Something's wrong with Carrot Top.

Hmm ... Derpy's becoming suspicious, and Carrot's being ... too googly-eyed for Ghost Mare ...

I'm actually working on a series short stories for these paintings and for Carbon Maestro's music.

You are just NOW starting to get suspicious, Derpy?
Ricky2314 Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2015  Hobbyist Artist

ColonelBSacquet Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2014
I love Derpy's messed-up mane and distrustful eyes. :-)

Is that Atlantis up the top left?
Dotterall Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2013   General Artist
This is so beautiful. I love all the carved detail and the glow of the ice-magic.
SilentCarto Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I've looked at this piece over and over, and I only just noticed the statutes of Celestia and Luna barring the door with their wings.
nikidash Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
And i just noticed how Carrot's eyes turned blue. Ice blue.
Onyxjew944 Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2013
And I only just noticed the wonderbolt in the carving.

I... don't have a very good feeling of this....
AgentofTheScourge Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
the orange pony in the front reminds me of a archerus deathcharger in world of warcraft with the blue stuff coming off her hooves
xXHollowLittleSoulXx Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have a feeling that this ghost mare is not such a good person....................

I'm shocked, how much it is beautiful and interesting.
ladyepic247 Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012
Very Pretty :)
JetPowerFIE Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Just noticed the statues of Celestia and Luna guarding the doors. So stoic. :iconrdglassesplz:

Why's Carrot Top's hoof glowing? (Foreshadowing?)
attack193 Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2012
LOL! Derpy looks so indignant! Great work as always! =D
KateVunza Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012
Derpy looks suspicious. I don't blame her; the whole ordeal has been rather unnerving, and can you trust a ghost that takes you clear across a haunted river to a golden doorway that's looking at you with a big blue ghostly eye?
Wynterhawke07 Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Anyone notice the eye on the door glowing?
cobeoe Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012

Enmar123 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012
this reminds me of skyrim!
is there a story behind this, like an actual fic?
that would be neat
Enmar123 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012
nasty buggers...

Also splendid work!
Chickenwhite Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ooohhh, this is so amazing! Can't wait for the next part!

The door is looking at them. Oh no, lookout~! (Is that a Wonderbolt?)
BB-K Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ooo! Look at the blue lights. :o And Derpy wants it too though.
Charlesdeleroy Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012
DERPY!!! You have to realize what's happening!!! She's gonna suck Carrot's soul out or eat her or something really bad!!! Stab the evil pony with a vorpal sword or cold iron blade or SOMETHING!!!

Old-PaleoClipper Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Vorpal Sword- never thought I would see that reference on a pony image. You should win something, though I'm not sure what.

Wait, is that a pony-sona I see?
Charlesdeleroy Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012
Heh, I thought of using a Vorpal sword long ago... TO KILL DISCORD!!! Think carefully: his chaos, his nonsense and madness, the misleading riddles... exactly what one might think of a certain evil monster from Wonderland who had to be cut down via snicker-snack... ;3

Well, not so much a ponysona as one of my 6 OCs: Fleece, Cat's Claw, Helix, Crying Shame, Bunsen, and Tawny Pride. Bunsen or Helix would be the two closest to a 'ponysona'... though which one depends on the level of insanity I'm feeling on a particular day. ;3
BrutalityInc Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012
Colours, style, everything, features like the murals on the wall and that gate design seems to tell part of the overall story. Overall this is a very complex, stunning piece of art. Well done again!

Derpy, Carrot, really, don't trust that mule...
Fairy-Slayer Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012
Ah, more clues to their ultimate destination (or disaster) as their odd yet charming hostess leads them to a very special inner sanctum. Carrot Top is still so smitten with her that she can't think of anything else, especially as she feels the warmth of both the chained pony's smile, sly as it may be, and how she's considerately keeping the little redhead warm with her tail. Maybe also to keep her from slipping on those icy hoofprints, which seem to have gotten stuck on the little pony's shoes as well.

Derpy's suspicions are very much warranted as the icy mists flow up the steps. (And is that one shoeprint looks like it's giving her a rude gesture? It would explain why she's visibly bristling with annoyance, but nah. ;) ) Along with that, the great carvings seem to tell the tale of some ancient forces of disharmony in an icy past. Only the warmth of the sealed door with the princesses, themselves in harmony while blocking the door with their wings. The sad figures on the lower part of the decorations, like the walls, would probably give Carrot Top some pause if she wasn't so enraptured – plus the icy eye on the top figure, with a semi-familiar looking crown and a mane suggestive of yet other creatures, is waiting in happy anticipation for the two guests to reach the threshold. At least one is smiling, but I wonder if the one under colonnade-Luna's wing would look as happy as the bright-eyed face if Derpy was also going with the flow.

Anyway, so much beauty and amazement in this wonderfully detailed chamber, despite the overall icy feeling. At least the Princesses and the door they're guarding give off a warm glow, but along with making their serious faces and grand poses stand out I have a feeling that the "heat" there serves another, extremely important purpose.

I'm sensing a bad end for Carrot top...and looking at the wall art...this isnt going to be pretty >.<

But great artwork! The lighting makes it look mysterious yet ominous at the same time! I'm loving the ice on the steps.
Cant wait to see the next wonderful art work! :D
Telaros Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012
Is she like Queen of teh Windegos? O.o Man Carrot is deeply hypnotized... I wonder how and if they will even make it out of this mess.
MrFulp Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
This whole journey is so magical and fantastic

This is just oozing with "fantasy" and "dreams" :D

Hopefully not a Bad End. :<
