One Year With The Winning Pony by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen One Year With The Winning Pony by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen
One of the reasons thre was few art in the past 2-3 weeks.^^'

So yeah, 'The Life and Times of the Winning Pony' also the 'Winningverse' soon will having it's one years anniversary and I also wanted to contribute in it somehow. And as an artist, I think a big drawing is the best way, right.XD

I can't tell how much this story, how do they say, grow to me. You could see that, as there are a tons of drawings I made just for this story. Probably this is the only fic I'm following for the longest time (for 1 years since it started). Well, I never really been a big fic reader, or the type of person who reads novel like books in the begining.^^' But with this fic, it's different. I always happy if it's up-dated and always jump on it and read it. Well, at least when I have time, and I don't have to study or anything.^^''' Also, this story and universe made me love to background ponies, I have never really think about, and their 'winningverse' personality became my headcanon, totally.XD And for the future, I can tell you, I can't wait to draw more for it.;)

So yeah, this is huge. The coloring and shading didn't take as much time as I thought it will. Most of the problems come from that, who should I include.
Like an example: From the Mane 6 of course I had to include Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash, as they have an importent role, than I needed to include Pinkie Pie too, 'cos she and Rainbow a thing, and somehow I had to add Rarity and Applejack, because they love-hate relationship thing had some part in the earlier chapters. But than, if I included them all, almost everypony from the Mane 6, but not adding Twilight would had just feel weird. And Spike...I just felt bad for the poor guy.
So yeah, in the end I could easily add like, the CMC, some members of the weather team, ect. But, look at that tones of ponies! I think there are more than 10 there. This is the most ponies I drew on one picture at the moment. And it almost make me nuts.

But! In the end I really like how it came out. And like I said, for an aniversary a big picture is the best thing to do.^^

If you still don't know what is 'The Life and Times of a Winning Pony' or the 'Winningverse', you can find the fic here: [link] and the Winningverse (also Cloud Kicker) group here: [link]

You are now cursed. You must send this on or you will be killed. Tonight at 12:00am, by Bloody Mary. This is no joke. So don't think you can quickly get out of it and delete it now because Bloody Mary will come to you if you do not send this on. She will slit your throat and your wrists and pull your eyeballs out with a fork. And then hang your dead corpse in your bedroom cupboard or put you under your bed. What's your parents going to do when they find you dead? Won't be funny then, will it? Don't think this is a fake and it's all put on to scare you because your wrong, so very wrong. Want to hear of some of the sad, sad people who lost their lives or have been seriously hurt by this email?

Annalise [Surname Removed] :She got this email. Rubbish she thought. She deleted it. And now, Annalise dead.

Louise [Surname Removed]: She sent this to only 4 people and when she woke up in the morning her wrists had deep lacerations on each. Luckily there was no pain felt, though she is scarred for life.

Thomas [Surname Removed]: He sent this to 5 people. Big mistake. The night Thomas was lying in his bed watching T.V. The clock shows '12:01am'. The T.V misteriously flickered off and Thomas's bedroom lamp flashed on and off several times. It went pitch black, Thomas looked to the left of him and there she was, Bloody Mary standing in white rags. Blood everywhere with a knife in her hand then disappeared. The biggest fright of Thomas's life.

Warning... NEVER look in a mirror and repeat -'Bloody Mary.Bloody Mary.' Bloody Mary... I KILLED YOUR SON' Is it the end for you tonight! YOU ARE NOW CURSED

We strongly advise you to send this email on. It is seriously NO JOKE. We don't want to see another life wasted. ITS YOUR CHOICE... WANNA DIE TONIGHT? If you send this email to...

NO PEOPLE - You're going to die.

1-5 PEOPLE - You're going to either get hurt or get the biggest fright of your life.

5-15 PEOPLE - You will bring your family bad luck and someone close to you will die.

15 -25 OR MORE PEOPLE - You are safe from Bloody Mary

SORRY this is just ff

This is truly a master piece, Darkpen. Can anyone identify which pony is Cloud Kicker's mom, if she is in the artwork at all? Great work, once again. ^^

Any chance of a solo Star Kicker?
DerpMind Featured By Owner May 8, 2013
While I like the idea of the story, male characters are pretty much nonexistent, and there is a huge abundance of F/F shipping, so I refuse to read it. I do appreciate the effort that has gone into the winningverse, but I just don't personally like it.

Nice art though!

Stunning. I've been following that fic since it started [and waiting with baited breath for the next chapter mind you] and I have to say that this piece captures it beyond compare.

Dgs-Krieger Featured By Owner May 1, 2013
Whoah, a YEAR? That's impressive...

It's the same for me, specially in the case of Cloud Kicker. She's Ponyville's official sexial obsessed! XD You will understand why it freaked me out when I saw her along The Doctor Whooves.

Anyways, you made a great work here ^^ I think Chengar may want to change the cover of the fiction.

(Why are there ponies I don't recognice? O.O)
