Once Upon a Cadance

New MLP Episode inspired art for my MLP Season 7 Episode Art collection!
Season 7, Episode 22: Once Upon a Zeppelin

Again, I didn't quite know what to make from the episode. Nothing screamed at me, or like last week's, no artist pony to make either. But then, something else might get people screaming a bit, so I went with that little moment.

It's a combination of factors that made this poor little filly a bit off putting haha. The mask itself is actually not too bad once you take it aside. It's the face underneath it that's a bit focused haha. (Also, if you look at the scene, her mouth is a lot lower than it should maybe. Or her eyes are too high (They had to align the eyes somehow I guess), once you see it.

Still, it can be a bit creepy looking, but at least it's nothing more really. Underneath it is just a very enthusiastic little pony wanting an autograph of her favourite princess.

This piece was made a bit faster, just a little painting. Didn't want to spend too much time on something that's mostly just for the comedy of the scene haha. (Kinda like when I made Diamond Tiara double triple something chins)

Either way the epsiode was quite enjoyable, a lot of real life relatable things, though. From signing stuff you didn't read, to social awkwardness, to activity priorities. And gosh did it hurt to see Twilight miss the one thing she really wanted AND planned/expected to be at. That's one of the worst. Something I know can haunt you for the rest of your life, missing those moments. The tears were justified, though then she snapped.

Approx Time: 2 hours

Finally got around to watching the episode 2 nights ago....and this piece lives up to the creepiness that surrounded most of the show time. Kudos =p

You sure this isn't "Happy death Day"?

That was creepy, as you said. I think what you said is part of what make this picture creepy, but also the fact that the mask is supposed to have a warm smile, but that the eyes are all crazy and not really warm at all. The contrast is quite disturbing.

This part cracked me up, especially Cadance's reaction. :lmao:
It's like a goddamn competition with you people. Like "let's see how much MLP shit we can put on this dump of a website and how often we can get featured!

Pretty much sums up fandom in general.
For example: I write sonnets about ponies better than thou.
Why TF are you writing sonnets? This ain't shakespear days! I don't wanna read that assholes shitty poems anyway, especially since I'm forced to read them!
