Flag Raising Over Equestria by SouthParkTaoist Flag Raising Over Equestria by SouthParkTaoist
Update: Brony Off used this image in a video for their Equestrian Hymn. I am a big fan of patriotic anthems and their piece was exactly the kind of music I had in mind while drawing this picture. [link]

I download almost all the pony art I view, so therefor the watermark bothers me more then other people.

Okay, I know you didn't do this intentionally, but there is a giant creepy eye in the clouds watching them do this! Am I seriously the only one who sees the eye? Come oooon, look at it!

The thought of a hymn playing in the background makes me think more of the Battle Hymn of the Republic (just with the characteristic pony changes. "Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of Her sun..."), but Brony Off is definitely talented.... much like yourself.

This is a great piece, reminds me of the Iwo Jima flag raising... thing. I don't really know what to call it.
I digress, it's great either way, you most certainly possess a great talent, my good sir.

Thank you for your kind comment.
I actually love the Iwo Jima and other flag raising pics with inspired this one. I was actually listening to Battle Hymn as well as the Patton March, Hail Columbia, and Aces High March when drawing this.

:( I didn't know it would look that way when I originally planned out the sketch but so many people brought it up that it looks like that to me now.

Glad you like it know, I love dramatic sunset scenes so I thought this would be fun to draw.

I'm sorry for bouble post.

I think that you modeled this picture on the one of the US propagand posters... I don't know the name, but I've seen it: some soldiers are planting the flag some like this. And if not, the model could be a French Revolution poster, [link] - el elinque :).

Greetings

No propaganda reference, based off my own imagination. I love flag raising images like the Iwo Jima one so I was inspired to draw this one.

Hail Equestria, righteous land!
Hail, ye heroes, heav'n-born band,
Who fought and bled in freedom's cause,
Who fought and bled in freedom's cause,
And when the storm of discord was gone
Enjoy'd the peace your valor won.
Ever grateful for the prize,
Let its altar reach the skies.

Firm, united let us be,
Rallying round our liberty,
As a band of ponies joined,
Peace and safety we shall find.

For a second there I thought Twilight was holding a stick over a fire with her friends on it like a shis-ca-bob (or however you spell it) XD

Oh that's a different way of looking at it. :( I am still working on this piece so I will try to change it so it doesn't look too creepy.
