Pinkie's Smartgun


=== Description ===

In the season finale of the second season of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, you may have noticed the scene where Pinkie Pie wields Twilight Sparkle as if she was a machine gun to fight off the changelings disguised as their dopplegangers.

For some reason, the first thing that came to my mind (especially from the way she was holding Twilight) was the M56 "Smartgun" used by the Colonial Marines in Aliens.
When the connection between the term "smartgun" and everybody's favorite adorkable egghead pony clicked, I knew I had to get it drawn.

So yeah... watch out Xenoponies...
Pinkie is about to party hard...


Also, new possible alternate names for this weapon includes:

M56 "Egghead Rifle"
M56 "Adorkable Assault Gun"
M56 "Magical Support Weapon"
M56 "Unicorn Weapon System"
M56 "Faithful Student"


PS: Yeah... yeah... I know that "Rainbow Dash is best PFC Vasquez!" :D

"My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" and all related characters, designs, themes and logos belong to Hasbro and :iconfyre-flye:

"Aliens" and all related characters, designs, themes and logos belong to 20th Century Fox

~ JK


===Tools Used===

Adobe Photoshop CS5


===Art Notes===

This was a quick one-day work, which I used as an opportunity to dust off Photoshop and try some of CS5's new stuff, so I hope you're not expecting a work of art here.
Basically just the standard affair really. Initial draft followed by lineart, base colors and blending.
Because I borked the file settings at the start, the lineart is a lot darker and thicker than I intended it to be. There was also a background, which I removed at the last minute because I didn't like how it came out.
ll in all it was a lot of fun dropping an angry Pinkie Pie into a smart-gunners gear. :D

Lets Party!

Looks great.

Alien 2 rocks.

Many years ago someone modified Doom 2 and replaced the textures and sounds with alien 2 sounds.
That was my favorite doom 2 mod.

This is my Twilight. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My Twilight is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My Twilight, without me, is useless. Without my Twilight, I am useless. I must fire my Twilight true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will... My Twilight and myself know that what counts in this war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, or the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit... My Twilight is unicorned, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a friend. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel. I will keep myTiwilight clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will... Before Celestia, I swear this creed. My Twilight and myself are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until victory is Equestria's and there is no enemy, but peace!

I wish I could add more tags besides 'wow', like 'love' and 'joy' as well.

I was watching Aliens a Saturday morning, mixed in with MLP, and was thinking 'My Little Alien'. I ended up coming across this picture RIGHT AT THE SAME TIME AS THE SCENE IN THE FILM.

This is beyond win, uber-win, super-dimensional-fortress-win...

Thank you.

The funny thing? I only made this from the short little preview clip, I never knew the things they were fighting actually LOOKED like aliens. :)

Pinkie's Smartgun is now canon.

Haha! :D
Or like my friend mentioned, that Pinkie's "party" cannon is now a offensive weapon, making it canon as a "cannon" cannon... and if it was made by the printer company Canon it would be a canon Canon "cannon" cannon...

...yeah, we should probably stop eating paint chips...

im sooo sorry for this.....

THIS IS MY TWILIGHT
THERE ARE MANY LIKE HER
BUT THIS ONE IS MINE
TWILIGHT IS MY BEST FRIEND
SHE IS MY LIFE
I MUST MASTER HER AS I MASTER MY LIFE
WITHOUT ME MY TWILIGHT IS USELESS
WITHOUT MY TWILIGHT I AM USELESS
I MUST FIRE MY TWILIGHT TRUE
I MUST SHOOT STRAIGHTER THAN ANY PONY WHO IS TRYING TO BUCK ME
I MUST SHOOT THEM BEFORE THEY SHOOT ME
I WILL

MY TWILIGHT AND I KNOW THAT WHAT COUNTS AT THIS WEDDING
IS NOT THE MAGIC WE FIRE, THE NOISE OF OUR BURSTS, NOR THE SPARKLES WE MAKE
WE KNOW IT IS THE HITS THAT COUNT
WE WILL HIT

MY TWILIGHT IS A PONY, EVEN AS I, BECAUSE SHE IS MY LIFE
THUS, I WILL LEARN HER AS A SISTER
I WILL LEARN HER WEAKNESS, HER STRENGTH,
HER HOOVES, HER TAIL, HER MANE, AND HER HORN
I WILL KEEP MY TWILIGHT CLEAN AND READY, EVEN AS I AM CLEAN AND READY
WE WILL BECOME PART OF EACH OTHER
WE WILL

BEFORE CELESTIA I SWEAR THIS CREED
MY TWILIGHT AND MYSELF ARE THE DEFENDERS OF MY COUNTRY
WE ARE THE MASTERS OF OUR ENEMY
WE ARE THE SAVIORS OF MY LIFE
SO BE IT, UNTIL VICTORY IS EQUESTRIA'S AND THERE IS NO ENEMY
BUT PEACE
