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

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

Kudos on using Applejack here; she's my second favorite pony, her adorable little sister being the first

Ah, before that fanfic ruined the Fallout community.

Man you inspire kkat, you're awesome!

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

And to think you sir made this probably long before Fallout: Equestria had even been thought of and because of that I commemorate you. :D

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.
TvenSnake Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2014  Student
Totally agree with you, this man created a legend!
chupathingy98 Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Indeed... small beginnings, I suppose.

First i was like, Okaaay People like a show for younger kids... Then there was Fluttershy who attacked that dragon or something and now people think she is Dragonborn and she can slay Alduin or Dragons which is wrong, Then i was kinda annoyed and NOW Mlp Fallout? Im done! I dont want to live on this planet anymore!

Have your ponies, I dont care anymore....

If anyone has a space ship please tell me

You have a lot of it you need to get over.

Given when I uploaded this, you should have blasted off into space nearly two years ago.

Sorry just my opinion, I am just done with this mlp stuff
crazzyguy77 Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
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.

Two words fallout equestria look up the audio book. On YouTube watch just the introduction and prologue then say this again

DanShive Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013
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.

i half want to see what a ponified wersion of boone would look like, and half don't.

I don't know why, but I feel like this picture needs Pinkie Pie...

My mind is a scary place to inhabit.

Admittedly I was expecting more when Kkat described the picture that inspired her epic work.
DanShive Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012
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.
BaliBriant Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013  Student Photographer
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.

This is terrible.

You've been credited as inspiration for KKat's Fallout Equestria huge fanfiction. [link]

Maybe she pulls the trigger with her tongue?

Makes me wonder what Cass' would look like as a pony...
And that's a bit disturbing.

Still disturbing, but funny nonetheless

THANKYOU for being the thing that inspired Fallout Equestria!
TamH70 Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2012
If this ruins Fallout for you then you are obviously too easily influenced to have ever left childhood. Get over yourselves you idiots.

Piss off back to No Mutants Allowed.( For that is exactly the same shit fans of Fallout 3 have to deal with from those fricking weans in that den of iniquity. )

Call me a faggot, go ahead. Please. I have a long list of famous ones that could kick your arse seven days a week and twice on sundays just waiting to be posted.
Jin-Ghi-Lives Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2012
I don't get all the hate, i mean its not as if the fallout fanbase is any better, they've got furries and some unscrupulous fellows i'll not mention. MLP added its own and has grown amazingly well, lore wise fo:e has a lot of good.
