It was inevitable I get around to Steel Hooves and recasting him in a sort of 1790's version of FoE. The challenge of course is translating a pony who only ever trots about permanently sealed inside 2227AD power armor for 1793. I eventually had to ask some friends, which confirmed the only feasible aesthetic design choice I had left in the end: put the old ghoul inside an old suit of armor.

I also probably muddled the French up too.

First off, this is a very cool idea and I'm not really in a position to complain of artwork.

I love the way you interpreted AJ's knight and made him a knight. The ear looks a bit muddy and slightly melted into the suit, but maybe that's part of the look, him being a Canterlot ghoul. The veins on the eye are a good touch and adds a touch to the realism. The breath of pink also adds to his design, reminding of the pink clouds that forever incased him.

All in all, I think you did a great job and I encourage you to continue to improve and evolve your art. This is a great piece and a great idea.

Also, as a secondary language French speaker, the title drew me in. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/let…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="395" title=":P (Lick)"/>

"Chevalier de la république" instead of "du republique".
Nice artwork ^^
