Melancholy by secret-pony Melancholy by secret-pony
It's been a long time since I managed to draw something O.o
I hope art block is gone for good this time.


I mentioned this before with that big winged drawing I did of Derpy a while back, but I'll say it again.
I like to think of Derpy as a pony with a stable mental state. But she's trapped inside her faulty, clumsy body.
She's very strong and understands why other ponies often laugh at her because of her clumsiness...
but sometimes it's just too much to endure.

Sorry buddy, I don't really like to have my stuff used as a base.
I hope you understand. ^^;

So thank you for that ^^

*builds a small tent of pillows around Derpy, puts a flag with a muffin design on the top, wraps her in a blanket with muffin designs, runs to the kitchen and comes back with a plate with a big warm muffin on it, sets it in front of her, wipes her tears and gives her a big hug* don't be sad. you're the most adorable pony in Equestria.

I'm actually kind of on the clumsy side in real life, and have slightly crossed eyes. *Unseeable, it's very slight. I also wear glasses that correct this.* I kind of know how she feels... :(

Amazing how you capture the emotion, really.
And an interesting theory, I could agree with that.

Can you link me the video, please?
If you give me credits for the piece and a link to my DA in the description, then I'm fine with it.
(Assuming the contents of the vid aren't putting my work in a bad light ofcourse)

Your description is depressing.
but *sigh* it's real life.

A long, tight, heartfelt hug and a blueberry muffin might cheer her up!

Being clumsy is one of the things I love about her, unfortunately in the real world she would be treated like a laughing stock :no:

It's a great drawing, kind of sad but great :D
