Star Mares 2.1.2: See Right Through You



We'll be back on the regular schedule after this - I just wanted to actually get us into the flow first.

The ruined former Crystal Pony capital is based on Rabanastre from Final Fantasy XII (for those unfamiliar with it, the game is unabashedly based on Star Wars, right down to the soundtrack and character archetypes, except that the Chewbacca analogue is a rabbit woman in a battle bikini, because Final Fantasy).  It took an excruciatingly long time to produce for only one panel, not helped by the fact that I could only find very low-res versions of the source image.

And here at the bottom we finally find the reason for all of modern Equestria's crystal-based swearing: the artifact known colloquially as 'the Triptych,' because I like the word 'Triptych' and don't think there are enough art history majors reading the comic to point out that it isn't appropriate to apply it to free-standing sculpture.

The counterpoint between seeing Cadance in the special and then Cadance as part of a frozen diorama over a millennium later is much greater than if we'd just gone straight into this, so I'm going to pretend that it was all part of the plan instead of being serendipity.

I'm not an art history major, but I did take those classes in college, and I do recognize that that's not technically a triptych.

That said, I despised those classes, so I can do nothing but give you a standing ovation.
