"You're going down"!
"In history, maybe! See you boys at the finish line!" ;)

I know a LOT of you ponies have been waiting for this card too be done :eager: and so i went out of my way to make this one something special for a still excellent episode :thumbsup: 

Early ideas and concepts’ consisted of doing an epic illustration of the CMC looking towards the sky with a big fancy golden title above them but i wanted something much more related to the title which is chronicling the history of how the mane 6 became the ponies we know and love.

Running with that in mind i did my visual research in to old medieval books and writing styles and it all followed from there I also took inspiration from the opening scene of season one with the book illustrations.

I used a number of different artist brushes and textures to create this faded painted look similar to how i painted my Princess Twilight Sparkle title card, which was mimicking stained glass.

This card was a lot of fun to design and make I wish in hind sight I had gotten a recording of it I process  but it would have been over 8 hours long even edited down.  Maybe the next card I do. :roll:

As I am feeling in the mood for doing more cards :excited: I will tell you now that The Best Night Ever is going to be done soon but this time I am doing two finished designs one that’s every much the fairy tale magic the girls wanted. the second is a spoof on the reality of what happens at the end. LOL :evillaugh:

So there you go season ones title cards will all be done this month then I can move on to the other seasons. WOOHOO

For new comers The FIM title cards project aim is too create a quirky unique title card art for each of the episodes of the show we know and love =D Link to the series gallery ;) jowybean.deviantart.com/galler…

This year if i ever get time :faint: i plan to start making more title cards based on fan creations including Friendship is Witchcraft and nonpony related shows. :evillaugh: 

anyway Until next deviation LATERS Bronies :peace:

that part at the end of the episode was so heartwarming especially when they realise that Rainbow Dash was the reason they got their cutie marks and that they all owe their cutie marks to her and they all hug Rainbow Dash that was so adorable awwww

It harkens back to the pilot episode's storybook opening, and is all the sweeter for it. This is one beautiful and heartening piece of work, Jowy! As of now, it holds the record for getting the greatest emotional response from me. I don't see why it was necessary to include both princesses, though. With that being the case, Spike's egg should be in there as well.

Just remember that in "The Best Night Ever" there were SEVEN characters with Grand Galloping Goals. You've promised it'll be a good one, but I hope you won't fall into the same pony-fixed trend the fandom does so fucking often.

the princesses are there for decoration of the book no other reason besides that
