Episode art here we go, another week, another piece. This time one with quite a bit of action I'd say. Oh, and big (bigger) beasts hehe.

The moment that scene happened, I knew I'd probably end up doing that. It having the bonus of a large scale creature, even though I sized it a bit, but also Cadance. First time making her in pony form!

She had good addition to the episode as well, she acted quite nice in the end. Nice to see they put the spotlight on her for a bit, she was falling a bit behind.

Anyhow, great fun making this one. I now realise I kinda missed doing a large scale piece. Dutch angle returned as well, action, spinning, ponies. fun

Hope y'all are enjoying the weekly episode art :)

Approx time: 7 hours

I have to give it to ya, you did an excellent job with this. The way you captured the movement of the Tatzylwurm was expertly done, and the dutch angle really helped to convey the feeling of action. Twilight's and Cadence's expressions were done very well considering they're so small compared to the worm. The worm itself was very expertly done as well. You really took the illusion of perspective and distance with its body, like there's plenty of detail in the front part because it's closer, and less and less detail as it flows farther and farther away and gets blurry because of its twisting movement. And best of all, there isn't a center focused subject matter anywhere.
What do you think?

when I first watched the episode, I didn't realize that the Tatzlwurm was based off of an actual mythical animal from Japanese mythology. Knowing that now gives me hope that the trend will continue, especially since season 5 has been hinted to take place at least in part outside the realm of Equestria.

fantastic piece of art and I look forward to more like it.

I swear, if Discord puts my Twilight in that kind of danger again, he's gonna get Soldier 35's proper discipline! Twilight gets hurt, I WILL hurt him back!

Awww, Twi!  Cadance!  It just wants to hug you!

With its tentacles...

Like in those Japanese comics...

*Twilight and Cadance increase fire power!*
