Commission - Loyalty unflinchingby JackJacko-Eponymous

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

This is the second commission I made for ~NittanyKitty and represents a scene of a story she is writing. Rainbow Dash and Applejack have been kidnapped by Chrysalis, who tries to attack an already ill Applejack to feed off RD's emotional pain with her newfound vampiric ability... But Rainbow Dash frees herself and stands against her with the help of the Element of Loyalty!

Someone may think the background looks familiar... Well, I did take inspiration from a great (and a bit old) videogame for it! So let's play a little game and do write your guesses in the comments if you want! Hint: the recent news of a certain great company closing down another certain game developing company is very related :meow:

PS: RD is not missing a wing. The fact is her right wing isn't spread open (and in a mighty example of bad planning got hidden behind the halo of the Element of Loyalty o3o), while her left one is sprained and pokes out like that.

I once did do commissions, but I stopped since I started PhD and I couldn't reliably work on illustration anymore. I do some rare requests with absurdly long delivery times, but that's pretty much it. I'm sorry (I really am, believe me :( ).

I don't know if ~NittanyKitty has finished her story yet! Do send her a note, I'm sure she will be happy to give you the link if it's available.

To me it looks like Wind Waker, though I wonder if it might not be more Twilight Princess (which I have not had the chance to play).


 


The twisted perspective works well in this.

I say Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess is the background. Anyway, good job.

I really like this picture, well done. The style of art is very nice and comic book-y, I think. Makes it look more intense. Nice. :) The background also makes me think of the movie Atlantis, with all the cool glowy designs and stuff.
I've always had this head-canon where AJ and RD have been best friends since living in Ponyville, and now that they have the whole Elements of Harmony thing going on, they're best friends with the rest of the Mane 6 as well. However, their friendship in particular is a closer one than it would be between, say, RD and Twilight, or AJ and Fluttershy.
All of that to say, I appreciate this art of RD and AJ that represents them in a situation where one friend is courageously defending another, rather than them being a couple, even if that is what the fanfic depicts them as; it isn't out to read, so I obviously can't speak for the author. It's just difficult to find any pictures of AJ and RD that aren't a ship pairing picture (I have tried, but some search tags make me wary because Internet). I also relate these two to the relationship I have with my own best friend, so the shipping pictures of them are honestly just awkward to me. :shrug:
Guess that can't be helped. To each their own, yeah? Anyway. Like I said, very nice art. :)

Thanks for the appreciation :meow:
I too am a bit sceptic about shipping in general... Then again, I'm all pro canon (even though I appreciate fanon when it intervenes where canon leaves some blanks).

Cool. but still why does it seem like Dash would only be loyal to AJ? i noticed that in these fanworks that people like to make her seem like she only has loyalty towards Applejack. then again its how it looks to me doesn't necessarily mean its true.

Chrysalis: "Well...isn't that interesting? I've never seen an Element necklace activate on its own before."

Rainbow Dash: "Enjoy it, you bug-eyed witch. It'll be the last thing you see!"

Chrysalis: *sigh* "Must you be so cliche'd? I doubt you know how to control that necklace without the others. You could end up killing us both."

Rainbow Dash (in a completely calm tone): "I'll gamble that."

*ROUND 1! FIGHT!*

Eeenope, it was an Indiana Jones game, but it was released in 1992! A game from the SCUMM era like the early Monkey Island games you mentioned :3

A quick Wikipedia search shows that as The Fate of Atlantis. I was closer on my first guess. :shrug:

Or... Maybe the Disney/Lucas Arts thing was a long running conspiracy that began with the subtle acquisition of their imagery ò_ò (dun dun duuuuun).
