The Pony: An Unexpected Journeigh by Galaxyart The Pony: An Unexpected Journeigh by Galaxyart
I watched the trailer for The Hobbit and the Hearth's Warming Eve episode directly after and this is the result. If enough people want it, I might explore deeper into the realm of Middle-Equestria and the Lord of the ponies.

Clover the Clever ventures out on an unexpected "journeigh" along with her mentor and a couple of peculiar ponies.

I wish so badly that I could favorite this beautiful piece—or like it, for that matter—but it makes no sense to place Twilight in Mr. Baggins' place where she'll obviously be introduced to a company of other ponies, rather than using Spike for the role, who would actually bloody fit in this parody as the small, humble outsider of the group. The artwork looks magnificent and heartwarming, but the content is just another example of how little the fanbase thinks of Spike, and how easily they shun him from the mane six...characters I used to like before wave after wave of fan art like this.

I wish this was a movie. For now, I must sit and wait. And wait. And wait. I really want to watch this happen. My younger brother and I nearly cried when we realized that it wasn't a "real movie" Hmmmmmmm, I might just write some sort of fanfic on this...

I'm pretty sure they spell "journey" the same way we do. I saw your trailer, btw. Great work!

Oh my, this is simply epic beyond belief. Super amazing lighting, shading, and effects. Seeing Clover the Clever about to embark on an epic journey (or rather, journeigh) just makes it even better.
Man, I should really get back to reading The Hobbit... I was really starting to like it, but then I sort of slipped. Oh well, I'll get back to it eventually.
In the meantime, I shall congratulate you for a job well done by favoriting this.

Funny this should pop up now. I'm in the middle of reading a fic that's basically The Hobbit, ponified, and I've been contemplating ponifying the Lord of the Rings myself.

I see that mountain in the background. The texture on the cloak, or the mane, how did you even do that? Needless to say, this looks really good.

This kinda reminds me of the fanfic "Dangerous Business", which is often compared to LoTR.

Lovely parody poster. The lightning is especially gorgeous, and you really get impression of heading towards a new adventure (heh...sorry, just been listening to a Tolkien programme on the radio). An adventure which I'd also love to see/read about! :)

And as far as Tolkien-inspired fanfic goes, there's always "It's a dangerous business going out your door" by Jetfire ([link]) . It combines the style of the show with a pretty good 'epic fantasy' feel to it.
