Rising to the challenge

Our friends rise up to face another challenge.

So I happened to make an OC out of thin air, gave him a eclipse cutie-mark and before I knew it I was making this picture.

This may not be my most popular artwork due to mr. OC up there (aka Infernal Darkness) but hey, atleast I'm getting better at drawing the poines :D

The background is traced and modified from a screen from S1Ep1. I think Canterlot appears on the shelf up on the mountain in the background in other episodes, but it didn't in this screen. I might add it if people start yelling about it.

All made in Illustrator.

You know, I find it kind of funny how you made this guy so long ago, with a curved horn, a dragon eye and a smoke coming from his eye, and today we have a villain who also has those... ;)

Great minds think alike? :)

All of a sudden... there shined a shiny demon... in the middle... of the road.
"plaay the best sooong in the world, or I'll eat your souls."
Well the main six, they looked at each other, and they each said..."okay".
And they played the first thing that came to their heads, it just so happened to be, the best song in the world, it was the best song in the world!
Needless to say, the beast was STUNNED! A whip-crack went his whoopy tail, and the beast was done.
He asked them,"Be you angels?" And they said, "NEIGH, WE ARE BUT PONIES! ROCK!" :iconyeahplz:

Holy crap this is epic

I just love how you can actually feel that the Big Bad Guy is big, heavy and most likely very tough, and his flames are absolutely amazing.

And of course, this background is beyond awesome. That concentrated amount of epicness in all this shading and details virtually pours from the monitor, and I simply cannot believe it does not have 1000+ favs already.

Thanks mate. I like it when people take note of the picture in whole. I have to admit that the background is a modified trace, but it took time to make and shade :)
ZuTheSkunk's avatar
Just a trace? Aww... I already tried to suggest it as a Daily Deviation. :( It probably won't be accepted in this case.
Larsurus's avatar
Wow... I didn't know I had it in me :) I made a background that turned out awesome! [link]

I have your comment to thank for it!
ZuTheSkunk's avatar
I'm glad to be useful. :) And indeed, the background turned out pretty cool.
Larsurus's avatar
Sorry if I ruined it for you. I like to stay true to the shows original art and I'm just not skilled enough to make such awesome backgrounds on my own. Though your reply spurs me to try harder.

I'm getting better at drawing poines too! :giggle: Sorry, I had the urge! :3

This enemy looks quite believable if you'd ask me! Although I'm not too sure if they would allow a character this evil-looking in the show, but who knows?!

Gosh flipping dang it I made a solar eclipse pony already!

Does Infernal up there qualify as a pony?

He's more of a demonicorn which is something I just made up right now :O
