A third page is planned for the final reveal. It may not be a normal format comic. It may be A FUSION OF SOMETHING MORE. AND I WILL DO MY BEST TO MAKE SURE ANOTHER 4 MONTHS DON'T PASS BEFORE IT APPEARS.
FIND OUT NEXT TIME ON PONY BALL Z.
Celestia's speech box isn't connected on purpose. It's up to your interpretation to decide if she said it, or was just thinking it. (Or I couldn't actually find an attractive way to open her mouth so I kept it closed and let it stay that way.)
Request done in the Kallisti II charity stream. [link]
"Sombra & Shining Armour having some sort of duel? (Sort of showing what happened between them toward the beginning of the Crystal Empire episode, so Sombra gaining the upper hand in a sense." Requested by Jax.
The battle between Changelings Swarm and Crystal Ponies, lead by King Sombra. I always knew that there is hidden potential of dark character. And what do you think about Chrytion - The Ruler of Changelings?
Based on cartoon show "My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic".

This battle took place many thousands of years before the current events. And it is not the final battle of good against Lord of Chaos.
Discord with his new favorite doll versus Celestia, on her burn of rage form: Lightmare Sun.
What do you think?
Founding of Equestria ( "Hearth's Warming Eve" episode ) --> The conquest of the country by Discord. The reign of chaos. --> Bunt alicorn sisters and their allies against the Lord of Chaos --> This battle ( Fail ) --> The final battle with the all Elements of Harmony ( I think Celestia and Luna were users of a specific single item ). Discord Lost. --> Much later Nighmare Moon time --> Thousand years later, today time.
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.
Before you begin to complain that she dont have enough pockets and zippers let me tell you why. I wanted to keep celestia clean, putting too much details on her would make her feel wierd when she is supposed to give an air of mystery and divinity. She also needed to look a bit more princess like than most of the other charas.
This version of Celestia is not only just the co ruler of Equestria but also a Keyblade master. She gave her keyblade to Twilight when she mysteriously disappeared, leaving Twilight and her friends to cooperate with Luna to face whatever dangers may come. I have yet to design her new weapon.
Yeeeah, took a while, but here it is. This time steamponies do a bit more than just showing off. This is serious. Maybe I'll think of some better description later. For now, just enjoy.

EDIT: Here comes the description. This is definitely the biggest and the messiest thing I've ever did and successfully finished. 30 ponies, 13 airships, at least 6 different types of weapons, whole damn steampunkfied Canterlot on fire, many various explosions and this ridiculous number of changelings. I didn't even try to count them.
But I do want to share some facts about this drawing some of you may find interesting. #1 - Bon Bon is the only pony here who hasn't already appeared as a Steampunk Pony in my gallery. #2 - Each changeling is a bit different (I would have gone mad if I had to draw them all identical). My personal favourite is the one on the left with partially missing jaw, giant hole in his head and broken eye. He's cute. #3 - The Crystal Empire Airship is constructed a bit differently than ordinary Equestrian Airship. And it's not only the design - the ship is one with with complex machinery that allows it to shoot powerful lightning beams. #4 - Mane 6's airships also could use similar machinery (although powered by Twilight's magic) but the changelings destroyed it. (there are still hardly visible remains on the ship's bow) #5 - Lyra's using her mechanical hands to fight, because one of the changelings stole her machine gun. He's visible between her and this poor guy she's stabbing in the eye. #6 - The Wonderbolts are armed. Each of them has a small gun attached to their front leg. They also have small grenades attached to their belts, and that leads to the fact... ...#7 - Those grenades are based on actually used XIX century ones. That means they would probably explode carried that way. Ooops. #8 - Why isn't Rarity fighting with the rest of M6? Because she's trying to fix the ship. (notice the blue glow surrounding the rope). And that requires concentration. #9 - These two ponies helping her are my ponysona and my OC, Vector. Fighting isn't really our thing. #10 - Vinyl indeed uses steampunkfied version of bass cannon. #11 - Oooh, this one is my favourite. What happened to the princesses? Why Cadance and Shiny aren't using their love magic? Take a closer look on Chrysalis and you'll know. #12 - I was lazy and instead of drawing the sky I just opened the window and took a photo of clouds. It worked.
Oh, and I made a quick update and these 20 missing pixels are on their place. So the resolution is now 1920x1080 and so, the picture can be used as a desktop wallpaper. (to be honest, I'd have gone crazy with screen so messy and crowded, but... well.)
Goodness, finally I finished it! There was a moment when I wanted just drop everything and start doing something else. To be honest, I drew this picture just because I thought like "Hey, Nightmare Moon would look awesome with chimneys instead of mane!" But it grew a... little... bigger than I thought.
So, yeah, as you can see, I drew the battle between NMM and Celestia. I tried to steampunk them, but do you know how damn hard is to draw a steampunk armor?
I don't know if the princessess here are steampunk enough to consider them as a part of my series. Because I'm lazy and there's still so many other ponies to draw, I'll say "of course they do". And what do you think?

After listening this [link] I thought "hey, I should totally draw Celestia singing!" "And she should wear some super fancy eatheral princess gown with steampunk elements!" "Oooh, and she should stand on a balcony!" "In Canterlot!" "With all the Equestria below!" "And she also could make the sun rise!"
Keep trying, Twilight Sparkle. Maybe the magic of friendship can help you...
Sweet Celestia, I adore drawing Discord....
This started as a doodle on my history homework with Celestia and Luna confronting Discord.... then I decided to finish Discord, but use Twilight instead of the Princesses... This is how I spent my art class since I'm ahead on work.
My little thing about the Princesses ruling Equestria with an iron fist. You've seen it before in previous pics. Added Cadance and Shining Armor to the mix. I always like my Princesses to kick ass and take names.
She's gone face-to-face with Nightmare Moon, resisted the power of Discord, held her cool against Queen Chrysalis, and helped restore the Crystal Heart to its rightful place...but can she handle a thousand years' worth* of Equestrian economy?
* Celestia really, REALLY sucks at record-keeping.
(This was Texel's joke, but he said I could use it!)
