Muffin head by Key-Feathers Muffin head by Key-Feathers
(Refresh for edits I have added...I wanted to make her more fluffy <3)

I love some of the ways people react negatively to this character, especially when they feel she is “ableist ” or “insulting” purely by her looks (even before her voice was released).

I personally have a turned in eye, and while I can physically straighten it I become legally blind when I do so, and can be very clumsy as a result 8D. And so, I love to think Derpy is a clutz herself for these reasons!

I wear glasses that “correct” my eye, and I think that’s all poor old Derpy needs for her… issues ;)

Oh! She is very lovely. With glasses too. Beautiful work.

Like to see her smiling. She deserve loves. That's what I say. In my mind she's an icon.

Myself I wear glasses but for eyes with both different vision problems. Yep.

so, don't take this the wrong way because I am by no means an art critic or someone knowledgeable on the matter in most cases. I just wanted to throw this out, hopefully for constructive criticism. Derpy looks a bit mannish in this picture. I think this stems from her slightly puffed out chest and the length between her chest and back make it look some what thicker and broader. It might also be her facial structure and possibly her hair, it just seems a bit more dense, if that makes any sense.

in truth i don't think a lot of fans were put off by derpy, just it seems the category i'd call soccer moms (just a group name, not all of them really are soccer moms) Who voice out they don't want their little baby exposed to this kind of thing, they wouldn't understand! It's all overportectiveness, when in truth exposure to characters like Derpy is very healthy. I saw it in High school, a group of students who were mentally challenged, they were as smart as you or me, they just had difficulties expressing themselves in ways that you or I would find second nature.

point simply being, characters like derpy can be used to show that any kind of adversity can be overcome, and i've seen it myself.

I Always thought that Derpy and The Doctor/Dr. Whooves went back in time to before muffins were invented and Derpy was so discouraged she made it to show everypony how awesome muffins are! So...she's reading a book about herself xD
