Not as good as the last one, I know... but I wanted to continue exploring my idea as well as emphasize Disqord's true nature. I have four other strips sketched out (including a conclusion)... I'll try and post them this week, but if I can't, they all can function as stand-alones... so there's no cliffhangers to drive you crazy.
EDIT: Touched up the text a little so those of you who don't have awesome-glasses like me can read it easier.
If I were an Dragon-Pony-Something-Something, I would be as........ as............... well........ you know........ I would sure be something. YES! I know I wouldnt chose, I wouldnt bother, I wouldnt change....... well maybe. BUT IN THE END! I would bring CHAOS.......... no wait that doesnt fits me........... Yes I know, I would bring DISCORD!
What I want to say with this comment? Well i honestly dont know...... Or do I? Better question do YOU know it?! No realy there was no meaning to this....... OR MAYBE?!
So to come to a point I dont like this picture........ just joking (hahaha get it hot lame this joke was?) This picture is AWESOME....... Or is it not?! ....... No it realy is.
I am aware of the dates this was posted, and that it is in no way based on it. But I now say with confidence that it was based on it, as they used the eyes in one of the later ones for the non-video version of the song.
Fucking amazing! You honestly make me jealous of both your story-telling and craftsmanship, fellow brony. This is possibly my favorite of all the pictures, if not then it is at least in the top 3 with numbers 1 and 6.
I absolutely LOOOVE the layouts you choose <3 The way you do the effects in some parts just make it that much better :3 The style about brings me to tears It's so beautiful~ As I have an appreciation for beauty ;D I also really like how you use your words. Like 'Liberating' being a perfect example. I love the pause, and then how it slants and is faintly cloned. Amazing The lightning effect makes me happy.
AWESOME. Adding blood to Discord, is maybe too much to me (I think about him, as a... well spirit of only chaos. He didnt hurted anyone, he just made everyone's [everypony's?] glasses to explode. And makes everyone unhappy and pissed off). But it just fit sooo well, I can't complain. Also cannot missed the lightning behind CHAOS. It's sooo... It fits. Veeeeery well.
Thus, the noble creature tragically becomes a beast of chaos, a harbinger of destruction and despair. It realized that fitting into order was a waste of time, so it took the path that it saw as being the alternative, the path of chaos.
I find that a lot of chaos villains in stories tend to leave order for good reasons, but then they fail to see the alternative to both order and chaos, the balance of the two. This alternative is Liberty.
Very good picture. The art is amazing. And the creature is interesting to psychoanalyze.
Since he is the spirit of chaos/disharmony... he is opposed to any sort of balance. Balance brings order, and a disruption of balance brings chaos.
And as a chimeric spirit, he cannot be psychoanalyzed by a "science" that was invented to analyze humans... He exists outside of the "human"... But I suppose that makes him interesting to try and psychoanalyze.
I suppose I view him more in terms of what he represents, rather than as an anthropomorphic character with a mortal-like mind. Like John de Lancie's other character, "Q".
And since Disqord is the spirit of Disharmony, I would think it prudent for his own existence to be one of disharmony... It is not in his nature to ever be in balance, but it is not of nature for him to be able to control chaos for his own whims... And the power of nature (the universe...etc) trumps the individual.
