Stained Glass: Friendship is Magic by Akili-Amethyst Stained Glass: Friendship is Magic by Akili-Amethyst
Before you pose a question: :faq: [link]

Inspired by the Stations of Awakening in Kingdom Hearts.

I wasn't quite happy with my first attempt. I posted it early because I was too excited. This one was made using only official pics from the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I gave them black outlines and marbling so as to be more like a stained glass window, and sort of frankenstien'ed a couple of ponies together so I could get Twilight in the pose I wanted.
It's a lot more colorful than my Disney stained glass windows, but I like it anyway. It's more a stained glass window for the show as a whole than for Twilight Sparkle. I will most likely do another for just Twilight, and it will be more monochromatic.

Edit: Nov 19, '11: I fixed the eyes. They were bugging me to no end.
Edit: Jan 6, '12: Finally rearranged the ponies up top so they were symmetrical by type.
Edit: Sept 24,'12: Bigger and better version here: [link]

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic characters and pictures copyright Hasbro and Lauren Faust I think.
Kingdom Hearts copyright Square Enix and Disney.

I used these Crushed Paper Brushes: [link]

First Twilight Stained Glass attempt: [link]
More Stained Glass Windows by me: [link]

I entered the first one in a tee design contest. If I understand the conditions correctly, I have to alter the design so it doesn't use the pony creator that I used. So this will be what actually goes on a tee shirt!

Edit: Contest has been over for a while. I kept forgetting to add this edit! ^^;

If there was a MLP: FiM world destination in Kingdom Hearts, I would say it would be like the Winnie the Pooh world, having assortments of mini-games. In my opinion, I can see that work for some reason XD
Excellent job!

I saw this and INSTANTLY thought: Kingdom Hearts! I could imagine if they made some kind of MLP game with the same kinda angle as Kingdom Hearts, they'd have all of these stained glass images for the Awakening XD

I would like to make use of this within a modification I am creating--for my own personal use, not for release to the general public--for Civilization IV, where I'm basically modding in a religion based upon the Elements of Harmony. May I use it for that purpose?

Only tba as of now but it's going to air during 2012-13. Still its only 13 episodes. I'm happy with MLP though.

Agreed. Though from 26 to 13, reduced by half, worries me a bit. What happened is what I want to ask.

They upped their animation, which takes more time and effort to do... Perhaps that has something to do with it? Less is not always worse. Just look at Avatar! Maybe they were just told to crank out as much as possible for the first two seasons, so that there was a variety of reruns to air, and now that there are a lot of episodes to air, they can slow down and take their time to make the next episodes even better. :shrug: Maybe?

I don't know, animation and etc was great to begin with and I don't particularly see how animation could improve for MLP. It's not like Ghost in the Shell or anything. Maybe they were overworked? But that still seems less of an issue. (Hire more?) There is rumors of a tv movie.
Anyways who knows but them. As long as MLP contines for as long as it can and thensome I'm content.

^^; No, I just put Rarity at the top because it made the ponies symmetrical by type. People are obsessed with symmetry.
