Twilight in armor by Larsurus Twilight in armor by Larsurus
Twilight is best pony. This took around 16 hrs to make.

Had to rush this one because Celestia got denied for the armor contest , since I made it before the contest began. >_<

Ready of Battle!
I think you really improved in drawing armor, because this is by far my favorite of your designs,
probably because you used more shading to make the armor look more metallic and put in more details
and ornaments. I especially like the crescent sun ornaments around her eyes.

I also really like the idea of having some sort of horn protection, since it is one of the more vulnerable parts of a unicorn and important for battle, though I have to say, that I prefer the horn piece here over
the ones in the Celestia and Luna images, because it offers more protection and is less blade-like
and I don't think it would be wise to use your horn as a means of physically attacking your enemies.

Besides, I think, that you could have left out the golden bulges over Twilight's eyes or made them a bit different (maybe rounder), since they seem a bit like large golden eyebrows this way, which looks a bit comically.
Altogether you did a great job though :D
Thanks for your thorough comment :)

Out of all the armors I've seen, none have ever had anything to protect the horn, which is the main weapon of a unicorn. It just felt natural. 
Here are some scraps from when I was making the blade designs for Celestia and Luna:

I like an armor to be a bit intimidating when the person wearing it is so darn huggable, so large angry brows seemed appropriate.
Your welcome :)
I guess my favorite desings would be Luna's first and Celestia's second helmet,
because they aren't too extravagant.

Just curious Larsurus, Would you mind if I tried Re-drawing this in traditional form? I would give you full credit of course as the original artist. I have always wanted to draw another pony inn armor after i re-did flutterborn, please reply back if you can :3
