'Iron Hoof' Straken by Sanity-X 'Iron Hoof' Straken by Sanity-X
While I was inking the Equestrian Guards I was working on, I decided to do a color test with good ol' Iron Hoof.

I'm still a little new at this style, so tell me what you think. ^_^

Is his cutie mark a mean looking shark running haphazardly around on wimpy legs?

Hah! Very good! I owe a Catachan Force and was looking around the gallery then I saw this drawing. Wow! This pony looks like Colonel "Iron Hand" Straken but in pony form! Missing his plasma pistol and the land shark skull that bit his leg off but overall a great colored drawing!

Fallout (the original) has a character who is a mutant with a red cybernetic eye. He works for the "Master" an enigmatic figure bent on forcing all viable people into a forced "evolution" into mutants themselves.

anyway In Fallout Equestria Red Eye is the name of the charismatic leader of the slaver empire centered in Fillydelphia (this part of the story is modeled after "The Pitt" DLC set in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania).

Their you go. I suggest you read it. But I know not everyone is interested in reading.

Step aside fillies, it's job for some Catachan Badass Pony! And about style now, I really like how you show the play of light and shadow on the metal, it looks depth and authentic.

Colonel "I-bit-a-frakking-land-shark's-throat-off-after-he-bit-my-arm-off" Straken is such a badass that he makes the combined might of Chuck Norris cry out for want of badassery.

Do Solar Marcharius next!

I didn't think it was worth posting up in Ponibooru since it's technically a WIP of a bigger project, but apparently it was worth it after all. ^_^

Gorgeous artwork, I particularly like his landshark cutie mark. Though that begs the question whether he had the mark before or after the miral landshark tore his limb of? That would be a...strange talent for a young colt to discover, I guess.
Anyway, it might be interesting to see how his foul motor-mouth would translate into MLP.

Sanity-X Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Professional Filmographer
Thanks! ^_^

I have two possible scenarios for his cutie mark:-

1) As a colt, he fought off a land shark and earned his cutie mark, which was a premonition of his future and brutal encounter with the one that'd change his life forever.

2) He had another cutie mark when he was a young colt, but the traumatic encounter with the land shark changed his life so much, his cutie mark was changed forever.

Iron Hoof looks like 10 tons of Bad ass in a 5 ton container. I'd hate be a xeno.
Oh crap. We are Xenos to them, aren't we?

He's not a freak, and he can take you any time!
He's killed dozens of people.
He doesn't have any mercy or anything.
He even kills little girls.
He doesn't have a home or people to care for.
He's not afraid of anything, men least of all.
He's fast and strong like a big wind.
He can hear a hundred miles, and see a hundred miles underwater.
He can hide in the shadow of a noon sun.
He can be right behind you, and you won't even know it til you're dead!
