While there is a fantastic amount of work placed into this piece; I have this odd sensation that there are things that are... off. But not extremely! Just a few little nit picky bits. The soldier's look like their faces got smushed by an over zealous Pinkie. I can see that you wanted them to look like the skeletons of earth ponies though. That is a great idea however, just a smidgen more to the definition there would be awesome. The lighting is ok, it's almost not bright enough but also not dark enough in places. I know, odd, but it feels iffy there...

/Otherwise/ it's a great piece of work, and I love the little details you added! The tail bones are awesome on their own. The ominous glowing red eyes depict the evils of undead skeletal earth ponies as they rise to defend whatsit in the ruins. I adore the excitement on Ditzy's face as she points to an interesting piece while Carrot Top seems to notice the dangerous presence of inexplicable evils.

This is honestly, very original. The gray-scale in the background makes the place feel old while the ponies in the fore-ground are youthful in their bright colors. The rays of sunlight show their path despite the dangers, and ahead; there must be a fountain that shines despite it's age and is covered in flora'd growth. More or less; a fountain of youth.

Finally, I want to say that no piece is perfect, and critiquing helps you get infinitely better. Talent is found in many places and my dear; it pours from your hands. Some molding will make for creations that truly make for more than a thousand words.

So... amazing work! First, I will tell you my personal opinion, that won't affect the final rating. Her name is Ditzy, and not Derpy, considering that that name is offending.
Now back to our business. An amazing piece of art. Though the style ain't something very special, it's very original. I love the shadows, the effects, everything! Though it doesn't have a big impact, I mean, it doesn't draw attention, it's very original, and i my opinion, the artist had a very impressive vision. One or two zombies seem to be forced inside this drawing. Forced as in they don't really belong there, but they make a great addition.
Great work!

"Watch out undead ponies, nightmares and curses. Beware of Carrot Top and DERPY!"

I can read that sentence in a power metal singer's voice because of epicness. I regret nothing.


SERIOUSLY great work here.

I'm loving this. I just plain love ancient ruins (or any kind of interesting brickwork), and seeing these two set off for adventure through realistic-looking ruins (with pony statues and living pony skeletons, too) awakens feelings of great adventure within me. I can easily imagine myself adventuring alongside these two, and it made me grin from ear to ear. The joyfulness of the two live ponies juxtaposed amongst the grimmer setting and ominous out-of-sight skeleton warriors makes for a stunning contrast of tone, which only adds to the realism.

Well done.

Sure, your recent poll asked with was best of your works and still Chrysalis and Lightmare are epic... But this one contains a more lighthearted still very intriguing story, with my favourite hate&love couple (as friends), and I can look at this and come up with so many interesting events have taken place and will take place just in this scene ^^

Third favourite then! :iconclappingplz:

I loved the washed out colors. They help carrot type blaze into focus, and make the skeleton eyes so much more ominous. My only issue is the ruins in the background, which leave so little to reward the eye. Wouldn't a pair of gleaming skeleton eyes or some other hint of things peering down from the tower window or emerging from between the pillars exponentially increase the sense of dread and that "I didn't see the skeleton there" feeling?
