Some main oc's of my story: WHAT HAPPENS TO AMUSEMENT PARK RIDES ONCE THEY ARE PUT INTO STORAGE OR DESTROYED? They are magically transported to a place only known as “Amusement Park Between”, a park that co-exist within any other and is only accessible by those who are of its blood. There are no limits and no humans. The only residents are the rides. However, they are much different from our own. Amusement Park Between’s rides are ALIVE, having both the characteristics of man and beast. Amusement Park Between was once merry and joyous, but for the past several years it has spiraled into turmoil. An evil tyrant known as Ironwheel has taken control, casting a dark shadow over Amusement Park Between, and whose evil intentions endanger both their world and our own. The rides only hope is the key to their prophecy; the red will defeat the black. That particular key is the only ride that was created differently. The red roller coaster, Railrunner. AND THIS IS HIS STORY.
Yes, these rides are BIO MECHANICAL, meaning they are metal on the outside, flesh on the inside. (its available now through amazon. see my page for other locations)
Merrylegs is a cheerful little yellow carousel horse and a true friend to everyone she knows. She came to Between in 1946 after her owners considered her no longer suitable due to her physical condition. Merrylegs's life began a bit rough. Carousel horses generally like to keep others in their herds "uniform" meaning that a unicorn carousel horse isn't welcome. So Merrylegs began her new life as a loner until she unexpectedly ran into the old roller coaster, Thunderbark who was a outcast himself. Merrylegs then began to live with him and soon they gained Static the dodgem as an ally. After many years as nomads, they settle in Zegria. Soon, they gain Angeltrack to their troupe and things only get unexpected from there...
Top: After Angeltrack unexpectedly becomes pregnant, Merrylegs is full of support for both the mom to be and the unborn red. When Railrunner is born, he loves to scamper around Merrylegs, purring and rubbing against her. A funny fact, Merrylegs bet that Railrunner was going to be a girl whiileStatic hoped for a boy. Merrylegs lost the bet and a few g's (Between's currency)!

Bottom right: A happy Merrylegs.
Top Left: One of Merrylegs's many expressions.
Top Right: An aggravated Merrylegs.
Bottom: Fast forwarding from the first sketch, Merrylegs snuggles with the now fully grown red roller coaster, Railrunner. Since the young coaster grew up with Merrylegs the two have always been close.
While doing these, I had to keep in mind that I didn't want to make Merrylegs too realistic compared to the other characters. It was fun developing a style for her. Plus carousel horse anatomy doesn't fully match an actual horse it was a bit different a well.
