Battlepip by JetWave Battlepip by JetWave
Littlepip in a fight like she always is.

Practiced some dynamics, lightning and also backgrounds. Been holding this one back for a couple days as I've felt like something is missing, but I can't figure it out. Except completely redoing the background of course, but this was all just practice anyway so I'll rather start on something new.

I actually went into G.E.C.K (the software thingie were you can mod Fallout 3/NV) and built myself a little vault corridor to use as help when drawing the background. Could have turned out way better, but I learned some stuff so next time will hopefully be better. ^^

This is actually the first time in over a year I believe that I've drawn something that actually could be picked out as an event in FoE. You're welcome to try and guess where it might be happening! I actually do have a specific point in the story in mind. :P

Next time should be a commission or two!

Featuring Littlepip from Fallout Equestria… , written by Kkat!

EDIT: Amazing shading edit by BrentOGara over here! link. Seriously check it out, it's my missing piece!
Edit edit: Looks like BrentOGara has deactivated his account, so it's no longer available there. :( You can find it on derpibooru though.

well, it seems that the gun that she has might interest a friend a lot his name is Russian though he may some times replace any s with z just to sound like a English\Russian but still awesome gun

I was not so lucky when it came to rockets...

the guns handle looks a bit off to me
DeeJayTheBlank Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's on purpose. If you've read the early part of the story, it's mentioned that earth ponies fire using their tongues, hence the reason for the sideways handle.

so they always hold their guns like gangstas

Great Shadowing Tactics.

Saw BrentOGara's version and decided that I had to see the original. Very nicely done! One of the best stories (fanfic or otherwise) I've ever read and it's awesome to see art like this based on it!

I have a question: am i able to use this pic for a project i'm doing? i promise to give credit.
JetWave Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would say yes, but I would still like to know what the project actually is (at least as a whole) first. Just send me a note about it. :)

Excellent work as always. It's nice seeing you do a full-on action scene.
IceStormy Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013
Can I ask a question?
JetWave Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I suppose.

Nice action piece!

point in story, i would either guess just after resetting the power in the stable that had the crusader mainframe or when she's retaking Stable 2
Sire-Sword Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
She looks like shes trying to do ballet. Just saying.
JetWave Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
... I feel the same. xD During development, I did ask some friends if they were seeing it as well, but all seemed pretty much clear. I did tilt her a bit on Fuzzy's recommendation though and I believe it helped quite a lot, even if not fully. ^^
batosan Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Neat work! The battle to stop the Steel Rangers placing the mind of their commander in the stables supercomputer?(it's been so long since I've read FOE the original. I'm just no good with the names and places anymore!)
BrentOGara Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This looks very good, I like that you used the GECK to create your own reference image to ensure the background was done right. I really like the feeling of motion and activity you have, although I wonder what the weapon behind her (that's causing the red lighting effect) is... I can't decide if it's a shotgun or a laser weapon... but lasers don't leave smoke trails... neither do shotguns, but perhaps it's the mother of all muzzle blasts?

As for the "something missing"... that would be texture and shading. You do have rudimentary forms of both already in the image, as the rough, scattered brush you used to block in the shadows does give it a bit of texture, and there are some rough shadows present... but neither has been brought up to the level of detail that the rest of the composition enjoys.

That's the problem with really nice line art and a buckin' sweet background... you've got to have equally awesome shading to keep up the overall quality of the image... and yours could stand to be at least 20% more awesome. If you don't mind me putting my cyborg paws on your work, I'd be happy to post an example paint-over in my (with a link just for you, of course).
JetWave Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't blame you for missing the fact it's a rocket. I really should have used a reference picture for it as well. xD

Thank you for your more in-depth comment! And no, I wouldn't mind at all seeing what you could do with it. Just tell me if you need anything, like the .sai file including the layers for example. :)
BrentOGara Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't have Sai, but thanks for offering the original file anyway, most folks treat their source files like gold. I do have FO3 and the GECK, so I can get most references myself. The full resolution file you linked to the download is fine for a paint-over. I'll see what I can do with it later on today... 3:30AM is a bit too early to start a new project :)
HaveBKYourWay Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2013
I do not think there is a laser weapon or a shotgun behind Littlepip. I think that is a rocket shooting past her.
BrentOGara Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah... that makes much better sense! Thank-you :D
