well, when i originally drew my first pony, it was an OC, and she was a military pegasus, and from there i doodled some ponies with guns and whatnot, and that's where "my little veteran" comes from. Here, i wanted to originally just draw Twilight, but that kinda snowballed into this, probably my most complete piece. So here, Vietnam Ponies. Enjoy!
A couple notes about this piece. (For those who saved previous. Please save this one for this is the true final version.)
I was inspired by the Marvel vs Capcom 2/Super Smash Brothers covers. What if MLP:FiM was some kind of fighting game with lots of mini games thrown in it. Sort of the like Mortal Kombats with the MK chess, test your sight, etc.
Don't take these seriously. It's all in good fun.
2D Sprite HEAVEN.
~ 3 vs.3 ~ If you select Princess Celestia or Nightmare Moon, that's the chars you can play. So 1 life bar vs. 3. ~ Secrets to obtain Princess Luna and Derpy Hooves. ~ You can't play the Hydra or Dragon. They're boss characters. ~ All the ponies' pets are used as moves. ~ Super Ultras would be there like Twilight going berserk or Fluttershy's stare. ~ Backgrounds would include such locations as Ponyville, Canterlot, DJ-Pon3's Rave, etc.
DLC (examples) ~ Emo Pinkie Pie ($7 har har) ~ Rainbow Dash Wonderbolt ALT costume ($4)
Oh you get the gist of it.
Of course, they don't fight and just have a Grand Galloping Gala.
Notes about the art:
All hand drawn/colored via Cintiq 12wx. Actual size is 5400x3038. The Tif file was just under 96 mb. Both Princess Celestia and Nightmare Moon are beautiful characters to draw.
There are still some spots on the good side. If you think there is a character that really really deserves a spot here, comment. If I get enough mentions for a char, they probably be added. This may not be the final version. Hence the V1 and this is the only place where you will see the changes. I will upload new versions as new piece. All done!
One last thing. If there's a new cool character in Ep 26, I probably add that.
Update: Added the Owl. I think he's evil!!!!!! (J/K)
Update: Little Strong Heart, Big Macintosh, Ursa Minor Added! Didn't realize I uploaded the humongous version! It's re-sized.
Update: Braeburn ADDED
Added the 3rd Pegasus Bully(very tiny spot), Shadow Bolt Leader, and a Diamond Dog soldier
FINAL! Will not add anymore. When Season 2 comes by, I may do another. Until then!
Update: Minor updates to some colors like Ursa Minor's Eyes and the Diamond Dog Leader's collar tag. Thank you for your quick eyes.
I want to express to every one of you my deepest gratitude. Thank you for the suggestions!
I have been doing this work since the end of Season 3 but I never have opportunity to post it until now. In cerebration of Season 4, I hope you guys enjoy! I lined this one with pencil and painted with Photoshop and SAI.
Some off topic: One of my friends is working on a new game for the OUYA. It is also a tower defense game, but not pony. I'm putting a link to his trailer in case you want to check it out: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykRobn…
Hey guys! So here's the painting I did for the exclusive cover to the re-print of my book Last Man Standing: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter, which will be released by Dark Horse Comics at this year's Comic Con in San Diego!
Help support me and Gabriel's journey, so I can show you what a true badass can do and we can stop with these lame costumed heroes.
Hope you enjoy!
