Lunaverse: The Hero of Oaton by thelivingmachine02 by touristism Lunaverse: The Hero of Oaton by thelivingmachine02 by touristism
A humanized pony commission by thelivingmachine02, a kind of stylized/symbolic promo art for a Lunaverse (MLP AU where Celestia went mad instead of Luna, who in turn eventually took a mostly unchanged Trixie as her apprentice centuries later) fan fiction in the style of those released online for new Regular Show, Adventure Time, and Steven Universe episodes. You know the ones. 

The story follows as thus:

"Trixie Lulamoon, Night Court Representative, Element of Magic and...kind of a jerk. But she's getting better. With the help of her friends Trixie is starting to realize what friendship could be. But a little ego never hurt anypony, right? When a filly desperately approaches Trixie to save her village, convinced Trixie is the 'Hero of Oaton', Trixie is caught up in the reputation she may not have earned. With two of her friends, Raindrops and Cheerilee, by her side Trixie returns to Oaton to confront a corrupt Lumber Guild. But how much of Trixie's past reputation with the town is genuine and how much was drunken delusion and ego-driven lies? And does she have what it takes to be a hero for real this time, or will ego and doubt get in the way?"


While the premise sounds remarkably similar to that of the Firefly episode, "Jaynestown", it very quickly becomes its own entity replete with catastrophic action, heartfelt promise, and diabolical twists. In other words, Highly recommended, even if you aren't all too familiar with the Lunaverse AU and the dozens (that's right! Dozens! It's a veritable collaborative effort by several authors and growing!) of stories it's made up of.

Lest we forget the artist responsible for this magnificent illustration:


Let me tell ya, the prompt for this pic was a bit loopy, a hard sell (In fact, I'm not expecting it to blow up here on deviant art)  I thought it was simultaneously too specific and ludicrous to be accepted by any artist. Imagine my surprise when not only was it accepted, but the artist that took it was my first choice, the first and best one who came to mind that I believed could realize this insane idea in a creative and stylish manner.

That said, thelivingmachine02 (aka "chris") is currently taking commissions. He's a skilled, reasonable, and hardworking artist that put up with all my eccentric stipulations and gave me an incredibly fair price. COMMISSION THIS GUY! Great at drawing, shading, and coloring! The whole package! GO FOR IT!

Again, here's a link to his page. You can communicate your offers to him by sending him notes:


Irregardless, as indulgent as this commission is (aren't they all?) I hope that even those that don't really have an inkling as to what's going on in it can derive some level of enjoyment from its contents and craftsmanship, if nothing else.

Wow. I should put this in my faves in the event I can think of a Lunaverse Cast humanization (and not just individuals but as a group).

I love this. The Lunaverse needs more fanart, and I like this style for humanized versions of them.

I am literally speechless at the moment. I have no works for how cool this is or how grateful I am for it. So I'm just going to gush about this for a bit and hope that conveys the proper amount of how giddy I am at the moment! Ohmygoshohmygoshohmygosh! Bushel is so freakin' adorable! Trixie is looking straight up stylish and with all the right attitude. I love the expressions, especially Raindrops'! Ahaha, and you got the glasses in there! That's awesome. It's all awesome, the clothes, the colors, the everything. Did I mention Bushel is teeth achingly cute here? Thank you again for this, it has made my whole week!

Now you know how I felt when all of a sudden the Lunaverse had a TVTropes page...
