Commission - Days of Future Passed by JackJacko-Eponymous Commission - Days of Future Passed by JackJacko-Eponymous
Hello everybody!

This is a commission I made for =Valinye, and represents a moment in the story he collected and wrote and that you can find at this [link].
The alicorn Aurora struggles as she tries to keep the portal to the Wasteland open, while the Canis Celestialis and one of her unicorn subjects stand at her side (all right, the story is more complex than that, so do hit the link for the full recount :meow:).
The unicorn herself is an OC I kind of adopted... I have some names floating for her, but nothing fixed yet. I do have palette, mark and a back-story for her though, so I'll probably make a reference page one of these days :meow:

Welp, I hope you enjoy it!

How Moody. How Bluesy.

I'll be disappointed if that group doesn't call itself "The Knights in White Satin".

This is crazy awesome. The color palette gives such a dark and magical feel, but the best is how you can actually see the portal spinning and making her mane and dust move. The effect is really, really cool.

Ha, I wish! But to be honest, this wasteland is not *that* wasteland. I think this work of mine gave a couple headaches to Valinye trying to explain the difference to the various people asking :meow:

The trick, I find, is to write from the end. Put down in words how you want everything to end up for the characters, and then simply write them to that point.

Another trick is to figure out the "engine" of your story, get as much detail on it as possible, and write down a few ways your antagonists and protagonists use it to further their goals. This can be anything from a ring (Lord of the Rings) to magical portals (Roanoak) - and anything in between!

And all good stories have strife - some sort of antagonist (character, environment, what have you) that gives the protagonists motion. The French call it "raison d'Ítre" - reason for existence - A hero cannot be a hero if there is nothing to overcome. :)

With the end, the engine, and the strife - the rest is merely connecting the dots with words.
