Morpheus, the Pony King of Dreams by The-Clockwork-Crow Morpheus, the Pony King of Dreams by The-Clockwork-Crow
Morpheus is more or less the My Little Pony equivalent of The Sandman, so he's the king of dreams and sleep (he's even named after the Greek god of dreams). He can make any pony sleep with his magic 'sand', and weave a good-or bad dream for them.
Probably my only alicorn OC I'll make, so, eh :U

Aww, nah not really, I'm sure there's plenty of other 'Pony of dreams'. Heck we found out in one of the newest episodes that she actually does appear in nightmares. So really she fits the role better than this guy

Just give him a backstory.
Did he receive his magic sand as a gift?Or does he create it?
Where is this kingdom located?
How did he get his cutiemark?
Does he have a wife?

I don't respond to your aggressiveness feignly veiled as 'critique'. I also am not planning to use this character at this time so I'm not going to bother updating him for YOUR peace of mind. Refer to my comment before from your other comment and maybe take it down a notch on the aggression. Seriously I would have been happy for a nice criticism but your attitude's got you slamming into a wall at this point.

Considering the colors of your ponies I don't think you're one to talk about color scheme... He's meant to look earthy like sand-you know like the sandman who puts people to sleep? Ties into the whole king of dreams concept.
As for backstory considering he's an alicorn and one I drew on a whim, I obviously had no intention of ever really using him for something at the time. Also if you knew mythology you'd know Morpheus was the God of dreams in Greek myth, hence his name. Also his cutiemark is a closed eye. Like someone sleeping.
As for your comment regarding his gender-WOW is being a feminine male such a fucking crime-? You're not the first to call some of my guys girly as an insult-which is really just stating the obvious but I don't understand this mentality that guys can't be pretty, like being anything associated with feminine is bad-because what you're saying at the core is that being FEMALE is BAD which it shouldn't be. That's internalized mysogyny right there congrats.

my ponies having bad color scheme?I guess we had different styles.And as someone without much of an interest with mythology, I wouldn't understand the backstory, so I guess your right on the whole backstory.
As for the cutiemark, I just can't see it as that.It looks more like a crown or a corner-of-paper sun.
What made me think he looked more like a girl is that his mane kind of has a ponytail on it, and that yellow thing looks like a hairclip;& the tail looks fluttershy-ish.And WOAH WOAH WOAH, how in the HELL am i saying being female is bad?How do you get 'looks like a girl'='Being a girl is bad'?!

Because you're implying, since this is a 'critique', that him 'looking like a girl' is negative, otherwise it wouldn't be addressed. If it didn't matter you wouldn't have brought it up.

That's a lot of glitter. OAO

(But overall, it's really really pretty. Colors kind of make me think of a genie somehow.)

Why do all your ponies end up looking feminine in some way? XD

Not how I expected the wings to turn out, though I only saw the sketch before. This seems a lot better than my idea.

Thanks, I figured with all his red, gold and earthy colors, that blue eyes would be the prefect offset to the rest of the scheme 'v'
