Adventures in Ponyville cover by Ghostwalker2061 Adventures in Ponyville cover by Ghostwalker2061
Yes, people, I'm going there...I went there, came back, got a T-shirt.

Fluttershy may have tamed Deathwing, but it's Twilight who controls him. Scary thought.

This is a little joke cover for pretty much all the Deathwing in My Little Pony Friendship is Magic comics that I've been doing...

It started with this...which according to the 200 and growing favs, it's the funniest thing I've ever done in my life. It's hosted on a few Pony fan sites as well.



The second is a full comic page with Rainbow Dash trying to get the Stood in the Fire achievement.



While not as funny as Fluttershy, it's gotten a few giggles and being hosted on a couple of pony sites as well.

So, what the fuck am I doing mixing Deathwing with Ponies? I have this dude to blame...:iconcapnchryssalid: I found his famous fic being mentioned on TVtropes. And that's where these ideas came from. But instead of the Ponies coming to Azeroth, it's Azeroth's latest villain, the Black Dragon Aspect of Death (and Fatness) Neltharion aka Deathwing going to Equestria and falling under the care of Twilight Sparkle and her friends as a part of his reforming. The power of friendship will purge those evil Far Realm, tentacle monsters from his head! Or he'll be driven even more insane than ever before.

I decided to do Twilight Sparkle in more of my coloring style instead of the vector style I did with the other two. Makes the image more serious and equally creepy. Makes you think Twilight's got the power to do something like this huh? Princess Celestia, we've got a problem.

And yes, eat it, that's the Twilight book font! Slay me if you wish! I know...BLASPHEMER!

Edit Brightened it up a bit. Enjoy.

Aspect of death. Not Friendship. Death wing would destroy all of those 'pretty ponies' in one swoop. Keep my little pony to its self. Stop mixing it with other games.

1. First, Neltharion was not Deathwing for most of his life.  And he was the Earth-Warder far longer than the Aspect of Death.

2. Neltharion is not Deathwing. In my continuity, he's been redeemed, so he wouldn't do that.


3. There's nothing wrong with the crossover. It's cute, silly, and not entirely serious.  And a lot of other people think its fun.

4. Suggestions and constructive criticism are okay. Flat-out telling an artist not to do something is rude and a good way to have them ignore you entirely.

Twilight Sparkle: "No no, bad dragon! You do NOT incinerate Sugar Cube Corner!"
Deathwing: "But they ran out of those chocolate donuts with the sprinkles!"
TS: "That is not a good excuse, and you know it. Now say you're sorry to the Cakes."
DW: "I'm sorry... That I was not able to slay you along with your wretched baker-" *WHAP* "OW! I mean, I'm sorry I burnt down your bakery."
Cupcake: "Oh, well, okay then. Don't worry, Pinkie does this about every other month or so. Just... Not with molten rock dripping out of her body."
Pinkie Pie: "Ooooh! That's what I can do next time!"
Deathwing: "And I'm the one you feel the need to control with magic?"

Or hell, I did a group shot that showed all six ponies and Spike with Deathwing in one shot.

It looks like Twilight is battling an ungodly spawn of Tartarus. It's a beautiful picture with lots of detail that shows off just how small Twilight is in comparison to the colossus she's fighting.

Any hints as to how to get your stuff up at EQD? I've sent Seth and the gang a goodly amount of stuff in the past month and a half or so, and I've yet to ever see my stuff up there.

Although I'm sure they get 2 million pictures a day, that's gotta take awhile to go through.

I don't send any of my stuff to Equestria Daily. They choose my artwork because they like what I paint. Someone from there looks at what I create and thinks: "People should see this!" I don't do anything to tell them I've made a new image. The first of my images that was shown there, I didn't even know that the little e-paper even exist until someone gave me a link to the Drawfriend.

And I'm guessing what it is that they are looking for high quality artwork. Detail work, care, goes a little bit beyond average fanart of the ponies. Not all of my artwork gets in, but I've done something unique and interesting enough to automatically get it noticed by them.

One of the reason is because the image of Deathwing and the ponies are a parody of a fairly famous fanfiction. So famous it has its own TVtropes page. And I got the attention of the writer who did it. And that fic is also on Equestria Daily.

The other is, well, I'm cashing in on a popular game and mixing it with a popular sub-genre and both currently exist along side with each other. I mean, Deathwing's reemergence from Deepholm in the current XPac of World of Warcraft came in 2010, which coincided with the Ponies first appearance on the Hub. And since I know a marketing gimmick when I see one to get my own artwork out there...I mixed the two together. And now that's become my thing.

So, maybe don't spam their inbox with all your drawings, do something of quality and uniqueness in content and submit it to a group here on DA and then wait and see if they post that image up.

I don't know. They're the ones who make the call. Maybe it's not the content, but the skill level in which you make your images.

I mean, I've seen many people draw images of the ponies mixing it up with characters from games and shows that come from the early 60s. Like Doctor Who and his obvious pony incarnation Doctor Whooves.

There's a drawing of Luna looking like she belongs to the Hell's Angels.

And these images get on Equestria Daily. And the possible reason is because of the style and the quality of the image as well as content.

Look into what is popular out there and draw that and then make it high quality as well.

The people who like the Ponies also like the Evil Dead movies, the Batman animated series, World of Warcraft, Elder Scrolls and Skyrim....study what actually makes it into Equestria Daily, study what do those editors look for. What do these images have in common? Then, you'll find your answer as to why yours don't get in while the others do. Maybe it's not because they get a lot of images, maybe it's about they look for something particular about the image. What best represents the love of what Lauren Faust created? Is it some drawing that looks like a little kid drew it, or is it illustrator quality images that would be seen in game packagings and be featured at conventions.

Not saying that yours is, I've never seen yours. I don't know what you draw. But this will give you a hint. I don't know what background you come from when it comes to art. I'm coming from art school, graphic design and illustration background that focuses on presentable gallery quality art and harsh professors.

So, they're probably also looking for quality, not quantity.

If you look at what they feature on their Drawfriend, it'll give you some insight in what they actually look for.

CapnChryssalid Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2011
haha. No,no, I was just kidding about that. World of Ponycraft Deathwing is canon Deathwing for the most part. Their background with eachother is due to all being Titan constructs (the dragon Aspects being made out of Galakrond as per canon a short time before Celestia and Luna were created and attuned to their stellar Aspects). I tend to bend MLP lore a bit more than Warcraft lore in WoP... mostly because there is very little MLP lore so I don't have to worry about contradictions.

So they're contemporaries, like all the Aspects and Titanic Watchers.

Nel-Luna is next on your plate, eh? Well, I'm certainly looking forward to what you do with that. It is the only pony interaction I have (to date) in WoP, however brief it was. I wonder if the two of em will be up to no good? Mischievous kids!
