The Cruelness of Mortality by Jamey4 The Cruelness of Mortality by Jamey4
I decided to do something a bit different than what I usually do in terms of color use; a challenge for myself. Rather than a bright, happy and colorful wallpaper, I wanted to create a wallpaper that was dark, sad wallpaper without much color at all...

This is the result. I hope you all like it, as sad as it may be in terms of it's theme...

Who's grave is it? That's up to you to decide...

I have seen many scenes that have this kind of atmosphere.
Dark, scary, and very VERY creepy.
I even imagine scenes like this and I am a Kirby fan!

Now I have heard about some My Little Pony Fan Fictions and I have seen Rainbow Dash die in "Cupcakes" and Pinkie Pie die in "Rocket to Insanity" and "Pretty in Pink". Its really depressing, but I really love this scenery! If I could mimic this, I would be one happy girl! Keep up the good work!

Do you use photoshop? Or GIMP? I would love to do something like this.
What do you think?

oh wow! It's something interesting and unusual. It looks good, but a little bit too grim. Such dark atmosphere makes me sad. Oh, when she's crying I want to cry with her... It's hard to see her tears. The idea of picture is original. I still wonder who is buried there... Would you say? What do you think? A lot of mist around Twilight makes the atmosphere mystical. I notice that you used 3D effects, it's nice. But I wouldn't use such wallpaper, because it rises my sorrow. Better I put something positive on my desktop. Good luck, artist. I guess I'll find something nice for my desktop in your gallery.

Maybe it's Trixie's? Perhaps Trixie came back, tried hard to outshine Twilight Sparkle, and it became her undoing?

Considering that you haven't made a single Spike wallpaper, let alone one where he's with Twilight (where he justly belongs), my guess is that it is the saddest of all graves... that of a child.

Please prove me wrong at your earliest convenience.

It could be Spike, it could be one of the Mane 6, it could even be Celestia herself. It could be anyone.

It's up to you all to decide who's grave it is; this piece is open to your personal interpretation ;)

...and I really do need to make a Spike wallpaper one of these days xD

Like a real artist, you've chosen to let the viewer decide the emotion and the context for themselves. Well played.

Seriously though... make a Spike one! If Twi is with him all the better.;)

I have heard a guy on YOutube read the story "Pretty in Pink" which is a story about Pinkie Pie dying. I guess this grave belongs to Pinkie Pie.

Or...It could belong to Rainbow Dash after she was killed by Pinkie Pie in "Cupcakes".
