Pinkie and her crazy contraption Mark II by Starbolt-81 Pinkie and her crazy contraption Mark II by Starbolt-81
:iconpinkieshemadplz: :iconsaysplz: Lets see that mean ol' Gilda knock THIS baby outta the sky!

Finally, im back to doing something original! And man did this take ages! Not that im complaining, with the 2 weeks of no ponies its good to have a project :P

So anyway, with all the mane 6 getting the World of Warcraft treatment from me i was kinda stuck on Pinkie, since her randomness makes her hard to put into any kind of class.
However, one thing i could see Pinkie doing in the WoW universe would be taking up the Engineering profession, specifically, Gnomish Engineering. The vast array of crazy gadgets and devices and their tendency to backfire in the most random manner seemed fitting.

The idea for this piece has been kicking around in my head for a while now, after watching 'Griffon the brush-off' from season 1 this one time. Since Gilda trashed her first flying machine I figure Pinkie would be looking for an upgrade, so now shes gone and built a Turbo Charged Flying Machine :D

I love this flying mount. It was the sole reason i dumped leatherworking for engineering on my Hunter back in The Burning Crusade. Sketching and vectoring it turned out to be the most time consuming thing about this piece, but im stoked with the way it turned out.

P.S: The pair of goggles Pinkie is wearing are Agile Bio-Optic Killshades, another craftable piece of headgear from the Engineering profession.

The Turbo Charged Flying Machine Design is :iconblizzardplz:

Pinkie Pie is :iconhasbroplz: and :iconfyre-flye:

**Note** You can see a vector of the flying machine by itself here: [link]

I made a toon named Pinkamenapie. She has leatherworking (from the Cupcakes fanfic) and mining (from the rock farm). My engineers are Applejack(Gnome style, inspired from Team Fortress) and Discordpanda(Goblin style, randomness)

Is that Derpy as the Hula girl doll? Also are you going to put any other pony's in WoW armor? Maby something like Nightmare Moon/Luna as a Warlock. Or Celestia as a Paladin. Anyway cool pic man.

How can PinkiePie create technologically advances Equipment in a world where ponies do not use advanced technology in some fields, simple, no pony told her that she can not.

how does pinkie build all these crazy-contraption's i mean to me she doesn't look like a genius at all or maybe she is a genius maybe i'm just judging by how she looks and that she party's all day makes me think she's not that smart but maybe i'm wrong

this hit a special note with me cause i sued too play alot of WoW and ive always been an engineer. i loved all the cool gadgets that you got. belt shield,parachute cape,rocket boots,rocket launching gauntlets! oh man. that was fun. oh and the gnomish death ray MY FAV ITEM IN VANILLA! when 1k crits were kinda a big deal. the death ray could CRIT! i loved that so fucking much! and in the battleground how the items were useable (before the whole "oh you cant use these cause we are assholes haha: from blizzard). was a paladin myself,was just so much fun. oh and when i finally got my flying mount. MY GOD THAT WAS SWEET! flying in my own copter that i made with my OWN HANDS! that i got the materials myself. it felt good,much better when you flew past those "living" griffon mounts. pfft,you didnt raise it. no connection too it what so ever. oh and the grenades too! how fun was that throwing a stick of dynamite in some giant spiders face huh? oh and on occation having your very "useful" gadgets blow up in your face was always funny especially when it just outright kills you from full health. with your party just sitting there "did our tank just kill himself...WTF!?" xD oh man those were the DAYS! oh and the cries of "OMG DEATH RAY OP" was fun too...best profession in the game in my opinion. just too much potential.

I saw this on the drawfriend, and immediately thought: that ain't no ordinary flying machine!

Pinkie's class would always be in question - I used Shaman in WoP - but what no one could doubt is that she'd be an insane engineer. Shrinking the world, teleporters, transmogrifying oneself (by accident, of course), various robots and rockets, hilarious raid-wiping malfunctions... it's like there's a Pinkie shaped hole in the profession. And the old BC flying machine is so well done, too! It reminded me of back in the day, when I scrimped and saved to build one on my engineer. Those Burning Crusade days.
I also imagine she's wearing gnomish x-ray specs. Twilight: "But why? You know what we look like without clothes." Pinkie: "Because, Twilight. Because."

I like this very much, oh yes!

Wow. Just read "World of Ponycraft"- [link] (And yes, I know, not intended.)

And you nailed it without trying. (Pinkie's a shaman with engineering, silly people. She talks to rocks!)
