The Empire of Equestria by johnjoseco The Empire of Equestria by johnjoseco
My little thing about the Princesses ruling Equestria with an iron fist. You've seen it before in previous pics. Added Cadance and Shining Armor to the mix. I always like my Princesses to kick ass and take names.

I normally fav a lot of pictures but rarely comment until I came across this - I love the landscape view as well as the guards in the background.....because of the guards in the same pose, all lined up, it brings out the royal group into focus and because of the limited palette to the guards as opposed to the royal group, it brings the focus to the guards. 
A truly beautiful piece. <3 love this.

Very nice piece! Love the inclusion of Cadence and Shining Armor as they follow behind Celestia and Luna as the troops stand at attention and airships hover overhead! Very awesome!!!

Just looking through pieces of artwork and I come across this.
I, like the previous comment, don't take a liking to humanised ponies. But this... this isby far some of the greatest art I've seen.

Princess Luna is soooo awesome, especially in this other picture of her with the moon behind and her sword unsheathed. It would be sooo cool to have the ability to create this.

Ha! This is brilliant. Damn, have a whole storyline of the small kingdom of Equestria, ruled under the two sisters, as trouble comes their way and almost destroys the kingdom..
And que badass payback scene and the dawn of the Equestrian Empire. :3 
Cadance probably joined the empire as another small kingdom.. And probs fell in love with the captain of the guard. Twilight Sparklez, who knows.

Awesome work, Luna and Celestia really look look like warriors they are, dressed in uniforms, their combat swords by fheir sides. And Cadence keeps on to lok like cotton candy, even her dress is more of a ceremony than of a fight. Shining Armor seems to be a riyal knight, wearing insignia of his lady on his armour. And the knights in the background, their enrmies better to stay low. It reminds me so much of the 300...

I dont know why, but everytime I see this picture, I will always imagine them walking to a huge doors to what ever reason, and when the doors open, a mysterious sith lord will be standing there waiting to face them; FYI Im a star wars fan, and I can see an epic battle between Celestia and luna aganist the sith, which by a way I drew my own sith of how he'll look, while you see a whole sith empire fleet invading the land and imperial troops attacking the royal guards, and its been like this ever I saw this art.
