It's not over yet! More Episode Finale Art!!!

Was kinda wondering what I'd be making, some that I had in high regard were this, a piece with Discord and Tirek or Golden Oak Library.
Became the song related one! Oh my, the princesses singing, all of them.
When we first heard Celestia singing in S3 I was already like "Let us hear the other princesses!!!". They sure delivered lol, not just with 1 but with all of them.

When this started I still was worried about the perspective, but I think that turned out alright. In the end tried not to care too much about the sky's curve and horizon, focusing on the character positions.

So much that can still be made with just the finale. I'm planning on another Finale piece next Saturday. Hopefully I'll be able to keep up at least a decent quality hehe.

They'll play their part.

Edit: Felt like Luna's mane was too far off from the show's style (too puffy and large at top) so I couldn't resist adjusting it.

I just wanna say the best part of these pictures the
light colors, and the bold effect it had on the princess!
But you might need more to the mountians! You should
also blend all of the colors on Twilight S. And well
the shaping is really poor by the rail. When I
first saw the picture my eye went straight to Twilights
crown.... ( nice job ). You should also fix Luna, she
does not have her cutiemark! I love the stars too, they
make the theme come together! So all I have
to say is "good job"!

Your style is amazing when it comes to this and your other art, and Luna's mane isn't too puffy at the top. I watched your video for this and your technique is absolutely outstanding I would never be able to do that on my own, I want to see much more of this style. You can really see how all the princesses feel and I'm almost never able to do that with big things unless I write there emotion next to them. I hope you find this Critique to be of your liking, because honestly I can't find anything wrong with it!

I thought some of your other work was impressive enough, but this piece you did from the song that all four Alicorn Princesses sing is one of the most beautiful pieces I have ever laid eyes on...

It took me a while to realize that the Aurora Borealis emitted from the Crystal Castle was colored after the coats of the Princesses of the Sun, Moon, and Love, but seeing it her makes it more beautiful and spectacular than in the show itself.

Seeing the Princesses as they ensure Twilight that her place as a Princess of Equestria will show itself in due time looks so beautiful with the colors and detail you put into this. They look so awesome, I think I might faint from just looking at it...

Keep this up my friend! You are truly one of the best artists in the Brony Community that I have ever had the honor of offering my positive review to with your artwork! I can't wait to see what you do next with the finale episode!!

<<  > Celestia smile know that your time is coming soon..
       >  princess Luna  As the sun rises so does the moon....
       >Princess Cadance    And as Love finds a place in every heart...


          "You are a princess..You will play your part...!Twilight (Blush) Plz 
One of MLP's most beautiful songs, right up there with Celestia's ballad. It simply embodies the essence of the show. And even without seeing Twilight's face, the emotion is clear from the hopeful lilt of her head and her nervousness and weariness leading up to this point by the scraggly hair. Celestia and Twilight's personal connection is expressed through her face, she has the reassuring look of a mother or a teacher, as well as a hint of pride in Twilight, for coming so far. Luna shows the helpfulness of a friend while Cadence is like a sister, trying her best to guide Twilight through hard times, having known her from a young age. 
The fact that you expressed such complex yet simple emotions so gently and softly in this picture makes it very impactful and warm, showing this scene in a still art piece with just as much as weight as the show did with its song. 
And finally all of them look like angels descended upon Equestria with the bright Aurora Borealis behind each of them, individually magnificent with different overtones ( Strong but kind golden rays for Celestia, Cool bright oceanic blue for Luna, and the amateur-ish, lovely pink shade for Cadence ) but all coming together in a harmony regardless. Beautiful use of color and composition, and a strikingly unique fanart. It's like its straight out of The Last Unicorn. >>

"You're not alone, Twilight." they all seemed to speak in unison, in this dream. "You're never alone. You're friends will always be there for you, just . . . . . in different forms. And we will, too."

Tears streamed down the young Princess's face. It had all happened so quickly! And felt so long, as well. The end loomed over her. Why should she have such a wonderful dream, when reality was so harsh on her and those of Equestria? It wasn't fair! 

She opened her mouth to scream, but no sound emerged. Nothing but a flurry of bubbles; she was underwater. 

Her brother suddenly appeared, standing next to Cadence. Celestia and Luna floated side by side. Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Applejack, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie!

Pinkie bounced up next to her. "
Hey Twilight! Glad to see you again!" Twilight flinched as she was suddenly pulled into a bear-hug of affection. Bubbles continued to pour out of her mouth with each exhale.

Rainbow dash was little more than a blur in her rush to get to the balcony. "
Great job, Twilight!" a cyan hoof thumped her on the shoulder; it felt real, so strangely real, even as Twilight breathed in and felt water flood her lungs. Why did Rainbow Dash prefer to be physical whenever she was affectionate?

Rarity trotted gracefully, her hair swirling slightly in the air/water as she approached. "A fantastic show, darling! Truly terrific!" She stamped her hooves in ladylike fashion against the balcony rail in applause.

Applejack smiled, loping through the air/water and grinning wide as she wrapped a foreleg around her shoulders. "You did your best, sugar cube. You lost a few good apples, but there's no shame in that. You did all you could." The gesture was comforting, in a mother-to-daughter way. Applejack had always been like that; reassuring and kind, and always, always loyal.

Fluttershy slowly floated down, half-hiding behind her hair. "We're all proud of you, Twilight." she said softly, alighting ever-so-gently upon the balcony railing; like a bird, ready to take flight again at the slightest sound. "
And we'll always be proud of you, no matter what you do." But behind that facade was such a caring pony, ready and willing to face even a dragon to protect her friends.

Twilight looked from one friend to the next; each looked back at her with love and pride, hopeful and worried for her.

Her gaze trailed up to the Princesses. Shining Armor smiled and waved to her. "
Hey sis." he winked at her. "You're all grown up. You don't need my protection anymore, even though I still wanna give it to you." A mischievous gleam came into his eyes. "Princess Twily-Wily, Ruler of the Library and Enforcer of Studious Studying!

Everyone broke into a good laugh at that; and Twilight, finally accepting this madness for the sake of being with her friends, closer than family, laughed with them.

The world may be broken, a new enemy terrorizing Equestria, her friends gone, and she alone the only ruler . . . but she could enjoy this, as the last time she got to be with her friends.

Pinkie Pie, of course, somehow managed to set up an entire party behind her in the bedroom without her noticing (Twilight didn't ask), and the festivities only further exploded when Cheese Sandwich suddenly appeared, shimmering into existence off the balcony. While he had been thoroughly startled, he'd joined in the party-planning with enthusiasm. 

Rarity managed to wrangle Rainbow Dash into helping her with fireworks designs, including clouds, lightning, and a signature Sonic Rainbow. Rarity created some beautiful dresses and suits, elegant but not constricting, for everypony to wear, even the Princesses. 

Applejack and Pinkie worked together to create some delicious apple cakes and other treats for the party, and further brought in some games - pinning the tail/wings/horn on the pony/pegasi/unicorn/alicorn, bobbing for apples, Twister, and even, to Twilights' delight, a giant chess board set up off to the side.

Fluttershy organized her animals together, and created an orchestra during a lull in the loud party music that Pinkie and Cheese had been playing. It hit right at home, both lovely and sad, shy and and calm.

Twilight never wanted this to end. But as more and more time went on, and more ponies joined the party, she knew she had to leave. She had to face reality. Ponies that she didn't even know were popping up, coming to talk to her after a bout of terror or confusion, before joining the growing festivities.

She just hoped that she wasn't too late.


o0o0o0o0o~-~-~-`-~-~-~o0o0o0o0o

"You can always return, you know." Luna had trotted up to her on the balcony. The party buzzed on behind her, but out here, it was quiet.

"
I can?" Twilight was surprised; wasn't this all just a dream? She asked as much.

"
Of course. I'll always open the door for you." Luna smirked. "I'm still Princess of the Night, Master of Dreams." she gained a serious, watery expression. "You have a long road ahead of you, Twilight. I won't pretend to know what hardships you'll have to go through. Just know that we all came together tonight, to give you our support, and love."

Luna nuzzled her cheek and whispered, "
I would've loved having a younger sister to teach." she backed away, and gestured with a wing towards the moonlit-sky. "It might be the sun next time, or the Aurora Arboreal, but you'll always have a way out. Cadence, Celestia and myself have made sure of that."

"
But . . . if this is a dream, how are . . ?" Twilight asked. Bubbles still poured from her mouth like before, as if she were underwater. Nopony had been able to tell her why, or why she was the only one.

Luna whinnied sadly. "
We have passed on, but this is a place for us to rest. As more join us, they'll be welcomed here, before moving on to see deceased friends and family, and some ancestors. It is also a place where dreamers sometimes visit, or where ancestors or passed loved ones can come and speak to those still living."

Twilight nodded in acceptance of this explanation. "
So . . . this is only a dream?"

Luna only looked at her sadly. 

Twilights' ears flattened warily. "
Wait . . . am I dying?

"
That all depends on you." Luna answered. "But if you choose to leave, you are always welcome here in dreams."

Twilight felt dread wash over her, lapping around her heart like icemelt waters. But she already knew what she had to do. She nodded, spread her wings, and slowly, achingly, made her way into the light and cold.

I have no idea what happened that would cause such a huge fallout of ponies, even the Princesses themselves, but spare Twilight. *shrug* I'll leave that up to the readers interpretations.

Anyway, this picture spurred on this story. The one thing I'm sure of is that Twilight fell into a frozen stream, got half-froze to death and got her lungs full of water throughout the party. Some nice pony/creature/thing/Discord (possibly?? He's unpredictable, but I don't imagine him as the cause of the fallout) pulled her out and took her to safety, and did all they could, but were uncertain as to whether or not she would survive.

Spike is still alive . . . somewhere. Dragons are tough!! However, he's not sure where Twilight is, either.

Soooo beautiful! This is one of my favorite mlp songs
"Know that your time is coming soon
As the sun rises so does the moon
As love finds its place in every heart
You're a princess, you'll play your part"

Nice.

But where do we lay our heads to rest?

Where do we shelter when the night falls?

For the part of man
Is to take the sombre path
Stumble in the dark
Stray amidst the dust and ash

Like forgotten ghosts
Drifting in the driving wind
Dashing towards the void
Whirling blindly through the night

Like water flung from the highest cliff
We fall, lunge, swirl, dissolve, and fade away
Down into the unknown

FOR KING AND COUNTRY LYRICS
"It's Not Over Yet"


They are inside your head
You got a voice that says
You won't get past this one
You won't win your freedom

It's like a constant war
And you want to settle that score
But you're bruised and beaten
And you feel defeated

This goes out to the heaviest heart

[Chorus:]
Oh, to everyone who's hit their limit
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et
And even when you think you're finished
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et

Keep on fighting
Out of the dark
Into the light
It's not over
Hope is rising
Never give in
Never give up
It's not over

Yea-et-et, woah
Yea-et-et, woah

Oh, game set match
It's time to put it in your past, oh
Feel the winter leavin'
It's redemption season
Long live the young at heart (Here we are)
Cheers to a brand new start (Here we are)
We're revived and breathing
To live a life of freedom

[Chorus:]
Oh, to everyone who's hit their limit
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et
And even when you think you're finished
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et

Life is a race we run
So run till the race is won
Don't you ever give up (Here we are)
Oh no never give up (Here we are)
Life is a race we run
So run till the race is won
Don't you ever give up (Here we are)
We will never give up (Here we are)

[Chorus:]
Oh, to everyone who's hit their limit
And even when you think you're finished
It's not over yet
Oh, to everyone who's hit their limit
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et
And even when you think you're finished
It's not over yet
It's not over ye-et

Keep on fighting
Out of the dark
Into the light
It's not over
Hope is rising
Never give in
Never give up
It's not over

Yea-et-et, woah
Yea-et-et, woah
Yea-et-et, woah
Yea-et-et, woah

I can truly feel it in here, what I also felt in the real thing; that they are putting a lot of pressure on Twilight. Twilight has a lot to live up to.
