FOE: Morality of property by Kalemon FOE: Morality of property by Kalemon
Matchstick and Shimmercoat from :iconsirleadhead: Fallout equestria fic Morality of property. The scene where Matchstick has a small realization about Shimmercoats shielding trick.

Nifty sidefic that people should read. Also Im sure this is full of canon errors... mostly this is yet again my personal depiction of the characters. Though Shimmerlight came out looking way too young. Kinda got impatient with this drawing since it has been sitting in my folder for quite some time so I just wanted to get it somewhat finished.

Yup. Feel free to rip this one apart.

I would like to kindly thank you. Thanks to your art I had the great pleasure to discover "Morality and Propery" - I think it's the best F:E sidestory that I've read since starting Project Horizons :D

And I'm SO happy for Matches! She's a fun character ;]

Heh... Glad to hear that. That has happened quite often to me too... I find a piece of fanart that leads me to a nifty story. Nice to know I've had the same effect on someone else. Yeah and definitely among the best of FoE sidefics.

What's important is the fact, that M&P is a very fun fic to read. For example Murky Number 7 is also a side story that I highly admire but there were moments where I struggled with boredom, had to take a break and REALLY force myself to continue afterwards. M&P? One evening and it was sadly over ^^

And yes I also experienced it a few times. Fanart/foto/frame -> new exciting story/book/movie/series/fandom ;]

AAAAAAAA!!! ohmygoodness I LOVE this! Little did you know that I saw this on my birthday! Thanks for the inadvertant birthday gift! Matchstick looks so adorable it hurts :D
And yeah, this scene was in a mall rather than a cave, but the rest you pretty much got spot on! I love it, thank you!

Well happy belated birthday then. Dunno where I got the cave bit from... I just form a mental image of characters and places very quickly and it is very hard to change them later on when I notice I've been wrong. But anyways... Thanks and glad you like it.

Simply awesome! Also my favourite scene so far in the story.

One nitpick though: This doesn't happen in a cave but in a derelict shopping mall.

Darnit... For some reason I had the idea that matchstick & co had their camp set in some cave. Ho well... I'm not the most perceptive reader and I didn't really check the details from the story while drawing this :/. Thank you for pointing that out.

Also, as the author so helpfully pointed out [link] Matchstick probably just gave away all her money for a single night. So, if she wants more Overcolt action, she'll have to join them. Yay!

Matchstick is doing a squee and Shimmercoat is trying to not get burned(in any definition of the word). OOOOO Thats right I just went there.

Very good looking picture. Matchstick's ecstatic expression is simply pure gold. Both character's poses convey motion and expression rather well.

Both characters stand off out of the background very strongly. At first, I wanted to nitpick some of the background, but looking at it more, it feels alright. It has that mysterious, murky quality like a cave probably should. perhaps the ground could be a bit more textured, but that's just really scrutinizing.

I also want to point out the lighting here, which you do a lot of nice things with; from the beams coming down from the holes in the cave to the glow put off by Match's flames and the more subtle one of Shimmer's Pipbuck. Overall, the picture feels pretty clean and crisp where it needs to be. Very good work. :)

Ehh... It would hardly be scrutinizing if you were to say something about he background.... Like usually I got lazy while drawing it. The characters do stand out but its mostly due to the style conflict with characters and background. I was going to ink the background but I got impatient... and the ground could indeed be more textured but thats still one of my weaker points. Flat ground is hard to make look like.... flat ground....

But thanks for bringing those things up. I appreciate any critique I get very much.
