Shiny Shining Armor by FOERVRAENGD Shiny Shining Armor by FOERVRAENGD
And here's Shining armor!
Considering his shiny tail, I think "Shining tale" would fit him better as a name lol (sarcasm btw)

I will probably make more ponies, mostly because they are a great way to practice dynamic colors in shadows and highlights. Next up will probably be Twilight.

don't forget to check out my livestream channel: [link] I livestream almost every day!

I have an idea for a fanfic called Shining Tale, from this of course. Its when he buys this conditioner that makes his mane and tail shiny. for some reason no one mentions anyones tail LOL. maybe u could illustrate. like his Mane and tail is not rly shiny until he uses it every so often. sound good?

steelfire5526.deviantart.com/a… I did shining armor in a parody of Brother Bear. have u ever seen it, or at least the trailer? If u did, the part where his tail starts waving  I did it in this 1 right b4 that LOL. Imagining it in my head sometimes the first time, I see it breaking apart into just speperate long thick strands of hair. this is not possible, Rarity proves it in Sweet and Elite. It stays together  The only way this is possible with ur design like this, that's what it looks like. if u don't get a clear picture of what it breaking apart looks like, ill show u in a drawing.

I'd think a soldier would be more muscular and less of a stick :/

Only complaint, however. Pretty damn awesome otherwise IMO.

He is so beautiful.

I really like the way you drawn him in a more realistic appearance. Even that way, their personalities are strong enough that they are still who there are. I can see that just by the way you gave his stare.

Horses, ponies are among (if not) the most beautiful animals in the world after all. Not MLP influence. My thought since long ago. Again, nice work.

Shining Armor is a very easy empty vessel to self insert into in the show, if you're an older brother, or fancy being a good boyfriend.

I can't put my finger on why, but this picture made him seem all that much easier and appealing to imagine being like Shining.
