Hydra Vs. Shield, Equestria Style by harwicks-art Hydra Vs. Shield, Equestria Style by harwicks-art
Call me crazy, but I feel like the adventures of a captain and his winged partner fighting threats to the nation could make for some pretty entertaining viewing.  I'm not sure where that idea came from though...

I admit, I like Cadance and Shining Armor.  True, they're still rather vaguely defined, but so far their roles haven't really called for them to be any more sharply defined than Cheerilee or the Cakes.  I remain curious about their histories, and how they got to where they were when we meet them.  What adventures caused Shining Armor to move up the ranks?  How did this Princess of Love come into her own as royalty?  I've seen and heard some of the stories from the comics and tie-in books and such, but I imagine there's plenty left to explore with these two.

Of course, I mostly wanted to draw a homage to a certain movie now playing, and to see if I could translate that monster design into something more detailed while still keeping in the spirit of the show.  I think that the end result looks like it would make one hell of a snow-globe design.

Cadance: "I really hope all our dates aren't gonna be like this!"

Shining Armor: "Same here, but we gotta survive THIS one, first!"

This could be a damn fine spinoff from the main series.

I love what you did with Cadance's mane here. It just screams "spunky, yet feminine". And of course Shining Armor is just badass.

Wow, in the show the hydra looks less intimidating. Here, jeez they're more dangerous looking. Awesome :)
