Sol Combatant by NCMares Sol Combatant by NCMares

Do try to steer clear of my path, captain.


--

Download to get a look at all the small details!

You guys have got to check out :iconamarynceus: Fear Naught but Dread Luna! Seriously, the amount of detail he packed in there is nuts. Outstanding work. ^^ We had to post the sister ships together, of course.

Celestia has arrived to save the day. She's not modeled on any ship in particular, but I was rolling with 'heavy cruiser' in mind.
Man, this one was tough and took a long while. Celestia is difficult enough to draw on her own, let alone all perspective-y. :ohnoes:

I received really great advice along the way, however, so thank you guys for all the help. For all the absurdity these are so very fun to draw. I got to telling people that this is what happens when you tell me to draw whatever I want. :dummy: Yo, it's creative, and I am a sucker for creativity. I am this close to going all-out with the worldbuilding and lore for these ship-pons, but Night Mares has got to be concluded before I take on something new. All in due time, right? :)

Do airships count as ships? BTW is it ok if I do Chryssi as a ship?

i wonder if these pony ship mixes came to be because someone misunderstood the concept of "pony shipping"

Kind of suprised Celestia got stuck with being a heavy cruiser. You'd think she'd be a battle wagon (Luna is. Not sure for Cadance. And Twilight and Celestia could argue over who would get Yamato (most powerful battleship ever built.)

Just a thought though. Great view though.

Cruiser? Uhm... I'd definitely say that is a super-dreadnought. Her, uh, tonnage would suggest that (Celestia, please don't kill me for saying that, you are perfect! D: ) she is in a class of her own.

Equestrian Navy is undefeatable.

Going back and comparing this with your first Kantai Pone , I can't believe how much you've improved. The shading and lighting is awesome in this one. Plus the perspective and dramatic framing (leaving a good part of the giant pone out of frame) just make this perfect. Great work!


Btw, who's that tiny pony on the bottom right? Must be a great view from there. *cough* I am suddenly very envious of her. ;P
Except her mane is blowing in the wrong direction, but who cares? Maybe the winds blowing over the ship's edge created a whirl? Those things happen.

NCMares Featured By Owner May 8, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you! I'm very glad you think I'm making headway. :) That's Roseluck, and I thought her mane would be flowing that way due to the forward motion of that ship she is one. Or perhaps that's a different breeze than the one way up there. ^^;

Of course! HMS Celestia is simply so big that her mane flows in the intercontinental jetstreams. Those blow in totally different directions. How could I miss that!  :)

Good! ^^ If there is one thing I love to see it is people taking a risk and really letting their creativity flow. Everyone draws cute ponies being cute and that's great! I love it as much as the next guy and it's a big part of why ponies appeal to a lot of us. But I also want to show people that it is OK to take that risk and let one's imagination run wild and just have some fun. :)

Obviously not everyone will like something or think it's downright dumb, but that is the risk aspect at work. It sometimes takes guts to draw whatever one wants! :dummy:
