Old thread: http://www.ponychan.net/chan/art/res/122621.html
Deviantart: http://reapersovereign000.deviantart.com/

Whelp it finally happened, My old concept art thread I started in April autosaged and now I am starting a new thread, I'm going to re-post a lot of the old stuff but to be fair I will spoiler the old stuff but add some interesting new facts as well to shake things up.

To my loyal followers: As much as I love you all, lets keep the chatter related to the subject at hand, granted I am just as guilty for "deviating" in my old thread... :S

This is a prototype "tilt-roto" aircraft designed by Morning Star Manufactorums LTD. and nicknamed the "Fortunate Son" by its creator is the first of its kind to be seen in the skies above Equestria. It's innovate design allows prompt vertical takeoffs in which its engines can later rotate to provide forward thrust. This aircraft seats seven, (even though Rainbow Dash prefers her own wings) and features 8 .30 cal machine guns, 6 .50 cal wing mounted machine guns, and two 40mm cannons in addition to evasive countermeasures and several other "devices" to be used in a pinch.

Sov's notes: This vehicles design was based heavily off of Second World War aircraft such as the P-51 Mustang and the P-38 Lightning and incorporates features of the modern V-22 Osprey. Its namesake is derived from the Creedance Clearwater Revival song "Fortunate Son", made popular during the Vietnam war. And if you look carefully its tail number reads "2D-2R", which is obviously "RD-D2" backwards which is a reference to the similar "C-3PO" airplane tail number reference in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Its a chain of references! Also there is a pair of dice on a roll of seven painted on the fuselage, this is meant to symbolize the new "mane character" (The handsome unicorn colt in the upper right corner) and his new friends. (The mane-six)

(RE-POST)

Field Marshal Serj is one of few magic users of his nationality and the only Drakovian citizen with a cutie mark. He was selected many years beforehand to be the personal student of his country's mysterious leader, much like Twilight Sparkle. His magical prowess is on par if not exceeds that of Twilight, however unlike his Equestrian counterpart his magic skill sets tend to be electric based. He has also shown to be quite adept at Pashabi marshal arts which combines the use of magic and and lethal hand-to-hand (hoof -to-hoof) combat techniques that involves rapid teleportation and brutal physical/kinetic attacks.

Years beforehand Serj oversaw the senseless liquidation of a rebel held town in which thousands were slaughtered by his order which included mostly innocent civilians, an event that will haunt him for the rest of his life. But until recently he was given total control of the Drakovian invasion forces, and with his new given responsibilities he only hopes he will never have to give the same gruesome order again.

Sov's notes: Ok there are several inspirations behind this particular character one of which is Col. Sauffenberg of the German Army during the Second World War, the other would be his namesake, the lead singer of System of a Down "Serj Tankian" who often wrote songs that deal with relative themes to this character such as war, chaos, and authoritative brutality.

The Lancehead tank represents the hammer of the Drakovian invaders, it features a heavy Particle Cannon on its right side and two phased Ion Colliders on its left side which provides the tank with anti-infantry/short range anti-air support, and a topside ultra-light particle repeater that can be controlled remotely from within the vehicle. Like most of its Drakovian vehicular counterparts it features a unique wedge shaped turret and ceramic composite armor. Quite often this vehicle can be seen almost "flying" across the battlefield performing acrobatic jumping stunts at speeds exceeding 45 MPH (72 KM) which is made possible by its powerful fusion drive cores that power the vehicle.

Sov's notes: I can easily say modern Russian tanks have played a large part in the design for this vehicle in addition to the Urutu viper providing the shape of its turret. You will find a lot of my vehicles are named after/inspired by venomous reptiles.

The Gaboon ballistic missile platforms are usually deployed outside the front lines and acts primarily as a support weapon by lobbing Longfang missiles from great distances. Longfang missile capabilities vary per warhead, some warheads carry sarin and mustard gas modules that explode mid air to cause significant carnage to biological targets. But more often than not they are equipped with conventional high explosive and incendiary warheads.

Sov's notes: Again inspired by soviet vehicles, especially the SA-4 Ganef which fires high altitude anti-aircraft missiles. Not one of my favorites of the bad guys but I still kinda like it.

Grr... RE-POST... Sorry about this...
The Drakovians needed a multipurpose vehicle to fulfill many combat roles and the Deathadder is what they got. The standard variant features a single phased ion collider and primarily used as a rapid armored transport. The AD2 variant sacrifices its transport capabilities and utilizes a medium density particle cannon used to clear out garrisoned structures and light anti-tank duties, the AD3 variant is equipped with XSAM missiles designed to lock on to aerial targets such as gunships and even pegasi. CADC Variant is highly uncommon for only one is issued per battalion and fits the primary role as a command vehicle that establishes wireless communication hubs and processes masses of combat data and redistributes it to all friendly units. After the Equestrian invasion the Deathadder crews love to utilize the mine plough to scare and intimidate the conquered citizens into submission during urban patrols.

Sov's notes: As I said two specific plot functions. And where are bad guy ponies getting this kind of technology and building such mean things? There are very profound reasons as to why which I refuse to disclose at this time.

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. This character and his actions are related to said massacre: http://dash.ponychan.net/chan/files/src/137421006072.jpg

Sov's notes: This will probably be the last of the tracked vehicles of the Drakovians and serves as the most malicious one of all. The name of this vehicle is derived from the venomous South African Colubridae the Boomslang which is Afrikaans for Boom - "Tree" Slang "Snake". Boomslangs are known to hunt lizards, chameleons, and birds and I figured such a name would be appropriate for a vehicle that is designed to shoot down aircraft.

No you're still in, it would be a dick of me to go back on my word.

Regardless I haven't heard back from some of the other "caretakers" of the other OC's. But I have heard from Leo and hes pretty sick, he was in the hospital last week. I was really worried... CC&HS is around... I think... He moved his pc to his brothers room and he doesn't get much time to use it I suppose. I have heard from Nerdpony on deviantart hes doing alright.

I wonder if Data stream is around. His OC actually plays a very VERY important role. As does Florid, I may have linked the two for an idea.
>> No. 125066
>>125065
Yeah, I was reading through the old thread and just recently seen that Leo had that happen to him, like food poisoning or something. That made me feel bad, but at least he's out now, and I'm guessing didn't have to have surgery?

I think anyone who's had to live with a sibling has had a similar problem, but I hope things work out for CC&HS soon. I plan to buy a new computer myself soon, but that's more because this one has really had it and then some. Bringing it in for repairs is worse that letting it limp on its last leg, we're just dragging it by the arms now.

Linking OC storylines sounds really cool, I hope that works out too.

As with everything else here, I'm looking forward to it! Also, you do the actually good trains, showing your work and whatnot, which makes it even harder to wait. :P

There's a reason why the Boomslang is called "The Organ Grinder" I wrote more about it and included more fluff on some of the other vehicles and characters in this thread as well, one of which is Serj, Twilight's counterpart/nemesis.

How do you like Appleblooms little TF2/Full Metal Jacket reference in the motorcycle scene? ;)

It's good that Serj actually regrets his actions, it's not just "haunted edgy past" junk, and he's not just all evil for the sake of evil.

Yeah, I was going to comment on that when I was first reading through it, but then I kept on reading and forgot :/ I'm guessing Full Metal Jacket references will almost be a usual thing? :P

>>125070
Well like all soldiers Serj does what hes told, his "master" told him to carry out the order so he did and he regrets it. On the outside he expresses his regret because the civilians were more valuable alive as a source of information. But deep down he felt there was no honor in what he did.

Either way he is still faithful to his "master" and if he wants him to go to war with Equestria then so be it. But this doesn't make him a tool, he has his own goals/desires. Once of which is apprehending Twilight and her friends.

Btw he talks like Christian Bale. (pic related)

Also, Appleblooms helmet will probably be the only FMJ reference, although I was thinking of a scene in which the mane-7 are walking cautiously behind a row of tanks during a firefight similar to the scene in the movie when they were playing "Surfing Bird" by the Trashmen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cV9TClQu4Nk

Are Drakovians proud warrior race guys? Or at least the good ones?

I am now imagining Christian Bale as Batman, as a pony, and as a villain. It's weird.

Yeah, it's more just various military movie references in general overall isn't it? I still like that Forrest Gump one.
>> No. 125075
>>125073
There's one more reference in which a Lancehead tank hastily ascends from a slope and slams into the ground with great force causing whatever characters (Probably the primary characters) below to flee. Kinda like the once scene in Saving Private Ryan with the Tiger tank slamming into the ground. Other than that, that's it for war movie references.

Also the Drakovian nation was founded by its leader after he fled Equestria and his own master, Celestia. Before then it was an impoverished backwater country experiencing a brutal civil war. The "mysterious leader" took the side of the collectivists and lead them to victory. The losing side reorganized into the "Pendulum Contingency". I have an explanation for their technology too and it has to do with their leader but refuse to divulge more.

Also, remember Lusha? http://pinkie.ponychan.net/chan/files/src/136885800020.jpg My consultant and I decided he will talk like Steve Carell. So the CMC are going to make friends with Gru/Brick from Anchorman.

Its good to hear back from you Leo. I was getting worried again.

And I have a good idea of what makes Leo "Leo" from his profile I carefully studied. Although I'm still stumped as to how hes going to get the PR position whilist being interviewed by M.S. (Morning Star) When the time comes I think during the inverview he will get intimidated/nervous by the questions but he will show something that essentially "Wow"s M.S. into hiring him but I still dont know for sure. I don't plan on getting that far until at least Issue 3.
>> No. 125081

Anyway Leo, still not sure what to do, work with me! :D Two heads are better than one! Although it may be a ways away it will be nice to have some ideas set in stone for Leo in the long run.

I was thinking he decides to act like a character from one of his favourite films or something along the lines of.... M.S notices this change of character (I'm assuming that he has been in Equestria for awhile now.) Notices who Leo is portraying and they discuss films and the like.
>> No. 125084
>>125082
Well M.S. did fall right out of the sky (literally) and theres still a lot for him to understand. In his homeworld there weren't any movies for him to watch (not sure if there were movies at all) but maybe when he arrives he could have watched one that he really liked and Leo just so happened to be acting out and they kinda hit it off and M.S. gave him a chance.

In reality during interviews, a situation like this rarely works out especially if the interviewer changes the subject and goes off tangents. But then again this is a world of magical ponies and its about to get particle cannons and a villian who talks like Christian Bale... So what the hay. :)

>> No. 125088

By the time he starts hiring ponies for his workshop would have been a couple weeks and he would have already starting living in the office quarters.

Still keeping ideas on the table though. One other idea I had would be M.S. was very irritated because he had a very hard time finding a PR pony or there just werent any available at all and while Leo was visiting Ponyville the two run into eachother at a public place and get to talking.

Well, it's not so much holidays as it is prepping for college. Last year I had to sit out and had to keep myself afloat with a job after they told me there was a "discrepancy" on my tax papers and I couldn't get my scholarship money, and of course they only told me that after it was way too late to change.

Hello Data stream, its good to hear back from you.

I have been lacking in the OC department for a while and I have been meaning to ask you something about your OC, I kinda want to make one or two changes to his appearance. First I want to give him somewhat rectangular glasses and a lab coat. For some reason I imagine him as a "Otacon" type character from Metal Gear Solid with all the cool stuff he has.
>> No. 125099
>>125098
It's just like one of my Japanese animes!

Funny you should mention rectangle glasses actually. I originally planned for him to have those, but they didn't have any in the pony creator, or I didn't like how they looked. After that, I just stuck with his normal ones. I really should commission a ref sheet for him, or at least art of some form.

I think a lab coat could work, especially while he is tinkering away at stuff.

Having him be Otacon styled could be interesting. I'm curious now to what you have in mind for him.

(pic somewhat related)

Well story wise from what I have he likes to live outside of Ponyville in a hidden bunker, it has a tungsten alloy vault door that emerges from the ground if you enter the key combination right on a false rock underneath a tree. He is very reclusive because of all the contraband he has stashed in his facility. (I mentioned he has particle cannons) When he is out and about its to get the dirt on ponies and profit from it. (Colts gotta make a living somehow right?) But most of the time he just tinkers away with his "toys" he obtained illegally.

The primary characters need information from him and they stop by to pay him a visit after accomplishing a convoluted series of steps to get a hold of him.
>> No. 125102
>>125101
Yeah, I know Otacon, I was referencing the "Awesome" series of Metal Gear, even if their humor has grown a bit stale after being spammed over everywhere. Granted, as much as I liked Metal Gear Solid, I still have yet to play much of the other games yet. I played a small bit of 3, but despite getting good reviews, I still haven't played the 4th one. I'm waiting for a PS3 to try it. I can't afford too much. But I'm just rambling off topic at this point.

Yeah, I do imagine him to have a very convoluted entrance to his abode. He'll act friendly to many, but he genuinely opens up to pretty much no one. And if someone actually managed to get into his place, he'd act much more like himself, which isn't exactly pleasant. Not specifically mean, mind you, but rather up front.
>> No. 125103
>>125102
One of the things that will make him very upset will be Pinkie Pie, she mistakenly activates one of his particle cannons and blows a hole through one of his computers.

I was also leaning towards Pinkie shooting herself with a low powered version slamming herself against the wall. You know, good ol' slapstick.
>> No. 125104
>>125103
And I'm guessing that even a low powered version usually blows a hole through ponies, leading to a moment of panic from him as it heats up, but Pinkie being Pinkie is mostly unharmed?
>> No. 125105
>>125104
Yeah for the most part she is unharmed aside from being blown against the wall.

>> No. 125107

Well other than what I said so far not really, I kinda want to at least withold the plot related reason as to why they needed to pay him a visit. I will say he has sparse but some info on Field Marshal Serj.

I really want to get into OC's again, after I finish this next piece of (color) concept art I'll do just that.

I have to admit, a lot of your stuff looks like it could really work, which goes a long way on helping establish a universe.

>> No. 125116

After arriving in ponyville he establishes a business (with the help of his new friends of course) that becomes very successful developing useful inventions, in his world of origin he obtained professional training in mechanical engineering but didn't get a chance to use it similar events took hold that are about to happen in Equestria in his home world and he got involved.

A lot of his stuff like the Fortunate Son (RD doesn't like it btw) are basically showpieces for his business and that's how he helps nab clients. One of which was Shelly Shore's father who purchased a dozen steam dozers.

As for the friction between the Pendulum Contingency and the Drakovian Republic, a vast majority of that will tend to stay out of Equestria when they do rumble. The primary characters get caught in the middle. Afterwards the bad guys invade Equestria. That's all I am going to divulge for now.

The Sabertooth is a fast attack vehicle designed by Contingency engineers and former Drakovian scientists and is equipped with four directional anti-grav fins, and a powerful rear pulse engine. It is armed with two 20mm Gatling cannons and two missile pods mounted on the aft directional fins. This vehicle is designed for fast hit-and-run style attacks against light armored vehicles and given flat sloped profiles and retractable weapons ports to avoid radar detection. Like most vehicles of the Pendulum Contingency it utilizes anti-grav technology and must be armed with conventional projectile weapons to compensate for power consumption and stress applied to its fusion drive core.

Sov's notes:

A good guy vehicle! And its in color! Yay! :D But this will probably be one of the few colored concept art pieces because of time constraints.

Why is it that rebel factions don't believe in paint touch-ups? Because paint is expensive, especially areospace paint. During the Second World War the Imperial Japanese navy often skipped on new paint jobs because it wasn't available.

To my loyal House of Sovereign,

There was a recent facebook post of the HUB page mentioning some sort of official announcement. Needless to say I am a bit shocked with curiosity but at the same time this has lit a fire under my flank. From now on I will even harder try to do something every day and something amazing like paintings again because I need to get this thing off the ground now, believe it or not I am competing against season 4 in terms of story/scope and depth.

And with that here's a portrait of Serj. Christian Bale pony is watching you clop and hes going to electric pawnch you in the face ;)

Naaa he just wants to kill Twilight Sparkle and her friends and invade Equestria. That's all.

And yes the Rebel Rouser was kinda inspired by the Ork Trukk but more along the lines with WWII era halftracks and those beastly 1930's Mercedes troop transports from Raiders of the Lost Ark I liked so much.

Oh and Mcleeches Bitch'n halftrack from "The Rescuers: Down Under".

Well, actually I was refering more to the sabertooth, rather than the recent one. The Rebel Rouser certainly is more WWII inspired, though there is a little bit of 40k there.


Dat halftrack was bitch'n. Makes sense for an Australian badass. Sniper had some mean competition back then.

And yeah you will find a lot of M.S.'s vehicles and creations are seemingly on par WWII era technology (Including his upcoming diesel/electric submarine) mainly because his home world was on par with that level of technology after he left and that's about all he knows, (basically 1930's/1920's dieselpunk world) when he gets a chance to see all this crazy tech belonging to the Contingency and Drakovians he is shocked bewildered, as are his new friends.

Also, he tends to keep petroleum powered vehicles to himself because I wrote that Equestria hasn't made oil refinement practical because there aren't enough oil deposits in Equestria to make oil based energy production feasible and still utilizes a lot of coal.(In which that part is canon) Which is why his inventions he puts on the market are still steam driven. So he refines his own petroleum wherever he finds it for his own uses.

Well with the reposts I thought it would be nice to add some fluff to the vehicles and explain as to why the bad guys have them, mainly for locking horns (No pun intended) with the Pendulum Contingency. The decision for them to "Invade Equestria" kinda comes out of nowhere, but in reality the primary antagonist has been plotting it for years (I still refuse to release any info on him, just Serj)

By the way I have been reading these books recently and all I'm going to say is Twilight and her friends are going to play submarine! :D

Well, I am soon heading off to a boarding school, so that problem will probably be solved by then. Which also means I'll be less on the internet all around. They have blocked the connection in the rooms we're staying, so I need to go somewhere special, to find a connection.

But I will hopefully be able to check for updates everday ^^

Whelp I think I have two goals, get the first volume before you head off and before God damned November 23rd when the actual show airs in North America. :S


They probably have internetz in the school library you can use, I don't know if you can access ponychan. Nevertheless, I'll miss you buddy! :)

Edit: Third goal, learn the crap out of photoshop and find a way to keep it from expiring.

Edit edit: I suppose the primary reason why I am afraid of the show beating me to the punch are my villians. I have painstakingly developed everything for the past 8 months and they have received a great amount of my attention because I want my readers to really hate them (character wise not quality wise of course). I said I may release more information on "Serj" and as I said before he is very deadly. And his encounter with Twilight and her friends will leave the readers with a feeling of "HO-LY FUCK, WHAT A PSYCHO/BRUTE..." I will release a rendering soon that literally sets the stage for that.

Well mainly comic panels :S, I have seen other successful fancomics done with photoshop. I was originally going to use corel draw but I changed my mind.

Another problem I am having is figuring out an "art style" to go with which is why those prototypes are still uncolored. I don't know if I want to use the same exact vectors from the show, cartoony like the official IDW comics, develop my own style which I am at a loss. Everypony has seen my work and my contraptions it would be hard to express the detail I want if I decide to go cartoony.

I'm really open to suggestions on this and the sooner I figure this out the better (And the rest of my ideas will be safe).
>> No. 125379

Well, rather cartoony than show accurate. Finding your own style, would probably be the best, but also hard.

Pretty good, I have been reading some practical books on the subject and essentially its a combo ballistic missile sub/carrier so it will probably be almost 400 ft long. (Which is huge for a WWII style diesel/electric sub) It will carry about 3 ballistic missiles and have six bow torpedo tubes and two in the stern in addition to a retractable deck gun and various anti-aircraft guns on the conning tower. And like I said, accommodate the Fortunate Son. Something like this is kind of unheard-of and uncommon as far as submarines go. (Morning Star likes to be prepared for anything)

Still, I cant decide which is more adorable. American style sailor hats or Deutschen Uboot mann folded caps for the "crew", you ponies decide:

Edit: I'm also looking into Sterling Engines for propulsion, modern navies have looked into them and I think it would be interesting. I like to be like Tom Clancy with these things, Sci-fi with realism.

I started my new job a couple days ago and the project hasn't been on my mind. Which is bad because I want to get volume 1 before you go to that boarding school. But the good news is I decided on an art style to go with comic wise.

Sadly had to attend to a few matters for a few days, but I'm back now, though I'm going to be busy during the weekend too.

Another bit of bad news, for me at least, is that after my computer crashed, we had to replace it with an older model that can't run TF2 :/
No more hats for me for a while.

There's going to be some obvious favoritism toward the "Team Captain" style, but only one gets to wear that hat. As for the rest, it's almost a case where different hats suit different ponies better.

The "Little Buddy" style hat fits Pinkie (Pyro) quite well, but I don't see it working as well on Applejack. The somewhat "Pilotka" hat fits her so much better, but doesn't fit Pinkie Pie as much as the hat she has on.

Finally got around to reading some of the Star Wars books, been taking my time with that since I've heard there is generally more misses than hits, but I've always heard that if you're going to read any Star Wars books, read the Grand Admiral Thrawn trilogy. I'll admit, from what I've read so far, the first book is fairly good. If you're into Star Wars, I'd recommend you give "Heir to the Empire" a look, Thrawn seems to have a bit in common with ol' Serj.

Also, as an added bonus Talon Karde I was telling you about makes his debut in these books, so I have a little more inspiration for Data Stream now.

REPOST PIC

As far as Serj goes, like Twilight he is the chosen one to reign over his nation once his master decides the time is right. But for now he is still a student. As a villian, he feels a lot of what he does is for the good of his nation and the principles of industrial collectivism, as Baggie Pack said hes not evil just for the sake of evil, he has his own designs. (some of which conflict with his masters ideals) One of which was his particular interest in Twilight especially after the Chrysalis attacks. (Mainly because his nation had a similar problem with her after her attack on Equestria, the changelings were easily thwarted thanks to their superior anti-aircraft platforms) There is even an instance when Twilight and Serj have met before these events take place, I have written a very clever sub-story as to how Serj managed to infiltrate the Grand Galloping Gala and was the cause of the whole thing to fall apart to cover his escape, it wasn't necessarily the mane-six being stupid as told within the shows canon.

Hes going to be an interesting and complicated villian, but he is also a brute, there will be a time in which he severely physically beats the mane-6 using his Pashabi martial arts techniques. He is also the type to "kick them while they're down" as well. That experience will be very gut-wrenching when the time comes.

Well, I haven't seen Thrawn hand out any beatdowns yet, but he keeps an unstable clone of a jedi master on a leash without sweating, so I assume he has at least some training to back up on. Beyond his silver tongue, of course, though instead of a buttering up kind of way, it's more so through logic and reasoning.

Basically, during the events of the old movies, he was out fighting in the outer rim facing off all sorts of nasty things not even heard of by the people of the core worlds, giving him a tactical edge. He comes back after the Emperor is killed and musters up the ragtag forces that are left and poses a serious threat to the now New Republic, even retaking Couresant. Think a little if Emperor Palpitine was Augustus, Thrawn is Caesar back from fighting the barbarians and retaking Rome. Interesting stuff. He also sees himself more in that Caesar role as opposed to some dark side ruler bent on spreading suffering.

Also, rather interesting stuff on Serj there. I think as you can tell, I'm rather fond of villains, and even had Data Stream sort of set up as one himself, but decided against it at least for this story.

More WIP:

Thrawn sounds like a badass, I think I'm going to pick up on his series of books.

As for Serj, hes much more "hands on", if there's something he wants he gets it himself, the old "If you want something done right, do it yourself." mentality. He isn't a typical "deskjob" general type, hes always on the field at all times even going as far as to participate in combat, usually by Crewing a Lancehead Tank. Its that kind of mentality that gave him the gumption to crash the Gala and eventually, beat Twilight to a pulp. All because he can as well. However its more complicated than that, with him being Twilight's counterpart, his curiosity of all her accomplishments made him want to confront her in combat, to see if the stories live up to the legend, everything he does is not just blind rage.

I'm glad you already like him as a villain even though he hasn't really done anything yet, that means I'm going my job right. I really wish I could go into details but I don't want to spoil months of developing this character and his plans. But I guarantee you, he is among the most well developed villains in MLP history. When the time comes he will make Sunset Shimmer and Trixie look like worthless sluts.

Btw Datastream always struck me as more on an anti-hero.

Thats alright Data Stream, your education comes first. But I'm glad you're still sticking around. That goes for you too CC&HS, I'm glad too see you are still around too. But thanks guys that means a lot. I have worked very hard of this project for many months and there are still gaps to fill. I wish I could reveal a lot more of the major plot information but I assure you there are things that are planned out to a tee. For example all of my bad guy vehicles have systems on board that enable them to sense and detect magic usage, the slightest horn twinkle and the vehicles passive AI will temporary seize control of the weapon systems and rapidly neutralize its magic user target in fractions of a second. That way a wise flank unicorn cant just make the treads disappear and turn the tanks into a bouncy super ball for shits and giggles.

I suppose the reason why I am so worried is M.S. is essentially a Gary Stu, and people hate that trope. And theres no avoiding the Gary Stu trope especially with his qualifications as an inventor. And trying to insert him in the inner circle of the mane-6 will be very difficult. And as for the hardest part I'm worried about is getting the readers to like him. So far I have tried my best to exclude any shipping between him and the rest of the mane six. And its hard to make the series not revolve around him even though in the very end he asserts a role of astronomic significance.

The "Samson" is essentially a climax logging locomotive modified with tank treads that enable the vehicle to traverse all types of terrain. It is marketed as a "do anything" vehicle capable of hauling even the heaviest of cargo. The Samson features a unique centered flexible drive shaft that provides power to both sets of tank treads similar to its rail-bound counterpart, in addition to a "power steering" mechanism that can be operated from within the cab.

The "Bear Trap" is a Steam/Electric hybrid tree extraction machine used to replant and relocate trees safely and efficiently. Its namesake was coined by its sinister design although its purposes are generally benevolent. The machine is powered by a coal fired vertical boiler and equipped with a "Franco-Crosti" pre-boiler to optimize fuel efficiency when operating out in the fields. The Vertical boiler in turn powers a steam turbine/electric generator to provide electricity for the powerful extraction machine and its hydraulic systems.

Sov's notes: I'm not making this shit up for giggles, a lot of what I design takes lots of research for these things to make sure I have a practical machine that can actually work, a lot of steam punk literature pisses me off when they design a system that wouldn't really work because they don't know anything about real steam power. Seriously, Google "Franco Crosti boiler" and "Climax locomotive".

BTW Heres some BGM I intend to use for the tree replanting montage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hVcmwQANMk

Thanks, I appreciate that. I try my best to make sure my designs have some basis on reality. Even the bad guy/good guy vehicles are practical to certain extents. Granted particle collider technology is still in its infacy as are fusion drive cores, and anti-grav technology still remains in the realm of theoretical physics, all of which some of my vehicles utilize.

Still... What I am trying to convey in my work is what if the MLP world got a taste of these kinds of technology? Steampunk and cyberpunk alike. Aside from things like AJ saving her farm with this stuff whilist AC/DC plays. Lol

Thanks thanks Leo that means a lot that you like my style of steampunk. I just hope people will enjoy these machines and their uses in the MLP world. I wish I could release more stuff frequently but my drafting table is located in my office room which isn't air conditioned. And it has been unbearable in my neck of the woods. Run a weather report check for Los Angeles and find out, its pretty bad.

Either way I intend on releasing another steam/electric hybrid vehicle soon with six hydraulic legs and dual franco crosti boiler systems. With electric saw blades.

By the way Leo, off topic but I have had customers in my shop from all over the world this week because of a nearby model railway convention and a couple of them were Kiwi's! You guys really are a friendly bunch! Though none of them from the Christchurch area. I just thought I would mention it because it made me think of you.

Also Leo, I dont know if its fate, dumb luck, or Gods will but today this book which the locomotive type the Samson I designed is based on just so happened to find its way to our shop with a man willing to part with his railroad stuff. I paid him $20 for it before the actual store gets its hands on it and mark up the price. And minutes before this book was brought in I was showing my co-workers my drawing and they really got a kick out of. No one until now has ever stuck tank treads under a Climax locomotive.

Also the information in the book suggests quite a few of them served logging railroads in New Zealand.

Spoilered due to non-pony content.

Well... That escalated quickly. Remember that model railway convention I was telling you about my dear Leo? Well when I went there I ended up doing more work than have fun because while I was wearing my uniform my clients wouldn't leave me alone. Aaaaand I ended up buying a model logging railway... Yeah... And until that gets situated my drafting table will really be out of commission for another day or two.

But on the other hand it has given me an idea for an episode in which strange disturbances in the Sugar Pine woods have halted operations by the INCOM Lumber and Mining CO. (Owned by the Shores family) therefore they have sought help from Morning Star, Twilight Sparkle, and their friends to investigate. Little do they know a beast in the woods awaits them.

In in the process of clearing off my drafting table and I'm at another crossroads, I have lots of ideas so open development. I'm still preparing renderings and concept art for EQD which has taken up a good chunk of my time. but I want some more feedback on what you all may want. Even people new to following the project can suggest something, just be cool okey?

Reportin' in! Hmm, have you created any more original locations?
>> No. 125915

Good to know you're still around Leo.

As for original locations, I can absolutely confirm three. Two of which I havn't done renderings for yet. Theres the polluted, miserable, and corrupt Drakovian Republic. The lush mountain paradise known as the "Pendulum Valley". And the Pashabi desert wastelands and craggy mountain tops. I didn't want to say this just yet but each of those primary locations was inspired by the three planes of the afterlife based on Christian mythology. With the Republic obviously being Hell, the Pendulum Valley as heaven, and the Pashabi desert kingdom as Limbo. The major locations are essentially covered in that respect.

I can confirm the Shores Costal Estate and nearby Horeshoe Bay. I was going to rename it something Spanish, and base it off Santa Barbara California.

I can confirm another minor location would be the Sugar Pine Woods carefully used for lumber extraction.

I can also confirm additional restaurants in the Ponyville area and other minor places of interest. One of which will become the CMC's favorite hangout.

I know for a fact that Data Stream and CC&HS are busy with their course of study and Baggie Pack is wrapped up in computer problems. All this is understandable. But some more continuous feedback with the others would be nice.

You see the problem Leo is that I have so many ideas going on at the same time. I have tons of new characters to bring in. One such distinguished air marshall named "Lazarev" for the bad guys. Along with a whole back log of renderings I have to finish. One of which is Twilight and Serj locking horns in an iron foundry.

And many more. And I'm just trying to determine what everypony would like to see more of.....

Also.... The beign of hatred and rage will arise. I have been working on finalizing the primary antagonist... You guys wanna see?

Photography class is tougher than I thought it'd be. I have to do a lot of traveling to get a good shot, especially with a $40 quite off brand camera. Anything with even the slightest shade is a shot I have to throw out.

And of course English always has it own massive pile of work. Still, I really should check in more, even if I don't always feel up to it after working my way through the pile. I still need to discuss with you sometime some ideas for Data Stream, though I suppose it'd help if I got a DA account first.


Oh, and Lazarev looks exceptionally badass. I'll be looking forward to hearing more about him.

Photography is tricky, I took a course back in high school and I have to tell you Data that lighting is everything, just by getting the wrong angle can turn a potentially great shot into a bad one. Make sure the amount of light allowed into your lense is optimal and not too bright as well. Make sure to learn the proper shutter settings for your camera. As for english the hardest part I found was utilizing and citing reliable sources for research papers in MLA format. That alone can break a paper easily.

If you require any assistance or if you would like to discuss Data Stream you can email me at [email protected]

As for Lazarev, I dont know if you could tell but despite his second chance at life he does enjoy his 3-pack a day regiment of cigs. It helps keep him balanced, he has a much more passive attitude for a villain as well. He doesn't fly off the handle because of what happened to him. He started smoking after his "accident".

Also Data... Do you want to see what the PRIMARY antagonist looks like as well?...

Well, even with proper settings, there is only so much an off brand camera without optical zoom can do. But it's good for getting the basics down. I might be able to get a decent camera when my college money comes in. At the very least to get a camera that uses double a's instead of triple, as only have a single hour to take photos whether the camera is on or off bugs me.

As for Mr. final boss guy, maybe reveal a little about him, but not too much.

I might try and get an email sent your way sometime.

Well... I can reveal one small thing. This may seem odd but the primary anagonists life is based off a loose interpretation of "Schism" by Tool. A lot of things and story ideas are inspired by a lot of things here and there especially music. But more-so by the Lateralus album.

Schism:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtube_gdata_player&v=I1YM476Pa4o

And even the new character M.S. gets "Parabola" by Tool, which is almost a spot-on interpretation of his life too:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtube_gdata_player&v=EElaqhquY00

And "One" from Metallica

In regards to all that, the Lyrics "I know the pieces fit" in Schism are super important, It has to do with how the primary antagonist learns how elements of harmony combined can be used for "alternative purposes".

You came to the right place at the right time.

One thing that you will need for sure is a rectangular drawing surface like a desk or a table.

Then you will need a "T" square, its that wooden stick thats shaped like a pickaxe. The black end hugs the edge of your drawing surface and I guarentee other than your pencil this will be your most used tool out of all of them. You can pick one up at office depot.

For pencils I like to use the Staedtler Mars Lumograph pencils. You may not know this but pencils vary in hardness and softness. The harder the pencil the lighter line, the softer the darker line when you draw with them. Typically I use 4H pencils the most then I go back to darken my lines with HB (#2) or B and B2.

You will need a Staedtler Mars plastic eraser. Magic rubs are shit tier erasers. You will also need an eraser shield. Its an inexpensive stainless steel template used to only erase areas you fit in the template cutouts. A drafting brush will come in handy when disposing of eraser particles. But you can get away with using a new UNUSED 6" paint brush.

Also you will want a set of drafting triangles. They come in a set of 2, one 60° angle and one 45° and surprisingly these will be used for making straight 90° angles and can be mix and matched to make other angles.

An engineers scale would be useful if you are doing mechanical drawings but if not you can get away with using a ruler for measuring. Dont use measuring equipment for drawing straight lines, thats what your t-square and triangles are for.

For misc. stuff a piece of sandpaper to taper your pencil lead will be useful and Blue Scotch Painters tape (3M BRAND ONLY) for taping down the corners of your drawing paper will be useful. And you might want a set of "French Curves" to draw irregular round and/or organic shapes. For example that airplane on the thread starting pic, the "Fortunate Son" was done using french curves. Also get circle templates, Typically you only use a compass for circles that are 3" in diameter or more.

If you like I can build you a list of this stuff on Amazon or something.

Lazarev in his youth started off as a hot-headed gunship pilot in the Drakovian Air Force but sustained heavy injuries after being shot down in combat against Contingency forces. His left leg and left wing were replaced with bionic prosthetics so that he may maintain his career in the Air Force. Now 52, he has advanced to the rank of Air Marshal and has since lived a quiet life and enjoys his daily regiment of 6 packs of Manitoba brand cigarettes and a glass of scotch in the evening. He didn't start smoking until after his combat injuries.

Sov's notes: It's about time I finished something, the weather has been getting cooler thus allowing me to work in my office.

I'm still not ready to hire on assistants, not until I get the video trailer and the concept art done. (Concept art almost done btw) And what Leo means is he has been given special access to some "special" material in case something went horribly wrong and I cant continue the project, (A "Contingency" Plan if you will) as well as my friend Edskie who has been helping out behind the scenes along with some other very helpful folks on this forum.

Today's my day off and the weather is cool now so there's no excuse for me to get some shit done today, we'll see what happens.

Well, I was meaning more for the individual members as opposed to just Sovereign.

It's all one thing or the other, like for me it's college. Baggie Pack is apparently on the "building puters" side along with Knight/Florid for another example.

Twilight: "Have you been up here all day? We missed you at Applejacks family reunion.

M.S. "Hm..."

Twilight: "Her family really wanted to meet you in person. Especially after hearing about how you helped avert the foreclosure crisis about a month ago."

M.S.: "I just couldn't do it, the whole thing just brings back too many painful memories..."

Twilight: "You never really saw eye-to-eye with your family did you?"

M.S.: "They were very cold and uncaring, the only one who truly loved me was my sister... Until she got sick..."

Twilight: "And that was when you decided to leave home?"

M.S.: "I never looked back, I couldn't stand the sight of them..."

Twilight: "You couldn't stand the sight of your own parents? But they raised you, and fed you. All they wanted was your unconditional love in return."

M.S.: "Thats the problem Twilight, they are supposed to love you as well but they never showed it or expressed it. To them I might as well have never been born."

Twilight: "That's a terrible thing to say. You should be lucky you had parents period, I don't think you know this but Applejack's parents are...

M.S.: "Yes I heard about what happened to them and it is most unfortunate. It is just the way life works sometimes and you have to accept the hand you're dealt with. Either way she doesn't need them."

Twilight: "Now why would you say something so cruel? How could she NOT need her own mother and father?"

M.S.: "She doesn't need them because she has you. And Rarity, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, her wonderful family to love and support her when she is in need, its more than I've ever had..."

Twilight: "I understand..."

M.S.: "...Now if you dont mind Twilight I would like to be left alone..."

Twilight: "Alright... Sorry if I disturbed you..."

M.S.: "Twilight, theres a lot more to family than just flesh and blood. And its unfortunate when they cant always be there for you. Sometimes having good friends whom you can count on to love you is the only family one can ever need."

Twilight: "Hm... Before I go, what you said earlier about myself, and the others being there for Applejack. Does that include you?"

M.S.: "Yes..."

Bro again, that was unnecessary and as I said, I recognized the tripcode and her O.C. There's no need to be abrasive and frankly I find your conduct to be inappropriate on this board. So at this point I'm not interested in communicating with you any further.

Also I greatly appreciate your assistance outside of this board but unfortunately it will no longer be needed. Thank you very much and good day.

Hey Baggie Pack where U been? I missed you too!

I have been doing a lot of collaborating behind the scenes with Miss Ella and Miss Equine Palette with character development. By the way, Miss Equine Palette is absolutely the sweetest person ever and I just adore her. ^^ Plus Miss Ella is pretty awesome too! Her O.C. "Ella" and Mr. Lusha might have a unique and special relationship within the story!

Also, I elected Leo as my understudy, he has been granted access to special tactical information regarding this project. Should a sudden and tragic event take hold and I am no longer able to continue my duties, he will take charge. As well as my friend "Edskie" who will take over this thread in conjunction with Leo. You guys dont see much of Edskie but I know him IRL and he is very trustworthy.

The Drakovians are not well known for partaking in naval warfare due to the nature of their military structure and tactics. However high command decided if an Equestrian invasion was imminent, they needed a stable weapons platform to subdue Equestrian naval forces at sea. Therefore the Krait class heavy cruiser was devised to fulfill that role. It comes equipped with guided missiles and a particle cannon turret mounted on its bow. The Krait also features six directional fins on the port and starboard side to provide additional thrust in addition to its standard propulsion systems.

Sov's notes - Things have been getting stagnant lately due to a lot of internal and personal problems that have been ravaging my imagination and drive and finishing the concept art before November 23rd is quickly becoming a piped dream. I still hope I havn't lost the attention of my good friends due to this stagnation.
