Crimson Dawn by GSphere by GSHgunner Crimson Dawn by GSphere by GSHgunner
This piece is originally posted on GSphere's DA, but he made an edit for me after he initially posted it, so not a lot of people got to see the change, so I thought I would post it here too.

Crimson Dawn is a Zebracorn and my main OC, this picture depicts him standing amongst his reformed Tribe of Zebra after the events of the first arc of his lifestory that he is now the leader and protector of, his Tribe is based in the San Palomino Desert (Going by the Equestria map) around 200 years before the events of the show. :)

Also what you can't tell from the image is that he has Heterochromia, which basically means he has two different eye colours, his left eye is red.

This is really, truly an amazing piece of artwork.
However, the OC isn't that well made. Change the colors a bit, and it's perfect!
I love it!

considering I designed him over 3 years ago, i don't plan on changing him now

uh huh, sorry, but many things are wrong in your statement, one you are just doing it out of retaliation for what my honest opinion was on another OC, so your opinion is bias and one sided, two he is not red and black, if you actually looked further than your nose you would see that his coat is grey not black, three, you can't base an opinion off a picture alone, as he has an in depth backstory to him, which people who have seen it love, and people also like his design as well, and four, you are getting black, your msg is getting removed and you are getting reported for harassment, hope you have a nice day

Softly sobs because your art is very nice but at the same time the oc is another b lack and red. May I do a redraw of this?

He's red and grey actually, and no, he is never going to change, changing anything means I have to change something else, because of his life story explains about him and why he looks the way he is

Whilst not really a fan of the whole red/black thing, this is the best one I've seen and the effort involved is quite clear :3

maybe I should put in the description that he is actually red and grey? then again no one really reads descriptions in the first place so, ah well :)

but yes, a lot of effort has gone into making him, around 2 years ago he was born and to this day I still make adjustments, either his appearance, personality, abilities or his life story.

Your being very mature about all the... I guess i'm going to say haters.

It's definitely not the worst i've ever seen, and at least it's not alicorn!
The cutie mark is awesome, and I love the accessories. Bravo! ^.^

You have a point, I couldn't really think of anything else to say since personally I think the criticism was overly harsh in a few cases.  Anywho, we shouldn't spam over this piece of art.  :P

they don't concern me, they only dislike something based on just appearance alone, without even knowing anything about them, so if they say they're bad because of that, then they are just unintelligible and there opinions are meaningless.

so thanks ^ ^

his cutie mark, or Kennis Simbool as the Zebras know it as, is the African Tribe symbol for Harmony :)

Educated answer.  :3  Haters gonna hate!

Wow.  This cutie mark is a lot deeper than it seems.  :P

:icongshgunner:
GSHgunner Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2013
lol, but yes, almost everything about him has a deeper meaning than just going by his appearance, like Kennis Simbool is Zebrikaans for Knowledge Symbol, the symbol of knowledge, knowing what they specialize in and what their futures hold for them, because in his life story I did for him, most Zebra speak Zebrikaans, which is the MLP version of Afrikaans, and most pony species that live in Equestria, like Pegasi, Unicorns and Earth Ponies speak Equestrian, which is the MLP term for English :)

I'll admit, I /really/ love the art. However, the red and black coloring is cliché and overused.

As I said before with someone else, my OC is around 2 years old, there were no red and black OC's around at the time, trust me, i remember checking, even though mine is grey, though my point still stands, there were no such thing as cliché and overused back then :)

Ugliest, most cliché, overused color palette and stripe design drawn in the best possible way. I don't really fancy him, still, but I'm glad someone used the zebra stripes for more than unnecessary, "et luks kewl" accessories, and that the zebracorn is not Zebra+Alicorn, (still, Zebracorn... wtf) and that someone used other than the emo, edgy, "evil" "demonic" Dubstep DJ overlord theme.

Still gets a tag, but know this: You proved me wrong, there is a way to make a Red-Black OC that is not trash.

You also had to take into account when I first made him, which from whn I remember was either early 2012 or late 2011, so there hardly any OC's around to compare with, and from what I remember, I don't think I saw any red and black OC's around at the time, even though mine is grey not black, but still, haven't seen any red and grey OC's either, so to me at least, he is original, I guess as time has past people will be bound to make OC's of similar colours, but you can't blame one that was around before all the others, but I guess you couldn't really tell that before I said, so il give you the benefit of the doubt :)

Oh and Zebracorn is Zebra and Unicorn crossbreed, again, don't know if that was a thing bad then either lol

I guess I need to adjust the brightness of this thing.

Also... I think I just saw something that... now... I can't unsee. I'm not going to tell that though, because that would ruin the experience of other and couldn't look at this awesome artwork like this again.

I did not think it was possible for an OC pony to exist that used a red/gray color scheme and extra body markings and actually looks really awesome.  On top of that, he has accessories that are not at all distracting, nor do they clutter the design.
I refuse to believe you aren't some sort of wizard.

lol, nah, I am more of a Fighter than a Wizard, though my OC uses magic, so yeah, guess I am close to being a Wizard XD

those body markings are of course Zebra stripes, because he is a crossbreed between a Unicorn and a Zebra :)

thanks very much though :D

By far the absolute best red & black oc yet! And trust me, I've seen alot of 'em!

For his main, I love how you didn't go all full-out dj spikey, like most red&black oc's I've seen.

I also admire How you made him part Zebra,not only that but part of a tribe. I believe that's the first black & red Zebra tribe member.

His bracelets (or do you call 'em hooflets? :O ) Are pretty darn cute to! They deffantly add more originality to his simple colors.

His madelin (can't spell it, or is it a necklace) Is pretty awesome, and his cape is deffantly rock on, and cutie mark & feathers. Spot on~
By far, once again, and amazing Black & red oc.

thanks for the praise :D though I must say he is not black, rather just his mane and tail are, but you are not the first person to make that mistake, so il give you the benefit of the doubt ;)

yes, he is part Zebra and part Unicorn, which I call a Zebracorn :3

his necklace is his family's crest with his initials etched into it, each family in the tribe has there own unique crest,

and his cape as you call it, is actually a shawl :)

GSHgunner Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2013
your words are very kind, and I am glad that you took into account that he is grey too, his mane and tail are black :)

and he is not just an image either, I have worked on a life story for him too, to give him personality and character, and to explain why he is the way he is and looks, which for me, is what brings an OC to life, from just being something in a picture to being someone with a past of their own and a future that awaits them, that, for me, is how a good OC should be, regardless of how they look and what other people might think negatively of them just because of the colour of their coat :D

I totally agree with you. OCs just shouldnt just look alright, they should have personality and Character, despite of their outside, Good looking OC could still be terrible, but if you make those Things alright, no matter how it looks, you have a great OC. Yours is just awesome in all of these things <3

This definitly needs a place in my 'awesome Art' folder, and ill make an 'awesome OC' folder maybe too, and Crimson Dawn would be the first in there <3
