Greatdragon Com MLP VINAL SCRATCH by ShoNuff44 Greatdragon Com MLP VINAL SCRATCH by ShoNuff44
Where was this one in the show? This is the towns local party DJ Vinal Scratch. This one took the Longest to finish cause like the Twilight Sparkle pic, I had to use two art programs to get the lighting just right. 

I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume that She and Pinkie Pie are best friends and she provides the music to the town? Hyper? am I close here?

Well, Pinkie can summon her at will (like at the wedding and when she needed backing beats for a rap song) and she was seen just randomly hanging around Sugar Cube Corner.

She's a background character who's rather popular with fans.  However, her few major appearances imply a close friendship with Pinkie and possibly with Rarity (Or at least a working relationship with the later)

She's...extremely minor.

To answer your question, DJ P0n-3 also known as Vinyl Scratch first shows up during the episode "Suited for Success" for less than 10 seconds and despite such little screentime and her lack of speaking lines, she almost immediately became ridiculously popular in the fandom due to her unique design (perhaps even rivaling "Derpy Hooves," a cross-eyed gray pegasus mare that showed up in the background of a crowed scene in the first episode).  Vinyl Scratch has since made other brief cameo's in two other episodes (season 2 finale "A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2" and season 3 finale "Magical Mystery Cure") as well as an appearance during the "My Little Pony: Equestria Girls" movie (in which Twilight Sparkle travels through a magic mirror to an alternate universe where everypony is human and in highschool to recover her stolen Element of Magic crown from an evil former student of Princess Celestia) and ends up getting an awesome music video (see here:… ).  In the fandom, she has a inspired a ridiculous amount of high-quality fan art, fan fictions, fan videos, fan musics, and even a meme or two.  In said fan-works, she is often paired with fellow background musician Octavia Melody, a grey-furred and raven-haired earth pony cellist (or double-bass player; there's a bit of a debate regarding what her instrument is) as a comedic foil and common romantic interest (one of those "opposites attracts" deals, what with Vinyl being a loud, hard-partying, ill-mannered disc-jockey and Octavia being a well-groomed, prim and proper, high-society classical musician).

Some notable videos and even the audio-play version of one of her earliest and most notable fan-fics…………

BTW, I absolutely LOVE your depiction of her, she looks mega-hot!!

You made her look damn nice :D

This one's actually a bit strange because she's gained a large fan following despite only appearing in the background in most of her appearances and having no lines at all (IIRC). She's the show's resident DJ but she doesn't do much else.
FreerunCloud Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014
Epic pic! And I would have to agree as well. DJ seems to have a straight RAVE nature. Likewise complementing Pinkie's PARTY nature. And just to say, I can see Scratch bugging Rarity in the funniest of ways like she does to Octavia. XD
Enshohma Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Although DJ Vinyl Stratch is a minor background character, she does appear often enough to hint that she is a compatriot of Pinkie Pie, as the former is almost always DJ-ing her events. And thsi is probably the best of your humanized ponies.
FPSperson10 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2014
Now normally I'm no MLP fan but she looks hot the way u did her!

She look like she can drop some dirty beats!

The outfit, the hair, and the light of her shades are fantastic! Another amazing piece.

DJ-P0N3/Vinyl Scratch made a small appearance in the show, but gained several fans much like the controversial and beloved Derpy Hooves/Ditsy Doo.  Though some might not care, she is usually paired with her polar opposite of refinement Octavia.  Vinyl's appearance was in the fashion show episode, episode name escapes me at the moment, and Octavia appeared in the Grand Galloping Gala episode. 

I like the attention to detail of the image.  Her expression makes it as a DJ, along with the lipstick color matching her hair. 
Pikachu4Prezident Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2014
I do believe the episodes you're talking about would be "Suited for Success" and "The Best Night Ever" respectively.
BlueWolf-2020 Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014
I think she only has one little three second scene in the first season?  She did pop up (with Pinkie Pie) for another brief scene in the season two final episode

TCPolecat7 Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Vynil was in the show a few times in the background (as just a background character). But she was performing in "Art of the Dress" (season 1) towards the end for, oddly, Rarity's fashion show. She was also at very end of "A Canterlot Wedding, Part 2" as the DJ for the newlyweds before Twilight hijacks it.

- Polecat

who doesn't love this girl?! XD
WolfRaid Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014   Traditional Artist
She's a background character. She appeared in episode 16 of season 1 and had few more cameos in later seasons.
It's... kind of implied she knows Pinkie in the season 2 finale. But other than that, not much is known about her actually.

But as for her personality, we don't know canonically at the moment.
But she's most likely to be a music junky that's into dubstep and techno.
antcow Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014
Now I didn't expect this, sexy and nice colors :3
grandpagohan1 Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014
Not even close buddy. Vinyl  Scratch is a background pony (meaning she's only ever in the background with maybe one or two close-ups on occasion). Surprised you got Vinyl over Derpy (the general all-time favorite "Where's Waldo" background pony). But Vinyl is pretty bad-ass.

SergeantGrif Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014
actually, she's not much more than a background character. she had all of ONE appearance in the first season, using magic to put a record on her turntable while nodding her head to the music, and fans just went nuts with it. half the popular "characters" are nothing more than fans seeing a really cool background design and coming up with stuff on their own, which the creators sometimes make official later.

also, Vinyl Scratch, like a vinyl record.
Battosai16 Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014  Student General Artist
Pretty much.
PuffyCatgirl Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Ah, yes of course. The element of DJ.
You're getting there in knowing the characters. Vinyl Sratch, AKA DJ-PON3 is a one of the background 6 of the show. Supposedly she's also Octavia's roomie in the fandom. One thing that's agreed upon is that she loves dubstep.
Regreme Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014
Vinyl's personality is unknown, since she's a background pony whom has never been shown a voice, but her actions have spoken louder than words on the time she's been shown interacting with the group, brief though the scenes may be.
Andyroid Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014
DJ Pon-3 (AKA Vinyl Scratch) started out as a nameless one-shot bit character in the season 1 episode "Suited For Success", but her distinctive character design, and the idea of a disc jockey pony, stuck with a lot of fans and her fame kinda snowballed from there (much like the infamous "Derpy Hooves"). Pon-3 got a few more cameos in the show, and even some official merch.

Anyway, I love your take on Vinyl here! I know I'd like to party with her all night long. :D
JohnFlaherty Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Actually, Vinyl Scratch is a background character. She appeared for the first time in the ep Suited For Success. It was only for three seconds, but her design was quickly noticed by fans, and she became of the most popular background ponies in the fandom.
