The refrence! Love it! But besides the point, looking at he picture I came up with a little saying, "Magic may tear through you, but true magic needs a body, a frame. That's where we blacksmiths become of importance. As I always say, nohing cuts better than an enchanted blade!"

I am a blacksmith myself, and seeing how dirty and how hot my tongs get, I don't think I want them in my mouth. Alas, we earth ponies don't really have a choice.

Yeah. I heard it for the first time just a week after I posted that comment. Funny thing is tough. It was with my thief character who have never used a single spell thus far.

Heh. I would expect that from any blacksmith. Most likely none would recognize the pros of magic and "fancy stuffs".

It's not at all. This is all Equestria Prevail's stuff. Nothing about it has anything to do with any fanfiction whatsoever. It's the fanfiction writers who take the art and use it as inspiration or as a title card.

Just hope for her that she doesn't hammer with her mouth.

It is a big head-cannon thing. i will put all my head-cannon in a PDF text, using both images and text to world-build the FiM world. Ex: i will explain how i think that the royal guard works, how they fight, how they train, this sort of thing.

that"s cool! my OC Sparkswift has a huge respect for the royal guard and he wishes to be one but in my mind he can't because he has a little sister to take care of after his parents were killed in the changling attack on Canterlot and the royal guard is a very elite thing and it's hard to get into. i also have lots of good ideas and i have a great imagination!

True, magic can be used by unicorns.

*Roleplay mode on* But as a pony rune knight that proudly serves Princesses Celestia and Luna, I use both spells and a wide array of melee and ranged weaponry, and I am exceptionally skilled at both. *Roleplay mode off*

Nonetheless, our pony blacksmiths are the finest in the land!

not sure how i found this but it is amazing.

the light is stunning but in honesty my real love of this down right comes from the fact that is a convincing way to black smith as a earth.

garented this will inspire me and i thank you for that.

though the exact way the claws work and why a hammer is need confounds me (my head cannon is "hammer hoofs" where you put on a leather "glove" that has a hammer head on the end giving fine art persesion as it is literally a extension of your leg.)
