The Gypsy Bard by Cooltomorrowkid The Gypsy Bard by Cooltomorrowkid
The most energetic, topsy-turviest pony around - Clopinkie...?


Just a quick idea that came to mind this morning, and came to reality soon afterward. I skimped on some of the traditional detail such as in Pinkie's mane and tail and the bells on the sash in an effort to keep it looking more simplistic. I finally got around to experimenting with solid shading instead of the blur-shading I usually use - looks nice, I think.

For those uncultured swines out there, this is a reference to the character Clopin Trouillefou, a literal gypsy bard, as he appears in Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame. I figured their personalities were something in the same vein, so why not do a little crossover? :)
I've been under a lot of stress lately, so this was pretty nice for taking my mind off of things for a while.

Bravo sir. If I knew how to do that "you're entitled to one free internet" coupon icon, I'd use that. But I don't so this will just have to do...

This is possibly the greatest crossover I've never even considered before.

Their personalities are exactly the same, if certain infamous fanfics starring Pinkie Pie are anything to go by. ;)  Granted, Clopin never tried carving Quasi or Phoebus up into frosted desserts, but I wouldn't put it past the book version to try it.

Heh, i think those clothes are very fitting for her =P also, i like the solid shading too, at times its way better than blurs ( or at least, less rage inducing =P )

Say, have you seen the My Little Disney videos on YouTube? Pinkie plays this role in Notre Dame videos.
