Heroines of Harmony

My entry to the December Draw-off.

Worked on this one for 3 days straight, using only pencil and added the text on Photoshop.
The inspiration? after having a trip of nostalgia and listening to this masterpiece: [link]
I thought to myself: Why does this fit Friendship is Magic so well!?

Images came to my head and the idea to make a PMV with the song did too. so instead I decided to make this little comic. I've never felt so proud of a drawing, hope you guys like it :)

Before I get to the thick of it: Ultimate Illusion is a synonym of Final Fantasy. In the Italian/German/French/etc. version of Duodecim, Ultimate Illusion is translated very similarly to Final Fantasy such as the German (which I forget, but I'll try my best to apply my feint German vocabulary) Finelle Fanntasie (oi, that didn't look German at all, did it? XD )

Now, let's see. Another synonym for Friendship is Magic could possibly be "Harmony Becomes Spirit" which could appear in a text box much like "Ultimate Illusion" and cause dramatic holy damage. (I don't entirely remember what element Ultimate Illusion were, heh...)

You see, spiritual energy, or Qi, is like a sort of magic formed from the soul, and can be expelled much like magic attacks, as in the most prime example of Ryu's Hadou abilities. Well, even though the spirit in "Harmony Becomes Spirit" is used to attack in my example, there still remain multiple other instances of the magic of friendship, a spiritual release brought from pony harmony, assisting in other matters like Kingdom Hearts from S02E11, yeah?

...Sorry, I should probably find friends. XD

(No doubt no one speaks as detailed as all this 'round my town, most likely, however. :I )

I didn't even know this work was based on Code Lyoko or however it's speeled, but on the last line, I'm like "Hey, isn't Code Lyoko? The show I used to watch when I got up at 6 in the morning with nothing to do? 'reads description' IT IS!!!!!! :D"

Amazing!!!!!! :D

Beautiful work! Impressive really, specially because it is made the old fashion way with only pencil. I am seriously at a loss for words here.
