Just felt inspired after reading some more of the big Fallout: Equestria fanfic, to try draw a pony on fire
So many fine lines in that text that inspires to do art, sadly I never get around to properly illustrate them because of lack of time. But at least I could doodle this in class. Actually quite happy with how well it turned out. Never tried to draw someone on fire before
To avoid spoilers, I won’t get more into what this is about. You who already read this part will know. Quite a scene, huh? That story just keeps blowing my mind to pieces

Okay the one thing I really hate about Homage’s depiction in the FoE fandom is basically, she’s a Vinyl Scratch with a grey coat and occasionally blue eyes. So I basically crapped out my head canon for Homage where she has almond shaped eyes (for variety from lil Pip and Vinyl Scratch, and partly cuz of Tenpony High Society) and longer hair that swished in front of her face since it’s mentioned her fringe has a habit of covering her eyes. I tried to make her coat a warm grey since the fandom makes Lil Pip a cold grey and I like having some attempt at diversity.
Anyways here’s my 15 minute flat colour of what I think Homage looks like, drawn on mouse in GIMP.

Fallout Equestria: The Game - Recruitment Teaser (by EqSoftworks)

…total conversion mod. Well imagine no more. Equestria Softworks is developing just that. A total conversion mod for the Fallout 3 engine aiming to bring the Equestrian wasteland as a fully playable experience to your PC. New models! New maps! Guns and sledgehammers, grenades and rocket launchers. Finally, the most important thing of all, story. The aim is to give you the possibility to play the storyline, but at the same time be the pony you want to be. Deal with those nasty raiders, or slaughter the modest ponies of New…

So here is Lionheart from Fallout Equestria. He’s actually one of my most complicated sculpts I’ve done yet, though I think I did pretty well. He’s a Fluttershy head on an Earth pony body. I extended the torso, extended the legs, sculpted the bits and pieces and used the wings from a dinosaur toy.

His character I really liked as well since he was a remnant from the actual timeline of the show. Plus I kind of wanted to try making the Luna guard armour and try doing a ghoul pony before making a Ditzy Doo ghoul.

I was heavily inspired by Idess’ fanart so check them out here.

And here is Xenith, my zebra ex-slave, skilled fighter and herbalist. Despite her showing up so late in the story and having a lot of potential to fail horriby as a character and suffer for it, I feel she’s one of my favourite characters from the story. She’s hardened and emotionally distant but I think her strengths outweigh her flaws. 

Little story, but long before I read Fallout Equestria, the first piece of fanart I ever saw was one of Xenith by Cluttercluster here. When I saw it I knew that I really wanted a custom of that design because it was so different but incredibly well balanced and designed. Of course when I read Fallout Equestria and came across that fanart multiple times I knew I wanted to get Xenith in custom as soon as possible.

And yeah, as with my other Fallout customs I used this vector to help better fit on the pony bases, as the vectors fit the show style better, haha.

Any ways, I just need to make Steel Hooves and Homage to complete my mane 6. And possibly a Ghoul Ditzy Doo and Lionheart.

And here is the Stable Dweller herself, Little Pip (or Lil’ Pip or littlepip) from Fallout Equestria. She’s got her Pipbuck and Stable Uniform since these are the things I most imagine her in unless stated otherwise like Canterlot police barding or Raider gear.

She was a tad harder to create due to how vague her description was and how she looked physically. So I decided on a couple of things. I chose green eyes as a rather nice way of balancing the Power Trio’s colouring (Blue, Brown and Green) and I decided that they would be rounder due to Pip’s heritage. I also went with brown hair because I like to think of her colouring as something plain and kind of boring, considering how unremarkable she considers herself. And yeah, I painted her eyeliner in the style of Cloud Chaser and Blossomforth from the latest Fluttershy episode for some eye variety, haha.

And yeah, she has short hair otherwise her hair would have gotten snagged repeatedly in her adventures.

Anyways, she was a Pinkie Pie with a horn transplant and milliput modifications. 

On a side note, I gave Calamity his hat, which was a resin cast by Otaku Squirrel. So send him love here: http://otakusquirrel.deviantart.com
