Celestia - Honoring 30 Years of My Little Pony by SouthParkTaoist Celestia - Honoring 30 Years of My Little Pony by SouthParkTaoist
My design for the Empress Card for the MLP Tarot deck I just finished. The Empress card is normally associated with birth and renewal so I made use of this to represent Friendship is Magic birth from the previous three generations. The Empress card is also number 3, so I represented the three ponies here in the style of the previous three generations. As well in the show Equestria (and thus Celestia) was founded by the three pony races, so the three ponies also represent the three races here. Celestia symbolizing Gen 4 is made up of all previous generations and 3 pony species.

But 2013 is the 30th Anniversary of My Little Pony, so here is art to honor that milestone.

I don't like mlp, but I do respect it as a franchise. Long live the ponies!

Technically, last year was the 30th anniversary...

But who cares, this is a beautiful picture.

That's what I said last year when I drew this: southparktaoist.deviantart.com...

But people kept telling me it was this year. Either way I am right I guess.

I think last year was the 30th anniversary of the toyline, but this year is the 30th anniversary of Escape from Midnight Castle, the original pilot TV special.

I can vouch for the toy line. I've got a couple G1 toys that have "1982" stamped on their hooves. (I like to argue for the '82 date because clearly the TV special only got made because the toys were a hit! :D)


Anyway, I like how both the different generations and the different races were represented.
