because it’s very difficult for me to let go and move on, (I have never told a story before, let alone some sort of a comic for that matter and it feels very special to me), here is a bonus! I hope you enjoyed it.

That feeling is very real!! And it will fade and even out with time, and things will return to normalcy!
Well, you are in luck, because I could use some advice on some related stuff, and that should be easier than making content yourself, right?
Click here for forum thread. And yes, Anonymous posts DO work.
It’s all good! I took it as you were just spring boarding off of my comment to talk to the artist, and I wholeheartedly agree with you!
Ugh… just got done clarifying that. I will take your cheers, but hope you weren’t fooled by my error into thinking I was talking to you about continuing this work?
Yeah, I could see that working, but if there wasn’t a good place to put it then there wasn’t a good place to put it.

Concurred. I want to be clear that if the artist wanted to tell a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT story at this time, or continue doing happy epilogues to this one I would be cheering without reservation. Heck, if they have a different art style in them, they could get working on that “X-men VS Magneto” (or whatever) style action picture/series I described.

I actually had a scrapped scene that I didn’t know where to fit into the story of Sunny opening up the alicorn mirror while she’s in the hospital, asking the “mirror me” for guidance. Then Opaline catches a glimpse of Sunny and fills with twisted joy. She calls Misty over to see, telling her that Sunny is already destroying her own self and that they’re not even going to have to do anything. Sunny is anorexic. Misty, who doesn’t have much mental health knowledge due to being sheltered,asks her what that word means because she was admittedly growing concerned over her gaunt appearance. Opaline brushes it off, and would probably say something along these lines; “She’s probably insecure about something and starving herself because of it. Seems fitting. I’ll give her 2 weeks at most. Truly would have been funny if it weren’t so sad.”
About 15 hours ago I wrote some intense words in a comment on an earlier image on this series, motivated by genuine concern for you.
Keep doing what you are doing.
I like this image aesthetically, narratively, etc.
To G5 artists in general (but LESS so to this particular artist because this style doesn’t seem suitable) :
I tried to search this site for an image of the Mane 5 (or just Sunny) throwing down against Opaline as I felt such an image would make a good one to link as an unofficial epilogue to this story as part of the dramatic tension here was “This leaves all of Ponydom vulnerable to Opaline stealing their newly recovered magic and then probably performing further evil with it.”.
The best I could find was this:

While that is a masterful imitation of the the style of a cover from the comics and has that emotional intensity, it merely implies imminent violence, rather than actually depicting it even to the level of Rarity kicking the manticore in the face or Twilight and Tirek altering the local topography with their clash. And that is not even counting the OPTIONS (not always useful to employ, but OPTIONS) opened up by not having to avoid showing blood etc.
your current filter.
G5 artists, why you no epic fight scenes?
