Entry for the Handdrawn Contest.
Came up with Feather Princess for my name, but switched it round cuz it fitted the backstory I came up with better. XD
Poor Feather the pegasus was completely unprepared for alicornhood. She ought to have been expecting it, after singlehandedly fighting off a giant tornado that threatened to engulf Canterlot, but she wasn't. After all, it was to her mind only what any other pony would have done. Yet, she was made a princess, and to her mind, only disaster could come of her having a horn.
Base: mlp Base by ~PeppermintBowtie on deviantART
Since I am horribly clumsy, this backstory suits me. XD My main issue with the suggested bases was that they were really meant for making vector ponies, rather than pixel art. I suppose with a posh paint programme you could get rid of the fuzziness round the lines, but that's beyond me and MS Paint, so I just searched for a pony pixel base instead.
