And I love how you know that's a milling machine! I know ponychan is awesome but I didn't know it was THIS awesome!

Anyway since each of the mane 6 has a specific profession, our "new hero" will need one as well so I decided to make this "new hero" a skilled mechanic/engineer/inventor. And that is why this new character lives in/manages a locomotive repair facility (and needs milling machines in addition to other industrial equipment/facilities) As you can see with some of the other stuff in this thread, those skills will be necessary in the coming days in Equestria.

>But at least my ponies can run a lathe.

I think your ponies and mine should get together and have a beer.

Personally my family comes from a hodge-podge of professions.

My father was a diamond setter, his father was a jeweler, and his father was a train engineer, my mother was a clerk, her father was a cable splicer/foreman for Pac Bell (now AT&T) and I am a mechanical draftsman. Its funny how these things turn out.

By the way do you know the urban legend how The Wizard of Oz and the Dark Side of the Moon album are eerily similar in some respects?

Alright... I worked my flank off on this piece and I hope everyone appreciates it as much as I do. I never did agree with the train designs within the shows canon to the point where I wanted to gouge my eyes out after seeing "Over a Barrel" for the first time. This is a kids show but it is no excuse to lack prototypical elements.

Also, humor me by reading the drawing notes, you will learn something interesting. Maybe...

And humor me some more by checking this vid. You will see why I picked this design. (Skip to about 1:20 if you don't want to wait for it to finish taking on water)

Also, I had to "hoof-handle" one of my favorite/more expensive pieces of my collection to draw this. I didn't really like doing that. However every single bit of detail has been faithfully recreated thanks to my trusty calipers.
>> No. 123684
Oh wow. Is this yours? Is this based on some model?

My girlfriends dad kinda have a thing for model trains and have quite the collection, so I actually got interested in it as well :)
>> No. 123686

Yeah the one I drew for my concept art is essentially a real steam engine designed in the 1880's by the Baldwin Locomotive works. I just used that model to draw it to scale. It wasn't easy. I suppose the reason for that was I wanted to make the equestrian railroads somewhat "prototypical" in that respect. I'm not really changing the architecture or anything else. (Just adding stuff from here on out.) Another reason why I chose this design because narrow gauge seems to be pony-sized. Perfect fit for their world.
>> No. 123688
I don't have a reaction image that would suffice enough to show how much I think of this. You put in a ton of effort I can tell. When my father when over Stateside for a trip one he saw the C-19 that's at Knotts Berry Farm. I do appreciate a good steam engine and the engineering behind it (now my steampunk gears are turning)
>> No. 123689
I know what you mean. Those bubbly trains in Equestria are kinda dumb. I mean, they're cute and all, but I wish they were more like the real "old" ones. They are harder to draw though, so it might be because they're lazy :P

In addition to that I am planning a scene in which the CMC accidentaly "hijack" a steam engine and are on a collision course with one one of these "K-27" Units:

Its going to be a high speed chase scenes involving a new "contraption" I am designing.

I'm missing all of the amazing stuff, durn it D:

Baggie really needs a steampunk getup herself, but I haven't requested art for her in a while. I'd imagine she'd more rags and wrenches though maybe even helping keep the trains clean rather than a Southern belle like dress.

I also shake my hoof angrily to get this done already! Angrily, but with love.

I know I really need to get this whole shibang started. In fact I might just do that while I'm working on concept art. You see the writers and artists for the canon comics have it easier than I do because I have to invent two entirely new factions and new settings/places. And the writing is proving to be difficult as well. This isn't your average invader story like Red Dawn, Troy, and War of the Worlds. Its much more than that, its like an adventure epic never before attempted by the shows writers or even the comics.

All I'm going to tell ya'll is some really cool shiz is gonna happen and everything is going to be awesome you will see. :)

"Woah, slow down Maurice."

I appreciate the enthusiasm, and I certainly don't doubt this project will be amazing, but careful about setting it on too high a pedestal. I'd really hate to see this crash and burn like Double Rainboom from over hype. Granted, I don't expect this to turn out even remotely into a meme-infested fan wank like that one did, but those are some mighty big words to throw about the fandom.
>> No. 123724
Valid point Baggie brings up. Also have you considered a few assistants? As you said this is an epic, and I don't want to see you toiling away for years at this (unless it's like 100 issues of some random comic deal)
>> No. 123725
I throw my bid in here. At the very least you could grab up a couple of editors for the writings. Maybe some people to color your stuff after your line work is done if you wouldn't like to collaborate. You are on a board full of artists, after all.

From what I gather, this sounds like an awesome undertaking. We just don't want you to get burnt out, nor (selfishly) do we want this project to take years to complete. We're all eagerly waiting!
>> No. 123726
I myself believe that he wants to do the writing himself. He seems to have a good idea where he wants this to go. But getting some help to finish some WIP's or just putting his ideas down on paper wouldn't hurt. It's all up to him though.

Yeah I never planned on putting too many memes in it because I don't want to muddy good story potential with internet shenanigans. Besides I wanted to utilize my own humor that includes physical comedy/slapstick. And witty observations.

Oh Leeeeeeeeeoooooooo!!!! I have something special for you!

I present to you the Steam Dozer MK I. Courteously provided by Morning Star Manufactorum LTD. Its a hybrid Steam/Electric. Electric motors power the hydralics, which are in turn powered by a steam generator.

@Equine Palette, Your OC "Shelly Shores" is very loosely connected to this machine. I want to know if you would agree with my proposal I have prepared. ;)

>> No. 123822
That flag or "standard" represents the allegiance of that specific character or national user of said machine/object. For example The gunship up top, is used by the Pendulum rebels hence it carries their standard, The shielded Iron Alicorn is the standard of the Drakovian Republic. And the Sun/Moon and 16 beams is the Equestrian standard.

This whole shibang takes place six months to a year before MMC and long after the Sombra incident. So "this characters" magical prowess really only matches/exceeds that of unicorn Twilight. (He has one or two extra tricks up his sleeve that Twilight doesnt know)

Currently his codename is "Hephaestus". (Greek God who creates lightning bolts) And hes essentially the Drakovian (name of the bad guy country) student equivalent to Twilight since he has a "master". He is also one of the very few of his nationality to have a CM. I refuse to say more.

Any concept you have drummed up sounds awesome to me! I'm curious as to how you're going to connect her!
>> No. 123884

Ok, what if...

"Shelly Shores", the daughter of "Craggy Shores" and "Sandy Shores" is the wealthy heiress of the Craggy Shores Construction Company and her father has put in an order for a dozen Mk.1 Steam Dozers, manufactured by Morning Star Manufactorum LTD. Pictured here: ( That company, has strong ties to the mane six because the "owner and founder" of that company is (or will be) a dear friend of theirs. (He or she is also a new primary character.)

And basically all this means Shellys father was so pleased with the new steam dozers that he has invited the "owner/founder" and his or her FRIENDS to visit the Shores Estate on the coast. Where I will go from there I'm not to sure but thats the connection in a nutshell.

Actually I may know where to go from there. With Shelly unwilling to maintain her fathers legacy, he is going to announce his retirement and sell his company to a wealthy Pashabi Prince and his investment company (new nationality I am developing). The deal seems ok but something doesn't seem right with the investment company...

Or "tactical data" on this villian and his fighting style? (From the ideas I have so far, the show writers will never develop a villian of this caliber, never.)

Sounds great!

And... and... I know this isn't the place to post this, but... And, I'm not asking for him to be inserted anywhere by any means! But just know, Shelly does have a brother... I didn't post him, because his colors were too saturated and he's not my favorite. If you want, pass him off as the black sheep of the family. He spends all his time surfing anyway!

I'm so sorry! I should have at least mentioned it...

Stormy Shores?

I guess he can be a background character (Shelly is going to be the first to find out the investment company are crooks anyway)

I got an idea, do you want to design the rest of the Shores family? Craggy and Sandy? It would save me a lot of work and you seem to have a knack for it.

Btw right now as Im typing I am working on the Pashabi Prince that is trying to buy her fathers company.

Also I forgot to say, normally in a family business type situation the son would take over but I guess I could write that hes either too lazy, an imbecile, or just plain not interested in taking over as well.

AAAAWWWW CRAP!!! I think Equestria Girls may have just sunk me. (Or at least severely damaged one of my primary weapon systems and I am now taking on water) The main antagonist Sunset Shimmer is a former student of Celestia that has it out for her too.
And MY primary antagonist codename: Odin is just the same Except he is a ruthless dictator Alicorn equipped with cybernetic enhancements taking orders from a world consuming energy being of incalculable power from the far north with technologically advanced armies at his disposal and a weapon of mass destruction that renders the Elements of Harmony useless and friggin' PARTICLE CANNONS!

I had a lot of moral qualms about this and hopefully it will pay off as an essential tool for the battle to take back Manehattan.

Theres a reason why its called the "Molossus", and why those sketches have timestamps. This will be the theme as it does battle with the invaders: Trust me, I play Silent Hunter (Submarine warfare sim) and naval combat and Hans Zimmers music go together like peanutbutter and jelly)

Excellent I am sure the portait will turn out just fine, bear in mind when I imagined Her mother and father, Craggy is a bit rugged and in his 60's. Mid/early 60's same as Sandy except she is a tad dainty. And the family may be rich but they are certainly not snobs. Craggy had to fight hoof and nail for every bitcoin to build his company so he understands what it takes to rise from poverty and he will never forget where he came from (and with no formal education). Sandy always stood by her husband 100% even when they took out a second mortgage to start the family company. She is kind and loving and cares for her children and openly refused to hire a nanny after Craggy's venture became successful. The only thing that changed for them after becoming wealthy was they got to live in a bigger house.

Also, deep down Craggy regrets having to sell his company to these foreign jerks (Prince Hassan is a typical snobbish jerk) and those corporate representatives are a couple of shifty-eyed shysters. Craggy just wishes his children were more interested in preserving his legacy because he worked so hard to get to where he is so he didn't have to see his family struggle. And seeing everything he earned to be passed off to some jerk with excellent credit hurts him deep down.

Also the Molossus is amazing my friend!
>> No. 124127

The Molossus is a symbol of Equestrias strength and pride. Showing that even a small but determined nation can defend itself from all threats at sea. Its namesake was suggested by Luna, derrived from one of her favorite creatures of the night, the bat. And with Equestria being a benevolent nation, many critics openly objected to its construction and development. Some want the entire fleet disbanded for being an expense waste of public funds. However Celestia insists the fleet is necessary to defend Equestrias interests at sea and its trade routes. Celestia may be all powerful but she cant be everywhere.
>> No. 124129

But deep down Celestia knows a storm is coming, a storm that she created. And she is doing whatever she can to stop it from happening. Including providing aid to the Pendulum rebels All of this could have been avoided if she had only kept her promises...

I found this video, although this is an American 16" gun turret they aren't all that different, by the way I think a better title for Eddie would be "Turret Officer" since that's the person who "pulls the trigger". Sorry I was mistaken.

I have sort of a complicated question for you fillies and gentlecolts and all your input would be very helpful.

If you had the chance to play God and create the most beautiful place on Earth, what would it look like? What sort of geographic features would it have? What type of climate or perhaps biome? What type of vegitation and plant life? Or perhaps wildlife?
>> No. 124180
I imagine a kind of endless green field with a deep blue sky and towering white clouds on the horizon almost all the time.

There are fantastical rock formations sprinkled about, some of which spilling crystal-clear water from seemingly nowhere, since there are no natural irrigation systems such as mountain streams. The only trees in this place grow around these water sources, but not many.

After the sun sets over the horizon, fireflies and other night-bugs glow and chirp away, as well as frogs. There are no natural predators, but natural death-to-birth rates keep populations from rising or falling. Ponies are the only other inhabitants.

The ponies live in small towns, with no skyscrapers or pollution of any kind. The tallest things in the entire land, aside from the fantastically gargantuan clouds, are the rock formations.

Music for this next bit:

Every once in a while, some clouds will pass overhead, carrying rain or thunderstorms, but never anything damaging.

The climate is springtime all around.

These two images are the closest things I could find, but I don't think anything will ever be able to match exactly what I'm seeing.

I would personally have a constant changing environment, with magma and water making new islands and such.

It would on one side look very dark with gray mountains and volcanoes. And on the other side it would be very silent, with just a huge sea and some islands scattered around.

Not sure about wildlife. It may be nice to focus more on the planet itself, rather than conscious beings.

I would find that interesting.

Have you tried the comics? Some of them are really great! Surprisingly dark at times too.

Also, that's a pretty rockin' battleship.

Well, what I meant was that it sounded to be full of unsavory characters in which to turn one against another for him to profit off of, but he wouldn't enjoy staying much.

Of course, despite being a clean freak, his own abode is rather ransacked from having to move things about so much. That, and since a lot of his stuff is acquired through not entirely legal channels, many of his machines are in various states of repair. They are some of the fastest computers in Equestria, even if they don't look like much, but it does tend to become a junky mess down there.

Most Drakovian weapons platforms are equipped with particle cannons and are made possible by fusion drive cores. (He has samples of those too)

He wouldn't last long in the Republic, its not an anarchist state like Tatooine or Somalia. Its an authoritarian regime.

Edit: I think the only Drakovian weapons platform that doesn't have particle cannons are my upcoming "Boomslang" anti-air vehicles. They have flak guns and phased ion colliders.

His theme must be played! Take it away Jeremy Soule!
(Humor me plz)

The fate of the world depends on this young silver stallion... Who sleeps in a garbage can... We're bucked... But with the help of his new friends he will accomplish the impossible!

(No I probably won't ship anypony with him, its stupid and predictable ( maybe if its with a non-mane 6 character still unlikely)

Also, ppffffffppffffbbb!!! on Flash Sentry! Bucking blaggot!

Humored as I love IL-2 series of games. Just how deep does that trashcan of his go?
>> No. 124236

Lol its going to be hard not to make a Sesame Street reference. But its only temporary because it all leads up to a series of hilarious reasons as to why he cant stay at any of the homes of the mane six. Once he opens his shop hes good to go.

Edit: To answer your question, its an ordinary trashcan behind sugarcube corner.

He clearly needs to be black and red with plenty of neon colors, while being related to all of the main 6 and become an alicorn.

It's the only way to be sure.
>> No. 124241

Hes not related to any of them. They kinda just found him wandering around like an amnesia case. Also he doesnt have a cutie mark.

Alicorn? I don't think the Alicorn thing is going to work, its leaning towards a stupid idea

Mainly because that idea is as predictable as a sunny day in Los Angeles

Hey, don't worry about it, just teasing you a little. I think the design is fine, and really shouldn't be worried about too much except it horrendous cases like I stated. The trash can thing is fun, I'll admit.
>> No. 124246

Its actually really really funny as to why he had to resort to sleeping in one for a short while. One of the secondary reasons is since he is a male it doesnt look right for him to be sleeping at some filly's house he hardly knows. Eventually he gets his own place to stay (A really big place too)
>> No. 124249
Character development:
He may look like the handsome type but narcissism is not one of his character traits. As for character development as I said he is an amnesia case of unknown origins with no cutie mark. Hes not Drakovian for they lack cutie marks as well He cant remember names well so he tends to give nicknames to other ponies. He likes the mane six but in moderate doses because he is known to get irritable after spending too much time with one pony. He and Twilight do share a special bond because she helped him get his business started by providing the necessary facilities for his venture. But this isn't the primary reason for their friendship, out of all of the mane six she was the first to accept him as a friend and show interest in him as a fellow intellectual. Morning Star also appears to be highly capable in the fields of engineering and mechanics and spends most of his time tinkering and creating new inventions. Morning Star claims to be professionally trained and educated but lacks physical credentials to prove this. When he is creating something new it is not without incident, he has moments where his clumsiness gets the best of him. Some of his bouts of clumsiness are so bad one of his inventions nearly destroys Ponyville and kills all of its inhabitants. But for the inventions that do work he takes great pride in them. And since he is a blank flank and appears to be in his twenties, he is often chastised for having no cutie mark but mostly ignores it. He feels he doesn't need a mark on his rear to tell him what to do. However as a dear friend of the mane six he has to spend time with them in moderation due to his disinterest in their group activities and how he is the only male. Nevertheless he does enjoy a few specific activities with the rest of the primary characters. For example with Rarity he likes to go gem hunting so he can use whatever gems he finds for his diamond cutting/drilling tools. Rainbow Dash had a hard time warming up to him at first but now they are friends he enjoys friendly flight races with her while using his favorite flying machines. As for Pinkie Pie he practically sees her every day since he first slept in her garbage can. But after got his own place he likes to stop at sugarcube corner for desserts and to try out Pinkies new recipies. Fluttershy well... Morning Star was never really into animals but he does enjoy having afternoon tea with her and he finds gardening very therapeutic. (Dont tell anypony that he likes gardening!) Since he and Applejack are both workaholics he will take his Hornsby Chain Tractor down to Sweer Apple Acres to help out with her chores. Morning Star also claims to have grown up on a farm which is why he is so used to a lot of the chores at Sweet Apple Acres. As for Twilight, since they are both highly educated they enjoy having intelligent conversations and mutual exchanges of ideas. Although this would be the basis for a romantic relationship and even though deep down Morning Star cares for Twilight very much he doesn't wan't to change the friendship status quo he has with the other primary characters as well. He is afraid it would alienate them.

Also, Morning Star is not the type to take a challenge lightly. When faced with an obstacle or a precarious situation he likes to approach it in a tactically sound way. He is not one to believe in naive ideals such as total pacifism because he is aware there are those who do not wish to speak, only destroy and the only way to get through to them is to stand up and fight. Which is one reason why this world needed him.
>> No. 124250
Glad you are not planning to ship him with the mane 6. That would be kind of lame to be honest. I just dislike when people create OC's, and then make every mare fall in love with him :/
>> No. 124251
Yep, like I said its stupid and predictable. Besides you dont see the other primary characters shacking up, they are all just friends. I intend to keep it like that.
>> No. 124252
Also there are some very profound reasons as to why he is not sexually attracted to any of the mane-six however I cannot reveal such reasons at this time. He isn't homosexual in this case, I suppose a vague explanation would be aesexuality by choice. (And no hes not Jesus or anything, hes far from that lol.)

Also they arent the mane-six anymore (at least not in this series) they are... The Mane-ificent Seven.
>> No. 124253
That was a hilarious bad pun xD

His design looks good. He doesn't look too special though. Not saying he should be a rainbow coloured alicorn, but could be something with more... personality or something. Wait... he's my boss?!

>> No. 124258
More personality huh? Hmm... I'll see what I can do.
>> No. 124262
Warning! Minor Spoilers. Here is some more character development on Morning Star:

Although the rest of the primary characters took a liking towards him after a while they each share different opinions on him.

At first Rainbow Dash thought he was a freak and a wierdo, she brushed him off as a worthless interloper. (she accused him of espionage at first as well) But eventually she backed off after he got settled in and proved himself to be useful. Of course she does have fun testing the flight speeds of his aerial contraptions. (And beating him and machines as well)

Pinkie Pie took a liking towards him right away. (She likes everypony) In fact she was the first to meet him.

Fluttershy was intimidated at first (being the way she is) but after he revealed his gentler side and his interest in gardening she wasn't so put off by him. She just wishes he wasn't allergic to half the critters she keeps.

Applejack thought he was a bit strange because of his conduct and sensitivity to excitement when he first arrived in ponyville. But it turns out they do have a bit in common after he claimed to have grown up on a farm. He offers his assistance whenever he can on her Apple Orchard, his steam tractors have proven to be useful to her enterprise.

Rarity felt sorry for him when he first arrived in Ponyville because of the meager conditions of his living arrangements. (He spent a week in a trash can who wouldn't feel sorry for him?) But she saw his arrival as a unique opportunity to develop her line of gentlecolt wear, needless to say it was hit and miss venture and he was quite annoyed how BAD she missed. (I mean BAD, really BAD...) But as I stated they do enjoy gem hunting but she wasn't too happy after she found out he uses them for industrial purposes. After he explains to her he needs them just as much as she does for his business they come to an understanding.

Twilight was confounded by him at first because of his amnesia and his lack of an explanation as to how he arrived in Ponyville. However he has shown to to have only lost his short term memory, which is why he still maintains his education as an engineer and a mechanic and his memories of the family farm. And after she learned about his unique abilities she helped him start his business and for that he is in debt to her. One of the factors regarding her liking towards him was how much he reminds her of her brother, dependable and always there and willing to provide his assistance be it mechanical and philosophical. Even if he has to drop everything hes doing in order to help. (He has excellent staff at his business to make this possible, thank you Heartstring!) Although they do tend to disagree from time to time. One such example is the creation of the Equestrian Navy, of which he provided consultation to the ship builders. Twilight thought it was an unnecessary to develop a fleet because they are a peaceful nation. Morning Star on the otherhand believes Equestria has the right to defend itself even if it means developing such weapons platforms for violent interventions.

Morning Star comes from a world plunged into chaos, set on fire by "the beast". No its not Satan thats dumb, but it is something bucking horrible. So he knows first hand that sometimes you have to fight back because there is no reasoning with monsters. He has also seen places like the Drakovian Republic, in his world there were many miserable places like that.

He has experienced many things both good and bad from which he came and one of his contributions to the other primary characters consists of acts of wisdom and sage advice based on his experiences. After all, wisdom is the better part of valor.

Oh and that bit with him living in a trash can, thats not really a reference to Sesame Street. Its more of a joke tailored towards my future critics. If they don't like him then there he is in a trashcan, enjoy.
>> No. 124264
How long have you been making up stories like these? And how did you come up with all of this? It just seems pretty complex, so you must have been thinking about this for some time now.
>> No. 124265

For a while. I have been a Brony since late December and I started developing this story since late January. I was very upset with MMC and since then the whole thing has been kind of a nightmare. And I managed to channel those emotions into practical ideas over time. So in a way, my anger and frustration has become exemplified by the bad guys in this new series and their leader who is attempting to kill Celestia and Luna. Essentially, I'm Equestrias reckoning. (Please read that in Banes voice.)

As for my designs and concept art it takes hours sometimes days to develop this things because of the mass of sketches that must be done before hand. And out of those sketches I had to select one. For example that gunship up top, I must have went through 20-30 sketches before I picked one I liked. I went with that design because if you look at its profile, you can tell resembles a horses head.

Oh and you should see what Morning Star looked like at first. It was bad.

Edit: And after what happened in Equestria Girls and how they took away one of my ideas... They have my permission to die. (Again, Bane voice)

I see. Well, it's good you managed to get this thing going instead of just making it a project for the future, and then never getting it started... Not that I've ever done that <-<
>> No. 124268
Releasing Morning Star the other day was a big step towards that. He has turned out to be the most fluid element in this entire project and he is constantly changing, even now. Because of him its taking a long time to actually make the comics because I want to be sure he will be a welcome member of the cast of primary characters.

I would like to reiterate I never ever plan on shipping him with the other primary characters for many in-story and logical reasons. One reason like I said he doesn't have normal sexual attractions. He likes Twilight a lot for helping him out with everything and because of how much they have in common but thats about it. Although he does keep a picture of her on his desk in his office, its there to remind him that if not for her he wouldn't have his business, a place to live, and wonderful new friends.
>> No. 124275
I do like that touch with the picture of Twilight. I'm sick of projects which ship the character with the first member of the Mane 6 they find. I must say he is a complex character isn't he? You and I become fans around the same time it seems, I got introduced to the shown in the middle of January. I know I must sound like a broken record, but I cannot wait to see more.
>> No. 124276
He is complex, part of his complexities stems from his life in the other world, it wasn't easy and he faced many hardships. He comes from a world filled with death, destruction, and chaos. The same goes for why he doesn't have normal sexual attractions, the "other world" kinda ruined that for him. But nevertheless he does love the rest of the primary characters and cares for them deeply. They are like his family.

Also, in no way is he some sort of doppleganger of myself, (maybe a little since he does technical drawings) but in reality I'm more like Pinkie Pie! :D That's another mistake writers make is inserting themselves into a world they don't belong.

Also, I guess its fate that we became bronies around the same time Leo :) However I think after all this is over I may leave the bronyhood...

Character profile? Refresh my memory, was it the thing from pastebin?

But I guess the reason why I want to leave the bronyhood is because I didn't like the way the show is going. Of course that doesn't mean I won't be sticking around here! :D I love you all and you ponies are like my family now.

After all this is over I plan on releasing a comic about Morning Stars past, its really sad and messed up but its a story that deserves telling.

Be interesting to see Morning Stars past a bit more too. Just curious, is his name based off the medieval weapon?

Alright I'll go look at his pastebin article, I didnt know I can edit that.

Yes I did have that specific weapon in mind when I gave him his name. But I cant give away his actual namesake for plot reasons.

And in about 12 hours I'm going to release one of his flying machines.

Many a manly tear was shed this day... I love the references in there as well. Just curious it looks like a mix of of P-38, T-33, and V-22. Am I right in saying that?

Depends on whos asking, based on that story I told before my family tends to think I'm a moron, for what reasons I don't know. But Morning Star is a bit of a mad genius and he has a zero tolerance for out of date, unreliable technology. Of course madness does unfortunatley run in his family...

And yes the V-22 and the P-38 were major influences on its design. This thing is going to be like the Millenium Falcon/time traveling Delorean in this series, the primary characters need it to get around efficiently.

Like its tail number? You can thank Indiana Jones for that. Also "Fortunate Son" by Creedance Clearwater Revival and "Break on through" by the Doors are quintessential helicopter music tracks, ask any American Vietnam veteran.

I can tell you right away the Drakovian tank chassis are very similar to the Russian T-72 variant and beyond. Except the turret is very unorthodox due to its wedge shape design. But the Fortunate Son wouldnt be too difficult because of its similarity to the P-38.

Well this is good. My associate/consultant came over today and we decided to watch MLP for research purposes. To develop character interactions for Morning Star. And the good news is my brain doesn't melt anymore!

Also, he knows about the tilt-rotocopter and that bit I wrote about it. At the start of the show we laughed our flanks off at the "stupid and slow" hot air balloon in the show titles.

Another one of his talents is he likes to sing. His neighbors in his apartment complex get mad at him and holler, pound the walls, and scream at him to stop but he just threatens them with his military credentials.

Edit: He can dance too.

The bad guys are gonna get some new toys soon. Starting with a new APC with a mounted single phased ion collider.

This vehicle represents the backbone of the Drakovian armed forces because of its versatility as a multipurpose armored transport. Its standard variant utilizes a single phased ion collider and is frequently used for anti-infantry roles and crowd control/law enforcement.

The medium density particle cannon variant sacrifices its carrying capacity for its weapon systems and is used primarily as an anti-armor weapon and often used to clear and destroy structures.

The surface-to-air variant is equipped with twin SAM pods and can be used against pegasi if necessary.

The CIC (Combat information Center) variant is unarmed and is the rarest of the Death Adder series because only one is issued per battalion. It features long range telemetry equipment to establish wireless communication infrastructure for all of the Drakovian armed forces in which vasts amounts of combat data can be channeled and distributed to all friendly units on the battlefield.

Occasionally you will find a few of these APC's equipped with a mine plough as an intimidation weapon as opposed to its intended purpose. (Clearing mines)

Sov's notes: I can tell you all right away this vehicle is going to serve two important plot related functions, one of which has to do with the Cutie Mark Crusaders and will be hilarious. The CIC variant will play a very important role down the road. And no, the CIC variant is not the bad guys Achilles Heel.

Also I have to give credit to the German Panzer Marder for influencing this design.

Wow. That is... epic. Nice work :)

Every time I release stuff like this I kinda feel bad because I don't want folks to get the wrong idea of what I am doing, this is going to be part slice-of-life/adventure epic kinda like Star Wars. Not some sort of military drama, these are just tools that serve plot conflicts.

Also, the CMC are going to have a lot of fun with this APC...

I understand. But if we look through all your art work on this thread, I think one can put a couple of pieces together.
Not.. sure if I used that right.

No you hit the nail on the head. :)

Still have a couple things I have yet to do with the bad guys, one of which are their basic "hoof" soldiers, I can tell you right away they have a portable version of my "Ion Colliders" on their backs that kinda do a really cool "whirling" motion when they are deployed.

I suppose the idea that's hindering me from releasing them are whether or not they should have some sort gas mask but I don't want to play out a cliche others have done successfully like Killzone, Fallout, Red Alert, and Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

As I was telling Leo, after I'm through with the vehicles I am going to talk to some model kit companies about licensing my vehicles, legally I might be able to get away with it as long as I (or they) don't market any pony related figures/accessories to go with the vehicles. It would be nice if I could because I would like to see a good chunk of the profits go to charity.

Gonna shake things up. Soon, starting by releasing at least one piece of concept art per day, in addition to submitted OC's from my recruiting thread. Some of which I have neglected and I feel bad for that. For a while now I have been enthralled with my contraptions which I love drawing so much.

As for starting the comic, I know exactly how that is going to work in the beginning its just Morning Star is such a highly fluid character but his quirky inventive personality will remain the same.

You know I have a sinking feeling that everypony is starting to lose their attention as to what I am doing, therefore I decided to begin work on the comic today to shake things up even more. Thats right it has officially started. Heres a blurry prototype:

Edit: I said I was going to start it over a week ago but I still have everything I need to start.

I find the more sleep I get the faster the sickness passes. Its 9:00am over there you can probably get a couple more hours in. School/work creates stress and I find that it can extend a sickness drastically. When I was in college I had a cold that turned into an infection because of this stupid paper I had to write. :S (Actually it wasn't that stupid, it was about illegal arms trading.)

Also I think I may have found something better for your OC, I was thinking of making Leo Morning Stars public relations pony. He makes advertisements and videos for his business. :D

And CC&HS, I was thinking of making Heart String Morning Stars lead electrician. I figure with the bolt cutie mark she would be perfect for that. Plus I need her to work on the electrical systems for my Uboats.

Well I just want to be sure that whatever ideas I have for Leo are consistent with yours. And hopefully his experiences in this continuum will give you some ideas for his character development later. Hopefully he will have plenty of experiences to reflect upon as well.

Also, once I get more in the swing of things I would like to do a cooperative project with you and create a short stand-alone comic about Leo and his Shenanigans. I would like to do that with the other OC's submitted with this project. Something like this though would be further down the line because I just started the other day and I have a couple pages in.

I must admit I do hold a very special place in my heart for Leo. I just hope that statement doesn't alienate the other submittees...

Luckily we recently moved the computer downstairs, up to his room. If we could just get it to work, there will be no more "hope-for-more" replies, on my computer.

>> No. 124847
Well hes going to be more of an honorary CMC. He really doesn't care about getting his cutie mark because in his homeworld there was no such thing.

I don't really have anyone (coworkers are jerks not interested in them) and I'm not really in any into romantic relationships because I never really was into that sort of thing. The only other people I have is my family which is ok but I dont have anything in common with them and I dont have anything to really say to them.

The Boomslang Anti-air vehicle is considered one of the deadliest vehicles in the Drakovian arsenal because of its prevalent use as an anti-infantry weapon in addition to its primary anti-air role. It features four ultra efficient "particle repeaters", a toned down version of the standard particle cannon. Each particle repeater has a firing rate of 20,000 particle exposures per-minute and may fire continuously for as long as two minutes at a time without overheating. The particle repeaters also have the ability to pivot in order to fire upon close range targets. Its crews have given it the nickname the "Organ Grinder" because of its involvement in a massacre several years beforehand that killed thousands and the sheer carnage that was left over as a result of its use at the time.

Sov's notes: I developed this weapons platform out of PURE, INDISCRIMINATE, HATRED for so many things I would like to see obliterated by it. Starting with Trixie, Prince Blueblood, and now Flash Sentry. My thirst for carnage is at hand but I probably won't show anything that graphic of that in my series, trying to keep things PG or PG-13 at least.

Helloooo... Mods? Applejack? Shining Armor?... Pinkie Pie?... I don't ever want to see my thread get the chance to 404...I'm scared...
