Here's a fun fact: Rainbow is the first non-augmented steampunk pony I've drawn. That machine on her back and wings isn't permanently connected to her, she's simply test-flying a new one of Twilight's contraptions while her old pal Fluttershy, the best animal-augmenter in all of Ponyville, cheers her on (and hopes the thing won't explode... again).

I figured in this universe Fluttershy's knack for helping animals would be expressed in helping them recover from major injury, which entails also augmenting them with whichever limb or organ might be missing. So she's more of a mixed mechanic and doctor than simply a caretaker. Of course some animals don't exactly like company when they're in extreme pain so she's seen her share of maulings, hence her lack of one eye and the tough leather-armour under the light, soft shirt she usually wears.

And of course Rainbow's hooves are cracked and unkept... Because she doesn't like ponies touching them! : D

You should probably check the help-page as your primary solution, but if you hover your mouse over your avatar on your front-page, a tiny pencil-icon should pop up in the corner, allowing you to change it.

No, she just wear protection on it for taking care of various birds of prey, for instance >w<

Yup, she takes care of all the critters she can, just like in the show >w<
If they get injured, she'll cure or augment them. That's what she does, regardless of species.

I would.

When I first joined dA in search of ponies, you were my first contact. The first artist that spoke to me. It was a great feeling.

Back then I didn't know what a 'watch' was. I faved Wicked Nosedive and moved along.

Recently, I remembered you had an answer for how RD got her colors (it came up in conversation) and decided to look you up. Wandered through your gallery again...

These steampunk ponies are really amazing... I've been trekking through dA for over a year and I can honestly say I haven't seen anything like them.

Kind words are important to a newb and I see you have no shortage of those words.
But you're way too modest dude.

Indeed, you do rock.

And for your edumacation a year later

Omg, I remember that! Ooohh, now THAT looks awesome, I'm already getting inspired OwO

Also, asdfghj, I'm just happy I could give you a nice welcome here to DA, malice and unfriendliness seem to flourish on the web, but I try to counterpoint it with a little bit of kindness, it's so important in the world.

I do have a bit of a problem with being too modest, I've been told, but compliments are just so hard to react to when you personally see your drawings as average and really nothing out of the ordinary, just... y'know, the stuff you draw TwT

If nothing else, it always brings me joy when they manage to enrich the life of someone else, even in the slightest way, so I just wanna thank -you- for giving them a chance and taking a little time out of your day to look at them >w<

And never forget, you rock too. Kind words are usually wasted if they don't reach a kind heart : )

I should have looked at that website more carefully. I forgot Giger is big on Copyright and doesn't care that much for people to see his stuff without paying first. Pretty much all I have seen of him was through his books and posters and precious little of him on the net.

His style is unique and people using his style are easy to find.

Fair enough, that, I think it's pretty understandable, if you manage to amass the sort of fame he's achieved... His work looks amazing from what I can see of it, though >w<

Pffft, probably as long as it took me before I saw someone using them XD They're wondrous things, though, that spice up many a comment >w<

This occupies that strange borderland between really cute and really disturbing.
Great quality and the broad subject matter leans to cute, but the implication that's Fluttershy's been repeatedly dismembered provides the disturbing.

Fgsfds, thank you! >w< I actually always put in a slightly disturbing element, (mostly subconsciously, I think) probably because my brain can't handle too much cute in one picture ^^''
I do hope Fluttershy's slightly roughed-up past doesn't break the deal for you, but this is just a slightly more violent and realistic universe than the normal MLP >w<

no no no, a chainsaw will never work, it creates much too much noise, he'll hear it a mile away, I recommend something much better, a hacksaw comes to mind, silent, yet still full of jagged teeth.

Sweet Celestia, their Cutie Marks... :D This is awesome. The detail in the machinery is spectacular. I love Fluttershy's bionic eye. The backstories you put in the blurbs make every picture a heck of a lot more than 20% cooler. I could see a really great fanfic coming out of this stuff, or even a movie. Even just a mental one.
