Commission - Shade the Royal Guard by Valkyrie-Girl Commission - Shade the Royal Guard by Valkyrie-Girl
And here we have a commission for the lovely :iconkaitlynd34:. I really like drawing ponies in armor and his armor was especially delightful to work on. He wears it very well if I do say so myself.

As usual, please don't use this without the permission of the commissioner. They paid for it so they get to do as they please with it.

Awesome armor! Love the shading on his tail as well.
Is the symbol on the cloth bits his cutie mark?

Armor is great fun to work on. And no that's not his cutie mark. It's more an emblem of his office, as far as I understand it.

But only just a little bit of it because I want to shoot myself if I have to draw any more than that.

lol, yeah, I know how painful chainmail can be to draw, it's so repetitive.

Did you see the Entertainment weekly article saying the end of season three...Twilight Sparkle will be transformed into a princess with wings? -.-;

I have a theory about that actually. Only time will tell if I'm right though.

Im not fond of it personally she has no royal lineage and suddenly she transforms into a princess?? I can understand her being an amazing unicorn like other great ones but to transform her is silly.

Well people seem to be forgetting that the summary of the episode says that twilight cast a spell that switches everyone's cutie marks and destinies. I think what is likely to happen is that in casting that spell, Twilight accidentally created an alternate reality where she is a princess and so when she fixes everyone's cutie marks, she will also so back to normal. But as I said before, only time will tell if I'm right.

Really Val, an alicorn/winged unicorn OC? Those things are always terrible (no matter how cool their armor is).
