I'll explain my scores first and then share some additional thoughts at the end. This is my first critique, so I hope you'll bear with ...


Gonna regret this, but here goes.

Since the next chapter is gonna take a while, I figured I'd break it up with a few character vectors. Fantasy/medieval-y outfits and armor specifically. I'd like 3 guinea pigs to start.

For those interested, what I need from you:

-one authoritative reference (name, CM, etc.) for the character you'd like to see all dressed up (in color, as exact as you can provide in terms of hue, saturation, and brightness)

-a reference for a pose for me to work from (preferably from the show)

-some ideas of what you want the armor to look like (but please give me the benefit of the doubt, and let me modify as I go)

-whatever patience you have; I haven't a clue how long each one will take

I reserve the right to say no to characters with really outlandish or over-elaborate looks. Just ponies, please.
Forever Stranger (10- Climb)
Sorry for delay, those of you who might've been waiting. This chapter is brought to you by the amazing cooking powers of uPop, the original walk-in microwave.
Ivory Thimble

Gift for :iconp-b-jay:. Below is her blurb for this chap:

"Ivory Thimble, fourth child of Written Script and Buttons, is promoted to a high-ranking position among the royal guard for Princess Celestia. His protective nature was born from his desire to always be near and protecting his family especially his mother. Now officially protecting and guarding those who need it, his mother couldn't be more proud of her baby boy."

All in all, a straightforward but fun variant of the golden boys' armor. Wasn't sure about the hinges connecting the plates at first, but now I think I'd like to keep them for all future designs where appropriate. Now to figure out a new way of representing chainmail.
Happy new year, peeps. Hope everyone's doing well. Bit behind lately, but I'm hoping to start posting things again next week. May also be taking offers from whoever wants a character to be my guinea pig for a new series of armor I'm tinkering with.
Sorry I couldn't do some sort of request giveaway or something special for the holidays. School just didn't leave enough room.

Wherever you guys are, whatever you're doing, I hope this finds you well. Stay warm, stay safe, and happy holidays.

Just your run of the mill pony vector maker, nothing special. Feedback means more to me than badges, watches, or faves. I DO read all my comments, even if I don't reply.

Request are currently closed, but I may post a journal indicating otherwise in the future.
I know everything I put out doesn't interest all of you. And that's fine with me if it does for you; just the way it works. But I gotta ask: if you could have me draw anything, what would it be?

Thanks for the heads up. Been kind of slow going, but I'm not too far from done.

Hey dude, i was having Thoughts on the next contest,
and i'm thinking we're going to have it be drawing villains for the knights this time around.

Got any villains that the knights could fight?

Hm, it hasn't come up before. But I had tinkered with an idea for a monster/villain a while back: a giant, old ram that lived under a mountain, a "king without subjects" sort.

Tell me more please.

Not much to tell, to be honest, man. I never even drew up a concept for him. Just a vague idea and design floating around. He lived/lives in the south somewhere, Appaloosan Mountains sort of area.

How have you been?
xenoneal Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2016
Doing alright. First time logged in since a while, come to think of it. What's up? Doing alright?
GeneralDurandal Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2016
I'm so slow at replying.
I had over 16 pages of replies.
The amount of backed up messaged is intimidating.

You forget you're talking to someone whose brain is late sending signals to his lungs to stop slacking off.

S'all good.  Happy holidays.  How've you been?
