Sun's Fire Part 3 by MisterAibo Sun's Fire Part 3 by MisterAibo
Part 3 out of 3. Because dA doesn't like large things.
Making this took forever and I think it could use some more work.
Any input is highly appreciated.

Music: [link]
Time taken: 30 hours? I dunno, forever.

A actual song is currently in production. I will post the link when it's done.

Now translated to LA Spanish! Fuego del Sol

I'm not an artist, perse, except with words. But I'd like to try this out anyway.

Let me just say that the art is very, very well done.

I read this twice. The first time without the music, the second time with. Let's start with no music. Since I have NO recollection of the movie in question, the actual wording made little to no sense. Without music and a source, I could figure out that obviously Celestia and Discord has this love affair but he turned evil and she had no choice to stop him. Make sense, except the wording was kind of... weird.

So I went back and listened a long. The music both adds to and takes away from this piece. Obviously, I got some context through the song, so that was a good thing. I liked that you changed the lyrics to fit the Equestria setting, but it almost seemed as if you had to change them a little too much. So following along is great if someone isn't quite sure of what exactly is going on (as was with me).

I think, though, the music could be sort of a source for you and you could make this into your own thing. Taking the idea that Discord and Celestia were once in love and she had to stop him, that could have held well enough on it's own merits.

Overall, I think this is really well done. I guess I just think that perhaps it would have added to it had you told your own story. And it wouldn't have to be terribly far from the music you chose, but rather just using that as a springboard for something else. Don't misunderstand me though, I love this idea. I love the concept of Discord and Celestia in general.

Again, this was great, but it could have been a bit better with your own thoughts entwined within the story instead of rehashed lyrics.
What do you think?

It actually stemmed from the pose at first. Because it's obvious to anyone who's been singing in a shower. Or anywhere he thought people wouldn't see and hear him. And of course, I love the song. And I saw the youtube video for Heaven's Light.

Come to think of it, I could make this into a real animation one day...

I really love things like this. I love when people make their own scene with their own characters (or characters from a fandom) and put it to a heartfelt Disney song. *pocket-picasso does it with her characters lot, and every time I read/listen to them I get chills.
This one had the same reaction.
Keep up the great work :D

It would be truly is difficult to top the Critique done below. So I will not attempt to do so. Rather allow me to offer a humble critique on the insightful vision of your work, the Sun's Fire series.


As soon I began, the tune of the original song swam through my head. This worked to my advance in regards to enjoyment of the comic as I only remembered the tune and not the lyrics. Overall you presented an interesting fanon story line and intertwined it with and existing narrative in the form of the Hunchback and produced a unique piece that was engaging as well as enjoyable.

it is so sad I can't enjoy this comic. because that is not the Discord in my mind.

in my mind Discord is invincible and culd not be stopped by anyone but himself. And because of his love for Celestia me made it look like they turned him into stone. And he came back because he slighty craced again and was sure that his new type of chaos was better that fighting.

I got my idea from this video

Did you think it was a good and likeble way to explain the story?

:iconmisteraibo:
MisterAibo Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2012
Well, it does play to the dimension of some relative good in him. But then there's the question: what is the difference? He might have been turned to stone because he wanted it in this comic as well. Maybe the fact that Celestia resented him made him realize the error of his ways and he gave up. I actually think he could have destroyed her, he could have teleported away, he could have ran or fought. The thing he did - letting her petrify him - could have been the last gesture of love. Being defeated by her, but sort-of on his terms.
I don't think the Elements would have no effect on him if he didn't want them to - the canon is clear on that. He doesn't look like he wants to get turned into stone in S2E2, but he clearly does. As for him coming back - if he could have come at any time, why would he choose a time like this? Wouldn't he return when Luna was still in the moon and the sisters couldn't use the elements again? It doesn't add up.
So yeah, I think he went because he chose to, but that doesn't make him invulnerable to the Elements. He made his choice and he did it for love.

hmm... to be honest I am realy shoked that the reply was not negative. And yeah that was how I looked at him.
You were realy good at makeing the idea sound realy cool.

Im starting to like the brony comunity. But what do you mean by canon? I'm kinda noob on the internet vocabulary.
Reply
:iconmisteraibo:
MisterAibo Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2012
Canon as in set explicitly by the show itself. Like Blueblood being a prince is canon, but him being Celestia's great-great-great-great-whatever-nephew is not.

As for the potential negativity of my comment, why should it be negative? When someone makes up a story, it doesn't end. The reader is the final interpret. You are the one to decide on the details, I just give you the tools. And maybe show you how I to use them to make what you want, not what you thought I wanted. The only limit to your imagination is your own fear.
