What's Your Cutie Mark?
« on: June 30, 2011, 06:53:20 pm »
For those of you who don't know, a cutie mark is an image which appears on one's flank (upper thigh) which describes your "special talent" or trait that sets you apart from others. It can be something about your personality, what you do or what you aim to be. And while you're at it, why not tell us your pony name?

You can either describe what it would look like, or make an image and post it! Here's what I see mine to be.


The pen and ink in the front show that I like to write, and the world in the background shows that I like to create my own worlds when I write. My pony name would be Authrite, a portmanteau of author and write.

So go ahead, what's yours?

Mine, personally, would be something tennis related. Tennis racquet and/or tennis balls.

My fursona on the other hand, would be either a peanut butter cup (with a bite taken out) or a target. Come to think of it, he actually does have a target marking kinda on the outside of of his upper right thigh... But if he were to be ponified, I'd probably go with the peanut butter cup. It's more cute and less like hunting practice.

Hmm. I'm really not sure :o.

Throughout my life, I've always been really really good at picking up the basics of new skills, but never have the patience to delve deeper into any of the things. A jack of all trades and a master of none, I guess. Maybe something music related?

There are a few Ponies out there whose cutie marks I just..don't understand.

Derpy. Her special talent is..bubbles.

There are two more where I've thought this as well. The one with the carrots and the one with the cherries. What sort of special talent is carrots :o!?

Its probably something similar to Applejack's family.

Mine would probably be something Art related, probably a general combination of the various art forms I enjoy.(Music, Writing, Drawing.)

I knew what my talent would be, but took me a while to figure out a cutie mark or name. I finally came up with them. My favorite hobby is to tinker and play with various lighting equipment and visualization tools like what you'd see at a dance club or con dances (of which I've worked a few). So I decided my mark and and name would be about the same after looking at an old commissioned piece I have in a club setting. Laser Strobe. The mark would be a laser emmiter and strobe light shining their beams crossed over one another. If I could draw, I'd make something to post as a pic.

Best part is, I'd get to hang out with Vinyl Scratch. :D

Derpy. Her special talent is..bubbles.

Being a Derpy fan and spotter of hers in the series, I have the answer to this. Derpy Hooves is a little scatter brained and directionally incoherent. There is an old phrase that is not much used anymore, but Lauren Faust's team must have really done their homework to dig it up. It called being "Bubble Headed". So since her special talent is being confused, lost and over burdened with mutli-tasking and eating muffins, her cutie mark became bubbles.

Kishi pretty much nailed the answer regarding the fruit based cutie marks. Like the Apple family, someone with a fruit on them is an expert in that field. Such as a champion Cherry Tree horticuluralist or a Carrot Farmer. Someone with a Carrot cutie mark you could just imagine how popular they would be in Ponyville.

As for your own Shim, A Jack of all Trades but Master of None. That could be cutie markerized by this:

Being a soldier on my own, a man against the world, I am alone. I stand my ground against all i believe is wrong. I might still be young, and others might say that I lack the experience to say what I thing is truth, but I still stand stand strong. My cutie would have to be the emblem of my gamers mark.


Sorry for it being so small, but that is my mark. The lone wolf.

So go ahead, what's yours?

I've thought of something similar for myself...  Except, instead of Earth or any other single world behind the ink and quill, I think it would be a spiral galaxy.

Super sparkly theatre masks if I had any say about it, but if it's based on talents it could be something to do with science, exploding flasks or something biology related, or it could be writing related, or history, or business, or political, or fashion, or artsy or general coolness. =>.>;= But theatre is really my thing so the ULTRA SHINYSPARKLEY greek theatre masks would probably be the best, it goes with my fabulous personality too =^.^= ... although something gambling related would also suit me. =>.>=

Probably just the head of a robotic dog. I don't have any special talents and my robot dog obsession is the only trait I have that seems unique enough to qualify.

A model rocket, most likely.

If we're talking "me" then it would be two crossed pens under a gaming die, all on an open book.

If we're talking "Landrav" and whatever version of him is most "canon"... a rocket with its exhaust curling around the Earth.

However, I have no idea what my pony name would be. I'm such a recent convert, I haven't even seen all the episodes, let alone getting into extended material.

Start with the basics Landrav; which of the three types of ponies would you be? Earth, Unicorn or Pegusus?

Then finding a name is fairly easy. I'm a nighttime person, I love the dark and especially the night skies. My cutie mark fits my name perfectly, A cresent moon with three stars. My pony name: Starmoon Shroud.

Hmm, I probably would not be a unicorn, and the pegasi seem to be a really high-adrenaline bunch.  So, Earth pony it is.  Simple brown coat would do, but I'd have blue hair.  I mean, you've GOTTA have blue hair! ;)

I'd probably name myself Story Scribbler.



The pony was made using one of those online generator thingies, and I muddled through the spartan background.  Now all I'm missing is the cutie mark   :-[

Hmmm, with a name like Story Scribbler I'd think your cutie mark would be a quill in a ink well sitting next to a book.

Well, the book/pens/dice idea I had earlier kind of encompasses all the ways I do stories: read/write/game.  However, a simple mark would be good, too, if it meant easier recognition.  I can see how it would be hard to make out a gaming die in a mark that size.  The Mane 6 each have a pretty simple mark; RD's is maybe the most complex, but the high contrast of the colors makes it stand out.
