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?

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?

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"

Wait, I thought Luna wielded the Elements of Laughter, Loyalty, and Honesty?

this was made before the Season 4 Opener X3;


but that would make much better sense!!

Ooh... But it still looks cool! I may be a Lunar Republican trough and through, but the Solar outfits look better, especially on Twilight.

thank you~!

i might remake this picture in the future~
not only for the fact that my pony art has improved, but for the fact that your question made a LOT of sense to me

If you do...
Yay! New art to look at!

If you don't...
I'd be semi-sad cause of the loss of new art, but my mylittlebrony.com is always there for me.
