Malte279's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Welcome to my Deviantart page :)
My name is Malte, though many call me Mike since Malte turns out to be tricky to pronounce to most native English speakers.
While I got a deviantart account back in 2007 it has been only after my "joining the herd" that I became more active on here and started posting new art more regularly.
I'm somewhat versatile when it comes to art and very much enjoy trying out various forms of art (vectors, soapstone carvings, origami scenes etc.).
I'm also extremely interested in history and turned this interest into a profession by teaching history (and English) at "Volkshochschulen" (education centers for adults).
Please feel heartily invited to look around and comment on my art (constructive criticism is always very welcome and helps me to improve future projects).
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask :)


Cloud Trotter
This is another non player character from our Equestria pen and paper role playing game. After the somewhat dramatic events which tore my character Leafhelm out of the group (for the time being since it was my turn to act as the game master Wink/Razz), the rest of the group (the earthpony Graystan, the pegasus Windseeker, the unicorn Shockfire and the dragon Empyria) arrived at Cloudsdale.
On the ground below Cloudsdale they met Cloud Trotter, a pretty unicorn mare who had a fascination for pegasi. With our game set just a few decades after the union of the tribe and the first Hearth's Warming opinions among some ponies remain divided about the members of the other tribes. Therefore it was considered a great step that Cloudsdale had recently been opened to "wingless tourists" (after it had already been opened to griffon merchants).
This opening was made possible by the character here, Cloud Trotter, who is a master (and possibly the inventor) of the cloud walking spell which Twilight used in the series to allow for Pinkie Pie, Applejack and herself to go to Cloudsdale (S1 E16). Tourists after they got the spell (which would last for about three days before it would gradually wear off) were to climb a cloud which pegasi had brought to the ground and which they would then push upwards like a little shuttle bus to Cloudsdale.

It was a lot of fun to describe a Cloudsdale which was opening up to the world and undergoing a lot of changes as a consequence. For example Solid doors with a doorhandle (doorhoofle?) were a bit of novelty in a town where pegasi had been used to just leave openings in their cloud homes or simply walk through the walls. In parts of the town planks or tiles of stone had been given the cloud walking spell (which in the canon of the game lasts a lot longer on lifeless matter than on a pony) and put onto the clouds for the benefit of the wingless visitors (and also to prevent any items which had not been given the spell to fall right through the clouds if dropped).

Cloud Trotter played a minor role in the following adventure in Cloudsdale. Her role could have been bigger, but the player characters took more interest in some other characters and also most of the adventure took place in the clouds (much to the chagrin of earthpony Graystan who distrusts both, magic and flying) while Cloud Trotter remained on her post below Cloudsdale for most of the adventure.

EDIT: The background is not my work. It is part of a screenshot from the episode "Campfire Tales" (S7 E16).
I would like to help iSeppe :iconiseppe: spreading the word about a contest she has organized and into which she has put a lot of time, effort and (looking at the prizes) money. There will be 10 winners of prizes which include core-membership, points and art by her.
The task is to draw images of her OC and the deadline is on Sunday, November 19th. I will probably be unable to participate myself because I got so many other deadline projects on my hands right now, but at least I would like to spread the word for a contest that I think deserves a lot of participation :)

Here are the details about the contest.
