King Takes Queen by Whitestar1802 King Takes Queen by Whitestar1802
Artemis: Brother, we're so glad to be back home...but did you truly have to send us to the moon? I thought such treatment was reserved for thy exes?

Solaris: :O_o: What-? Brother, I never sent any of my girlfriends to the moon!

Artemis: *raises eyebrow*

Solaris: Alright...perhaps one...or two...


Next up, Solaris as King Henry VIII! :D Don't worry, you guys made it very clear from the Cadance pic you didn't like me changing the hairstyles too much, so this one's close to the origtinal pics of Solaris. ._.

Silimar to how I imagine Celestia to be similar to Elizabeth, I like to think young Solaris would've behaved like Henry. Wheras I think Elizabeth was a young girl who began as awestruck by the life of court but grew into a responsible queen, I think Solaris would've taken being king for granted, and used it to get all the mares. :lol: So, pretty much a womaniser who'd send girlfriends to the moon if the displeased him. But, unlike Henry who died a sad death full of failed wars and failed mariages, I think Solaris would've learned from the lonliness of sending Artemis away and grown into a true ruler. :)

So, for this pic the hardest part was trying to convert the coats Henry wore into a pony version that doesn't look too stupid. I'm still not 100% happy with it, so I'll probably change the cut when I paint Artemis. Also, those sun medalions were surprisingly difficult to draw just so you know. Also, if you're wondering why Solaris' eyes are open, and the other pics in the set have closed eyes, let me explain. I portrayed the girls with closed eyes because it enhanced the graceful air I wanted to give the girls. I also wanted to give Solaris a Flynn Rider esque smirk so he looks smooth and good with women. An open smile was also considered scandalous back then...about as scandalous as having 6 wives.

Fun facts: The title "King Takes Queen" is a phrase I saw often while looking up refferences, used on promotional images of Henry in "The Tudors", a tv show I should really watch someday. :> Also, on the legband above Solaris' stockings you can see the phrase "Coeur Loyal", Henry's personal motto. It translates as "Loyal Heart" and was shows next to a heart usually. Ironic, as Henry was the English king who had 6 wives, no?

P.S. I love Solaris' beard so much.

Next, I'll take a break from the Tudor ponies and head into the 1700's! :D Your hint as to which monarch and which pony I'll be crossing over is "Let them eat cake." (this should be easy for you history buffs, and pretty much every brony knows which pony to associate with cake. :lol: ).

Enjoy. ^^

EDIT: Whoops! Forgot, Lord Solaris is property of :icontrotsworth:, as well as all the other gender bent ponies. All I own is the art. :)

EDIT 2: Cleaned up a bit, fixed ares where the rendering was sloppy, and fixed the jewels (which I..kinda...forgot to finish painting. ^^; ) Last edit for now. :lol:

I love these pictures! ^^ Rule 63 (Genderswap) Ponies are my favorite. You should do one of Princess BlueBelle (Female Prince BlueBlood) that would be neat. Keep up the beautiful work!

Thank you! :la: I actually didn't know Blueblood had a R63 version. I thought everyone just hated him too much to make one. :lol:

You are most welcome! Indeed BlueBlood does have a Rule63 self though there aren't many pictures of her. BlueBelle is lovely too, but I am one of the very few BlueBlood fans. Again back to this picture of Solaris...I love it! Same goes for your art in general. I love the way you make them look so regal and this is exactly how I picture these characters. Just beautiful artwork.

:lol: Yeah, Blueblood fans are a bit of an endangered species. I do think he's okay though, thanks to many many fanfics, so maybe I'll draw my own version of him in R63. :)
