This is a concept piece for the Pony Emblem project for the promoted form of Madmax.
Truth be told, I’m rather nervous about this design, because Madmax is miles ahead of me as an artist. Mind, so are the artists for the canon characters, so I guess it might be because being part of the fandom makes her seem closer. Anyway, enough rambling.
Luckily a lot of her ponysona’s original design came over, so the shoes, glasses and hair elastics (and therefore, hairstyle) stayed.
The one big thing she requested was described as a “thief coat.” I took a bit of inspiration from FE10’s Volke, as might be noticed by the large collar. The rest I had to adapt to pony form, so a lot of the extra stitches and doodads didn’t really work. I added something to the waist that isn’t actually a belt. In fact, I don’t really know what it is (yay, now I’m thinking like a real JRPG designer!). Um, added some trim to the bottom and made the sleeves detached (partly inspired by the sleeves in her dancing ponysona piece). Also added a jeweled tiara and anklet for some extra “lordliness” feel.
I would imagine the “belt” are stitches to try to keep the thief coat together, a bit raggedy, a bit lordy lord lord!
