Equilibrik's Free Comission ~ 'Alicorn's Bane' by 11meister Equilibrik's Free Comission ~ 'Alicorn's Bane' by 11meister
Hey there! Here's the first of my "new-watchers-get-a-free-drawing" commission thingies. This one's for Equilibrik :iconequilibrik: who asked me to draw him a custom Gauss Rifle that could be pony operated.

Here's what I came up with, and I'm fairly pleased with it. I'm not a fan of unwieldily big guns like this one, but the original Fallout New Vegas Gauss rifle is needlessly big. Coilguns such as this one would actually be ideal for pony marksmen, seeing as they tend to have comparatively lower recoil, and it would be much easier to implement some sort of auto-loading mechanism without the reciprocating bolt and gas-system found in 'powder-arms.


Decided to try a new style of drawing this time, following this guide [link] which I am utterly pleased with. I think I'll do a few more pics in this style. It's fairly quick, and I like the results, but I'll need to remember to work in a higher resolution next time. This pic's a bit more blurry than I would have liked.

Anyway, onto the next one!

Have you read Fallout Equestria: Outlaw, by any chance? There's a prototype of a gun similar to this, and it just so happens to be a big piece of the story. I would highly recommend it. If you're interested, it can be found here > [link]

Good work! I like how you put the scale in by mounting it on a ponnequin. One major issue is with the weapon's name, "Alicorn's Bane" would never have made it past the design stage especially after Princess Celestia was nearly assassinated... To be honest the better name would have been Dragon's Bane simply because the Zebras had enlisted Dragons as a flying combat force...

This was a commission. The title of the weapon was specified by the client. I am not held liable for any breakage of canon, personal or otherwise.

Ah, should have read the image title before posting. Still, love the work and I looks forward to seeing more good things from you!

Ironically a gauss rifle isn't classified as Anti-Material as the Gauss Rifle came long before the Anti-Material Rifle. Also in Fallout Equestria they're referred to Anti-Machine Rifles. Finally your 2D image resembles the Fallout 3 Gauss Rifle however the 3D image resembles the M72 Gauss Rifle from Fallout 1, 2, Tactics and BOS. So which one is it meant to be?

Seeing as gauss rifles are at this stage theoretical, and seeing as this one is designed exlusivley to be used against armor and structures (the definition of anti-material) - I have every right to refer to my fictional weapon by such a title. Futhermore, the 3D image was drawn from the 2D image - which was taken directly from Fallout New Vegas. I'm so sorry if my artistic skills arn't weren't good enough to make an exact copy, but I assure you they are meant to be the same. Which one is it meant to be? It's meant to be what Equiliubrik, the commissioner ASKED FOR . An original, custom gauss rifle, named 'Alicorns Bane' And as far as I can see. That is precisely what this is.

That would be princess luna. Not nightmare moon. :iconlunachallengeplz: And it's not "original" in that sense - It's origional - as in - of my own creation.

wtf in season 2 episode 4 everyone referred to her as Nightmare Moon so I don't know what your going about.
I thought this was commissioned by someone else so technically it's their creation not your's.

The phrase "Attention to Detail" doesn't even come close to your works.

This is gorgeous. I love it.

...how much to ship one to Australia?
