A poster for the latest Fallout: Equestria Radio Play promotion, A Shot in the Dark, a look into the origins of LittlePip's trusty revolver, Little Macintosh.

This poster employs more of the shading technique I tried in DIleak's commission. Took me accumulated 6 hours to do. The Cutie Marks vectors I got from several folks.

Braeburn: :iconthe-smiling-pony:
Big Macintosh: :iconooklah:
Applejack: :iconblackgryph0n:

This is also probably some of the best line art I've done!
...It's took bad that it's hidden by the black background, GYAH!!

It's not out yet. SOMEONE (I won't mention any names) approved the art release prior to the actual promo release without conferring with their PR admin, first. It'll be out soon(TM), though!

Yes, but I'm quite excited about this particular promo. Ace did a wonderful job on the artwork--as you can see--and everyone involved helped make it into a great piece. It's in the final stages of production now.

I was jokingly thinking of a play on Applejack's name, "A Jack in the Dark" and instantly realized that A. that wasn't very funny, at all; and B. it just sounds wrong.

Waaaaah, your shading is better than mine! D':
But seriously, good poster. The shading is amazing and I love their facial expressions. :)

Heh, thank you very much!
This shading method is still very new for me. Hoping to employ it more often and improve upon it!

Set facial expressions to: A mix of anger, worry, and attempted indifference.

Big Mac's cutie mark is a butt that needs wiping.
