Until we meet again, older brother by Adalbertus Until we meet again, older brother by Adalbertus
It was a while since I made an Upheaval fanart. I should really do them more often :D
this one is a request from ~stringtheory00
sorry it took so long :D I hope you'll like it

SPOILERS
So yeah, not going too much into details, this is young Celestia and her little brother Terrato right after she met her older brother Oceanus for the last time before his fall.
/SPOILERS
to be honest it's a rather louse interpretation because I decided to make Celestia more badass then she actually was in the story, because reasons :D
also, I was going 100% from memory so try not to point out every inconsistency in here. =P

once again, Upheaval is an awesome series of stories, go read it if you haven't.

Tło za trawnikiem Ci gdzieś ucieka tworząc dziwny kąt - mam wrażenie, że trawa "ucieka do góry". Poza tym (czepiam się jak zwykle) brakuje mi choćby małego fragmentu rany, czy miejsca, z którego ta krew płynie... mam wrażenie, że jest "zbyt czysto" we włosach spod których broczy, ale to tylko takie moje...

wiem, pierwotnie była tam rana, ale nie chciałem przeginać z brutalnością za bardzo. przynajmniej w tym obrazku.

a tło było jak zwykle na szybko =P

Jeśli to Celestia, to dlaczego nie ma pastelowo-tenczowej grzywy? :c
Generalnie cała praca jest bardzo fajna - jak zwykle cienie na postaciach są bardzo ładne. Podobają mi się też jej włosy. Szkoda tylko, że trawa zrobiona brushem. Zapomniałeś też pokolorować mu wnętrza buzi, ale mi często się takie rzeczy zdarzają.

there was Celestia and little Terrato and some other guy, like I said, I was drawing this from memories and I probably got a ton of things wrong :D

Damn i dont remember that one, i do Remember Little Celestia and her guard taking a stroll, when they encounter a mad Oceanus, who then draws a magical blade on Celestia and cuts her (leaving the scar). The guard of course cant really match Oceanus but, but luckily he just leaves.

He was mad because he found out that he wont be the next king (and of course assumed Celestia will take over then as the next by age).

Thats how i remember it. No little Boy Terrato scenes i can remember :P

Ja idę z audioboookiem, bo tak się już przyzwyczaiłam do podłożonych głosów, że nie chcę czytać sama. XD I właśnie ściągam sobie dwa pierwsze rozdziały.

no, audiobook jest świetny :D
ale w takim razie jesteś całe Reckoning do tyłu... oj czeka Cię naprawdę duuuużo niespodzianek :D
w zasadzie każda z Mane6 dostaje kilka leveli w badassowości (ok.. prawie, Fluttershy jeszcze nie, ale już chyba niedługo), a oddział specjalny Black Rose wymiata (i nigdy nie zgadniesz kogo zwerbowali =P)

Ja się tam najbardziej cieszę z roli AJ oczywiście. Nawet Rarcia nieźle została pokazana z tymi ostrzami. Będzie ciekawie...

AJ jest faktycznie ciekawie zrobiona, a będzie jeszcze ciekawiej :D
co do Rarity... gdyby Upheaval się liczyło do kanonu MLP, dla mnie byłaby best pony bez dyskusji. :D

ale zakładając 1 rozdział na odcinek, już przebija znacznie długością serial :D
poza tym rating poszedł by dość mocno w górę =P

yeah, but there are different levels of that too. But I suppose if you don't like those kind of things than I'm not going to convince you to read it. it's a shame really because the characters and especially villains in this story are really great :)

Ok tell me what's it about and why your other fanart twilight getting whipped to death
Reply
:iconadalbertus:
Adalbertus Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ok, the second question is easier, actually, the fragment in the description pretty much tells the story. But in short, a pony broke a law for Twilight, a very important law and he was sentenced to death. She volunteered to share part of the sentence that he won't be executed but instead they will both be whipped.

As for the story... that's a hard question, because a short summary would never give justice to the actual complexity of the plot here.
Basically, Equestria we know from the show is a lie carefully sustained by Celestia to keep ponies happy and innocent, while other ponies that live outside of her realm are fighting in a war to protect it. Her younger brother, prince Terrato (seen on this picture) is leading them to fight against their natural enemies. Twilight accidentally discovers the truth and decides to join the fight to show Celestia how wrong that division is. That's the setting, the story is much more complex, because it shows how characters are changed by the new reality they find themselves in, how their friendships are challenged by other things, like duty, love, jalousie or ambition and how fighting against monsters one has to be very careful not to become a monster himself. There's also a huge amount of world building and expanding on the lore from the show to incorporate all sorts of things. The thing is, the war doesn't really play the main part, especially in the second part of the series. Characters and their individual storied are the main focus.
But like I said, I can't describe 90+ chapters just like that =P
and if you don't want to read it, there's a brilliant audio version on youtube here:

I really like how Celestia turned out. Her (for once) serious expression, hairs, that blood. It just looks cool. And the grass... I mean: Man, the grass!!! :wow:

also, I'm not sure this was the last time Celestia saw Oceanus, though I do think it's implied

I was originally expecting a cute picture of Celestia and Terrato, then you asked if it should be before or after the encounter with Oceanus, so I changed my expectation to something darker, but yes, not quite what I was expecting
