Next Scene:

Previous Scene:

This one came together quicker than I thought it would. I tried some new stuff out, including some more shapely shadows, a different filter, and a few other small things. How's the "My LotR Pony" text in the corner working for you guys? I like having it, but I can fade it out if it feels in the way.

I've got Elendil being played by an unnamed (according to the MLP wiki) pegasus pony. I pretty much just picked him out because I thought his mane looked great; very kingly. I've got Daring Do as Isildur (yeah, I'm using a character from a book in a show to play a character from a different book which was adapted into a movie ;p). I know he doesn't have a weapon, but a little known fact about Isildur is that he was a champion applebucker. No sword necessary. He'll be snagging the broken Narcil in a few scene's anyway =P. Then of course Octavia as Elrond.

No Gil-galad here. I might be able to maybe get him into the fight against Sauron scene, if I can convey both him and Elendil being slain. Anyhow, I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

I'm looking at a busy week ahead of me, but the next scene should be pretty awesome, and I'll be working on it whenever I get the chance. :D

One last thing: since these pictures are primarily vector-based, I see no reason not to upload very high resolution images. If there's a demand for lower resolution versions (say, for example, if you've nearly filled your hard drive with pony pictures and need to conserve space ;), I can upload that as well and put a DL link in the description.

Update: At the request of :iconrorycon:, I am making the source files available. The SVG file includes all my reference pictures, and all layers are named in the PSD file. I hope looking at these files will be of use in one way or another.

Awesomeness! Is this any scene in particular (such as the Battle of Dagorlad, in front of the Black Gate), or is it just a generic picture of the Last Alliance? :)

I think Daring Do makes a great Isildur, as Aragorn was descended from him and apparently looked quite similar to him; and Daring Do is the pony with the closest appearance to that of Rainbow Dash. I also like the Pegasus that plays Elendil, although I was kinda secretly hoping that he would be a little bigger (he was 2.41 meters tall in the books). :P

Looking forward to the next picture; and hoping you add some dwarves in as well, if possible - the King of Moria ("Mareia"?) came with a few thousand to join the Alliance. ;)

Love this series! Might I ask why you put this and the last one out under a standard copyright, and not under Creative Commons, as you did the first? Since under CC it's permitted, I've printed a few of "First Look" out to give away (not sell, all credit to you). With the full copyright, I need your permission.

Sorry about that; I've been half asleep when uploading the past two scenes. I updated them both to use CC now. Thank you for your support!
