Solar Empire vs. Lunar Republic by Faith-Wolff Solar Empire vs. Lunar Republic by Faith-Wolff
I don't own the symbols here
=Emkay-MLP owns them

Anyhoo
OH MY GOODNESS THIS TOOK FOREVER
I AM PROUD

...Moving on..
You're probably familiar with the idea of Luna creating the New Lunar Republic to overthrow Celestia's Solar Empire. It's a popular topic, and most people in the fandom choose a side. A LOT of pictures and most likely lots of fanfics are made for this, so I decided to jump the bandwagon XD

In this picture, you also see the Mane 6.....albeit divided. Half are for the Solar Empire, while the others are for the Lunar Republic. And their designs are a bit different~
If enough people ask, I might draw the Mane 6 in these outfits for people to see

So....whose side are you on?

Hmmm.... Luna is the softer, more gentle of the two sisters; a dreamwalker and reliever of nightmares. The moon is also used as a symbol of love. Fluttershy, check.
Luna wears her heart on her tongue so to speak... her smiles and laughter ring perfectly true. She is also a master of illusion magic, comes across as mischievous and maybe even a bit of a prankster at times. Pinkie, check.
She may act on a whim, lashes out when angered sufficiently and has a really bad history regarding willing subordination to authority. Rainbow Dash, (half)check. Rainbow is fiercely protective towards Fluttershy and might get to command her own airforce. So maybe 3/4-check.

Yes, I'm on the NLR side I guess. And Luna is no Nightmare Moon... she wouldn't conjure night eternal. That would be really stupid.
Anyway, good job :)
I like these 'what ifs'.

Hi there! You are an amazing artist and i absolutely love this image, so i was wondering....im making a blogspot called equestriaunlimited and i think the faction war reps just how liberal and honestlygorgeous the herd can be, so i would like to ask for your permission to use this as the sites banner? In return i will credit you and maybe may i ask if you could become somewhat of a head artist for drawfiends? I look forward to your reply and if you would like to contact me please do so @ equestriaunlimited@gmail.com ~Prophet

P.s. keep up your amazing work

What im planning on doing is taking up 5 artist for a twice a week drawfiend (50 art collabs) the admins are all using the EQU CREW to post everything and youd in a way be helping controlling whos on the and youd be editing and censoring

I think this is awesome, i dont think this will happen in the series or in the comic, but it would be awesome seen one or both facctions working and cooperating or that a bad historical interpretation put the facctions in war, the peace and sign an alliance and both facctions arrive to the nano techonology era, with space ships and space empires, sorry i let mislef go, thanks for the awesome work

i really think fluttershy would go with celestia. she was petrified of luna when she met her. i mean i know luna was redeemed a bit at the end of lunar eclipsed, but i still think flutter would side with tia.

Cool piece of art, though I would have changed around the allegiances in some cases. If we had to have them split 3 v 3 I woulda put them like this:

Solar Empire: Twilight (no brainer) Rainbow Dash (Loyalty is her strong suit) Fluttershy (simply too scared to go with Luna)
Lunar Republic: Applejack (perhaps restrictions on farming gone too far?) Rarity (as a business owner, perhaps the same reasoning as Applejack) and Pinkie Pie......because.....because it's more.......fun?

Personally I would've gone with this lineup:
SE: Dash, AJ and Fluttershy
NLR: Twi, Rarity, Pinkie
Yes, I'm putting Twilight in the NLR. It'd be something like Luna giving her the black book seen in S3, and they decide to start the civil war like this.

thank you~!

actually, someone pointed out how the elements were split between Luna and Celestia in the Season 4 opener, and i actually just need to switch two ponies for it to be the same

my reasoning for THAT would be that, due to Celestia controlling 3 and Luna controlling 3, the corresponding Mane 6 might feel special loyalties due to "Element Connection"
