New addition for my Season 6 Episode Art!
Season 6, Episode 13: Stranger than Fanction
For more info on my episode art: MLP:FIM Season 5 Episode Art Streams

Haha, this episode. The references. But also this creature, the Cipactli (Aztec, Crocodile or Caiman), he looked so happy running around, trying to eat the ponies! :XD:
I had to make him. I love the design job they did on it hah. Whoever was responsible for that of the team, thank you.

It's also just great to see another mythological creature placed into the world. But also the designs and art made for the location. The wall murals and paintings, besides the other aspect in the episode, the convention. That daki... hah
Overall very enjoyable episode, and a pretty good lesson. One that applies to any fandom really.

And a the new character Quibble Pants, had an interesting balance in abrasive attitude, but redeeming skills. Which were nicely acknowledged by Rainbow Dash, which was probably the best way to do that nicely, while retaining snark.

Painted this one a bit different once again. Although at this point I could call every painting different. Its just a combination of methods I've used before, with a certain non-polished finished I've also done before. A bit quicker, easier to manage these amounts of characters and environment to put in, in a reasonable time fit for single session art, as per usual for Saturday Art Streams!!!

Anyhow, hope y'all enjoyed the episode, and had a good welcome back to the rest of the season! Can't wait till the next one.

If that is strange to you, you should see the original creature it was based on.
