Cover art for Walking Through Fire by SPark comissioned by Bladespark (one and the same)

This one was fun. It was supposed to be a regular old shaded single character, but, well, there was fire involved, and I went a bit nuts.

Now to take that finale picture idea off the shelf again. It won't top this though.


Edit: The formerly "upcoming story" is now released, and linked above.

Aside from the wings looking like platic, it's great.

Dragonforce! Through the Fire and Flames! (Oh wait the title here at this fan art has an extra 'the' on it.)

Twilight Sparkle uses her magic to go through the fire and flames!

I was confused by this comment, because I was pretty sure I was right about the number of 'the's. I looked it up, and it turns out both are half right. The title of the song is "Through the Fire and Flames", but in the actual lyrics, they sing "Through the fire and the flames,". (We carry on) I kind of like the flow of the latter, so I kept it.

Anyway, thanks! Glad you like! :D

My favourite thing about this piece is the form. The shading is well done, and brings out the shape of the character really well, especially in her head and wings

On a cold winter morning!
In the time before the liiiight!
In flames of death's eternal reign,
We ride towards the fiiiight!

When the darkness is falling down,
And the times are tough alriiiight!
The sound of evil laughter falls
Around the world toniiiight!

Fighting hard, fighting on for the steel!
Through the wastelands evermore!
The scattered souls will feel the hell,
Bodies wasted on the shores!

On the blackest plains,
In hell's domain,
We watch them as they goooo!

Through the fire and pain,
Now once again,
We knoooowwww!

So now we fly ever free!
We're free before the thunderstorm!
On towards the wilderness,
Our quest carries on!

Far beyond the sundown,
Far beyond the moonlight!
Deep inside our hearts and all our sooooouuuuuuuullls!

So far awaaaaaay, we wait for the daaaaaaaay!
For our lives are so wasted and goooooone!
We feel the paaaaaiiiiin of a lifetime lost in a thousand days!
Through the fire and the flames we carry on!

As the red day is dawning!
And the lightning cracks the sky!
They raise their hands to the heavens above,
With resentment in their eyes!

Running back through the mid-morning light,
There's a burning in my heart!
We're banished from the time in a fallen land,
To a life beyond the stars!

In our blackest dreams,
We do believe,
Our destiny this time!

And endlessly,
We'll all be free,
Toniiiiiight!

And on the wings of a dream!
So far beyond reality!
All alone in desperation,
Now the time has cooooome!

Lost inside you'll never find,
Lost within my own mind!
Day after day this misery must go oooooonnnnnn!

So far awaaaaaay, we wait for the daaaaaaaay!
For our lives are so wasted and goooooone!
We feel the paaaaaiiiiin of a lifetime lost in a thousand days!
Through the fire and the flames we carry on!

Wha-o-oh…
Whao-o-oh…
Whao-o-oh-ooooooohhhhh…
Wha-o-o…
Whao-o-oh…
Whao-o-oh-ooooooohhhhh…


Now here we stand with their blood on our haaaaaaands!
We fought so hard now, can we understaaaaaaaaaaand!
I'll break the seal of this curse if I possibly can!
For freedom of every man!

So far awaaaaaay, we wait for the daaaaaaaay!
For our lives are so wasted and goooooone!
We feel the paaaaaiiiiin of a lifetime lost in a thousand days!
Through the fire and the flames we carry on!
