All aboard the LAMETRAIN! CHOO CHOO!
It couldn't be helped. I have been doing cross-fandom interpretations of Mulder and Scully since 1998. You know, back when the show was mega popular and they had cameos or references in a BUNCH of shows, like The Simpsons, Reboot, and one year of the Emmys, even. Those cameos told me this was okay! *sob* It's .. okaayyy...
..Meh. 'Sides, if they can have a (semi-)official Dr. Who crossover pony, I can have my X-Ponies. ..Right? Woo, sci-fi!
I guess fan OCs have to have a lot of thought put into cutie marks and how each pony got them, but I mean, like, what other symbols are there in The X-Files besides the two X's in those two fonts? Maybe an alien. SHOOT. SHOULDA DONE AN ALIEN. Dang. OR A UFO. GODDAMNIT. Oh well. Anyway-- and I actually put thought into this-- maybe they both got theirs at a late age, but if you've watched the show, you know those two have had nothing else going on in their lives besides their jobs, so I guess it seems fitting.
I'd like to take a sec to talk about the art I've been doing involving ponies and how I've been trying to imitate the art style in the show. I realized while working on this that even though the colors are flat, a lot of the appeal comes from the line weight, which I SUCK at. Adding line weight takes twice as long as my usual inking method, but in all honesty, it makes it fun. That said, I'm over the flat color thing. I want to add depth and shadows and all that! I'm seriously considering going back and doing so. We'll see.
I could comment about and criticize this to pieces, but this is already a long enough description, so I'll stop here.
