The Wrong Crowd for a Celebration by harwicks-art The Wrong Crowd for a Celebration by harwicks-art
I've always liked the classic fantasy vibe the show has used from time to time (although they seem to be drifting more regularly into modern times with Season 4 especially)... and if there's one thing every classic fantasy story needs, it's a tavern for the heroes to gather in.  Admittedly, judging by the crowd above they might have taken a wrong turn somewhere along the way...

Anyway, have a little something to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!  Only with very little green in it.  Still, it was a fun image to do, and I'm quite happy with how it turned out.  It also allowed me to tackle a lot of the antagonist side of the cast that I haven't managed to draw in any prior works, so that's always fun.  If you get the chance, I'd recommend looking at the larger version of it.

Nice, but why is Fluttershy dressed like a rabbit?

are they surrounded by old enemies?
oh dear...
but if Twilight can't come up with a way out then I'm sure Pinky can!

Looking back at this, you can't really say that all of these guys are bad or a real threat now because: Gilda has been reformed into a sweet fan favorite, Garble has been forced by Ember and Spike to renounce his toxic thoughts against Equestria, Trixie is just an insufferable jerk, Iron Will was never evil, just misguided, Auizotl is focused more on Daring Do than on the Mane Six, and I don't think Rover is going to be much of a threat to anyone,
urzapw2000 Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2017
you're probably right about those ones but what about that white cat?
looks like a trouble maker to me!

My only complaint is that Ahuizotl is cutoff. But I guess you didn't have enough room. So dispite that, it's a great rogues gallery.

Pinkie is going to break into that one song that Frodo sings at the Prancing Pony isn't she? Or the one Merry and Pippin sing at the Green Dragon.

This looks awesome. The detail and shading alone are fantastic, but you've managed to capture the individual personalities of each character, too, so double kudos to you! :D
