The mane 6 and their ever changing foe.

I noticed I didn't have any mane 6 (group) artworks, so I thought.. let's make one!
Ended up as maybe my biggest MLP piece so far I think, both in size and duration :P

Approx time:
~7,8 hours

PS: for some livestream footage you can go here: [link]

Applejack (say what) plz :iconsaysplz: "You do realize this means we're talking about going up against the largest group of changelings in all of Equestria?"
rainbow dash (super awesome) plz :iconsaysplz: "Yes we are!"
Twilight Sparkle (yes) plz :iconsaysplz: "Then we're gonna need a team."
"To everypony, listen carefully, this is a message from the hive : we don't have to fight. We all want to help one another, we were born like that. We want to live by each other happiness, not by misery. Love mean life for us, but you never understood this. Younearly wiped our own existances from reality once, only because we have done a mistake. A huge mistake. But we have learned, and we, changelings, wish peace between the pony kind and us. I hope you will understand this."

'These...Equestrian ponies seem to be...a formidable and a great nation...who can...stand against any foe they fight against....as long as they...have magic...weapons...and of course, soldiers....I, for truth, greatly detest their use of magic...Magic is something greatly resented and forbidden by my kind....It was because it cost 5 million lives...of our people back in Ranshin...when they were attacked by demons and the Fallen people of our kin. It was bloody...I lost my 5 sisters and 4 brothers in Ranshin...I was the only one left of my family. I carry the dragon crest of my family...I do not know what to do....Now here I am, writing about this strange creatures...I have a feeling that the ones they call 'Changelings' are a rival to them as to us...perhaps if we can help them fight the Changelings, we could proceed to do crack-downs against a few magic users in their lands secretly and discreetly.'

Mind if I do some editing to your picture?
AssasinMonkey's avatar
I guess that's ok with me
Seeing how you give credit back with your edits and this is one of my older pieces as well it should be fine to play around with :)

would you do a commission like that
AssasinMonkey's avatar
Been a long day, just noticed your comments :)

A scene like this would be possible yes.
I'll make and send you a note right away
Airforcebrony's avatar

No problem, Better to be safe :D
Looks epic, but i still dissagree why mane 6 have to fight changelings army, they are normal ponies ( even if friends ) without they elements, and no fighting training, and the fact that they beat up 100 changeligns when entire equestria military screwed up off screan does not mean that they can just rush entire army by thamself.

Elements should have hidden escort when they are on any danger mission and should be held behind the frontline and target enemy leaders with elements of charmony, if one of tham die, who will stop Discord or antoher super powerful villan ?

Thank you :) and I can see where you're coming from and it's definitely an interesting (and fun) thing to think about. How would or could they be used most effectively or maybe safely, or simply in a different way.

In this case I put them more in a vanguard position, on the front line as a form of beacon, standing strong together even if it might be their last stand.
But there's of course plenty of other things you can do, which is so great about the community and everything.
Like your covert operations idea, great view on it.

Obviously the show hasn't touched on all out war, but that doesn't give us any less freedom, there's so much to be done. Eventually I just had to pick a situation that came to my mind :)

I quite like comments like this (among a bunch of others of course), it makes me think
