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?

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.

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.

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.
