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.

This print was done earlier in the week and I released it at Las Pegasus Unicon since all four voice actors for the princesses are attending. I've already sold out so I figured I'd post it. These pretty pony princesses may be pretty pony princesses, but that doesn't mean they are at all weak.. that's why I adore them
I loved this concept. I HAD to draw something with it. I just absolutely loved the idea of Luna helping calm other ponies' nightmares especially since she was once the biggest nightmare herself once upon a time. This episode gave me SO much more respect for the Princess of the Night.
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.
DETAILS. SO MANY DETAILS. Please, validate the effort put into this and zoom in. Things like the clasps and links that hold the armor together. The details on the helmet, both Celestia and Twilight's peytrals (the chest plate thingies). ALL THE THINGS.
So, a really freakin' long time ago, I was asked if I could do a picture with Celestia in armor. I went "Heck yeah! That'd be fun!" Since it wasn't a commission, I took my sweet, sweet time on it. I'd work on it for an hour and then leave it for a week or three and then pick it up again for another couple of hours. Stylistically, this is such a crazy departure from the usual sketch vomit I submit (I say that lovingly, the sketches are me learning and experimenting with digital medium. This was an actual test of my skill). There are still some errors, but I need to call this done and it get it out there.
About halfway through, I realized this would be the perfect picture to record to make a timelapse of. By then, it felt too late. Whoops... Instead, I'm going to offer up the huge Photoshop file. I approached this like an oil painting (that's my undergrad degree. This was an experiment in process. NEVER AGAIN. That was a stupid decision.) so there are a lot of superfluous layers. Every layer is numbered in order of creation (mostly) and named. Layers with a "-" in front is a hidden layer, like a reference picture or something that became useless later.
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.
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.
Not long ago I heard the egyptien legend of Seth, Re and Apophis:
Re's, the sun god's biggest enemy was Apophis, the god of evil, who usually had the form of a serpent. It said that Apophis could hypnotize Re and it's ship's crew. Only Seth, the god of chaos was the only one who couldn't be hypnotized. So he got the task to protect Re from Apohpis.
Of course as MLP:FiM fan, I had to think right away about Celestia and Discord. And this picture happened. Why does the snake has similar eye of Sombra. Well because of dark magic and everything.

Inspired by [link] , and the notion that Discord wouldn't stop at just hanging off the back of the chariot --- 100% digital again Drawn and lined in Photoshop, then colored in Flash. think I'm starting to like digital stuff slightly more than traditional. pfffffff
