[FoE] Manehattan by TheOmegaRidley [FoE] Manehattan by TheOmegaRidley
"...and if you look to your left, you'll see the very exotic and picturesque Manehattan Ruins. Now, as we..."

Yee-haw ! Manehattan, home of a lot of Steel Rangers, Balefire phoenixes and the one and only Tenpony tower ! I based myself upon some of the already drawn pics of the tower to draw it, and I'm not even sure if it was that close to the river...whatever. I DO WHAT I WANT. The city is one of the most iconic locations in the Equestrian Wasteland, and I really didn't want to mess this up. Whether or not I did, I sure enjoyed destroying the city and throwing rubble everywhere ! :meow:

I want to thank my good friend Tail27 for the help he provided regarding some of the buildings.
Constructive feedback is welcome, as always !

Next one...Hoofington (PH) or Route 52 (PE) ?

Great picture, especially since the Manehattan is recognizable from the depiction in episode one (with that horseshoe building).
But the first thing that came to my mind here wasn't Tenpony Tower but FO3's 'The Statesman Hotel' where the rangers are holed up on top (even looks like somebody rigged up a broadcasting array to send out a distress signal). Quite similar in my mind.
Again, great fallouty feel - you really do the Equestrian Wasteland justice.

Yup, I usually try to find as many references as I can before starting, and that building was one of the few things I was able to find for Manehattan. :p Thanks a lot !

I know it's called Tenpony Tower, a play on Tenpenny Tower. But to me that's where the similarity ends. I imagined it as more like a larger version of the Space Needle in Seattle. 

But this is still an awesome peace of artistic talent.

I usually try to combine the description from the story, the original location (if there ever was one), and the already existing drawings when I draw a wasteland settlement. But again, it's totally open to interpretation, that's the magic of books. :)

Wonderful ... yet lineart. The potentia lis great, but I think it could use adding to a next level to make it outstanding :)

Thanks, and yeah, I totally agree about my lineart, it's, in fact, so bad that I sometimes hesitate before starting a picture, wondering if the lineart won't ruin it in the end.
I'm currently working on it, the next picture should show up soon enough, and, while the Lineart isn't perfect yet, I can honestly say it's better than before. Again, thank you for pointing it out :)

The lineart isn't wrong, on the contrary, it's perfect, but it still is just a lineart drawing with some colors (I envy that); but this could be then edited and made as a normal full picture, by adding normal shading, lighting .. you know, that boring time-consuming stuff. That's what I meant :)

Oh, you mean...just the lineart ? That, I am not going to give up. I don't like to work without it...maybe someday, but not yet !

anttosik Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Still not unerstood my point - I mean it could be added ON TOP of that, not to draw without it :)  I can't draw even clean lineart atm.

So, uhm, first working with lineart then adding colors on top of it, so it would disappear, in fact ?

:iconanttosik:
anttosik Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Pretty much yes - but with the lineart showing you how to put the colors atop of it - where is the light touching the surface, where are the details etc.

I just stared in awe at the drawing for two minutes. God, it's amazing. I especially like the Tenpony design, even though I imagined it less Tenpenny-ish and more, well a blend of Tenpenny and the Luck 38. ^_^

The overall ambiance of Fallout Equestria feels more like Fallout 1/2/3 than New Vegas, more "deadly dark brown wasteland" than the good ol' Mojave,
And that's the magic of books, even though there is some kind of general ambiance established, imagination still rides the rainbow road of vague descriptions to create a different, more personal version of the world in your head. :)

Not completely sold on the Tenpony design, but regardless, this is still really good. Like, really. Perfectly captures that gloomy wasteland vibe.

But I'll pay more attention to the description next time, and I hope it'll be more like what you imagined. :)

This is fantastic - I absolutely love how it came out. It's a little dark (my main monitor displays it as a mostly-black canvas), but I'm amazed with the detail. Great work!

i always assumed the MAS tower was a tad further away from the other buildings *because of the ease of the building getting surrounded by slavers*
Reply
:iconawesomecow88:
awesomecow88 Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2013
remember that it was a few thousand Red Eye soldiers. So the whole surrounded thing was more of a if they get in its a last stand fight with most of the ponies inside having little if any combat experience

:iconleekface72:
Leekface72 Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2013
yeah but for the building to be surrounded by camps it would need space right? no be in-between two buildings... 

otherwise the picture is amazingly drawn/painted/digitally done

dud think about it its Manehatten as i just like NEw York so they would be camped out in the buildings on many levels for urban combat.

but in the book it said you could see the lights spreading out from Above, it doesn't matter much as everybody has their own version of the places in books and stories, it's the magic of a book.
Also i'm english so i don't really know what New york looks like much.
