Cruel Gods by Sakuyamon Cruel Gods by Sakuyamon
From on high, the gods make sport of the mortals who toil below them. None know the cruelty of these beings better than Twilight Sparkle, a beautiful magician who was torn away from her friends by the godsí divine hands. Granted immortality, Twilight Sparkle now whiles away her days in an inescapable miniature garden for the amusement of the gods, particularly Celestia. But the gods themselves are no strangers to the boredom of eternal life, and as Twilight Sparkle quickly discovers, they will do anything to keep themselves entertained, both at her expense and at one anotherís.

I read this manga called "Olimpos" a while ago, its quite philosophical and a bit hard to understand but I felt like Twilight and Celestia could easily be transfered onto Ganymede and Apollo. Luna could easily be either Hades or Artemis, and Fausticorn would easily replace Zeus.
After all the rumours about Twilight becoming an Alicorn herself, it feels like its even more fitting.

Rainbows and sunshine and starlight and ponies... and fire and power and the cosmic terror which has always struck those who have contemplated for too long on the immensity of time.

I love My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic for what it is... and I also love how just a little twisting can take it into a far larger, scarier, even profound, place.  That this piece is simply gorgeous to just look at makes it even better.  Well done.

Love the multiple-winged "Fausticorn" (if that is a word) at the top.
Awesome! :salute:

I'm not fond of the whole "The princesses are really almighty giant poopie butts" angle, but I can always set aside my feelings for kickbutt art. I love how this painting has a story behind it!

Leur poses et leur anatomies sont réussis, c'est incroyablement détaillés, les couleurs sont à couper le souffle tellement elles sont magnifiques. Les ombres rendent vraiment bien.

 

Une vraie œuvre d'art. ^^

youtu.be/G2OGYMSfDfM This music gave an image. Now Don't try and take this too seriously, hear me out. If/when they will issue in a 5th season, It would follow a single cohesive story of Twilight fighting the cutie mark system, overthrowing the princess sisters, eventually meeting her god, fighting her god, becoming said god, and because she was bored, reworked the universe so she still be with her friends while still keeping the benefits of being god. I know It's most unlikely but a thought is a thought.

Is it bad that I look at Fausticorn in this pic and all I can hear in my head is the "One-Winged Angel" theme from Final Fantasy VII? Lol, XD
