Hired Grump by MisterMech Hired Grump by MisterMech
Wanted to try more FOE: Heroes work eventually and can't recall seeing a depiction of the scarred up side of Silver's face. I'm sorry if it looks kind of like a weird splatter.

If she seems rather stallion-ish, that was completely intentional.



FOE -> Kkat
Heroes -> ~No-1ne

It looks fantastic!
You caught pretty much all the detail of the picture, from her pose, expression, color, and all. You crafted the robot leg of hers so well, right down to the little wire. Great job!

Aw shucks *^_^* thanks alot! I'm so glad you're pleased! It was both challenging and fun to figure out how to sculpt those cybernetic parts! I've got a bunch more FO:E on my list so keep watching for more :D

I am telepathically transmitting you some serious kudos for actually making her look as strong as she is. It's very tempting for pony artists to just go with the standard proportions.

So I've been admiring your blackjack work for a while and then I saw this. I knew once I finished Project horizons to date I'd have to start Heroes. I have to say, I can't Imagine her looking any other way. This is (in my opinion) the de facto go-to Image for Silver. You sir, are an amazing artist.

IMHO this is the best depiction of Hired yet. No one else managed to convey the sheer size and "subtlety" of Silver Storm as much you did.

As much as I love the drawing itself though, it would have benefited immensely from a little touching up after the scan. It's very pale and blurred. Just look how a little application of the Auto-Levels tool and a sharpness filter can make the drawing shine:

Thank you for the feedback. The original intent was to try some new techniques and brushes out on her and it was originally going to be part of a larger, more complete picture. Just something to play around with mood and whatnot. I agree that the example you provided looks really good and probably would have worked better for a stand alone character picture like this. :)

If you've played Fallout, the fact that her strength stat is 11 should say a lot.

If you have not, the highest the strength stat is normally able to go is 10.

Except Fallout Tactics where you can have stats above 10 increased artificially (drugs or power armor) or as race trait (Mutants, Deathclaws). So it can work since she have that thanks to cybernetic.

This is bucking perfect.

I've said it before; you're one of the only artists that truly does Silver Storm any justice at all. Sure, the scar on her face looks a bit like a ketchup smear, but the rest? You, sir. You NAILED it. Completely nailed it.

The bulk, the frown, the primitive nature of her cybernetics... You managed to pull off Silver Storm perfectly, and damn you MisterMech, but you STILL managed to make her look oddly attractive without doing a disservice to the way her image is portrayed in Fallout Equestria Heroes.

I must say that I am in love with this drawing. This just makes me want to kiss her at the tip of her muzzle and tell her not to be such a grumpy grumpypants.

You deserve all the praise we can heap upon you, sir.

My my. Hulk Pony!

I actually really like that splatter, it reminds me of what I've seem from those news reports on acid burn victims or whenever I saw an unfortunate burned person during my work at the hospital. So that really seems right! Of course, I don't know what was meant to have caused it (Still reading Heroes, writing my own story saps SO MUCH time o.o)

The exposed wires and joints on the legs are really pretty cool, gives them this lovely rustic feel and offers an intriguing offset from her huge other arm. If anything, it really helps highlight that while bionics are cool and all...it just can't ever properly match your own flesh and blood. I actually feel a little sad for her here.

PRINCESSES RAINING VAGINAS 0__0 !

You can't even imagine how much I waited for Silver Storm drawing with so much details. Now here it is.... and it's GLORIOUS!

I never read Heroes but I always had a thing for SS, just because how she was described; now it's official, I have a crush on her :love: . Why can't we see more muscular mares in actual show >:( ?!

(Well, Babs Seed might become one....)

Blackjack: Heya, Pal. Nice body you have there :3.

SS: Excuse me, I'm a mare.

Blackjack: 0__0

You mean that you cut out your penis?

SS: NO YOU MORON, I WAS BORN A MARE.

Everybody says "Splash or Splatter" for the scar work--------Think about it! A shotgun to the face is just that, "spray" damage! You did just fine! Your rendition of Silver is really good. She is big, and the grumpy type of introspection always plastered on her face!

I love this art. I think this image truly captures Hired Gun.

You really show just how big this mare is, you have a knack for drawing particularly large or muscular ponies and can still pull off skinny ones too Mech. The amount of detail is gorgeous, the hoof size, the mane colours and best of all her scarred face and eyepatch covered cybereye. I enjoy the grumpy expression you've given her, it's ideal and suits her personality.

Hired really is one of my favourite protagonists. Despite all that she's been through, she never receives the same kind of recognition that Littlepip, Blackjack, Puppysmiles or other notable wastelanders get. That is actually part of her charm too, she's trying to do what is best for both herself and for those she cares for, but doesn't aim to change the world, rather her own small part of the world.
