Hi, this piece is absolutely amazing.  ^~^   I actually have a question to run by you.  I'm an admin for a Facebook Discord page, well.. err, kinda solely running, at the moment anyway.. and out of a few choices I gave the fans for a display pic change, this was the most voted for by far.  Would it be at all possible to get your permission to use it for a while?   I'll be sure to credit you, and provide a link right back to it.   ^-^

discord is the trickster, and by nature his intents are not always clear. when it came to the pludner seeds, he clearly was enjoying the chaos but setting them on the right path................ hell i would dare say that he would have been incapable of stopping them himself anyway. they consumed far, far too much power from the tree; it was beyond both him and the regal sisters.

with the latest episode, he clearly felt like trolling and messing with them............. yet not harm them. it is pretty clear that discord had no nkwoledge of the tatzlwurm. for not only did it compeltely catch him off guard when it came up, but he had no defense against its illness and was himself weakened for real.

ultimatley he is the trickster. his intentions will always be hard to determine till the resolution comes, though i have a feeling he does not seek to just disrupt the world. the reason why i think is Fluttershy, making the leash rather innaccurrate.
discord is a heidonist. he acts for his own pleasure. and it just so happens the element of kindness touched something long forgotten in his own heart. he wants to keep that feeling alive in him. though it leads to a question. how far will the beast of chaos go to ensure it stays?

"It's all a big game, where the rules are made and bent by the master and the pawns of it don't even know they're playing".

There's lots of symbolism behind this picture, I love when pictures make me stare at it for a long time and try to uncover what's meant to be told with it. Of course, the artist may have a solid interpretation of every aspect but viewers can also add of their own harvest to the lot. I really like you shading style, it is very straightforward and smooth. Oh, and you did a fantastic job in drawing Discord, his anatomy is spotless.

I also noticed there are 2 missing pieces with only their bases on the table, I might presume those pieces are Princess Celestia and Princess Luna, hmm... interesting!

I really like it how Discord is portrayed here.
He is still the evil mastermind and plays his games with Twilight and the others.
Like in the show.
It's just the question what he plans now and why he doesn't attack even when there is nothing that can stop him anymore?
I hope he acts openly again soon, so that we can find out!

Chessmaster, of course. But also manipulative bastard, not enought clever and charismatic (in-show) to be a magnificent bastard.

Well done there, awesome pic :)

Discord plays by his own rules. And he never tells those rules to anyone else. Or that they are even playing a game.

There are many more examples of how there is something more cruel than a child. But I agree with your theory of Discord being in a suspended mental state of juvenile delinquency while his body is portrayed to have an age beyond his mannerisms.
