Fall of Glory by MoreVespenegas Fall of Glory by MoreVespenegas
Been wanting to do this scene for a while and finally got around to it. It's from FO:E Project Horizons by Somber featuring Blackjack and Glory. Tried out a more chiaroscuro like style, I need to experiment with different shadows more. I think something lighter is in store for the next piece, it might be a while though.
It has been pointed out that Blackjack had an eyepatch at this point so I went and added that in. I didn't like her far eye anyways since it was in shadow and a bit jarring compared to the near eye.

Because that's not Littlepip. That's Blackjack; the protagonist of Fallout: Equestria Project Horizons.

Sometimes when faced with the inevitable instead of fighting it you can choose to accept it. Your choice is the only thing you can control.
Blackjack would never choose that though.

If you have the time I really recommend it.
This is from a spinoff fic, Project Horizons which is somehow even longer with no end in sight.

Hell, I ain't no artist, and I don't lie that much, so believe me when I say that I wish just wishing for a picture of that scene, whether by my hand or not. And lo and behold, there was one in my message box I never check on my dA

That sounds almost too good to be true.
If there are any more scenes that need to come to life but have no art of their own you can suggest them to me and I just *might* draw it.
Maybe, eventually.
If I like it and time permits.
But it never hurts to ask.

Oh, that is gorgeous. My only real complaint is that it doesn't feel like BJ's hanging from that arm. There's not much sense of weight there, as if she's floating.

That and the pipbuck buttons are on the top instead of the bottom... :3

But, yeah -- I've been waiting for someone to draw this moment forever. Thank you.

Yeah the anatomy is a little wonky but you can't really have a pony hang from one hoof and reach with the other without making it anthro.

:iconsilentcarto:
SilentCarto Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
That's not it at all. BJ looks like she's hanging at an angle -- her CG isn't in line with her arm, so it seems like her rump is pulling her off to the left instead of straight down. Because of that, I don't get the sense of tension in her arm, like she's hanging by it.

:iconmorevespenegas:
MoreVespenegas Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Weird, this is how I see it. [link]
If anything the rump should be out more and the back leg reaching even further to the left but I tweaked it a bit for the composition.

The pose seems sound to me. The only nitpick I got is that the pipbuck should be higher up the leg, which would allow actually using the joint right above the hoof to realistically hang onto the metal beam sticking out of the wall.

Right now, it kinda looks like the bottom of her hoof is suction-cupped to the ceiling.

:iconmorevespenegas:
MoreVespenegas Featured By Owner May 22, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The beam is supposed to end right where it meets the pipbuck, behind the arm. Maybe it's not too clear though.
Reply
:iconnyerguds:
Nyerguds Featured By Owner May 22, 2013
I got that... but the hoof is in no way holding onto it. More like the pipbuck's skewered onto it.

Ah, well. It's still a really nice piece. Very powerful.

(let's just pretend Blackjack's pipbuck is equipped with a strong electromagnet =p)

I believe the pipbuck was supposed to have caught on the beam as she was falling. Maybe I read that wrong.

I think that there's an average of at least one heartrending scene a chapter, and that's just interpersonal relationships. This is to say nothing of the fact that it's freaking Equestria that's been nuked to hell and back.
