Plus One

Next addition for my Season 5 Episode Art!
Episode 7 - New Friends But Keep Discord
For more info on my MLP:FIM Season 5 Episode Art Streams

Maybe not my strongest piece. Was fun to make shiny translucent goo, though.
Darn Discord with his chaotic shapes, harder to translate to three dimensions than ponies :P
Then again... I didn't exactly make Discord faces for years either.
I need to refine my my methods more, as always.

Anyhow, episode again as expected a great one. This season has been great for many things already. One that I keep repeating however is them introducing new stuff in nice ways. Still also managing to balance it with visits of older locations or events. In this case even going back several generations! (again)

This little development of Discord was an amusing one as well, brought plenty of chaos.
Thanks Celestia!!!
Celestia had fun moments as well. Poor Twilight, haha.

Anyhow, hope y'all enjoyed it, have my episode art contribution!

PS: Kinda wanted to do the new Applejack outfit...

Approx Time: 10 hours
Time Lapse: Pending.. (It is recorded, but I have like five pending now)

This piece of art is amazing in detail! I love the way the light reflects off the smooze and onto the floor! You've done a wonderful job of recreating this scene from "Make New Friends but Keep Discord". I'm putting this in my favorites. It's a piece of art I feel everyone should see! Keep up the fantastic work! I look forward to seeing your future art, Assasin Monkey! Well done! Five out of five! I also like how it looks kind of like clay. That's really cool. You have a lot of talent! This is possibly your best work of art yet! -Rose

This is best looking goo to come from the fanart in response to the latest wpisode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The reflections, the curves, the points of light. Clearly excelled here. The other point is that the 2 players look a lot like stop-motion or clay-mation. One thinks of Aardman Animations, Gumby, Mr Bumpy and so on. The colours from the episode match the style presented here. I don't know how the artist achieved such perfection but there it is. Attention to line as well as tone is cest magnifique. This is a winner, so well done /)

While I do enjoy the pic overall, it feels kind of “bare.” It could use more stuff added. Maybe a better defined reflection in the floors showing better images of Discord and Smooze and a bit of shininess perhaps? Also some air bubbles within the body of Smooze would probably had been nice. While I know the focus of the pic is supposed to be Discord and Smooze, I still wish there was _something_ in the background. Maybe some tables with treats on them, some background ponies…something. I know someone also suggested adding a slime trail to Smooze and I think that would’ve been nice too. I don’t blame you for stopping where you did because of the work that would be involved; I just hope that you’ll go back and add some more stuff to the picture someday.

Hmm the Smooze I remember was originally a purple ooze looking creature that resembled the pokemon muk and grimer. It would devour everything in its path.

As the song states "Nothing can stop the smooze."

How did you make it look so good?! :D

Seriously, how do you get this "clay" look?!?!?!
PacificGreen's avatar
That smooze almost looks like it's made of clay. O.O
pozolegirl's avatar
It looks amazing!
ijustloveit619's avatar
I imagine the smooze to look a bit different realistic than what you drew here visually but I still liked it :)

This is cool but.. I don't like this Discord. And I don't know why...
Majeh4108's avatar
Good episode. It's the first one where the main focus wasn't on a member of the mane six, spike, or the cmc. Discord learned an important lesson too.
PacificGreen's avatar
Well, technically it did focus a lot on Fluttershy, but yeah, it had a good moral.

Woah!!! This looks just too realistic...!!! It's so cool...!!! :omg: :omg: :omg:

Fantastic work on the power couple, and I think you did an exceptional job on the gooey transparencies that make the slimy gentleman so cool. Of course, you did terrific work on Discord himself, looking very dapper. You also did awesome work with the sense of depth and form. It's great.

This is amazing! I really like the smooze and Discord! keep up the good work! :D

I think the episode had more flaws than good stuff, but I loved the Smooze. :meow:

The shading on both Discord and Smooze really brings the entire piece to another level. Well done!

Discord's character has the advantage that he's still way behind the others in terms of learning to be a friend, so even five seasons into it he can be used to teach the most basic lessons in getting along.

Fantastic work! :)
