The Harbinger of Nightfall by Jamey4 The Harbinger of Nightfall by Jamey4
And this is coming from a guy who isn't too sure he likes the idea of Alicorn Twilight. But, I'm gonna reserve my full judgement until the episode airs; I'd love to be proven wrong.
...but that doesn't mean I can't make her look epic in the meantime. :3



Credit to my good friend :iconnianara: for making the amazing Alicorn Twilight Vector used in this wallpaper :D

As with your previous artwork, I like the way the grass looks on the hill Twilight is standing on. It looks very detailed and realistic which adds an epic feel to the artwork. I also enjoy the little lens flare on her eye that I assume you did apart from the vector art.

The main thing that catches my eye is what the hill is placed on. I can't tell if it is fog or if it is water and I don't think that as bad. I think it as quite the opposite and like how we don't know for sure how high the hill is. It allows us to play with our imagination and determine which of the two elements would make the picture more epic. Not only that, but the fact that the night sky is in the background as well doesn't point out whether it is either water or fog because either element would still look good in front of it and it doesn't mess up that epic feeling by choosing the element some people wouldn't agree works with it.

In short, I think that this is a better artwork than your Luna piece you asked me to critique the other day because of the imagination I feel it sparks in the mind of its viewers.

Kudos. /]*[\

My sister's all grown up.  *sniffles*  So proud of her.  *gets back to the real world* Yeah, your eyes did not deceive you.  In my fanfic, Twilight is my biological sister.  Jamey, if I gave you an image of my character, could you do him in vector form as a grown up stallion?  It's just a suggestion, if you want to take up the challenge, I'd be fine with it.  Maybe you could even do an image with me and her standing next to each other with our individual glows.  I'll fill you in more if you want.  Again, it's just a suggestion, if you don't want to do it, that's fine.  If you do, that'll be an extra treat.  Best of luck on your future projects!!  :)  (And I don't have a vector program so I don't know if I can provide the vector.  Any suggestions?)

I can't do vectors. I take pre-existing vectors and create backgrounds for them. I'm just a background artist.

and I don't do requests anymore. Sorry. :(

cool pic, but i would've preferred a vector of the official design because the muzzle and legs just plain look weird like this.

This is really awesome! I love your wallpapers!

I don't really understand why people are hatin' so hard on Alicorn Twilight. Although, I do understand that most fandoms don't react well to change anyway. I mean, it's gonna happen anyway, and hey, it has its possibilities. Who knows? Maybe something good will come out of it. And, she'll still be the same good ol' Twilight we all know and love, right? :D

Twilight is my least favorite pony, so having her become an Alicorn infuriates me. Being an Alicorn isn't even a step up from a unicorn, it's like she took an elevator and is now on a completely different floor!! Twilight is the kind of person I would avoid. To by the book and know it all for my taste.

She won't be on a different floor at all. Only difference will be the wings. They said so themselves: Twilight's personality won't change, and she certainly won't look like the Twilight in this picture (it's just an interesting way to draw).

The wings are everything since she won't be a basic pony (this is saying earth, unicorn, and pegasus are like basic forms) anymore. And yah, she won't look like this Twilight, and I doubt doing anything to her will make me like her more.

I'm excited about Alcorn Twilight. But at the same time, I don't want to see it happon, mainly becaus her becauming an alicorn means she'll live on without her friends, and any kind of family she'll have won't last unless she finds another alicorn. What ever happens, I still can't waight to see it.

Great job on the art work BTW. :)

....wait what? "any kind of family she'll have won't last unless she finds another alicorn."
....The genetics in MLP have proven this wrong several times. I highly doubt just because she will be an alicorn doesn't mean she won't be able to have a family with another category of pony.
And I doubt the creators of MLP will be separating the Mane 6 from one another any time soon. Of course that is up for speculation, we really won't know until the episode airs.

Thankfully, she'll end up looking better. I wouldn't have liked Twi to be Celestia-shaped. I love her bodyshape as is, and I'm glad it isn't really changed.
And I'd advise to look at the reasons as to why you dislike it. Chances are that it may be caused by fanon theories about alicorns, which have no ground in canon.
We know next to nothing about them aside from the name, and the way it is looking, what bronydom has been thinking about alicorns will be debunked right away. The change doesn't look like more than cosmetic and is not going to turn Twilight into an omnipotent mary sue. Similarly, the title of Princess seems to be little more than an honorary designation as a recognition of personal accomplishments and an official mandate of command, not an invitation to become some sort of eternal cosmic pillar that holds the entire world up. She won't to abandon anything, in other words.
My own issues have been assuaged by what has been provided in the press release. Look at it, it's actually rather good.

As for the wallpaper itself, 's pretty nice. The sea of clouds below looks a bit eerie, but still good. And that grass looks good as always. Good use of glow effects. Well done.

I agree! I'm betting this will turn out to be a really cool idea. And if we all look back, there was a ton of foreshadowing to this as well.
