He had a very interesting idea of drawing ponies as the main characters of "Anna Karenina" and "Crime and Punishment".
Thank you!!! <3
-Twilight as Rodion Raskolnikov
-Pinkie Pie as Prince Stepan "Stiva" Arkadyevich Oblonsky
-Fluttershy as Sonia Marmeladova
-Rarity as Anna Karenina
-Applejack as Konstantin Levin
-Rainbow Dash as...well, I drew her wearing a ceremonial gown (inspired by a picture of one of the Romanovs) and flying next to a russian mythic snake-like or dragon like creature - Zmey Gorinych.
I ain't a brony. But I got friends who are.
The only problem is having their history of poor leadership.
A Prince Myshkin pony would have been fun to see. Though also sad, unlike some other examples, he didn't deserve what he got.
Мне очень нравится эта картина!!!
oh and rainbow dash defendly fits with the picture.
мне аж как-то стыдно стало, что из всего этого читал только сказки и "Преступление и наказание"
Я "Анну Каренину" тоже не читала - только фильм смотрела, и то современный...ну, всё впереди XD
Dont you have economies to save/ruin?
You being destroyed by the kind of brainwashery the government wants us to watch.
I fear for the future of western society.
A person for whom I drew this picture struck me by his knowledge about Russian literature. If you have time, you can find his review among the comments to this picture. He knows all the characters and the atmosphere of these novels very well. I can only admire people, especially foreigners, who are interested in Russian culture. I really enjoyed working on this picture. And I don't see anything wrong with making such cross-overs. It is the same as listening to rock-covers of classical music. Someone likes it, someone doesn't, but it doesn't mean that this is bad.
I personally have nothing against it. I fear for society in general, when I see fan art of anthro-ponies with huge breasts, but not when I see a cross-over of the best examples of classical and modern culture.
Look at this! You turned Crime and Punishment into a cartoon about angry faces and video game jokes! This show is just a laser light show with dumb jokes. And now you sprayed it all over books. Whats next? Mixing the communist manifesto with Thomas the tank engine?
Also, combining actual well-recieved literature with some crappy kids show is just as bad as making them big boobed freaks. Youre defacing the greatest works known to man.
Thats like making the Kardashians perform Shakespeare. Or making the statue of David look like Justin Beiber. Or giving the Mona Lisa some silicon breasts.
Also, I think that this generation is just like the previous ones. But the "least cultured and least respectful" parts of previous generations just didn't leave much behind them. So you are basing your opinion about them mainly on better part of them. Plus "the grass is always greener at the other side" thing.
And we did very important thing in the last ~50 years that no one has done before - developed the Internet. I'm now talking with you. I don't know you, I don't know where you live; probably on a different continent. But we're discussing. Isn't it cultural achievement?
А вообще, Флатти и Рарити мне тут особенно нравятся) А еще Горыныч хороший)
