Koroshi-Ya's Album Art by feather-ponyart Koroshi-Ya's Album Art by feather-ponyart
This is the Album Art for Brony Musician Koroshi-Ya!

I wanted the hand to look obviously realistically and Rainbow Dash to look really 2D and flat, simply to bring to the fore the concept of reality and fantasy, and I think it was achieved.

You can find the song on YouTube here ---> [link]

Here's what the song is about...

"This song itself is one I hold close to my heart, it's a story of a man who falls in love with the idea of Rainbow Dash and as a result falls prey to delusions and insanity, she even begins to speak to him in his mind with a false promise of reality. As the song progresses, his entire life has passed, he's pushed everyone away and is now alone on his deathbed but suddenly, he sees Rainbow Dash, or does he?"

~ Quoted from Koroshi-Ya :iconmetabolikjeckel:

I did reference the hand, so here's the source for that ---> [link]

EDIT: Yeah... I know it looks like she has five legs, but they're actually her thighs/knees, the light distorts the other.. There are actually a lot of things I would do differently in this image now, but it's taken off so.... I can't bring it back now lol... We live and learn -shrug-

It's ok,
I'm still here,
I'll always be,
Your best friend,
It's alright,
I'm loyalty,
I'll be here 'til,
The very end,
Come on, let's fly,
Just, you and I,
Let's race 'til we touch the sky,
Never let you fall,
I was, here for it all,
And I'm here, for you now.

 

Them FEEELS

I don't know how exactly but this painting does what I expect a good painting to do, it tells stories without using a word, very touching. And that's not pretty easy, so, very good job!

I wonder if i'll be blessed with an image like this as i'm taken to the afterlife. I have no idea what comes after death, but if it's anything like this... well... there's nothing for me to fear anymore. It'll always end in a happy ending. But for now, I guess my imagination is all I have.

I've never been one for harps and angels, and a traditional Heaven has always seemed boring to me.

Perhaps...perhaps I might be ok with this, when I die. I think I would like to go to a place very much like Equestria. They seem so happy there. I think I could be happy there as well.

Maybe. One day, maybe.

I can see you have already heard this before but...

With the combination of hearing the song, seeing the image, (... and even thinking one day I may end up like him...), Made me just want to just sit there and stare into this image and just cry my heart out...

You see... I am actually not far from being just like that guy in the song, not for having that undying love for Rainbow Dash but for the love of that reality, where everyone is... always happy... No more fighting, no more wars, no more unneeded deaths, no more crying, no more pain, just happines, joy, laughter, love...

I would gladly give up my insanity to live in that fictional world then in this great big pile of saddnes, anger, hate, and death we call reality...

Who wouldent want to live in a world like MLP FiM...

Now don't get me wrong I don't want to opt. out of this life... Just wish with my very being that it would be... Better...

I digress...
I realized that I was heading that very same path as the guy from the song. I have always lived in my own reality since I was small, even with me living a sheltered life I still knew there was so much pain and sorrow out there. After hearing that song and seeing that image I now have split emotions...

One wants our reality to be like MLP FiM still... Where as I said before "No more fighting, no more wars, no more unneeded deaths, no more crying, no more pain, just happines, joy, laughter, love..."

But this new emotion that came up from this combination...

The other wants me to re-think how I live my life and not let this one pass by un-noticed... Meaningless... For fear of ending up like him... No matter how beautiful it would be to finally make it all a reality even at the cost of m own sanity...

All in all you have hit my very soul with this image... I thank you for helping me re-think my life... Seriously...

I... Really needed that. Thank you... For both the image and the hug. X3

Seems this has been stored inside me for a while, until I finally saw your art and came to that realization. At the time it seemed so inocent to have that personal reality to call home when this reality becomes overbearing. But now because of you and that song... I've come to realize how out of control it can get. I wasen't so far along myself, was scared when I saw that. Im 22 years old and I've spent almost all my life in my fantasy world...

Well now you can say that your art has changed someponies life! XD

Honestly thank you very very much for helping me out with this building problem I had unknowingly growing inside me. I will always remember the great help you have done for me, with out even knowing about it at the time.

I haven't had this many feels since I read My Little Dashie months ago. I just now heard the song for the first time today and had to come to this page and comment!

Her expression in this image: So perfect. So calming, subtle, relaxing, mesmerizing, and at the same time, perhaps a little sad. How does one capture so many expressions in a single image? I don't know, but you did.

There's so much peace in the expression. I could stare at that for hours and be relaxed, like nothing matters. That would seriously be something that I could die peacefully too, as if it would be the last thing I could remember, that it's alright.

I want to keep rambling because I feel I haven't accomplished the justification of awesome this image has, but I'm fairly certain you've gotten the point

So. Much. Feels.

Feather, the song touched me as much as the song did...I honestly shed a tear or two hearing it...the picture topped it off...

Everyone has a bit of <3 for Feather and her amazing drawings!
