I had to... I just had to... That scene was SCREAMING to be drawn!
So this is my vision of what would happen in the episode's intro if they were humans. I don't feel sorry for Rainbow Dash, after all, she DID break into Fluttershy's house and pulled the bed covers! D8
Oh, on a side note. I changed my human Pinkie's hairstyle. I noticed that none of them has a ponytail or anything of the sort, plus it doesn't look so weird anymore. XD
Spike's design for the "what if" story where Twilight Sparkle travels into an alternative and dark future. A little warning. This concept involves my favorite pairings: Rainbow x Fluttershy, Pinkie x Twilight and Applejack x Rarity. Thou have been warned!
I'm going to say what everyone is thinking; FINALLY!! '8D This piece took me longer than I expected, and then there were so many interruptions with other works. But what matters is that's done! TwT
Here's the usual, and final, summary regarding the character's background:
Spike was the first to notice Twilight's mysterious disappearance when the said girl was nowhere to be found in the Golden Oak Library and the same place was turned upside down as if someone had just stormed inside. The young dragon boy searched around the town for Twilight with Pinkie's help in the hopes that she was just dragged out by their friends or that she forgot to buy something. Unfortunately he couldn't find her anywhere, nor any of their friends knew where she was. Spike, concerned, decided to send an immediate letter to Princess Celestia about the strange situation and the Princess took action right way. She assembled searching teams to spread over Equestria in order to find the lost princess and Spike, along with Pinkie Pie and their friends, joined the search. Spike was determined to find Twilight even if he had to walk to the end of the world, because he knew that she would do the same for him. As the time goes by his friends gave up one after another, and when Rarity and Applejack prepared to leave the search Pinkie suggested that Spike would go with them. He was determined to continue but his body refused to obey and it was frustrating for him. Spike did as Pinkie told him and went back to their town with Rarity and Applejack, only to find out that it was under attack by the Changelings. He steps into the battle with his friends, Rarity, Applejack, Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash, and they manage to win the fight. However that wasn't the last and the most difficult yet. As the days passed the attacks became more frequent and Spike started training intensively to be able to protect his beloved friends. His training proved to be successful as his dragon abilities, such as the flames and strength, became quite powerful. Years went by after the fall of Canterlot, and even though many towns and cities have fallen under Chrysalis' power Ponyville was one of the few that remained strong against her. One of the main sources of power was Spike, now much older and matured. Thanks to his intensive training over the years he was now able to turn into a fully grown dragon and defend the town from the incoming armies of Changelings. His determination to protect his home and dear friends have been his motivation to keep getting stronger, he just wished Twilight was there with them, she would be able to figure out a way to regain the kingdom back. For Spike's surprise a part of his wish came true as Rainbow Dash came up with a plan to infiltrate the castle and ambush Chrysalis, by the looks of it it was flawless. Unfortunately when Spike, accompanied by his friends and some comrades, entered the castle they were caught in an ambush by the Changelings. Refusing to give up and be locked in a cell, Spike stepped into battle by turning in his grown dragon form and soon his friends followed him into the fight. Even though the best fighters were in that battle it seemed to be a lost cause as they were killed one after another, even Spike wasn't strong enough to hold those many attacks and his closest friends were getting terribly injured too. When he saw the awful state of the main five he somehow knew for sure that none of them would leave that place alive if they stayed there. So he turned to Pinkie Pie and Rarity and told them to lead the others out of the castle immediately. He fired his green flames at the Changelings so they couldn't get ay closer as his friends escaped. Then he slammed his gigantic body against the castle's crumbling walls with the objective of making the ceiling fall over them and vanquish the Changelings and their Queen. Spike was getting weak from the many wounds he was taking all at once but his resolve gave him one last bit of strength to accomplish his task and successfully destroying the main hall of the castle. Spike turned back to his human form moments after the whole place crumbled and with his vision blurred he tried to see if he had defeated the Changeling Queen. He didn't hear anything, there was absolute silence around him, and that made him smile. In his last breath he mumbled, "I did well, didn't I, Twilight...?" and lastly closed his eyes to finally get his rest after nine years of endless fights.
Well, that's all folks! Sorry if I broke your heart! D8
Rainbow Dash: Applejack, you arse! If I come out of this alive you're gonna get it!
Applejack: She's just giving ya a love bite, Rainbow~
Flutterbat... Ok, is Fluttershy the morphable pony of the main cast now or are the animators just testing how cute she can still be in other forms? Either way I love it. XD
At first I had planned to draw Applejack because, you know, apples for a cutie mark is a big target for a vampire fruit bat. XD But since the idea was used by several artists, and their ideas were so funny too, I wouldn't be drawing something completely new. So I decided to use another idea I had. While watching the episode I thought for a moment that Fluttershy was going to bite Rainbow Dash when she approached her (was I the only one who thought this? XD) so here's what could've happened.
Oh a colored comic, that's a first, and with ponies too. XD Not long ago I sketched a design for Twilight Sparkle and Pinkie Pie's daughter (yes I also did for my other favorite couple, dearu with it XD): Starchaser. And then this idea popped into my head.
Starchaser loves astronomy and studying like Twilight but she also has a inner "party side" of Pinkie which she represses frequently. However, when someone mentions a party her party mode immediately turns on. And how does one know? When parts of her mane and tail spike up. XD
So yeah... I'm a little shipper of AppleShy, as it's called. I didn't expect to escalate their relationship so quickly but I had a little help from my friend ~ChaoticYume XD
Don't get me wrong, Rainbow Dash x Fluttershy is and will always be my top favorite! No substitute! >8D I just like to experiment some other couples too once in a while (crazy, huh? welcome to my world XD). And Applejack is the only character, besides Rainbow, that fits Fluttershy.
Just a page of doodles I used to experiment new brushes I added in SAI. Was just to paint Applejack but I got carried away and painted everything. XD
Journey was kind of a surprise. I've seen art of it around here but had no idea what was the big deal. Then my brother bought it and I decided to give it a try. My goodness, the game is so beautiful, no wonder there's so much art of it. XD
Phew! I finally colored these! ''8D This was a sketch page I had done after watching the episode "Power Ponies" two weeks ago, but due to far more important works I had to leave the coloring for later.
So these are my takes on the main cast's outfits, and of course I couldn't resist to pair them up. XD I don't want to play favorites but Rarity has the best powers, having the power of imagination in your hands? Can I say best powers ever!! XD
I'm so sorry if I'm making spoilers for those who want to read the comic! 8D
I've been following My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comic books and I was astonished by last month's issue with Rarity's transformation into Nightmare Rarity. She looks even more fabulous, and WAY dangerous!
Obviously I couldn't resist to make my own version of her transformation as a human. And this whole setting is based on this page: [link]
