Lyra the Seapony meets Bonbon by Retaya Lyra the Seapony meets Bonbon by Retaya
I'm kind of a fan of Seapony Lyra. ^^

Really, no matter what incarnation of the Lyra character I can think of, I think there seems to be an overlying theme of Lyra being an outsider, for various reasons. And sometimes that reason is that she's a seapony who is getting used to landpony society.

This picture is supposed to be their first meeting. Lyra hasn't had a very fun day, and somehow ended up being violently thrown against a beach by a storm. Hours later she has lost all hope, and then Bonbon appears, quite shocked to find a seapony on the beach since only moments ago she had thought seaponys were just a myth. But being a kind hearted pony, Bonbon's first instinct is to try to save Lyra's life.

Well, she is a bit faded out. But that's intentional because she's been stuck on shore and stuff. And she's also a seapony, so there's that too. But I'm going to have to disagree with you otherwise. I think she looks very much like Lyra.

For being an amphibious lifeform, it looks like she's about on death's door.

Well, I can't know what was in your musical, as I've never seen it. But I'm fairly certain that in the Disney Movie, it was Eric who had to be rescued by Ariel and not the other way around, as you have suggested. O:

Awwww... Don't die li'l seapony. :( I hope BonBon can help her.

Great picture, I like the li'l story behind it to. The storm in the distance is a nice detail, I like how the beach looks, as well as the style of the pic. Also nice job making Seapony Lyra look a bit more dried-out, and sick/injured looking. I hate to admit it, but I like these kinda "sad/heart-rending" pony pics. (Sad ponies are just to adorable for words.)

Some people draw seaponies like that. But this one is loosely based on the ones seen in G1. [link]
