Request/Commission for a Friend. Artists of KYM, come in!

Hello folks.
Let’s quickly and simply present my request.
I have a friend who enjoys a lot of things, including memes and ponies. She happens to, at least, have liked the Facebook page about KYM. I don’t know if she made an account on the site. I hope not because I want to make a surprise for her upcoming birthday on January 3rd.

I would like any artist from the site who wants to participate to either draw something from her as a gift or, even better, make a video mashup/MAD/YTP just for her.
As much as I want to, I don’t have the required skills to do it myself. I’m not that good of a drawer and I can’t do anything with video-remixing stuff.

She is gonna be 21, she is a Potterhead, sort of a fan of Dr.Who, she LOVES MLP (her favorite character being Fluttershy), among others. She also likes Deadpool as a character.
To sum it up, she is your typical (internet) fangirl. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if she had a Tumblr as well…

Her first name is Lucie.

Thank you in advance for any submission (a simple MLP-related gift signed “Happy birthday Lucie” for her is more than enough).

Well, RandomMan told me about the Drawing Thread but I’m interested in either a drawing creation or a video creation so I prefered making my own thread.

If you people don’t mind my making a KYM-tan pony, I’ve got one lying around that I made for the Pony Gen.

I can do a lot more than sunglasses; that’s just what I had at the moment. I could do a good deal of stuff, but I’ll be a little strapped for time so it couldn’t be too complicated.

Funnily enough, I was going to bump your thread anyway, I have come here to say the possiblity of me even trying to do anything is pretty much gone because I have mock exams, meaning revision and then I’m busy at Christmas…

Might I give it a go? I mean, my drawing skills a kinda rusty but I might give it ago, if you allow me.

Also, you said she likes MLP and a bit of Dr.Who. Does she like the Time Turner?

She likes a plethora of TV shows. I’ve seen her joking about Sherlock once.
Aside from that, I don’t really know much of the details so I don’t know ^^

Guys. that’s very kind of you all! Actually, I wasn’t expecting to flood her with many submissions but I’m sure she’ll be more than glad!

Right, here’s what I’ve accomplished in the last two hours since you reminded me over the course of the last month or so.

First off, there are no legs, obviously, because I haven’t worked out exactly what I want to do with them. Secondly, it’s basically a huge amalgamation of resources from other ponies because I’m using new Flash builds that haven’t been adapted to every pony yet, so a lot of the stuff doesn’t match up. There are no eye movements or facial expressions, because I haven’t got around to that, and a lot of the animation is rusty because I made it in two hours I made it in two hours.

Anyways, feel free to criticize.

Edit: To put into perspective the working pace of the average pony animator, here’s what I’ve accomplished in the last twenty minutes. Still assuming Lucie accualy is Emi

And here is the finished product. Feel free to point out anything you think oughtta be changed, and I’ll get on that as soon as I can. It does look a lot better with legs, I reckon.
