Well surprise surprise, Esmeralda is not a pony. I just hope I didn't balls it up. I think the next one is... Hellfire.
Oh yes...

Any critique and comments in general are greatly appreciated.

Very nice drawing. The movie and the show are both one of my favorites in theirs respective categories (TV cartoon and Disney movie). Personally I think what I will like see a episode of MLP about a fary tale (after all, ponies have literature) or one about ancient history.

Confiteor Larentia Omnipotenti (I confess to Faust almighty)
Beatae Celestia semper praestes (To blessed Celestia ever protecting)
Beatae lunaris vigilia (To the blessed watchful of the night Luna)
Sanctis apostolis omnibus sanctis (To the holy apostles, to all the saints)

Beata Celestia
You know I am a righteous Stallion
Of my virtue I am justly proud

Et tibit Mater (And to you, Mother)

Beata Celestia
You know I'm so much purer than
The common, vulgar, weak, licentious herd

Quia peccavi nimis (That I have sinned)

Then tell me, Celestia
Why I see her dancing there
Why her smold'ring eyes still scorch my soul

Cogitatione (In thought)

I feel her, I see her
The sun caught in raven mane
Is blazing in me out of all control

Verbo et opere (In word and deed)

Like fire
Hellfire
This fire in my coat
This burning
Desire
Is turning me to sin
It's not my fault

Mea culpa (Through my fault)

I'm not to blame

Mea culpa (Through my fault)

It is the zebra mare
The witch who sent this flame

Mea maxima culpa (Through my most griveous fault)

It's not my fault

Mea culpa (Through my fault)

If in Faust's plan

Mea culpa (Through my fault)

She made the devil so much
Stronger than a pony

Mea maxima culpa (Through my most griveous fault)

Protect me, Celestia
Don't let this siren cast her spell
Don't let her fire sear my flesh and bone
Destroy Esmeralda
And let her taste the fires of hell
Or else let her be mine and mine alone
Hellfire
Dark fire
Now zebra, it's your turn
Choose me or
Your pyre
Be mine or you will burn

Domna Eleison (Lady have mercy)

Faust have mercy on her

Domna Eleison (Lady have mercy)

Faust have mercy on me

Domna Eleison (Lady have mercy)

But she will be mine
Or she will burn!

I love this! I always thought the gypsies would be unicorns ('witchcraft'), but zebras make much more sense! Though I can't quite decipher her cutie mark, may I ask what it is?

It was supposed to be tambourine. The whole monochromatic scheme doesn't really help, but there wasn't anything more blindingly obvious than that.

I'm ambivalent on her face-structure; Zecora's is closer to a pony-stallion's than a pony-mare's. This one's obviously closer to the latter.
Reply
:iconmisteraibo:
MisterAibo Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2011
Well, Zecora's more along the lines of old wise lady from the swamps, only not really old yet. Esmeralda is much more feminine.

Excellent job. Minor the lack of detail on the robe, it's a great vector. The cutie mark is rather hard to analyse. The front plan is nearly perfect, however, the background space depth is really weird.
Reply
:iconmisteraibo:
MisterAibo Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2011
I still have a bad feeling about her standing on her hind legs like this. She couldn't possibly keep her balance. As for the background, it was done rather hastily and yes, the perspective is strange...

Well, the table could have been shorter/smaller and the Zebra character could have sit still while pulling the priest ruban.

If Frollo's still voiced by Tony Jay, then he's the most awesome thing ever.

Yeah, I think maybe just a circle with smaller circles two thirds of the way around the outside would do it. And fit with the abstract, tribal-marking style Zecora's cutie mark has.

I'm actually thinking of one or two total crossover pieces - that is MLP characters in HoND roles. That would of course include Discord as Frollo and Celestia as Esmeralda. And other interesting options.

THAT. THAT IS BRILLIANT.

Mayor Mare would also be a good choice for Archdeacon simply because of her relative age and authority.

BUT FLUTTERSHY HAS THE STAAAAAARE.

Of course, there are certain problems with zebras. For instance, there's only one and no one knows how others look, act and what cutiemarks do they have. Do the hairstyles vary? The colouring? Stripes? It's kinda tough trying to work in dark like this, but it helps that I'm doing ponyfication (zebrafication) and not an original character. Restriction breeds creativity and all that.

Wistan Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Indeed. There isn't much material on how other zebras does look in the MLP universe. Though I assume that they're as varied as the ponies. Maybe not in coloration, but in the stripe pattern perhaps? And as you said, cutie marks, would they call it that, or is it just an identifying pattern. Zecora's cutie mark doesn't exactly make sense (can of course be said about other cutie marks as well, but ponies marks are usually sensible in one way or another). Then again, maybe it makes sense in her culture? Who knows. It is all speculation until it becomes canon in one way or another. I would also assume that the hairstyle varies, Zecora did have long hair in the Nightmare Night episode (even though that was probably a wig), and it did not look out of place. In fact it looked great.
