When all of life is a stage, it feels pretty nice to be the director.
This is a commissioned cover for Cold Lightning

. I've always liked symbolic abstractions like this. Very strong in clarity, and also a nice bonus when someone catches the reference. Oh, and, of course, I also love drawing the mentally insane. "Something about Lightning Dust just seemed a little 'off'. Sometimes she didn't react the right way to the world around her, and sometimes the way she reacted was positively frightening... but it wasn't until she laughed off nearly killing a couple of ponies that anypony actually realized just how messed up she was."
