gallant grit ref sheet by ivyhaze gallant grit ref sheet by ivyhaze
when i created her and designed her cutie mark, all i knew is that i wanted it
to have some resemblance to her father's cutie mark, as well as i wanted it to
be silvery and represent her talent. i was completely unaware of caramel's cutie
mark at the time, and like my good friend CastoroChiaro said: "There's several
ponies on the show with repeated cutie marks, so I say it's honestly more true to
canon to keep it as it is. An hourglass shows up EVERYWHERE, for example." so
please don't comment on her cutie mark. 

this is a character you will be seeing a lot more of. i'm planning on drawing her a lot,
telling stories of her past and maybe even a couple of comics. she was originally a foal
off a breedable between my erin go bragh and HitMeWithBrokenLeave's texas,
though texas will not actually be her mother.

full name: gallant grit
nickname: gallant / grit
gender: mare
age: 16 (human years)
birthday: april 2nd
type: earth pony
element: hope & determination
cutie mark: three downwards-facing silver horse shoes
talent: running fast, gracefully & with precision
occupation: rodeo champion
nationality: equestrian
location: dodge junction
likes: the rodeo, running, hiking, nature, swimming, exploring
dislikes: dishonesty, discrimination, cheating, being the center of attention
fears: never finding her roots, letting her family down, not doing her best
sexual orientation & relationship status: straight & single (not really looking)
special somepony: no one at the moment
family: her father is erin go bragh, though they've never met.
positive characteristics: brave, independent, honest, intelligent, passionate
negative characteristics: competetive, inverted, selfish, emotional, overthinks everything
voice actor: lauren cohan
theme songs: coming soon...

more information coming soon...

This cowgirl pony is a pony I would put on the show if I worked there. Very clever making her related to shamrock saint. I hope she finds him soon. Is very adorable and color is fantastic. Love the way she is drawn. Description is very detailed. The impact is very great and the fans are loving. Is very orignal and the bandanna looks good on her. Hair is very much like the cowgirl that she is. Cutie Mark is almost like caramel's. I would like to see more of your work. This is Leah Frederick and have a very nice day.

Where do I begin? The coloration is absolutely perfect, the blue contrasts nicely with the tan while the green matches the tan. Her eyes are quite piercing, she seems like that southern belle who has a doctorate in kicking flank. The accessories are quite fitting; practical, simple, yet somehow they add another layer of complexity. I love how you did the backstory and information, that just adds so much to the character and makes you feel like you know the character that much more and can connect with her on a personal level. Well done, I would like to use this format for my concept art in the future, if that's okay with you. Definitely a favourite!

Sorry for the late reply, didn't see your response.

I meant shades of color.  Like, what is that particular shade of blue called, same for green, grey, etc.

And even aside from colors, great character design as well!

There's several ponies on the show with repeated cutie marks, so I say it's honestly more true to canon to keep it as it is. An hourglass shows up EVERYWHERE, for example.

ANYWAYS she's superly cute, gosh. I hope she and her daddio can reunite at some point.

Not a problem! You are the one who inspired me to start making pony characters. Though, mine aren't as amazing as yours. I love them anyway though.
