These are sketches I painted for a story which I developed in my mind when I found Zenith ([link]) by the amazing David Larsen.
It's about Spike looking for an ancient artifact called "Touch of the Sun", "Zenith of the Sun" or simply "Zenith" which is supposed to have a great healing powers, but it was lost during the Griffin wars. With this item he wants to heal Twilight, who have fallen in some kind of coma. When he learns about the Zenith, he tells Celestia, but because she won't let him go on this quest for some reason and she orders him to stay in the Canterlot, he must leave through sewers and then he goes to the borders of Griffin kingdom, where he wants to find some clues. Only thing that gives him hope is Twilight's tiara, which is also supposed to unlock the Zenith. (He took it when he left and he would talk to it during his quest, hoping that Twilight could hear him.) After few events and escapes from the royal guard, which was send by Celestia, he arrives. But he's not prepared and he is defeated by the greate mountains. He would die if not a handful of griffins who took him to their village and took care of him. (Here is a griffin girl who found him: [link] ) When he recovers he returns to his quest and thanks to griffins, he knows where to go, but with every step he realises why Celestia wanted to stop him. She knows very well that there are things which are better to be forgotten. After some time and few events (And one sailing adventure! Yarrrgh!) he finally finds the Zenith . But he also finds a very old secret.

Hey look, MLP fanart. So I tried a whole new style for this one. Is okay?
I've always thought of Lunas mane and tail to really be just filters for the world around her, eliminating all physical obstruction to see the night sky no matter where she is. Through the clouds, through the ground, she always has a clear image of the stars.
(This is why I have Orion right there in her hair.)
From on high, the gods make sport of the mortals who toil below them. None know the cruelty of these beings better than Twilight Sparkle, a beautiful magician who was torn away from her friends by the godsí divine hands. Granted immortality, Twilight Sparkle now whiles away her days in an inescapable miniature garden for the amusement of the gods, particularly Celestia. But the gods themselves are no strangers to the boredom of eternal life, and as Twilight Sparkle quickly discovers, they will do anything to keep themselves entertained, both at her expense and at one anotherís.
I read this manga called "Olimpos" a while ago, its quite philosophical and a bit hard to understand but I felt like Twilight and Celestia could easily be transfered onto Ganymede and Apollo. Luna could easily be either Hades or Artemis, and Fausticorn would easily replace Zeus. After all the rumours about Twilight becoming an Alicorn herself, it feels like its even more fitting.
Edit: Wow!! I've gotten so many incredibly kind and encouraging comments on this picture. I will try reply to as many as possible but in the mean time I just want to say thank you to everyone for taking the time to leave a comment. It really makes my day time and again. I love you all.
Yup! Pre-Canterlot Equestria? Thats my concept of The Ancient castle of the Royal sisters or whatever it was called This idea hit me when I was re-watching FiM pilot for no parent reason whatsoever. I'm guessing Everfree forest wasn't that big back then or the ruins were actually on the other side of it. It was just my silly guessing. I will be very unhappy if they show this castle fully intact in season 4. Lots of happy colours in this one. Even my *.psd file was actually named colorfulland!
You know this place, don't you? Giant oak, Twi's residence. Just a peaceful quiet night in Ponyville, enjoy the moment. I made it specially for the 1st episode of MLP: Online singleplayer. Check and [link] where you can download game beta. Everything is free.
Thanks for your attention to my humble art, and for 1000+ faves for ponyart without a single pony! That really flatters me, and i owe you more for that. You'll get it in october, after i handle my education duties. Hugs!
