Steel Ranger emblem

By Quick-Study
I made this for the Kashin's Nuclear Winter Wonderland project.

I wanted to have have the emblem of the Steel Rangers on Hotwire. I then realized that that it seems that nopony has really drawn the emblem of the Steel Rangers that was described in Steelhooves's hut.

"Above the desk was a banner: a half-apple with an inlay of three magical sparks
ringed by gears, held by crescent-shaped wings and overlaid by a sword of war with a mouth-brace hilt.
It was the same emblem that adorned the flank of SteelHooves battle armor, right where his cutie mark
would be hidden beneath."

So I decided to do it myself. I used Big McIntosh's Cutie Mark for the apple and a slight modification of Twilight's for the magic sparks in the gears. The description did include colors so I just left the colors as they were, but if anypony thinks any colors work better let me know in the comments.

Edit: 11/21/11 Posted a new version that is larger, the wings are closer to what is expected of Pegasi wings, and the sword hilt to look like it would be held in the mouth.

awesome work but what about the "outcast"?

I've thought about it, but just never got around to it. Guess I'll do some reading up and figure out what are the exact changes to the outcast version. I'll try and post it by the weekend.

i think there should be some kind of hilt, they risk cutting their mouth now. like the wing additions, they work very well.

The part your talking about is the guard which protects the hand from the opponent's sword if it slides down the blade, but if a guard was placed on a mouth held sword it would create a blind spot.

As far as worrying about cutting the mouth, the blade could always be designed like a katana's where a small section of the blade that is closest to the hilt isn't sharpened.

ah, makes sense.

very nice, keeps the brotherhood of steel look from the original but adds that special Fo:E touch.

I'm actually working on a new wing and sword design. The wings I'm going to make them look more like Pegasus wings, and I'm going to make the sword hilt look more like a mouth-brace hilt as in the description.

Only thing I still need to figure out is if I should change the colors or leave them as they are.

colors look fine, i'd say stay the same. if you need inspiration for the sword's design look at Koromaru's sword from Persona 3.

There done, a dulled the wings to look more like Pegasi wings and the hilt to look more like what would be held in a mouth(smaller pommel so it's easier to get around the lips and removed the hilt so the wielder doesn't poke their eye when they try and use it.

Not a bad design actually

Thanks, though I know if I actually draw it I could do better. There's a few things of the design that I feel that could be modified to make it fit better in the ponified universe.

In fact I'll probably just do that when I have any free time today at work.
