"If it's no trouble, I would love to see a picture of Twilight (and maybe her friends) fighting back Changelings in Canterlot! I'm practicing at the moment on my Changeling-drawing skills and it would mean so much to me coming from my biggest inspiration! X3 (P.s. If it's too much trouble, then it's okay! )"
Okay, so the best part of the MLP comic from IDW publishing is the incredible cast of artists, writers, and colorists working tirelessly on every issue! And the second best part is definitely Nightmare Rarity. But the THIRD best part was from Issue 5, where Pinkie Pie randomly appeared in an adorable cheerleader outfit! The dangerous levels of cute are not measurable by any known method or equipment!
Took me a few weeks, but I had to make a version of her myself! Not sure how she's holding those pom-poms, exactly... Magnets maybe? Industrial adhesive?
Cheerleader Pinkie is now available as a tee shirt over at We Love Fine- [link]
All my other pony-themed WLF shirts can be found right here at this link- [link]
Vincent Tong is the incredibly talented voice behind Donut Joe, Prince Blueblood, and Garble the Red Dragon on My Little Pony as well as countless other voices and television roles. He was kind enough to allow me to design a pony-themed homage to Edward Hopper's famous painting Nighthawks [link] for autographin' at conventions.
This is an alternate version I put together for Art All Night Pittsburgh, a local public art show. I'll upload the real version with Vincent's characters closer to his next convention appearance but for now, enjoy the late-night antics of Twilight and Trixie!
There are few alive today who are privy to the mysteries of the Crystal Empire, its histories and secrets relegated to dusty tomes and elusive archives. Stories of the Empire's founding muddle with myths and legends, and no single figure is more mysterious than the first and only Crystal Queen.
While there are no definitive consensus on her origins, most agree that the Crystal Queen was a very powerful wizard who went by the name of Meaghan the Bright before ascending to the throne. She ruled as Queen for nearly 500 years from circa 800 y.b.b. to circa 320 y.b.b., and at the height of its power the Crystal Empire stretched across every continent of the world, its Imperial Capital a shining beacon of power. She entrusted the governing of the Empire's colonies to her loyal Justiciars: female officers of her inner council and close friends with whom she shared her vast knowledge of magic.
The Crystal Queen disappeared from records as mysteriously as she had appeared. In circa 320 y.b.b. Meaghan vanished suddenly, leaving the Empire without a Queen. Her Justiciars shared the duties of ruling the Empire amongst themselves, and took up the title of Princesses.
The next 310 years (circa 320 y.b.b. - 10 y.b.b.) saw the Empire's colonies flourish into powerful dominions in their own right. Their prosperity was sadly in stark contrast to that of the Imperial Capital, which had become increasingly weak amidst internal power struggles and decay, finding itself unable to exert any meaningful influence on its colonies.
From circa 10 y.b.b., the weak and fractured Capital was rocked by turbulent uprisings and invasions, culminating in the unicorn Sombra enslaving its populace and prompting a siege on the Capital by the combined colonial armies in retaliation. Sensing defeat, he cast a curse on the city, snuffing out its once proud light. With that, the age of the Crystal Empire finally came to an end.
Giving some fan love to the background ponies as they have as much character as the mane 6 do .It will be cool to read the upcoming Big Mac arc where he will interact with the other citizens of ponyvillie maybe Mayor Mare will make an appearance.
I was also inspired by this piece I did [link] I seem to love sunset scenes in my pony art right now. But I would like to try out different weather types in future illustrations since lighting and weather is a subject I want to become an expert in .
Nothing really special about this sketch. expect the line art is all black for once and there’s a Derpy . I saw a couple of the season 2 episodes over the weekend again so i am feeling inspired to do some episode inspired art . I have so many pony ideas I want to do its not even funny . I do have other projects to get on with “cough” web comic
A brand new FIM title card will be done and uploaded soon excited so stay tuned for that. Its one of the bigger episodes shall we say. Until then check out the rest of the series here [link]
