I’ve been re imagining the characters of The Last Unicorn into perler art the last few weeks and this came to mind. I’ve seen The Last Unicorn in My Little Pony style to some extent here and there but wanted to do my own take on it.
I’ve submitted it to a few sites and for now if you’d like to purchase the design on a shirt you may go through my TeePublic site, or other items in my Redbubble.
After seeing the positive feedback on my “Bad Timberwolf” design I thought I would do a little research and see if there had been any kind of 11th doctor pony in the background of the show and if so, Who he was traveling with. I love the Rose storyline in Doctor Who, so when I saw Rose Luck and Doctor Hooves kicking around I KNEW it was up to me to create something for them.
I was able to locate what the MLP Wiki calls “Raggedy Doctor” Which also points to a shirt at the site We Love Fine, that had three earth ponies labeled IX, X & XI, which was the pony in this design. His companion in the screen shot here….
After some more Twili-style research I found her name was Sea Swirl. It seemed too perfect. A sea, afterall, is just a bigger Pond right? Pond referring to The Doctor’s companion Amy Pond. I wanted to include things I thought were important about Amy, her time as a companion and Rory, the last Centurion. I found it interesting that even though there were some scary monsters lurking in corners the 11th always seemed to have a smile on his face. Since I included “Mad Pony with a box” in Gallifreyan in my first design I wanted to use the language again but felt that “Bowties are cool” felt more fitting this time around. In hindsight I think I should have used “Allon-sy” or another 10-ism in my first design but I digress!
I finished the piece this past Thursday and put it up for sale on my TeePublic site.
On Saturday the Official David Tennant Facebook site shared my design!
As of right now it has over 3,000 likes and 500 shares!!! I cannot believe they shared my little old design. I literally did a spit take and got water on my computer monitor! I hope they saw “Bad Timberwolf” too, being that is the David Tennant pony after all, with his Rose.
