This episode hah, wow. That was quite a war, or feud basically. Pretty funny to see how they tackled such a topic. Fire the Pumpkin cannons!!! The sharp arrows, the trojan cake, the shield shaped doors, the tactics, ambush, all of it haha. Brilliant stuff.

I admit, there's a slight bias towards liking seeing this darker more aggressive side of ponies because of my First Contact War Universe around ponies vs gryphons.

It was quite enjoyable to see that scenario, and the references mentioned above, but not limited to those since there were couple more there. Like Rosie the Riveter! First time we've seen a mare with a stallion build, which was a nice addition.

As for this piece, I do also admit that I kept some parts a bit simpler. Today is a single session artwork day, so I didn't want to take too long. And my hoof was feeling a bit sore from all the small brush strokes. I enjoyed making an environment again, though. Besides that also figuring out the composition, I really like those type of battlefield paintings, and it's been a while since I did one.
Makes me want to do some FCW again. Which I can get back to after the season.

Anyhow, while I probably forgot what else I wanted to type, this is probably plenty already. Hope y'all enjoy!

Few people know the story and history behind episodes like The Hooffields and McColts. It really gets very deep.
