I always have trouble thinking of some chaotic mischief Discord sould be doing. I took the idea from this picture for the background: lh4.ggpht.com/_t4lMIR9g6BI/TC-…
Anyway.. I forgot for a while that Discord is cool. I remember it now
thanks for the feature EQD! Really appreciate it as always.
Heh, it's just like in "Super Mario"... [link]

I've also been reading (and quite enjoying) "Chaotic Neutral", where you used this as the cover image.
Actually, it was only because of the little tid-bit that said "cover art is mine" that I got curious.
Because on a brief first glance over the story-page, my initial impression was "random generic adventure, with random image stolen through Google".
The quality of the artwork speaks of time and dedication put into the creative act - thus, a certain level of quality may be also expected in the written word. Therefore, "great cover image by story-author = higher likelihood of people reading it".
... Problem is, you can't tell it apart from all the thousands of people who just google something and use that.
I mean, it's a very lovely image - but for the fimfiction cover version, I'd suggest adding the story-title to it to make it more "distinct" in that regard.
I think you're completely and totally right. I've been thinking of actually drawing a proper cover for Chaotic Neutral since this image actually just started out as a placeholder until I could do so. However, now it's been such a long time, if I change the cover art I wonder if it would be jarring for people who have been following the story for a long time.
I'm drawing for a convention in a couple of weeks, but I think after that I probably will sit down and make a proper cover for myself with a title. I think you've given me some veru good reasons to do so that I didn't think of before.
And thank you for all the kind words
I too am both artist and MLP-fanfic writer myself.
Well, actually I was thinking you could just add a title text to the image you already have. There seems to be enough space to add one in the "sky"-portion of the image.
Just be sure the title doesn't look like it's been plainly added in Microsoft Paint, and you should be good to go!
But I see your point.
What I meant to suggest was to add a "fancy looking" title text that fits the image itself quality-wise as to not create the impression of "stolen randomly off a Google-search, typed over with Microsoft Paint".
Love how Discord spits while he snores
Your presentation is very great.
Another wonderful image.
just started watching MLP:FiM and was prepared to hate it, but i love it. Applejack, Fluttershy, and Rainbow Dash are my favorites.
Discord who gives a break to the ponies from his usual chaotic jokes.
Who would have guessed that "chaos" can be so peaceful ^^ and cute.
I call this "amazing" which means I have to fave it now
