VectorMare by Great-5 VectorMare by Great-5
:new:11/14/2012
Over a hundred faves now! W00!!!

Now on Equestria Daily's Drawfriend #617! I honestly don't know how you EqD guys found this, but I am extremely grateful for this swell feature, and all the comments and faves I got just all of a sudden because of that. So thank you, EqD...you rock my world!

It's 2049 and Equestria's cities, forests and icecaps are fouled with toxic sludge. Ponykind has escaped to the stars, leaving mechanical "orbots" to clean up.

One powerful orbot, Raster, oversees the clean-up through a planetwide ComNet. Tragedy strikes when Discord, coming back a third time, uses his chaos magic to scramble Raster's master control circuits.

"WarHead" is born, and he stands for tyranny, hatred and oppression. By WarHead's decree, Equestria is forged into an instrument of death for the returning ponies.

VectorMare lands her space barge after delivering a load of sludge to the sun. Unhindered by evil mind control or Discord's magic, she will not rest until WarHead is defeated and Equestria is again free.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.
Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im sorry

I presume a romhack might be a possibility, but then again I think Vectorman isn't just composed of a single sprite, he is composed of lots of little ball sprites held together with code. So you'd also have to add new scripts to the game somehow, scripts that reshape Vectorman into a four-legged equine form, AS WELL AS include the new sprites to make Vectormare.

I find the shows voices to be too squeeky, and the stories not quite up to my taste. the characters themselves, and the art, are quite amusing, and a nice step off from reality and give me a chance to relax. they are cute, like kittens or puppies, so i keep art of them laying around on my hard drive.

the designs i quite enjoy. i espically like how i already said, the fact that you can "pony" just about everything. the unquiqe original art style is such that you can make distinct combinations of things, you know the source material, and you know the thing is MLP. i get an esp hearty chuckle when you combine excessively manly things (like halo, Spartans from the 300, or Wh40k) with ponies. the dichotomy between the two subjects is so damn far it becomes hilarious.

Nothing wrong with only liking some aspects of a given show...it's not the most common way to be a fan, but it's also not uncommon either. There are a handful of shows, games, etc. that I only like some parts of, like say, character design. I personally think the ponies' voices are adorable and beautiful, but to each his own. Anyways, how big is your MLP art folder on your hard drive? Mine is well over a gigabyte in size last time I checked, with thousands of images I've been collecting since August 2011. I am currently in the process of re-organizing my MLP images, like sorting them according to character and subject matter so I can actually FIND them in my collection. But it's a *huge* project, and I'm not even close to being done.

And yes, ponies DO go with just about anything. You kinda have to be careful about ponifying non-pony characters or mentioning MLP out of context when there are non-bronies around, I've found, because you can inadvertently start flamewars with people who often bitch and moan about how "ponies are everywhere" nowadays (well it's kinda true,) or how mentioning MLP in a non-MLP setting is somehow taboo, despite the fact that you can mention pretty much any other series out of context. I find it to be a stupid and annoying double standard, but sometimes it's best followed to avoid being trolled.

And as for the "ponies crossed over with manly things" thing, I LOVE that sort of fanart. I am a big Ponyhammer fan, because I got really big into Warhammer 40,000 about a year after I became a brony (although I have been casually into 40K since I was a lot younger, just it was mid-2012 that I really started to get into the game.) Now granted, I mostly play Dawn of War instead of the actual tabletop game, but I do have a box of half-painted Orks and Ultramarines that I never use, but intend to someday. Although Ideally I WILL learn the tabletop game rules eventually because in the next year or two, my friend and I plan on using his 3D modeling skills and his 3D printer to build a custom army based on my original sci-fi universe, which he is also a fan of. We're modeling that army, and the role of each of its units, off of the Blood Angels space marine chapter, so it will be easy to play tabletop wargames just using the Warhammer codex.

eh, just a few reaction images, about a hundred twenty items. tops. i save them to cheer me up, and i use them to annoy people on forums. when they get buttmad, throwing in an adorable pony telling them to not get so mad is hilarious. i actually can give you an example.

nothing puts ice on "SUPER SRRS RP GAIS" then throwing MLP ships at people xD

ps, this is a really coool game and you should check that out.

but again, i find ponies an amusing afterthought or "thing on the side" and dont really delve into it. something about it just doesnt mesh with me at that level. still an amusing distraction none the less

Yeah people can get surprisingly butthurt over goddamn PONIES...they're often like "god damn it ponies ruin everything, BAAAAW!!!111!oneleven" It's especially apparent in the Warhammer 40K fandom, which I am involved in as well as MLP...supposedly "true" Warhammer fans need to hate MLP and bitch and whine about how ponies are "heresy" or something retarded like that. It's pretty sad actually, to see how much drama such harmless-looking colorful horses can cause.

Well that's what you get when you have someone like me who grew up a Sega kid during the early-mid 90s, owned both Vectorman games (though I didn't beat 2 until early 2000) and during his adulthood discovered MLP and became a brony. So I thought to combine one of my childhood interests with one of my current ones, and the result is what you see here.

Btw, I greatly appreciate the comment and fave coming from someone who can actually draw...I seem to be cursed with having a good portion or most of my commenters, favers and watchers having sparse galleries only containing either art created using a generator (like Pony Creator or Pimp My Gun) or worse yet, just pictures they didn't draw themselves and just found on Google Images, or completely empty galleries. It actually kinda feels like an insult, as the artists who can draw at my level, or above or slightly below my skill level never seem to talk to me. I seem to be a magnet for nobodies...*sigh*

Well it's a really great picture :)
Really impressive redesign and still totally screams of vectorman.

Now I can't help but to wonder how other classic game characters would look in pony form, like:
Dynamite Headdy, Ristar, Alien Soldier, Shatterhand, Strider, Metalstorm, etc :)

Yeah exactly...

Awesome, I'm glad I succeeded in recreating the Vectorman "look." I suppose this could be one of his morphs! That is, if Vectorman was a brony...

Oooh, Alien Soldier! I love that game! I was actually working on a modern redesign of Epsilon Eagle (the protagonist) back in December, it had nothing to do with ponies though. Now I may want to draw Epsilon as a pony, or perhaps a gryphon. Metal Storm was another great game, though I was never able to beat it.

Yeah metalstorm gets a bit tricky towards the end.
Really love the NES and Megadrive, they're the two main systems I collect for :)

They have so many platformers and run'n'gun games that you can collect :D
Power Blade was another goodie, loved the soundtrack throughout that one as much as Shatterhand.

The Megadrive (or Genesis here in the States) is one of my absolute favorite consoles ever made, and my definite favorite retro home console. I like it more than the SNES, a lot more, even if the SNES was more technically advanced. I happen to love the sound of FM synthesis, which is one of the main reasons I love the Genesis and its YM2612 sound chip. Also, its less-advanced graphics capabilities when compared to the SNES made it all the more impressive when a game came around that pushed the system's hardware to its absolute limits. Treasure was famous for doing this with Alien Soldier and Gunstar Heroes (two of my absolute favorite Genesis games,) which is why they are one of my favorite retro developers.

Well of course the Megadrive/Genesis is but one of my many favorite consoles...my favorite 3D consoles are the N64 and the Xbox 360 (though I wasn't a big fan of the original Xbox, Halo being the only series starting on original Xbox that I enjoyed back then, even if it IS my favorite modern game franchise and the main reason we're an Xbox household now,) but back to retro 2D platforms, I am also a big fan of the Amiga as well as old PCs with MS-DOS, Windows 3.1 and Windows 95. There were some great computer games back in the time period from the late-80s through the mid-90s.

Yeah the MD soundchip is just superb.
I often hear people complain about it having poor sound quality,
but they obviously haven't listened to Ristar's soundtrack and stuff like "Transparent Obstacles" from the Gauntlet 4 soundtrack.

I too wasn't a big fan of the SNES whatsoever, the sound quality is too muffled but it does suit well for more orchestral soundtracks,
while the MD/Genny is more fitted for rock'ish or techno/trance'ish soundtracks (Vectorman, Combat Cars, Batman and Robin, etc).

It's also good because the restricted amount of colors on screen at once made the developers use interesting color combinations.
The SNES didn't have as limited on-screen colors, so the graphics often became washed out and messy because there wasn't enough contrast.

Overall I find the SNES to be more of a console for RPG enthusiasts while MD is more for platformers and shooters (more to my liking).
I also have a Amiga A600 which I play some good ol' "Global Gladiators" and "Ruff 'n' Tumble" on now and then.

Well, bear in mind I grew up playing Vectorman...I knew most of the backstory, I actually watched the intros, so of course I'd know that Warhead was originally called Raster. Also, did you know that the name "Raster" comes from "raster graphics," the opposite of vector graphics? So it makes sense that Vectorman's arch enemy would be Raster-something.

I never even knew they made EWJ for the Sega CD. I never even knew the Sega CD even existed when I was a kid...I never saw any commercials for it, so yeah. But I don't think I was missing much, given the Angry Video Game Nerd's review of the system. I did hear about the Sega Saturn though, although by the late 90s I had outgrown Sega and moved on to Nintendo, when I got an N64 for my tenth birthday. But now I love both Sega and Nintendo, although nowadays I mostly play Xbox and PC games. But my PC game library includes old Sega, NES and SNES games on emulator.

Nope, you're not the only one.

I know, right? I demand more Vectorman games! But Blue Sky is no more, and has been no more for years now, so sadly it doesn't look like ol' V-Man will get a third game. But man ,they really messed up for the cancelled PS2 game...they made Vectorman look like a Master Chief ripoff, and completely forgot the very thing that made him so appealing in the first place: the fact that he's supposed to be made out of floating green spheres!

Thanks. I had fun throwing it together, and coloring it. I had no idea it would get a feature on EqD...I guess even the bronies have a nice taste for nostalgic games. I know I do.
