New Perk: 'Bookworm' by 11meister New Perk: 'Bookworm' by 11meister
In the wake of my anger, I was exhausted. In the aftermath of the library battle, my whole body ached from exertion. My nerves felt frayed from the content adrenaline. Eating a bloatsprite skewer, I looked over the small underground chamber once more before curling up on the upper bunk of the pair of bunk beds built into the wall. I tried not to think of the colt skeleton on the bed below me. The skeleton of his father was by the door. A sip from my canteen took the edge off my thirst. It was almost empty; I had to conserve.


Righteo! Here's a dual-purpose work (hope neither party minds). This is my entry for Week 63 of the MLP-ATG Alumni's weekly themes - "Draw a pony recovering." Also - this is a free commission for neva22 :iconneva22:
who asked for "something related to Fallout:Equestria. I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone, and draw a pony from Fallout:Equestria, recovering :D

This picture was is meant to be an illustration of LittlePip from Fallout:Equestria, as she holes up in a cistern at the end of chapter 3. Those of you who have not read this awesomeness. Please kindly go here and receive an education:[link]

I was attempting to copy :iconlachasseauxhiboux:'s
awesome clean style, but I kinda went over-board with the shading as usual. Oh well, there's always next time.

The rest of you, how'd I go? I drew and shaded this in pencil, but then scanned it in, and did the background and the lighting on my Wacom. What do you think? Is this hybrid method viable?


My Little Pony and associated characters are Hasbro and :iconfyre-flye: Fallout 3 and likenesses Bethesda Softworks

Message from Kkat:

This is incredible! :wow: I've never seen this scene drawn before, and you did it with such poignancy and skill. I'm deeply honored!

If that really was Kkat, ask her if she'd be at all interested in someone trying to illustrate her illustrious fic. I've been contemplating giving it a shot.

So much atmosphere! I find it difficult to be constructive with your work, because frankly, its astonishing. Especially love the light and shadow effects.

This is amazing. Really, just awesome. I love the color from the glow of her pipbuck, it really adds a lot to the piece.

Thanks Sliced! I do like the way semi-coloured images look. Just having a small highlight of colour can sometimes look far better than a totally coloured pic.

This looks great. You did the background lighting with your wacom? How much does that encompass, I wonder. I can't tell where your pencil ends. You don't think that you'r style is clean? It looks pretty clean to me. You went overboard in trying to copy their style? I must say that I like your style better anyway.

The pencil bits are, LittlePip, the bunk, the two skeletons, and the light globe. The walls, floor/ceiling etc are all digital. And all the shading is digital.

This is intensly awesome. I absolutely love how much raw feeling is crammed into the scene that lets the reader figure out context for themselves even without the paragraph accompanying it.

Yah... it's viable... I personally think it does FO:E a great justice. Great writing and great art....

Anyway, once you finish up with FO:E, you should read FO:E Project Horizons... [link] It's... Long. And Greattastic.

Ooh, I wasn't exactly sure which one I should read after FO:E - so thanks for that Arbiter, I'll be sure to check it out!

And if it does it great justice - mebbe I should use it for my possible webcomic? :icontruestoryplz:

You're making a webcomic? If so, you should tell me where it is/where it will be.

Also, just be forewarned... PH is.... really long... Like... Longer than the harry potter series... I think it was last clocked at 750k words... 10 chapters ago... :) Don't be deterred by the length. I was, and I regret it, because it is great. I would even venture a guess to say it's better than FO:E.

Also, I didn't get sleep last night, so I may be rambling a bit... sorry :P

Well, good for you then, I guess? :)

Also, in regards to that guy who I was talking to you about earlier, he apparently went on vacation and forgot to tell anyone. Er, I think it was a vacation... I was inebriated when I found out, and now I'm just to lazy to go and re-find out. :D

Sometimes it's hard to believe you do this with a pencil. I mean look how fine it is. =O

Anyway I personally like this, especially the fine details. =)
