Tranquility by DoNotDelete Tranquility by DoNotDelete
Original MLP character.

Tranquility is a hippocampus (mermaid) pony. She is a natural diplomat and speaks softly but confidently. She is always polite and believes in making sure that everybody gets a chance to speak.

Her cutie mark is one of balance and calm - also denoting the relationship between Tranquility's magic and the moon.

Tranquility's magic relates primarily to the manipulation of gravity - giving her the ability to manipulate water and earth to her will. With this power she is able to leave the ocean where most other hippocampus (mermaid) ponies dwell and suspend herself above the ground - enabling her to interact with ponies of the land and sky. Tranquility often magically suspends a ring of water around her midriff when she leaves the ocean - both for her own comfort and for the purposes of magic.

A serene and calming influence on those around her, Tranquility likes to settle difficult situations with discussion, understanding and diplomacy rather than rash action.

I've also had ideas for a male unicorn and female zebra; I may get around to drawing them up at some point.

I really like the colors here, and the mane has a nice style. All the fins are nice, they come off as natural and don't disturb in the slightest bit. I would also like to point out how nice the tail fin looks like. My favorite is the cutie mark though, amazing job on that one!

The background is still a bit busy, but a lot more harmonic than in Crimson Cloud's.

Nice job on this character and picture.

Thanks.

People keep saying this 'Shooby doo' thing in comments relating to this character - but honestly I had to look it up because I had no idea what people were going on about.

Dude, she looks fantastic. It makes me happy to see another Hippocampus in the MLP fandom. And I would absolutely love to see the male unicorn and female zebra from you.

Thank you.

I'll try to get around the the unicorn and zebra sometime but I have other pieces to be drawing/finishing too.

I'm just trying to get back into the habit of finishing and submitting artwork regularly because my self-discipline in regard to that issue has been really poor recently.

Ah, I can definitely understand that. Most artists go through that every now and then, such as myself. I tend to leave sketches unfinished for days, even weeks before they're scanned or even worked on.

I actually drafted Tranquility and Crimson Cloud almost three months ago now. Right now I'm trying to finish some (non-pony) character designs I came up with last summer - that's how bad I am at this.

Wow, that really is a long time. I still have sketches from last year-2 years ago that I haven't even scanned yet. Sounds like we're both really bad procrastinators, haha.

I Love Hippocampi.
For Some Reason The Only types they have in MLP: FiM are Alicorns, Unicorns, Pegasi and Earth Ponies... Odd. But Cool OC :D

Yeah, Idk if they will ever feature a race of hippocampi in an episode of the MLP:FiM show.

It could happen I suppose.

Well I kinda tried doing a dolphin version of the mermaid ponies rather than the seahorse ponies - I myself prefer having the legs there at the front like that.

yeah but the horn sesame of on them tome i say them having fins is what made them so stend out in g1 tho there tails did seem of and they had no cutie marks i assumed the bubble and water magic would fit as just there nature like Pegasus do with weather... i do have 4 seapony oc's my self Riptide, Undertow, Whitecap and Leviathan (give you one guess why she has that name)

I think having the legs at the front gives the mermaid ponies a bit more 'balance' design-wise, I can see the concept behind the seahorse-style merponies but they really are a bit stuck if they end up outside of the water (not enough limbs).

I think a dolphin-based hippocampus (mermaid) pony is a first but I can't be sure.
