It's taken me about six months, but I finally got around to drawing this properly. I'm very happy with the final result - I hope you like it too!

Like the other dresses, the colours are loosely based from her mane and tail. Her shoes are technically not new - my very earliest (or most astute) watchers may actually recognise I've used these shoes before. Her mane is based off her wedding mane, and her crown from her crystal form.
Thanks to NightmareMoonS for feedback and for some suggestions that I implemented!

This image was inspired by a rough scene of Fancy Pants and Fleur. The result however, is not quite as I'd hoped, especially for Shining. I may yet edit it in the future, but it's been sitting on my hard drive for a few weeks already.

Thanks to NightmareMoonS for assistance and suggestions with the original image I made of Cadance's Gala Dress.

Yet another Edit: There is now a dub! Done by :iconimshadow007: you can find it here [link]!
Edit once again: Korean translation done by :iconwess96: can be found here! ->[link]
Edit again: So I log and I see that I have over 1000 messages. And then I proceed to freak out a little. How on earth did so many people find this!?!?! WHAT IS GOING ON!?!? And then I go to Equestria Daily and there it is. Mystery solved! So thank you to whoever submitted this and to everyone else for all the faves and comments! I really appreciate it!

And also the for reals edit. Out of the 24,000+ people that have looks at this, only two pointed out that the unicorn was missing her cutie mark. So well spotted you two! And it has now been added. Random unicorn is no longer a blank flank.

Edit: Change the dialogue just a tiny bit at the suggestion of :iconfairy-slayer: . Thank you for pointing that out!

Holy wow this thing. Just, this thing. I'm surprised that I actually finished it. I usually never finish things this size. I feel I should be congratulated.

In retrospect I think this may have been (at least partially) inspired by the song of the same name by Red [link] .

Hey! First upload of the new year (lets hope it isn't the last).

Damn, this thing. Again a simple coloring turned into god knows what. Tried new things, failed a lot but succeeded (more or less). In the end this started dragging out so think I rushes it a bit. Mainly the mane is not as good as would like it to be. Though I do recommend zooming on the gems and the eye. Also I am aware that the lighting is total crap and that there isn't a consistent light source, this is more or less on purpose because I was trying to push my style rather than be"logical" with light.

Original version is by :icontokagethebunny: (please do not hate me if I butchered it :c)
.:Sun's warrior:. by TokageTheBunny
Anyway, hope you guys like it. Again happy new year ans stay safe.

EDIT
Now featured at Equestria Daily, it seems. o3o

-------
Another preview for you guys from Requiem, made special all thanks to good ol' :iconvolcanico:!

As you all know, he made my last "preview" of the Mane 6 look positively amazing. And he's done it again with my sketches of the royalty of MLP! I mean, JEEZ! I literally squeed and clapped my hands like a child. I have no shame. I:

I highly recommend taking a look at this guy's gallery! DO EEEET! D8
[link]


So I'm pretty sure those of you who actually follow my stuff will know where the sketch came from; the "pony royalty test" thing. Wheeeelp, I liked it enough to get it colored, as you can see. c:

And before anyone asks, I only did the royalty that had horns and wings as a bit of a comparison. And Twilight Sparkle isn't included here because, in Requiem, she doesn't ascend into becoming an alicorn, ONLY because the story was made before season 3. o3o

SO! Let's move on, shall we, to a quick description of our lovely ladies:

In my headcanon, Princess Celestia and Princess Luna are, by definition, ponies. But because they harbor an exceptional amount of magic from all three breeds, they could easily be considered a sort of subspecies or simply demi-gods. To most of their subjects, they are gods, even though that isn't true. The only thing they are immortal to is age, but they are still able to die from outside causes. It's actually managing to kill them is the trick.

Because several people keep asking me, I've decided to add this in too: In my headcanon, as Luna grows more power she begins looking more and more like a creature of the night. This is turn will have her gaining a hybrid between bat-like wings and bird-like wings, fangs, slitted pupils, and tufted ears. To put it simply, when she reaches her peak she will look similar to NMM, only you can easily tell that she is NOT corrupted and that there are still some differences to her and NMM's overall appearance.

Princess Cadence, on the other hand, IS NOT AN ALICORN in my headcanon (all caps because I can't emphasize that enough. o3o ). She is a winged unicorn (can be called a pegacorn, horned pegasus unicorn pegasus), which possess a horn and wings, but do not possess the powers of an alicorn or their immortality to aging. Winged unicorns are not rare, but they don't happen too often either, and are not always born into royalty (or become royalty). Winged Unicorns harbor the magic of a unicorn and a bit of magic of a pegasus, and earth-pony genes ARE needed somewhere in the family tree in order for this sort of pony to be born, but it's nothing close to god-like.

Cadence is a special case, where her magic is a bit stronger than a normal Winged Unicorn, and she even harbors a tiny level of Earth Pony magic; perhaps it's because she's blood-kin to the princesses. But yeah.

HOWEVER, I'm beginning to fall into the headcanon of where Cadence follows the more canon path of how she was originally a pegasus, but was "Ascended" into an alicorn. This is where I have the headcanon that she is an "artificial" alicorn, where she gains the magic of all three breeds but no where near as close to the level Celestia and Luna have (the sisters are born alicorn in my headcanon). And even as an artificial alicorn, she isn't immortal, although her lifespan has expanded. And because she was originally a pegasus, her strongest magic resides in pegasus magic.

As for Chrysalis, you all know she's a changeling. The way I see it, the Changelings are some sort of... I dunno, sub-species of ponies, so they look sort of like them, but they're actually more related to reptiles than ponies (sorta like the hyena; it sort of looks canine but it's more related to the Herpestidae, the mongoose and such ). They lay cluches of eggs and are perhaps cold-blooded (I haven't decided if they were or not), but have the behavior that resembles a hive mind, where they worship and work for one single Queen at a time.

Changelings have something of their own identity, in that they can have slivers of personalities and quirks and different appearances, but its in their very being to CRAVE being one with their queen. As in, they don't really want individuality, only to be as close to their queen as possible. That doesn't stop the fact that some queens are more popular than others for various reasons.

Anyway, Chrysalis. Where as most queens often see their hive as simply pawns in whatever they so desire, I see Chrysalis as one of the few queens that actually harbor a respect and care for her "subjects". That's probably one of the reasons why she's so popular to her particular hive. That, and perhaps because she isn't stupid. o3o

Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut yeah. I'll put more up later, but for now ask away if you have any questions. c: And thanks for stopping by to take a look. ^.^

Clouds are fun to draw. The ground is not. Lighting's all funky, too. Ah well - it was fun to mess around.

EDIT: I got the HEADER?! www.equestriadaily.com/2013/12… :iconsqueeeeplz: I don't even - the header?! You guys, I don't even know what to say! Erm, I suppose I ought to move this to the main gallery instead of scraps, lol. Thanks a lot, you guys, this means the world to me :)  And now that I've accomplished my goal of nailing the header in a DrawFriend, I shall retire. I'm all washed up now, you know?

This wasn't intended to be a Solar Flare/Blazing Corona/Whatever-you-like-to-call-Nightmare-ified-Celestia, but if you prefer to think of it that way, go ahead. 

In truth, it was meant to be an extension of this old one: silfoe.deviantart.com/art/In-D…

Just with Celestia far far angrier. Somebody is threatening the lives and safety of her innocent ponies and she's not gonna let them get away with it.

Cadance here is a by-product of "Nightmares" [link] (see Revisions), but the original one didn't work and I put her in a separate piece here. Shining Armor is either into the story, or doesn't know what on earth is going on. Your pick. Twily remains adorable.

Princess Cadance and Shining Armor taking a stroll through the Royal Canterlot Gardens!

I really enjoyed the season finale, and I want to see more of these guys (though we will probably only ever see them sparingly ever again but come on, Shining Armor visits Ponyville and has an adventure with Big Macintosh? WHO ELSE WANTS THAT ADVENTURE YOU GUYS.)

In my head this is around when they first started dating, but interpret it as you will. Whatever story you come up with for it is perfectly awesome : )

The gardens is a mishmash of Fluttershys fantasy from The Ticket Master. I opened up the episode on YouTube, full screened it and took eight billion screenshots for reference :D

I miiiight be setting this up to sell as prints, so keep your eyes peeled and/or let me know if youd even be interested!

Soooo, I had planned to do a simple glowy Cadance drawing. Then I thought about how cool it would be if her Rainbow Power form was like, superretrosci-fiactionglowyneonbadass! ...I think I need to rest my eyes after this one. 
Inspired by Huey Lewis and The News, Tron, Sega Genesis box art, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, and a dash of Sailor Moon for good measure.

All of these songs are appropriate for the viewing of this image. Srsly. Look it at with the music.

We've started packing for our move, and there's still so much to do! I may not respond to comments right away, but I always read them :D

Or "Philoysius", depending on your preferred spelling.  Sure, plenty of fans ship various characters in any property, and Pony fans are no different.  But how is this pairing so often overlooked?  It has everything...  Opposing personalities with the studious, responsible one and the flashy prankster?  Check.  The tragic implications of a love between a mortal and immortal?  Check.  The humble commoner made good and the beautiful royalty used to palace life?  Check.  Heck, if touching her makes Owlowiscious burst into flames, then you even get some X-menish Rogue love story angst in there.  What more could one ask for in a pairing?  I mean, aside from them not being birds with rather limited dialog options...

In any event, these two feathered pets of princesses would be a cute pairing for some background hijinx.  Heck, Eakin so agreed with my offhand plugging of the largely non-existent ship that he even proved its possibilities in writing with "Birds of a Feather".  As for me, I felt that I had to go forward with this little snapshot, suggesting how the Canterlot native might welcome the latest avian occupant to the castle.

Frak that ending. It destroyed me. How could you Somber.

About Blackjack's mane- I've never liked how it's been portrayed by the majority of other people drawing her. It's that typical Rainbow Dash mane, and while it looks fine on a lot of OCs I felt that Blackjack needed something at least a little bit different. Just a little. Also I had to manually draw her cutie mark because I thought that the ones I found online were all just too complicated looking, with too much excess detail. The yellows and blues don't really fit in with her general color scheme. 

Most of it was done on iPad because my drawing tablet is a little glitchy at the moment. Bright side is there's a progress video, which I will post once it's been edited(because you don't want to watch it in ten minutes of silence now do you)
UPDATE: here it is. www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wi4P7p…

It took me a ridiculously long time to figure out 'IF' just stood for 'IronShod Firearms'. I don't know how it took me that long.

Illustration of Canterlot for an upcoming chapter of a ponyfic I'm writing: www.fimfiction.net/story/76626…

Didn't really plan this out and just started painting... There are a few things that are wonky but I don't care.

People never make the city look big enough, I think. Doesn't it have a goddamn hedge maze? And a racetrack?

Supposedly Canterlot is based on Minas Tirith, but it always makes me think of another high-altitude magic castle: www.youtube.com/watch/?v=c4oLM…

Influenced by my little cousin :iconveggie55-manfaceplz:

About a week ago I was down with the family and was told that my little cousin was outside helping to paint the new shed.
Next thing you know, in he comes, splattered with red paint declaring with such shame and fear that he was a "murderer".
He leads us outside to show his dismembered victim; a common fly.


Just thought it'd be funny to have it reimagined it using MLP :p

*****NOTE: these are NOT shipping children. The fathers will not be implied, revealed, named, or described in any way. My fan kids are designed to look like their moms and nobody else. They DO have dads....I just don't know who they are. I do this as to not get caught in shipping debates and I would like to stay neutral on that battleground. Thank you.***


(COMMENT FEEDBACK IS MUCH APPRECIATED) Thank you all so much for making this artwork so successful! Brohooves all around! :D

EDIT: As I write my fanfiction about these characters, please note that the personality profiles below were written a LONG time ago and have been slightly altered over time. They are not everything you need to know, but still work as a quick snapshot of who they are IN GENERAL.


So let me introduce them to you! (FROM OLDEST TO YOUNGEST)

THE NEW MANE CAST:


BISMARCK (Son of Applejack) :iconapplejacksmileplz:

Named after the apple, Bismarck carries many of the Apple family traits, such as his triangular freckles, orange color, and love for stetson (cowboy) hats. Like his mother, he is honest, hardworking, and very loyal to the family and his roots. Unlike his mother, however, he is a bit arrogant at times.

His cutie mark is a lasso and his special talent is as a rodeo cowboy. A rising star in his sport, he has become a star in the country world and is currently Ponyville's most eligible bachelor. Despite his success, that doesn't stop him from returning home to the Apple family farm were he continues to help grow, plow, and harvest the apples. City life does not suit him well and he would much rather enjoy the company of a few close friends and family than all the fans and groupies of the world.

That's not to say he doesn't love his fame, however, as he can be slightly narcissistic and very headstrong, but humorously so. More than anything else, he is very protective of others and will do anything to help and keep his friends and family safe. His act-first personality is a stark opposite of Radiance, but he strives to be a stallion among colts. Despite his flaws, he is self-aware of them and accepts them as who he is. In the end, he genuinely cares for people, and you will never find a more trustworthy friend. Smart, laidback, and helpful, there are few others who can keep secrets and give advice like him. Must be farmer's wisdom.



RADIANCE (Daughter of Rarity) :iconrarityjoyplz:

Like her mother, Radiance is the poster child of elegance and beauty. Her cutie mark is a fire ruby, a fitting representation of her character. While gorgeous on the outside, on the inside is a fiery flame within her. She may look like just another pretty face, but she is no drama queen. Deceptively smart and athletic, she loves proving the stereotypes wrong by surprising other ponies with her wit and abilities. Her talent is as a model, an occupation choice which both she and her mother loves. With her success as such, Rarity often uses her as advertising for her new dress designs.

While Radiance isn't afraid to get down and dirty, she still has higher tastes and represents the more regal side of the new "Mane Cast." Despite her beauty, she is surprisingly modest and has a good sense of humor, but since she is more humble compared to Bismarck's overconfident nature, the two sometimes do not get along (that and because she has the sharpest tongue of all the kids). Regardless, they are still good friends. She is benevolent by nature and tries hard to help others, but sometimes she can be a bit self-righteous and uppity. Unapologetic for her opinions, she is a strong character. Of course, she still remains a fun friend to be around.



BERRY and CHERRY PIE (Twin son and daughter of Pinkie Pie) :iconcutepinkiepieplz:

The chances of having twins are very slim. Never tell Pinkie Pie the odds. In an ironic twist, babysitting the Cake twins only helped prepare her for parenthood of her own. Berry and Cherry are without doubt their mother's children. Funny, random, party-loving, and open, there is seemingly nothing in the world that can break their spirits. Physics and the fourth wall seem to have no effect on them either. They are as close as twins can be, and are often seen with each other. Their cutie marks are matching as well, with each wearing a pie in the shape of Yin and Yang. Though very similar, they each have their own unique personalities.

Berry is a jokester. There are few things he likes more than to make his friends laugh. Never short of jokes, wit, or the ability to make any situation fun, he is a joy to be around. Though not a fan of bigger crowds like Cherry, Berry loves interacting with other ponies. Sharing stories, jokes, and ideas are things he loves to do. Unfortunately, there are times he doesn't realize when his jokes or pranks too far, but his sister is often there to remind him and act as his boundary. He lives life with his heart on his sleeve and is an open-book in most aspects of it. While this attitude brings out a wonderful personality that is admired by many, it can also backfire, as it leaves him open for heartbreak. Because he expects others to be as open as him, he often finds disappointment when they are not. Then again, it's hard to keep up with his energy.

Cherry is a social butterfly like her mom. You will never find a pony as friendly as her. An avid partier, she loves getting her best friends together. She thrives in groups, unlike her brother who prefers one-on-one interaction, and tends to be a lot of people's "best friend" due to her relatable, understanding, and fun nature. She is a textbook pony's pony, but despite her openness, she is in fact very shielded (another opposite to her twin). Only her closest of friends and family know her deepest thoughts and secrets, and she prefers to keep it that way. Despite being very social, she has seen her brother's heart get broken long enough to be sure the same does not happen to her. Inside, she does not air it out like Berry. Because of this, she can be very sensitive to criticism and hatred, but will not say anything. Fortunately for her, very few ever have a problem with her, due to her lovable nature.



ANDROMEDA (Daughter of Twilight Sparkle) :icontwilighthappyplz:

Being the daughter of possibly the most influential pony of her time, Andromeda has a lot of expectations resting on her shoulders. Luckily for her, intelligence is a trait passed down through the family. As close to a "genius" as socially possible, Andromeda is naturally smart. In fact, because her cutie mark is in science, she is her talent field's equivalent to Twilight's magic. This has allowed her to learn at an astonishing rate. Fascinated by the interweaving threads of science and magic, she has found ways to mathematically create formulas for the creation of new spells, which Twilight tests for her. Her cutie mark is a galaxy, a reflection of what she is named after.

She loves trying new things and prefers variety over repeating usual routines. Like her mother, she is obsessed with reading, astronomy, and learning new things. Because of her high intelligence, she can be a bit of a know-it-all at times, but it's rarely condescending. She does have difficulty in choosing when and when not to have a debate and can sometimes appear to be a smart showoff which can get on others ponies' nerves. Despite this, even though she does not believe it herself, she has shown a growing ability to be a natural leader like her mother and her friends have come to gravitate to her and her willingness to befriend them and act as the peacemaker when no other will.


FLORA (Daughter of Fluttershy) :iconfluttershyishappyplz:

Flora is a gentle soul like her mother, though not nearly as timid. As an artist, she appreciates the beauty of the world and often sees things glass-half-full. In general, she prefers to be inside creating, but she has no trouble with socializing. Making new friends, however, is sometimes difficult, as she would rather stick with the familiar than step outside of her comfort zone. Most importantly, she is very perceptive and has a unique ability to read other ponies' nonverbal and verbal actions. Luckily for such ponies, she has no interest in gossip and often pushes such details aside.

She often hangs around Bismarck, who acts as a big brother to her. She is very kind and is always thinking of others first. Her cutie mark is (by redesign) a pink orchid, her favorite flower. Beautiful, soft spoken, and very friendly, she brings a calm demeanor to the group.


TEMPEST (Son of Rainbow Dash) :iconcutedashsmileplz:

There is no lack of fire in Rainbow Dash, and the same can be said for her son. Tempest is an athletic thrill-seeker who loves to take life and make the most of it. His speed and flight capabilities are superb and he has even been offered a spot as a Wonderbolt. It did not work out, however, as he did not like the restrictions of the organization, which led to his voluntary/involuntary departure. With the deadly combination of natural genetics and a lifetime of training from his once-in-a-generation talent of a mother, Tempest has proved to be an amazing flier. Not to be held back, Tempest has made a fun career as a professional daredevil. His cutie mark is a tornado with two bolts of blue lightning. 

Like Rainbow, he is hotheaded, impatient, and over-competitive. Though wild and free, he is loyal to his friends and family and will always be there for them when they need him. He has a good relationship with Andromeda, who acts as his foresight and conscience when he gets steamed. 


THE NEW CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS:


BUCKY (Son of Applejack) :iconapplejacksmileplz:

Bucky continues the Apple Family tradition by being the third member to be a Cutie Mark Crusader (after Apple Bloom and Bismarck). As for his character, if one could perfectly cross the looks and personalities of Big Macintosh and Apple Bloom, they would get Bucky. He is a high-spirited colt who loves the outdoors, though he is much more laidback than his CMC counterparts. Despite Orion being Twilight’s son, Bucky is probably the smartest of the three and is good at reading people. Like his mother, he usually plays the reliable #2 and has a good sense of street-smarts. Most of all, he is honest and trustworthy. He's also a good singer and song writer, often thinking up country ballads in his head. He's a bit shy singing in front of people, though, and few know of his talent.

Bucky acts as the conscience and strategist of the CMC. Though he can be very stubborn and even hotheaded when pushed too far, he remains a good friend and ally. He has a sarcastic sense of humor and finds entertainment in the rush-into-battle mentality of Orion and the say-it-as-it-is verbality of Peach Cobbler.


ORION (Son of Twilight Sparkle) :icontwilighthappyplz:

Orion is a textbook example of a colt who is too brave for his own good. Naturally fearless like his uncle Shining Armor, Orion has no problem running headfirst into danger or conflicts. Though he has not discovered his special talent yet, older ponies can see that adventure and travel is in his future. While kindhearted and fun, he can be a bit of a troublemaker at times, usually finding himself in a bad situation. He doesn’t seem to mind this, however, as the obstacles he faces are just part of the game he must overcome to win. He has a heart for adventure and projects but lacks foresight.

He is the unofficial head of the New Cutie Mark Crusaders, a leadership trait picked up from Twilight. Bucky often acts as his common sense and judgement, balancing his crazy tactics to more sensible levels.


PEACH COBBLER (Daughter of Fluttershy) :iconfluttershyishappyplz:

Where Flora is similar to Fluttershy, Peach Cobbler is her mother's polar opposite. A tomboy through-and-through, she will do all it takes to prove to Orion and Bucky that a filly can run with the colts and do things even better. She shares a lot of characteristics with Scootaloo with her love of extreme sports, sense of adventure, and tomboy attitude. Also, just as Scootaloo idolizes Rainbow Dash, Peach Cobbler looks up to Tempest as the big brother she never had.

She tends to be a bit loudmouthed and rarely has a filter, something that she and her mom do not have in common. She speaks her mind and expects others to do so as well. Her strength lies within her ability to work with others and bring the best out of them. She is fiery, but driven and passionate. She hates cruelty and will fight to defend those who can’t defend themselves. In the CMC, she strikes a good balance between Orion’s zeal and Bucky’s prudence.




So that’s it. I hope you guys liked my designs and backstories. Please let me know what you think. I highly doubt anybody would, but if you would like to make a fanart of my characters, feel free to as long as you credit me, don't involve theories of the fathers, and avoid anything yaoi/yuri. :)

Because people don't read descriptions, here is my disclaimer again to avoid the "who is the father?" questions. ;)

*****NOTE: these are NOT shipping children. The fathers will not be implied, revealed, named, or described in any way. My fan kids are designed to look like their moms and nobody else. They DO have dads....I just don't know who they are. I do this as to not get caught in shipping debates and I would like to stay neutral on that battleground. Thank you.***

*****NOTE: The designs of these kids are NOT inspired by any MLP character other than their mothers, canon or otherwise. This is *NOT* shipping. I would rather not have commenters arguing on who the fathers are. There are no implied fathers and any color similarities to canon stallions are purely coincidence.*****

For years, :iconrainbowdashplz: Rainbow Dash dreamed of becoming a Wonderbolt and now she hands down the dream to her only child, Tempest .


My take on the MLP future: In the future, Rainbow Dash is invited to join the Wonderbolts. She is ecstatic and loves being a member of the team, but over time, she ends up spending less and less time with her friends. A conflict arises where she must choose one or the other, and in the end, she returns to Ponyville. During her time with the Bolts, she realizes that she has more talent than she knows and is discovers that she is already one of the greatest fliers in Equestria, if not THE greatest. After she leaves, she no longer stresses over impressing the Wonderbolts because she has finally seen her potential and is finally content with who she is instead of belittling herself in comparison to them.

Fast forward 20+ years and we have Tempest, her only kid. Like his mother, he too has dreamed of being a Bolt. By this time, Rainbow Dash has learned every trick in the book, has become self-confident and mature, and has proven to be the best. Tempest has inherited her natural ability, but unlike RD, he has the fortune of being trained by the best; his mother. She acts as his coach from a young age and pushes him to be the best. By the time he is her age in the show, he has the dual weapon of natural ability/genetics and professional training. He joins the Wonderbolts as well, but realizes that he doesn't like the restrictions of formation and rank, so he quits. Always wanting a challenge and having a taste for all things risky and dangerous, he has instead chosen a life as a professional daredevil.


Other:

RD has changed over the years. No longer reckless and irrationally hotheaded, she has learned to temper herself as an adult and mother. Tempest, who carries many of her qualities, proved to be a handful as a colt and reminds RD a lot of herself. Like her, however, he is loyal to his friends and is fun to be around.
