I’ve been feeling a lot of anger lately so I’ve been watching shows I used to watch as a kid, really innocent cute shows like Timothy Goes to School. Lilly is my absolute favourite character and I just had to draw her. She reminds me of my kid self.
I’ve drawn Demons, and now I’ve drawn some concepts for the Angels. These are just sketches so they aren’t anything amazing. But I’m hoping to colour them at some point along with the demons.
The Angels tend to be quite tall, with long but strong legs. Their legs are covered with feathery fur from behind. They have huge brush-like tails. The tips of their ears are curled. They have short manes but the furlocks are normally very long compared. Angels also have huuuuge wings, way bigger than Celestias. The bigger the wings, the more powerful the Angel. Their wings are never really seen folded in and are always held up high by their sides. Their eyes are always glowing. They have short but sharp teeth.
Their coat is normally white, with the occasional very light, pale sky colours like blue. The bright glow around their head is pretty much their halo.
Angels do not have a gender, unless they have possessed a pony of a certain gender. This is their original form. When possessing somebody, that pony’s eyes will glow bright white.
Edit: I will probably write more information on them when I line art and colour them.
I wanted to make Angel and Demon “pones” too, so here are the demons.They are part horse-like I guess? Their front hooves are replaced with dragon claws, as well as their huge, ripped dragon-like wings. This form of them is usually only seen in Hell. I drew a little sketch of what a pony would look like when possessed. Pitch black eyes with black blood seeping down their faces, and small fangs. Some demons know how to disguise themselves and blend in with the pony race. Others use possession to unleash Hell onto others.
Now to draw the Angels!

The Four Horses of the Apocalypse
I decided to design them for my Klausen universe (which means yes, they’ll appear in the much later comics). With lots of research and inspiration, I tried my best to make each horse look like a good enough interpretation for what they symbolize. (By the way I’m using the term “horses” instead of “ponies” because come on, “The four ponies of the Apocalypse” sounds kinda gay.) I DO plan to design a Conquest, although he may be more mentioned rather than featured in Klausen.
Each of these horses are a little taller than the average size of a regular stallion.
Pestilence is an underweight stallion, covered in boils and growths. He has rotten skin peeling off from his body, so badly that even part of his bones are exposed. You can see this if you look closely at his right hind leg. He’s surrounded by a plague of flies and insects. Maggots and vomit are dripping from his mouth. His mane and tail are in terrible condition (although that is nothing compared to everything else wrong with him). And of course, his eye hanging out from its socket. Pestilence himself is well, a pest. I also imagine that Pestilence reeks badly of rot and vomit and horrid things…
Famine is an extremely underweight stallion. The lack of nutrition has caused the hairs of his mane and tail to fall out. Some of his bones are exposed due to Famine being so starved that he’s attempted to devour himself. Due to his weak state, Famine can barely speak, as well as his struggle to walk as he drags his legs and body behind him.
War is the most vicious-looking, and sounding, as he now and again cries out in roars of pain and anger. He’s covered in incredibly strong armor that is impossible to be broken. He has barbed wire stuck into the flesh of his right hind leg. War also has a bit in his mouth, attached with huge, heavy chain reins. The fetlocks of his legs are ignited, as well as his tail. Blood is seeping down his body from underneath his armor. War always has streaks of blood down his face from his dark glowing eyes.
Death is the most peaceful of them. He doesn’t move much and always keeps his head held high. He’s usually seen with a ripped black cape. He has a white face marking. His rib cage is exposed, as well as his bottom jaw. He has completely plain white eyes and a long, silvery tail. Death will come to anybody who touches him.
I had so much fun designing these. They are only sketches for now but I can’t wait to line art and colour these all.
I wanted to draw a legit horse, so I drew Joen as a horse, as if he were a horse in a riding school. I bet he’d be one of those really slow, lazy horses that would suddenly bolt or buck you off of his back when you least expected it lol
Quite an old OC, nearly as old as Joen. I decided to redesign him because I decided he will play an important role in the later comics of Klausen (which won’t happen for a long long while yet but yeah)
His name is Axe.
He’s a young, mindless, violent stallion who gets a kick out of other ponies pain. He is literally that cruel and always has been. Axe has knifed his flank to cover up any symbols that would appear, because he thinks cutie marks are gay as fuck.
Axe isn’t his real name, (I mean who would name their kid Axe? pff) but I’m too lazy to think of a real name, I’ll leave that up to the fans to headcanon for themselves.
Axe is usually seen with the clothes he’s wearing in the first image, unless he’s fucking around with a mare. Speaking of which, he DOES have a girlfriend called Heather, who is a bit of a violent bitch herself, but neither of them are faithful to each other, and neither of them care if the other sleeps around with others.
Axe carries a baseball bat around with him as his own weapon, mainly for protection or if he ever gets into a fight. If Axe does get into a fight, nine times out of ten he’s the one walking away without a scratch. He’s a pretty good fighter, despite having missing teeth from fights in the past.
Little does Axe know that he will soon obtain a similar power to Joen and Roderich. (
Axe is a little based off of Vyvyan from The Young Ones. Mindless and violent. Except Axe is probably way worse, lol
Axe isn’t afraid of anything, and never cries at anything. He’s not afraid to insult ponies and push the wrong buttons, just for his own amusement.
So yeah, basically, don’t let this guy go anywhere near tumblr people.
I made the mail mare Derpy! (Or Ditzy Doo or whatever). I so wanna throw her in the Loner Dash story at some point because why not. yEEAAH She’s pretty much like the fanon mail Derpy’s except she doesn’t love Whooves or anything lol
I like to imagine her as maybe a bit of a loner who tries to fit in with everyone but at the same time is very carefree. She doesn’t get sad much and when she does she manages to quickly cheer herself up.
I like to imagine Derpy always randomly breaking out into song, being…not the best of singers, but adorable at the same time. Oh gersh you know what, it’s really late here, I’m so tired, I’d write more, but my brain is so dead. XD
look at that face
