"Fluttershy, will you be my friend? Pals until the bitter end...?"

My first official hand-drawn MLP-FiM fanart. This is the result of watching playthroughs of this new PS3 game, Puppeteer, all week. Basically, this game is like if Tim Burton, Hayao Miyazaki, and Lauren Faust got together and just made this big super story. You play as Kutaro, a little boy who's been turned into a puppet, and has his head and soul stolen by the evil Moon Bear King. Kutaro must use a magic pair of scissors to fight off the Moon Bear King's generals and save all the souls of the children of the world.

But seriously, I felt a lot of "Keep Calm and Flutter On" vibes from this story. So I finally decided, "Why not?" and cranked this little beauty out. Fluttershy, the scissors, Discord, and the moon/Luna are hand-drawn, and everything else is clip-art and Photoshop effects. The zodiac signs are there because in the game, the Moon Bear King's generals are all Chinese zodiac-themed; so...Discord the Moon King's generals are all Western zodiac-themed.

I just love the demented and distorted drawings you used to portray such a scenario. It fits Discord quite well.

Not to mention the very unsettlingly unfitting background you used, implementing paper cutout-esque additions.

It's borderline abstract and I love it.

The stage setting is based on the actual game; "Puppeteer" is a play, and all the characters are actors. Fluttershy is supposed to look like she's a wooden puppet ("Puppeteer"'s Kutaro is a little wooden puppet boy). Discord is a puppet too, but I just kept him in silhouette to emphasize just how intimidating he's supposed to look.

 Thanks for the nice comment.
