Life in Equestria shimmers Life in Equestria shines! And I know for absolute certain That everything is certainly fine~
yeah this is super sloppy and rips off like twelve other deviations you've probably seen before BUT
I had to draw Twilight. Because the new episode was SO. DAMN. GOOD. (spoilers!) It was sweet and funny and super cheesy but still genuine and OH MY GOD CELESTIA SINGS YOU GUYS. It was like a whole movie in 22 minutes. I loved every song ( okay maybe not the boring sad one) and then Twilight gets her wings cause she fixed pony gandalf's spell and now she is pony jesus and it's so CUTE
Was the finale rushed? Meh. Perhaps, but I think it gets the job done. No new villain? Yeah, but really guys, if there was one it'd probably be Sombra/Nightmare Moon v.2. Bleh. Were the princess dresses ugly as all sin? GOOD GOD YES.
Is Twilight a Mary Sue now? No. Seriously, guys. I'm calling misogyny on that. Just because a female character takes a level up in badass does not make her a Mary Sue. Twilight is still the smart purple ball of neuroses we all fell in love with. Except now she has weirdly proportioned wings. And dumb hair. ...You know who is a Mary Sue? Superman.
I've been rooting for a certain awkward purple unicorn since day one, and I for one welcome her as my new Alicorn Overlord. C'mon guys, hit me with those opinions!
Behold your ultimate overlords. Shower them with pagaentry and wubs.
Seriously, even if you hated the finale, how could you not be drowned in feels durring Celestia's Ballad? I knew the moment I heard it I needed to draw something. I also added in Luna and Cadance because I've wanted to draw a pic with all the princesses together for awhile.
Fair warning: If I see any anti Twilacorn comments, they'll be hidden. :>
Personal theory time: Celestia has just spent a ~millennium alone (I'm assuming Cadance aged normally here). That's got to be a little bit traumatizingly depressing. Then, in the span of a less than two decades (again, assumptions about pony lifespans being made) Cadence comes along, she gets her sister back and her student attains princess-hood.
Scroll over this sentence for my spoiler based thoughts. Edit: I was right! It was about pride in Twilight.
" You were mistaken, but I hope-not disappointed."
I wonder how much MLP fanart I can spam you all with before you hunt me down?
Anyway, this is another piece that ended up completely different from what wanted. I meant to paint an angry Celestia. Whoops. 200th deviation yay! My tablet pen battery died for you.
Although I probably draw Luna the most, I can begrudgingly admit that my favorite princess is probably Cadence. Wow. When I first saw her design I was like RAWR MARYSUE WHY DOES SHE HAVE WINGS PINK GIRLY MARKETING GIMMICK
But she makes the starry-eyed little girl in me go apeshit
Luna, however, is just plain cute. She's just so awkward and pretty and full of RAGE.
Oh! Oh! Everybody tell me who your favorite princess is and why. DO IT
also i painted Luna's mane with the help of this starry texture: [link]
gosh i draw luna so much it's almost like she's my favorite pony
she's like pony dream slenderman, no wonder everypony was scared shitless when nightmare moon came back. I bet she was up in their dreams like pony Freddy Krueger before she got punted to the moon
I experiment a lot with digital media, and while it usually results in soul crushing failure, this is an experiment that went... kinda right. I was trying to throw a show-style pony into a naturalistic painted background and then blend the pony in with gentle shading. And it sorta worked, I'll try it out again.
might scrap later, background is shamelessly ripped off from a photo
I wanted to draw both Princess Luna and Princess Celestia, so here's what I came up with. I struggled with the background because nothing seemed to quite fit the two - especially in this pose. So, I ended up doing something very simple. I figured Celestia is sort of supporting Luna while she is fulfilling her duty for the first time after the time she had been trapped in the moon. So, a simple night background. Hopefully, next time I'll make something a little bit more complex. It was fun adding in all the sparkles - I might have even over done it a little, maybe. :,D Hopefully you still like the picture!
I really feel like this song was trying to tell me something about my own life. it was like a subtle but strong reminder not to turn back now. [link] I got lazy with the stars, sorry Q.Q *hides* Celestia and Twilight (c) Hasbro n stuff~
An older Twilight. A leaner Twilight. A meaner Twilight.
Equestria stands at the precipice of disaster. Tensions are growing between ponies and dragons-especially since a well kept Equestrian secret was made public-how Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns gets its dragon eggs for its entrance exams. This reveal has given birth to a progressive group called Dragon Equality Now, a union of rogue ponies and dragons that have begun resorting to terrorist tactics to liberate enslaved baby dragons from pony society and win rights for dragons. If Celestia and Luna were to take action against this group, it would be seen by the dragons as an open declaration of war. Retaliation would be immediate.
Only Twilight, who isn't powerful enough to be considered a real threat by the dragons, is able to exercise her authority as a princess. She must find a final solution before her peaceful, harmonious Equestria is destroyed forever. --------------------
Just a concept for what an older Twilight could look like. Still not completely satisfied, I'll try again eventually, when my studies aren't killing me and I don't feel so ill
if you touch her cutie mark her wings light up and she sings
