Matchstick by Rain-Gear Matchstick by Rain-Gear
Was feeling pretty bad recently so I vented a bit with this and just threw colours and saturation around. 
Wasn't originally going to post this here but I figured why not.

Wow.  It's rare for me to find a piece that's throbbing with emotion, despite being completely still.  The colors are really soft, yet wonderfully intense.  And those EYES.  I feel like they could burn right through me.  Amazing :3

Ooooh! Sunset Shimmer has joined the dark side after learning that Twilight with her student... Starlight Glimmer. This makes even angrier when she realizes that she's been replaced with that stupid mare. So, her plan is revenge against Twilight. Actually more like attack Twilight and kill her. Once she's gone, she thinks she will be "real" the princess of friendship. (magical laughter)
Ahem! So yeah... that's my vision of the story from this piece. She looks so badass.

I can't help but hear this song when I see this image.

Your art on the pony's verey realistic. I like it, it gives it a god of war like tone to shimmer (and yes I'm calling her shimmer), in my oun series :chronicles of nex: sunset shimmer is not a pony or a human. (at least not if nex can recall) she was actually one of her robotic race called :the heroes: (inspired by Lego hero factory) she is the twin sister of her brother the main protagonist Julius nex who was not the smartist. and her real name was :human name: Elizabeth :hero name: (witch is a heroe's last names) shimmer. The hero core (or quasa core) on her chest as a hero is what how she is. that explains to me of why her eyes are glowing she was built in hero factory along with her kind.  and heroes do use magic but only in their 10.0 forms or in thair equestrian pony forms. And they use quasa magic instead of equestrian magic (obviously becaus quasa are from space).

and quaza magic is like any other magic, like the elements of harmony, dark magic  conjering magic, alicorn magic, and any like any other magic like teleportation, telekinesis, a transformation spell, age spell, and so on.

but quaza magic  is a powerful magic that only quaza can use. The ura glows even brighter than alicorn magic, quaza magic has a verry harmfully defense to not just equestria but from the galaxy itself.

it has weaponised and painfull spells like taking a quite mark out off of another pony, creating powerfull and stronger forcefields around its user,  fierind quaza energy out of thair horns (or out of thair hands if it's user is humanoid),  making its user's enemy's powers go out of controll,  grow quaza crystals, open doors to a multiverse (meaning go through alternate universe, dodging verry fast,  fast fighting (faster than rainbow dash),  using thousands of gunsand swords all at once,  surviving from falling off of hights falling from a cliff or building,  running as fast as rainbow dash's flight,  and landing on vehicles without falling out even flying ones,

yah quaza magic has a defensive but dangorous spells that the user can fight with dispute the power level the more the user keeps on using the spells from it the more the power level slowly rises. It's like extra sizing.

This is super intense, I love it! The way you made her hair look fiery like the matchstick is super awesome, along with the eyes glow and add contrast to the piece is spectacular!

Man am I glad you posted this. I've been coming back to this image all day trying to think of a good comment. The best idea I've had was "Sparky!"

If I had to critique this, I'd say her horn is too low on her forehead. But I only noticed that after 24 hours of ogling the painting.
