So Discord is back for good this time. My fangirl vibes are screaming for Discord/Celestia. XD
I liked this episode so much and couldn't avoid drawing a few thoughts I had while watching it. First; I didn't buy the "let's reform Discord and use his magic for good" from Celestia, so I made a rough sketch of what was the real reason behind all that. Second; seriously that introduction with the ponies wondering where Flutterhy and Applejack were... my shipper mind trailed far and because I kind of ship Applejack and Fluttershy XD And third; Fluttershy and Discord being friends? Why the heck not~
Phew! Almost thought I couldn't make it. I've been working on this since last Saturday. '8D
Some people complained saying this episode was a disappointment or weak. Honestly it exceeded my expectations, even with the fact of Twilight turning into a princess. She deserves it, no doubt. When I think this series can't surprise me anymore it proves me wrong. XD And this has got to be the best episode portraiting true friendship in my opinion. I even got emotional and cried during the most part of the episode. The song "True, true friend" was so powerful and inspiring. It is by far my favorite song of the entire series and I really had to make a drawing to show the beauty of this song.
I just feel like crushing my friends with hugs right now. ;w;
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
Truth be told, the only reason I draw Rainbow Dash so much is because of her design (also for shipping with Fluttershy XD), in personality wise she disappoints me. But just recently in the previous episode, "Wonderbolts Academy", Rainbow Dash shows the attitude I've been expecting to see since the series started. I got to say I'm very happy with the change and I just hope they keep her this way.
So, after watching this wonderful episode I've gained inspiration to make a drawing based on it.
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.
Pinkie Pie's design for the "what if" story where Twilight Sparkle travels into an alternative and dark future.
Just like I did for Twilight, I'll leave a short summary here regarding Pinkie's background:
Right after Twilight Sparkle's mysterious disappearance Pinkie Pie and her friends searched for her at every corner of Equestria along with many others by Princess Celestia's command. But as the months passed and still without a clue the search teams began to give up. All except Twilight's trusted friends. However, not even they could find what the others couldn't and so they gave up one after another. But Pinkie Pie was the only one to prevail. Even when her legs couldn't walk any further she pressed on, for she believed that Twilight would return. About three years later she returns to Ponyville covered in scars from several battles she fought during her quest, and to find that her town was attacked by the Changelings. According to the other mane four, Queen Chrysalis heard of Twilight's disappearance and took haste on conquering Equestria. The years go by and the mane five attempted various strikes at the Changelings new headquarters in Canterlot, but all failed. And they could barely survive the attacks upon their town. Later, when Rainbow Dash's last plan causes grave damage, the group goes in separated ways and Pinkie Pie decides to move into Twilight's former home at the Golden Oak Library. Now she keeps Twilight's home safe from the Changelings while waiting patiently for her return. Which miraculously happens five years later.
Oh a little side note for a warning. This story involves my favorite pairings: Rainbow x Fluttershy, Pinkie x Twilight and Applejack x Rarity.
Next is Applejack! I'm going to follow the order Twilight meets them in the story.
