Commission for :iconssjcharon:

To continue on the line of illustrations with characters of MLP mixed with characters from Fallout, here you have Twilight Sparkle, Moondancer and Spike as members of the Brotherhood of Steel. It didn't take me long to figure out that Twilight should be either an Elder or a Head scribe, and Moondancer had to be only slightly below rank respect Twilight. Spike was going to be a Paladin, there was no doubt on that regard, but I wasn't sure if young Spikey-Wikey would've been fit to put on the armor and act as (what is essentially) a bodyguard. So I aged him up, gave him a plasma rifle (because of his green flame) and there you go. I like this badass version of Spike, I hope you guys do too.

I was both looking forward and dreading to draw the archives of the Brotherhood of Steel from Fallout: New Vegas. Despite how long it took me to draw them, I quite enjoyed it from beginning to end, and I think they turned out somewhat good. I'll let you guys judge the depth of field and quality of the background in the comments. By the by, the costumes of the Brotherhood of Steel are amazing. I'd kill to have one of them.

As per usual with this series, the original deviations are here Comission - Twilight Scribe by jamescorck and here Comission - Paladin Twilight Sparkle by jamescorck It's been a long time coming since drawings like this one, hasn't it?

I hope you guys like it! Please let me know what you think in the comments!

Call me what you want, I would read that book much sooner than Kkat's. I am interested in seeing more of this universe if you are ever inclined.

That's really flattering man, thank you!

We do have several ideas to work on in the future involving this take on the Fallout Equestria universe. I can't wait to start working on these.

Love the AU so far.

Thank you so much!

I honestly think this is the best of all the drawings.

The theme, the lighting, and I like the way I drew grown up Spike.
bruiser128's avatar
Can't argue with that.

Spike looks awesome.

Spike was a lot of fun to draw. I want to draw Spike like this from now on, he looks really badass.

Where did you learn to do the art that you do?
jamescorck's avatar
I went to art school in Madrid for two years, and I also have a degree in graphic design and illustration. Besides that I've learned everything else from reading tutorials online and coming out with my own techniques to develop my art style.

Still, I'm always learning new things, and so should everyone else. One never becomes a full-on professional, you're always learning something new.

My goodness, Spike sure has sized up.

I'm getting tired of drawing Baby Dragon Spike. We've seen him since Season 1 and he's not changed at all. We need more grown up badass Spike!

Canterlot = Brotherhood of Steel. Makes sense, actually.

It was a rather easy to make the connection. There's no other place the archives could be.

Ok, I really like this :D

Thank you, but I'm not entirely sure what you're making a reference to.
Nickmane's avatar
That's what moondancer is saying to twilight, silly scribes :P
jamescorck's avatar
Oh that's not a barn. It's the archives hub on the BoS bunker from Fallout New Vegas.
Nickmane's avatar
I assumed it was a stable (the fallout equestira version of a vault), silly me :P I tend to stay away from the brotherhood as much as possible because I don't like them based on their behaviours in previous games so I still haven't gone there in New Vegas yet.
jamescorck's avatar
The BoS is portrayed as even bigger sociopaths in New Vegas, which is fine because I never liked their goodie-two-shoes portrayal in Fallout 3. I can understand why you don't want to go see them, the only cool thing they have is the bunker's design and their costumes/armor.
Nickmane's avatar
Their costumes don't interest me much, I think that the riot-gear that the NCR rangers wear still looks the best.
