Ante up... by The-LD Ante up... by The-LD
Inspired by that Bony Bastard of a Card Dealer that seems to give Black Jack terrible hands in Fallout Equestria. I only just finished Chapter 12 of Project Horizons, so don't spoil alot for me if you can help it, I'd totally appreciate it. I CANNOT escape this addiction...

though I would appreciate people chatting about FO: E with me since I can't seem to find anyone that's willing to converse about it. (So yah you caught me this is just as much as lure as an actual piece. I'm a horrible person I know > >...) Still happy with the way it turned out kinda. ALso hooray for random gradients :dummy:

Anyways Will I likely redo this later? Probably. Is it 4 AM? Yup. Have I gotten any sleep? Nope Do I have to get up in 4 hours> Eyup~

Kkat and Somber just wanted to leave my respects for you guys. You're awesome. Good night/morning

when he was the skeleton I used that voice. Now though I kind of imagine his voice being deeper still old but, not what I do for him anymore @3o funny how your image of a character changes the more you find out about them

I find that when I drop my voice and make it... gravely I end up with a solid snake sounding voice.

I have yet to read Project Horizons (haven't yet but will). And I have to say first thing that pops into mind seeing this is oddly enough, the song Remains of the day from Tim Burton's 'Corpse Bride'.

Ah yes...The Dealer is and continues to be an interesting, mysterious fellow.

I like the element of the poker chip stacks. They seem to signify how the Dealer/The Wasteland wins out over its inhabitants, espeically would-be heroes. The color palatte always works well. It invokes the same sort of dingy, decayed sense of hopelessness the Wasteland is rife with.

That's sort of what I was thinking, I also had him with the deck in his hoof to signify how he's "Holding all the cards" in a sense. At least as far as blackjack is concerned he's playing with a stacked deck too.

Youve got an realy interesting style! It realy works well to give the picture that post apocalyptic feelin! Also i realy like that youve put effort into making the blackjack images on the cards! Most ppl always rush drawin such details, i know cuz i tend to do such XD

Oh, and you are lookin for a person to discuss FO: E with ey? Well, feel free to spam my inbox cuz i too like to discuss this great fanfic! :D

Lol thank you, I was experimenting with my new pens when I did the initial sketch and then I liked it enough to do a full version. I'm glad you like it. I did this when I was supposed to be working on another project and couldn't leave it unfinished.

I was really tired throughout working on this piece though as you can probably have guessed by the comments

(I will totally hold you to that btw :lol:)

Nicely done, I can bet you'll probably draw the dealer again as you read further. I wish you luck with the read, it took me forever to finally catch up with the latest chapter ^^

Fortunately I'm up to the task! And thank you :)

I have a few other Fallout Equestria ideas I wanna get done, will probably do those relatively soon. Soon as things aren't so hectic

Up to chapter 12 in PH so far eh? Well the closest thing to a spoiler I'll give away is that this certainly won't be the last time The Dealer makes an appearance. :evilgrin:

Well that, and you may went to keep some anti-depressants handy. Its an awesome story, but it sure as hell doesn't pull any punches.

yeah loved the first one to death, Project Horizons is just as amazing tho, I'm finding myself taking more time to finish these than if I was playing the actual game. (also drunk blackjack)

I also had a feeling I wouldn't be seeing the last of that bony bastard..
