Turn back by Bonaxor Turn back by Bonaxor
My second attempt on painting Grey Scale.

And here I give you one of my old villains, named Mountain. A giant stone creature, that is walking on two hands. He is like a walking mountain, so his name is right for the character. He is one of the 4 guardians of the Underworld, a place that holds one of the biggest secrets of the world away from hands of those unworthy. The shattered pieces of Elemental Crystal. It is said... that the one that will get them, shall rule the elements of nature, and with it... the power to create... or destroy the worlds.

And what is happening on the picture? If you take the Team Awesome reality, then THIS happens after NMM was banished, and Celestia began to to have problems with herself. But at the same time world began to shutter and she knew that something must have happen to this pieces of Elemental Crystals. So she venture into the deep corners of the world, to Underworld, to find out who got his hands of hoofs on them. And to get there, she had to complete series of trials made by each Guardian. Each one gave her 2 missions to complete. If she succeed, they will show her the way to next level, if now.. then she must leave, and never return.

Picture presents the moment where Celestia completed her trials made by Mountain, and was granted the "green light" to proceed to next level of Underworld.

Oh... and Mountain eye turn color depending on his mood, and he can shoot a laser beam from it.

My imagination completely killed the image for me after I read
"Oh... and Mountain eye turn color depending on his mood, and he can shoot a laser beam from it."

So he's MASSIVE and made of stone but what exactly is he? A worm? A dragon? Or would you prefer he was all mysterious. Really cool regardless.

I know I'm egocentric. BUt this reminds me of my OWN fanfic where Twilight meets Discord's MOTHER. And she's just as huge as this.

I'll admit this picture doesn't seem to be as appealing as your previous works.

For starters the situation is kind of random, with nothing really leading into it artwise or storywise. The image itself isn't dynamic or funny, nor does it give a clear picture as to exactly what this new villain looks like apart from his eye. Celestia appears wispy and uncolored, with even her normally pretty cutie mark appearing like a stain on her rear flank. All this compiled with a lack of speech makes me unsure of what I'm supposed to make of this scene.

Its not the best one, but I was learning how to paint such things. It was a pure grey-scale, and I just wanted to try out few things, and I LOVE the outcome.
And Celestia looks "unpainted" due to the rule of light source, If light is green, then the object will be green as well. You cant get white color on surface lighted up by green light. I tried to make other version where Celestia looked "painted" and it looked a bit... faked. Like she was ADDED to this in bad way.

And again :D I was learning. Next time I will try other thing with grey-scale.

When I read the title, I heard birds telling me to turn back. I think it was from Teen Titans when Beast Boy and Cyborg are inside ravens mirror.

Oh and by the way I POKE YOUR EYE OUT NOW!!!!:turbopoke:
