The Pone Wars 6.2: Space 'Port

I did a lot of searching for a flower to name the queen, before settling on knautia (a kind of honeysuckle), partly because the flower looked kind of like one I'd already created for the old Flutter Valley set and so I didn't need to do much to design her cutie mark.  Her manestyle was more difficult, involving multiple layers and a lot of careful alignment; for her attendants I just recolored the background flutterponies I'd already done to match G1 toys that I hadn't used yet. I envision her sounding a bit like a higher-pitched version of Queen Novo.

I renamed Yoda's escort to make them a bit more pony-sounding: in the cartoon they're Thire, Rys, and Jek, but here they're Fire (in red), Raze (yellow), and Joker (green). In the early CW episodes, of course, they didn't do a lot to visually distinguish the clones from each other, but later on they started adding haircut variations, scars, tattoos, and armor decals to make it easier to tell them apart.  I suppose it wasn't actually necessary in this case since on page 4 I give Joker a rocket launcher, but by that point I'd already done the colors.

Fluttershy is going to be a bit more traditional in this story, since she doesn't have Twilight around to trigger her this time. Still, expect her to struggle a bit to rein in her rage issues.

Oh, Fluttershy. I'd say, "don't ever change", but of course it's far too late for that.
"When you walk through a storm hold your head up high, and don't be afraid of the dark," right? (The kerning on "storm" threw me off at first, since it looked like Luna's horn was probably covering only one letter.)

Queen Knautia seems like she's probably smart enough to know that not having a supply base in her system would be a better protection than whatever the Empire would offer. I wonder what she intends to play both sides for.

The pod's computer is channeling Eddie :)

What I forgot to mention because it was already in a note (from a long time ago) its that they don't want protection from the other side, they want protection from pirates. Flutter ponies have a tendency to get kidnapped and used as energy sources because they can subsist entirely on UV radiation and exude magic.

Good thing she didn't mess up the coordinates. :XD:

She might not have to move the moon every day anymore, but doing astral geometry in your head is like riding a hoverbike :)
