A Small Measure of Peace by Atlur A Small Measure of Peace by Atlur
So, something a bit old, but it's something, right? I'd been meaning to post this here for a while, but it just... spaced my mind. Anyway, back in January, Equestria Daily had a mini Artist Training Grounds event, this time with a different sort of spin on it. There was a little ongoing story that Phoe wrote, and the themes were all based around that. It was a very transitional time for me, and as a result, I was only able to finish 3 of the 5 pictures during the event, but I did eventually go back and finish the last two. For whatever reason, I got it in my head to make them all featuring background ponies, all be based on a singular color theme, and all featuring ponies in different sorts of armor. I also avoided showing their eyes until the last day, because it seemed significant at the time. Anyway, I compiled them all into one image, since I did have sort of a running theme going on. I like how they look together, mostly.

Here's a list of the themes, for the record:
Day One: Draw a pony in armor
Day Two: Draw a pony in training
Day Three: Draw a pony dueling
Day Four: Draw a pony on a rescue mission
Day Five: Draw a pony coming home

And nopony was lost that day
Very nice. Love the art style you've employed here. Agree that this looks like some pony RPG that needs to happen, although I am also reminded of some of the adventure animes also. Panel 2 in particular reminds me of Outlaw Star. I think it might be the color schemes invoked.

I can't help but notice how similar these look to Dragon Fable/AE Games...

I'm probably wrong though...

But nonetheless very good work :#1:

Entirely coincidental, but I do certainly see the resemblance. Funny how that works out.

And thank you!
Nice. i like it.
And I know it's gonna be SO AWESOME!!! /)^3^(\
Ok, I can see a fanfiction being written about this. Talk to someone and get it done, CAUSE I WANT TO READ IT!!!
So Roseluck, Vinyl Scratch, Cloud kicker, Carrot top, and Lyra being awesome?
I can get behind that.

The first pony reminds me of Cecil as a dark knight.

I really love Final Fantasy-style dark knights, so that's what I based her armor off of. Clearly that shows through, hah. :)
