Discord by harwicks-art Discord by harwicks-art
I haven't abandoned these portrait things yet, so have a little of the Spirit of Chaos to prove it. 

I quite enjoyed his role in the season premiere, which answered some of my doubts about "reforming" him in the first place.  I do love characters who can be jerks when one is needed, and the new Discord still fits the bill nicely, taunting Twilight about her coronation and poking at her fears of being left out of the group now that she's been given a new role.  Is he friendly now?  Did he truly let that whole plot of his play out in order to teach Twilight a lesson, as he claimed?  Or did he just successfully remove the Elements of Harmony from the playing field without even breaking his pledge to Fluttershy?  We still don't know why Celestia wanted him freed in the first place as well... is there something coming that will require his allegiance?  And if so, do they truly have it?

I think that in the end the answer will be "yes"... but I would not be at all surprised if he himself questions whether he's playing a long game or if he's actually sincere right up until he truly has to make the choice.

I honestly think everything he did in the season premiere was for the purpose of covering his own rump so that he wouldn't get turned into a statue again for not telling anypony about the weeds (getting rid of the Elements was just a nice bonus). And as for the Elements of Harmony, it's probably best to reserve judgement until the end of the season, but I'm pretty sure Fluttershy is keeping that metaphorical leash tight...

Discord is one of my favorite characters; since even before his reformation. He's so much fun! And having him befriend Fluttershy adds a whole new element to the show- seriously, the best decision Hasbro ever made with the show. Beautiful art!

You know it occurs to me that I don't think I've ever seen you draw Discord before. He looks awesome, but at the same time it's a combination of freaky and funky... He's frunky. Yeah, let's go with that.
