Killing two birds with one stone with this one! :iconpilgrim12345: requested this a dog's age ago, AND it fit with the theme for :iconphoekun:'s Mock War Day 2 over on EqD. Time to finish it, then!


So...... this took way too long to complete. Mostly because I kept switching up how I was doing things, and kept being unhappy with the way it was turning out. At this point, though, I'm just overworking it, so it's time to call it complete, whether I like it or not.

Sorry this took so long, ~Pilgrim12345, and sorry it's not better! You've been super-patient, and I hope you enjoy it! :)

EDIT: Forgot to say! The request was for the colts under the barbed wire to be "shot" over by Shadowbolt Unicorns (like they sometimes do with machine guns today) with the instructor looked on.

The instructor, by the way, was to have three legs and one wing. So... yeah!

No worries ;)

(And I'm not sure what happened to her, either! You may feel free to make something up :))

I remember really liking this picture back in the days of the War. Good to see it colorized. I never noticed before that the instructor is missing a leg. Brutal. I love Shadowbolts.

Ha! If they think that is bad, they need to thank Celestia that they wont have to try and live through my "training".

Dunno! That's just what the request called for - though I imagine she's seen a battle or several.

Maybe she broke a Pinkie Pie Promise. ;3
