Halo by Starbolt-81
Halo
Gotten back into creative mode again finally! I have been incredibly un-artistic lately, so i'm happy to have gotten something done for a change. As for this new OC, I wanted to try something a little different from most Pegasi, taking a few cues from the designs of ponies like Princess Cadance or Fleur Dis Lee (apparently thats her proper name), so shes a bit taller and leaner than average. Don't let her good looks fool ya though, she's quite the flier :)
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Halo is a Pegasus with a great love of flying high, she is currently the holder of the Royal Canterlot Hall of Records achievement for the highest ever unassisted Pegasus flight, at an impressive 30,200 feet. In order for this feat to be recognized by the Hall of Records, the attempt must be made without the use of any aids, such as oxygen tanks. This makes flight increasingly difficult at heights over 22,000 feet when the air becomes thinner, and again at 30,000 feet when the temperatures drop to around –45 °C, which is enough to test even a Pegasus' resistance to the cold.
Halo spent 3 months training at high altitudes in preparation for the record attempt, as well as a month in the Frozen North on the outskirts of the Crystal Empire acclimatising to the cold. The training paid off however, and setting off from her departure point at Cloudsdale, Halo soared into the record books.

"The wind was biting cold, and it took great effort just to breathe. But it was worth it. From up there I could see all of Equestria unfolding before me, and the horizon curving away in all directions. I felt as though I could reach up and touch Celestias sun, or pluck a star from Lunas sky. It was beautiful." - Halo, following her induction into the Hall of Records.

For those wondering about the name I chose, the term H.A.L.O - High Altitude Low Orbit (or High Altitude Low Opening), is a method of delivering personnel, equipment, and supplies from a transport aircraft at a high altitude via free fall parachute insertion.

Welcome to my little corner of DeviantArt!

I created this account many years ago with the promise of reintroducing myself to sketching and digital artwork, having been quite a prolific sketcher/scribbler back in school. Unfortunately that never amounted to anything (read: im lazy) until the craziest and most unlikely of things would kickstart my creativity once more: My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic. Had you told me back when i created this profile that it would be filled with ponies, I might have laughed at you :P

But here I am, sketching away, getting acquainted with the art of digital vectoring and enjoying the feedback from people about the stuff i do. So please, enjoy my gallery and feel free to leave a comment!

Son Twilight by Starbolt-81

So yeah, as you might have guessed I (and most of the fandom) saw a parallel between the fight scene in the final episode and a certain anime we all love...... AND IT WAS AWESOME. :D

All in all, a great way to wrap up a good season. Ancient enemies, fallen friends and desperate plans. And we finally see the box opened! Now the stage is set for some interesting things in Season 5, I cant wait :D
On the down side I still don't like the rainbow power thing, and its inclusion in the episode is standard toy line selling, but if that's the worst we endure I guess we cant complain too much.

So, now we find ways to keep ourselves entertained until next season, I might finally start working on stuff thats been sitting around on my hard drive for ages. :P

Also, welcome to all my new watchers, glad to have you here :iconpinkiepieplz:

If they made an episode featuring Starswirl the bearded, which celebrity voice would you want them to use?
