A revisit of a recent coloration of *bunnimation
's. This is a battle scene from the MLP:FiM fanfic Starstruck
. It features Twilight Sparkle very easily defending herself from the wild but highly powerful onslaught of the antagonist, Gina.
It's sort of a battle of concentration vs brute force. It's also on top of a speeding train going over a bridge. Rainbow Dash is also somewhere off frame pulling her head out of a tree trunk and spitting out ants.
Well, I've gotta be honest. Every time I'd open up my dA page, and saw that last Twilight vs Gina coloration, I kinda grimaced a bit. I couldn't quite put a finger on why, but a little voice in my head suddenly suggested that I darken it a lot more and stop trying to make it so gosh darned bubbly.
Thing is, I know when this scene takes place. It's winter. Late afternoon. Throughout the narrative, the sky is constantly described as a deep ominous orange, the kind of orange that looms and drapes over you like compounding guilt. It's the sky of the incoming evil, the incoming conflict; it is the sky of judgment day.It's how the sky laments its own dismay,
The sky that keeps benevolence at bay.
Dusk's final grasp before passing way,
They emerge in droves, and come out to play.
So I reworked it and recolored some parts. I also narrowed it a smidge however I could so now it's at 1920x1080 wallpaper resolution if you guys happen to want it for your desktop.My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
