by actually reaching it
Dumping a bit
