Scootaloo Finds A Home... by SeptilSix Scootaloo Finds A Home... by SeptilSix
So, this is my entry for the "Second so great and powerful" contest put on by :iconfim-pics:. The theme was to depict an episode we would like to see in Season 3. And so what I would really want to see is a background story for Scoolaloo. Think about it, we all know that Applebloom lives on Sweet Apple Acres with her family, and Sweetie Belle obviously lives somewhere in Ponyville with her parents, but what about poor Scoots'? She never really got the attention I think she deserved. And what happened to her family? All these questions have never been officially answered, but I'd really like to see an episode explaining where Scootaloo came from and the events leading up to her arrival in Ponyville.

And this was also inspired by the songs "When Home Calls" and "When Homes Lost" by Joaftheloaf. He's an amazing musician, go check him out. His songs will make you cry...


Sorry for the poor quality. But I didn't have time to make a full color picture that looked better...
I'll probably redo this later in color once I find the time.



Scootaloo and Ponyville @ Hasbro

Awesome work! I'd love to see this done in color, and I've love to hear more about Scoot's backstory in S3. And thankfully, the episode is coming!

It's entirely possible that the whole mystique surrounding Scootaloo can be explained away thus: they never got around to fleshing her out with all the other stuff they did :p Anyway, what he said vvv :iconthumbsup2plz:

That's an even better explanation! xD

And also, I have your picture pretty much planned out now. So once I come out with a sketch I like I'll be able to finish it up :D

so did I. but my friend told me that the toy lines often don't mach-up with the show.

Yeah, you're right, it's evident how they match up pets for the mane six

Really? I never knew that, since no episode so far has really hinted to that. Cheerilee was was her sister in G3 actually, though things tend to change with each generation. That would make sense though, since the layout of their names are similar and having a poor little orphaned filly might be a little dark for a kids show... But I still like to think of her as having no parents or home, it leaves more room for my twisted imagination :P

I read about it on a toy. so it could be wrong seeing as the toy line has not exactly lined up with the show in every aspect.

Ah I see, I think I saw that same toy actually. I guess we'll just have to wait and see if Hasbro decides to give her more of a background story sometime soon. I sure hope so! :D

If you wanted to, you could always try it again? Then you could sort out what aspects you want to keep and which ones you want to change, and make it look even better!

SeptilSix Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That's actually the exact thing I plan to do! I'll be starting from scratch with a new undersketch, so I'll be able to pay more attention to not making the same mistakes twice ;D

What the heck. I swear this picture was somewhere else. This is really wierd for me, I had your username mixed up with someone else this since I first saw this for absolutely no reason and have finally noticed -_-
but that doesn't even matter, everything I said still stands lol
and cool, can't wait to see it when its done! In large part I think you should work on grass texturing and the sign, and then a little bit on the anatomy of Scootaloo. What you have so far is still good though!

SeptilSix Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Huh, really? That is quite weird... But adding more detail to the grass and the sign is a good idea. I've never tried doing grassy textures in colored pencil, so that should be an interesting experience...

Thanks for your feedback! :D

Yup, the wings are missing (just as said the comment below). I find Scootaloo's head weird (it just looks as if she have taken drugs or something, which is strenghtened by her skin's colour - maybe it's because the eye is too close to the border of her head?), but the rest of really well-done. But the most stunning thing here is the background - it looks absolutely wonderful!

SeptilSix Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks for the feedback! And I've added the wings now, I can't believe I forgot them xD

And her head is kinda messed up. It should have been slightly narrower I think, and the eye should be in a slightly different place as you pointed out. If I redo this in color later I'll be fixing all that :D I'm pretty happy with the background though :p

Please do it in color! Sounds like a great idea :) I think you made her head too stick-out-y as well :XD:

:iconseptilsix:
SeptilSix Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, her head is quite stick-y-out-y-y xD But I'll be completely redoing the undersketch for the finished piece, so it should hopefully look a lot less odd in that one :D
