Star Crossed Ponies cover by MillenniumFalsehood Star Crossed Ponies cover by MillenniumFalsehood
Twilight Sparkle, Princess Celestia's most trusted student and most powerful unicorn in all of Equestria, versus Emperor Palpatine, ruler of the Galactic Empire and the most powerful Dark Lord of the Sith to have ever existed!!

:iconemperorpalpatineplz: :icontwilightrapeface:

Who will win? Twilight, of course! :icontwilightwasrightplz: The good guys always win! :iconnoddingtwilightplz:

Anyhoo, this is the cover for my fanfic, and yes, this scene will eventually take place. I'm hoping that it will work on FiMFiction's cover art function, and that it will help get more attention for the story. This piece of art has been on my virtual drawing board for over a week! It wouldn't have taken so long, but if you read my journal entry several days ago you would know why: my computer kept shutting me out of MyPaint, and the program wouldn't let me save. I think it was a combination of some sort of virus and the fact that MyPaint is supposed to be used on a Linux OS and I use Windows. It's a great program, no doubt about it, but I don't want to fool around with another OS, so I downloaded GIMP 2 (thanks to all the people who suggested it!). It's a lot better than I remember (either that or I'm just getting better at painting . . .). I sat down yesterday evening and worked all through the night to get this done.

This is my first digital painting; please be gentle. ;)

Great work. The colors are nice and the shadows very well. The oppressive light is perfect.

www.fimfiction.net/story/43117… There you go. :) I haven't written the scene in question; it's the climax of a rather long story and I haven't reached that point yet.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention: as he's blasting Twilight, I imagine him chuckling exactly the same as he did right before he said, "Perhaps you refer to the imminent attack of your Rebel fleet?" :)

Well, I hate to admit it, but if Twi will not get some help from frends, like RIGHT NOW, she's toasted. Dark Lord Of The Sith is something of a Celestia's powerlevel.

Luke Skywalker managed to survive (mainly because of his father, but still . . .). I think since the Emperor would probably be toying with her at this point, she'd be able to withstand his blasts long enough to think of something. What she would think of is anyone's guess at this point, but I'm working on that. ;)

Well, I talked not about her death, but about her defeat. Palpy not necessarily wants to kill her, he can find use for a sith unicorn.)

Go, Twilight! You got this! :w00t:

This has got to be the most epic piece you’ve ever done, hands down! I’m just amazed at the sheer awesomeness of it all; the scene itself, the emotion conveyed, and the coloring, lighting, and texture! You have done an excellent job, my friend! :clap:

I really want to revisit this piece in the future, though. The perspective is way off, and I forgot to add his throne. I'm really glad you like it, though! :)

Well, it didn't; MyPaint is a freeware program that mimics PaintShopPro's tools, which I ditched for GIMP 2. ;)

Nevertheless, thanks! :D

Heheh, yeah, I was quite confused in the comment on your journal post when you said it was really unintuitive and good for touching up, but not drawing stuff :p

You probably have a panel turned on that you didn't before, lol.

Lol, Inkscape is a vector program. Maybe you're thinking of photoscape? That's a great touch-up editor with no actual painting ability.

:iconmillenniumfalsehood:
MillenniumFalsehood Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2013
No, I'm pretty sure it was Inkscape. The fact that I didn't understand the tools at the time makes me think it was probably a vector-based program.
