She looked almost surprised there on that first photo, even genuinely thankful and bashful - like it's the first time she felt liked. The time her true self shone through, I say. She looks a little bit less so and more... well, like a villain in this redraw, but still a much understated one compared to the other photos. And it's a very fine drawing as is.

Sunset Shimmer, to me, is the best thing to happen to the franchise. If I had to pick only one favorite, it would always be her. What I love about this is how pure and innocent she looks as she started out in the human world. Those big bright eyes and sweet smile radiate pure joy. She looks like a Greek goddess in her dress and I really love those earrings. I just wish I could hug her, she's so sweet! Fantastic job!  :heart::heart::heart:

I think this was the Human-World Sunset, NOT the Pony-World Sunset.

That's actually a great theory. I like it. 



But I still favor mine that there's only one Sunset Shimmer, the "World Walker"

Aww ^_^  it's so nice to see her in the first year.. She seemed so sweet and innocent.  She has a bit of a disney like air about her on this one. <3

Y'know, based on how she looks in her freshman year photo (that you wonderfully redrew), I'm guessing she was just happy that people liked her. It was probably only later that she saw controlling people was easier that working hard to give them a reason to like you...

I just realized... She didn't even bother with a dress to the school dance during EG.

I mean, I realize she saw all the students band together under twilight, but she could have stuffed the ballot box or something.

I remember this picture from the films. In so many ways, it was Sunset's turning point.

She was so happy that everyone was reaching out to accept her. If she'd been able to surrender her ambition and embrace the love and friendship her fellow students had given her at this celebration, I think that she would have been a much happier person.

As it turns out? This just strengthened her ego and external validation issues. Her path to that confrontation at the Fall Formal was set.

Whilst I think it was a shame that Sunset destroyed this picture in the video for My Past is Not Today, I do understand why. This is just another memory of the path she bitterly regrets.

ShadowSquirrel does whatever he wants!!

If you do not like ponies, go somewhere else!! Do not bother here!!

Because there is no place for anti-ponies!! ;) (Wink)  


P.S Do not you know that Sunset Shimmer (The girl in this photo) is a character of MLP??

So is his hobby drawing ponies, not a job!

And i repeat for the second time: if you do not appreciate ponies, go to another artist and not annoy KP with your comments because you just waste time.

It's not that i don't appreciate poney, it's just that i'm surprised that he drew something not poney-shaped :p

And here was, thinking that finally something that isn't a pony appeared. Well, technically it's not a pony but i'm still disappointed. I miss you drawing other stuff.

TheAlexArtist Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2015
I understand you, But also i miss his work of ponies 
 
Look, even I was disappointed when he after two months of inactivity (the last art was the character Sapphire Shores) instead of making a new drawing of another character of MLP did the Robot Masters of Megaman as females!

So I wanted at any cost that he resume his gorgeous MLP speedpaint series but i made a mistake telling him all the time, I was so worried that I thought he no longer continue his MLP fanart, but also because he didn't answer me

I give you some advice: If you do not want other MLP stuff, go to see another artist that not make MLP art because drawing MLP stuff is also one of the hobbies of ShadowSquirrel.

I think this is fantastic because you drew her with obvious musculature and a realistic neck width. Most artists draws women with thin, "feminine" arms and thin long necks. 

I really appreciate that you made her realistically bulky! I admit at first it jars me to see her -a feminine woman- have such obvious muscles but then I realised that all this time I unconsciously believe that all feminine women must have soft and smooth features. That was a misguided view and you helped me tremendously by just this one picture. :D Kudos!
