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?

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!!

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.

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

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.

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.
