Dietes Bloom is a zebicorn - part zebra and part unicorn. She is very talkative and a bit of a show off. Her friends forgive her though because they know why she was once quiet and reclusive when she was little.
And this makes the full group of friends! Aaaaaahhh... *deep sigh* Done at last. But wait! Soon I will put them all together and tell the tale of how they became best of buddies and what they do now in Equestria.
The reaper of love, harmony, and friendship. His legion of Darklings and Aftershocks will rise within Drake for complete annihilation of all of Equestria, if you refuse you'll be force to join whether you like it or not. The element fall weak against this entity of foreign dark magic.
"All the triumph of this is to benefit one and only one force. We stand by the cred of the DarkHooves and no further as darkness is the heart, hatred the lifestyle, and chaos in the soul of every-ponies dark secret heart.
This is the oath you will abide by for eternity: The Way is superior to all and won't take no as an answer. The Way is victory. The Way shall not be ignored or degraded. The Way is a force only the strong can survive. The Way is an entity in every-pony, unicorn, pegasus, alicorn, changeling, and wraith. The Way is not a government or religion, it a lifestyle most respected. The Way is out of the good in your heart and in with the hate. The Way you and Way is me.
So let Pony be.
The Way is described as evil but it's not. The Way is the reality of Equestria. I'm a part of The Way. I shall take the good of every-pony with no remorse or pity. I am strong, I will fight good.
The Way is death and resurrection of all evil, you will suffer in this plague knowing no one will mourn or care.
Finally I upload the cataclysm Aemount my grim reaper pony and teacher to Drake my wraith pony (specifically ring wraith). Yes I'm making MLP FiM the way I perceive it as a world pron to darkness and evil, plus Aemount does mend the wound in such. (Yes, everything has somewhat of a bleak reference in my imagination x3. Welcome to my world: One way in no way out.)
Aemount name is Arabic for Death just to let you know if I didn't mention it.
EDIT: If you wants some back story then go --->[link] <---here.
Blackthorn: Is forbidden! Yet it's my main kind of magic, to Tartarus with the rules and teachings. I'm 3K years old and took on foes bigger than some draconequis in Riatesque that I helped to introduce him to Lord Necronius 400 years ago. I have defeated, DEFEATED is what I meant to say hehe.
A Sombra'ed Blackthorn. I made her eyes and horn the color complements to her normal variant. Also I made her horn as a reference to her original model horn when I had the first idea. Oh and goat's eye pupil.
This is Zacrilege He is a bad guy as you can see. This is one of his many forms and the only one other then his true form I'll draw since they are the only ones that ever show....anywhere.
His power is extreme. In his true form, he is as big as the mountain Canterlot rests on. This form however...he is only a foot taller then Chrysalis [who is taller then Celestia]
His existence isn't know until Zokar is defeated although there were hints about him given by his army, a species called Zelial. I'll draw Zelians soon.
As for his power, only a united world can stop him from destroying a world and moving onto the next world to destroy. He is that powerful. In 1vs one situation, he could practically look at you and you'll die. So yeah, overpowered and the main villain for my story.
There may be some line art mistakes. I corrected a few when I was coloring it, but I noticed one more that I didn't bother to fix.
Starring every non-ornithine* dinosaur genus with preserved evidence of feathers to date. The numbers represent the year said evidence was published. (Some of these taxa are known from multiple species with evidence of feathers; the dates indicate the first published.)
*For those who haven't read 's book, Ornithes is coined for the clade including the last common ancestor of Passer domesticus and Archaeopteryx lithographica and its descendants. Inclusion of taxa in this drawing was based on the phylogenetic results of data set 1 in Lee et al. (2014).
In order of publication (of feather evidence, not the taxa themselves); those published in the same year are listed from right to left: -Avimimus (1987): Ridge along the ulna represents attachment point for wing feathers. As this taxon was initially thought to be very close to birds to begin with, not much attention was paid to this.
-Pelecanimimus (1994): Filaments preserved near arms, throat, and ribs. Subsequent study confirmed that these represented soft tissue and at least some of them are actually muscle fibers, but the region looked at does also preserve skin (in this case the naked skin of the throat pouch). No comprehensive study looking at all of the filaments has been published yet, so some of them may indeed be integumentary structures.
-Sinosauropteryx (1996): Plumulaceous feathers (initially thought to be "protofeathers", but recent studies have shown that most preserved "protofeathers" are likely just how more complex feathers look when crushed) preserved along the back, torso, and tail. First unequivocal evidence of feathers in non-avialian dinosaurs. A banded pattern is preserved on the tail feathers. Melanosome analysis has been interpreted to suggest that plumage color was partly reddish brown, but it has been argued that melanosome form does not correlate well with colors in these simple feathers. (Thus, I have made them pale and washed-out here.)
-Protarchaeopteryx (1997): Pennaceous tail feathers and some body feathers preserved.
-GMV 2124 (1997): Plumulaceous feathers along the back and tail preserved. Initially described as a specimen of Sinosauropteryx, but may be something different.
-Caudipteryx (1998): Pennaceous wing, tail, and body feathers preserved. At least one species (the type, C. zoui), unusually among maniraptors, has only primary wing feathers and no proper secondary feathers. A banded pattern is preserved on the tail feathers. Melanosome analysis suggests that plumage color may have been mostly black.
-Shuvuuia (1999): Badly-preserved remains of some sort of feathering around the body. These feathers have been tested positive for beta keratin, the primary component of modern bird feathers.
-Sinornithosaurus (1999): Pennaceous body, wing, and tail feathers preserved. The feathers were degraded rather than forming a closed vane, similar to many modern flightless birds. An undescribed dromaeosaurid specimen preserving long hindlimb feathers may belong to this taxon.
-Beipiaosaurus (1999): Shaggy plumulaceous feathers on forelimbs, body, tail, and neck preserved. Subsequent specimens and studies showed that this taxon also had some strange monofilament bristle-shaped feathers on at least the neck and tail.
-Microraptor (2000): Pennaceous feathers preserved just about everywhere, including on the legs forming a second pair of "wings". A new specimen shows a pair of long streamer-like feathers extending from the middle of the tail frond. Melanosome analysis suggests that plumage color may have been iridescent black.
-Nomingia (2000): A pygostyle-shaped structure on the end of the tail suggests that it may have had a tail frond attached. We now know that the presence of a pygostyle doesn't necessarily demonstrate a fan or frond of tail feathers (as Beipiaosaurus also has a pygostyle but its tail feathers don't form a fan), but given what we know of other oviraptorosaurs, this isn't unlikely.
-Psittacosaurus (2002): Bristle-shaped filaments on the top of the tail. May or may not actually be homologous with true feathers, but the discovery of Tianyulong and Kulindadromeus suggests that homology is not implausible.
-Yixianosaurus (2003): Pennaceous feathers on forelimbs preserved. This restoration is very speculative, because this taxon is only known from its forelimbs.
-Dilong (2004): Plumulaceous feathers on tail and behind jaw preserved.
-Juravenator (2006): Initial inspection only found preserved scales, but subsequent studies showed that simple feathers were also preserved on the tail.
-Sinocalliopteryx (2007): Long plumulaceous feathers preserved on the hips, tail, and hind limbs.
-Velociraptor (2007): Quill knobs indicate attachment points for wing feathers.
-Similicaudipteryx (2008): A pygostyle-shaped structure on the end of the tail suggested a tail frond. This was confirmed by subsequent specimens that preserved pennaceous feathers on the wings, body, and tail. A juvenile specimen may show ontogenetic change in feather morphology or molting.
-Tianyulong (2009): Bristle-shaped structures preserved along the back and tail. Undescribed specimens suggest shorter fuzz elsewhere as well. A highly sensational discovery, as this represented an ornithischian dinosaur with what appeared to be feather homologues (whereas the case of Psittacosaurus was more equivocal).
-Anchiornis (2009): Pennaceous feathers preserved everywhere. Period. (Okay, not the very tip of the snout.) Melanosome analysis suggests that plumage color may have been black and white with a rufous crown.
-Yutyrannus (2012): Plumulaceous feathers on neck, tail, forelimbs, hips, and hind limbs preserved. The largest dinosaur preserved with feathers to date.
-Dromiceiomimus (2012): Plumulaceous feathers on body, neck, forelimbs, and legs preserved. Carbonized traces on the forelimbs of an adult specimen suggest that adults may have had wings.
-Sciurumimus (2012): Long, simple feathers on body and tail preserved.
-Ningyuansaurus (2012): Feathers on neck and tail preserved. Unfortunately, the photos provided in the paper are of rather poor quality.
-Jianchangosaurus (2013): Small patch of feathers (including bristle-shaped monofilaments) on neck preserved.
-Eosinopteryx (2013): Plumulaceous/simple pennaceous feathers preserved almost everywhere except feet.
-Aurornis (2013): Patches of feathers on neck, body, and tail preserved.
-Conchoraptor (2014): Pygostyle-shaped structure interpreted as attachment for a tail frond.
-Deinocheirus (2014): Pygostyle-shaped structure interpreted as attachment for a tail frond. Some skepticism exists about whether this structure can really be interpreted as functionally analogous to a pygostyle. The largest dinosaur preserved with evidence of feathers to date (albeit equivocal).
-Citipati (2014): Pygostyle-shaped structure interpreted as attachment for a tail frond.
-Changyuraptor (2014): Pennaceous feathers on neck, forelimbs, body, and especially hind limbs and tail preserved. The tail feathers include the longest known feathers of any Mesozoic dinosaur.
-Kulindadromeus (2014): Filamentous integument on body and limbs preserved. Some of these resemble the feathers of coelurosaurs, but others have morphologies yet unknown in any other dinosaur, including multiple filaments arising from a basal plate.
-Anzu (2014): Pygostyle-shaped structure interpreted as attachment for a tail frond. Its description paper does not make this connection directly, but I had little excuse to exclude it while including other oviraptorosaurs that preserve the same type of evidence. In addition, I have attended a lecture by Hans Sues (one of the describers) in which he draws the correlation more explicitly.
Another stab at a fan art print. Done with sketches, then Illustrator, finished in Photoshop. It took a while to do, but I think it was worth it. Being used to drawing humans only, I was pleasantly surprised at how fun these characters were to draw.
