Blackjack, Ante Up! by CalamityB31 Blackjack, Ante Up! by CalamityB31
Yay! Now, Before anypony worries, no this isn't the last painting Ah'm doing of Blackjack. Ah love BJ, and Ah still have a long way to go in the story, so lots and lots of juicy opportunities await ^^/)

Okay, now basically, that is exactly how I imagined that Bony Horse Hallucination. (ah know, my imagination needs a boost) -> Anyway, since tomorrow is Friday (work), ah didn't really have enough time for a background. And, Ah am glad Ah didn't. Ah kinda like it the way it is. All in her mind

I don't know why, but Blackjack reminds me of Neo from the "Matrix" in that picture.

Blackjack: Guns. Lots of guns.

Glorious is not a word that applies to me, I'm afraid. You, on the other hand, have undoubtedly earned that mantle. Thank you for this work, and for all of your work; it is truly exceptional.

That is truly an awe inspiring sight. I enjoy a lot of FOE related art, but this one is unique in a difficult to discribe way. I think another poster said it best, that this drawing has a sort of weight. It also captures the mood extremly well.
Cool Blackjack with the all the misery of the wasteland on her shoulders is best pony.

One thing I just noticed though. How the hell do these shades stay on? They aren't pince-nezes and there doesn't seem to be an earpiece. Or are they just so cool that gravity dares not mess with them?

I love it. I just frikkin' love it. The lighting is just amazing, dynamic. BJ reminds me of Tom Cruise before he went all weird lol
I can't see anyway that this would've come out as good as it is if you had stuck to using vectors.
