[Old 1930's style narration]

[/Old 1930's style narration]

When I saw these 3 in the Luna Eclipsed episode I knew I had to do something with them and what better than a 1930-40's era Sci-Fi like Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers.



Really happy with this one, the poses and expressions turned out better than I hoped and the basic background I was going to do just got better and better as I went along. My favorite of this piece for me has got to be Pluto's expression.

On the technical side I really derped. I was wondering why all my pics come out over-saturated even though they look fine in Photoshop. Turns out I've actually been doing everything in CMYK not RGB. Seems like the only real way I could fix the stuff I've already done in a reasonable time frame is to imbed a color profile into a jpg, so you get the correct colors now but a lower quality image, sorry.

Thanks! :) Not many people seem to like this one, almost never gets any favorites, which is a pity, out of all the things I did when I was vectoring this was my favorite. I suppose the fact that the colors are a bit wrong doesn't help. :shrug:

This is fantastic! I feel like you need a write friend to make this into a real story... I love 30's sci fi so much. You have no concept of how much I've read! :D

Actually, if no one else is doing this yet... You wouldn't mind if I borrowed completely ripped off this idea, would you?

And now, as a break from the mud slinging of no originality and other said unpleasantries, I leave my comment.

I love this image and the allusions it contains make it! I found it immensly entertaining to find The Dertateer in the background. The background on the whole has so much detail that it is tragic that most people won't take to time to look at it. Such attention of detail must have been very time consuming and difficult. This is truly a credit as to why I joined the pony fandom, your ability to use the fun ergonomic lines and simple color schemes to convey so much is breathtaking.

Thank you for your generous comments, its nice to know that people appreciate how much work actually went into the background. Backgrounds like this is also why a lot of my art takes ages to make, so unfortunately in an effort to speed things up, backgrounds like this will be a bit rarer in the future.

Also good catch on identifying the background pony, I was wondering how many people would be able to figure it out. :)

No originality what so ever. Ponies are easy to replicate, so easy in fact that anyone could do so. Why won't this stupid fandom die?

You could have just not clicked on the picture instead of coming here and trying to piss people off by making passive agressive remarks. I don't have any idea why you hate the fandom so much either. Why don't you explain that?

The fandom is far too exaggerated. I have watched the show and I do not see the attraction at all. The character design is simple and far too easy to replicated and maybe if the fandom would leave my fandoms alone I would not hate it so much.

So you're mad because of crossovers with Doctor Who?

You don't have to look at them you know.

Don't forget the dirigible spaceship with the sparkler in the rear. And the kaleidoscope for the opening credits.

And then the... dammit. Now I'm reminded of "Flesh Gordon" with Emperor Wang from PLanet Porno aiming a sex ray at Earth. XP It was a classic of the best of the worst in film.

Tell me your address so I can start to send all the Internets to you. All of them.

But seriously, aside from amazing arts (dat background! this pespective and scene set up!), the idea is quite awesome. Though, took me while (+ some googling) to figure it out fully since I'm not really familiar with many old american stuff people usually make references/parodies to (west EU here).

Yeah it is a bit obscure, truth be told I've actually only seen a little of both old series, but most people seem to recognize things like the ray gun and rocket as old Sci-Fi, which is what I was mainly going for.
