New addition for my Season 6 Episode Art!
Season 6, Episode 11: Flutter Brutter
For more info on my episode art: MLP:FIM Season 5 Episode Art Streams

This episode heh. That was quite a sudden introduction to an entire family right at the beginning of the episode! That inclusion of Rainbow Dash, though, bwhahaha. The horse sounds, the reactions. Oh my gosh.
But the brother, some of his action were a bit over the line for me. Destroying other folk's stuff?! No... just no, c'mon, Zephyr plz. That hurt my feelings right there, the poor voices of the parents.

Aside from that, the rest of his behaviour can definitely make you peeved. But like was shown, that can be a protective shell to a deeper problem or issue. One that needed to be addressed. And the thing is, it's small steps that make it happen. Just like with many lessons, take small steps, keep moving forward, keep improving yourself. It's different for everyone, and everyone handles stuff in different ways, but there's almost always still a good valuable character underneath. Just needs some effort to reveal.

Overall, an interesting episode, little fun background details revealed, from the house, to the family, and little other Easter eggs.

Also, I don't upload a lot of Fluttershy pieces, so I wanted to at least include her. Winged the style a bit, though, but I partially referenced an older piece Apple Coated
Looking at how "fast" I finished this, I did feel like I didn't work as clean as I could, but heh... I guess it's one of those days?
Either way, hope y'all enjoyed this little adventure with little ponies again!

Approx Time: 8-9 hours

One aspect that I like about this piece is the lighting and shadowing. The way that the shadow is under their heads perfectly indicates where the light is shining from. I also love how you blurred out the background, that way, we can focus on the main subjects. What I especially love about this illustration is how much it tells you about "Flutter Brutter". If you never watched the episode, this picture would be a fantastic way to fill you in on what happened. Just from this picture alone, I can tell that it's about Fluttershy's brother who is charming, charismatic, but tends to be a bit lazy and hard to handle. It also helps that Fluttershy is looking at him stubbornly, implying that the conflict arises from some shenanigan her brother causes. This picture is so informative, that it could make for a great title card! Just add some text and voila! I don't really have any criticisms to give on this illustration. I guess I would say that Zephyr's five o'clock could be darkened a bit more, and that the fact that it's based on an episode detracts from the originality, but that's real all I can think of. All in all, it's a fine piece. It's funny, it has nice texture and coloring, and it lets you know what your in for if you watch "Flutter Brutter". Keep up the tremendous work, AssasinMonkey!

I'm gonna be honest here; it was about dang time they introduced Fluttershy's family to us. It took literally FIVE FRIGGIN SEASONS, but they FINALLY did it. Why it took them that long, I'll probably never know. 😑

Awesome work! As a Fluttershy fan, I really loved this episode. (I felt bad for her parents too, destroying years of collecting and a flower garden. For shame, Zephyr!!)

This is the same episode where "Peeved" is considered a swear word in Equestria (there was a mare who kept covering her foal's ears when Fluttershy was venting to Rainbow Dash.

Story of my life. 
My brother is even worse than that... he knows he doesnt try... you tell him so... - and he sticks to it, like the world would collapse if he did. <.<

I would trade him in for him - any time.

Love the art style and I loved the episode too! It was interesting to finally see Fluttershy's family. Also the interaction between her brother and Rainbow Dash... priceless! But I didn't listen (Fluttershy) PLZ

I love the expression from Fluttershy, I just want to pet her face!

I always want to pet her face though, Fluttershy is best pony (Don't worry, Applejack comes in at a close second). I was just waiting for her to flutter into your gallery sometime :p

Good job.

Did you happen to overlay a texture on this one, though?

Wow, those eyes are so detailed. They seem to draw me in closer. And it almost seems like she is breaking the 4th wall, but in a way that leaves it up to debate as to whether she is, or if it's just somepony taking her picture. She's looking at someone, but is it the watcher, or a pony?
Epic work sir. :+fav:

Ah yes, Flutters and her little brother Zephyr, also known as Slacker Pony, Lazy Slug, Freeloader Foal and The Jerk. He is so annoying and self-absorbed that he's entertaining. I see a lot of my younger self in him, minus the perpetual stubble beard.

Your artwork is amazing as always. Very photoreal and it pops right off the screen. :)

Fluttershy Clap 
This episode was certainly a step up from the previous week's massive disappointment and I also liked it much more than Newbie Dash. Yes, I'd say Dave Rapp has managed to redeem himself. This episode not only dealt with a problem that hadn't been dealt with in the show before, but also introduced a new character in a way that didn't seem like an asspull. Sure, we only just met Fluttershy's family now, but I loved how every character seemed to already know Zephyr Breeze when they interacted with him in the episode. That means he had either already met them before at some point or Fluttershy had talked about him off-screen and that's much more realistic than everyone suddenly acting surprised that Fluttershy has a brother they've never heard about. Twilight has lived in Ponyville for over five years now and all her friends have known each other even longer, so it would have been ridiculous if they'd only met or heard of Fluttershy's brother now.

Zephyr was a very unlikable character at first, but he grew on me in the end. He acted all confident when others asked him about his recent failures, but that's exactly what it was - an act. I lived with my mother until I was 20, so I could relate to Zephyr somewhat (although I'd like to think I wasn't as big of a pain as him) and who hasn't felt like quitting sometimes because they were afraid of failing? Also, since Fluttershy's parents seemed to be even bigger pushovers than their daughter, I completely understood why Zephyr had never learned to be independent.

Speaking of Fluttershy, she was fantastic in this episode. It seems all her assertiveness lessons have finally had a lasting effect and I really hope it will stay that way. I like Fluttershy just fine, but her learning the same lesson over and over again had become very boring and I'm glad that she seems to be past that now. That's why I think this was one of her greatest episodes ever. She knew she had to intervene on her parents' behalf and she spoke her mind, but she wasn't a bitch about it like she sometimes has been when she's taken her assertiveness too far. All her snide, passive-aggressive remarks to Zephyr were hilarious and it was touching how she really seemed to believe in him even though he kept disappointing her. That's real family love.

Rainbow Dash was great too. I always like her when she's not being, well, herself and acts nice and shows that she really cares. That said, I can't really blame her for bolting out on Fluttershy when Zephyr hit on her one too many times. I also can't blame her for shoving Zephyr into a thundercloud. He certainly had it coming at that point.

The song was pretty cute. It wasn't a masterpiece, but it had a cool message. I have no idea how Zephyr transformed a bunch of leaves and grass into hair just by cutting it, but hey, I'm not a hair stylist.

All in all, the episode was very good with its lesson, humor, dialogue and characterization. 8.5/10.

As for this picture, it's also very good. Fluttershy may look annoyed, but I think that manestyle really suits her. Zephyr does have some real talent after all.
