Steampunkshy by NastyLady Steampunkshy by NastyLady
So here she is, the fifth Steampunk Pony, Fluttershy.
I tried to make her more demure than the other ponies. And I have to admit, I quite like this dress. It's... nice. However, I don't know why, the butterfly staple is my favourite detail here.

Like I gave other ponies "proffesions" or how should it be called, I simply can't think of anything for Fluttershy. While drawing, I was thinking about quiet, polite girl from the city, and now I have no idea how to sorta "sum it up" in one or two words. The Girl sounds weird.

If you have any better ideas just share them. I'd be grateful.

Thank you, :iconprincesslunaftw: for "The Timid"!

I lurv it. And, I know it has been a really long time since you made this, but Fluttershy might fit as a medic?
NastyLady Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yea, she would make a great medic. You know, this drawing is very old, from the times the Steampunk series was only at its very beginning and I didn't get the idea for professions yet. 
I don't think I remake her, though. I don't have time nor will, really.
Scoot0i0i08 Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah I understand
WhitePaladinWings Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2014
Well... I like the drawing but I think there was so much more that could be done with her as a character...
Why not a biologist of some sort? Y'know, magnifying lens strapped to her eye, mice poking from her oversized white coat's pockets, mane tied back in a messy bun... 

I know you're not as active as you used to be but I just thought I'd toss the idea. Still a very nice piece btw.
NastyLady Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, this is a very old piece, from the times when this steampunk collection consisted of like three or four ponies. And my ideas weren't as... specific and profession-oriented as later.
Your idea is quite nice, but I doubt I will do anything about it. I'm not a big fan of Fluttershy and drawing her isn't as fun as drawing some other characters. 

But thank you!

I'd always wondered where this came from. Funny what a search for "Cheerilee" will bring up.

"The Debutante"

Wiki: "from the French débutante, "female beginner") is a girl or young lady from an aristocratic or upper class family who has reached the age of maturity and, as a new adult, is introduced to society at a formal "debut" presentation. Originally, it meant the young woman was eligible to marry, and part of the purpose was to display her to eligible bachelors and their families with a view to marriage within a select upper class circle. Debutantes may be recommended by a distinguished committee or sponsored by an established member of elite society."

Oooh, that one is very nice too! But a bit late. I like the idea, though.

how on earth do you draw like that?!
NastyLady Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Hella practice. And a bit of observation skills.
TheExhorsecist Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2013
Oh, hey: how about "The Spiritualist?"

Steampunk emphasizes the technological aspect of the Victorian era. But there was a strong parallel current of mysticism throughout the 19th century. Part of it was in reaction to the mechanization and materialism of the time, but there was also a sincere belief among many that supernatural forces could be identified and described the way heat, electricity and light had been in the previous century.

Ernest Holmes, a member of the New Thought movement (a mystical school of the the American Pacific Coast in the 1880's) seems to sum up Fluttershy quite nicely:

"A mystic is not a mysterious person; but is one who has a deep, inner sense of Life and Unity with the Whole."
NastyLady Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Ooh, actually I have somepony, who's gonna be a spiritualist, in mind. But that's a secret!
TheExhorsecist Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013
I'll look forward to finding out who, then!

Hey there. I was wondering if you'd mind me using this and some of your other Steampunk ponies for a YouTube project I'm working on. Obviously the credit would go to you.
NastyLady Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
If you credit me, then no problem.

This reminds me of the personality of Henry Cavendish the shy genius. His shyness made those who "sought his views... speak as if into vacancy. If their remarks were...worthy, they might receive a mumbled reply, but more often than not they would hear a peeved squeak (his voice appears to have been high-pitched) and turn to find an actual vacancy and the sight of Cavendish fleeing to find a more peaceful corner" (Recall Twilight's first encounter with Fluttershy?)
twirltheflag Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012
She's beautiful!
The wings are amazing. The dress is also very beautiful and the point of view of which we see her is a nice change from the usual angle we see your Stempunk ponies.
