Hey all! I don't usually write a lot of journals, but I've been thinking... I need to do something. I need to boost myself a bit, and I need to get out of my comfort zone! So, as such, I've decided that I'm going to potentially add a new commissionable piece; Ref Sheets!

Ref Sheets are important for characters of any fandom. They give other people a stable reference for drawing. Most of the time they're very official, with finalized colors and such. However, sometimes reference sheets can fall flat. Sometimes there's so much leftover space, sometimes there isn't enough back story or written information. Sometimes there's a bunch of unwanted stuff on a ref sheet and it's annoying! So I've decided that my ref sheets are going to be fully customizable. YOU get to pick what you want on there. You want lots of text? Go for it! Like those cool colors on your OC and just want a ton of drawings? Alright! I want everyone who gets a ref from me to be satisfied. However...

I have no practice. 

Don't freak out. 

I'm here to offer 3-- not 2, not 4-- FREE reference sheets. I can get some practice with placement and all that jazz, and you can get a free ref sheet for an OC!

Some Rules:

Star OC must be finalized (I use the term loosely, I know no OC is ever truly done). I want you to get as much as possible out of the sheet, and if I do this sheet and A: I'm getting notes saying you've decided the eyes not green, but brown/the mane is now pink/your OC is a zebra now then it's going to be difficult to finish the art part. Just be content with the character's current design, please?

Star No alicorns. None. This is just a personal rule of mine. I may change my mind for one, if their story and design are really good. Speaking of...

Star STORY. Background info. Have some detail for your OC. Have a cutie mark story. Who were their parents? What was their childhood like? What are they doing with their life? Give me some meat to fill nooks and crannies with! Some fun facts! Half of a great OC is some background on them!

Star Please comment below with a link to your OC and a bit of backstory. (form for that below)

Star This is not 'first come, first serve.' This is putting the bid in for your OC. If I respond to your comment below this Journal, please note me what you'd like on your reference sheet (info on that below)

That's really all I have for rules. Now, getting down to the nitty-gritty:

The actual ref! As I said before, these sheets will be completely customizable. So, there will be several additional things you can place on your sheet.

The Base Sheet:          

My Purple Bullet - F2U! Full body reference of your OC in Front, 3/4 and Rear view
Gold bullet Blown up Cutie Mark
Dark blue bullet Three facial expressions
Yellow Dot Bullet - F2U! Short bio-- likes, dislikes, special talent, and place of residence


(These are the things that can be added to the ref sheet. Since these three sheets are free, add whatever you wish)

Yellow-Green Bullet - F2U! Foal/CMC Age
Light Purple Bullet - F2U! Elderly(or adult depending on the age of your character)
Sea Green Bullet - F2U! Wet Mane
silver bullet Grand Galloping Gala Dress/Suit
Dark Purple Dot Bullet - F2U! Wedding Attire...?
Dark green bullet Winter Gear
Dull Green Dot Bullet - F2U! Summerwear
Orange Dot Bullet - F2U! Rave/Partywear
Strawberry Ice Cream Bullet Formalwear
Dot Bullet (Dark Pink) - F2U! Nightmare Night Costume
Orange Bullet Poison Joke Affect

Bullet; Green Crystal Pony 
Bullet; Red Batpony 
Bullet; Blue Alicorn Prince[ss]
Bullet; Purple Gryphon
Bullet; Black Dragon
Bullet; White Draconequus
Bullet; Yellow Discorded
Bullet; Orange Power Pony (please include powers and superhero name!)
Bullet; Pink Inverted (Form created by me)
Rose Red Bullet - F2U! Equestria Girl/Human
Turquoise Bullet - F2U! "Anthro" EQG
Dot Bullet (Orange) - F2U! EQG Rainbow Rocks
Dark Blue Bullet - F2U! R63/Genderbent
Animated Color Bullets Rainbow Power!
Dot Bullet (Light Blue) - F2U! Seapony
Dot Bullet (Purple) - F2U! Breezie
:bulletbrown: Carousel Pony

Additional Add-Ons:
Gold bullet Extra Facial Expressions
Dot Bullet (Dark Brown) - F2U! Speed Trail (for pegasi/batponies)
Light green bullet Magic Color (for unicorns)
French Vanilla Bullet Pet Reference

That seems to be it. I may or may not add more things as MLP continues to progress!

Like I said earlier, I'm giving 3 of these away! Please provide a link to your OC (which hopefully contains background information). If the link is only a piece of your character, then fill out this small blurb:

Name of OC: 
Special Talent:
(Short) Backstory:

If this is interesting enough, you may have a shot! But I will want a lot of information!

EDIT:  Only hours after creating this, I have an edit. There is no limit on how many characters you can submit! Just please, one OC per comment!

EDIT(12/23/2014): The first OC has been chosen! Two spots left!

EDIT (12/24/2014):
 The second OC is here! ONE spot left, folks!

EDIT (12/29/2010):  The last spot has been claimed! Please don't feel sad folks, I'll definitely do this again some time!


Butterfly Purple - F2U! Closed to: :iconquestiopony: and their OC, Nightseek!
Butterfly Lime-Turq - F2U! Closed to: :iconnoshowmillk: and their OC, Seras Wisp!
Butterfly Pink-Purple - F2U! Closed to: :iconaberrantwhovian: and their OC, Dust!

See you next time, folks!

I'm just a typical Brony, who loves ponies and the like. I'm an orphan who lives with her boyfriend's parents. Okay.. orphan is probably very loosely used. Still! I am what I am. And what I am, no matter what, is an artist. I'll definitely work on putting as much out as I can.
