The Reunion by SmellsLikeBeer The Reunion by SmellsLikeBeer
Okay, I had a little hurry with this, and right now when I'm writing this I'm in a hurry. My train is leaving soon and I have a terrible hungover, but I still wanted to finish this now. So it's not perfect and all that.
Anyway, I got inspired by some current events that I faced during last week. Nothing that dramatic at all, but yeah blah blah blah and so on.
Personally I wouldn't categorize this as shipping, but I don't mind if you do, you can think whatever you want.
Anyway, I'm happy if you like it.

The third part of the series of mane six in our empty world. Links to the other parts:

Would you mind if AI used some of your images in a YouTube series I am doing? All credit would go to you, of course!

Dude; ponies plus Nirvana, the Joker, Black Sabbath, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and the Lostprohets. You even have interesting things written on the trash. You are amazing!

"If you're good at something never do it for free."
"Smells Like Teen Spirit."
"Gimme Shelter"

Batman, Nirvana, The Rolling Stones, and Ponies combined in a Fallout-esque setting...?
If I weren't half-asleep right now, I'd have nerd-gasmed like crazy.

I look at these pictures, and synopsis "ponies separated and stuck in our world, but all humans somehow gone and it all so abandoned and ruined" pops up in my head.

I've heard those quotes somewhere before, but I don't know where.

One one sentence come in mind while I watched this piece you've made.

In a world of darkness and blandness, the friendship of a friend can bring colors in your life.

I'm sure those ponies brought colors in the life of a lot of people. Nicely done. I wish I could hug one of them... or both.

Looks like the "Nobility" has dragged Equestria wayyy down. Poor Celestia must be on a long bender wondering just when she lost control. Not even the Elements were able to prevent it.

I hope if you don't mind if I ask: what kind of material did you used to make this.

:iconsmellslikebeer:
SmellsLikeBeer Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012
I don't mind. Same as usual - quite light watercolor illustration paper, ink and nibs for the outlines and hatching and cross hatching, then watercolors and a small brush for the little color. If that's what you meant? (:

Holy shit. Artistic, and adorable. The contrast of the world and the ponies is amazing. The hopelessness of the world contrasting with the hope of the ponies is just...wow.

I can't...I can't even say anything else about it. it's just that fucking amazing.

Helps that the penmanship is amazing, as is the coloring.

If this isn't perfect by your standards, I really want to see what is.

Yeah, it actually says so : D but the point is actually that only "smells like" is clearly visible, and then in the lower left corner is this beer can that says "beer" on it. So it's kinda my secret signature, but let's be quiet about it ;)

That is beyond strange, my English teacher's name is Kurt, and he's the Soccer coach, and always has teen spirit. Nice signature though, I wouldn't be clever enough to do that.

I love how well the color compliments the only bit of "goodness" left in the world. Leaving the rest in black and white really gives an emotional feel.

I was initially pretty creeped out by the picture, actually. It's cute, but depressing at the same time. Almost like a ray of hope is trying to shine through the gloom of an abysmal world, but it's massively overpowered. Well listen to me ramble on. It's look good. Nice job!
