Through any kind of weather... by Rutana Through any kind of weather... by Rutana
Not too long ago, I was reminded on this vow from "This Day Aria" on the 2nd season finale - and thought it would be perfect for a Valentine's Day Card.
The reason I upload it so early?
Because I really turned it into a printable card, that you can download and use for free. Check out the details on the Printable version:


The vector of the Crystal Heart was made by myself, I traced it from a show screenshot, but changed the lines to be more slim.

Happy early Valentine's Day! :D

Edit:
I forget it every single time, don't I...
Brushes used for the "Background":


Edit 2:
Corrected the little error in the quote. Many thanks to :iconmarikaefer: for bringing it to my attention ^^

Edit 3:
Now part of the DA Valentine's Project.
Happy sending! :)

This is a really nice piece. The only thing I don't tend to like is that the way Shining Armour's eye is gives him a slightly evil look (Probable due to the direction the eye takes and upper shading which denotes a lower light source usually used with evil looking characters). Other than that, this is a nice piece.

Do you mean the shadow of his hair?
I see what you mean with the eye though XD It wasn't supposed to be a evil look though...
And thanks for the comment ^.^

I really like the general idea and you have improved a lot in terms of drawing ponies! However, being the picky person that I am, I gotta say that it is "any kind of weather" and the message of the card is also affected by the fact that this line is sung by the fake Cadance D: With that in mind, the very minimal smile she gives here could create the impression of it being Chrysalis in disguise all over again.

Thank you ^.^
And especially thanks about correcting me. I allready corrected the quote in the image. That happens if you only go by memory I guess :/
And yes, sure it's Chrysalis in the song. But she makes fun of the vow that Cadance and Shining picked for each other - or that's the pony equilant of "In good and bad times" during a wedding. So it's not unfitting. In the real wedding, after they defeated the Changelings, I'm pretty sure they vowed those lines to each other without any hestitation.

I always like it, when they port our customs, holidays or phrases into the show, instead of just copying them.

IKR! Changelings were just some mythology, then they were put in MLP & now everybody knows about them

west european according to the wiki (in english).
But when I take a look at the mythos, it's pretty obvious that it's nordic and old germanic and got adopted by the christian believe, like many of their old myths and customs (they couldn't get it out of peoples head, so they adapted it XD).
The wiki also lists Cornwall, Ireland, Lowland Scotland and Northern England, Malta, Scandinavia, Spain and Wales.

Greek has another mythologic culture, together with ancient rome.

Aww... that's so sweet. Really the only thing I can think of to Critique is just the highlight on the hair needs to reflect hair instead of a solid smooth object. But that's just my opinion it's really good though :3

I know. The thing is, that Cadance in the show also has a gradient to the bright like this in the hair, so I just made it brighter, included the linearts and did the same on Shining, because it looked odd otherwise.
You're right though, it's not the correct way of shading ^^
