Ain't no place for a hero by Fluffomaru Ain't no place for a hero by Fluffomaru
good christ I worked my ass off on this.

anyway, I've had this idea in my head ever since becoming a mod at #MLP-FiM
the mods are called the Royal Guard so I was like....lol Arctic Fluff as a Guard.
this was heavily inspired by *Equestria-Prevails artwork, also awesome music.

The knife is drawn off my hunting knife(I don't hunt, just like knives)
Music this was made too include:
This is War by: 30 seconds to Mars
Short Change Hero by: The Heavy
the entire album Living Things by: Linkin Park
Drawn on paper with a mechanical pencil, colored in MS paint with a little help from Gimp
w00t w00t

MLP(c)Hasbro
Arctic Fluff(c)*Fluffomaru

It is a big head-cannon thing. i will put all my head-cannon in a PDF text, using both images and text to world-build the FiM world. Ex: i will explain how i think that the royal guard works, how they fight, how they train, this sort of thing.

and i would use the images i get the permission of others to use to illustrate things.
for example your picture would be used to illustrate a type of royal guard.
and i would credit you of course.

Is this yet a base?
I will make it one if allowed.

most certainly not.
I've had enough of my art based at this point but even if I hadn't this is not allowed to be based.

I don't know... Thousand suns seemed to me like a better all around album then living things... the only song I really liked on living things was castle of glass... burn it down maybe...okay, and roads untraveled...

I never said living Things was better O.o
I just really loved it, I loved a thousands suns too I was just listening to living things when drawing this
Skin to Bone was my particular favorite but castle of glass and roads unraveled are next

Sorry.. I wasn't intending to question your taste, I was simply sharing my opinion...there's an old saying that opinions are like something else that everyone has but nobody wants pushed in their face..

Sorry, I really didn't mean it as anything other then a statement of my view point..

I'm not upset, I don't mind it exactly either it just seemed a strange comment on this picture is all.
since the view point was the character not so much a music statement.
but again, I don't mind it nor was I upset just a little surprised

just took a look at the comment stack on it and now I'm a little annoyed with her.
I suppose I won't bother to give my side of the argument to you though but I will say one thing, its her that wasn't listening not the group >>;;;

that's the best way to look at it really, though honestly I'm not sure why that picture was declined
looked fine to me -shrug-

still I do wish she wouldn't get so upset about how things are run in that group
there ARE reasons for it ><;;

I don't agree with her thoughts on vectors though, yes they are traces(at least some of them) but a lot of work goes into them
and of course if she thinks there is work in there that doesn't meet our standards she should tell us rather the whine about it <<;

again, shouldn't be saying this to you XD
just gets frustrating

Eh, I'm the resident therapist for all my friends. I have no issue taking on another patient ^^ (Especially seeing as how I'm training to be one)

I understand both your ways of looking at the vectors, I think her's is mostly because she's never worked on one. Which is understandable considering her kind of drawing style.

Also, she says it was declined because of quality or something like that.
Reply
:iconfluffomaru:
Fluffomaru Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013  Hobbyist
well I can kind of understand what she means about just straight up vector traces, but when they are used to make pony FC's its pretty much the same as using a base but with more precise lining and a harder way of doing it.
considering she doesn't seem to object to base work makes her a bit of hypocrite ^^;
but even the traces require an insane amount of work and we really only accept them because of that.
also, vector itself refers to the method the art is made and not specifically traces.

I know she said it was quality but I don't really get that, since it seems to meet the standard to me.
we've hired on a lot of new mods though so mistakes like that can happen and if she threw a fit and threatened to leave some of our mods will stop listening since we deal with that sort of crap far to often and its ...well, rather childish
when one of our members reacts that way its hard to really want to help them anymore.

on a side note, her suggestion to work out submissions like that other group is completely ridiculous.(that group has everything submitted to one folder and then the mods move it accordingly. that fine for some groups but for a group of our size its completely unreasonable to expect the mods to have to organize that many submissions when we are already worked to death)
I've explained to her why our group can't function that way and I had thought she understood but its clear to me now that she still thinks it would work.
which makes it ever more clear to me that she has no idea how a group of our size works
what really frustrates me about this sort of attitude is that our members throw a shit fit if we don't run the group exactly how THEY want.
when its us that have to do all the work, us that have to keep it organized.
they don't have the slightest idea how much time and work we put into this group.
they should appreciate it rather the get pissed the second something doesn't go their way.
we only have a quality standard to begin with, because we simply get to many submissions to ever hope of keeping it organized with some sort of limitations.
