In the season finale, the bridesmaids were brainwashed... and I think there was some fighting back. >:]
Of course, one might say that only a unicorn whose talent is magic could perform such feats as Lyra is here, but I think any unicorn can perform feats of magic within their own talent.
So what is Lyra doing?
Playing Queen Chrysalis like a Lyre?
Doing something that involves humans?
I decided that sitting Lyra should be making Chrysalis take a seat.
Naturally that move would be useless if it were a battle of magic, but perhaps Chrysalis is trying to run away, or fly away rather. Who knows? Maybe this mutiny is why Chrysalis brainwashed them in the first place.
Any way you see it, I wanted to draw Lyra doing some epic magic.
The concept of "Background character doing epic feats" is mirrored with my picture of Derpy's Sonic Boom: [link]
This literally was a quick sketch...and even the editing was quick. But this took me several hours for one reason: The lighting. On her body. It's ridiculous! I've never tried this before, and even after hours it still looks messed up.
Hope you like it!
