I showed this to my brother(who doesn't know about ponies) and he thought it was some kind of dragon. And I just said "LOLNOPE, this is a pony motherf*cker!" (That's actually what I said. Then he hit me lol)
It really reminds me of the Inheritance Cycle (which began with Eragon, if you don't know), with the picture of the dragons head facing the viewer. This is kind of what I imagined Galbatorix's dragon looked like, though it was never shown on a cover.
This is just so sick, the way his eyes burn into my soul and his nostrils and maw flare with fire.
This is my first critique, so I apologize if I do something wrong. This is an excellent picture; very detailed and striking. Those eyes reflecting evil are just indescribable. And that breath coming out of his mouth is amazing, Although I give it four stars in originality(because i've seen several pictures in this style), I must confess i would give it ten stars in impact and vision if I could. Picturing Discord as a real and evil threat contrasts with the real one, but this is a really interesting approach. This is one of the best pictures i've ever seen in my life. Great job!!!
The moment I saw this I thought "This reminds me of Diablo - was the artist trying to make him look like a dragon?" When I looked at the title, I knew I was waaaay off, but it's still got that vibe of promising death and destruction, while looking badass all at the same time. All I can say is that you are freaking awesome!

I feel your pain, this Ponyfiying thing gets more than annoying!!, but i don't think this pic here looks like anyting from this show. It looks more like a Dragons head if you ask me. I think it looks cool
A full-body shot of Discord in this style would just be epic. Alas, that would take quite a while, I can imagine. Nevertheless, this is a stunning image that seems to be barely connected to the My Little Pony franchise. Indeed, were I to direct someone to this, they would likely be quite shocked to learn where this character comes from~
