Fallout Pony Vegas by DanShive Fallout Pony Vegas by DanShive
Download for huge version (2550x3000)

"War. War never changes. Those talking pastel-colored ponies, however... they're new."

I shouldn't have to say this, but seriously: do NOT hold a gun with your mouth. No good can come from it.

I would make a joke about being a grown man who is a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, but I think half the internet (including myself) have done that already, so let's move on.

I was given Fallout: New Vegas and discovered the new MLP show around the same time, and while playing FO:NV with all of it's western themes, I found myself picturing Applejack as the courier.

The downed ponies are meant to be feral ghouls. I played fast and loose with their color scheme, however, for added contrast with the Mojave wasteland. That pony in the back is a Nightkin. Their cutie marks are the symbol for radioactive and a crescent moon with stars, respectively.

The gun Applejack is holding (in such a fashion that nobody should ever mimic) is the Lucky .357 magnum revolver. I chose it for its western appearance and distinct look, but I later realized it was even more appropriate that I thought given that the gun basically has its own cutie mark.

That said, I have no idea how she fires the darn thing.

EDIT: Some corrections, anti-aliased high-res version.

I swear, there is this creepy glitch in the real game that just gives me night mares.  Have chills from this comment. The creepy glitch in Fallout Vegas is that there is a person that talks to you in a chair. The creepy part s that the person starts rotating its head, sometimes until it is upside down. The creepier part of the glitch: he is floating in a sitting position, following you, except with it's head rotated in a creepy way. I saw that glitch and slept with the lights on for a week.

You know they say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well I can honestly say that this picture is worth 608,000 words and more because my god Fallout: Equestria is awesome!!! I was so excited when I learn that one of my favorite webcomic artist created a picture that inspired one of the best fanfics ever!
Thanks Dan and Kkat!

And yet Kkat didn't listen when she wrote Fallout Equestria.

It would be called "Fallout: New Pegasus" because Vegas in Equestria is Las Pegasus.

Well, damn. Kkat may have made FoE , but you? You inspired her . You more or less triggered the creation of what I believe to be one of the best modern stories ever written.

And you did this all with a picture. Not the best picture, but a good one nonetheless.

In short, you are now legendary in my opinion.

This is.. i can't even wrap my mind around this idiocy. you took a show made for little girls and mixed it in with a game franchise that's in a nuclear wasteland full of death and suffering. these two franchises literally have nothing in common.

Your not finding humor in the contrary juxtaposition within something I drew close to two years ago isn't particularly noteworthy. It's perfectly alright if you do not like it, but referring to it as idiocy is rude and as unnecessary as the second z in your screen name.

What, like a parade of lens flares? In all seriousness, based on an interview I read, it was more the questions this image raised regarding how Equestria and Fallout could be combined in a way that made sense and not something like Kkat being mesmerized by how glorious it was. It simply raised questions, and Kkat provided answers.

I mean no disrespect to your work. It was, of course, the crossover that fascinated Kkat. But still given the scope of Fo:E I was, perhaps unreasonably, expecting something a little more flashy visually. Not a parade of lens flare, but perhaps a wild west picture of Applejack in a ghost town with a lot more detail and a setting sun on the horizon. It's just not the style I was imagining, this is classic MLP 2D vector, I was thinking of a 3G like [link] or a painting style like [link]

Honestly, I don't see this picture affecting the ACTUAL video game itself. So please, for the love of god, stop bitching.

As of how she could operate the gun... I say if a pony's hooves can play the Violin and Piano.... I'd say the could shoot a gun.
