[Old Design] MLP:FIM - Rose Quartz Character Sheet by DemonKaizoku [Old Design] MLP:FIM - Rose Quartz Character Sheet by DemonKaizoku
Name: Rose Quartz
Species: Crystal Pony
Cutie Mark: Rose with three leaves
Bio: (Will be Added at a Later Date/Finishing Touches On)
= = = =

As for her name being "Rose Quartz", take her name set-up to be like "Derpy Hooves", for example. The goofy pegasus usually is called "Derpy"; so like her, this character usually only goes by "Rose". Adding Quartz like a surname was just for the fact that she is a Crystal Pony, and it being a mineral crystal and all. Somewhat pun-ish, but only a little. :XD:

The story behind Rose's development is both considered amusing and ironic, to me. She was sort of inspired through both the Crystal Empire concept and through the category of my one villain OC Erebus
Now, I've had this character (Erebus) in my head for awhile, but his design took awhile for me to get down (He is presently likely going under a little bit of a design revamp, because I feel like he isn't 'epic enough', considering his role in the Discord/Celestia adventure-esque fanfiction I am working on). Now, back with the rumor with that one thumbnail of King Sombra's head on HUB's website, this was obviously roughly during the Canterlot Wedding two-parter. Those episodes themselves were aired on 4/21/12. My upload of Erebus? Officially 4/20/12. The wedding games and activities had been up for a little while before, though not too long, but I never saw that little thumbnail slip clue of the Season 3 villain until awhile later. So, imagine when the closer we got to November, the closer we got to finding out that head shot was an official image of the Season 3 opening villain.

At first, I was nervous. Teamed with somewhat of an incorporeal shadow form? I thought this wasn't looking good for my character. Even though my portrayal of Erebus is technically more like an entity/embodiment of darkness in more than one way, as we're talking like once being a cosmic form (connected with Celestia and Luna's parents, rank-wise), and not like something basic as a shadow body, let alone the potential fanfiction story I am coming up with (the Discord and Celestia one I keep mentioning on about).
Of course, with as little Sombra that was shown in the two-part Crystal Empire episodes, I was both relieved and saw this to work in my favor and story's plot. Before the episodes themselves came out earlier in November, I could not help but compare some of their color schemes. It's stupid, I know, but here is that comparison: [link]
Aren't those all a bit close, if not in some related shade sort of way? I know, right? :lol: I was beyond myself and actually a bit pleased. In result, I came up with a bit of an idea; one I thought may be a little crazy or gutsy (when it comes to OC and canon character clashing). Thus, I thought with the relation of colors and themes, Erebus would be King Sombra's father. This is officially my new headcanon.

So, if you have not yet guessed her role by now - Rose Quartz's role is that of being Erebus's lover. So, pretty much think of the scenario like a Mortal + Higher Form type of fling. The Greek mythology is obviously a good example of what I am referring to. Ergo, she is King Sombra's legitimate mother.
This will be shown and established in something of a single one-shot back story that I am also going to be working on. It will be more of a stand alone and more than likely not really mentioned in the actual big story project I am working on (unless it's vaguely hinted, I can't honestly say at the moment). Of course, much to Rose's eventual dismay, the fling with Erebus is one-sided. Erebus is both a tactical and devious character. Yes, you'll see how cold and big of a magnificent bastard Erebus can be (in the stand alone and the actual main story project). The "acts" themselves you could say were more planned and served as an experimentation for him.
So, team that with a Crystal Pony birthing an odd-looking foal (aka: Sombra), fellow Crystal Pony inhabitants both fearing her child and soon ostracizing herself along with her child as time passes, yeah... sucks for you Rose Quartz. It's kind of sad, but sometimes making plot, controversies, and so forth can be fun and overrule you feeling bad for a character/one's own creation. So yeah, I don't know if that means I'm a bad person or not. ^^; Welp...

Fact: Rose's eye color = the color of King Sombra's sclera.
Fact #2: Rose Quartz is dated back during the reign of the first Crystal Empire Queen (who was the one that founded the Crystal Faire tradition, as mentioned in the episode. So, around that thousand years ago mark if not perhaps a little more, as we do not necessarily know the timeline of their first Queen). So yes, in my own personal thoughts/opinions, I pose Sombra like a "demigod-like" offspring. So therefore, he has more of a longer life span than an average citizen, obviously.
Plus, what with the mother being a crystal pony, and Sombra's dark crystal connections or desires.... aren't I smart and creative? :XD: *joking*

Sheesh, this picture was on my desktop since... almost two weeks ago. :P Why I stopped from posting it sooner, I will never know.

Let me know what you think. :D I would love to hear from you all.

Dear Lordy, this is amazing. I love how her eyes are the color of Sombra's EYE MIST STUFF WHICH I GUESS IS CALLED SCLERA. 


Erebus and her look amazing! The fact that the crystal version and the other two versions of her were hand drawn is awesome! I could never do a feat like that.

You flatter me, really. But thank you for such nice comments. 
As for Erebus, you probably saw the outdated design, but here is his final design: demonkaizoku.deviantart.com/ar…

when stoned pony, the cutie mark suppose to be blank flank because King Sombra hates cutie marks.

Actually, check/rewatch the episode, again. The overall Crystal Ponies have cutie marks crystallized: [link]
Pastel: [link]
And when dulled: [link]

Sorry, I tend to get my details right, so when I see something wrongly pointed out, I compulsively tend to correct. :P

Well... OCs aren't canon characters in the show, now are they? XP Nor is my character.


"well one of the OC was stoned and dulled"
Um... I don't partly understand what you are typing. It's like I'm missing something as I read it. :confused:

But all the crystal ponies have cutie marks, no matter the three stages they are seen in. Just watch the episode. If you've seen one without one elsewhere, it's obviously an error. And if it's another's OC they were either too lazy to do it or they wanted their OC to be a blank flank. Either way, Crystal Ponies with cutie marks are canon. You watched the episode, right? o.o

I like it but wht's weird about crysta ponies are when crystal ponies stand in front of any solid object, you can see right through them. But wht puzzles me is that these crystal ponies are just mere ponies that are solid and you can see objects through them, but you can't see their insides, like their organs or muscles or anything. More further on research on crystal ponies.

I got a feeling this character will have a good personality as your OC Crystal Pony. Too bad Sombra didnt have one....and couldnt speak more than just 3 words of English yet also would be grunting, growling, and snarling. It reminded me of when in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic that the wizard Ixis Naugus ended up being...well....not himself to put it lightly. Also do you hopefully know when Discord will return since John De Lancie(i think i spelled that wrong but meh) was confirmed. I mean its not like he voiced Sombra right? ..................................right? :iconwideeyesplz:

:icondemonkaizoku:
DemonKaizoku Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh no. John de Lancie never voiced King Sombra. That was Jim Miller (as seen here, when you click to show more info in his tab: [link]).

As for if there is confirmation of Discord's return? Well, there's no actual video teaser showing Discord coming back, but John de Lancie did officially mention he did something further down the road of FIM. With such a distinct voice, I'd presume is Discord. As far as I know, I hear he makes a return in season three, but I can't be one hundred percent on that, either. Or, it could be in theory Discord during a flashback sequence. Who can say? But word comes more and more, including Equestria Daily, the most relied FIM information based site, that John de Lancie is indeed returning. For example: [link]
Although, this was from much earlier on, this year.

But, I'd also go on these details, too: [link]
Which confirm them more. :nod:

Bottom line, I'm pretty sure he's returning, but don't entirely rely on me one hundred percent, either. Word is making it seem like he's returning, yet we have no obvious, concrete evidence either.

Either way... :dance:

DemonKaizoku Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
If you read the description of the picture, I do mention about the project. So, no. It wasn't discontinued or cancelled. It's actually still in the works. A problem Matt and I both tend to get when on creative streaks is being unable to control how many ideas, connections, or plot going on. While Matt technically DOES get some out and done so far, there are still some ideas he wants to do, but he never gets around to, if not just yet. XD

There is literally one moment when I work with thinking on the ideas of say "Reign of Darkness" (The either final or temporary title placement of the Discord/Celestia/Mane Six/ vs. Erebus story), and then out of nowhere - "Oh my gosh. I should do that. Involve J. Gander Hooter, where it leads to the scheme Darkwing Duck has been following for ages-" where I think on a totally different show and story topic that I may also be having in the works to develop. You turn on the switch, but basically where you sometimes can't turn it off. It's not so bad, just that it sometimes messes with one's mood and progress. Like, at one time you get so pumped with some ideas for a MLP:FIM fanfiction, but then get this boost for a Naruto, Darkwing Duck, or even a spark any author seeks, for their own original plot-type of story to hopefully one day publish.

With this story though? No, it hasn't stopped, nor had I ever stopped thinking about it. To be honest, I'm still excited. I can't wait to show the full extent of Erebus's personality/character. For awhile I never could really explain what existing character is at least even close to how he is like. Of course, Matt then reminded me, from something I had watched ages ago based on a comic series. Here's a little hint :XD: : [link]

So, that character is as close of a personality portrayal as I can find, so far. At least in just the character of his dialect and tones. No, Erebus is no carbon copy in the least, but related tone of theme? That's more of what I mean in being close to how Erebus is. Elegant/slightly posh (minus the obsession of v's) and holding even composed tones, but within the vocal tones is a creature descending further each day into madness, whether one can see it or not. He's not a loose cannon but quite smart and tactical, and one to think things through and properly; something that shows a level of "dark depth" in his regards and actions - be towards others or to show just how much he will do to get himself his own goals. I wanted his character to be impacting enough of a personality, in one that seemed fitting to a once higher form that was trapped on the plane by Celestia and Luna's parents of what eventually becomes Equestria, etc.

But, that is beside the main point. :P

Truth be told, I never stop thinking about it, but it also teams with me being diagnosed as OCD. I can be a bit compulsive, sometimes with certain things. When I say start working or developing an idea for the story, I THEN hear about some villain like King Sombra, and I'll hesitate and wonder if I should see how this villain plays out first before I progress much further, or how much about him is known. The only problem with this is I'm wanting it to be as show-connected as possible, if that makes any sense to you? That's like saying you will wait to see one thing and continue, but then say you hear a story about Trixie being involved with some mysterious amulet, it makes you (me that is) stop and think aloud "Oh, well... I should see how this turns out, too." It will just become a never-ending, complicated circle that repeats itself over and over. I worry, look too much into it, and obsess. I'm trying to keep it as canon as possible to the show, despite something being completely canon would mean I would be working with the show staff and know what ALL happens for every episode and one in the works. I don't work on the FIM, nor do I know everything. So, no matter how much I do or try, I can make it AS closely canon as possible, but it will still be a fanstory at the end of the day.

So, I basically said to Matt: "Yeah, after Magic Duel, I'm just going to keep going my way, no matter what comes up."
Matt: "That's what I kept telling you, BEFORE!" -__-
"Well yeah, but now I am only just realizing it, myself. ....Leave me alone ~ I can be complicaaaaated, sometimes~" D:

Yes, it is still in the works, and it's been my topic of thought and work, lately. Funny fact - the story itself was originally going to start some several months after Shining Armor and Princess Cadance's wedding, but there were quite gems in some of Season 3, so far, that it may instead begin sometime more after that time. There have been quite a few things in a couple or so of the Season 3 episodes that either had me smirk or laugh out loud at how perfectly matched it is to be some ideas I had, or to Erebus, himself.
