...My Leap of Faith... by Acesential ...My Leap of Faith... by Acesential
Made this in Paint Tool SAI and Photoshop CS3 quickly, in about two hours.

I had to draw this. After reading the latest Fallout: Equestria chapter, chapter 44, I really felt that I needed to draw this.

The character of Littlepip has gone through so much. A lot of pain and suffering. Now, everything is coming together; all that she's done is now falling into place. And yet, she has to sacrifice, one more time...

Really, not many stories touch me as deeply as Fallout: Equestria has. Kkat, you have written an amazing story. I hope to see the sunshine and rainbows Pinkie Pie talked about. For everyone, but for Littlepip especially.

Seeing as though I've been following Fo:E for Celestia knows how long, this picture really says more than any words could. Bravo.

Thank you! I was originally wondering if I should make it more interesting with a different angle or whatever, but I finally settled that the sacrifice that LittlePip was making was more important than anything else. As a result, I focused more on the emotional aspect of the scene (the tears, the fire consuming her, the faint smile) than anything else.

It was really a touching, bittersweet ending. Nice job capturing it so amazingly well. Fitting picture to the easily the most amazing fanfiction I've ever read.

I really love this, it the facial expression really brought tears to my eyes!
Fallout Equestria was cruel, bloody and often disgusting, but it was one of the most beatiful storys i've ever read, and your Picture reflects so many of the good things of the story!

Thanks! I'm glad you like it!

Yeah, after reading Chapter 44, I was feeling restless due to it's ending. I made this drawing to get that feeling off my chest.

It's probably one of the rare occasions in my life where my emotions have forced me to art.

Looks pretty good!
Perhaps something a little more in the background, rather than just a flat color. You may also want to get a little green lighting on LittlePip, something that I forgot to do myself. Adding a slight transparency to the flames might also be a good idea.

Otherwise, it looks great! Her reaction is much more true to form to the story than mine is. Awesomely done, glue!

This captures the emotions of the scene amazingly...I'm going to miss the chapter updates when this fanfic ends.

I'm not sure I've read another story that gets you as attached to the characters as FoE.

Littlepip: "After a long journey it has finally come to a climax. Fighting all of those hard battles, overcoming impossible odds, and being the best pony I can be. I may not be a saint, but I did the best I could.

I am Littlepip of Stable 2. And I will die knowing I am a hero."

Chapter 44, the most intense and emotion filled chapter up to this point, also there's a 100% chance it's gonna be the second last chapter, there is no doubt in my end the chapter 45 will be the end of it all.

Lil'pip has seen many painful things in the months shes been out in the wasteland. Kkat indeed, you did amazing writing. It's pictures like these that further pull on fans and make us see the beauty of powerful moments.
Ace, thank you for making this rendition of it. I'll be waiting well for Chapter 45 as I'm sure all of us who follow the main story will.
Powerful piece..very powerful.

To Kkat:

I'm very happy that you like it! This was a very powerful moment in the story, Littlepip's leap of faith. That final moment really touched me, to the point that I needed to draw it. Littlepip is a true hero, through and through.

Once again, thank you for making such a wonderful story.

I won't lie, I completely cheated with making the effect. I simply took a picture online of fire and knocked out the red channel. I used a low opacity brush to add a little green here and there, and erase part of the fire picture overlaying LittlePip's head.

It would honestly look so much better if I spent more time on it. Still, I'm happy with how it came out, overall.

I really enjoy your drawings of some of FO:E's key moments, and I wouldn't really call my drawing very accurate. I was gunning more for the emotional compared to the actual :V

I'd very much like to see your depiction of the event!

I've always wondered myself; if presented with a choice between preserving my life or sacrificing myself for the sake of others, would I take the latter? And, if I did, would I have any regrets by doing so?

It's one of those questions that keeps you up at night :U
