Applejack and the Water Dragon of Neighpon by Lionel23 Applejack and the Water Dragon of Neighpon by Lionel23
Illustration work by :icontiaamaito:*tiaamaito.

“But it is one thing to read about dragons and another to meet them.” ― Ursula K. Le Guin, A Wizard of Earthsea

This drawing was done awhile ago and I had agreed with Tiaamaito to hold off on posting this so that he gets his due credit (it made EQD almost a day after he posted it! XD), so now that such a time has passed... I'm posting this as part of the illustrated scenes from my fanfic.

Pictured above is our wonderful Applejack (dressed in the native clothing of Neighpon) and her first encounter with the Water Dragon of Neighpon. More details will be added once my writing catches up to this point, as to not let too many spoilers through!

I'm assuming the being controlling the dragon is a pony/dragon?

Aaaaand now I want to see the world-wide adventures of the Main Six.  One pony for each of six different countries.

Actually that is the whole 'series' I'm working on and hence the 'Equestria Expanded' entries in my DeviantArt; all the various places and countries they will visit!

This reminds me so much of the Shadows in Blue Dragon. Anyway, if Neighpon ever becomes canon in the show, this is how Neighponese characters should look. Your design for the Water Dragon is clearly inspired by the ancient art and mythology on the country your character is based on.

Hehe, the artist did a great job making my design come true.  A more 'mature' dragon than the friendlier ones in Equestria - a bit more mysterious and omnious looking.  Thank you for the compliment!
