:iconajhmmplz: :iconsays2plz: Yeah we’re we looking for a code in a dungeon. No apple trees growing down here.

:icontwilightwhatplz: :iconsays2plz: Did nopony read this: [link] ?

:icondashiehmmplz: :iconsays2plz: If it’s not a Daring Doo adventure I didn’t read it…

:icontwilightliciousplz: :iconsays2plz: just find a code for a prize! Everypony should read more.

Read below for details


Note me when you find it and I'll get back to the first to send me the correct answer!

Also this one is a simple code hunt. Just find the code and tell me what it is.

1. In order to win you must send me a note. Codes in the comment won't be counted (Of course I still love to get comments! :))

Note: You will need to download the picture to see the code. It is visible, I cheeked.

Note 2: there are 3 characters in the code

This code HAS been found.

It was found by: :iconharukohoshiko:

It was found in: Approximately one hour


This is the Alternate version of this: ([link]) a commission I did for :iconneonagasaki: for his story which can read here: [link]

I don't think this one will be very difficult; the Code is just thrown in real quick. The next prize piece will be a mystery which I'll do after a couple of commissions get finished.

This one was great for practicing outfits and textures. It did take me quite a while to do every outfit.

If you want any of the individual parts of this (ie. just background) tell me and I'll see what I can do.

You're welcome to use this for whatever you want as long as you give credit! (And I'd love a link to your work to see what you came up with!)

If you see any problems please tell me and I'll hopefully be able to improve!

"A Dungeon Deep" -A Pony's Dungeon Trekking Adventure-

the game uses 2 teams with 6 ponies each with a different job (character).

the 6 main job types are:
Musician-uses the power of music to weaken the enemy or to aid allies.
Druid-uses terraforming powers to attack and to defend.
Thief-uses high speed and stealth to strike down enemies or to steal items from them for later use.
Archer-uses long range attacks to defeat enemies without close range battle.
Wizard-uses a variety of magic spells to attack, defend, and aid.
Warrior-uses close range combat with high attack but low defense.

other characters include:
Medic-a soldier type that has high ability in healing allies but is weak in combat.
Dragon-slayer-a warrior that fares at fighting dragons.
Berserker-a warrior with high attack but can lose control and attack allies.
Elementist-a wizard that uses raw elemental magic.
Summoner-a wizard that calls forth creatures to do their bidding.

each pony cannot change their job when it is given to them at the start.

the characters can level up their stats from gained experience points from defeating monsters during each dungeon trek.

the game takes place inside a giant dungeon-labyrinth underneath Celestia's castle.

there are a total of 66 levels inside the dungeon, the goal is for the first team to reach the bottom level to obtain the "holly sword" artifact and defeat the dark dungeon lord "Zorc" in order to win.

there are treasures and items hidden in the dungeon like healing potions or better weapons and armor, but some of the treasures may be booby-trapped and can cause more harm than good.

in the dungeon there are many traps and monsters to face, there are also stone faces that will give out clues in riddles to help solve each level. There are also secret passages that can advance the teams further past certain obstacles, but beware that not all of the hidden passageways are safe from harm.

the traps include:
Spiked Pits, Needle Walls, Giant Axes, Arrow Walls, Spear Floors, Snake Pits, Electric Walls, Magma Pits, Crushing Spiked Roofs, Raging Water Vortexes, Collapsing Rooms, Etc...Etc...And I Could Go On...You Get The Idea Of Where I'm Going With This.

the monsters include:
Elemental Monsters, Living Spartan Armors, Giant Spiders, Lizard-men, Skeletons, Zombies, Killer Books, Dragons, Ghosts, Evil Trees, Dark Warriors, Mirror Monsters, Shadow Monsters, Huge Insects, Killer Giant Asian Hornets, Eyeball Monsters, Chimeras, Minotaur's, Gargoyles, Gremlins, Changelings, Shadow Ninjas, Golems, and the boss monster "The Dark Lord Zorc The Destroyer".

"To Size Victory, Listen To Me, One In All, All In One, That's The Key" -remember that teamwork is the way to conquer the evils of the dungeon and win the game-

if the team falls in battle, their souls will be bound to the "River Of Imprisonment" at the first level and the names of the fallen team-members will be engraved on the walls of level 1 in honor of those that failed to conquer the dungeon.

Those that win the game will be congratulated by Celestia and Luna as masters of the Dungeon Deep and will be honored with gold medals, a replica of the "Holly Sword" artifact for the team's best player, and their names engraved on a rainbow gem chalice for all future dungeon-trekkers to see and look up to.

there are 4 hidden bonus levels in the dungeon that are available to the best teams, the 4 rooms are:
room 1-advanced monsters with high experience point value.
room 2-vast treasures and high potential items.
room 3-a grand armory with over-powerful weapons and armor for the high level players.
room 4-a deadlier version of the "Zorc" boss awaits your challenge.

Will you and 5 friends be next to brave the dungeon?

Beginners Level for filly-age ponies and family groups are available now!

"See ya There!"

Glad you like it!
How did you make it? Was it a 3D-Cad or something or did you actually vector it?
lightningtumble's avatar
lightningtumbleHobbyist Digital Artist
It is in fact a vector, based on a photo (I think). It was pretty interesting to make!
Might sound unbelievable, but I just found out yesterday what those vector graphic programs are like (I saw some kind of tutorial pic...)
Damn! I need too much time for a simple pic even in MSPaint! Using one of those progs would stop my life!!
Guess I gotta buy me a new scanner and stay with my ball-pen and is too difficult for me!
lightningtumble's avatar
lightningtumbleHobbyist Digital Artist
I'd say the same about traditional art for me! I can't draw at all! But you know once you learn inkscape you can kick out some vectors in less then an hour! The basics at least are really not that hard!
You know, my real problem is when I draw a line, and then another, I always think 'Hmm, now the first line looks odd to the second...' and then I start to correct and erase all along...until I reallize I spent 3.1415 hours on two lines which still look ass...
On real paper with hard-to-erase crayons and unerasable ball-pens I just can skip those thoughts because its impossible anyway...
But hey, I just buyed a new scanner! Now I just have to learn how to draw ponies instead of stupid alien-ghoulds and freakmen...
lightningtumble's avatar
lightningtumbleHobbyist Digital Artist
It sure can be trouble when you spend pi hours on a few lines! I hope you enjoy the traditional drawing style, it's certainly something I've never been good at! If you ever want to try digital art and need help don't hesitate to ask any question you have.
