Fiddlesticks taking a nap.
Print made for the auction at the 5th Belgian Brony meet!

For you tumblr people out there, I'd appreciate if you didn't post this yourself but reblogged my post instead!

Well, it's a little pony!
But, yes, it is a disproportionate fiddle. I should've used some more references.

I know your pain! I've been moderating a Fiddlesticks ask blog on tumblr if you're interested, the link should be in my description!

Do you mod it, draw it or both? I've never really understood Tumblr, call me a dinosaur.

But I've been intruiged by ask blogs, I've read a couple, you see them not just on tumblr but a little everywhere, and it looks like exactly the sort of thing I could do fairly well, about half my art is sorta one-panel comics with characters talking diretly to the camera, I can do mini-comics.

The main reason I haven't started one is that I figured I'd either get no questions or every question would have to do with some sort of horrifying sexual fetish of some kind...

I moderate and draw it!
I suggest you try and go for it~! I'd advise against running an OC blog because those tend to get fairly little attention unless they are ridiculously great.
it's better to try and fail than not try at all, right?

That it is, hmmm.. what do you think about "Ask Mayor Mare & Derpy", I'm prolly the only one who kinda ship those two because I liked their cute fight in Lesson Zero. And if I don't get any questions, I could just do the occasional silly side-story until I do.

FiddleArts Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Yeah, I know a couple of blogs that make posts regardless of wether they use asks or not.
I'll admit I'm not really into shipping, but I know it's pretty popular on tumblr.

I should probably warn you that you might get hate for shipping Derpy with anyone else than the doctor though. The best option is to simply ignore the people that do.

I like how the Blur effect is more "soft" for closer things (like the fence)

What if this is how Fiddlesticks lives? She just hangs out behind the Apple's barn until someone needs her to play the fiddle? In any situation beyond where here fiddle is needed, she just opts out to be a loner behind the barn. She doesn't eat, converse with anyone, she just sleeps and waits for something to play her fiddle at.

Then she shows up at all the musical numbers and stage performances and the out of towners are all like "Wow, she's good at the fiddle. You know her?" And then they have to awkwardly explain her situation even though they can't provide a rational explanation for why she chooses to or has to live her life the way she does. All the way back home on the train they can't get that fiddle playing stranger out of their head because she is so strange and full of whimsy, but in just a day or two of being back home they forget her because really her existence is not all that glamorous and thus the fantasy is short lived.

And if that isn't true, why is she sleeping behind someone else's barn with a fiddle? It's picturesque and made for a nice subject of this fine drawing, but she makes no sense! Who are you and what is your life about pony?

Or she's just taking a quick rest in the shade of the newly raised barn!
.. Yeah, that's nowhere near as interesting as your explanation.

Thanks for the comment and interesting take on this picture! x3

I can't help it if I see a vagabond and can't help but wonder what his story is, what he does, who his friends are. Trust me, your way of looking at things is easier. You probably pick up a lot less hitch-hikers.

I can't even drive. I should really go for my license soon, I tend to postpone the important stuff.

They'll never give you a license if you can't drive. Practice in an empty parking lot in your town.

The system is different here (assuming you're not Belgian), but by "going for my license" I meant going through all the neccesary steps to be able to get one. Learning how to drive is one of those steps.

Belgium? Sheesh, all I know about Belgium is waffles n' beer. Lesse here... hmm... okay... Belgium. You have three official languages, your capital is Brussels, you have a parliamentary constitutional monarchy... hmm... well, sounds like a nice place... but... how attractive are the women?

Ah well, at least you all drive on the right. If I had any advice for you, it would be a moot point because here in Puerto Rico the only driving law we adhere to is "drive on the paved roads"... and that one is still only sometimes. I once saw a pickup with three horses in the back. I don't know about you, but that freaks my friends from the States out.
