Its the Future Now by Jowybean Its the Future Now by Jowybean
Wow was the pervious episode something huh folks plenty of feel good moments and nice too see another musical episode as well .Diamond Tiara I actually kind of like now, to be honest I never hated her to begin with just disliked. 

This new slice of life scenic idea is one of my longest MLP pieces yet took over 16 hours to paint due to the individual characters .Its not perfect but then again this new painterly style I have developed this year is more expressive then realistic which I think suits the tone of Equestria quite well.

Check out my FIM title card project… new card coming soon ;)

wip below =D

It's very clear you have put an amazing amount of effort and i really think it's nice and cute. This picture has a really happy and safe feeling to it and as well as that i think it has 5 stars of originality and the technique is different from the other art you usually see. I also think it is really nice and the colours stand out and are bright and colourful. I also like how the picture is positive and gives a positive image to the show. It can make you feel nostalgic. Overall this is a nice picture
What do you think?

It's awfully, awfully AWFULLY CUTE! I love the new playground built for the Cutie Mark Crusaders' school! All the fillies look very happy playing together, even the reformed Diamond Tiara! Even the Crusaders looks happy especially when they just earned their cutie marks! I think it was nice of them to decide to help others find their cutie marks! Just looking at such adorable happy children playing together in an amazing playground like this is SO cute and heartwarming and makes me feel all warm and gushy inside! I just really, REALLY love this extraordinary scene! It really touches my inner child! :D

Though I know you drew this before Season 6, I still think the second-left filly who's going to slide down is Tender Taps from S06E04...

Freaking incredible! Did you plan out where everyone was going to be, or did you just let it flow out over the 16hrs?

Ah god... watching the crusaders growing up makes me feel like watching kids of my own growing up. They're becoming such mature little fillies. Tears of Joy

Flame486 Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2015
I can only imagine what the aftereffects are for building a playground like this. Soon schools will be wanting their own playgrounds made in the one from "My Little Pony." Which is ironic considering that it was modified off of existing playgrounds. I wonder if that's how the playground manufacturers get away with selling this stuff. Before it was a normal playground, now it's an MLP playground! 

In response to the actual picture, I just have to say, you put a lot more detail into it than the actual developers did! Very colorful, very artistic! 
FralLeman Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2015
So colorful, so fun!  Beautiful work!
cajobif Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2015
Recess time never been so fun! And hard to stop. Ask Cheerilee.

Awesome work
Corsair43 Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2015
There are pieces of art that remind us all of what is "right."  This is one of those pieces.
And I'm certain Cherilee agrees with that.

(my favorite is actually Dinky's expression. LOL!!)
fotland42 Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2015
It's interesting how they always build these things with pointed or domed roofs. It's so easy to slip off a sloped floor, and surely they know that every surface is a floor.

I suppose it must be a snow thing. I hear that in the dark, unnatural lands where the weather sometimes turns solid flat roofs can easily collapse as they are assaulted by the sky. But that still doesn't explain why they build them that way here, too.
Robshi Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2015
Incredible pic. Really detailed and super adorable. Nice to see Diamond Tiara playing with Apple Bloom after the events of the episode too. :)

Awesome pic, if I want to be picky, I said you forget DT's stained glass. 
anxresi Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2015
Hopefully, that was removed by DT's personal request. I'd say that was her mother's decision to install it, not her's.

This is amazing!  I can identify each of the foals in your pic as ones from that episode.  And they're all really detailed and adorable!  Gorgeous work!  You've captured them all full of joy!

Wow! Whoever thought the day would come when we'd ever say that phrase? :o (Eek)

So there are TWO castles in Ponyville now. Hmm. I'm seeing a pattern here, kinda.
Telaros Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2015
wow that's just amazing. Nice to see you add Rumble and Truffle in there, too. xD

D'awww~ Diamond and Bloom playing tag? Someone in the fandom drew this! My eyes can't believe it. After all these years, they've finally managed to patch things up. And so many artists are making incredible works with Diamond Tiara and it just warms my heart. (Though this one takes the Feels Cake with ease! No competition there! Figured it'd be YOU of all people to put this much effort into showing a nice Sometime Later scene. Thanks for the smiles and the d'awws!)

Scootie and Pip. Man, since Twilight Time I just knew Diamond Tiara was going to get something awesome down the line. So glad we get to move to the next chapter in their adventures. Filly 5 became canon! XD
Sweetie and Silver are so precious there. I think Cheerilee is trying mighty hard to hold in the liquid pride there, seeing all her ponies getting along must be making her feel super proud right now. heh.

That's an awesome playground. lol But Silver better move before she gets bumped off. xD

Snips and Snails. I wonder if we'll ever see them interact with Spike again in the future. Doubt it at this point.

Well, great slice of life moment here. This is just so heartwarming! Thanks again for the feels. That was one hell of an episode. They finally became one.
Without the literal fusion of course… lol

Wish I had the money to have Alpha remake the cutie mark on their fusion character to be more representative of all five's cutie marks.…

I mean, you recall that moment in the episode where the five tears shone and took their place within the beads of her tiara before it shined during "Pony I Wanna Be" song at the bridge? it felt so Rainbow Dash / Twilight Sparkle. You heard how Twilight's cutie mark's stars represents the bond with her friends? Yeah, that's how I felt watching that episode, only in this one if specific events never happened, Diamond would still be listening to her mom and the CMC would be markless.

Sorry for the wordy post. But yeah, just love this pic here. You made my night here. Thanks. This is my new desktop from now on. xD
