War of the Equestria by Ziom05 War of the Equestria by Ziom05
Hello! :)

Well, what can I say. It is just...


The battle between Changelings Swarm and Crystal Ponies, lead by King Sombra. I always knew that there is hidden potential of dark character. And what do you think about Chrytion - The Ruler of Changelings?

Based on cartoon show "My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic".

Also check my video, about painting process of that picture: [link] with cool music by :iconthecarbonmaestro:

Yay, critique time!

Wow. Where do I start?

First off, well done fitting everything in! Its really difficult to portray something so large in such a small the same time, good job managing space. It feels large, yet not cramped, it feels lime you can sit in the picture

Second, very nice hse of effects.the warm glow brings out a sence of a holy presence there, as if a god is watching over everything.i also like tje subtle but important effects such as the glow on sombras' eyes.

And HOLY S*ITTHE DETAIL! you went way out of your to include EVERY little detail in the Armor, the dragon, and evwn the changeling's armor.Very good job.

I appoligize in advance for any weird grammar mistakes, just got a new phone and the keyboard is bigger than my old one :D

Oh dear... the massive scale of this work is breathtaking.

There are only a few things I could think of that could throw us off a little bit.

See the soldiers on the very bottom right corner? I can't get a sense of depth on their head so their faces looks a bit like a man with a big fat upturned-nose.

And, if you look very closely at the changeling swarm in the background, I can notice repeated elements. Same leg poses, same leg shapes... Time constraints? Sure, but it's a funny observation.

I also wonder if white-colored highlights is the best choice as something in the back of my head tells me that it's wrong by principle. I see an orange-colored sunlight if anything, soo....

But mostly, they're probably little things that don't totally ruin this piece as the sense scale this creates is more than enough to make it one of the best fan art I've seen. If I can give a more useful critique, there's plenty for me to learn.

This is the best mlp theme piece of art I've ever seen. I'm not a brony, but I love the idea of Fictional wars. I am lost for words, it's just so epic.

Shouldn't it be War of the Crystal Empire? And Chrytion the prince? It seems there aren't a whole lot of queens or kings in equestria.

This is an awesome page. I really like the crystal army and the dragon was a nice touch

me encanta la cantidad de detalles que tiene y esa iluminación que le diste atrás del dragón y de el rey sombra :)

Gotta say that only Sabaton's "Primo Victoria"… suits this picture.
