Make Like a Bee... by MusicalCombusken Make Like a Bee... by MusicalCombusken
...AND BUZZ OFF!

Gilda is a Griffon from MLP: FIM. Now, I watched her episode to see her as a character - I think she's a bitch, but I like her. Not only because she's a Griffin, but because she's pretty competitive and I just really fell in love with her design.

Also, please don't hate on the art because of her character. =\ Yes, I'm aware she roared at fucking Fluttershy, but I really don't think that has ANYTHING to do with the god damn artwork. So please don't shot the Fluttershy related comments.

Gilda (C) MLP FIM
Artwork by me.

This is an amazing drawing.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who can see past what Gilda has done, and instead appreciate who she is.
Whenever I say I like her, the fist response I get is "But she made FlutterShy Cry!", and it's starting to get to me a little.

awesome, Gilda's one of my faves too and her design makes her a BA. I could care less that she roared at Fluttershy, it was Pinkie's fault in the first place for annoying Gilda to the point of getting pissed off, yay or nay?

I really want this character to get a redemption episode. Maybe then the Bronies will shut up about her and stop bashing gryphons.

YES. A redemption episode. Goodness, I just wanna see her again (if she wasn't brought up again during the series or something).

Finally, some Gilda art. I really liked the character and thought she had some true potential--they even left the door open for reconciliation at the end of her sole episode!

But she yelled at the fandom darling, so now almost no one expands on that potential, ever. Talk about a shame. ;_;

I've heard of her. ...As in, yesterday. Ha ha. I don't watch MLP.

Hey, come on, she had a bad day. All women snap >.>

Griffins rule. Although something seems odd about her talon...I love how she looks :3

<Is is told to keep personal feelings about Gilda to himself

You...you don't want me to express my true feelings for Gilda? Because I love her. I love her so much that it hurts. I really hope she and Trixie weren't one shots and will get redemptions in future episodes.

If you don't want me to do that though, then it's fine I guess. Still gonna fave it.

I guess I'll edit that part of the description. I just didnt want HATE commnets because I know there is people that dislike Gilda (I don't get why because I love her), but because of her fucking roar to Fluttershy.

So, whatever I guess I'll edit that out, I just didn't want hate comments is all. :P

Oh, I do know the feeling. Truth be told, I was one of the people you're trying to discourage at one point. I didn't actually hate Gilda mind you, I just severely disliked that she...well, you know.

I can't stand it when people hate characters like Rainbow Dash, Gilda and Trixie because of their personality quirks. Can you?

Oh I see what you mean. =[

I LOVE Gilda and Rainbow Dash. Trixie wasn't my favorite, I'll put it at that. But I don't HATE her. xD But I mean, they ARE good characters and their personalities I think give a different taste during the show. I enjoy them a lot - well from the few episodes I saw I liked them. =]

Trixie's my absolute favorite unicorn other than Twilight Sparkle. I think Sethisto had a hand in making me feel that way, but it mostly happened on it's own.

I actually saw Rainbow Dash as best pony before I had some time to watch the show more and develop more favorites. If I was asked why, I'd have to attribute it to her tomboyish nature, (I think tomboys are adorable)love of flight, cockiness, and those absolutely irresistible voice cracks.

As for Gilda, gryphons were already my favorite mythical creature long before I discovered FiM, so maybe I was a little biased when I first saw Griffon the Brush Off, but that doesn't mean that was the only reason I fell in love with her.

Tl;dr Gilda, Trixie and Dash are awesome, despite having personality quirks that many bronies see as negative.

I don't follow the show at all so I have no opinion of this character, sounds funny though. You painted it nicely and the colors you chose mesh well together. It's a nice change from the style the show uses, which people try to imitate all the time.

Someone tried to get me to watch the first episode and I couldn't make it past the first five minutes lol. It's kind of scary how popular it's gotten and how attached some people have gotten to some of the characters if you're expecting negative comments just because this one yelled at Fluttershy or whatever. ._.

Ahaa xD I like the character because she's not a pony. -w- And griffins are generally cool. =3

I watched like 5 episodes. It's cute, but I'm not going to be nuts over it. ^..^; Yeah, it is scary! XD

Not being a MLP fan i'm not really influenced at all by my hate for it yelling at fluttershy. In fact thats a plus. (which one is fluttershy? Actually I don't care.)

Anyway. Looks nice.. tho.. somewhat... out of place. It would take some work to get a classical painting style to match well with the very vector-ey hard-edged style of MLP and look really stunning. I love the colors as usual, that purple is nice. Styles clash a bit to me tho.

I'm not a fan myself, I just know people dislike this character for roaring and being rude and whatnot. Flutterhy is the yellow pony with the pink hair. Very quite.

And thanks for the comment!

you know just to figure out what exactly was bothering me about his pic I had to look up the actual character. Overall this is really nice, I think the only thing that I don't like is the way her feathers don't come down a bit more on her arms. I dunno why but it is catching my eye.
After re-examining this tho I retract the statement I made about the styles. I especially like how you blended the colors on the back of her neck and the red part of her body. Transitions really well.
