Angle of the Tatzlwurm


Badge Awards

Episode art here we go, another week, another piece. This time one with quite a bit of action I'd say. Oh, and big (bigger) beasts hehe.

The moment that scene happened, I knew I'd probably end up doing that. It having the bonus of a large scale creature, even though I sized it a bit, but also Cadance. First time making her in pony form!

She had good addition to the episode as well, she acted quite nice in the end. Nice to see they put the spotlight on her for a bit, she was falling a bit behind.

Anyhow, great fun making this one. I now realise I kinda missed doing a large scale piece. Dutch angle returned as well, action, spinning, ponies. fun

Hope y'all are enjoying the weekly episode art :)

Approx time: 7 hours

I have to give it to ya, you did an excellent job with this. The way you captured the movement of the Tatzylwurm was expertly done, and the dutch angle really helped to convey the feeling of action. Twilight's and Cadence's expressions were done very well considering they're so small compared to the worm. The worm itself was very expertly done as well. You really took the illusion of perspective and distance with its body, like there's plenty of detail in the front part because it's closer, and less and less detail as it flows farther and farther away and gets blurry because of its twisting movement. And best of all, there isn't a center focused subject matter anywhere.

I think this is too scary for little girls
Oh my Celestia! Yeah I saw this scene with that tentacle creature from YouTube. Well, show for little girls my flank. Sorry I expected something so scary to happen. "Epic" that's right anything that involves battling monsters and mythological creatures is considered epic finally slowly came in for season 4.

Damn, I wish this was 1920 x 1080. Would have made for a glorious wallpaper. 

It's still a very, very VERY good drawing, you should feel proud of you. I hope your parents are proud of you as well.

If my parents would see this and ask what it was and I'd say: "Oh, it's just a monster from MLP FiM," I think they'd get a heart attack. Oh Noes!

A particularly monstrous look at an awesome monster.  Horrifying, yet amazing.
You did a wonderful job.

when I first watched the episode, I didn't realize that the Tatzlwurm was based off of an actual mythical animal from Japanese mythology. Knowing that now gives me hope that the trend will continue, especially since season 5 has been hinted to take place at least in part outside the realm of Equestria.

fantastic piece of art and I look forward to more like it.
