Commission - Kindred spirits will always fightby JackJacko-Eponymous

Fan Art / Cartoons & Comics / Digital / Movies & TV©2013-2015 JackJacko-Eponymous
Hello everybody!

This is the commission I made for ~Zantsuki, and represents the protagonists of his series of fanfics, All that Glitters is Gold, which you can find at this [link]. Go read it, it's really quite brilliant!

The picture represents a typical noon of the Yoshiwara Street in Canterlot for our three freelancers: Fool's Gold, Short Fuse and Ambra. Penniless as usual, they walk down the street arguing where they should try to find work in order to pay the month's rent :meow:

As the theme of the fanfics themselves (and, by extension, of the picture) is heavily influenced by japanese comics and cartoons, I tried to style the picture as if it was a frame taken out of an anime. I really hope I succeeded, at least to some degree!

Very well done! It actually reminded me of the animation style of the Avatar: The Last Airbender series. Heh, to be quite honest, I was looking for the names "Ang, Sokka, and Catara" when I began reading the description! Buuuuuuut it's a brilliant concept!

You drew ponies in kimono's in a yoshiwara looking district. That deserves all the bits. I think that you went from floor sweeping to Zeus

Oh man, this looks really amazing!

And also, this did remind me of Samurai Champloo! I think it's because of the way you colored this piece... and maybe the fact that the setting is ancient Japan.

Wonderful work on this. I didn't read the story, but your ponies as japanese warriors really look great.

Gosh! Those ponies were cross-overed, turn into fighters or any epic stories so much it's incredible. Why do you think they are so fun to turn them into something out of the show like you did? Their simple but wonderful design, the simple fact that they have profound personnalities or just that they are ponies and that you can? I'm just curious.

Thank you! As for your question, I'd say for the two first reason you stated: their awesome design is simply extremely fun to play with, and their personalities are profound enough to make any new character seem possible.

And yet there are a lot of people who hate our beloved ponies.

Must the effect of their invasion on the net that touched the nerves of other cartoons fans and artists. Well, they will have to deal with it or watch a episode to understand the love we have for the show and the characters. Until then, OCs gallore!

I know you've heard it enough already, but this is extremely reminiscent of Samurai Champloo. In fact, were it not for the castle in the background, it would probably be a dead ringer for a crossover.
