Shining Armor's Struggle by AnaduKune Shining Armor's Struggle by AnaduKune
This one was done quicker than the Discord pic. I enjoyed playing with the background and colors with this one.

The idea behind this is that when the Queen of the Changelings derped him Shining had this internal mental Struggle against the constant draining of his energy.

How did he end up in this mess in a first place? I bet Cadence can tell her beloved one from changeling. Why Shining Armor couldn't?

For all the short time this took...it's incredible! The inner turmoil idea is one that really doesn't get mentioned a lot. The only critique I have is the Queen's eyes, although it's cool how they're hidden in the background, look much more catlike...

I did wonder why the Queen couldn't just force Shining Armor to dispel the shield he made.

I like the idea that while his conscious mind was ensorceled, there was still a piece of him that knew what was going on, and was actively fighting back.

I enjoy a pic depicting a bad-ass Shining Armor. Thanks for the effort.

That's a lovely paradox. Drop your shield to replenish, and you die. Keep your shield up, and he drains you and you die

Huh? she drains him when he puts up his shield? She drains his love not his energy.

...you could not have missed the point harder.

Not THAT kind of drain, moron. The kind of drain a power generator feels when the forcefield it powers is getting hit with a super-strong, sustained energy beam. You know, the kind of drain that makes the main characters say "our shields are failing!" THAT kind of drain

Well than douchebag, maybe you should say that instead. DRAIN has nothing to do with getting hit. Check the freaking dictionary if you don't understand. I think my IQ is lowering while I talk to you. I did not know stupid was contagious, now I will be avoiding people like you from now on.
