Dungeons and Mares by Elosande Dungeons and Mares by Elosande
So I've been trying to get some digital practice in for a time, since I've gotten into this show I couldn't resist playing around with this. I tried to keep as on-model as I could for the characters but I went off-model for the background for the sake of experimentation.

At first I thought the show had very basic, flat backgrounds but quickly learned that was not the case. Those background artists deserve some respect and I have a lot to learn.

My Little Pony property Hasbro.
character designs developed by Lauren Faust.
this illustration is my work.

Can I use this as a fan fiction cover? I'll give you credit and a link back to here. Please?

You wouldn't be the first to use it. If "Ponies Play D&D" could, then they probably won't mind you using it too.

Is that a warning that it wouldn't be original (and I should go with bard Pinkie image instead) or that it's a tried and true method?

Hey, i'm going to be running a pony themed RPG channel on Youtube starting later this week baring technical setbacks. I was wondering if it would be possible to use this image as the base a channel header? Provided you were okay with that, of course.

PINKIE PIE: "Hoody hoo! I'm doing my victory dance!"
APPLE JACK: "How many XPs was that sucker worth?"
RAINBOW DASH: "This reminds me of the time we lynched that davenport!"

RD: I whirlwind around the Manticore!
AJ: I jump awn its back an' roll fer grapple!
Pinkie: I BOUNCE TEEHEE Do I have to roll for that?
Fluttershy: You guys really should wait, heh...
Rarity: But DARLING! Did you SEE what it did to my mane?!


And so the party vanquished the Manticore with kindness and one very lucky natural 20. xD

Haha this is awesome! And you're right, the background artists are SO talented!
I am still getting used to DnD especially when I have the newest gen rulebook and playing with a gen 1 DM XD
Things got out of hand when someone was riding a pony. Many cartoon horses were scrawled on the map >w>

If I were to be able to ever get knowledge of monster stats and etc. I would love to make FiM enemies for DnD!

Ha ha, yeah mounts can get crazy sometimes-especially when the GM loves to make bad things happen if you forget them.

I think they have monster handbooks available... maybe look 'em up on Amazon.

I've actually had this bouncing around in my head for a while... what would the mane cast play?

Sofar I've got-
Twilight- Human Wizard (It's got the biggest bag of magic tricks out there)
Rainbow- Elf Monk (Natural increase to speed, + Monks get alot of fancy acrobatic maneuvers)
Applejack- Goliath Fighter (Big, tough, stubborn, and doesn't need any of your fancy magics!)
Rarity- Deva Psion (be a race that all about being divine, and then move stuff with your mind)
Pinkie Pie- Halfling Bard (Halflings are the closest thing I could come up with for a "silly" race, and bards are the life of the party!)
Fluttershy- Half Elf Ardent (A race that gets along with everyone, and a class that's an empath and doesn't have to fight to boot!)

Course, I'm basing this on my knowledge of 4.0, it isn't terribly obvious what they are playing from here :)

Is this what they would probably be, or what they would play if given the chance?

It's a little of both actually, I haven't really decided myself.

:iconelosande:
Elosande Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2011
Gotcha. I could see RD more as a fighter to twink out with gear/feats and Rarity more of a rogue for the social skils. Your suggestions could work just as well though.
Reply
:icondfodder:
DFodder Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2011
Yeah, I hear ya. Part of me had party balance in mind, so I always thought Rainbow would really be more of a dex-based class, and I just can't see Rarity backstabbing people, because then she is risking getting blood on her shiny new armor :P
Reply
:iconelosande:
Elosande Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2011
RD could probably twink out a monk somehow too, and Rarity could be a social rogue, more involved with forgery, crafting, bluffing and slight of hand instead of actively stabbing people.

Re-replying!

Sorry, came up with more ammunition for rarity as Psion after browsing PH3.

Psion gets not only telekinesis, but an array of nifty abilities that mess with peoples heads(AKA; Hit yourself in the face, or hit your friend in the face! Because you would do anything for me, right?!)

After reading them, i couldn't help but think of Rarity's masterful mental manipulation in "A Dog and Pony Show"

Double bonus! Charisma is an important stat for that build, so have fun shooting your bluff and diplomacy through the roof!

Elosande Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2011
My apologies for the late reply. Rarity doesn't seem the type who would manipulate other's minds, but it would make her a LOT more persuasive... so I guess a double-edged sword.
