Title: Fanart General
Post by: Bob-dude on June 01, 2014, 08:57:31 pm
Thought it would be a good idea to have an open ended fanart thread of those of us who either don't produce enough Tales art for a thread of their own, or are anonymous and who's identity can't be located after all these years. 

Might as well start the thread off with some art of my own. http://bob-dude.deviantart.com/art/A-Round-Romance-Sumo-Starlight-457907793?ga_submit_new=10%253A1401648899

Good idea indeed, bobdude!

When I first saw the art, I wondered how I could have missed that. You published that only a brief time ago, didn't you? But on a different note, I thought they were working together against other couples, not going against EACH OTHER. 8. But it's nice to see a bit of Bons between the Stars stuff. Had a dream that alluded to it the other night.

Umrrrahhh.... It's... a.... Practice match before the tournament itself takes place? Sure, let's go with that! :P

And tell me... more about this dream of yours.

That's what I'd begun to figure, haha!

Well that is certainly different! Sumo wrestling ponies, huh? Interesting. :)

Well as you can no doubt tell from my DA page, I have a fondness for sumo women, as well as a fondness for ponies, so combining the two seemed really just a matter of practicality if nothing else.

Yeah, Teddy, that was pretty much my reaction at first. Not a big fan of this type of stuff, but I accept any and all Tales stuff, and bobdude's a pretty good writer with cool interpretations of the characters. So... yeah.

I figure if I can take 'out there' concepts and do them well enough that people who don't care for said concepts still wind up liking them anyways, then I'v done my job.

Precisely.

It's all good, Bob-dude! I'm not completely freaked out, so I guess that says something. ;)

True. Also, was wondering if you would give my first ever Tales ship fic a look at when you have the chance? http://talesmania.logotypes.se/index.php?topic=14.msg67#new

*Is reminded of the many PatchxBon Bon shipping fics that need to be written* ...Well, I've been a slacker lately...

It all just a matter of getting started and taking the initiative Notes, btw did you get my three part pm yesterday?

Yeah; just replying to my truckload of things to reply to. I haven't even gotten to my Private Messages on FanFiction.net yet!

https://derpibooru.org/483633?scope=scpe58a734ea8435087f7e1f8c3941b929e349717d02 Nice bit of fanart of Bon Bon, even if she isn't quite large enough for my liking ;) (in fairness, fanart of Bon Bon is never large enough for m liking ::).

https://derpibooru.org/483079?scope=scpe58a734ea8435087f7e1f8c3941b929e349717d02 Pretty cool cover of Bon Bon, Patch, and other Gen ponies in a hot air balloon, someone needs to write a fanfic based on this thing.

https://derpibooru.org/462083?scope=scpe58a734ea8435087f7e1f8c3941b929e349717d02 Cool comparison shot between G4 and Tales backgrounds

You know, I was actually the one who beefed up the number of Tales images from two hundred thirty something to three hundred by going through all of the character tags. Lots of G1 Bon Bon images weren't tagged with 'My Little Pony Tales,' so I set them. I had to go through the 'Bon Bon' tag with the 'Everything' filter so I could get everything... it was a time-consuming process in which I saw... R34. )80

I saw those images. I'd totally write that fic if I knew more about G3, and if I could dream up a good enough reason for them all to be together in the first place. I really like the backgrounds in both generations... and maybe you should make a picture of Bon Bon that's big enough for your taste. (Tales stuff is Tales stuff, compadre.)

I'm curious, is there anything Tales does that FIM doesn't in the art department? Yeah it's not the best studio that did it, but wasn't nearly as bad as the rest of the G1 cartoon. I've heard for instance the ponies' expressions can be rather nice.
Title: Re: Fanart General
Post by: Bob-dude on June 07, 2014, 04:58:41 pm
Well as I've mentioned before I always have found a number of the backgrounds to be quite colorful and detailed.
Title: Re: Fanart General
Post by: Notes on June 07, 2014, 05:06:55 pm
Yeah. Tales was edited by a pretty crummy studio, as TVTropes says... but the backgrounds and such were of a totally different flavor than FiM. In the art department, they of course made the Tales ponies more like real horses than FiM. And Tales was, obviously, hand-animated. It's amazing!
Title: Re: Fanart General
Post by: Bob-dude on June 07, 2014, 05:12:05 pm
Yeah, I've noticed that a few times with the voices (Bright Eyes voice coming out of Bon Bon's mouth for example). Still, the backgrounds certainly gave the show a  different certain charm to it that only handdrawn stuff seems to be able to do. Not to say that it's better than Flash animation mind you, just that's different.
Title: Re: Fanart General
Post by: Notes on June 07, 2014, 05:16:02 pm
Yep. They snuck in some pretty funny bits of dialogue in the crowd shots to make up for the wrong voices, though!

"Wow... he's so hot and munchy."

"Aww! What I wanted to tell Patch is that...""They're so soft?"

"Keep the rings away from the pole!"
Title: Re: Fanart General
Post by: Teddy on June 07, 2014, 06:36:04 pm
What?! What episodes are those quotes from, Notes? lol!!
Title: Re: Fanart General
Post by: Notes on June 07, 2014, 06:44:08 pm
"Hot and munchy" came from Sister of The Bride. Listening right past 4:09 will reveal it. It sounds like a Bon Bon quote, but it isn't Bon Bon saying it...

The Patch thing was an exchange between Bon Bon and Starlight during Up, Up and Away at the 1:24 point.

The line from Lord of the Rings was at 3:35 in Sister of the Bride.

Comedy GOLD in there, I tell you!

So, totally came across some interesting Tales fanart just doing a random Google search. Figured I'd share them here:

Oh no, they've morphed into G2's again!! (Some new DVD cover art apparently. Like the original G2 art wasn't bad enough.)

Not going to lie, I LOVE Sweetheart in the upper corner there! Very cute!
Title: Re: Fanart General
Post by: Notes on June 10, 2014, 06:07:55 pm
*jaw drop* In all of my hours of searching for Tales things, I have never seen the first art! I'll share the obscure stuff I've found once I'm done making a certain grand fanfic library for Tales...
Title: Re: Fanart General
Post by: Kat on June 10, 2014, 06:18:07 pm
No relation but clearly she's meant to be my BFF, haha! Drawing Ace and sharing my name! ;)

Love the art style of SH in that first one! So cute. Horse!Teddy looks awesome as well, I love his huge mane. And that expression!
Title: Re: Fanart General
Post by: Notes on June 10, 2014, 06:19:04 pm
The expression on horse Teddy's face IS priceless. XD

Post by: Teddy on June 10, 2014, 06:21:21 pm
Yes, Sweetheart is flippin' adorable in that first pic. Agreed! But sad horsey Teddy is so bizarre and random! But also kind of adorable the longer I look at him... ^-^
Title: Re: Fanart General
Post by: Bob-dude on June 10, 2014, 06:33:24 pm
Sad horsey Teddy is best Teddy.  ;D Also, thought I might as well share this pic, oddness of the subject matter aside I think it's pretty cute/heartwarming myself. https://derpibooru.org/23604?scope=scpeb8c429bdf8a7cffa027a181828669c687e347a26
Title: Re: Fanart General
Post by: Notes on June 10, 2014, 06:36:46 pm
Adorable until Sweetheart says what DragonMorpheus said. "You aren't the father, Teddy." That'd be priceless, but at the same time, I REALLY like their manes, and that would be improbable.

Darn it, I forgot to share my Tales dream! X0

Okay, so Bon Bon and Starlight were chillaxing in front of a brick wall in lawn chairs and generally having a nice summer day. Bon Bon was bored, and decided to rob the bank behind the brick wall. Starlight tried to tell her it was a bad idea, but Bon Bon didn't listen! She ended up going to rob the place, and eventually got caught by the cops, though not before she stole all of the money at the bank.

What happened was that she paid her bail with some of the money the stole and her family was rich forever.

The part that reminded me of Bons between the Stars was a part where Starlight threw herself against Bon Bon in a hug after she got out of jail and Bon Bon gave her this look. Starlight nuzzled her frame and probably noted that it was big. It seemed like it was fortelling Bons between the Stars in that universe.

I was only a month late in realizing that I missed that point. XD
