You Stole Away My Life by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen You Stole Away My Life by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen
Inspiration song:…

It's super late over here, but I really wanted to finish this and upload it today, so here it is.

This was the first time I tried to imitate broken glass. I used this tutorial I found over Google:…

A little bit more Sunset Shimmer. I blame Mandopony and his awesome song about her that I made this drawing.

It doesn't really matter how Equestria Girls handeled Sunset Shimmer, I still freakishly love the concept idea behind her (I'm talking about being Celestia's former personal student of course).

If she was an orphan adopted by Celestia, that would explain how she could fall so far down.
DavidZDragon Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2016  Hobbyist Filmographer
Well, that's something I wish to know about. To learn about her, I'd like to begin where she began. On the very day she was born.
bruiser128 Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2016  Student Traditional Artist
At this point I am fine with not knowing since she is
already an interesting enough character as is.
DavidZDragon Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2017  Hobbyist Filmographer
Well, I just thought it'd be even more interesting.

Although with the sheer amount of headcanons, we would most likely be disappointed by what they cook up since they have to following demographic guidelines.

This is probably what she was thinking about as the royal guards escorted her out.

Dammit, Youtube says the inspiration song is listed as "private" (I hate when that happens).  And it's a damn shame too, because judging by the quality of this picture, it must be one Hell of a song.  Know of any alternative location where I can listen to it?

I Thimo it's not private anymore
And I'm also pretty sure, this is the song for her 'Inspiration"

i love this picture , will you draw alicorn sunset shimmer in the future  ?
Typplo Featured By Owner May 1, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
It seems that Sunset Shimmer (in the broken mirror part of the drawing) is an alicorn.

Two words for you sunset shimmer.  "Victim stancing".  Look it up.
Articunos-Bitch Featured By Owner May 27, 2014
Celestia was wrong: Sunset Shimmer was ready to learn advanced magic like she wanted.
Everything that happened to Twilight should have been Sunset's. And she would have handled it better.
KironStrife Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
I don 't think her ability to handle the magic itself was the issue.  It's that whole adage "with great power comes great responsibility".  She may not have been responsible enough.  And the majority of the times we don't see the problems ouselves.  Celestia may have seen too many signs that she could possibly be corrupted by the power, and so wanted to hold off a little longer until she was ready. When a master says one is not ready, their words are to be heeded.  I see this as the same scenario as Ti-Lung and Master Shifu from Kung Fu Panda.
Articunos-Bitch Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2014
Celestia does have a history of bad judgement though; her sister pre-Nightmare Moon, Discord with Tirek, not noticing Cadance was an imposter, a LOT of ponies were put in danger by these lapses in judgement. Maybe this was one of them. Maybe she didn't could have handled Sunset's impatience better? Maybe Sunset should have had a few friends to talk sense into her. <shrug>
You bring up a good point.
KironStrife Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Well yea. I'm not sayng Celestia's infallible.  But I think she knew Discord would betray them.  She doesn't strike me as the type that is that foolish.  And you're right about noticing Cadence.  Can't they sense magic, kind of like a smell?  Each pony's different, and changling magic is way different than alicorn magic. She totally should have been able to pick up on that.  But the fact that Sunset Shimmer was impatient, is proof enough that she wasn't quite ready yet.  But do I think she could have eventually handled it?  Absolutely!  I think it was Twilight's natural facination with learning, and mostly her modesty, that helped her out.

You Can Blame Yourself. You Brought it All On Yourself Sunset Shimmer.
Will Not Do Any Good To Blame Others For YOUR Failure. Shame Shame.
alexwarlorn Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2014
Considering what happened when Sunset tried to ascend when she got her hands on the crown, it's safe to say Celestia was PROTECT HER from HERSELF.

The comic seemed to put a bit more sense into Sunset's actions.
