I always keep coming back to this image. There's something about it that really captures the essence of her entire messed-up existence. I think it's the thousand-mile stare, her glazed eyes not fixed on anything in particular. It almost seems to tell the whole story without using any words at all.
Thanks. I liked the original pencil sketch myself too... (it was a shitty 4cm tall scribble done in a torn envelope) But looking at these old gimp+mouse things just make me cringe now D: Maybe I'll redo this someday in the future
If it is ok, I will use this for all my avatars on every account i have. This is an amazing pictures and Blackjack is an amazing pony. I feel this represents her in the best way possible. Thankyou for this amazing drawing.
Sure... Knock yourself out. No need to ask for such things, at least in my case. People are pretty free to use my stuff for such purposes if they want. I mean it would be nifty to find people using your stuff for their avatars and such.
Blackjack's character model is noticeably different from your average pony, even in her pre-cyborg form. Even though her limbs are of average thickness, she's plump, short-necked and short-horned. Her overall build is kind of like Ms. Cake's. Blackjack has this craven, hunched-over appearance that makes her look less like a pony and more like an overweight mall cop on all fours, pretending to be one. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Its the beer gut... or would that be whiskey gut? And would she really have one? I mean its not like she isn't getting lots of exerciser in her daily life.
Still, knowing Blackjack there's probable a demonic creature hiding in her tummy just waiting for come out and try and kill her and her friends as well as anypony unlucky enough to cross paths with it. After several days of tracking it down and ready to kill it, she'll end up taking pity on the thing and likely get blown up, shot, stabbed, set on fire, or exploded while on fire after being shot by a knife that stabbed her in the back because it was ironic.
