Attack on Equestria - Mikasa (WiP) by ParallaxMLP Attack on Equestria - Mikasa (WiP) by ParallaxMLP
If you haven't watched/read "Shingeki no Kyojin" (Attack on Titan) yet... do yourself that favour. It's brilliant. (obligatory gore and general misery warning... as such things go, it's fairly dark).

Here's Mikasa looking pissed in her full 3DMG setup. This work in progress is part of a larger image which at this stage I'm not sure I want to finish (it was a bit ambitious and would take too much time away from My Little Websurfers). In this frame she is supposed to be standing on a slanted rooftop, overlooking the city and walls behind her. Anyway, here she is, at least.

This isn't quite my usual art style compared to the other things posted here... but I love the way it looks and it was a lot of fun to do. It would look better in the complete image, but again... might have to circle back to that later.

The 3DMG equipment doesn't make a lot of sense on a pony. For one you really need fingers and hands to hold the swords and fire the trigger mechanisms... I've tried to design around this, so the blades clip into her footwear, and she can control her 3DMG with the firing mechanisms built into the back of her front footwear (you can see this on her right foot... it's a hinging mechanism she can activate by bending her foreleg). Fighting in this arrangement would be a bit tricky because the blades would need to be detached each time she needs to run, so transitioning between 3D and ground-based warfare would take practice. Perhaps some sort of hinge mechanism would allow the blades to be remain mounted but sort of swing up and out of the way when running (although, this would impede the manouverability of the front legs due to the weight of the blades). In short we better hope Equestria isn't overrun by Titans because it is going to suck trying to fight them, haha. :D

HASBO, DHX... IF YOU ARE LISTENING, I DEMAND AN MLP VARIANT OF THIS FRANCHISE. :D

I've gotten three people hooked on AoT so far. IT IS NOT ENOUGH.

Can't believe the season is coming to an end :( oh well, they'd catch up to the manga at this rate anyway, if they didn't stop.

Aren't they going to make a second season? I heard rumors of a second season.

<3 this sooooo much. I haven't started watching the anime yet (due to the subject matter of the Titans), but it feels like the real essence of Attack on Titan is the drama of the characters to put out a strong story in the face of constant high stakes. 

You always put out good work and I'm getting back into maintaining my dA account, or else I'm go get stuck with 1300 messages again xD

How did you fill this in with color? This is amazing! Well done! Could you teach me how to fill in color like that? :D (Big Grin)

:iconparallaxmlp:
ParallaxMLP Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013
Thank you :) How do you mean fill in with colour? Are you referring to the colour choices/layering or simply the method for colouring in the shapes? This is vector art - it's made by drawing and combining hundreds of shape objects, rather than "painting" or "sketching" onto a surface like more traditional art techniques. As a result shapes pretty much colour themselves in (you just need to define what colour you want!) :)

I meant how did you layer the colors like that!? It looks so cool thanks for sharing! (:
Reply
:iconparallaxmlp:
ParallaxMLP Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2013
Thanks! I'm not sure I understand the question though... haha. The layers are arranged in groups based on what portion of the character they pertain to (maybe a leg, an eye, ear, etc). Colours are selected for the base artwork, and additional layers are added on top for detail (other colours, i.e. the shadowing and creases in the clothes).

Ackerman is also just one n away from Ackermann. Chances are the americanized Version, Ackerman of that surname was used by accident. Therefore she would be Ackergaul.

Hell, the first 8 episodes are composed of:
"oh that's not good... that's sad... that's downright depressing... OH GOD, EVERYTHING IS HOPELESS, THEY'RE ALL GOING TO DIE"
Then the next episode rolls around and your mind explodes.

it almost seems like in the pony world that the front-line soldiers would have to be Pegasus since it would solve the 3d maneuverability problem and being able to attach 2 blades to the front hooves and the earth ponies assigned to the garrison since you don't really need to move around that much to shoot a cannon and with the unicorns to the military police since the magic would be helpful to protect the higher ups and it would be easier to detain prisoners.
