Lets face it even though FIM is super fun colourful exciting and entertaining. Most of us Bronies have had our own crazy head cannons or back-stories to what happened in the dark mysterious 1000 years ago
with the whole nightmare crystal empire thing (that still confuses me to this day)
Any way after the two prater of season three I have been building up in my mind a visual idea of how I saw Equestria. Before the birth and events of the mane 6.
I some how imagine this Game of Thrones style war between Equestria the Changeling Empire and the Griffons kingdom
. And it all leading up to Luna’s transformation in to the evil Nightmare
. I picture a lot of tension between these different kingdom and I see it been played out in an epic traditional animation
(no surprise there
. To keep this thing short I have had this one dramatic scene with Princess C meeting with the old Griffon king in his throne room. To discuss the situation of the war and the effect it’s having on their subjects. I chose to illustrate this in a speed painting style at a worm’s eye view showing the intermediacy and concern celestia has for the future and the lack of Alert from the king.
I am nowhere near a writer or a great story teller
(there are plenty of better well thought-out back-story ideas then this). But this is just my own personal interpretation of the 1000 years period that is so interesting and rich for the fandom to embrace and expand upon. It can keep you up for hours
And as an artist its fun to explore your fandom theories in picture form.
Maybe season 4 we will see some Griffons
