Commissioned by ~Achenara giving me this awesome opportunity

A tribute to the awesome writers of My Little Pony: Friendship is magic. For what they've done for us, what they've created.
This world to play in, to experience. This is meant a thanks, a sign of appreciation for them.
They don't always seem to get the attention they deserve, so this just for them.

I believe in all of them!

WIP: [link]
Time Lapse: [link]
Approx time: 16 hours

This one has been an awesome experience to create, trying to replicate their faces, to create a scene with 9 characters. Althought a struggle, in the end, the end goal makes it all worth it. A tribute to the writers who don't always seem to get the attention they deserve.

So please do spread your the love, show your appreciation to the writers! I would love it if you'd share this with others, put the writers in the spotlight!

Names of the writers featured here:
(Zigzag from left to right, up, down.)
Meghan McCarthy, M.A. Larson, Cindy Morrow, Amy Keathing Rogers, Charlotte Fullerton, Merriwether Williams, Dave Polsky, Corey Powell, Chris Savino

For those wondering why Lauren Faust (only) made a cameo appearance through "Create"
She has ascended beyond the status that the other Writers have. She is already on an entirely different level!
This piece was to bring the other writers closer to her, to put them in the spotlight as well

Edit 2:
So many awesome responses, thank you all!
The Writers are an important part of the show, so it's great to see the appreciation

As a little fun fact: This entire piece slightly started because of M.A. Larson during his interview at Pegasisters Live back in February :)

A wonderfully rendered image, tributing some woefully underappreciated artists. All fanbases need more pieces like this. Salutations indeed.

I don't know whether I should be awed by awesomeness, or laugh my head off.

It's so... ... so ... epic!

We can see them all represented as heroes... And still, they don't have huge glowy powers nor awesome weapons and armors (unlike most of the epic deviations I've seen on this site). They wouldn't need it anyway because their talents aren't based on destroying but creating. As we can see in the picture, they don't need flashing lights, cheering crowds, or extreme charisma.
Then a question is asked : what makes the essence of true heroes today ?

Thank you! It's so nice to read how you see it this way :D. That was exactly the direction I was wanting to go for. They created so much greatness for us to enjoy and even more to come!

They deserve this. I hope Merriwether Williams knows that there are fans who are happy with her work. I'll defend Mysterious Mare Do Well come rain or come shine.

Yes indeed, I sure do hope she knows her work for the show is also appreciated. The episode was fine, I enjoyed it :)
I think all the writers deserve a spot.

Amazing. I watched your time lapse and it really inspired me to be more like you in terms of how you draw humans and shade. It is so cool.
