Someone needs to draw Morphin. Like they did with Pupa. As an egg, grub, current, and adult. Then draw him with his mom.

Hmmm, maybe. Except Morphin isn't that prominent a character.

You're welcome :)

I actually only take commissions or trades. My commissions are cheap though C:
10 dollars for ink
15 for graphite shaded
20 for full digital color.

Hey, MagicMan001, let me ask you something: how much have you thought about the Diamond Dogs

I mean, so far their appearance in canon had been limited to an episode in MLP FIM Season 1, and in it they are portrayed as a bunch of barely articulate underground dwelling savages who enslave gem-sensitive ponies (i.e. Rarity) to mine gemstones for them, but are pathetic enough to be defeated just by Rarity whining to them enough that they practically gave her back to her friends.

And I thought to myself - is that really all there is to these buggers? I mean, it's a really sad state of affairs for a sentient species if they are all like this bunch of losers. The show never gave any other background details on their culture, their civilization and customs, never mind a proper ethnic identity.

Is there a more sophistocated side to the Diamond Dogs themselves, if not now, then perhaps long ago before they degenerate into this level of simplicity? 

Personally, I think Rover and the gang we saw on TV are, or are descendants of, Diamond Dogs that were exiled from their main civilization into the wilds like the Everfree Forest, and that in actuality, Diamond Dogs are like the Dwarves of D&D or Lord of the Rings - a reclusive but brilliant race of miners, smiths and craft-makers, living in great underground cities or mountain fortresses where they could mine and refine ores, make all kinds of jewelry and crafts, forge tools and weapons of the finest quality and caliber. And if they are those especially smart types of dwarves like in Warcraft, they could also be traders, engineers and scientists!

Just think of the potential there is to these Diamond Dogs! It certainly is better to portray them as a proud people who could stand in the light, than being degenerates cowering in darkness, just like you are doing with the Changelings in your stories.

What do you think?

Hmm, that is a very excellent point. While I'm not as interested in them as I am changelings, I am going to do something with them.

I personally base their ethnicity and civilization off of Catholic Immigrants from 'the old country', such as Ireland, Italy and Poland, which is why, in my fic, many of them are made police officers. I see them a species of predominantly proud, blue-colour hard working labourers, building the backbone of many economies.
