Good Luck! by Dori-to Good Luck! by Dori-to
This one's for my good friend :iconmyminiatureequine: who will be going away on army training for 6 months.

We started drawing ponies at around the same time and we've been drawing side by side and 'competing' with eachother eversince. It eventually came to the Epic Draw-Off, wich he won fair and square. And now I'll have to wait for so long for my revenge.

I just couldn't say goodbye without making a proper piece about it. I might have overdone it a bit, but it describes my feelings as good as possible.

Good luck on your training, and don't forget to enjoy your time. And I'm sure it'll be one amazing life experience that you will never ever forget. So make the best of it, for us, for all of us... we'll miss you and we'll be here when you get back.

The number of military bronies is amazing. But then, soldiers have frequently been fond of cartoons. Many WWII units had popular cartoon characters as mascots.

And let's not forget the "Amazing Stories" film in which an aspiring cartoonist saved a B29 bomber by drawing cartoon wheels that actually appeared and let the plane land.

There it is. :3

Yeah, they sure deserve a lot of respect. Did you hear the story about the marine brony that had a Fluttershy toy that stopped a bullet: [link]

"Enjoy your time..." :confused: While endangered by bullets and shrapnel? How about "try to get back here in one piece" instead? :O_o:

Well, he won't be going to a warzone. The training must me quite safe, and I'm sure it'll be a great experience that he'll happily look back on.

The art style in this piece is different from what I normally do, but sometimes it just 'happens', you just draw something without thinking and let your heart draw for you... and that is exactly what you see here.

Thank you so much for this. I'm looking forward to see how much you improve over these next six months!

Why wait for revenge when he's going to give us a way to send him mail?

On a more serious note, I'm going to miss him too. I enjoy his work and watching Birdco and Mini chat back and forth about military stuff in Birdco's livestreams.
