Mass Pony Effect 3 by Bonaxor Mass Pony Effect 3 by Bonaxor
A fan art for best game of this year. Mass effect 3, the end of great trilogy. Of course here ponies are heroes ( ponies would make this game 20% cooler) and they have to fight against the reapers.
Also this pic is somehow fan-fic of my The Team Awesome. In far future, where Dream is back, Luna took over throne of Equestria to give Celestia some rest, and ponies are able to build starships, the ancient machines are back to bring destruction to all living things.

A little story for this pic.

Three princesses went to the balcony to witness the destruction of their precious Equestria. Monsters from deep space attacked whole world leaving only ashes of ruined cities.
Celestia - Such power. How we are supposed to fight against them?
Dream - I have no idea. We could try to use Elements of Harmony but there are too many of them. One mistake and we are dead.
Luna - Sisters! We have to get out of here before they launch the attack on Canterlot!
In this moment deep, terrifying roar echoed through the air. ( If you want to hear that go here [link])
C - They are already here. - said Celestia looking at massive Reaper that was preparing to land inside Canterlot. Machine moved his legs starting to power-up laser cannons.
L - GIRLS! MOVE THAT ASSES OF YOURS! WE MUST GET TO... - Before Luna could finish Reaper fired his lasers, cutting few Canterlot towers. Princesses took to the skies and flew away, avoiding next reaper attack.
L - Quickly! We must get to our ship and get off this planet!.
D - And were we will go?
C - We will go and find some allies. And I know where to start.
L - Fine. Team Awesome GO!

First I wanted to say that I really liked the way you made the scale of the entire image it makes it look like box art. Especially with the text at the top. My guess is that you went for that on purpose and if that's the case you did it right.

Something I don't like however is the fact that all 3 reapers are clearly copies of one and each other. Yes the one on the left has it arms a bit more up and the one in the front has more detail but still not too impressed. (I am sure you had your reasons but that is how it looks to me.) However this must be said: they might be pretty much all the same but they look really good. Lines are tight and just right. Also the proportions are how you would expect them to be. Too bad you cut them off at the top. Why is that? Also the two balls they all have seem to glow ever so slightly. A great detail that I can really appreciate.

For the ponies: Found some bleeding lines/colours. You can see this the most when you take a close look to their manes and tails. Which I find especially noticeable because in the rest of the image it's not a common sight at all. But the overall design off Luna and Dream is great. expressive poses, high detail, and they all have a shade(which is not as common as you might think so good job on that) Celestia looks just a bit off, for instance I got a question mark with her wings I don't know what it is just looks off.(sorry that was not helpfull at all) But I do really like the part of her mane that goes from her horn to infront of her neck and further. Great use of such a small part and it's something we don't see all that much.

The armour they are wearing looks really well done. A lot of detail and I especially like what Dream is wearing. It looks good, natural and very fitting to both her and mass effect. (also her mane looks amazing.)

For the background: The hills do their job as background filling but nothing more. They just don't look that good. But the small dots of invading reapers draw your attention away from the hills and are on there own a nice touch. Also the amount of them is great. Seems like you found a good balance on how much you should fill the sky without it looking overcrowded.

Vision: I can clearly see you went for something big and it takes some guts to actually make it. And overall the finished project might not be what it could have been yet the important thing is that it's still great and get's the message across. (:sh*t is going down, full panic mode enabled)

Originality: Not the first mass effect, pony crossover but still pretty original. I never saw Dream(big surprise) in any other image and the reapers actually landing is also something uncommon. The fact that this picture has a small story behind it also doesn't hurt.

Technique: Some parts felt sloppy or rushed while others really stood out. The overall good design and some nice attention to detail are good enough to carry the image so to say, but I also saw more small mistakes then expected. (altough you can't really see those if you don't look at it for so long and zoomed in, which is what I did.) Also the background needed more attention.

Impact: This image makes me want to play mass effect and gets me somewhat engaged in the small narrative you have given. Which is more then some of the actual art from the mass effect team did. Do I need to say more?

Now as a final note I wanted to say the following: Your image is good, yeah there are some flaws but you only see them when you go looking for them. You show some great potential in this piece of art and I am sure that with a bit more time this would have blown me away completely. Thank you for creating it.

selvokaz Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013
Celestia would be indoctrinated and secretly undermining Equestria defenses, Luna would eventually see through this trickery and have to kill Celestia.

Yep,all your base are belong to REAPERS.
Indeed, reapers.
Lots of 'em.
You're doomed.

Nice image!


Incomming transmittion from Kal'eon terminus [404: area not found]

Zarj'Kadian High-com: Reapers, you are outdated, let US defeat them!
Reapers: SERVE. US.
Zarj'kadian High-com: Deploying Zarj'kadian Reapers.

.... This type of reaper also carries mini-reapers, two types confirmed: SPACE, Planetside.
Space: desgined like a ship, it's legs are positioned across it's body, rather than at one end, they deploy planetside reapers, and everything Zarj'kadic.
Planetside: Capable of space/planet travel, these are similar to DEFAULT reapers, just with white lights, their laser is also white, rather than red.
Kal'eon legion tech 15 provided reaper production abilities, and function, control:
DEFAULT: All reapers can function as both, can modify selves to counter anything...almost.
Similar to Geth, but MUCH more advanced than reapers, standing at tech [???], they all strive for one. single. goal:
Khiliam is their leader, and thus their "Overlord".
Khillion is Khiliams honor guard trainer, second leader.
LEGION III is a reconstruction of various combat AI designed to be Khiliam's mortal vessel, another prototype...
Prototypes: Khillion is the only known PROTOTYPE unit functional superconstruct/megaunit/honor unit apart from the shell known as LEGION MK III, which is Khiliam's shell.

Khi are the only mechanical species that started as actual energy beings that existed in THE SLIP faction.
Kal'eon Systems:
Your reply.
Please be scared.
System: Now despensing LOG to LOG you out of our system.
*a log designed to only knock you out has been dropped on you, you wake up infront of a Geth [Khi version has orange eyes, Zarj version has a black cloud around it, with steam forever comming off it's body...*

Knighteclipse Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2012
This is all wrong.....the PONIES should be the Reapers.

They are the ones invading all the fandoms. With each respecting fandoms unable to stop against their growing power.

They are turning people into bronies (Pony equivalent to a husk) or into pony forms through the process of 'ponification' (Like indoctrination) :fear:

That actually makes a lot of sense. :omfg:

Please end this better than Bioware did... At least space magic here would make sense
Bonaxor Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Bioware ended this game in perfect way. You just need to think that whole thing, after you are being hit by laser, is Indoctrination. Harbinger is trying to make you one of his kind, and Only if you choose the red option you can defeat the Indoctrination process.
Vader999 Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2012
I chose the green option. That way, the Reapers and the organics stop fighting......and get to rebuilding the Mass Relay network before people start starving to death.
Bonaxor Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I did the same at first moment. I was so sure that this is the ending that I haven't seen better option. But now, when I saw that Shepard lives if you choose the Red one, I had "WFT moment", and went back to correct my mistake. Only red ending make sense to me now.
Vader999 Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2012
That ending is complete horseshit. No Geth, No reapers to rebuild the destroyed relays, everyone on Earth will starve to death and die.
Bonaxor Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Yea I know. I chose the middle one cuz I wanted the best solution for everyone. But if Indoctrination theory is true..... then I want to see Reapers Dead for what they did to me.
Vader999 Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2012
I'm sure the Indoctrination theory is also a pile of bull. The official game makers probably reject it too.
Bonaxor Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
:( If they make Indoctrination theory true then this game gonna have best ending in game history in my opinion. If not....then Mass Effect 3 is total disaster. Maybe it had nice gameplay and story but in my eyes ending of Trilogy need to be an ending that will actually END the thing not TOTALLY DESTROY IT.
Without Mass relays this world no longer have right to be called Mass effect.

I'm INCREDIBLY sorry to break it to you but the recent iPad app (After Hours I think), they negate many of the claims of the theories. When I read it, I was crushed. Look around on the BSN forums and you'll see the topic. I'm hoping The Truth actually clears things up. I love this theory and I refuse to take it as anything else but the devs thought we'd all take well to these atrocities. I hope they keep going and play out with the Indoctrination theory but it's looking bleak.
