Oh my. Oh my, oh my.

It's really hard to describe the feelings that inspire when I see a picture like this.

First and foremost, it's beautifully well done. The characters, I'm assuming completely original, are brilliantly detailed. They all look different, yet all match the theme that you were going for. The background fits very well in the message you're trying to convey. Celestia and Luna both look well drawn, though my only complaint is that they don't look quite like the Celestia and Luna that we're used to seeing. Obviously that's because this is the past, but a little more likeness would have been good.

But apart from the art, the story that this drawing tells is just phenomenal. My mind is racing thinking of all the back story behind every single little detail, from the torn and beaten Celestia and Luna, to the destroyed background and to the five different element characters. I can envision nearly endless stories just by looking at each individual aspect of the drawing; I can only imagine what you were thinking as you drew it.

I can't honestly think of any negative thing to say. This is going up on my desktop, and I doubt it'll get replaced for quite a while. Very good work.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR

Wow, this is, amazing. Very reminiscent of World of Warcraft....

And please pardon my grammar and spelling, it ain't so gud.

I have never written a critique but this, this deserves so much praise.

The characters are just, well phenomenally well drawn, the expressions on their faces and the amount of detail put into their outfits is mind blowing to say the least.

And the story, before reading your description of the characters my mind was racing to figure out why this situation turned out how it is. I'm wondering what happened to our faithful heroes? Who are our heroes in the picture? How are they going to stop the evil that they obviously must confront?

And yet, even after reading your synopsis, I'm even more interested... I want to know how they plan to stop Discord, why Celestia and Luna are possibly wounded or stranded.

You have taken a still frame, a image, and have drawn the viewer into a magical world. A simple image, more creative than some two hour films. Truly, very impressive.

Like another critic, this will be on my wall, for a long, long, time. You sir, have a new watcher.

My favorite character is Pinkie Pie, so definitely Surprise. The Doctor is a close second, and Pallanen is third.

Everyone is talking about The Doctor wielding a gun and the fact that the Element of laughter is a skeloton and I'm just sitting here admiring the Dark Souls, Dragonslayer Ornstein reference.
gamer4COD Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
Only one problem with this, not how Doctot Whooves is in the past, not the fact he has a gun-he never needs a gun when he has his sonic screwdriver,just the fact that the Doctor is unquestionably loyal, but he has abandoned and lost almost every companion he ever had before and after being ponyfied
TNTDisco Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2015
It looks awesome, don't question it XD

Though you're right.
Even though he knows that his companions usually always "die" at some point (or something similar), he still goes and gets a new one Asap :(

Surprise!! I am a dummy! 

I agree the characters are quite unique and the art is astonishing!
Morlon01 Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2015  Hobbyist
This would make for an AWESOME fanfiction (or comic, yes :D). Too bad, I'm too much of a lazy bum to write the fanfiction myself.
I really like Pallanen Livekeeper (guess I'm attracted to kindness, since Fluttershy is best pony), he really does look kind to the core. But the other characters also look very awesome, unique and true to their description. The doctor was a surprise though.
caballero-nocturno Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2015
I love it!
For some reason this reminds me of World of Warcraft.  

Fenix the Dragonslayer - Human
Pallanen Lifekeeper - Night Elf
Doctor Hooves - Gnome
Ban Dragonheart - Tauren
Surprise - Undead

I legitimately thought this was a mlp wow crossover at first.

The Skeleton is the Element of laughter?


Am I the only one who really wants to hear some of his jokes.
Morlon01 Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2015  Hobbyist
His/her jokes probably go like:

"I feel so exhausted, I think, my lungs are falling out. ...oh, but I don't have lungs anymore, Yohohohoho!"
aymen11 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2014
I dont know why but I expected dr whooves to be the element of laughter not the pony that looks like the grim reaper still a funny choice
PeterMorin Featured By Owner Edited May 19, 2015
Well... At least Surprise's smile will stay forever.

I wonder how and why the ancients decided to give elements to Celestia and Luna...
aymen11 Featured By Owner May 20, 2015
maybe you should ask the artist

SnapCentino Featured By Owner Edited Dec 17, 2014  Professional Writer
Well, I'm in love.

I think Surprise is my favorite, if only for the sheer hilarity that an undead skeleton is the Element of Laughter.
Yakshi7 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014
There is a WoW joke to be made here...
World of ponies?
Elemants of Warcraft ?
nikolaj1998 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014
okay doctor whooves why did you never tell me you became the element of loyalty during your last litle time travel trip

j03b0b0fd00m Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2014
I feel like Ornstein- I mean Fenix should be Loyalty, seeing as Philomena is still with Celestia over 1000 years later, and phoenixes are known for their loyalty. That would make Whooves Generosity, which also fits him pretty well, I think.

I love that you implied that doctor whooves is either a time traveller or at least long-lived, if not immortal.
