Herr von Gothik, das kleine Pferd aus Maahnenheim by AaronMk Herr von Gothik, das kleine Pferd aus Maahnenheim by AaronMk
Sien Kaiserein ist bestein Kaiserein.
Intended title, because dA doesn't like umlauts: Herr von Gothik, das kleine Pferd aus Mähnenheim

So yea, entry for day 9 of EQD's ATG2. Which is to draw a pony from a vidya gaem or some other media. And sitting back I realized something: "I don't play many fucking games".

Really, I don't. At least nothing that's going to be done a hundred times over, or has been done a hundred times over. Sure, I could ponify a TF2 character or dress a canon pony as one, but I can predict that'll be done a bit much. Additionally, there's probably gonna be several Portal-themed ponies, and maybe equally so for Zelda. And I'd venture to hazard a guess someone's going to dare to do COD/Battlefield.

However, I don't think anyone's going to do anything like Total War! Sure, probably as generic as fuck. But that and Crusader Kings are some of the games I've been playing a lot of besides TF2.

So as such, a pony dressed in German, Gothic styled plate armor. I tried to blend the human and horse styles of said armor but in the end the man-style won out. Though some remnants of Gothic Barding remain, particularly on the chest and in the shoulders. Also the fore-head having room for a horn, the decoration around it being mimicked off of a set of Gothic barding I was looking at while doing this. And of course the ears.

Also that crest in the background is a parody of the Holy Roman Empire's imperial banner. I feel I need to do the whole thing in full some day.

Maybe.

Not neccesarily Gothic though, I did draw Luna and Celestia in Prussian and Imperial German clothes.

Sir, you're a fucking genious. Specially by using the gothic armor, and because the Holy Roman Empire is best kingdom on the game :3

The second one.

I played the first some but that was a long time ago. And I don't own it, so that makes playing it difficult.

Maybe.

I'll need to install it on my laptop. And then figure out if it'll make it over-heat or not like many of my games and what I need to keep it cool. There's also the bit where I'm doing more with Crusader Kings 2 than Total War. So, eh. Maybe.

I love Gothic Plate Armor. :D And I love the Total War series and I'm a bit of a history buff. There is much to love here for me.

Good concept behind this and the dramatic lighting pays off creating a mood for the piece. The design looks a little assymetrical, but it doesn't detract very much. Nice touch with the HRE's crest

Well all things considered, I can't think of many models of European armor where it was blatantly assymetical. Though I could have posed him differently to cut the illusion. But, ah well.

And thanks. I'm considering drawing the crest itself at some future point because I found it fun to re-draw. For now though I should consider getting this day's theme started/finished.

On the subject of the art, he looks a tad uneven to me, is all. Good, but noticably uneven.

Coincidentally, I drew a video-game themed pony today.

Mähnenheim, it was supposed to be a play on Mannhiem, Germany.
