Civil war of Equestria - Discord VS Celestia by smilecat2501 Civil war of Equestria - Discord VS Celestia by smilecat2501
History is always written by the victors.
You win, it is a revolution; you lose, it is a rebellion.

-----

Discord is depicted as a evil figure in Equestria official setting. But here I was trying to make him into a more positive character who simply failed the game of throne. I struggled for a while if I should humanize these two character.

And, it seems Discord's humanized fan art often been set as a middle age gentlemen, so I decide to see if it's possible to build him as a figure of ruler and warrior while preserving the original character design as much as possible.

As to Celestia, I tried to use Byzantine clothing - it seems to be the only reign that survived for a thousand years in real history.

When I finished the work and show other's my result, they said "well, this looks familiar... just like 40K when Emperor fights Horus"

"..........you're right, I didn't realize that before" I replied.

Anyway, I was trying to finish the rest of MLP season 2 after my friends' continued recommendation. To some extent, I could realize why they worship the series.
