Quick draw requests from last night multi stream. I needed to practice faces with a bit more emotion than I’ve been doing. It was fun, and did it in Sketchbook, which made this so much easier than Photoshop.
For 1,000 followers, I wanted to do something a little different. Again. And while watching some speedruns, I got inspired.
So I drew this. My part of it took 12 hours, 9 sketches, and about 60 layers altogether. It’s based on the Megaman 9 stage select screen, though it’s not traced. This thing was made from scratch, pixel by pixel. The ponies were then drawn in a heavily pixellated style using the pencil tool in Gimp for the rough edges.
Sweetiebot Mod pitched in once my part was done, getting the animation to work. Imagine that. A working GIF. On this blog.
So, the recommended boss order (and incidentally, also a list of followers featured):
Start with your basic Love Buster and take on askchangeling (Tryp) first.
Snag the Resin Arrow from him, then go after jestre.
Jestre’s Changeling Fire will give you a boost as you take on ask-banana-split next.
After that, head to ask-princess-moe-lestia’s stage. She might be an adult, but she’s got a filly-sized weakness for Banana Split Bombs.
From there, ask-filly-hysteria is easy pickings, as she can’t resist Moe-lestia’s Adorable Decree. You also pick up an improvement for your flight abilities.
Head for the quarry next, occupied by maud-answers. Hysteria’s Random Splasher can bust through any rock.
Next up is asksweetiebot. Maud’s Super Hoof can cripple even the most sturdy robot sentient organic life form chassis.
Finally, go after goaskbuttonmash. He’s got a soft spot for the Dulcet Shock, and the Homing Propeller is well worth the wait.
