:iconmickeymonster: was kind enough to let me colour one of his sketches :D Story Gathering by Mickeymonster

I added some detailing to the sketch which I hope was ok ^^; But like 99% of the sketch is purely Mickey's.

Personally, I dislike it when I see some-one who has coloured some-one else's (usually a very popular artist) sketch by simply adding flat colours to it. I mean... it's not BAD, but I always think "That's a shame."
So, because I know this is how I feel, I decided to put a little more effort into this than I usually do so I'm not just riding Mickey's coat-tails.

I hope you like it Mickey, and thanks for letting me play with your drawing :heart:

Also, the background is from here;
Throne Room Stained Glass Windows Background by tamalesyatole

So it's almost a 3-way collab haha!


I feel the need to point out Luna's mane is not a stock image. I painted that myself :P

I hope it's ok. My art skills still need a lot of work.
I didn't sign this one because the sketch isn't mine. But please don't take it and claim it as your own.
Also, please don't vector.


As always.... I should be doing commissions XP but I needed a break.

EDIT: I dunno if my settings were weird or if it looks weird with the dA background surrounding it, but I was unhappy with how green the picture looked. So I adjusted a few things.

:star: Thanks for the header feature EQD! :heart: and thanks to those who let me know of this X3 I never know when these things happen on my own. :star:

I didn't recognize the style when someone posted this on Facebook. Then a reverse google image search only brought up people favoriting it in their DA, then a leap to someone's account, and a search through their favorites for 'Discord' and it brought me back here!

On the original FB comment I wrote "Aaaaaaah! I can't stand how cute Discord is in this picture. I want to kiss him!" It's no surprise that you; the master; of drawing the master, did this!

I may or may not have gotten this on my left outer forearm twitter.com/GauthierGriffon/st… and Angel Bunny holding a teapot and a stopwatch is just tucked inside the forearm. You did a Discord commission for me as well, so, it holds true, you do draw that wacky, chaotic, danger-noodle, freaaaaakin' awesomely!

Thank you very much :) but I simply coloured this. The original drawings was done by :iconmickeymonster:

And therein lies my fault of all faults. I don't read picture descriptions. *sigh* I think the term Foot in your mouth, should now just be called "Pulling a Paul" as I don't think I could have put my foot in my mouth farther than I had with this one. Wow. My apologies.

This is lovely, apart from the fact that Tirek frightens me.

Firstly, I LOVE this!!! Also, this is what I picture them thinking:

Luna: *sighs happily* I remember that...

Discord: Hmmm...How on Earth did they-? That must've been awfully tricky.

Celestia: *In purest bliss* And they had a very harmonius ending. *looks around herself smiling*

Sombra: How can it be? Tis interesting...and yet I have not read of any crysstaallsssssss...

Chrysalis: How interesting...Impressive.

Sunset Shimmer: Sombra...Is he a pony? Or...?

Tirek: Hmm...*scepticle* Their methods don't impress me in the slightest...This books seems to me as very biased. I'm not sure I approve...

Whatever the story here, it is probably way too meta.
