Where did I go wrong... by skyrore1999 Where did I go wrong... by skyrore1999
this picture was inspired by two things, one the Mlp Season 4 premiere when Twilight sees into the past, and sees Celestia and Nightmare moon fighting, (it just hit me how hard it must have been for Celestia to Banish her sister for so long, I have a little sister and I know I could never do that) It was powerful even in that very childish cartoon way, I don't know, it just struck me as profound. 

The second thing was this song www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSWz3o… somehow it fit the picture very well and I couldn't stop listening to it.  
 
On an artistic note I tired a bunch of new tricks on this picture, and I am very pleased with the result, (specifically the hair) it was fun! I may do one with nightmare Moon sometime in the future, as a part 2 to this picture.

Sound the Bugle Now.
Play it just for me.
As the seasons change, remember how I used to be.
Now I can't go on, I can't even start.
I've got nothing left, just an empty heart. 
I'm a soldier, wounded so I must give up the fight.
There's nothing more, for me, lead me away.
Or leave me lyin' here. 
Sound the Bugle now. 
Tell them I don't care.
There's not a road I know, that leads to anywhere.
Without a light of fear that I will stumble in the dark.
Lay right down, decide not to go on. 
Then from on high, somewhere in the distance.
There's a voice that calls Remember who you are.
If you loose yourself, your courage soon will follow. 
So be strong tonight, and remember who you are. 
You're a soldier, now.
Fighting in a battle.
To be free once more.
Yeah, that's worth fighting for.


"Sound the bugle" Song by Bryan Adams

Thank you very much, and it's not that I hate celestia or anything, but I just thought that scene was worth re-drawing but in a bit of a more powerful way

I actually drew this picture because when I stumbled upon this song after years of not hearing it, and this somehow was all I could picture going with it.

Also, the "Sound the Bugle Now" poem.
It isn't credited to anyone... Is it yours?

:iconskyrore1999:
skyrore1999 Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No it's not, in the description the song I put the link to is the poem, it's just the lyrics to the song, I apologize for the confusion I'll go fix that.

Thank you very much! (p.s., I fixed the 'poem' thing, I didn't notice that I didn't credit him before, I just assumed anyone who read the description would follow the link and just see the lyrics)

I clicked the link and thought it was going to be "How to Save a Life." I guess I failed at guessing, haha... 


...but back to the art at hand. I love it-- it screams emotion at me, and I like art that can do that.
