Twilight's Transition by rumblealex Twilight's Transition by rumblealex
Another one down!

I like Alicorn!Twi and I can't lie about it.

I would have liked to have a nice description for this one but I can't come up with anything relevant...

I originally had a completely different drawing planned but as always something happened and I finally decided to draw another similar idea I had instead of leaving the drawing where it was.

Shading/lighting.. I experimented a bit so it might be off or simply bad looking but hay, it's practice! At least I got something done!

-------
didn't check the time at all this time.
SAI
Rumby.

Edit: So many repetitions. I must learn to use synonyms more often...
Edit2: Thanks to the Anon that submitted my drawing to EqD :D

I think...this one may be worthy. Would you mind if I used this as a cover page to one of my stories?

Well, I suppose being a princess isn't all sparkles and glitter. It all depends how you imagine the situation in which she had to step up and take the place of one of the princesses.

But I guess now that there's a canon coronation the whole thing doesn't make much sense anymore.

Still, I can't help but wonder what kind of hardship she must be going through if she has to replace Celestia or Luna. I think her sad expression would be perfectly understandable given the circumstances.

Hmm I'm not sure what you're implying here. This drawing was made before Alicorn!Twi was confirmed by the staff so it wasn't 'planned'

Twilicorn is a very bad idea. The only way it could work is if it was some kind of temporary transformation or if it was some kind of power she could call up when she needs it, and if she becomes the next princess it raises a number of disturbing questions.

1. If she has to leave her friends, does that mean said friends were just stepping stones on her way to becoming an alicorn and mean nothing now?

2. If she doesn't, will the show focus on her newfound powers, meaning that a show about friendship is now focused exclusively on one character to the detriment of the others?

3. If no to question two, why even make her one in the first place?

I'm quite sure, if we are right about the alicorn thing at all, that the toy department at Hasbro decided they wanted Twilight a princess, so they told the writers to make her a princess. It's a marketing thing.

I hope we're wrong, because then the show is ruined and not worth watching.

Not necessarily. You're assuming it's going to be like one of those horrible fics with an alicorn Twilight. I believe Megan has the skill to make alicorn Twilight work and make it still good. Surely, some people are going to 'ragequit' over it, but that's what you call stubbornness. Does Twilight being an alicorn (she's already a princess with the powers of one) make that big a difference?

The show wouldn't be ruined.. It depends of your personal opinion only. If you don't like Alicorn!Twi because X or Y reason then okay, but that doesn't mean everybody share the same opinion you have. You'll believe the show is ruined and not worth watching anymore because of a change in the cast? I'm sorry to hear that.

I'll enjoy the show as much as I did before and still do today. Changes are what makes the world go forward...

Wat? Sorry but English isn't my first language, as written on my front page. Could you be a little more specific?

You want to bet that the show would be ruined because of Alicorn!Twi? I don't see how that makes your point valid ...

I'm no Hasbro. It's useless to ask those questions to me. All I did was draw Alicorn!Twi because... Well.. Because I felt like drawing her. There's no secret meaning or fancy theory behind this drawing, it's just me spending time on something I enjoy. Lol

Twilicorn: Oh Celestia no... no no no... this is terrible! Now all the fans are going to think I'm some terrible Mary Sue! It's not my fault! I just wanted to be a regular unicorn and live in Ponyville and have adventures saving Spike from Tirek and the Smooze... *blinks* Whoah... where the Tartarus did THAT come from? Great, now I'm having delusions!

I get the impression shes dealing with what it actually means to be an Alicorn. To be that powerful, the be that disconnected from the normal ponies.

"So you woke up today as someone else, different to who were when you went to bed. Now that's unfortunate, yes, but you still have a job to do. You'd best go and do it, before somepony notices it's not been done."

Twilicorn is at the very least a damn interesting idea, and I reckon this picture nicely sums up the most reasonable response to it. Misery and despondency! Goo'job!

It's very bad idea. The only way it could work is if it was some kind of temporary transformation or if it was some kind of power she could call up when she needs it (a la Captain Planet or something... Captain Magic?)

Thanks!

Though maybe it was a choice she made. Maybe she didn't woke up a fine morning suddenly as an Alicorn. Maybe it's a tough choice she made so Equestria could keep running. Who know what she sacrificed for Equestria when she made this decision? She have all the rights to be sad and devastated if she had to leave her life behind for the sake of a country but you are right, whatever happened, she have a job to do. A very difficult one...

I would love to write little bits of fiction to accompany each one of my drawings but it seems each time I try my brain suddenly forget how to English. There are no language barriers on a drawing so it's easier to express myself in a picture rather than in a text. :3
