Celestia Zecora doodle by blix-it Celestia Zecora doodle by blix-it
Hey guuuuyyyys .... I know not everyone likes girlxgirl romance, and most other people would like to interpret the cutie marks different. That's totally cool! But pleaaaaase bronies, stop being the biggest reason I dislike MLP? If I wanna draw my thing, then I get to draw my thing.

A younger Celestia, back when Nightmare Moon was loose. She goes looking for a solution to her problem, instead she finds a zebra.

Rough drawing, because it's all I have time for, but I like it. <3

My goal in life is to shock you with crack pairs.

Has anybody noticed that Celestia and Zecora have similar cutie marks?

Why the ugly text in the center?

It's called a watermark. Artists do it to keep their work from being stolen and not credited.

Thank you Cari, you do such wonderful art of all my favorite ponies :3 I have a glow-in-the-dark Zecora that was a gift from a friend and while she goes everywhere with me, your pointing out the cutie mark similarity was the first time i saw it! Crazy stuff. Sorta makes sense if Lauren Faust's story bible planned Zecora as a counterpart mentor to Twilight in a similar but different way Celestia mentors her. Good eye!

Wouldn't it make more sense that Zecora's cutie mark is an overhead view of a stirred cauldron sitting on an open flame? After all, she's an herbalist who's known to make potions and elixirs, and we've never seen her do anything even remotely related to the sun.

I always thought her special talent was "illumination", or being wise. I like the idea you put forth, though.

Thanks. I just figured 'Hey, she's a beast at making cures and stuff, so why not make her cutie mark a cauldron?'

Your right! Then maybe Zecora raises the sun, and Celestia just takes the credit!

nah! I like imagining them with different sun related functions. Like celestia is rising and zecora could be enlightening or healing or something.

Actually, Jinchuuriki Zecora. The Death Reaper seal is a Naruto jutsu

Let me explain. The Death Reaper seal is a jutsu used in Naruto to seal a tailed beast inside someone, turning them into a Jinchuuriki. These guys [link]

I hadn't really paid attention to Zecora's mark before. Yet we never see her doing anything sun-related.

Very nice flow and color work. We've seen that Celestia and Luna aren't age proof or unbeatable, so it's nice to see them in a more vulnerable or inexperienced state. Plus, Zecora is a favorite of mine due to her wisdom and species. Makes one wonder just how powerful she really is.

Overall this is a lovely piece.

If I ever have time, I'll be doing my own painted version. I just don't know when. :/
