Thank you both! ♡

I too did not realise this and now I’m trying to figure it out… I don’t post my art anywhere at all online so I’m unsure how to go about this but I’ve given the G5 prompt a go and want to see what it’s like to share mine
As for that, personally I signed up for an Imgur account a while back and am using that. I'm not sure about the individual images but I know the account itself is private, so the galleries of my uploads are only available to me. There are others and they may be better but Ingur does work, if you want to use it.

I upload my photos to imgur and keep the image on 'hidden' so that it's not public!

Thank you StormMaeker and Skybreeze

Ok yes thanks, I have already a ponysta then I guess, I also created 8 other ponies (customs) for this Halloween and draw them as well! I will show you when all is done but unfortunately I have not received the hair yet and I might not for a while (post is very slow atm) so you may have to look at bold customs XD sorry in advance hahaha

@Sassarazzmadazzles - I love her! Thanks so much!!

@Glistening Rainlight - Your G5 makeover is very nice, I love the peaceful feeling of it!

@Truly_Scrumptious - Your style is already very G5, but I am so in love with the pose and your traditional works! As a "shiny things" fan I always appreciate the added touches.

I went the Imgur route. Thanks, everyone!
Well… I’m still trying to figure out how to use it. It keeps saying on the insert picture that “Image cannot be loaded from the passed link”?

(Edited by mod to help out. ;) )

Having said that, this is ‘My Pony’. Not exactly a name but my design doesn’t have a name. Or personality. Or a backstory. I came up with the design when I was perhaps 12 or 13. Just a blue pegasus really. The only G5 differences are the wings having more colours, dark blue hoover, lighter fur around the hooves and belly

I swear Po just rocks everything she's in. xD I am a fan! I do love your spooky Skybreeze, too! She's really cute!

Cute! I've always loved your pony's colors anyway haha, it's nice to see a fullbody version of them! And I actually love the lighter feathers!

Also wow, honestly that you can go that long without coming up with any other attributes for your character other than strictly their appearance is frankly a feat in and of itself. I genuinely couldn't do that if I tried, if I somehow by some miracle managed it while I was awake I'd end up doing it in my sleep.

My pony personalities usually start with the impressions I innately get from their designs and they often develop on their own, free of me consciously trying to make it happen. Even my own persona in a way, happened like that. I did try to come up with a personality for her next thing I knew she'd chosen something completely different for herself.

As for the image issue, is that an error you were getting here on MLPTP? Because my guess is that maybe you were using the wrong link? You have to use the direct image link, ending in something like .png or .jpg.

When I was 12 or 13, I found that DeviantArt My Little Pony OC creator and played about on that and this design is what just felt right for me. My pony just happens to have the same-ish colour scheme as Minuette. Over the years I have scribbled the pony but when I have tried to come up with a name and cutie mark, nothing seems to have really stuck and now I’m 22! :lolpony:
Most of my scribbles of the pony have also been ponies that weren’t supposed to be this one but ended up being…

With the image issue, yes it was here at the TP. You could be right with the link being wrong somehow. I’ve never used Imgur before until now so I probably did something wrong. One of the mods helped out which I am thankful for :ponylove:

It's so wild how such a seemingly small age difference makes such a big difference in which MLP creators we're first exposed to. xD I'm 27, and when I was first looking at pony creators there were a couple of G3-ish-styled ones and that was about it, since G4 wasn't even a thing yet. I did use one to create one of my former personas, as well.

There is definitely a charm in having a truly blank character or persona, I feel. No expectations, none of this issue that I have of having to change personas every so often when the way you see yourself changes. It seems really simple and I kinda envy that haha

As for imgur, I don't know what page you're on when you're trying to get the link, but if you go to you gallery via "Images" (found by clicking on your profile icon in the upper right of the page) and left-click on the image you want to use, a pop-up will show up with a bunch of link options. You'll want to copy the one that says "Direct Link", not the one that says "Image Link".

Po is the embodiment of sass! lol I love her so much, shes everything im not lol
And sassy characters are often some of my favorites. xD I can totally relate to that last bit though.

I feel like I'm gonna have to come up with some kind of pony thing to participate in this.

Like a plumber? The pipes I mentioned drawing are background props in a animation I haven't figured out yet. Maybe I could make a pony out of the pipes?

There are always robot ponies or if you wanted perhaps you could play into the artwork you do to create a style that's quite bizarre and impressionistic. Or perhaps Skybreeze could consider adding more environmental prompts that give you a better chance of inclusion? Personally I think that could be fun too.

I'd like that since I suck at drawing living stuff and main focous on buildings and cars, and maybe I'll stop drawing conduits long enough to participate.

You could make a transformer type pony if some sort. Or do some photography, if something else creative too. Remember this isn’t just drawing. ;)
