Wind Whistler by Voodoo-Tiki Wind Whistler by Voodoo-Tiki
This was originally an OC, but the commissioner didn't like the painting in progress, so I finished it up for myself and changed her into Wind Whistler, one of my favorite G1 ponies.

In the show, Whistler was the Spock: very smart and logical. She got made fun of by the other ponies for being kind of socially maladroit, using big words and "having no feelings" (which isn't true!). Sort of the spiritual ancestress of Twilight Sparkle, but with more emotional control. I totally identified with her.

A good example of Wind Whistler in action here: [link]

Twilight Sparkle, *looks up from Wind Whistler's comment on the painting made in her honor* "Are SURE she's not my ancestor instead of Twilight The first?"

Princess Celestia, "It was over five thousand years ago, anypony whose line has survived to this day is related to pretty much everypony, in particular after three major population drops from Discord, The Windigos, and the Day of Destruction that ended the Age of Wonders that Starlight and her friends enjoyed."

Just like Humanity! (Everyone alive today are the decendants of a big Near Extinction event 70000 years ago, that reduced the entirety of the human race to no more than 5000 people.)

Besides being among the most intelligent of the ponies in G1, Wind Whistler was also one of the bravest, always willing to fly into danger for her friends :D Very beautiful painting of my favorite Pony from any generation!

I don't remember much but I know Wind Whistler was always my fav Pony (even tho I had her colors and gender confused in my brain for the longest time :stare:)

And This, is deffinitely the best FanArt of her. Ever.
Even with the overlylarge eyes, but that's mostly my recent pet peeve talking

Sweet Santa Claus, those wings and those colors and all of this picture is amaziiiiiing~ 8D

Happy Holidays~

I'm not sure "amazing" quite does this justice, but I will call it so as I lack a more adequate descriptor.

It also had Fizzy being a ditz, Gusty being a sarcastic jerkass and Shady being Debbie Downer : and then everyone switches personalities!

Yeah, I always loved Gusty's color combo! It's kind of funny to re-watch the old cartoons and to see Bart Simpson's voice coming out of her XD

Oh noooo! Now that you've pointed that out I'll never be able to unhear it.

I kind of liked the fact she was sort of a malcontent. Too many kids shows only had the villains having personality issues. I rather enjoyed the fact Gusty was often grumpy and argumentative. She was memorable! And yes, she had a great colour combination and one I wish they'd bring back in the new generation, if only as a background pony.

Voodoo-Tiki Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
Hahah, oh no! Sorry bout that.

There's some really neat artwork of Gusty in G4 style; I'd sign to petition to see her again, too! In fact I think that would be a really cool nod to fans of the older series to maybe have a crowd scene entirely populated by ponies from previous gens.

northernlightsmlp Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well all this talk made me have to try her out in a g4 style myself

I think there's so many fan shoutouts in the show it's a bit much to hope for some callouts to the original series, but given the animators are generally the age to have been playing with the first toys, it might happen.
