Part 3 of a six-part art cycle that I'm doing for a certain project that I'm working on. Sufficed to say that each of the six pieces will feature one of the Mane Six and will depict abilities characteristic of the wielders of the Elements of Harmony.
Anyone may use this artwork for basically anything, just remember to let me know and give me credit. Thanks!
Also, free Llamas for particularly constructive comments.
UPDATE: Got featured on EQD! *yay [link]
(TLDR, Lore incoming)
"Loyalty's Charisma" is my attempt at a representation of the force of presence granted to the bearer of Loyalty, as well as Loyalty's strong connection to the sun. It has long been understood that Loyalty grants its bearer the power to inspire others, to convince them to follow the bearer into the darkest of situations. However, in addition to inspiration, Loyalty grants a few other things: The bearers of Loyalty are also able to instill fear and doubt in their enemies in much the same way that they inspire their allies. Loyalty also allows its user to surpass the physical limits of their body in moments of great need, giving rise to phenomenons like the Sonic Rainboom. All of this, however, pales in comparison to Loyalty's last gift: the Element of Loyalty can warp the fabric of reality itself. Bearers of Loyalty are renowned as great leaders because everything they do eventually works out. Loyalty changes the rules of probability, turning the most desperate and reckless of gambles into miraculous strategic victories. Bearers of Loyalty always win.
