Wow, This is absolutely stunning, The colors in this piece are so vivid, and the shading is just breathtaking! The anatomy is amazing, especially Sweetie Belle's. I really like how all the unicorn or alicorn ponies always have their horns, no matter what! I love how you drew Twilight, in a pose which is almost identical to show style, It's ridiculous how close it is, I hope no one accuses you of tracing!
The storyline is however, quite heartbreaking, and every time I revisit this page, many tears are shed. This lesson should be taught to all fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic everywhere!
From the shards of classical art's past, a new glass is made and filled with the theme of this brilliant artist. This piece is the living embodiment of what it means to truly struggle. The artist unintentionally creates a conflicting series of emotions inside the viewer with this work.
The pure feeling of distress created when we see the first young horse who appears to be crying battles with the feeling of superiority over the same horse due to her misshapen body and bad spelling. We do not know if we want to sympathize with the horse, or pity it.
The lavender horse beside it is the true picture of beauty, with her perfect anatomy, her elegant wing (note that it is folded, showing her modesty) and her flowing ianthine hair. Despite this beauty, however, the horse is much smaller than the younger horse. This shows the exact caricature that is struggle in life.
Our emotions only begin to stir more when we see the lower panel of this sequential artwork; it features a close up of the young pony from before. She now has no tears and a unicorn horn, also leaning a bit farther forward. This only goes to show that this final panel illustrates what it feels to overcome struggle. The horn represents the middle finger, telling all other oncoming problems to 'f**k off,' so to speak. The lack of tears shows strength and pride. The leaning forward shows that the horse is ready to face anything now, headstrong.
Perfection to the last detail. From the conflicting feelings of sadness seen in the first panel to the overwhelming sense of pride in the last, this puts all other modern works to shame. This is the piece of art showing we are on the precipice of a new age, and this is only the beginning.
