Very first sketch concepts for Discord. Very loose, very rough. You can see here that I was trying to make his head a little more horse-like and less dragon-like. It didn't seem quite right to me yet so, since I was sick at the time and had a deadline, I asked my husband Craig for design advice. You can see his suggestion for the head and face on the top two Discords. My hero!
Further refinement by the character design team gave you the Discord in The Return of Harmony.
