Fanart - MLP. Gone Mare



It's been a while since I've drawn something for myself and myself only.

Princess Cadence has disappeared and all looks turn to her husband, the Captain of the Royal Guard, Shining Armor. But even before anyone can figure out just what has happened, the Princess makes a surprise return. All seems fine now that the two lovers are together...but is Cadence the same mare she was before disappearing?

I was bored out of my skull while at a comic convention taking place locally, when the idea of combining the poster of "Gone Girl" and MLP crossed my mind. What made the idea stuck more than anything else were the ponies I wanted to draw them with: Princess Cadence and Shinning Armor. As I was drawing it I kept wondering why I wanted to include those two characters in the parody of the poster, like what was I trying to imply with it? Am I really saying that these two characters, who I genuinely like and am a big fan of, are like Nick Dunne and Amy Dunne?

I'm still trying to figure it out, which is something that I keep doing with the movie itself, but let me ask you: Wouldn't it make a lot of sense that a scenario similar to the one in "Gone Girl" could happen with these two? Think of it with the inclusion of Queen Chrysalis and how "A Canterlot Wedding" played out. Princess Cadence disappears for a while, then she comes back but she's not who she was, she's somepony else...or something else.

I liked the many ways this idea could work out, so I went with it. I hope you guys enjoy it.
